Weekly Round-Up || Geek News

Happy Sunday, I hope your week was all kinds of awesome. From trailers to casting and pushed back release dates, there is just so much to share so let’s get started.

Best Piece Of News

Donald Glover has officially been cast in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Remember when the Internet was ready to storm Marvel headquarters, complete with flaming torches and pitchforks to get Glover cast as Spidey? Well they finally got what they wanted – except not. Tom Holland is still playing Spider-Man (and based on Captain America: Civil War he’s going to be great) but Donald Glover has an unknown role in the film.

Worst Piece Of News

The sequel to the surprising hit, The Lego Movie, has been pushed back from a May 2018 release to February 2019 by Warner Bros. Whilst this is definitely sad news, The Lego Batman Movie will hit screens early next year and help to bridge the gap plus the extra time could mean that film will be even better. Optimism.

Most Bizarre Piece Of News

Gotham is re-casting the role of Poison Ivy for their upcoming third season. Why are they doing this? Well that would be because the current actress, Clare Foley, is 14 years old and they didn’t want it to be super-weird when they began to sexualise the character.
