“He revealed quite a bit during the interview,” says Geek Syndicate’s Barry Nugent.

With news this week that Jonathan’s wife Jane Goldman is re-teaming with Kick-Ass director Matthew Vaughn to write X-Men: First Class, he also gives Geek Syndicate his reaction to the news as a die hard Marvel fan and a little hint of what we can expect.

There’s also information on his plans for his revamped Hot Sauce website and the return of his book review blog.
