Who Won the Week Episode 69: Ghost in the Shell, Joss Whedon's Batgirl, and more!

Dec 18, 2018, 5:00 PM EST (Updated)

Welcome to the latest episode of Who Won the Week, a weekly podcast in which Syfy Wire staffers Adam Swiderski, Aaron Sagers and Dany Roth look back at the week that was and the stories that are blowing up the geek-o-sphere.

The live-action adaptation of anime/manga classic Ghost in the Shell has had a fraught road to the screen, with a lot of controversy over the casting of Scarlett Johansson in the lead. Now, it's arrived, and the proof is in the robotic pudding. Did we enjoy it? Find out as we break down the movie, plus take a look at the idea of Joss Whedon directing Batgirl, and a bevvy of new trailers (Justice League, Spider-Man: Homecoming, It, and War For the Planet of the Apes) in the latest episode of our examination of the week in geek!
