Week in Geek #105: Evan Peters in Wandavision, Bane Film and More

Posted by Anthony Mango Monday, June 8, 2020
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:

Evan Peters in Wandavision

Who is he playing? A new character, or is he playing Quicksilver? That would be pretty sweet as a sort of combination of the X-Men franchise and the Quicksilver we got from Age of Ultron. I liked the look and characterization of the Age of Ultron version more, but that sort of reference is too good to pass up.

Ryan Wilder is the Next Batwoman

With Ruby Rose leaving the Batwoman TV series, they're not going to recast the role. Instead, they're making a new Batwoman with a new character named Ryan Wilder.

Proposed Bane Film

After Joker was such a hit, one of the supposed ideas they were workshopping was a similar film revolving around Bane.

To be honest, that could work really well. Bane's a character that has enough sides to him that I could see him working as a protagonist despite still being ultimately on the bad side of the alignment.

A Black Sue Storm?

For Josh Trank's atrocious Fant4stic film, if you remember, Franklin Storm and Johnny Storm were portrayed by black actors, while Sue Storm was played by Kate Mara and was written as adopted to explain why she was white.

When the film came out, I wasn't a fan of the decision. Here I thought "Why don't they just make Sue black, too?"

Apparently, the reason (according to Trank) was because the studio wanted a bigger name to play Sue and didn't have any black actresses in mind they felt could pull that off for marketing purposes. That's a shame, for many reasons.

However...let's be honest. Even if Kate Mara wouldn't have been in the film and Meagan Good or Jurnee Smollett-Bell or whoever would have played the character, that wouldn't have saved the film from its 900 other problems. It still would have been an atrocious movie, just with one less issue.
