We’ve all seen the on set pictures of the new Batmobile for Zack Snyder‘s Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice that surfaced earlier this week. Snyder decided to tweet an official picture of that marvelous vehicle after those others leaked. Then quiet rumors started to buzz around the Internet that one of the Batmobile model cars had been stolen off the lot. Warner Brothers and Snyder haven’t confirmed or denied the theft rumor, but early this morning Snyder did tweet a fantastic photo that touches on the subject. (more…)

Late last night some images of the Batmobile from Zach Snyder‘s Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice started popping up on the Internet. A couple popped up and then were quickly deleted by the user. No word if those were voluntary removals or someone shot out a quick Cease and Desist or they just thought their job might be threatened by the posting of the pictures. We’ve scrapped the bottom of the Internet and found those images and brought them for you all together here! (more…)

Maybe it’s just me, but I only know a handful of people who have adopted to next generation gaming. I know more people who are instead holding off on getting an X-Box One or Playstation 4 until better gaming titles are released. With the Holidays around the corner, there happens to be a slew of big titles coming. Titles that will undoubtedly push a few fence sitters over to fresher gaming pastures.  One of the biggest, most anticipated, and outright siiiiick looking titles – Batman Arkham Knight - was arguably the sole reason to buy a new system before the end of 2014.  Well, unfortunately, those who were ready to throw their money at the nearest Gamestop will have to wait. How long? I don’t think you wanna know. But, hey, there is some good news too! (more…)

Netflix is flexing its financial muscles once again. This time around Netflix has procured the multi-territorial rights to Warner Bros. Gotham even before a the first episode has aired. What else makes this deal special? Usually those rights are worked out on a country by county basis and not packaged together. How much did Netflix shell out per episode? (more…)

Adam-West-Batman-1966

In the same mode as other nerd icon documentaries like To Be Takei and Birth of the Living Dead, we now get Starring Adam West. Now if you’re thinking, “So what? He was the lame Batman from the lame 1960s Batman TV series,” you’ve clearly never been to a con and seen this man pack them in to standing room only capacity. Needless to say, Adam West didn’t always feel that love. There were some pretty lean years between Batman and Family Guy‘s Mayor West. But now, it seems, West is ready to talk about the totality of his career: the good, the Bat, and the ugly.

Whenever Nerd Bastards goes to a con, we don’t just like to highlight the celebrity guests, news items and other things. No! We also like to put the camera on you, the fans. Those of you in costume anyway. So many fans get into an incredible amount of detail with their costumes, fret over the smallest detail and make sacrifices of comfort and mobility, so it’s only right that as we celebrate the culture, we also celebrate those that make the culture possible with their mad nerdiness. On this Thursday of Fan Expo 2014, we found judges, super-people, brains, robots, and something that looks suspiciously like something out of Will Graham’s nightmares. Also, some very impress LEGO sculptures were on display. All that, and MOAR, in this first photo gallery from Toronto’s National Fan Expo! (more…)

Is The DC Cinematic Universe Following a “No Joke” Policy?

- 08-27-14Comics, Film Posted by Rush Urbalejo

There is no doubt that there are plenty of differences between the movies that Marvel continues to pump out and the movies that WB/DC continues to give audiences.  One of the biggest differneces, of course, is the tone of these movies.  While Marvel loves to give fans some laughs with their superhero action, DC prefers to keep things a bit darker, and for the most part any laughs that come from the audience are almost ironic in response to what’s going on in the film itself (“Want to see a magic trick?”).  If you follow the comic books released from each of the publishers, you may even believe you understand why. A new rumor, however, may give us a better answer to why the DC Cinematic Universe seems so depressing. (more…)

‘Gotham’s’ 19-Minute Special: ‘A Legend Reborn’ Is A Behind-The Scenes Feast

- 08-24-14Comics, TV Posted by Aspry Jones

TV’s ‘Gotham’ is taking flight. You can tell that by all the promotion it’s getting. It’s drizzled in so much pomp and circumstance that I’m sold on the show’s flavor from previews alone. I don’t care much about the no-name actors being stirred into this soup and Jada P. Smith isn’t a strong enough presence for me to want in. But the whole pot’s on medium with the steam rising lightly. All the ingredients are there and this gumbo is smelling like something out of Emeril Lagasse’s cookbook. I haven’t tasted a thing, but from the way stuff looks, we’re in for a gourmet experience. Like top chefs with a well-stocked fridge, the preview gives us a powerful “making of” that just clocks in under 20 minutes. We meet the characters, see some choreography, several interviews, everything but the kitchen sink. Today’s special is ‘A Legend Reborn.’ Bon appétit!
