Blab had a little technical issues towards the end but we managed to get out our latest blabcast as both an audio-only podcast (which you can listen to here or on any of your favorite downloadable sources) or as a video where you can see all of our fun facial expressions! In this episode we discuss the new Dr Strange trailer, FOUR new Avatar movies, and then provide some geek recommendations for TV (The Magicians), comic books (all things Star Wars), and books (The Rook, Discworld). Check it out now or head after the break for the full video.
In an era of over-hype, where there are teaser trailers for the release of teaser trailers, the Doctor Strange trailer kinda snuck up on us. After the break, get your first glimpse of Marvel’s next star in the making.
I’m totally off the grid these days, but Ryan’s predictions are so bad I had to come in and rip them to shreds and give you the REAL numbers. His bold predictions about how the 2015 domestic box office would turn out were pretty weak. He called his performance was mixed–but for him mixed was chocolate plus peanut butter. In reality, it is a mix of Ex-lax and motor oil. So I am going to go, one by one, through his 2016 picks and give the real number. We have a lunch bet on who has the lowest delta between the acutals and their predictions. NO PRICE IS RIGHT RULES IN EFFECT!
One year ago I made some bold predictions about how the 2015 domestic box office would turn out. My performance was mixed–got some, missed some others. But now it’s time to look ahead to 2016. Jump after the break to see what I predict will be the top ten grossing films of the year along with 33 other movies I’m making some bold predictions on!
Wonderful artist Mike Mitchell imagines numerous Marvel characters in GIF-like portrait paintings. I like how all of the characters are captured in profile perspective…except for one uncooperative character… Some really talented work here.
We learned a lot about Marvel’s post Secret Wars plans over the weekend. After the break we’ll recap what we know so far from the two released teaser images, Marvel’s Next Big Thing panel at SE:NYC’15 and some odds and ends from the FCBD offering Avengers #0.
Of note, some of this could be considered spoilers, but minor…
Look around you–does the world feel different? Sure does. We’re living in the post-Spidey MCU world and it’s going to be fantastic. And while the deal to bring Spidey back into the fold may not be as clean as a full retreat by Sony it still has a lot of good stuff: Spidey in MCU films, Feige contributing in some way to make the standalone Spidey movies by Sony suck less, and the possibility of other MCU characters coming into the Spideyverse.
How this all happens is still up in the air but given that Latino Review broke this story weeks ago with not just the details of the deal but also how it would happen, it’s likely that their other news about the “how” of it all is also legit. And it’s huge. If you’d like to know what this means for Spidey and the MCU then keep reading. But be warned–
HERE THERE BE SPOILERS
Seriously. We’ll be revealing info from several MCU films and even Age of Ultron. Spoiler-puritans should stop reading now. Everyone else, let’s continue.

Sure, we explained what was happening over three weeks ago but now the news is official from Marvel. Because Marvel doesn’t want you to sleep they just put out two very interesting press releases that has some huge implications for the MCU and geeks everywhere.
The Lost City of Z film adaptation takes a big hit this week, as it loses Benedict Cumberbatch as the lead! In case you’ve never heard of the property, I want to start by saying it is NOT a movie about an ancient city that is overrun by Zombies.
Is that a new episode of the Gabbing Geek podcast I hear? Why yes, yes it is!
