From Captain Marvel reactions to robots, turtles and trailers, we have all your geeky pop culture news this week!
Captain Marvel – Josh and Kitty have watched the film and we have their reactions in a non spoiler review. Find out what they think of this movie.
Love Death and Robots – it’s everything we enjoy. It’s the new animated NSFW series of shorts from Netflix. It’s an amazing show, but don’t watch it with kids.
Cigars, pipes and tobacco – this week’s podcast promo leads us down a short rabbit hole discussing smoking which is unusual for us.
Transformers – they are more than meets the eye and there are more sequels in the works from Hasbro and Paramount.
Alien – the Alien film franchise is having its 40th anniversary this year. As such, they are releasing 6 short films to celebrate. We have the details right here this week.
Batman – fans are demanding a Michael Keaton film in the Tim Burton movie universe, but directed by Ben Affleck. Will this be a Batman Beyond type film? Will it even happen?
Guardians of the Galaxy – Disney has re-hired James Gunn to write and direct the third film in the franchise. But he’s also working on Suicide Squad 2. What’s going to happen? Idris Elba is replacing Will Smith as Deadshot.
Avengers End Game – the third and final trailer is here, and it’s really good. The film is coming soon and we are so excited. The trailer doesn’t tell us much but it’s amazing nonetheless.
Aladdin – the first trailer is here, and it’s racially appropriate. We approve. We don’t care for musicals but it looks decent
Prospect – an excellent trailer made in the style of 1990’s era VHS tapes. A cool indie sci-fi film about survival.
Batman vs Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – Batman and the Turtles are teaming up in an all-new animated film coming this spring. Nothing more needs to be said. We are excited!
Star Trek Discovery season 2, episode 9 – fun, sad, illuminating episode. We laughed, we cried, we learned a lot about Ariam and Section 31. If you’re not watching, you’re missing out on great Trek.
Comics news – Kitty tells us all about Batman Who Laughs: The Grim Knight one shot comic and Auric’s 5th issue is released at Toronto Comic Con this weekend.
