Week in Geek #24: RIP Stan Lee, Toy Story 4 Teaser, Detective Pikachu Trailer 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:

RIP Stan Lee

Sadly, the inevitable came as at the age of 95, Stan Lee has passed away. Of course, it goes without being said that this man is a legend in a caliber few ever are able to achieve. He's the top of the food chain in a very select group of individuals like Jack Kirby, Bill Finger and so on who are responsible for crafting the modern mythology of pop culture. He's reach through these stories and characters is undeniable and cannot be overstated when you look at the impact even one particular character like Spider-Man has had through so many lives, let alone the pantheon as a whole. He was charitable, personable, and by all accounts, a truly fantastic human in so many ways. Imagination itself was boosted by his presence and takes a major hit in his absence. Excelsior.

Toy Story 4 Teaser

There isn't much to go on here, so I'm stuck with the same thing I've been thinking from the start: all three movies have been great, so I have no reason to doubt they'll pull this off, but you never quite know if someone is going back to the well too many times or not. This story of a non-toy becoming a toy and struggling with the idea of wanting to be a spork seems hilarious to me, and I'm seeing this movie no matter what anyway, so yeah, thumbs up.

Detective Pikachu Trailer

What the hell? This has no right to look like it could actually be good. This premise is ridiculous and somehow, it looks decent?!??! What world are we living in???

Wait...is that it?

I could have sworn there was at least something else I would have found interesting to talk about this week. Weird...
