On this episode of the GeekMundo Fun Times Podcast, the first ever in 2016 and the beginning of an all new season, Seattle Slim (@SeattleSlim) talks about casting Finn Jones as Iron Fist and why that was pretty good casting... For the most part.  We'll also be talking about why Gods of Egypt, like Exodus: Gods and Kings, absolutely bombed at the box office, and what it will take for a movie featuring ancient Egyptians to actually succeed at the box office in the age of Black Twitter and social media.  We'll be talking about this more (and uncut) over at The #PettyCast on iTunes, Soundcloud, and Stitcher (Rated E) so for a more in-depth, candid convo, make sure you subscribe to The #PettyCast and follow us on Twitter @thepettycast.
