Happy New Year, everyone! We hope your decade is off to a fantastic start. This year promises to bring us lots of new series, movies, games, and more, but what are the most anticipated releases of 2020? We turn to the Geekade team for answers in this installment of Ask the Geeks.
Matt Raimo (Waveback) : Bill & Ted Face the Music. I’m a huge fan of the Bill & Ted franchise and I’m so amped to see these guys get back in the saddle for some stupid humor.
Karen Randazzo (This Week’s Episode, The Think Tank) : Give me more Doctor Who and give it to me RIGHT NOW. Beyond that, I’m pretty psyched for new stuff from the MCU, including the Falcon and the Winter Soldier TV show and the Black Widow movie, and theatrical adaptations, like In the Heights and Tick, Tick, Boom! (No release date announced, but I’m hoping 2020). And let’s not forget the longest awaited sequel being released next year, Bill & Ted Face the Music.
Dean DeFalco (Vest Lord, General Administrator) : PS5, I guess? Yeah, let’s go with that.
Brenda Cierech (Tardy to the Party, 31 Days of Horror) : Stranger Things (is that even coming out in 2020?). Whatever happens next, it’s gonna be amazing.
Billy Ludt (Select Your Starter) : Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
Dave Marconi (You Shall Not Pass Go) : Cyberpunk 2077. That game looks all the right ways of insane and good.
Kris Randazzo (Stone Age Gamer, This Week’s Episode, Waveback) : Maybe this is a cop-out, but I’m most excited for the stuff Nintendo hasn’t announced yet. I love Nintendo Directs, and there’s really nothing like being surprised by some crazy new thing from Nintendo that I didn’t see coming. Will Metroid Prime 4 release this year? Will they bring Virtual Boy games to Switch? Will there be a new Kid Icarus? I don’t know, but I cannot wait to find out.
Amy Ebeling (Editor-in-Chief) : I’m so excited for the new Bleachers’ album, and Jack Antonoff’s Shadow of the City Festival in Asbury Park in June.
