Geekly World News – March 10, 2016

Welcome to the latest edition of Geekly World News, our round-up of all the biggest news from the world of comics, video games, movies, and more. Today we’re talking about Marvel’s Iron Fist, Microsoft’s Hololens, and Disney’s Big Hero 6.

Marvel’s upcoming Netflix show Iron Fist has found its leading man in Finn Jones, who you might recognize as Ser Loras Tyrell from HBO’s Game of Thrones. The casting for this role has been the subject of much speculation and debate. While the character of Danny Rand has always been portrayed as white, a number of people were hoping that an Asian man would be chosen to play him for a variety of reasons (there are plenty of articles online about this topic if you want to know more). For my part, I think it could work either way depending on how the issue of race is handled in the story. Marvel Studios’ casting has been excellent so far, so I’m certainly willing to see how it turns out before passing judgement.

Geekly World News – February 19, 2016

Welcome back to Geekly World News, our round-up of all the biggest news from the world of comics, video games, movies, and more. Today we have the latest on Assassin’s Creed, Daredevil, and Deadpool.

Ubisoft recently announced that there will not be a new Assassin’s Creed released this year, and that the next instalment of the franchise will come in 2017. You may be wondering why this is news, since it’s essentially an announcement that something isn’t happening. However, this will be the first year that an Assassin’s Creed game hasn’t come out since the release of Assassin’s Creed 2 in 2009. I have personally been burnt out on the series for a while, having loved AC2 and Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood but getting diminishing returns from then on. I still haven’t gotten around to finishing 2013’s game, and I’m not particularly eager to get to the ones from 2014 or 2015.
assassins-creed-syndicate-et-alI think the series could really benefit from a longer development cycle and more time between releases, and it looks like Ubisoft agrees. Gamespot has some quotes on the matter from Yves Guillemot, Ubisoft CEO. He said, “The goal is not automatically to come back on annual cycle but to come on a regular basis. We saw it was time to give it lots of time so [developers] could really work on the property and all the mechanics to make sure we could take [the series] to another level.” I want to be excited about these games again, so I’ll be hoping that this new strategy works well for them.

Geekly World News – February 13, 2016

Welcome back to Geekly World News, our round-up of all the biggest news from the world of comics, video games, movies, and more. Today we’ve got news about Batman v SupermanHarry Potter, and Star Trek. Read on!

The final trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been released, and it’s quite a doozy. Until now I’ve merely been cautiously optimistic about the movie, but now I’m getting truly excited. I think this trailer does a really good job of making you want to see more, unlike the first trailer (which I found to be too dour) and the second trailer (which people have said reveals too much — I’ve managed to avoid it so far). Let’s hope my newfound excitement for the film is justified when it comes to theatres on March 25, 2016.

Welcome back to Geekly World News, our round-up of all the biggest news from the world of comics, video games, movies, and more.

LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been announced by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and TT Games, alongside a really charming trailer based on the original trailer for the movie. In addition to the events of the film, the upcoming game will also include elements that fill in the time between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. I’m curious to see what that entails when the game is released on June 28, 2016 for a wide variety of platforms.

Welcome back to Geekly World News, our round-up of all the biggest news from the world of comics, video games, movies, and more.

JLA
The Justice League is coming back to television with Justice League Action, a new animated series currently in the works at Cartoon Network. Bleeding Cool reports that the format will be similar to Teen Titans Go!, in that each episode will be comprised of two 11-minute shorts. Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill are reprising their roles of Batman and the Joker, respectively, though we do not yet know who will be voicing Superman and Wonder Woman. As a big fan of the Justice League and Justice League Unlimited animated shows, I can’t wait to see if this new show captures that magic once again.

Welcome back to Geekly World News, our round-up of all the biggest news from the world of comics, video games, movies, and more.


The first footage of Wonder Woman, the upcoming movie staring Gal Gadot and directed by Patty Jenkins, has been revealed, and I think it looks great so far. I think the WWI setting is a brilliant choice, and Gal Gadot seems like a great fit for the role. I’m excited to see how it all turns out when the movie is released on June 23, 2017.

Welcome to the first ever edition of the Geekly World News, the Rogues’ Gallery’s news round up!


First up, we have the trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane, the surprise sequel to 2008’s Cloverfield.
The trailer features John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and John Gallagher, Jr., and notably does not feature the found footage style of the first film. The film is directed by up-and-comer Dan Trachtenberg, and I’ve been looking forward to seeing what he can do with a feature length film since he released the short film Portal: No Escape in 2011. Now I’ll finally have my answer on March 11th of this year when the film is due to be released.
