Welcome fellow agents of Precinct1313 to “The Week In Geek,” where we list our favourite comic-book, video-game and cult movie news from the past 7 days for your perusal and pleasure.
New Wonder Woman set photos;
With filming currently underway in the UK, for Warner Bros’ Wonder Woman movie which stars Gal Gadot as the amazing Amazon, more photos have emerged showing Gal and her co-star Chris Pine (who is playing Steve Trevor… twice!) on set in Southend, Essex. The pictures show the actors in the first half of the film, which is (now confirmed) set during World War One, with the latter half of the film set in modern day. The Themysciran demi-goddess will be gracing the silver screen some time in 2017, but can be seen first in next years highly anticipated (especially by us!) “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice.”
Become Ben Affleck in new Arkham Knight DLC;
Game developer Rocksteady released a new trailer for some rather interesting extra content for Batman: Arkham Knight. The DLC will feature the Batmobile and costume from next years Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice movie, giving the player a chance to play as Affleck’s version of the iconic crime-fighter a full four months before his big screen debut.
The DLC also includes two new missions that feature, Catwoman sneaking through a deadly toy shop that houses Edward Nigma‘s automated robot factory in “Catwoman’s Revenge”, and we follow Robin as he tracks down the duplicitous Two Face in “Robin: A Flip Of The Coin.”
Teen Titans Movie a possibility;
And lastly let’s finish on a little bit of rumour and speculation as a new post on JoBlo.com postulates that the planned 2020 “Cyborg” movie may actually be scrapped in favour of a Teen Titans flick. The 2020 Cyborg film is set to star Ray Fisher as the cybernetically enhanced Superhero, with the character making his initial silver screen debut in the 2017 planned Justice League film.
The much loved team of teens have already been stars of several animated series, and have a pilot in the works for a live action series at TNT. If this turns out to be true, it will be fantastic to finally see live action versions of classic characters such as Starfire, Donna Troy and of course one time Boy Wonder, Nightwing… fingers crossed on this one fellow Titans fans.
