Weekly Geek Roundup: Star Wars news, a Doctor Who proposal, a Goosebumps movie and More!

- Star Wars: In case you've been living under a rock, the cast for the new Star Wars film was officially announced. YES for them bringing back the original cast members. BOO for their being only one other female aside from Princess Leia. Also, in case you ever read any of the awesome expanded universe books--that universe is now dead and gone because everything is terrible.

 

- Jurassic World: Set photos have finally arrived! Although, I'm still bitter that they're not bringing back the original cast for this movie.

 

- Goosebumps: The new Goosebumps movie sounds really really really weird. It stars Jack Black as RL Stine and it's about the author being stalked by his monsters from his book. It's like a kid-friendly version of Lunar Park by Bret Easton Ellis.

 

- Wolverine: The Death of Wolverine comic is coming out in September. How many months after that will they start a The Return of Wolverine comic, AMIRITE?! Yawn.

 

- Resident Evil: Apparently, there is a 6th movie coming out. ARE PEOPLE STILL SEEING THESE MOVIES!?

 

- Doctor Who: A couple got engaged while doing a Comic Con photo op (there's a video if you click that link) with Matt Smith and Karen Gillan and even I can't be a dick about it--it's really cute. Gillan and Smith seem genuinly happy for the couple. Also, Gillan and Smith better do a photo op thingy at NYCC or I'll....complain a lot on the internet about it.
