The introduction of Windblade has stirred up some debate in the geek community about Transformer (or robot) gender. Does the creation of characters like Windblade and Arcee mean there are male and female bots? Or is it just another way they're adopting to human life? We discuss Windblade, robot gender and emotions in today's assembly.
Also, why don't we have hoverboards yet? What about flying cars (like Admiral 80s has)? Why hasn't Jaws made 19 movies? We discuss Back to the Future II's version of 2015 and compare it with today's reality.
We'll decide whether or not Carrie Fisher's "confirmation" about Episode VII holds water or if it's just more trash compactor garbage. Other topics includeGal Gadot's Wonder Woman contract, the Harry Potter park expansion, a Frozen sing-along and the Batman movie we'll get to see this year.
And Merchman announces a very popular geek TV series that he plans to watch for the first time!
How would Queen Amidala fix Star Wars? Well, you'll find out if you listen (and that question will make a lot more sense). We're talking about how we'd fix (or improve) some of our favorite geek movies in the assembly today. Also, Bobby Blakey (aka the Mighty Movie Master) attempts to provide some clarity and opinion to the latest Ant-Man casting news .
Along the way we discuss some of the latest geek news including the new release date for Batman vs. Superman (and the great pic to the right that goes with it), some Star Wars prequel storylines that Lucas came up with back in 1977, some details that make the Gotham TV series sound better, writers for a possible Agent Carter series and news about a cool 1960s series that's finally coming to DVD and Blu-ray.
All this, plus Merchman gives his review of the movie, Her. Join us for the latest episode. The Queen wishes it.
Today we look ahead to what's in store for two of the biggest franchises in existence - Star Wars and Indiana Jones. Ed Dolista of the IndyCast joins the assembly to discuss the past and present adventures of Dr. Jones. We also discuss which of the four Indy movies is the best one made so far. Should there be another movie? Should Harrison Ford continue to star in them or is it time for something different? We discuss it all!
Sarah Woloski (Jedi Tink) of the Skywalking Through Neverland podcast fills in for Fangirl in this episode. She and Dan Zehr of the Coffee With Kenobi podcast share their thoughts on the new Lucasfilm Story Group. We'll also discuss the latest news on Star Wars Rebels characters and the Disney Star Wars Land expansion. We even throw in a little bit of Marvel talk as we take a closer look at how they'll bring Rocket Raccoon to the big screen.
Join us for a blockbuster franchise-sized episode!
