Leo DiCaprio As The Joker, L.A. Noire On Switch, & Star Wars Episode IX | The Week In Geek

As the Star Wars carousel of directors continues, take some solace in a wonderful, epic trailer for season 4 of Star Wars Rebels. It’s the Week In Geek!

News in the world of geek seems to be rather cyclical these days, as we have been reporting on the same major topics but with different caveats. This week was no exception.

The big video game news of the week was brought to you by Rockstar Games on Thursday. We are finally getting a remastered version of Red Dead- oh, wait…. L.A. Noire is the game that Rockstar is bringing to current-gen systems, despite the longtime outcry of fans that have been waiting for a Red Dead Redemption remake. You might be surprised to hear that the game is not just coming to the Xbox One X & PS4 Pro, but also the Nintendo Switch and the HTC Vive. In TWIG, we tell you when the game is due to release.

The popular Star Wars Rebels is sadly embarking on just one more season. A new trailer for the show’s fourth season dropped this week, and we got to see quite a few callbacks to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The series chronicles the rise of the Rebel Alliance, and leads up to just 2 years before Star Wars: A New Hope. In other Star Wars news, Episode IX Director Colin Trevorrow and Lucasfilm announced that they have parted ways. It’s yet another change in leadership for the new Star Wars films.

DC is back in the news after Jared Leto expressed some disappointment in Warner Bros. decision to produce a Joker origins movie without him reprising his role as The Joker. Never fear (if you were into Leto’s performance in Suicide Squad), Leto will be back for at least two more DC movies. Regarding the Joker origins film, it sounds as if Leonardo DiCaprio could be on WB’s short list to play the role of The Joker. Only time will tell but usually where there’s smoke, there’s fire.
