Week in Geek #121: WandaVision Trailer, Doctor Strange 2 Cameos and More

Posted by Anthony Mango Friday, September 25, 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:

WandaVision Trailer

How cool does this look? It's definitely a completely new approach to something in the MCU and has a horror vibe to it. This feels like a Twilight Zone episode. I'm down.

Tom Cruise, John Krasinski and Emily Blunt Cameos in Doctor Strange 2?

Rumor has it (take it with a grain of salt) that there will be a cameo for Tom Cruise in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness where he's playing the Tony Stark of another dimension. That would be awesome, and I really hope that happens. At one point in time, Cruise was in the mix to play Iron Man for a film before the MCU kicked off. Even if it's just for a brief moment, it would be cool to see what would happen with him inside the armor.

Update: A follow-up to that is that Emily Blunt may be Black Widow and John Krasinski could be Captain America to play off how both of them were up for those roles. I think that would be awesome. I still think Krasinski and Blunt in particular could be used for other characters in the future, but this shouldn't stop them and it could be pretty damn cool.

Peacemaker Spin-Off for HBO Max

John Cena's character in the upcoming The Suicide Squad (such a dumb title) film, Peacemaker, will be getting a spin-off series dedicated to the origins of his character. It will be on HBO Max.

Having not seen the film, I'm curious what this will end up being. Does his character have enough to justify a series dedicated to him? Probably not. Is this just another situation of WB saying they have plans to do something, only to have it all fall apart? Probably. Will I check it out? Yeah.

Nick Fury Series Coming to Disney+

No real information about this yet. No information needed for me to say I'm in. Sam Jackson as Nick Fury is awesome and I love that they'll flesh out the character.

Aldis Hodge Cast as Hawkman in Black Adam

I know nothing about Aldis Hodge as an actor, but he looks like he could play the part, as far as physical stature goes. And you know what? For anyone crying about how this is a black Hawkman, what's the matter? The character has nothing intrinsically tied to his race and if anything, with the whole Egyptian side of things, doesn't this make more sense than if he were some Irish guy or something?
