Fantastic Four Casting, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Evaluated, American Hustle Preview, Captain Phillips Reviewed
Some very interesting conversation on this week’s GeekScholars Movie News, as the hosts kick things off with a rundown of the potential candidates to play the heroes in the Fantastic Four reboot, and what it means for the potential plot of the film.
Next, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. promised to expand the Marvel Cinematic Universe, following up on the events of The Avengers, but even though the show has a huge following, the GeekScholars debate if the quality stands up to its big screen predecessors.
Also, David O’Russell’s (Silver Lining Playbook) follow-up, American Hustle, which stars Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams, and Jeremy Renner, gets a pair of trailers, offering two very different takes on the highly anticipated film, which the crew analyzes.
Finally, Fox weighs in with his non-spoiler review of Captain Phillips, to close out the show.
