Patty Jenkins and Geoff Johns Already Working on WONDER WOMAN 2

Patty Jenkins and Geoff Johns Already Working on WONDER WOMAN 2

Today on Nerdist News Talks Back, Jessica Chobot was joined by Nerdist’s Managing Editor Alicia Lutes and Mothership writer/host Amy Vorpahl to talk about all sorts of things, like the Whedoning of the DCEU, the creators of Sherlock going full vampire, and NASA’s journey to your butt.

Since the release of Wonder Woman, there’s been lots of chatter about the suddenly more hopeful tone of the DC Expanded Universe, and evidently director Patty Jenkins and DC’s overlord Geoff Johns are already at work on a treatment for the sequel. This coupled with Joss Whedon taking over reshoot duties for the Justice League makes us think there’s a definite lane-change when it comes to the DC Comics movie films universe. And we’re into it!

Sherlock creators and Doctor Who writers Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss are heading back to television following what was very likely the finale of their sleuthing program. This time they’re going to tackle a TV version of Bram Stoker’s classic Gothic novel, Dracula. Moffat has already adapted a beloved horror novel with his 2007 series Jekyll, and Gatiss has long been a horror aficionado and creator. This is a cool thing, and our panelists agree.

There’s now a frigging Ken Doll with a frigging man bun. The panel says it’d be great if the hairstyles were detachable accessories. But, for reals, man buns are stupid. Either have long hair or don’t. You don’t see Kyle Hill with a man bun. (Editor’s Note: Sometimes you do.)

And finally, in celebration of Nerdist Science Week, we discussed NASA’s desire to make a return journey to Uranus. If you think they didn’t make all the puns in the known universe about this, then you haven’t met Jess, Amy, or Alicia.

Want to join us for a live discussion? Tune in tomorrow and every weekday at 1:00pm PST for another episode of Nerdist News Talks Back on YouTube and Alpha, and catch up with the archives immediately thereafter!
