Episode 132 - The Hammer of Justice is Unisex

September 21, 2018

Welcome to Episode 132 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 (Mitch, Jeff, Jake and Matt Orrin) recorded at the Sexpot Comedy Studios, located above the awesome Mutiny Information Cafe, for another packed episode of geeky goodness.  

Batman was a HUGE part of our conversation this week, specifically his lower region.  A new iteration of Batman, geared towards a slightly more mature audience, features the Bat-dong and Jake tells us how big it is.  He makes it seem as if it was as big as Dr. Manhattan's in the Watchmen movie, but hopefully it's not blue.  Imagine the cod piece he'd have to wear.  Fortunately, he has Wayne Tech to create all of the goodies he needs to fight crime.  Especially when its criminals that use THAT technology to commit the crime!  Then again, he couldn't be his best with his trusty manservant, Alfred.  Matt Orrin thinks Batman could never marry another person because he already has a life partner in Alfred.  What are your thoughts?

We then talked some Superman, because of the rumors that Henry Cavill is moving on from DCEU.  Nothing has been confirmed, except that negotiations regarding a cameo in the upcoming Shazam movie aren't working.  There have also been talks about Michael B. Jordan possibly being cast as the Man of Steel.  We think Jon Hamm would make a good Superman, but it would depend on what timeline we are looking at and the context.
Michael b Jordan casting rumors.  The DCUniverse streaming app is in FULL effect and we are loving it!  So much old content that is now available, like the Justice League and JL Unlimited animated shows.  

The Captain Marvel teaser/trailer was just released and it got us very excited.  We saw some Skrulls, a young two-eyed Nick Fury, and Agent Coulson!!  We still don't know a lot about what will happen in this movie, or who Jude Law will portray.  Some think he could be Mar-vell, but we'll have to wait till March 2019.  We also need to know how this movie will tie in to the upcoming Infinity War movie.  We heard Taika Waititi was on set for reshoots...Korg?!  As usual, Marvel talks lead us to Netflix and their related shows.  We discussed Iron Fist, season 2, and Jake felt it left a bad taste similarly to the show, the OA.  What will happen to the future of these shows, and which new shows will be introduced?  When will we ever see these characters in the larger MCU?  Will Netflix ever give up these properties?  We do know the Loki and Scarlett Witch are supposed to get their own show, but on an upcoming Disney streaming service.  Is everyone getting a streaming service?  Stay tuned for more info on the soon to be released Streaming Geeks service.

This weeks featured celebrity was Diedrich Bader, as we discussed his best roles.  He was a great Batman, he was awesome in Office Space, and great as Oswald Lee Harvey on the Drew Carey show. What's your favorite role of his?  We then talked about old TV shows, as they are becoming much accessible on the many streaming services available to us, like Hulu or CBS.  We love to watch old superhero shows such as the Flash, whose costume then might be better than the current one.  Its always great when actors from these old shows appear in the new shows.  DC, and especially CW, has been really good about including old actors, such as John Wesley Shipp, Helen Slater, Dean Cain, Mark Hamill and many others.  Do you have a favorite?
