God of War Ragnarök, Enola Holmes, and A Consuming Fire are three of the releases this November.

What’s Geeky in November 2022?

What up, Geeks?

Halloween is almost gone, which means it’s a time of rest, relaxation, and contemplation. Unless you’re in school, in which case, it’s time to panic.

But thankfully, we’ve got a full month with tons of great stuff coming your way! There’s the much-anticipated return to Wakanda, the next God of War game, and even a few books that would look great wrapped in paper with your name on them.

Let’s dive right in, shall we?

Movies and TV shows

November 3rd:

Titans, season 4

Season 4 of HBO's Titans.

HBO Max’s Titans are back! This time the team makes their move to Metropolis, where evil is on the move. Lex Luthor, the only man Batman ever feared, is joining the occult and it looks like he plans to take Connor Kent with him. If that weren’t bad enough, the Titans also have to contend with the alluring Jinx and the powerful Brother Blood. And there’s something else…

Slade Wilson is back!

The Dragon Prince, season 4

Season 4 of Netflix's Dragon Prince.

It has been two years since Callum, Ezran, Rayla, and Zym (and Bait, don’t forget about Bait) saved the dragon queen and the world from Viren and his evil army. Now King Ezran and High Mage Callum await the return of the Dragon Prince, Zym, and his mother as peace flourishes throughout the kingdom in this Netflix show from the head writer of Avatar: The Last Airbender.

But something dark and sinister is on the move as Claudia tries to save her father, the newly resurrected Viren, by contacting the mysterious elf from beyond the mirror: Aaravos.

November 4th:

Enola Holmes 2

Season 2 of Netflix's Enola Holmes.

Sherlock’s precocious younger sister is back on Netflix and ready for the game to be afoot once again. Following in her famous brother’s footsteps, Enola is now a detective-for-hire and looking for a missing girl. This new mystery, however, is connected to a dangerous conspiracy that will take Enola from London’s sinister factories to the flashy music halls, and even into the realm of high society.

November 11th:

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

The second movie in the Black Panther series.

Following the death of T’Challa, the entire nation of Wakanda is in mourning. Shuri has disappeared into her work room to tinker through the grief, while her mother, Queen Ramonda, and the rest of the nation, try their best to move forward. But unknown to them all, there are other, more sinister, forces at work. The underwater Mayan-esque nation of Talokan and their king Namor, fearing their own extinction due to Wakanda’s actions, have invaded.

If Wakanda is to survive an assault from a god, then someone else will have to put on the suit.

My Father’s Dragon

A new Netflix movie based on a children's book.

From the people behind The Secret of Kells and Wolf Walker, comes the story of Elmer Elevator, a young boy who has just run away from home only to arrive on Wild Island where he meets and befriends a dragon named Boris. Together they’ll have to work together to save Wild Island from sinking further into the sea and, in the process, discover more than either of them could have imagined. You can view My Father’s Dragon on Netflix.

November 22nd:

Strange World

Strange World available on Disney+.

Three generations of the Clade family, who were renowned as explorers until the elder Jaeger vanished, will have to work together to survive in a strange new place after the president specifically asks Searcher Clade to lead an expedition that could possibly save their world. The catch: he’s going to have to work with his father. You can watch Strange World on Disney+.

Blood Relatives

A Shudder original movie bout vampires.

In this Shudder Original, a 115-year-old Yiddish vampire named Francis suddenly meets the 15-year-old Jane. Not only is Jane a vampire, but she’s also Francis’ daughter. With nowhere else for either of them to turn, they decide to try out being a family.

November 30th:

Willow

Willow TV show by Disney +.

Now we get to the TV show sequel to one of the greatest fantasy movies ever made. Disney+ has kept the plot details closely under wraps but we do know that Willow, now more famous as a sorcerer than as a pig-farmer, is called back to battle the forces of darkness as a new evil gathers strength. All that we do know is that there will be trolls, the forces of good will have an uphill battle, and we will see more brownies!
