This week’s Assembly of Geeks episode “Superman Dies and Kermit is Framed” is posted. From the show notes:
Today’s episode sets the tone with a classic Star Wars spot promoting collector’s cups. From those archives, we turn our attention to classic comics. Specifically, we take a look at the 1992 graphic novel about the death of Superman and discuss whether or not it should be turned into a movie. Would it be better than Batman vs. Superman? Would it be the big box office splash that DC and Warner Brothers would like to see? We attempt to answer those questions.
Some of the most anticipated movies of 2014 are finally hitting theaters and more will be here soon. So, we stop to gauge the level of enthusiasm on some of the geek films that are up next. Merchman, a big Muppet fan, has already seen Muppets Most Wanted. So, Ryan Dosier of the Muppet Mindset Blog join the Assembly to discuss it and the future of the Muppets in TV and film. In the news, we discuss digging up E.T. video games out of a landfill, more movies coming to IMAX, Game of Thrones continuing its story in theaters and the chances of a Pacific Rim sequel.
Roqoo Depot covers Assembly of Geeks in their weekly Podcasts in Review, plus a bunch of other great podcasts including RebelForce Radio, Coffee With Kenobi, and Full of Sith.
