2016. Did any of us think we’d live this long? Yeah, probably. We’re Geeks, not morbid.
So, what sort of Geek Entertainment has us here at Gabbing Geek at least a little curious? See behind the cut, with some items getting some expert Geek Commentary from the Geek Guru himself, Jimmy Impossible.
Bryan Singer is the latest director attached to adapt the classic Robert A. Heinlein science fiction novel The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress for the big screen. Which means that soon Bryan Singer will be the latest director to announce that his project to adapt The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress for the big screen has been cancelled. It’s just a matter of time. Find out why after the break.
Jenny has complained several times on the Gabbing Geek podcast about how Batman v Superman is turning into Batsoup with all the characters being cast. Maybe X-Men: Apocalypse is the next soup du jour, because after ALL the casting news of late on the next franchise installment featuring the mutie scum, we now have a new Nightcrawler.
In an interview with Larry King, Patrick Stewart (“Star Trek: The Next Generation”) delivered some sad news. When asked if he was going to be in the next X-Men film, Stewart replied, “No. Nor Sir Ian McKellen, either.” Wow, not only is Stewart’s Professor Charles Xavier not going to be in it, but McKellen’s master of magnetism Erik Lehnsherr, aka Magneto, won’t appear either. That’s a bummer, man.
Probably the right move, but I like these two so much that it still makes me a little sad.
