For the second year in a row the fine folks at Tampa Bay Comic Con gave us a panel slot, and we decided to record it in it’s entirety for you! If you happened to miss these fine gentlemen wax poetic about nerd stuff LIVE this time around, here’s everything we covered:
- Game Of Thrones, our take on the 7th season so far [spoilers; skip to 4:25]
- Stranger Things, season 2 trailer released
- Thor: Ragnarok, early reactions
- Justice League, relying too heavily on success of Wonder Woman?
- Ready Player One, how did this even get funded?
- Spider-Man: Homecoming, our mini-review
- Overwatch, Doomfist is badass
- Destiny 2, Lee talks the beta
- Anthem, Destiny: Me too?
- Kingdom Hearts 3, and we made someone rage quit the panel
A huge thank you to everyone at TBCC and those who attended and made our panel possible. Fingers crossed for next year!
Greetings Earthlings, and welcome to another intergalactic episode that’s chock full of our insatiable love for X-Men Origins: Wolverine!
Sit back, relax, and listen to us gush over the incredible Wolverine/Hugh Jackman love letter, LOGAN. There are a handful of major spoilers, so be warned. Seventeen years in the making, this is the movie our favorite Canadian X-Man deserves. It’s so good to have two solid R-rated superhero flicks out now, because VENOM looks like its going to be the next one in line to get the “adult” treatment. In TV news, Keenan and Lee explain to Seamus how IRON FIST was less than stellar and discuss the potential future of the character in the Netflix Marvelverse. To round out the show, we finish up with some talk about how THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: BREATH OF THE WILD and MASS EFFECT: ANDROMEDA are great additions to the franchises.
Seriously, what kind of bizarro world is it that an X-Men based movie is better than a Marvel Netflix show?
Is it just us, or are people yearning for the adventure and flair of the wild west? We dive into HBO’s Westworld and gush over the prospect of the new Red Dead Redemption 2. Keenan replays the craziest episode of Ash vs Evil Dead he’s ever watched, Seamus rekindles his love of Hearthstone, and Lee can’t wait for the inevitable Luke Cage / Iron Fist team-up, all in this new episode that’s bursting at the seams with geeky goodness!
“I GOTTA BELIEVE!”
Fan favorite video game series PaRappa the Rapper is being turned into a new anime series! Japan’s Fuji TV have announced a new series of anime shorts titled PJ Berri no Mogu-Mogu Munya-Munya, which will star PaRappa’s DJ bear friend, PJ Berri, Pa-Rappa and Chop Master Onion, among others, will all show up in the new shorts.
PJ Berri no Mogu-Mogu Munya-Munya will debut August 18 on Fuji TV’s Hi Poul variety series, with future episodes planned for late October.
A bit far off from now sadly, but I’m always excited to announce new Ghostbusters animated news!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony has announced that they will be releasing a new Ghostbusters animated series entitled “Ghostbusters: Ecto Force” which will be hitting the small screen in 2018. This series is said to be part of the cinematic universe the begins with this summer’s Ghostbusters reboot that is directed by Paul Feig and stars Melissa McCartney, Leslie Jones, Kristin Wiig and Kate McKinnon.
The series will take place in the year 2050 and will follow a new cast of ghost chasers who capture ghosts and spirits from around the world with help from local teams and some very cool gear.
It sounds like it will be aimed at a younger audience, which isn’t surprising since the original films animated series was also aimed at the same crowd (I.E.; my generation).
As fun sounding as this is, imagine if Sony released a more mature Animatrix type series or one off film. It could be made by different animators showcasing the true horrors that some of the Ghostbusters face and what kind of toll it takes being on the team.
Hey, a fanboy can dream can’t he?
