The Scariest Thing About Minority Report You Probably Didn’t Notice

minorityreportGabbing Geek staff was shocked to discover that Minority Report was being made into a TV show despite some of our writers claiming to have covered it for a while.   And while we are all trying to find time to cram this show into our busy schedules, it was only upon reflection over the pilot that I realized a terrifying thing about the world of Minority Report the TV show.  Find out what that is after the break.

Jimmy Attempts To Read All Of Secret Wars Part Six

fantastic-four-319
Editor’s Note: Jimmy, not that Secret Wars 3!!!

Secret Wars continues to build momentum and the tie-ins that I’ve read have mostly been interesting so far.  Most of them feature titles you will likely be familiar with from Marvel crossover events of the past.  It’s interesting to see how Marvel is handling these tie-ins as some seem to be direct sequels (eg. X-Tinction Agenda, Civil War (I’m assuming)) while others just seem to build off the name and aspects of those original events but are really not related (eg. Planet Hulk, Armor Wars).

After the break we’ll look at the latest and best issue of the main mini-series so far, issue three.  Two tie-in series that seem to be in the “related in name only” department in Armor Wars #1 and Infinity Gauntlet #1.  And then take a trip to a slightly skewed version of the future than we’ve seen previously in Secret Wars 2099 #1.  As usual, spoilers will be prevalent.

Also, if you are like me and haven’t read all of Johnathon Hickman’s Avengers run leading up to Secret Wars, be sure to take Tom’s Road To Secret Wars course at gabbinggeekuniversity.com.  The reading materials are online here: Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four, Part Five, Part Six and Part Seven.

And that course is a prerequisite to the other parts of this series: Part One, Part Two, Part Three,Part Four, Part Five

Fox Orders Minority Report TV Pilot

Fox just ordered the hot script floating around Hollywood in advance of pilot season. 

The show is conceived as a true sequel to the film as one of the freed precogs tries to acclimate into society and befriends a detective. 

More interested in this as a sequel or would it be better as a reboot?
