Johnny Depp as the Doctor?

The word on the web is Russell T. Davies is said to have written a script for a big budget movie for the hit BBC show Doctor Who that is set to release in 2012. Actor Johnny Depp has been cast as the role of The Doctor. With that said who is going to be his companion? Why couldn’t David Tennant have stared in it? So many questions that needs and hopefully will be answered soon.

I will not go into full length detail on this post. To find out more you can visit the source below, or stay tuned to our Doctor Who Season 5 episode of GeeksFTW! This episode will most likely be episode 15 so make sure you subscribe to us on iTunes,Zune, or RSS reader.

Sony Picks Peter Parker

Looks like the new Peter Parker will be played by Josh Hutcherson. Josh Hutcherson is best known for staring in Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant and Journey to the Center of the Earth. This 17 year old actor has been reported to have been cast for the Spider-man’s Peter Parker by Blue Sky Disney.  This seems to leave me with more questions. Who will be the Villain? Who will be playing the Villain? Who will be playing the love interest? Those questions and many more. Looks like we will just have to wait to find out more.

Spider-Man swings onto Broadway


This is an amusing video from the 2010 Tony Awards. Host Sean Hayes dressed up like Spider-Man and started singing. Then reveals Spider-man the Musical is coming to Broadway this season.

This may be news to some, but it was announced a while back. Music and lyrics are provided by U2’s own Bono and The Edge. It is also being Directed by Julie Taymor whose best known work would probably be Across the Universe which was the Movie/Musical that used music from The Beatles to tell its story. To find out more info you can check out the official Spider-Man on Broadway website.

I know as a Comic book Geek and a Drama Geek I am hoping this does well enough that they go on Tour like a variety of other Broadway Musical’s and Plays do. I also wonder what could be next. Hulk the Musical? Maybe even Dark Knight on Broadway? Time will only tell.
