Start your MCU Marathon lead up to End Game! Sabrina returns on Netflix! Supanova in Melbourne! CapriCon in Rockhampton! The Sydney Brickshow, Shazam in Cinemas! You weren’t planning on having a quiet week were you? Here is your guide to Everything happening this week in Geek across Australia.

1On Streaming/TV

First up we have to call out that if you are planning on doing an MCU marathon to catch up to Avengers End Game at the end of this month then Wednesday you are going to want to start with the movie that started the MCU Iron Man. There is less than a month until the return of Thanos and we have your guide for what you need to marathon for it.

Next, all caught up on the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina? Then also in streaming this Friday you can continue with the Spellmans with part two starting on Friday for your binging pleasure with the entire second half of the season dropping at once. Might want to cancel some of your plans, you have a lot to binge.

2In Cinemas

Looking for what is in Cinemas this week? Say the word with Captain Marvel flying into Cinemas this week… no not that Captain Marvel the other Captain Marvel. After Aquaman we have big hopes for the new DC Cinematic and Shazam on Thursday will be our first chance to see if they can keep the streak going. Check in later this week for our spoiler-free review.

If that is too PG for you also in cinemas this week is the remake of the Steven King, Pet Sematary. If you love Steven King horror then this is for you, if not… probably don’t watch it with your pet.

And one more Cinema event this week although only for those in Brisbane on Thursday is Netherworld’s Two-Bit Movie Club having a special screening of the Nicholas Cage film, Mandy. This latest release is a bit different for the Two-Bit Movie club which usually brings you the best of the worst in film, but this Thursday the limited release Mandy will be playing in a special cinema session, not at Netherworld but instead the New Farm Cinemas.

3Stuff To Go Do

There are always tons of big events happening around the country with the Melbourne Comedy Festival continuing this week. If you are looking for more then also in Melbourne Supanova kicks off it’s 2019 season with everything you love about the biggest travelling con in the country with special guests, tons of cosplay and so much merch. It is on this weekend.

Travelling on to Sydney for LEGO fanatics still reeling from the new LEGO Store opening is the Sydney Brickshow which is one of the largest Fan driven LEGO events in the country. This year they are also raising money for NADO a group who supports people living with disabilities.

And wrapping up in Rockhampton for CapriCon! One of the longer running non-capitol city cons, CapriCon happens at the Rockhampton Libraries and strives to get bigger every year attracting multiple guests including Cosplay Ambassadors for the Con. This year will also include a Zombie Run… we assume as part of the Con, not as the starting point for the Zombie Apocalypse. It would be weird to advertise that.
