Week in Geek #120: We Have a She-Hulk, DC Universe Infinite and More

Posted by Anthony Mango Saturday, September 19, 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:

Jonathan Majors Possibly Cast as Kang the Conqueror in Ant-Man 3

I know nothing about Majors, but there are three major things to talk about with this news, according to Deadline:

1) This means Reed Richards and/or Sue Storm will be black. Of course, people are going nuts about that. OR, he's going to be blue-skinned. In my opinion, both Reed and Sue aren't characters that need to be white, so hey, as long as they get the right actors, whatever. My issue is that I don't think Sue and Johnny should be Michael B. Jordan and Kate Mara and adopted and whatnot.

2) Kang is far too big of a threat for Ant-Man to fight. He has to be just observing things or manipulating stuff in the background. We did hear about MODOK as a possibility and that makes more sense to me. I still think Black Ant would be the best option, but hey. At the very least, Kang could be setting up something with the Young Avengers and Cassie.

3) If they go with Kang as the benefactor, that would be surprising. I thought it would be Norman Osborn or someone else more street-level.

Animaniacs Returning November 20th on Hulu

I loved this show back in the day! Awesome! I'll definitely try to check it out.

The Mandalorian Season 2 Trailer

Everything looks cool as hell, as expected. Plus, is Sasha Banks a Jedi?? Very curious to see how she works into this. As you're likely aware, the sister site for Fanboys Anonymous is Smark Out Moment, so this is a rare scenario where we can have some crossover material between the two!

Tatiana Maslany Cast as She-Hulk

We finally know who will play Jennifer Walters in the She-Hulk TV series coming to Disney+ and it's Tatiana Maslany—someone I'm familiar with, but not familiar with. IE, I've heard her name and I've heard good things, and I've seen one episode of Orphan Black, but that's it.

Some people are thinking she doesn't have the musculature, but I think that's pretty ridiculous. We have CGI. Do you think Mark Ruffalo looks like Hulk? Of course not.

I get a good feeling about this. The rumors of Alison Brie were striking me odd, as she's wonderful, but not someone I figured would make for a good She-Hulk. Maslany has more of an edge to her and I can buy her being a lawyer that turns into She-Hulk much more. Thumbs up, so far at least!

DC Universe Infinite

The inevitable has happened and DC television projects and films will be on HBO Max going forward while DC Universe is going to be a comics-only platform, now rebranded DC Universe Infinite.

Ultimately, this is how it was guaranteed to go. There was no way they would keep the TV and movie content on a strictly DC service forever and not want to make those things applicable to HBO Max. Once that happened, there's less of a need for people to want to have DC Universe to go along with it. If you can consolidate your subscriptions, you're going to. That's why I think it's potentially even a better idea if they offer a package deal of getting both for a slight discount, as people will be more willing to spend $15 for 2 services than $10 for one and not doing the other, or $20 for both.

Harley Quinn Renewed for Season 3

Woooooooo! This show is so good and I wasn't ready to say goodbye to it.

If you haven't watched it already, do yourself a favor and check it out. It's so funny.
