With San Diego Comic-Con making headlines this past week, Google's YouTube has decided that it's time to get into the Geek business. Google has announced YouTube Geek Week, which will "celebrate geek culture with a week of new videos, series premieres, epic collabs, and top tens from more than 100 channels across YouTube."
YouTube Geek Week will run from August 4th through 10th. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Geek Week will include talent from some of YouTube's popular channels like Felicia Day's Geek & Sundry and Stan Lee's World of Heroes. There will also be the premiere of a new trailer for Marvel's Thor: The Dark World. It's unknown if the Thor: The Dark World trailer will be the same one that aired at Comic-Con during the Marvel Studios panel, which has not been released to the general public as of yet.
Geek Week will feature special theme days, including Blockbuster Sunday, celebrating iconic characters, movies and shows that define geek culture (hosted by FreddieW); Global Geekery Monday, featuring anime from Tokyo, comic book heroes from Delhi and Doctor Who (hosted by YOMYOMF); Brainiac Tuesday, centered on science and education (hosted by Veritasium and The Spangler Effect); Super Wednesday, exploring superheroes, the supernatural and the weird (hosted by Stan Lee's World of Heroes); Gaming Thursday, centered on game-inspired series and video games (hosted by Macinima and Polaris); and Fan Friday, which includes sci-fi cooking, cosplay and nerd debates (hosted by Geek and Sundry). Saturday will compile the video highlights from Geek Week.
