The latest Marvel superhero movie – Avengers: Infinity War – blanketed the late night talk shows this past week. Given the lack of other guests to mention, I’ll note that Mark Ruffalo and Robert Downey, Jr. both play scientists in this film who are also superheroes. Benedict Cumberbatch is also in the film and plays a neurosurgeon who is also a sorcerer. But with the dozens of superheroes in the film, I wouldn’t expect to see a lot of the practice(s) of science, technology or medicine in the movie.
There were also androids in the mix, or at least actors playing them on Westworld. Evan Rachel Wood was on the April 23 edition of The Late Late Show, and Jeffrey Wright was on that night’s edition of The Late Show.
Finally, a mention of Zach Braff, who plays the lead in a sitcom about a podcaster. He visited Conan on April 24.
