Week in Geek #11: Star Wars Films Cancelled, Trailers and More

Posted by Anthony Mango Friday, August 17, 2018
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:

Wolverine Has "Hot Claws"

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this boils down to "his claws conduct so much heat, being metal, that the build-up of that allows them to be super hot" and not much else, right? So why is everyone so bent out of shape about this? It's not like they replaced the adamantium with fire, right?

Wally West is only in 3 Episodes This Season on The Flash

So dumb.

Obi-Wan Kenobi Movie NOT Happening?

Ewan McGregor doesn't seem to think so, and why not? It's only the easiest, most beneficial, best possible option for a spinoff, right? This group of people working on Star Wars after Lucas sold it really just don't know what to do. (Not that he had the best ideas all the time, either, Jar Jar)

Iron Fist Season 2 Trailer

"I didn't ask for the Iron Fist" - yeah you did, dude, when you challenged the dragon. I really, really hope they've learned their lessons from the last season and how damn near every Netflix show is a few episodes too long and drags the stories out too much. The trailer looked fine, but I have my reservations. At least it's only 10 episodes instead of 13. That will help a lot.

Star Wars Resistance Trailer

This looks like a copy and paste job from Star Wars Rebels and something that will spend too much time trying to get us to follow some plucky kid's journey to fill in the gaps of a convoluted story that will have absolutely no bearing on the main films whatsoever. Sadly, I can't get into it. Remember, The Last Jedi killed my enthusiasm for Star Wars.

Tatooine Spinoff Film Cancelled

Stop trying to think you can make a story out of everything just by cashing in on nostalgia.

Note: This has been another very slow news week from my perspective of someone who pretty much only checks out the film side of things. Lame.
