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 Chadwick Boseman

Goddamn 2020 sucks. On top of the relentless, constant stream of bad news from all sides of life in general, we've also now just lost a fantastic actor who was taken way too soon. There's no telling what repercussions of this will follow with the MCU, too, as Black Panther was probably going to be one of the mainstay major characters to act as a driving force going forward in the wake of some of the original Avengers no longer appearing in the films.

Boseman was suffering from colon cancer for the past four years. Terrible news. That's the theme of this year. This is yet another crushing, crushing blow that just changes the game entirely and it's so sad to think about just how much more he had to offer that we'll be missing out on.

Equal Billing for The Wasp in Ant-Man 3

The first film, Ant-Man, made sense. Calling the sequel Ant-Man and The Wasp also made sense. Now, Peyton Reed has confirmed that will be the same #3 in that The Wasp will get the same credit, essentially, as a partner and not just a sidekick.

I'm all for it. I just hope the title isn't Ant-Man and The Wasp and Stature or something like that. That's kind of mouthy. Ant-Man and The Wasp 2 would be confusing, since its the third film. Ant-Man and The Wasp 3 would imply there's an Ant-Man and The Wasp 1 and 2, which there isn't.

Tough call. Maybe they can't avoid it being "Ant-Man and The Wasp: Subtitle" or whatever.

Of course, that implies movies are ever going to exist again with the way the world being how it is....

Bob McLeod is not Bob Macleod

Co-creator of New Mutants, Bob McLeod, has apparently had his name misspelled in the film's credits as Bob Macleod.

Ouch. It seems the movie is awful (NOW THERE'S A SHOCKER) and they couldn't even bother to do that right?
