I'd love to hear what you think of the Internet's greatest moments in this week's "Geek Bits."

By The Way

I'm not sure if you heard that the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer dropped yesterday. It wasn't covered much in the news. ;) Unsurprisingly, a lot of our links are about that this week.

8. ‘Spider-Man’ Reboot Will Be About Peter Parker, Won’t Be an Origin Story (via /Film)
We had hoped they'd go with Miles Morales, but it's not going to happen this time. But, it does echo our feeling that Spider-Man should be a High School kid.
"We want to play with Spider-Man in the high school years because frankly there’ve been five Spider-Man films and the amazing thing about it is, even though there’ve been five Spider-Man films, there are so many things from the comics that haven’t been done yet. Not just characters or villains or supporting characters, but sides to his character. The most obvious being the ‘young, doesn’t quite fit in’ kid before his powers, and then the fella that puts on a mask and swings around and fights bad guys and doesn’t shut up, which is something we want to play with and we’re excited about." - Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios

7.Mystery Woman No Longer in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ (via /Film)

We speculated that she might be one of the Dora Milaje, but it turns out she was cut from the film.

Star Trek: The Animated Series - "The Infinite Vulcan" (01x07) - Not Recommended

Wikipedia Synopsis: "While visiting the newly discovered planet Phylos, Lt. Sulu picks up a walking plant, called a Retlaw, and is poisoned. The alien species that inhabit the planet, who are plantlike beings, approach and save Sulu's life.."
This is the worst episode so far. Besides the ship's doctor (who should be an expert on extraterrestrial life) being flummoxed by talking plants it also uses the same basic plot as "Spock's Brain" which is the worst episode of the Original Series. Plus, why do clones have to be 40 feet tall? Skip this one.

Here are some of the other reviews from my friends in the blog hop

  1. That jet is awesome.
    Archie versus Sharknado? Sure, why not?
    Another Spiderman reboot. I'm no longer excited.

  2. Are you guys currently breaking down that teaser trailer in the Geek Twins lab? Plus now you'll have the Batman v Superman one too. It's a teaser trailer bonanza!

  3. It's a tricky thing Alex but hopefully Marvel will still find a way to bring more diversity.

  4. Retlaw is an inhouse joke spelling Walter (Koenig) backwards.
