Welcome to a very special edition of Nerdy Bits. Normally, this daily feature is a collection of various nerdy goodies from around the web – cool stuff that has slipped through the cracks or aren’t quite substantial enough on their own. Since the nerd world is transfixed on San Diego Comic Con this week (Brace yourself, it’s all you’ll be hearing about for the next few days), we thought it befitting to allocate this column to all the swag and other neat con items that might otherwise be overlooked. Nerdy Bits will return as usual next Monday. Until then, enjoy this Nerdy Bits – Comic Con Edition, with more to follow.

How Do These 17 Minutes of ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Footage Make You Feel?

- 07-21-14Film Posted by Luke Gallagher

Chances are that if you’re an original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan from the 80s and 90s, you are having a hard time accepting the new reboot produced from Michael Bay.  To be fair the “fans” of the original comics and the 1990 film were never going to be satisfied with whatever this movie was going to be.  The idea was to take material to another level for today’s youthful demographic and not just to appease overly-nostalgic fans. With that said, this latest behind-the-scenes video has the actors, doing what seems to be,  brainwashing audiences on “how awesome this movie is”. (more…)

The Ghostbusters And TMNT Crossover You Never Knew You Wanted

- 07-16-14Comics Posted by Luke Gallagher

tmntghost

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Ghostbusters are two of the most iconic and beloved franchises in popular nerd culture. It’s a shame that almost everything about them lately has been annoying – one having a frivolous and nonsensical movie reboot coming out (TMNT) and the other getting a 3rd movie regardless of fan objectification and creative dissent (Ghostbusters).

Our desire to see more of the films and characters we love – like Ghosbusters and TMNT – does not out weigh the worry that anything new will suck. A safe medium, however, has always been comic books. Depending on how serious the effort and whether or not cannon is stake, new stories and adventures in print are accepted or dismissed with little impact on franchise standings – it’s like a micro-verse where anything and everything can happen, and they often do. Offering fans a fun homage whilst satisfying that itch to see something new.

Now, having said that, I never thought I’d see Ghostbusters and TMNT cross paths. But, they are – in a crossover 30 years in the making… (more…)

Stan Lee Talks ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Cameo And Jokes ‘Batman v Superman’ Appearance

- 07-14-14Comics, Film Posted by Luke Gallagher

Stan-Lee

For many years now, the creation of a Marvel movie hasn’t been complete until former Marvel All Father Stan Lee has stepped in and made his cameo appearance.  All of Stan’s cameos have been great little nods to the comic community, who without, all these multi-million dollar super hero movies would never exist.

Never being shy to promote himself, Lee as has confirmed his appearance in Marvel’s upcoming tent pole super team extravaganza Avengers: Age of Ultron. He also (jokingly) teased something about Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. (more…)
