What’s On: Jun 12 – 18


The last Defender standing on Netflix, History Alive in Brisbane, Men in Black and the Battle of the Arcades is just some of the ton of things happening across Australia. Here is your guide to Everything happening this week in Geek across Australia.

1On Streaming/TV

This Friday Marvel on Netflix comes to an end with the final season of the final series left standing. With Daredevil, Iron Fist, Luke Cage (and the Punisher) all already cancelled and expected to show up on one of Disney’s own platforms sometime in the future, on Friday you can watch the 3rd season of the last Defender standing – Jessica Jones.

2In Cinemas

In cinemas this week watch the next in the Thor and Valkyrie buddy-cop movie franchise you always wanted as they jump across the multiverse and become Agents for the Men in Black. Also on Thursday if you are looking for something more in the vein of Dragons and Hobbits the Tolkien biopic also hits cinemas.

You can check back later this week for our spoiler-free reviews.

3Stuff To Go Do

The biggest Inter-Arcade event in Australia just got a little bigger this week and has become the biggest Inter-Arcade Event in Australia and New Zealand. We covered the Battle of the Arcades for 2018 but it’s back for 2019 with 6 Arcades in Australia and New Zealand participating this Saturday.

Teams from every Arcade go head to head to determine who is the BEST ARCADE OF ALL-TIME (until next year). Check your local and nearest participating before the event for your chance to join the team.

History Alive is an annual Brisbane based event that attracts over 600 historical re-enactors from WW1 Soldiers to Norse Warriors to a huge amount more. Moving to the Rocklea Showgrounds this year, if you are a fan of anything Medieval you might want to check this out this weekend.
