This week on the LeagueCast, Jeff, Shawn, Adam, and Aaron pay homage to the legendary sci-fi icon Leonard Nimoy. The League share their memories of the legendary actor, director, and artist – discussing where they first saw Spock, and their favorite lines/moments from the highly inspirational Vulcan science officer. Then, it’s off to a brief edition of THE FLASH ROUND, where each host brings a random topic to the table.

This week’s Flash Round topics:

  • Adam brings up the reaction to the news that the Marvel Studios’ reboot of the Spider-Man films might star a non-white actor as Peter Parker, or a half black/half Latino actor as the Miles Morales version of Spider-Man.
  • Aaron asks which comic book supervillain would be the best candidate for a solo movie.
  • Shawn asks about the current problems bringing down the Arrow TV series, and what can be done to “right the ship.”
  • Jeff wraps things up by discussing Neill Blomkamp directing Alien 5, and the minor controversy surrounding the concept that the film may disregard Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection

About Author

Jeff Carter

Jeff is the defining voice of his generation. Sadly, that generation exists only in an alternate dimension where George Lucas became supreme overlord of the Earth in 1979 and replaced every television broadcast and theatrical film on the planet with Star Wars and Godzilla movies. In this dimension, he’s just a guy from New England who likes writing snarky things about superheroes, monsters, and robots.
