Not an April Fools Joke, this is seriously a brand new episode of Gabbing Geek!  And not only is it audio but video as well!  Jump after the break to see the full video of the session or you can download the audio from your favorite podcast source.

In this episode we talk about the things we’ve been geeking out on for the past few months and then play a cruel, cruel game of Spoiler Trivia.  Ryan has to answer trivia questions and for every one he misses the questioner gets to reveal a spoiler about Batman v. Superman (because Ryan is so lame he still hasn’t seen it).  Find out what happens after the break!

Netflix Attempts To Keep Marvel Zombies Happy

punisher_jessica_jones

If you’re a fan of Marvel’s Netflix shows so far, it was a good weekend of news for you.  First came word that Netflix and Marvel were in talks to put a Punisher show into development based on strong word of mouth for his appearance in Daredevil season two…which hasn’t even aired yet.  The Punisher seems a natural fit for the grim and gritty urban crime fighting world that Netflix has established.  We’ll know when Daredevil season two begins on March 18th if they have successfully pulled off the Frank Castle character.  Previous big screen incarnations have ranged between acceptable to downright abysmal.

Next up, though it hasn’t gotten a lot of exposure in these parts because of reasons, Jessica Jones was excellent.  So it is not overly surprising that Netflix and Marvel have announced that Jessica Jones season two is now in the works.  There isn’t much more information than that at this point.  There has been some speculation that we could see it as early as the end of the year, pointing out the 11 month gap between DD seasons 1 and 2.  Jessica Jones season 1 dropped in November of last year.  So while it is possible, I’d expect it more than likely in early 2017.

In any case, with DD season two just two months away, Luke Cage due at some point this year and now JJ season two, Iron Fist and possibly The Punisher in the pipeline, this Marvel/Netflix relationship has really prospered.

And a little teaser for Jessica Jones Season 2 after the break…

Expect Everyone Outside Of The X-Men and Fantastic Four In Avengers: Infinity War

infinity_gauntlet_everybody

Co-directors and gluttons for punishment The Russo Brothers have revealed they currently have 67 characters lined up to appear in the two part Avengers: Infinity War.  My immediate reaction was “Holy $#@*!”  That has got to include EVERYONE.  The MCU regulars of the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy, new blood like Ant-Man, Spider-Man, Dr. Strange and Blank Panther.  Even the TV crowd most be represented.  Anyone from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Daredevil, Luke Cage and/or Jessica Jones.  The Captain Marvel movie is scheduled in between Infinity War Parts One and Two so you’d think she’d be involved somehow.  And there are sure to be characters making their debut here as well.  Sounds like a whole lot of awesome.

Joe Russo teases:

“People will not be disappointed in the amount of characters in the movie. The concept of ‘Infinity War’ is that the Marvel universe unites to battle the greatest threat to the world and universe that you’ve ever seen, and we’re going to honor that concept.”

All that said, maybe we need to keep expectations a little in check.  I’m sure we will see a lot of the crowd mentioned above.  And the TV shows do make occasional reference to the movies so they clearly take place in the same universe unlike whatever mess DC has going on.  But keep in mind the phrasing here…67 characters.  There could be villains other than Thanos that appear.  Aunt May is a character.  Night Nurse.  Agent Carter.  Pepper Potts.  The cop picking up Twinkies for his wife before heading over to Nakatomi Plaza.  That S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent with the red shirt on that Thanos kills on an away mission.  You get the point.

And it won’t be any day soon we’ll get much clarification here as Avengers: Infinity War Part One is not scheduled until May 4th, 2018.

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.

Geek Review: Jessica Jones

jessica_jones_logob

Disney owns a lot of stuff right now.  It freaked me out a wee little bit last year when I stopped at a Disney Store last Christmas and was reminded they now have Star Wars, Marvel Comics, and the Muppets.

Point is, we here at Gabbing Geek have inadvertently ignored one of those properties because another one just put out a new movie.

Anyway, here’s some thoughts on the new Netflix series Jessica Jones.  SPOILERS after the cut.

The Other Marvel Villain On Jessica Jones

jessica_jones_logob

If you are like me, and I know I am, you’ve been enjoying the Netflix series Jessica Jones. Using subject matter that makes Daredevil look like a Care Bear Holiday Special, the series has done its own take on the story between former third rate superhero turned first rate private investigator Jessica Jones and all-around sociopath Killgrave.

In the comics, of course, Killgrave goes by the name the Purple Man because he is, well, purple.  But there’s another Marvel villain lurking on the show.  I haven’t finished the series yet, so I don’t know how bad the guy will get but…see who it is with some SPOILERS after the cut.

New Clip To Get You Excited For Jessica Jones Premiere This Weekend

Spoiler alert: this is not a good hand.

You know what would be really convenient playing Texas Hold’em?  The ability to control people’s minds and to get them to do whatever you want.  It’s not every hand you flop 4 Jacks like I did at my weekly game last week.  Usually you have Ace King and a 4-5-9 flop shows up to ruin your day.

Anywho, after the break, the Purple Man has the ability I don’t and it doesn’t matter what the flop is.
