This Week's Geek - October 9, 2015

Greetings, Citizens! This week is shaping up pretty well with some tasty tidbits being dropped from both Marvel and DC. 

First off, Marvel Studios has updated their Phase 3 slate of films. They've announced a sequel to this summer's Ant-Man. In 2018 we will get to see Ant-Man and the Wasp. I really like the simplicity of the name and am really glad they didn't go with something like: "Ant-Man 2: Rise of the Wasp", or something in that vein. Evangeline Lilly was very charming in Ant-Man, and (spoilers) I love that teaser of her taking up the mantle of The Wasp. Ant-Man and the Wasp will arrive in three short years on July 6, 2018.

With the announcement of the Ant-Man/Wasp picture, Marvel also moved some other projects around to accomodate. Black Panter will be moving up to February 16, 2018, and Captain Marvel will be pushed back to March 8, 2019.

The Marvel announcement didn't end there. Also revealed were three more dates for untitled films, all in 2020. These three films could be standalone hero films, or sequels to previous movies, but either way we'll stay tuned.

 

DC/Warner Bros. have released some new costume images and concept art (below) of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.  It feels like we're weeks, if not days away from getting a final trailer for the movie. The movie has received a rating (PG-13) which means there's a final cut of the film. So now all we have to do is wait.

 

The last thing I want to share is the final trailer for the new James Bond film Spectre. I really like the direction the series has gone with Daniel Craig. Casino Royale is one of my favorite Bond films. Quantum of Solace, while not the best, is best viewed as a back-to-back sequel to Casino Royale, as it opens moments after the previous film ends. Skyfall is a beautiful film with a lot of great elements. I think one of my favorite aspects to Skyfall is that instead of getting bigger and bigger, the action and drama get smaller and more personal as the film closes. Anyways, I'm really excited about Spectre, and like The Force Awakens, I've kept myself fairly closed off to information in regards to them both. The trailers and official images are about all I've looked at so far, and I really want to keep myself in the dark as to the direction these new films are headed.

Thanks... and stuff.

It's been a good week for the Reel Comic Heroes podcast. We launched our Intro and Superman and the Mole Man commentary episodes. The download numbers look very encouraging, so Thank You for downloading and listening to the show. We will continue to add new episodes, and will incorporate some of the feedback we've received in order to make this show even better.

Here are some things I found this week which you may enjoy:

Over on StarWarsMinute podcast, they reviewed the trailer for Episode 1  - The Phantom Menace as a precursor to their new season. During the review they pointed out a really cool video on YouTube. Apparently someone recut the Episode 1 trailer in the style of The Force Awakens teaser trailer from a few months ago. I have to say, when you rearrange The Phantom Menace and use the music and sounds from The Force Awakens, I still get chills. Link below for the video.

In other awesome news; Marvel released a few promotional art pieces announcing the team lineups for Captain America: Civil War. Joining Cap will be: Falcon (and Redwing!), Winter Soldier, Agent 13 (Sharon Carter), Hawkeye, and Ant-Man. On Iron Man's side will be: Black Widow, The Vision, Black Panther, and War Machine. No word yet on which side, if either, Scarlet Witch and Spider-Man will be on. 

Meanwhile back at the (Skywalker) Ranch. Via the official Star Wars Instagram account a few more scenes and dialogue were shown. There's a great bit of what appears to be a standoff between Kylo Ren and Finn (who is holding a blue lightsaber).
