Week in Geek #72: Batman Casts Riddler and Catwoman, All Hail Kevin Feige 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:

Zoe Kravitz Cast as Catwoman

They wanted her. They got her. She wouldn't have been my first choice out of everyone in Hollywood, but hey, she might be able to pull it off.

Naomie Harris Cast as Shriek for Venom 2

Supposedly, Shriek is going to be another villain in Venom 2, played by Naomie Harris. That makes sense. She was part of the Maximum Carnage deal and they could use her as someone that he tracks down at the start of the film while Carnage break out or something like that. Harris will play the part well, too. Thumbs up.

Kevin Feige is Chief Creative Officer of ALL of Marvel

WOW. Credit where it's due, as this guy knows what he's doing. Good on Marvel for letting him take control over every little aspect. I hope this doesn't overwhelm him and take him out of commission for paying attention to the littler details by being bogged down on smaller projects that build up, but I trust he'll do a great job.

Inhumans Being Recast?

Vin Diesel as Black Bolt and Aaron Taylor-Johnson returning, but not as Quicksilver, as Maximus. Hm. Very interesting. Ignoring the television show is the right move, for sure. But I don't know if Johnson for Maximus would be the best thing, as people can still associate him with Quicksilver. Plus, why wouldn't WandaVision include a reference to him?

No More Jonah Hill for Batman / Seth Rogen for Penguin? / Paul Dano Cast as Riddler

Apparently, Hill is no longer in negotiation to play Penguin or Riddler, but Seth Rogen might be looked at for Penguin. I still think this is a bad idea. Having people who are on the more comedic side makes me think they aren't taking that character seriously enough. I also just don't picture Rogen as Penguin.

But now, they've reported that Paul Dano will be Riddler. THIS is good. I think he'll do a great job.
