2017 Fandom Predictions – Ep 97

The Best is Yet To Come!

Welcome to the Future! The year is 2017 and we still are filled with optimism.  Get ready for our hopeful predictions for 2017, so far this year hasn’t disappointed us (we’re looking at you 2016.) Jeff and Branden talk about Marvel Movies, DC Movies, The DCW-Verse, Comics, Doctor Who, and our favorite books.  Strap in while we gaze into our crystal ball to make some pretty optimistic predictions.

Random Fandom: Peter Cushing

In the Rogue One review episode Jeff and I stumbled over Peter Cushing’s name at one point which prompted Patrick Clark to write it to make sure that we knew just how important Cushing was.  If you haven’t seen the classic HAMMER films, then you are missing out on some foundational horror material.

Geek News

Carrie Fisher was found dead in a pool of silver moonlight strangled by her own brassiere, or at least that is what she wanted her obituary to read.  We talk about where that story came from, and the unfortunate passing of Debbie Reynolds (Singing in the Rain, The Unsinkable Molly Brown, Carrie’s Mother) just a day after Fisher’s death.  Our hearts go out to their family, celebrity or not no family should have to deal with so much loss in such a short amount of time.

Ghost Rider was too expensive to animate and that forced Agents of SHIELD to write him out of the show.

Spaceballs 2 is in the works with Sony to come out in 2019 according to Mel Brooks.  Rumouredly Jack Black has been brought on to play the role of Barf.

Thor is about to get Stranger Dr. Strange is going to get a larger role than just a cameo in the upcoming Thor Ragnarok.
