Week in Geek #102: Purge TV Series Cancelled, New Mutants Release Date 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:

RIP Jerry Stiller

At age 92, the comedian and actor best known for his roles on Seinfeld and King of Queen has passed away. Awesome characters that were so, so funny (particularly Frank Costanza). RIP.

RIP Fred Willard

Stiller wasn't the only comedian to pass this week as Fred Willard, 86, also died. He was so good at playing a mild-mannered, polite type role in so many things. RIP.

The New Mutants Release Date

In what has to be the 20th change to this movie's release date, it's now set for August 28, 2020. I repeat, as I've repeated a million times now, WHY IS THIS BEING PUT IN THEATERS?! It's just going to be confusing for people, it can't possibly be that good, even if it is, it's not going to work to mix it with the MCU, and you're now in a perfect environment with this pandemic to release it on Hulu or something and boost your subscription rates!!

Uma Thurman and Jeremy Renner = Mad Max: Fury Road

Thurman for Furiosa and Renner for Max were possibilities in the casting process. For what it's worth, they might have done a good job, but I think Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron were the better options.

The Purge TV Series Cancelled

I literally just watched season 2 this week, and I was a big fan of how it changed up the formula and touched on the time then The Purge isn't happening. I'm disappointed to see it was cancelled. Then again, it's taken me months to even start season 2, so I get it. Plus, this seems like it would be better off on Netflix or HBO Max or something rather than USA, so they can do more brutal things. Maybe it'll get picked up on one of those networks.
