Chris Ferrell is a long time fan of a variety of so called nerdy things. Growing up he was introduced to Star War, Star Trek, and Babylon 5 by his father. That grew into a love of just about all Sci Fi and fantasy. Add in his fanboy nature when it comes to comics and Chris probably has too many things he's interested in.

Nowadays Chris espouses his love for all things good and nerdy in both podcast and blogging forms. Chris is a staff writer at Gonna Geek. In addition to that he is the co-host of a bunch of podcasts. Basically, if you want to hear someone ramble about nerdy things, Chris can do it.

Given the opportunity, SP would gladly slip through the Stargate to begin colonizing a new planet and living the Little House On The Prairie life or suit up to mine the solar system's asteroids for precious metals, gems and hidden signs of ancient advanced societies.

    2. Long article
    3. About the show ending, Stephen Amell said, “I’m very emotional and melancholy, but it’s time. I’m 38 years old, and I got this job when I was 30. I’d never had a job for more than a year. The fact that I’ve done this for the better part of a decade, and I’m not going to do it anymore, is a little frightening.”

ARROW NEWS:

  1. Arrow’s Katherine McNamara Promoted to Series Regular for Final Season (Date: 11 July 2019)
    1. TVLine has learned that Katherine McNamara, who debuted and recurred during Season 7 as the 2040 street fighter-turned-rebel leader, has been promoted to series regular status for the CW drama’s 10-episode farewell run.
    2. The news comes as little surprise seeing as Joseph David-Jones, who plays Future Connor Hawke — Ben Turner aka Bronze Tiger’s son, who is ultimately adopted by Diggle and Lyla — was himself promoted to series regular last month. Plus, as first reported by TVLine, the role of Diggle and Lyla’s grown-up biological son, John Jr., is being cast for the flash-forward storyline, in which he thus far has only been referenced or encountered off-screen.
    3. Arrow kicks off its 10-episode final season on Tuesday, Oct. 15 at 9;8c, with the premiere titled “Starling City.”

GENERAL DC News

  1. Legends of Tomorrow: Constantine to Return for Season 5 (Date: 10 July 2019)
    1. Ryan is returning as a series regular for the show’s fifth season which will debut at midseason. This will surely be good news for Constantine fans as well as will be very helpful for the Legends themselves considering how the Season 4 finale teased at a major new threat coming for not just the team, but the world.
    2. https://comicbook.com/dc/2019/07/10/legends-of-tomorrow-matt-ryan-constantine-series-regular-season-/
  2. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow ups Astra actress to series regular for season 5 (Date: 11 July 2019)
    1. Astra Logue will continue to cause trouble for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow in season 5. EW can exclusively reveal that Olivia Swann, who portrays Astra, a.k.a. Constantine’s Achilles heel, has been promoted to series regular for season 5. It’s fair to say this doesn’t mean anything good for the Legends seeing as how last season ended with Astra releasing the souls of Genghis Khan, Charles Manson, and many other historical bad guys back into the world of the living.
    2. “A lot of what Constantine is going to be dealing with this is season is his very complicated relationship with her and a desire to save her despite all the pain and trouble she’s putting us through,” producer Keto Shimizu says.

GENERAL DC News

  1. DC Comics Just Killed Its Vertigo Imprint (Date: 21 June 2019)
    1. DC Entertainment has confirmed that as of January 2020, Vertigo—renamed in part for last year’s shakeup as DC Vertigo—will wrap up operations, as will the DC Zoom and DC Ink YA brands.
    2. Replacing Vertigo, Zoom, and Ink will be three new age-banded labels for all of DC Comics’ content: DC Kids, for readers aged 8-12; DC, for readers 13 and above; and finally DC Black Label, for readers 17 and above.
    3. In a statement acknowledging the closure, DC Editor in Chief Dan DiDio stated: We’re returning to a singular presentation of the DC brand that was present throughout most of our history until 1993 when we launched Vertigo to provide an outlet for edgier material. That kind of material is now mainstream across all genres, so we thought it was the right time to bring greater clarity to the DC brand and reinforce our commitment to storytelling for all of our fans in every age group. This new system will replace the age ratings we currently use on our material.

GENERAL DC News

 

  1. The CW’s Batwoman Announces Series Order with First Teaser (Date: 7 May 2019)
    1. The CW has announced the Arrowverse spinoff Batwoman has been picked up for a series order. Along with the announcement is the first teaser for the series, featuring the iconic Bat symbol and our first look at the show’s logo. Played by Ruby Rose, Batwoman made her Arrowverse debut during this season’s yearly crossover event, titled “Elseworlds.”
    2. Even though Batwoman will follow Kate Kane’s exploits in Gotham City, the series will only get “as close as it possibly can” to Batman without ever physically introducing him. As for his alter ego, Bruce Wayne, he “remains off-limits for the foreseeable future” as far as The CW is concerned.

  2. Jeopardy Featured A Question on DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow (Date: 9 May 2019)
    1. Last night’s episode of Jeopardy! featured a question about DC’s Legends of Tomorrow — although nobody on the episode could successfully answer it. But for comic book fans, the coolest thing going on last night was a reference to The CW superhero show, in which Caity Lotz plays Sara Lance/White Canary, a role she originated on Arrow. “Filipino martial arts training helped Caity Lotz play Sara Lance, the “White Canary,” who leads the time travelers on this DC show,” the answer read (the question, of course, was “What is DC’s Legends of Tomorrow?”).

ARROW NEWS:

GENERAL DC News

  1. The Flash Gives Major Shout-Out to DC Writer Gail Simone (Date: 30 April 2019)
    1. The Flash just gave DC writer Gail Simone her due. In “Gone Rogue,” the latest episode, Nora West-Allen stole blueprints from a company named after her. In the very opening of the episode, Nora headed straight for G. Simone & Associates: Architecture, Planning, Interiors. There, she took the blueprints for McCulloch Technologies off the server, then fried it with her Speed Force lightning.
    2. Simone, of course, can be credited with bringing Rag Doll into the spotlight. In her cult classic run on The Secret Six with Dale Eaglesham, Rag Doll was an integral member of the team; the character quickly became a DC fan favorite after her run. Since Rag Doll was featured heavily in “Gone Rogue,” it makes sense for Simone to get such a major shout-out.
    3. In addition to her work on The Secret Six, Simone is a prolific comic book writer. Her major credits include Birds of Prey, Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Red Sonja, Deadpool, Leaving Megalopolis and Clean Room. She recently wrote Domino for Marvel Comics and now serves as chief architect for Lion Forge’s superhero line, which makes her Flash namedrop all the more fitting.
