Gabbing Geek episode 55 is not what you’d expect–if you were expecting the promised Geek Book Club about Fangirl. That has been unexpectedly delayed to episode 56 and you’ll find out exactly why. We also talk about Lego Dimensions, Gotham, the Martian (movie version!), and play an alien trivia game. Give the episode a listen right now or jump after the break to find out more!
It was only a matter of time before more details emerged about the Marvel Studios reorganization that led Kevin Feige to directly report to Disney Studios rather than Marvel COO Ike Perlmutter. The Hollywood Reporter revealed that it may have been the budget for
Avengers 2.5 Captain America: Civil War that was the final straw. Follow the link for more interesting details, but the biggest takeaway that surprised me is that Marvel TV shows (including Agents of SHIELD and the Netflix series) will remain on the Perlmutter side of the fence rather than the Feige. The Netflix series have been too new to overlap much, but SHIELD has had some interesting movie tie-ins. Will those continue or will the two mediums begin to separate? Perhaps we’ll find out when Agents of SHIELD starts back up and Jessica Jones releases on Netflix in the next few months.
Marvel mastermind Kevin Feige has been open about his love of Star Wars and revealed years ago his secret Easter Egg nod to Empire Strikes Back in Phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Just like Luke Skywalker famously lost hold of his father’s lightsaber when his dad cut off his hand, every movie in the second phase of the MCU has had someone losing their hand or arm. Now that Phase 2 is complete with the release of Ant-Man, we can prevent the final list of every Empire-based Marvel severed appendage! The list even includes all the Marvel TV properties as well!
Jump after the break to see them all, but since the last one is from the recently released Ant-Man then BE WARNED THE REST OF THIS POST CONTAINS ANT-MAN SPOILERS!
WARNING: This post contains Avengers Age of Ultron spoilers. Go see the movie first, then come back and read the rest after the break.
You know that superhero TV show? That one you really like starring that white guy who was an orphan and now fights crime? But as a vigilante, of course. And he has a secret identity which should be obvious to everyone around him but then again nobody seems to mind that there’s a leather costume for this superhero for no good reason?
Yeah, that show. Or should I say one of a dozen shows? This infographic from Bea Yuen shows that a lot of those cool superhero TV shows we’re enjoying right now are…somewhat similar. Check out the full-sized graphic after the break.
Like any self-respecting Geek-Girl, I totally binged watched Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix this past weekend. Don’t judge! I’m not ashamed – I love comics, I love Marvel, and I love TV, so this was a win-win for me. But I was weary, yes dear readers, I was weary of how it would all pan out. So the question is, did Daredevil live up to the advertising hype? Spoiler alert: IT DID! And I’ll tell you why it’s changing the future for superhero stories on TV.
With successful shows like Arrow, The Flash, and Gotham on the rise, it’s no wonder that Fox is chomping at the bit to get into the game and cash in on the popularity that are Superheroes on TV. And without further adieu, we bring you a live action X-Men that’s about to join the gambit of shows already slated. Gambit. Heh-heh!
