Week in Geek | The 6 New DC Trailers Worth Watching

Week in Geek is The Companion‘s weekly digest of all the latest trailers, announcements, controversies, spicy memes, and more. Not everyone has the time or inclination to sit on social media all day staying on top of this… but we do and we need to justify the time we’ve wasted.

What We’re Looking At


What We’re Watching*

*DC Fandome edition

The hella stylish first trailer for The Batman shows a retro gothic pulp noir world pitched somewhere between Tim Burton’s first movie and Batman Begins. R-Pattz is going to KILL IT.
Ezra Miller’s dimension-hopping The Flash has a touch of Back to the Future about the first teaser and we’re LOVING IT. (Presumably this makes Michael Keaton’s Batman Doc Brown…)
This BTS from Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom is low on plot points but gives us a glimpse of some of the set-piece action sequences, cool new doohickeys, and all-new creatures in the sequel.
The breakout star of a movie consisting entirely of breakout stars (and starfish), the first trailer for HBO’s Peacemaker series is as gloriously dumb and lowbrow as we hoped. I wish an eagle would cuddle me.
It’s been a long time coming, but the new Black Adam featurette serves us the Justice Society and lots of hype from the charismatic Dwayne ‘The Rock of Eternity’ Johnson.
Finally following up that kickass teaser, the new trailer for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is still all cinematics but shows us more of the game’s open-world setting and story.

Sci-fi fandom needs your help. Nobody else writes the deep dive articles we do. Nobody else creates in-depth interview podcasts or invites you to put questions to showrunners and stars. And nobody else treats your favorite sci-fi shows and movies like they matter – like they can save lives or change them – but we do.

None of that is cheap. Great writing costs money, original analysis costs money, and audio/video production costs money. We keep our costs as low as we can, but we refuse to compromise on quality.

We’re not backed by studios or massive media conglomerates. There are five of us fighting every second to make The Companion all that it can be. We’ll never accept paid advertising on The Companion because if we did we wouldn’t be able to write about whatever you like, the way that you like.

That’s why we need geeks like you to join us
