The Hollywood Reporter is sharing that British actress, and all around fanboy favorite Tilda Swinton is in talks to join the cast of Marvel’s Dr. Strange alongside countryman Benedict Cumberbach. Could this be the strange-magic needed to ensure box office and cult-classic success? We here at Nerd Bastards are going out on a limb and saying hell yes. Lets review the facts, shall we?   (more…)


I love a good zombie story.  The emphasis in that sentence, however, is definitely the word GOOD. There are – pardon my very scientific term here – a crap-ton of movies, books, and comics that all revolve around reanimated monsters of one form or another; some are smart, some talk, some run, and some just don’t make any damn sense.  I guess what I’m saying is: the genre feels very near to its tipping point (some would argue it’s already been reached).  However, TV is one of the truly under-explored vistas for the living dead, and the folks behind AMC’s mega-smash The Walking Dead are hoping to double-down and hit big twice with the show’s spin-off, Fear the Walking Dead, coming later this summer to a small screen near you.

The main building, as you can see in the picture above is a homage to the Starship Enterprise. Dejian loved Star Trek so much that before construction began he sought and received permission from CBS for the official rights for the design. (more…)


Word is making the Internet rounds today that Fox is gearing up to give Alan Moore‘s League of Extraordinary Gentlemen another go at the big screen. I wouldn’t get any hopes up that Moore might pitch in on the script, he’s more likely to set the script on fire with his mind powers. What we do know is that Fox has brought on Ira Napoliello and Matt Reilly to oversee the remake. (more…)


Truth time: the world as we know it has been heinously below its quota of ALL BRUCE CAMPBELL ALL THE TIME for a while now.  Fortunately, the screwheads in charge of Hollywood seem to be finally wizening up, as the beyond-enticing TV series “Ash vs. the Evil Dead” is ramping up production as we speak – er, type and read.  Earlier this week, we seem to have gotten the first bit of behind-the-scenes juiciness directly from The Man Himself, via his Twitter feed.  (more…)
