Geekville Radio #286

1:30 – Happy Loki Day!

Marvel’s latest MCU series, Loki, has premiered to mostly favorable reviews. It currently has a rating of 96% at Rotten Tomatoes which makes it the highest-rated of all series so far. For the record Marvel’s MODOK is at 88%, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is at 89%, and WandaVision is at 91%.

3:15 – Marvel Casts Their Kraven

Aaron Taylor-Johnson has been cast as the title character in Sony’s Kraven The Hunter. This certainly seems like it will continue the buildup for a Sinister Six feature film.

6:30 – Batman: Caped Crusader

Warner Bros. announced a new Batman animated series, Batman: Caped Crusader, for HBO Max and Cartoon Network. The series is being produced by a dream team of JJ Abrams, Matt Reeves, and Bruce Timm. We can only hope Paul Dini will be along for the ride at some point.

12:00 – My Adventures With Superman

Warner Bros. also announced an all-new Superman animated series, My Adventures With Superman. Like its Batman counterpart, it will air on both Cartoon Network and HBO Max. However, the creative team will be entirely different. Based on the promotional art the show may have an anime flavor to it.

16:00 – Emilia Clarke in Secret Invasion

Emilia Clarke is adding another notch to her geek cred. She will be starring in Secret Invasion in an unspecified role. Secret Invasion will feature Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury and will presumably follow the comic event of the same name.
