Breaking down Netflix Geeked Week 2022

Netflix has recently launched a trailer hyping the 2022 edition of Geeked Week, adding to the excitement and anticipation of fans by providing a sneak peek into some of the most highly anticipated titles. 

The two-minute teaser provides the first look at a lot of titles, promising an exciting host of announcements from June 6th to June 10th, better known as Netflix Geeked Week. 

The long-awaited adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman takes up a substantial amount of time in the teaser and provides the first look at Gwendoline Christie as Lucifer. Tom Sturridge’s Dream is seen meeting Christie’s Lucifer at the end of the trailer; she greets him the same way Lucifer does in Gaiman’s comic, promising a faithful adaptation of the bestseller. 

Stranger Things season four is arriving in two parts on Netflix, with its first volume scheduled for a May 27th premiere while the second volume will release on July 1st. The trailer contains certain clips from the previous seasons, promising an explosive season four. 

The trailer also contains clips from shows like The Umbrella Academy, The School for Good and Evil, Shadow and Bone, Sweet Tooth, Resident Evil, First Kill, The Cuphead Show etc. 

Chris Hemsworth from Spiderhead and Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling from The Gray Man make an appearance as well, teasing the film slate. The trailer also contained clips from the upcoming animated flick The Sea Beast

While Netflix has ventured aggressively into the video game market and plans on revealing some titles soon, the trailer did not indicate any. The trailer also did not contain clips from Avatar: The Last Airbender which is currently in production.
