Welcome to Episode 150 of Broadcast Geeks! On this podcast we discuss all things geek and nerd related, provided our DVR’s have space and our Netflix accounts are our own and none others. This week, the Geeks (Jeff, Jake, Nate and Matt Orrin) are back in the Quantum Realm, under Mutiny Information Cafe, to discuss all things geek.
DC is putting out a Batman vs the Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles and that got us all excited! Jake talks about how aligned it appears to be with the comic book, and we discuss any possible changes. This leads to us speculating about time changes across the dimensions, because Shredder gets to Gotham more than a year before the turtles. Batman isn't happy when he first encounters them but when he realizes the true threat, they work together. Do you think Batman likes one of the Turtles more than any other? Which one do you think it is?
With the Disney acquisition of Fox properties now at a close, we talk about the implications of the next phase in the MCU. Thoughts are that the Illuminati will be a focus, which is a great way to incorporate Prof. X and even Namor. However, will the Xmen being a completely new set of people? Will they start them young, like first class? Will they have a new Wolverine, and who will it be? Speaking of MCU, James Gunn is back at the GotG helm, but he is gonna be busy because he is also going to direct the Suicide Squad for DC! Which movie do you think will be made first?
After a little discussion of James Van Der Beek, who we all kind of like, we talk about TV programming. Lex Luthor is now on Supergirl though we're concerned that they are watering down Supergirl's importance by using Superman and his villains on HER show. They should emphasize a whole new crop of villains for her. We discuss Netflix programming, which will take a hit when the Disney+ streaming services comes out later this year. We also talk about Kevin Smith making a bit of a resurgence with his meta Jay and Silent Bob reboot. Somehow, we get into butt stuff but if you think about it, don't we all?
