Week in Geek #122: Jamie Foxx Returning as Electro and More

Posted by Anthony Mango Saturday, October 3, 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:

Lion King 2

The director of Moonlight is going to do a follow-up to The Lion King "live action" film with a prequel about Mufasa. Depending on what the story is, I might check it out. It could be great to see his rise to the throne or it could be a bland cash grab of sorts. I didn't think the remake had any of the magic of the original cartoon, which is one of my 3 favorite animated films of all time. Maybe this will be better, though.

Jamie Foxx Returning as Electro in Spider-Man 3???

Rumor has it, we're going to get a return of the Electro from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but as part of the next MCU Spider-Man film. Are we flat out getting Doctor Strange's film opening up literally all sorts of options to the point where a Spider-Verse thing is legit happening?

I'm so skeptical of this. I don't even necessarily believe it, but even if I do, I don't want his Electro back. Foxx is great. Electro can be a fun character. I think there are a handful of elements of TASM2 that aren't awful (and I actually enjoyed quite a bit of it on my first viewing back in the day, which doesn't hold up as much anymore), but how about we get a different, more comic book looking Electro, instead?

Then again, this could be awesome. It could mean we get Tobey and Andrew and Tom all on screen and such.

No Time to Die Delayed Again, So Regal Closes Down

The next James Bond film, No Time to Die, has now been pushed back to April 2021. As a response, the movie theater chain Regal Cinemas is apparently done. No indication of what that means for the grand scheme of things, how long they plan on having their doors shut, etc. However, it's certainly not a good thing if the parent company felt it was necessary. That's 2020 for you.

WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THESE TOPICS?
