RevCast


Commentary, criticism and comedy about movies, TV and all corners of geeky genres and culture. A sci-fi convention in your pocket.

Aug 28, 2013

Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a new Batman: Ben Affleck! And as it does, the online nerd community reacts with the calm, reasoned response we've come to expect: outrage, hair-tearing and angry, threatening comments. *sigh*

So once more RevNews host Gary Mitchel turned on the Nerd Signal to call Deanna Toxopeus, Tegan Hendrickson, Michael Falkner, and Nathan Laws to discuss the announcement and the fan (over)reaction; talk about what they would (and would not) like to see in the upcoming movie; discuss why the geek community seems to be reacting so badly to everything these days; and to try to get everyone to CALM DOWN.

Our theme music this episode is "20 Minutes of Oxygen" by Darkest of the Hillside Thickets, courtesy of Divine Industries.Inc.
