Geek/CounterGeek – #51: The Batman vs. Superman Showtacular

Disney has announced that Harrison Ford and Steven Spielberg will be joining forces on a 5th Indiana Jones movie. Ford will be 77 by the time the new movie comes out, but both Elliott Serrano and Keith Conrad are giddy as school boys about it.

Elliott has a brand new project that will be hitting shelves at your local comic store soon.

Plus, Elliott and Keith both saw Batman vs. Superman and bother were underwhelmed by it, and yet it is still making a boatload of money. It has Keith wondering if perhaps all of our storytelling standards are just a little too high.

Each week Keith Conrad and Chicago’s Top Geek Elliott Serrano debate a controversial topic in contemporary geekery: Kirk vs. Picard? Was Douglas Quaid dreaming in Total Recall? No topic is off limits.

Geek/CounterGeek – #46: Is Zack Synder’s Superman The “Real” One?

While he was appearing at Universal Orlando’s “A Celebration of Harry Potter” event, Rupert Grint, a.k.a. Ron Weasley, told The Huffington Post he thinks Ron and Hermione’s marriage wouldn’t have lasting power.  Elliott Serrano and Keith Conrad discuss the potential problems with the Weasley’s relationship. Also, if a love like that can’t last, what hope is there for the rest of us?

These days it seems all the rage to bring back popular shows for a new, albeit limited run. The X-Files a resurgence, plus later this month Netflix is bringing back Full House and now there is news that they will also be reuniting The Gilmore Girls as well. Elliott and Keith have a few other ideas for shows that need a comeback.

Plus, in a statement almost guaranteed to make Elliott’s head explode, Man of Steel director Zack Snyder has responded to critics of his movie by saying the Man of Steel version of Superman is “true canon” and his simply doesn’t understand why some people didn’t like it.
