My New Favorite Commander Shepard On The Citadel

Every day, the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time. We here at Nerd Bastards try to bring you the best bits of news and nerdery the webz has to offer, with a bit of snark thrown in. But sometimes not everything makes the cut. Every Wednesday and Saturday (mid week/end of week) we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks.

We May Know What ‘Fantastic Four” Is About. Or Not. Probably Not.

If I’ve said (written) it once, I’ve said (written) it a million times: if you are going to remake, reimagine, reboot, reinvent, or whatever other “re” buzzword that Hollywood feels like using this week, a movie or franchise, you have to bring something new to the table.  As the Fantastic Four re-whatever is getting closer and closer to seeing the light of day, it is becoming more of a case of “be careful what you wish for”.  Hot off the heels of the recent Dr. Doom bomb that hit, a new synopsis for the Josh Trank helmed Fantastic Four movie is making its way through the interwebs and if it is to be believed, Trank is changing a hell of a lot more than Victor Von Doom’s origins.

The Team-Up You Didn’t Know You Have Been Waiting For: Hulk Hogan To Join Scooby-Doo

Like many people, Scooby-Doo has been a part of my life ever since I can remember.  When I was a kid, I couldn’t wait to get home after school to watch my favorite Scooby-Doo reruns, or for Saturday mornings to watch A Pup Named Scooby-Doo back when it was a brand new series and Saturday morning cartoons were king.  I loved all of the incarnations of the series but my favorite was The New Scooby-Doo Movies.  Every episode featured a guest star and watching my favorite superhero, Batman, working a case with my favorite teenaged sleuths (I wouldn’t discover The Hardy Boys or Nancy Drew until a little later) was one of the most exciting things in my young life.  Those days are long gone but thanks to a new animated feature that will throw wrestling superstar Hulk Hogan in the mix with the Mystery, Inc. crew, perhaps fans can relive a bit of the glory days.

Benedict Cumberbatch Is A Man Of Many Celebrity Voices

Celebrities impersonating other celebrities, like most things, usually either crash and burn like the Hindenburg, or as in the case with Benedict Cumberbatch, knock it out of the park. What’s even more impressive about Cumberbatch, is the that in this video, he does multiple impersonations in a 60 second window. (more…)

Because Defense Contractors Gotta Eat – U.S. Gov Wants to Build Helicarriers

Helicarrier_1

Did you read a Marvel Comic, or see The Avengers, and upon glancing at the S.H.I.E.L.D. flying fortress known as a helicarrier think to yourself, “I have got to get me one of these!” Well so did some people at the Pentagon. The notion of a helicarrier is nothing new, after all it combines all the mobile command awesomeness of an aircraft carrier without that icky possibility of getting splashback from the world’s oceans. It’s the best of both worlds! It’s worth noting that this comes from the government themselves, and not one of those silly Change.org petitions like the one that wants the government to dump trillions into building a Death Star. Nope, the government wants helicarriers legit, and they`re currently accepting proposals on how to get the job done. (more…)

That Time Marvel Used Unofficial Fan Art In Their TV Special & The Aftermath

A couple of weeks ago, Marvel aired a special on ABC, Marvel: 75 Years From Pulp To Pop. It was a light-hearted celebration of everything Marvel that included a look at Marvel’s history and a number of the creative talent involved in marvel’s history, as well as looks at Marvel’s Television and Cinematic Universes. The special showcased a lot of Marvel artwork, but also, tucked away in that special was a two second bit of art that wasn’t really Marvel’s to use. (more…)

Sony Might Make An Aunt May Movie… Wait… What?!?!

- 11-11-14Comics, Film, WTF? Posted by Aspry Jones

MAY HERO

A friend of mine goes around being bummed out a lot because his sister sleeps around all the time. I told him to just be cool about it because she is who she is, and everyone has to accept that. A long time ago, I understood that you can’t change people or ask them to be something different than they are. That’s why it doesn’t surprise me in the least that word is going around about the morons at Sony developing an a Spider-Man’ movie spinoff starring Peter Parker’s Aunt May. You just gotta let a clown be a clown, and Sony’s just a bunch of clowns. Now, this comes from a Latino Review Exclusive, so take it with a grain of salt. But it’s being reported everywhere, so I’m thinking it’s real. Sadly real. (more…)

Marvel Vs. Attack On Titan Details Revealed As Universal Studios Plans Giant Statues(?)

MarvelAtt

So, the other day I posted strange news about a partnership between ‘Attack On Titan’ and Marvel Comics. Nobody expected things to get any more normal. It’s a friendship that opens up boundless opportunities, even the most farthest reaching idea about combining the universes on film. For now, we’re going to stick with the upcoming comics crossover with a little extra thrown in. The extra bit involves Universal Studios Japan building a gigantic display starring two Titans locked in fierce combat. Now that I think of it, there’s really no other kind of combat. Okay, first up – let’s talk about where this melding of monsters and man is going to take place. Then, the statues. I know that I wrote that weird, but I’m trying to make simple sense out of the insane.

Did You Know Freddy Kreuger Landed Mark Hamill His Dream ‘Star Wars’ Role

Freddy Krueger – a.k.a. Robert Englund – has been tearing up the interview circuit as of late due to the upcoming 30th anniversary (yes… you hear that right, 30 years!!!) of A Nightmare On Elm Street. Some of his anecdotes have been compelling to say the least, but one that sticks out in our minds is the revelation that he helped Mark Hamill secure his Star Wars gig, playing the role of Luke Skywalker. As it turns out, getting drunk and passing out on Krueger’s couch isn’t necessarily a bad thing. (more…)

Marvel Partners With ‘Attack On Titan’ For Weird And Awesome-sounding Crossover!

- 11-04-14Cartoons, Comics, WTF? Posted by Aspry Jones

 

USE THIS FIRST

Attack On Titan and the Marvel Universe couldn’t be more different from each other. One’s an exceedingly popular anime title that seems to be gaining more steam by the day. The other’s the Marvel Universe, and if you need a breakdown of that, then leave this site immediately. Either way, one couldn’t be more different than the other. Marvel’s superhero vs. supervillain plan is a simple one: one fights the other. Attack On Titan is a bleak Japanese series where humans live in fear behind giant walls as protection against humongous monsters trying to eat them. Exactly what kind of gumbo are they trying to cook up by mixing these two entities together? I don’t know, but it’s gonna be effing badass because both are on one hell of a roll. (more…)
