Wizard World 2019 News: James Marsters Dropped??

So a few days ago, I was roaming around Twitter as you do and saw a post from James Marsters say that he was dropped random from Wizard World Portland. With no reason as to why, he went on to inform everyone that was coming to this comic con. I might note that this Wizard World is vary heavy on the Buffy theme with Alyson Hannigan, Alexis Denisof, Juliet Landau, Julie Benz, Amber Benson, Clare Kramer, and Charisma Carpenter.

With an out cry from his fans trying to figure out as to why he was removed from the line up. I personally went and asked my PR that I go through for my press pass and asked him. He didn’t have any idea as to why he was dropped as well. So after a few conversations back and forth, later on that day James updated he Twitter stating:

Jan 29

After seeing the concern and love from everyone last night, both me and ‘s management have mutually worked things out. I’m so happy to announce that I will still be attending Wizard World Portland! I’m very excited for this Buffy extravaganza and seeing you there!

A New Podcast Is Coming

Before I explain the new podcast that is about when the launch date is about to happen. I must share a bit of sad news about Geek Fallout’s end. Earlier this month the original owners/creators of Geek Fallout made the move and ended the podcast.

“Me(Mike King) and Richard Rehder are hanging up the Geek Fallout network. My first podcast was with them and still exists, with a new name, Tech Chatr, on the Chatr Nexus. If you don’t like tech talk podcasts, we will have other kinds of shows in the near future so stay tuned. And be sure to like that page and send in stuff you would like us to review, or if you would like to guest on our shows. Can’t wait to hear from you all

I’ve been doing Geek Fallout for a number of years and it was also my first introduction to podcasting as a whole. Because of this podcast I went on to do a number of shows, like: Trek1701, Random Nerdness, Geek Fallout Top 5, Eclectic Mayhem Podcast, Geek Fallout Comic Book Eps. While it is a sad time, it does gives us a change to start anew.

So with this clean slate, Chris Lockhart and I are now starting up a new podcast called The Pop Culture Pub. This is Chris’s brain child and asked if I would be his new co-host for the show! Together we’re working to bring something new to the table and bring in some past podcasting friends. The current link for the show is on Podbean (The Pop Culture Pub ) and there is a iTunes profile being made at the moment. I’ll post that here soon! There is current a few shows posted, that were made by Chris Lockhart explaining the new show and the over all idea behind it.

Melissa Benoist, who headlines the CW series “Supergirl,” and Tyler Hoechlin, who had a key role in MTV’s “Teen Wolf” as well as a recurring spot on ‘Supergirl’ as Superman, are among a few popular celebrities added to the lineup at the seventh annual Wizard World Portland at the Oregon Convention Center, February 22-24. Benoist, making her first Wizard World appearance, will attend on Saturday, February 23, while Hoechlin will appear on Saturday and Sunday.

Benoist first portrayed the “Kara Danvers/Supergirl” character in episodes of the DC series “Legends of Tomorrow” before reprising the role in “The Flash” and “Arrow.” Now in its fourth season, the acclaimed show chronicles the adventures of Superman’s cousin. Benoist’s other roles include the 2018 Paramount TV miniseries “Waco,” feature films Patriots Day and Lowriders and the Oscar-winning movie Whiplash.

In addition, several other notables have been added, including Ray Fisher (Justice League, Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice), Stella Maeve (“The Magicians”), Iyari Limon (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”).
