Geekery Saturday – SDCC Edition

Lots of news happening this weekend, as the Geek world descends upon San Diego for Comic-Con. Let’s take a look at some of the highlights.

The rumor mill has been going in overdrive about the DC Movie Universe Batman, as Ben Affleck may be planning a Bat-Dance out of the role. He’s portrayed Bruce Wayne/Batman in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, with a reprise already filmed in Justice League. The standalone film, titled THE BATMAN, may be in jeopardy, though. Affleck has already backed out of directing the film and new helmer Matt Reeves has said the studio is scrapping his script.

Over in the Marvel Netflix universe, Jeph Loeb announced yesterday that IRON FIST would get a second season on the streaming service. No date was announced for the new season, but the character will appear in The Defenders, which drops Aug. 18.

Here’s a new trailer for THE DEFENDERS:

After being published by Archie Comics for 25 years, comics starring SONIC THE HEDGEHOG will soon by published by IDW, after the property was abruptly dropped by Archie.

The CW released a video showing the comic book origins of its DCTV heroes, including the upcoming BLACK LIGHTNING, which debuts in the 2017-18 season.
