Talking STRANGER THINGS Season 2, WONDER WOMAN Sequels, and Donut Day

The real world is getting tougher and tougher to live in, so why not take a quick trip to Themyscira? (Or, hell, we’d even settle for the Upside Down at this point!) On today’s Nerdist News Talks Back, we’ll be exploring the bounties of otherworldly locales like Wonder Woman’s home island, the Demagorgon’s stomping ground on Stranger Things, and that mystical black hole that exists in the middle of every one of God’s most heavenly creatures: the donut.

First up on today’s episode, host The Dan Cave spelunker Dan Casey, along with Nerdist Editor-in-Chief Rachel Heine and Because Science‘s chief lab technician Kyle Hill, will tackle news on the upcoming second season of Stranger Things. As Gaten Matarazzo told HuffPo, season two should drive us deeper into the Upside Down, introduce even more terrifying monsters, and ultimately end on a cliffhanger that bleeds into season three.

Next, we veer back to Wonder Woman, which has set up to do absolute gangbusters in its opening weekend. With a sequel now ringing as just shy of a certainty, but conflicting reports about when it’d take place, the Nerdist News Talks Back gang weighs in on Wonder Woman storylines they’d like to see adapted to the big screen.

It makes sense that so many people are opting to spend their weekends in the fantastical realm of the Amazon, considering such harsh revelations here in the real world as America’s disbandment from the Paris Agreement. To be sure, global warming is something to be quite terrified about. Science expert Kyle Hill weighs in on just how big a toll climate change takes on Earth–and even on the likes of Themyscira.

Leaping from DC to Marvel, we contend with a particularly gasp-worthy turn of events to grace the comic pages of late. If you haven’t heard (and spoilers if you haven’t!), our old pal Deadpool recently lay waste to another Marvel favorite, Agent Coulson. Comic book deaths don’t always last forever, but Deadpool’s expiration still has us asking a lot of big questions. And we’ll have Gerry Dugan on hand to answer some of them next week!

And before we leave you, we have Nerdist Social Media Editor Michelle Buchman handy to celebrate National Donut Day with a run-down of some of our and our fans’ favorite donuts in all of pop culture! Let us know yours!
