Do We Really Need a Live-Action JETSONS?

Do We Really Need a Live-Action JETSONS?

Gearing up for the long holiday weekend, we were treated to some darned weird bits of news, both cryptic and baffling, but certainly lots to mull over before we here in the U.S. get ready for barbecues and fireworks. But before we get to that, we’ve got a super snazzy Friday edition of Nerdist News Talks Back for you, with discussion of the Rick and Morty season 3 trailer, a surprising new slate of X-Men movies, and…do we really need a live action Jetsons? (The answer won’t surprise you.)

On today’s show utility infielder Amy Vorpahl is joined by Nerdist News writers Aliza Pearl and Joan Ford to discuss the various and weird things coming, and few things are weirder (in a great way) than the new trailer for Rick and Morty season 3. We did a very extensive breakdown of it on today’s Nerdist News, so I’d point you in that direction. It looks pretty awesome to our panelists, especially fightin’ pickle Rick!

Next up, Twentieth Century Fox announced the release dates for six unnamed, previously unannounced Marvel movies. It’s possible one or more of them are in the Fantastic Four vein, but hahahahahahahaha there’s no way that’s true. It’s very likely it’s six more X-Men movies between 2019 and 2021. Our panelists talk about what movies we hope to see as well as how they’re very clearly trying to catch up to Marvel Studios. No love lost there.

And finally, there’s going to be a new Jetsons show. And it’s going to be live-action. Why? But, like seriously, why is this happening? Is there a void in our TV lineup for a guy yelling for Jane to get him off of a crazy thing? Don’t we already kind of have robot housekeepers? It’s all…it’s all very confusing.

Have yourself a wonderful four-day weekend, folks! NNTB is off until Wednesday, July 5, so don’t miss us too much!
