Week in Geek #13: Alec Baldwin in Joker, Edgar Wright 007, Disney Play and More | Fanboys Anonymous
Welcome to another edition of WEEK IN GEEK here at Fanboys Anonymous—a rundown of some of the events, news and stories that went down over the past few days in the geek culture spectrum.

This week in geek culture Fanboys Anonymous nerd recap

Here are some of the topics I felt like voicing my opinions about:

Edgar Wright for Bond 25?

Well I didn't see that one coming, but if it's true, it could be interesting. I think Edgar Wright is one of those guys that is overrated by a lot of people, but has the potential to do a lot of great things, if given the right projects and passion. I haven't seen Baby Driver, but I heard some good things. So long as he doesn't come into the project wanting to change things for the sake of changing it, he could work out real well.

Disney Play

This is the name of Disney's streaming service. I have two reactions to this. First off, to the people who don't have dirty minds, this makes a lot of sense. Second, after the James Gunn situation, woof, that's a bad name.

Alec Baldwin Cast as Thomas Wayne in Joker

More of a reason for me to not trust this Joker movie, as Thomas Wayne shouldn't be in it. But hey, The Shadow is Batman's dad. Ha.

Never mind. He's apparently not playing the part.

Matt Smith and Dominic Monaghan Cast in Star Wars: Episode IX

Did they cast them as "retconning The Last Jedi"? No? Okay, then they're probably as superfluous as Holdo and I shouldn't care.

Alan Tudyk Cast as Mr. Nobody in Doom Patrol

Neat. I don't know much of anything at all about Doom Patrol, so I have no comment on that, but Tudyk is fun.

Mark Raxton in Spider-Man: Far From Home?

Is this going to be the type of nonsense where they have just some random person on the bus be "Mark" and ruin the potential to use the character in the future, like they've done with about a dozen people already? Look, I love when you use a character that is from the comics in a spot where they make sense, but don't flat out waste them. Molten Man isn't some super awesome character like Norman Osborn, but still, if you're going to do Mark Raxton, have him be Molten Man and have him fight Peter in one scene.
