Why is Dr. Doom fighting the Muppets? Clearly, you have to hear the episode to find out. It would definitely be one of the weirdest crossovers of all time (or maybe there's something weirder).
After hearing about some Jim Henson movie sequels, we take time to discuss whether or not other 1980's sequels and reboots can work - including a new Ghostbusters movie and Bill & Ted 3.
We also get a report from Fangirl's trip to Geek Girl Con and we take a look at some of the news and events from New York Comic Con.
Other geeky topics in this episode include Michael Keaton's fondess for his Batman movies, Joel Schumacher's shock about the fan reaction to Bat nipples, a newly announced Batman movie and a very interesting comic book battle.
Many of us are getting ready for the premiere of Star Wars Rebels, but Fangirl has already seen the movie and an episode of the series. She gives her spoiler-free review during today's meeting.

Speaking of reactions, there was an uncomfortable one at a recent panel at Wondercon after DC Comics reps were asked about Bill Finger's contribution to the creation of Batman. We examineAthena Finger's response to what was said.
Now that official cast announcements have been made for Star Wars Episode VII, the attention looks to now be on the title of the film. The Ancient Fear is rumored to be a working title and everyone seems to have an opinion. We not only discuss that, but we'll also ponder how important a movie title really is and look back on some really bad (and smelly) ones. We also get a review of GODZILLA!
Other topic's discussed in this episode include an odd reaction to an offer to be in Avengers 2, the possibility of The Muppets coming back to television, the confirmation of three more Star Wars movies and the creation of X-Men Twinkies. It's another assembly meeting filled with geeky goodness!

Today's episode sets the tone with a classic Star Wars spot promoting collector's cups. From those archives, we turn our attention to classic comics. Specifically, we take a look at the 1992 graphic novel about the death of Superman and discuss whether or not it should be turned into a movie. Would it be better than Batman vs. Superman? Would it be the big box office splash that DC and Warner Brothers would like to see? We attempt to answer those questions.
Some of the most anticipated movies of 2014 are finally hitting theaters and more will be here soon. So, we stop to gauge the level of enthusiasm on some of the geek films that are up next.
Merchman, a big Muppet fan, has already seen Muppets Most Wanted. So, Ryan Dosier of the Muppet Mindset Blog joins the Assembly to discuss it and the future of the Muppets in TV and film.
In the news, we discuss digging up E.T. video games out of a landfill, more movies coming to IMAX, Game of Thrones continuing its story in theaters and the chances of a Pacific Rim sequel.
