Tonight on Conan (guy with red hair, hosts a late night talk show) the 3rd and final trailer of X-Men: Days of Future Past was aired. If you’re a fan of director Bryan Singers X-Men universe then no doubt this will astonish you. He and FOX defiantly pulled out the big guns, that’s for sure.  If you’re a comic book reader, however, you may take umbrage with it.  (more…)

Stargate Universe – spun from Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis – has its place in fandom. Unfortunately, that very fandom wasn’t strong enough for the show to last beyond its two seasons, with it getting cancelled in 2011. Now 4 years later, and despite the shows lukewarm success,  a passionate fan has taken to Kickstarter in hopes of funding another season. He needs $50 million and 50 days to do it. Talk about a long shot.  (more…)

In salute to the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier  (a damn fine movie btw, be sure to read our review HERE), Nerd Bastards is hosting a ultimate fan pack giveaway extravaganza.

Short of taking a super solider serum, your best chance to be Captain America is to conduct yourself with his boy scout spirit… and to dress the part. You take care of the first half and we got the rest covered. We have the gear to make you a terror to spies and saboteurs. We’re giving away a cosplay hoodie, a Cap shield replica, Battle Helmet, Collectible Action Figure, as well as an exclusive Captain America: The Winter Solider IMAX Poster (*see full information below).  That’s 5 items worth over $100. All courtesy of 80sTees.com  and Hasbro Toys. There’s so much red, white and blue here, you’ll think you’re Uncle Sam’s sock puppet. (more…)
