It’s Not Looking Good For The Wasp Joining The Avengers

Since the first ‘Avengers’ film came out, geeks like myself have been wondering about what would happen with comics founding member The Wasp. With a handful of wonderful actresses who could potentially deliver a great Janet Van Dyne, we thought maybe she’d come in for the second film, show up in someone else’s, etc. Eva Longeria could’ve done it; Morena Baccarin would’ve been an acceptable choice; Rashida Jones might’ve finally jumped out of my dreams and into some skin-tight black leather. Moreover, Ant-Man co-star Evangeline Lilly would’ve been a top notch choice for the role. But, when Michael Douglas dropped by Comic Con and gave a little back-story on the film’s depiction of Hank Pym, it seemed to kibosh the likelihood of seeing the Wasp in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Ever. (Possible SPOILERS) (more…)

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.

ABOVE: Hot Toys Back to the Future 1/6th scale figure is coming. It’s about time (no pun intended) BTTF is getting the upscale figure treatment. It was its density, er I mean, destiny. In any case, your wallet is sure to say “Whoa Doc, this is heavy”. [Hot Toys] (more…)
