Week in Geek #70: MCU Infinity Saga Box Set, Clerks 3, Awful Birds of Prey 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:

Clerks III Back on Schedule

Yesssssssss!!!!!!!!! Round out the View Askewniverse with the one that started it all (assuming Mallrats 2 isn't happening) by bringing in Randal and Dante and so on the way it should go down. So awesome to hear that this is back in the works.

Birds of Prey Official Trailer #1

Goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooddddd this looks like shit. I don't like anything about this. Even Harley Quinn seems like they've taken her in the wrong direction and she shouldn't be the focal point and her look is so off and ugh. Screw this "quirky for the sake of quirky, girl power will give us the inability to be criticized even though we have Black Mask without a goddamn black mask" film.

Just look at this image. Tell me if this superhero movie looks like it fits more in the early 2000s X-Men era where studio executives felt like they couldn't actually embrace who these characters are and had to "ground" them into "reality" by making them "dark" and "gritty" or if Warner Bros have learned ANYTHING from the massive success of a series like the MCU, which isn't perfect, but knocks it out of the park 90% of the time. Meanwhile, 90% of the time when a DC film is announced, we have to assume it isn't even happening at all, or if it does, it'll be crap like this.


Disney Will No Longer Run Commercials for Netflix

A lot of buzz is going around about Disney refusing to show ads for Netflix material on properties like ABC, Freeform and so on. To me, this just makes sense from a business perspective. They're the competition when it comes to Disney+ and the streaming platforms. Why would they want to advertise shows that people will want to subscribe to the alternative service to see? That's like USA running commercials for AEW on TNT during the WWE NXT program. Oh wait, they did that? Yeah, they were stupid enough to do that and that might have hurt their ratings. Duh!

The Infinity Saga Box Set is $550

You've got to be kidding me. There's no way in hell that's worth that much. It has 23 movies, sure, and some bonus extra stuff that nobody really needs, but good lord, $600 after taxes? Nope. Nope. Nope. Noooooooooooooope. But I do still want it, even though I'm not going to buy it.

No Time to Die Poster

A generic poster for the next James Bond film, No Time to Die, was released. It's just Daniel Craig in a suit looking off to the side. There's really nothing to it. I hate posters like this that are just an actor. We know he's in it. Sell me on the movie by giving me something other than "Yup, it's a Bond film."

General Swanwick Was Supposed to be Martian Manhunter

Zack Snyder confirmed that in Man of Steel, the character of General Swanwick was supposed to be revealed at some point in Justice League to be Martian Manhunter. I knew it.
