Week in Geek #33: Spider-Man Far From Home Teaser, GLIPP and More

Posted by Anthony Mango Wednesday, January 16, 2019
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:

The Green Lantern Intergalactic Police Patrol

Um...I don't think GLIPP is a better thing than GLC with the Green Lantern Corps. If you were renaming anything with that franchise, I'd think it would be better to rename the individual soldiers within the GLC so we're not calling the characters "Green Lantern" and having to distinguish by their real names, as to me, "Green Lantern: Hal Jordan" is still missing an element than what we do with the military. "Sergeant Hal Jordan", for instance, could be referred to as just Sergeant, but in a world of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, etc, it's still confusing that when you tell people "Green Lantern" you have to then do a whole discussion on "which one" you're talking about. Anyway...GLIPP sounds dumb :)

Black Widow to be Rated R?

Rumor has it, they're at least considering this, but c'mon. This isn't going to be rated R. It's just a slow news day/week.

M:I 7 and M:I 8 in Summer 2021 and Summer 2022
Tom Cruise tweeted this out. Christopher McQuarrie is returning and they'll be filmed back-to-back. I'm so down. These movies just keep getting better and this team knows what they're doing.

Possible Villains for Disney+ Shows

Kid Loki and Kid Thor against Ulik the troll and Karnilla. I'm unfamiliar with Karnilla, but I always thought it was strange Ulik wasn't in a movie yet.

Agatha Harkness (who I'm unfamiliar with) as the lead villain for a Vision/Scarlet Witch story about trying to give Vision a soul. I'm intrigued.

Clint Barton training Kate Bishop to be the new Hawkeye with Trickshot as the villain. That makes perfect sense.

Bucky and Falcon enlisted by S.H.I.E.L.D. to take down US Agent. SUPER into that idea, but I still really hope both Cap and Stark don't die in Endgame :(

Lady Sif against The Enchantress makes a lot of sense, and Beta Ray Bill being involved sounds cool too.

War Machine dealing with theft of Stark tech. Maybe that can be Spymaster?

Spider-Man: Far From Home Teaser Trailer

Happy and May flirting? Whaaaat?

Ugh I really hate how they're sticking with this MJ thing.

Nick f'n Fury. The man.

Mysterio looks cool.

Side note: Why does every trailer nowadays have a 1-5 second pre-trailer teaser thing advertising that it's a trailer? Ridiculous.

Batman: TAS Character Kyodai Ken Joins the DC Comics Universe

I'm all for when they use characters from preexisting material instead of making up a brand new character that fulfills the same exact purpose. Kyodai Ken wasn't someone I found particularly memorable, but hey, he's out there, so you might as well use him, right? Very cool.
