It’s been a crazy recording week this week for the What’s on Joe Mind crew…heck for most of them it’s been a crazy few weeks! We spent some time this past week talking to various different folks at different levels of the geek stratosphere, but perhaps none with such a large following as Ryan Penagos, AKA Agent M on Twitter. As Executive Editorial Director for Marvel.com he has his hands in many different pies, and is of course, a social media mastermind.
We interrogate him about Marvel Comics, Marvel Studios, Twitter, and even manage to sneak in some G.I. Joe related discussion. Check it out on our Podbean page, or listen to the embedded player below. Click the Read the Rest of the Story link below the player for the show notes.
With no offense meant to my good friends over at Hunter PR, who needs press releases these days when you have Twitter? Yes, by and large most folks have been referring to the G.I. Joe sequel using the “Retaliation” moniker over the past month or so, but today, thanks to director Jon Chu and his Twitter account, we have some measure of confirmation. He Tweets:
“Shooting film for GI JOE: RETALIATION. Yes film. Not video. I could smell the emulsion at today’s test :) :)”
Does that count as confirmation these days? In this case, I’d say so. To keep up to date with all of the intel for G.I. Joe: Retaliation, you can either follow Jon Chu, or just follow GeneralsJoes, I’m Retweeting like a madman these days.
Yes, I’ve succumbed to the wonders of 21st century technology and I now have a Twitter Account. If you so desire, click that link to follow me, or do what I’ve been doing for the past 6 months and just ignore it.
I’ve got a plugin installed that will populate my Twitter account automatically with every post, so get the latest news everywhere!
