DC isn’t worried about continuity in their movies, there’s a huge new theory about who might be the real big bad in The Last Jedi, and we got a new look at Riverdale season two. So yeah, we had a lot to cover on today’s Nerdist News Talks Back.Geek and Sundry‘s Amy Vorpahl, Nerdist News writer Joan Ford, and Bizarre States‘ Andrew Bowser joined host Jessica Chobot (yes, in full Orc makeup) for the best pop culture chat on the internet, and they started with the commentsÂ from DC Entertainment heads Geoff Johns and Diane Nelson in Variety. They said standalone movies in the DCEU won’t have to tie in together (outside of the big team ups). Will foregoing the successful approach taken by the MCU, and instead giving individual filmmakers freedom to tell the story they want to share, be a step in the right direction? Or is this yet another in a long line of DCEU mistakes? And would we have preferred Man of Steel with a lighter, less neck-snappy tone? As always, Nerdist News Talks Back was live today at 1:00 p.m. PST onÂ our YouTube and Alpha channels, just like it is every weekday. Tune in with us so you can be part of the conversation. Just like the DCEU you don’t have to worry about continuity issues if you missed the last installment.We still want you to share your thoughts on today’s topics, so talk back to us in the comments below.
Keep the nerd news rolling!
