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. Monday through Friday we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks. You can submit items to Nerdy Bits by emailing us at email@example.com.
Above: We feature a lot of great cosplay here and elsewhere on Nerd Bastards, but rarely do you get the chance to show off so much great cosplay in one place. This group of Batman heroes and villains is almost unparalleled. No one’s slacking here. For more awesome shots, courtesy of Tony Quan, check out Fashionably Geek.
With all of the comic book movie excitement going on right now, Marvel Studios is gearing up for Thor 2 and another trip for us back to Asgard. They’re currently in talks with Mads Mikkelsen (Casino Royale, Valhalla Rising) about taking on the role of some unnamed villain in the upcoming film. He’s got the right look about him, that’s for sure.
While we have no idea who he would be playing if he takes on the role, we do know that Tom Heddleston will reprise his role as the demi-god’s brother, Loki.
The sequel will be directed by Alan Taylor, who was the man behind Game of Thrones, so that’s promising. We also have Don Payne and Robert Rodat working on the screenplay. Filming starts later this summer (so a decision will have to be made soon!) and the release date is currently set for November 2013.
A news and entertainment blog for nerd pop culture. We are vulgar, debaucherous, and funny bastards that pilfer the internet (or interwebz, if you like) for the news you need so that you don't have to. You'll laugh, you'll cry and you'll often shake your fist in an angry fury but your time here is worth the price of admission (which is free for those of you not paying attention)
