For the latest episode of the Geek Girls Universe Podcast, we sat down for an interview with Jon Levine your soon-to-be favorite friendly neighborhood TVA clerk. That’s right, Jon is part of the new series Loki.
Interview with Jon Levine
One of the standout moments in the new Loki trailer was when Loki ended up in the TVA’s version of the DMV. Only instead of waiting forever for your number to be called, you have to verify everything you’ve ever said. Absurd. Yikes.
In the room we see an adorable cat, that may or may not be a Flerken, and the paperwork clerk in charge of getting Loki to sign off on an inordinate amount of papers. That clerk is none other than Jon Levine.
We couldn’t wait to talk with Jon about his time on the Loki set. Naturally, we wanted all the details but we know how those pesky NDAs work. However, he shared what he could including what it was like working with the god of mischief himself. From what he told us, that scene is going to be awesome.
As with all our guests, we asked him about his favorite fandoms, characters, and movies, which included a little tangent about Taika Waititi because how can you not. Jon also talked about Cobra Kai, Flerkens, and a lot more.

This past week we got a new look at Black Widow, Loki, plus the Space Jam 2 trailer. Bruce Campbell continued to tease a cameo in Doctor Strange 2 and we got confirmation about another Sam Raimi favorite.
The new Black Widow trailer was released to celebrate the set-in-stone release date of July 9. Finally, Widow is coming. We think it will feel like seeing a Marvel movie for the first time because it has been so long!
Not only did Marvel share a peek at young Natasha and a young Red Guardian but they revealed the best look yet of Taskmaster. Taskmaster is a very interesting villain and will prove to be a massive challenge for Nat. Not to mention we know some other Widows are running around. Good thing she has her family by her side.
Seriously though, Budapest needs to feature here. Somewhere…
Marvel dropped the new Loki trailer and in case you haven’t watched it do yourselves a favor and do that now.
Is that a Flerken we spy? Who knows but when we see a cat hanging out outside of Earth we automatically think Flerken. Loki is as charming as ever and clearly, has a thing or two up his sleeves. But you can TOTALLY trust him Mobius.
Bruce Campbell Cameo in Doctor Strange 2
A few months back Bruce Campbell tweeted about working on a movie in a city with some people and that it was great. The image he shared was of London where Doctor Strange 2 just happened to be filming.
Then on April 1st (yes April Fools), he tweeted a piece of the supposed script where his character, the disheveled man speaks to Dr. Strange. He has been known to troll fans before, like last April when he teased a return of Brisco County Jr. However, with his other tweet and the fact Sam Raimi is working on this film…perhaps Bruce might actually be in the movie.
Welcome to the Jam! The new Space Jam trailer dropped, and we had some thoughts. As fans of the original, this one looks like it is going to be a lot of fun. At the end of the day, Zendaya (who is voicing Lola Bunny) better get to sing! We need another anthem like I Believe I Can Fly but you know sung by someone who isn’t that one person.
Marvel Studios released a new poster promoting the upcoming Loki series coming to Disney+ on June 11. It shows Loki in the custody of the TVA complete with a collar that much like Wanda’s in Civil War is meant to disrupt his power. However, one look at his face shows he is not concerned in the least.
Visually the clock is playing to the notion of his time traveling. It is also a nod to the TVA’s time machine from the comics. We have some thoughts about the lack of hexagons and the multitude of circles.
William Spencer, Andrew Garfield’s stunt double, shared and has since deleted a photo of him allegedly on the set of Spider-Man No Way Home. He also tagged Tom Holland’s stunt double in the caption and liked a comment that asked “are you on the set of NWH?”
While the multiverse angle of No Way Home has been out there for a while this would be more confirmation that it’s happening. However…
Pretty sure the dude is in a Marvel jail somewhere and will never work again. We have seen those NDA’s close up and they cover EVERYTHING.
Patriot Confirmed For Falcon and Winter Soldier
Elijah Richardson who was rumored to be playing Eli Bradley aka Patriot in Falcon and The Winter Soldier is confirmed to be in the show based on an Instagram story from his agency. That means one more for the Young Avengers and we are excited about it.
Fans of the Disney Channel franchise Zombies will be excited to learn that Zombies 3 is officially filming. The Zoms, Poms, and Werewolves must team up to take on a threat of galactic proportions.
Hey friends! Welcome to this week’s The Weekly Bugle Vol 5. We have a lot to discuss including The Mandalorian Chapter 12 ending, Loki rumors, the Snyder Cut, and more!
The Weekly Bugle Vol. 5
Spoilers ahead if you haven’t seen The Mandalorian Season 2 Episode Four The Siege.
The Mandalorian Season 2 The Siege
Just when you thought Baby Yoda couldn’t be any cuter, he goes to school. We have never felt more seen than when he used The Force to get cookies. Now if only that would work while waiting in line at Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge…
The big reveal for this week came at the end when we saw just what Moff Gideon has been up to. Those are DARK TROOPERS. Most likely these are based on the 2014 mobile game Star Wars: Commander characters of the same name. They even look the part. It will be interesting to see if they are a type of droid, clone, or super clone with dark force abilities.
Either way, Din, The Child, and all their friends are in for a big fight.
Sebastian Stan shared a behind-the-scenes picture of him relaxing in a chair. You can’t see much except that clearly he and Mackie are going to have that great banter they had in Civil War. It looks like Bucky isn’t over Sam not moving his seat.
Rumors are going around that more than one version of Loki will feature in the upcoming Disney+ series. And no, Tom Hiddleston will not be playing them all. Reportedly Richard E. Grant has been cast to play “classic Loki”, while kid Loki has been mentioned before, as well. But the real question is will Lady Loki show up too?
Jamie Alexander, Lady Sif, shared on Instagram that she was headed to Atlanta for work. Loki is currently filming in Atlanta which makes it likely Lady Sif will make her MCU return. Finally! In our opinion, she has been gone way too long.
Wonder Woman 1984 to HBO Max
WW84 will debut on HBO Max the same day as it hits theaters. This is an interesting strategy for DC. Depending on the success it may point to what other studios will do in the future.
In case you were wondering, we still want to see Black Widow in IMAX.
Justice League The Snyder Cut
For YEARS DC fans have begged, campaigned, and cried for The Snyder Cut. That wish is coming true. The Snyder Cut is coming to HBO Max in 2021. HBO released the trailer and well, we have some thoughts.
Hallelujah was overdone in the trailer. And it was hard to see but is Henry’s lip fixed for real this time? There are a lot of other thoughts but you’ll have to listen to the show to hear them. Leave your comments below and let us know if you agree.
But seriously, after the massive letdown of Justice League are you looking forward to this?
Scream 5 is Scream
Filming has wrapped on Scream 5 aka Scream. It is an interesting name choice (the original is named Scream) but at least the OG cast is back together. Now let’s see what dummy runs upstairs or loudly goes “who’s there?!”
In my best Titus voice, “What white nonsense is this?”
We Can Be Heroes
This is a follow up to Sharkboy and Lavagirl. Nope, Taylor Lautner is not in it. And the story follows the daughter of the two original heroes.
TBH never watched the first one but are you excited about it?
Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Reunion
Last week the trailer dropped, this week we saw the reunion. I’m just happy the OG Aunt Viv and Will made nice after all these years. She did not hold back either.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Reunion is available on HBO Max.
The Animaniacs are back and as funny as ever. The cyclops bit had me in tears! Plus Pinky and The Brain trying to go viral?! We could relate.
Animaniacs is available to stream on Hulu.
It’s Thanksgiving week, which means lots of fun holiday-themed episodes. One we are both excited about is American Housewife. Katy starts a vlog and goes viral for having a meltdown while trying to homeschool Anna-Kat and Franklin. I think we can all relate because distance learning SUCKS!!!
