Star Wars: What Happened? Arrowverse Season Roundup, E3 Preview

It’s a giant-sized edition of Geekville Radio this week! THREE huge topics!


Seth and Crazy Train return to talk the disappointing performance of Solo: A Star Wars Story at the box office. What could be to blame for the lackluster reception? Could this be a backlash due to poor audience reception of The Last Jedi? Or merely a result of a saturated market? Or perhaps the recasting of such a beloved character is the reason? Whatever the case, Solo and The Last Jedi have very different Critic vs. Audience ratings.


The middle portion of the show is devoted to the winding down of the current Arrowverse shows on CW. John Constantine has been announced as a regular for Season 4 of Legends Of Tomorrow. On top of that, a new showrunner has been announced in Beth Schwartz. What could we expect in the coming seasons? Are there any new or returning characters on the horizon?


Finally, E3 is right around the corner. Train and Seth chime in on what they hope to hear from the major game publishers this year.
