Week in Geek #53: X-Men vs Fantastic 4 Civil War, Robert Battinson, Toy Story 3 IRL 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:

Robert Pattinson IS Batman

I haven't seen any of his movies, I think, other than Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I honestly can't remember a single movie I've seen him in other than that. But he's got the look, and I think he'll do a good job.

I bet you weren't expecting to hear that, were you?

Batman has a Twitter

They never had an official Twitter account for Batman until now? Really? That seems so strange.

@DCBatman is the name. Neat.

Toy Story 3 IRL Trailer

People are recreating Toy Story 3 in stop motion animation. This is insane, and so cool, and so well done.

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous Animated Series Coming to Netflix

In 2020, there will be an animated series set during the events of Jurassic World, revolving around six teenagers on a camp adventure on Isla Nublar, who get stranded and blah blah, you know how things go.

I like the idea behind it. Having it be an animated series is much easier than trying to make it a real live-action thing, and it's tapping into a different market. Hopefully, it'll be good.

Wonder Woman 1984 Poster

She looks like Wonder Woman, but wearing the bonus costume you unlocked after beating the game. I'm not digging it.

No Arkham Info at E3

Of course not. It's only been how many years of "sorry, no info this time"? It's very curious why they haven't announced absolutely anything about this proposed Justice League or Arkham or Superman game.

Sigourney Weaver Will Return for Ghostbusters III

Yesssss. Now, I still think it will be a shame if they don't find a way to say that Oscar is actually Peter's son. That will be disappointing. But this is a step in the right direction, and it still leaves that as a possibility until I'm proven wrong.

Lucifer Renewed for Season 5

AWESOME. It's a shame this will be the final season, but I'd rather the show end on a high note than to go on forever and just get cancelled out of nowhere. At least if they know this is the end, they'll actually end it with the conclusion they're looking for.

Details for X-Men vs. Fantastic 4 Film

There was an idea, back in the day, to do a Civil War film about the X-Men and Fantastic 4 against each other. Supposedly, Johnny Storm would have gone supernova and damaged Manhattan, which would have created the Superhero Registration Act. Eventually, Reed Richards would have severed Wolverine's arm by turning his fingers into molecule-wide scissors to cut it off (how that would have worked, I have no idea, cause it's still adamantium and you can't just say "Wolverine has no arm now", nor do you have him grow it back with the adamantium...).

Yeesh. This would have been rough. It's an interesting enough concept for a What If story, but not a film.
