As the interview continues, Jen manages to turn the tables on by asking us questions about podcasting and other topics, occasionally turning the interviewers into the interviewees. A great interview that was a lot of fun for all of us.

                          We Be Geeks 227: The Return of Julz

                          This week on We Be Geeks the gang is almost all here. Brett is MIA for these next couple of weeks, and we will definitely miss him. Do you like digital? We take on the case for “Going Digital with ComiXology”. We all love comics, but is there a place for digital in our lives? Turns out there is! With limited space it makes it hard to collect sometimes. Also traveling with comics is much easier when doing digital. There is much to love about both, and we all love our Local Comic shops. Jessica Chastain was cast in X-Men: Dark Phoenix, after months of rumors. We have our fingers crossed that it will be good. Netflix is adding a new series from Matt Groening. “Disenchantment: a fantasy story that takes place in a failing medieval kingdom.” It sounds pretty interesting to us and the voice cast is stellar. With all of our love from Groening’s other shows, we will be sure to check this gem out. New Superhero shows in 2017? We have the list, and discuss our mad love, or dislike for each of them. All this and more, but only if you tune in.

                              It was a slow news week, but the the guys still managed to find a few things to talk about this week. They start off the show with their thoughts on the recent announcement about Erica Durance coming to Supergirl before moving on to discuss the Amazon series The Tick. Staying on the television front, The gang then run down the cast of the upcoming New Warriors series, some Luke Cage news, and an article about shows that have been, or will soon be, cancelled by Netflix.

                                We open the show up talking about the ridiculous war between San Diego Comic-Con and Salt Lake Comic Comic-Con over the use of the word Comic-Con. We move to more con talk with the announcement that Mile High Comics is not going to be going to San Diego Comic Con for the first time in 44 years. We move into talking about whether movie studios are pandering to overseas audiences instead of the US. With ticket sales for the new Transformers movie and The Mummy, it is hard to argue. We give reasons why The Last Jedi could be the best Star Wars movie yet. We can only hope. We move onto more movie news when Time ranks all the Spider-Man movies. Do we agree with the rankings? You will have to listen to find out. We end the show talking about the Doctor Who finale. Warning:Spoilers.

                                  There has been a lot of information coming out recently about the Han Solo movie, and we start this episode by diving in head first to discuss it.  Next, we talk about Darth Vader almost having a cameo, as an action figure, in Guardians of the Galaxy, which then leads us down a path of pure nostalgia.  We follow that by discussing the possibility of Captain Britain coming to the MCU, the likelihood of a Superman: Red Son live action film, and a new season of the Young Justice cartoon.  Next up, we talk about some news regarding the upcoming Judge Dredd TV series, a new Tremors series,  and the Fast and the Furious 9.  We then finish up the episode with a chat about a fan theory regarding Spider-Man in Ironman 2, and then talk about the Star Wars: Forces of Destiny cartoon.
