LEAGUECAST #189 – SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON 2017 Wrap-Up

0

It’s one of the biggest Leaguecasts of the year, as the gang recaps all the geek awesomeness of San Diego Comic-Con! Join Jeff, Adam, Shawn, and The Shmozz as they run down and react to all the huge news, announcements, panels, and trailer releases coming out of the world’s largest annual conglomeration of geeks and industry professionals. In the first segment, the guys share their thoughts on the “thrilling” Stranger Things 2 trailer, the action-packed season 8 trailer for AMC’s The Walking Dead, The enigmatic Westworld season 2 trailer, and the pop culture reference madness of Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One.

Then the League takes on the Marvel presentations, featuring a screening of the Defenders first episode, Legion showrunner Noah Hawley saying he’s developing a Doctor Doom movie, Ant-Man & The Wasp revealing Michelle Pfieffer as Janet Van Dyne and other new cast members, Kevin Feige announcing the news that Captain Marvel will battle the Skrulls in the 1990s, the huge reaction to the Thor: Ragnarok and Infinity war trailers, and more! The crew then wraps up the show with an in-depth discussion of the DCEU Hall H panel, and try to make sense of the Ben Affleck/Batman controversy, Henry Cavill’s mustache issues, the slate of DC films announced (and what was left out), the news that Zack Snyder could soon be out of the DCEU completely, and of course, the Aquaman footage and the big Justice League trailer!

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.
