Screen Shot 2014-04-10 at 11.41.25 PM

In an ongoing celebration of Batman’s 75th anniversary a brand new short has been offered up from producer Bruce Timm and DC Entertainment. It’s less than 3 minutes long, but it is one of the best animated things to happen to Batman since Batman The Animated Series. They even got Kevin Conroy (the one true Batman) to voice the Bat for 2 words.  (more…)

As a kid growing up watching wrestling one of my favorites was the Ultimate Warrior. Jacked up, face paint, ran to the ring and shook the ropes like a mad man! This past weekend he went into the WWE Hall of Fame and Monday night appeared on Monday Night Raw. Tonight he is dead.  (more…)

WIN a Marvel Sized ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ Prize Pack

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…)

Get Your First Solid Look at Captain America and Black Widow from ‘Age of Ultron’

- 04-04-14Comics, Film Posted by Luke Gallagher

If there’s one thing super hero movie sequels can guarantee, it’s that the heroes costumes will always change. It’s certainly not for the means of appeasing fans, but rather selling/marketing newness. That’s just the way it is.

Aside from Iron Man, the only other on-screen character to have a vast wardrobe is Captain America. His costume changes have certainly ranged in appeal as he’s gone from movie to movie. One can only wonder what variation of the costume is in store for Joss Whedon’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Well, actually, you don’t have to wonder. Thanks to some set photos and video from the production currently shooting in South Korea, we have our first look solid at Steve Rogers (played by Chris Evans). Oh, and if you care about Black Widow, we got some shots for her too (well sorta).  (more…)
