Marvelette Missives – Too Many Comic Book Movies?!

“Why are there so many superhero movies?”

“What’s with all the comic book stuff?”

“When is Hollywood going to move on from comics?”

These questions seem to come up a lot from movie-goers, primarily the Norms (i.e., non-geeks). So let me say this first: I enjoy super hero movies and don’t think there are too many of them. Now that that’s out of the way, let me explain. More

WBG Ep 125: Comics On The Brain

WBG with bkg2This week, the We Be Geeks team hit a milestone with their 125th episode. Comics are on the brain, as the team discuss what they like, what they cut, and a comic that surprised them. Lego is looking for more sustainable material to use, which is great for the environment, but the team is left wondering what they can actually use that will be comparable. Speaking of Lego, Lego Dimensions has some surprises up its sleeve, as you can buy each character you want. It may add up to a pretty penny, but it’s so worth it. Spider-man has a new lead, and a new director, and the group weigh in on their choices. Star Wars Rebels aired, but fans are confused if it’s the second season, or just a continuation of the first. Also it’s with sad hearts that Marty is leaving the show. He has been such a great podcaster and friend, but I have a feeling he will be back on to hang out. Brett and Derrick are a nice addition to the show, and will bring their geek knowledge to the table.
