But fret not, the crew also talked about the current state of super heroes on television (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Arrow) and what is on the horizon (Gotham, Constantine, and the Marvel Netflix deal).

Pax hosts this week and the nerds are joined by returning guest Jason Collier for a roundtable discussion on Disney's Star Wars Episode VII.  We talk about the first time we heard that Disney bought Lucasfilm and that they were going to make all new Star Wars movies.  We talk about what we know about the new movies, we talk about what we think we know.  We also talk about what we'd like to see and what we don't want to see.  We examine the news and rumors of the new Star Wars movies in great detail and we even talk about the rumored solo movies and what Disney plans to do with the the voluminous Expanded Universe.
