It’s Sunday, and in this final Geek News of the week we’ve got everything from Ghostbusters to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Let’s just jump into it:
Every Character To Return For Once Upon A Time Episode 100
Once Upon A Time returns from its mid-season hiatus tonight with its hundredth episode which is said to be full of some great surprises. I’m not sure how they’re going to do it considering the scope of the show but apparently we can expect to see every character this episode. Among other surprises we’ve also been promised a unique perspective of Storybrooke.
Ghostbusters Trailer Released
This week the trailer for Ghostbusters was released to mixed reception: some people loved it, others hated it. At the time of posting this, the Youtube video has more dislikes than likes but what do you think? I confess that I’ve never seen the original Ghostbusters films but from the trailer, this looks like a decent film:
Zootopia Sets Disney Box Office Record
It looks as though Zootopia (or Zootropolis in the UK) is going to take the record for Disney Animation’s biggest opening away from Frozen. The current projections for Zooptopia are $70-75 million, beating Frozen’s $67.4 million. I can’t wait for this film to hit the UK later this month, if you haven’t seen anything about it yet then look it up – it stars Jason Bateman, Ginnifer Goodwin and Idris Elba amongst others.
Spiderman Spin-Off, Venom, In The Works
With Sony’s revival of Spiderman, they’re also bringing back a project that they had put aside. Venom will be getting his own spin-off movie: as far as the movies go, we first saw Venom as one of the numerous villains in Spiderman 3 (played by Topher Grace) but they may go in a different direction for the movie. More recently in the comics, Venom has become more of an anti-hero than a villain but it’s unclear what direction they’re going in.
Flash & Cyborg In Batman v Superman
Where it had been previously said that The Flash and Cyborg would only appear in the Justice League films, it has been confirmed that they will now have cameos in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This is amazing and I don’t know why but I’m still not excited about this film!
That’s it today and this week but there will be more news on Tuesday morning so check that out. Until then:
Will you be tuning into Once Upon A Time Tonight? Any strong feelings about Ghostbusters? Do you want to see an anti-hero Venom? Let me know in the comments.
