Week in Geek #26: Daredevil Cancelled, Tom Hanks is Geppetto and More

Posted by Anthony Mango Friday, November 30, 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:

Young Justice: Outsiders Trailer

Pumped. Is that Damian?

Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures

Shorts. Of course. Does Disney have a bad marketing strategy with this stuff or what? Why do they feel like kids can't follow things that aren't shorts all that much? And all this filler is lame, instead of exciting, particularly when your trailer shows things we've already seen.

Want to get me excited? Undo The Last Jedi, or at least show me something that Luke does after ROTJ that is cool (even though it doesn't matter at all because TFA and TLJ ruin everything).

The Ten Rings in Marvel Comics

The MCU villainous organization is now part of the comics canon. Very cool! Just don't make the same mistake with The Mandarin that the films did.

Chris Evans "Not Done" with Captain America?

The Russo Brothers have said he's not finished, but haven't indicated what that means. I'm really, really hoping that Avengers 4 ends with literally all of the heroes alive again except for maybe Loki, if you count him, and I'm okay with Heimdall going away for good (so long as Sif is still there), but I want Tony Stark and Steve Rogers to be the new heads of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Avengers in a sense. Give me Rogers as the head of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Stark as the head of the Avengers and they're off-screen during future events, so to speak.

Daredevil Cancelled

No season 4 for Daredevil, which sucks. The third season was probably my favorite of any of the seasons in the Netflix group of shows and I was really looking forward to seeing Bullseye in true form, more of D'Onofrio as Kingpin and so on. They keep saying these characters will live on elsewhere, but if they keep cancelling shows, how will that be? Are they going to announce some Heroes for Hire offshoot series that is more of an anthology where you can spend less time on each character or something? Are they just going to Disney+? Bummer...

Blue Beetle Film in Development

Yeah, sure. I'll believe it when I see it. It's not a bad idea, but how about you get your shit together and do a Batman film and all the other movies you've been saying you're going to do before you start adding more onto the plate that keeps getting washed clean?

Tom Hanks = Geppetto in Live Action Pinocchio

I can totally see it. Awesome. Pinocchio was never my favorite, but Hanks is great.
