The Social Blend podcast is back, and this week with a bit of a Geeks of Doom tang to it. Fellow Geeks of Doom contributor, and Associate Editor Hunter Camp aka MK2Fac3 joins us on the podcast this week – and we focus a lot on the latest details on Watchmen, Superman: The Man of Steel, Game of Thrones, and more.
Our first geek diversion in the show is looking at the new trailer for Iron Sky, which leads us into a whirlwind discussion of some of the work by Zack Snyder, including Sucker Punch and more. We debate the merits (or lack thereof) of the Before Watchmen prequel comic series from DC Comics.
Also we take a look at the latest news for Doctor Who Series 7, and the recent legal blues surrounding Ghost Rider.
Outside of our geek culture concentration, we also discuss some other news on the latest Social Blend, including Rick Santorum and the current Election news; and the recent passing of Whitney Houston.
For the past four years Finnish metal band lymystÃ¶ frontman Timo Vuorensola has been struggling to make his directorial debut Iron Sky a reality. Following the online debut of a teaser trailer in 2008 Vuorensola was able to secure the necessary $8.5 million in funding, a chunk of which was provided by fans who wanted to see the neophyte filmmaker’s dream come to fruition.
Now Iron Sky is completed and preparing for its world premiere next week in Berlin and a trailer for the finished feature has been released. You can check it out here below.
