Drive-by geekings: Batman, Community, etc.

His PARENTS are DEAD!→ Of course Zack Snyder tweeted out a picture of the Ben Affleck Batman the other day, and geeks lost their minds. Do we so easily forget that the visuals (and trailers) are literally the only thing he excels at? There is no doubt in my mind that Batman vs. Superman (and Wonder Woman!) will look fabulous. The trailers will be fantastic. But the movie itself? Ehh. On the other hand, there is a delightful meme, because of course. Also, my favorite tweet.

Community finally got canned. I’m sad, because it means that the only comedy I have left next season is Parks and Recreation (which is itself on the way out,) but I’m not shocked or angry or anything like that. It got two more seasons than Arrested Development, even if one of those seasons was produced in Bizarro World. It had a good run.

→ I’m more mad about Trophy Wife, which was actually good. Albert Tsai, I’m going to miss you most of all. I hope your next job is good enough to deserve you. Okay, that one isn’t so geeky. TOO BAD.

Channing Tatum is Gambit. I can’t even. Gambit is not that kind of hunk, Fox. If we must term this in People’s Sexiest Men Alive, Gambit is more Adam Levine than Tatum. (Yeah, he’s kinda skeevy, too. It’s part of the thing. Just accept it. Note I am NOT endorsing they cast Adam Levine.) If you really want Tatum, there are approximately 10 billion X-Men, and a fair amount of them are already musclebound lunkheads. (You were the bomb in 21 Jump Street, Channing. You’re just not Gambit, okay?) Yes, this is the closest I will ever come to being a casting brat in public, but you guys already know I have X-Men feels.
