Gather around, denizens of geek! It’s that time of the week again where we sit together around the warming fire of hot nerdy news and poke at it with silly questions – we’re imagining the questions like little marshmallows on sticks. Yum…

In movies, we heard that Todd Phillips might be making a sequel to Joker, but then the director himself came out and quashed the news. We also heard that Pom Klementieff is joining the Mission: Impossible franchise and Rocketman‘s Dexter Fletcher is making a Renfield movie all about Dracula’s henchman.

In TV, we had a little giggle at the first trailer for Armando Iannucci’s Avenue 5 and marvelled at a massive pile of Doctor Who series 12 news – including the casting of Stephen Fry in the series premiere. We also heard that Amazon’s The Lord Of Rings show has already been renewed for a second season.
