Whoever said “Big things come in small packages” never met the Hulk or had to deal with Tony Starks ego, ’cause with those two big is big. Seeing these two larger than life heroes battle it out in this summers Age of Utron is going to be a sight to behold, for sure.

While an epic showdown is the buzz about town, the take-home worthy character or outfit has got to be the Hulkbuster, a suit Iron Man wears to try to handle Bruce Banner when he becomes the Hulk. It’s monster vs machine – or more aptly “rage against the machine”. Now kudos to The Hulk for having bulging muscles and curiously tight pants, but its clear everyone is putting their bets on Iron Man. And that’s all thanks to his marvelous Hulk Buster suit. Out of all Tony’s Stark suits, it’s this one that makes fans squee the most. It’s big, it’s bad, and it’s one of the only things to make The Hulk whimper like a struck puppy.

And now, thanks Hot Toys – the world’s foremost creator of high end scaled collectibles – you can own your very own high end Hulkbuster figure. Hit the jump and check this bad-boy out.  (more…)

He’s big, he’s bald, and well, maybe not so beautiful. I mean, if you consider a hellbent mob boss that can work your face like pizza dough with his hefty trash bag sized fists, then sure I guess there’s some beauty in that.

Marvel’s Daredevil premieres on Netflix on April 10. Leading up to the anticipated premier, fans have been treated to a refreshingly brooding style  trailer, couple of motion posters, and a few official photos featuring lead characters like Foggy Neslon, the Night Nurse and the titular hero himself Daredevil. One big character (and I mean that literally) that we haven’t seen much of is the show’s lead villain Wilson Fisk, aka The Kingpin. The character was given a passing pan in the trailer for Marvel and Netflix’s Daredevil series, but now USA Today have debuted our first proper look at Vincent D’Onofrio (Full Metal Jacket) as The Kingpin.  We also have some quotes from the actor, so click on through and have a look-see.

Nerd Bastards Recaps The 87th Annual Academy Awards

B-grRbSIAAAUtmN

So what do you say about the 87th Annual Academy Awards and its list of nominated films that most people aren’t going to watch until they come out on Netflix (Foxcatcher and Whiplash you’ll be in my queue soon enough)? Or how do you recap a show in which all of its take away moments are instantly shared and talked about on social media? I’m truthfully not sure. But lets give it a try.

This year’s Oscars was fun, surprisingly relaxed, and cheerfully heart warming. It also featured Neil Patrick Harris in his underwear. So yeah, there’s that. (more…)

Game of Thrones is a super serious show. For a live action fantasy it’s rife with violence, torment, politics, death, and copious amounts of nudity. Warring factions, family disputes, power plays, and survival…. all that is an illusion shattered when you watch this behind the scenes Blooper reel from Game of Thrones season 4.

Be warned that minor spoilers lie ahead if you’re not caught up. (more…)

The idea of rebooting Indiana Jones  (or any classic pop culture movie property for that matter) is almost an abhorrent idea. I say almost because certain people involved in this talked about new version are not only giving moment for pause but making the hate meter go in the other direction (at least for some people).

None of this is official or even substantially accurate, but it’s been going around the interwebz that Disney has Chris Pratt as the frontrunner to take on the mantle of whip cracking archeologist Dr. Indiana Jones. While fans of the franchise have been debating the potential of Pratt replacing the role made famous by Harrison Ford, now one half of the creative team from the original movies (supposedly) both endorses that idea and wants to direct him in it.

With Marvel Studios getting all the attention these days (you heard Spidey is coming back to Marvel, right?) We haven’t heard much from the DC camp. Sure, hearing about the casting announcements and rotations on the upcoming Suicide Squad movie (which is gonna a be nuts!) makes for a good proverbial snack, DC/Warner Bros. need to give something more. Well more they have given!

How about our first look at Jason Momoa‘s Aquaman from Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice? That ought to do, right? (more…)

In space no one can hear you scream….But I’d probably scream anyways if one of these Xenomorphs was after me.

20th Century Fox has apparently made a deal with director Neill Blomkamp to develop a new Alien movie, sources are saying.

Blomkamp, who directed District 9 and the upcoming Sony feature Chappie, had been trickling out a batch of radical Alien concept art to Instagram last month. The art showed, amongst other things, a re-teaming of Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) and Hicks (Michael Biehn), Ripley in some kind of xenomorph suit, and the alien ship from the first film (and it’s follow-up “prequel” Prometheus) in some kind of hanger. When the art appeared, no one knew what they were looking at – a movie, a game, a flight of fan fiction? (more…)
