The Geek Assembly is back – bigger & better than ever.  Three weeks ago, Merchman, Admiral Eighties, Fangirl and GANNIN went on a mission to bring more voices and more geeks to the Fantastic Fortress.  Mission Accomplished!The Mighty Movie Master, Bobby Blakey is there to greet the geeks as they return and that leads to a discussion about the best & worst geek movies of the summer.We have three very special Star Wars guests:  Mark Newbold of Jedi News UK is here to share his thoughts on the latest round of Episode VII rumors.

Pete Morrison of Rebels Report joins the assembly to discuss what we can all expect from the Star Wars Rebels TV series.  
Plus, John Jackson Miller previews his new book Star Wars: A New Dawn, which features Hera and Kanan of Star Wars Rebels.

We also try to figure out who the heck Scoot McNairy is going to play in Batman vs. Superman and we discuss Marvel’s post Age of Ultron plans.

All of this plus, geek assembly members share their opinions on geeky summer movies, Star Wars Rebels, rumors and the new season of Doctor Who.
