On this episode of The Fanboy Garage, we unpack the second week run of Joker at the box office as the film put up big numbers making it the largest movie opening in October. In the discussion, we talk about the importance that Joker has on the broader comic book movie landscape.
From there, we discuss the recent news that Marvel Studios head honcho, Kevin Feige, has been named as Chief Creative Officer of Marvel. In the role, Feige is expected to oversee all creative content coming out of not only Marvel Studios but also Marvel Television and Marvel Comics. We speculate on the implications the move could potentially have on the variety of Marvel labeled products and shows.
Moving on, we share our excitement for the library of content expected to roll out on day 1 for the upcoming Disney + streaming service. From Bed knobs and Broomsticks to Avengers: Endgame, Disney + will have a plethora of content for audiences of all ages.
To close, we share the latest casting news that Zoe Kravitz has joined The Batman as Selina Kyle aka Catwoman. Additionally, news broke that negotiations to bring Jonah Hill onto the film as either The Ridder or the Penguin have failed, forcing him to walk away from the film.
