Marvel released the first official plot synopsis for Joss Whedon‘s Avengers: Age of Ultron earlier today. Don’t worry though, there’s not any smoking gun here. Nothing that spoils everything unless you’ve been on an Amish retreat in a remote ice cave in Antartica. It does set up the frame-work in which we can begin to speculate like demons though. Take a look after the jump. (more…)

Unannounced-Captain-America-3-Logo

With the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier on Blu-ray and DVD today, many fans of  Marvel Studios’ Avengers family of films are looking ahead to the future and are curious as to what  will be the focus of Captain America 3, set for a 2016 release. While we were originally promised an announcement at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con of the film’s subtitle, which might have provided an  indication of what the film’s storyline might be, the convention came and went with no clues to Cap’s future. However, the official Twitter page for Captain America  announced yesterday that a big announcement in honor of today’s Winter Soldier release. Could this be the Captain America 3 subtitle? (more…)

Avengers Re-Assemble! Roster Changes In ‘Age Of Ultron?’

- 08-28-14Comics, Film Posted by Aspry Jones

The very spoiler-y folks at Badass Digest seem to have gotten their hands on a script for ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron.’ It concerns a possible movie roster change of the famous superhero group. In the comics, this was something the Avengers did pretty routinely. Makes sense that they’d address it in the films. This is an exciting concept that’s bound to ruffle some feathers. And something this big wasn’t thought up all willy nilly. It’s one of those grand plans Marvel bigwig Kevin Feige spoke of awhile back. Here’s the thing – if this info stays as part of the plan, who on the team stays and who goes? I have some ideas and I’m going to speculate about them. But Badass Digest says there’s one hero who’s a lock. And it’s someone we have yet to see on screen. Let the SPOILERS fly! (more…)

TOY REVIEW: Captain America (Golden Age Version) Sixth Scale Figure by Hot Toys

- 08-17-14Cool Stuff, Featured, reviews Posted by Luke Gallagher

captainamericafeature1

One cannot simply talk about Captain America and not feel compelled to sing the “America, F**k Yeah!” song. So there, I said it. In today’s case, talking about Hot Toys Captain America Golden Age 1/6th Scale Figure, I’d replace “America” with “Hot Toys”. But, that doesn’t quite roll off the tongue in the same way. That, and Hot Toys is a Hong Kong based company… so, umm, yeah. However, they’re products are sold in America and the sentiment of self pride and righteous awesomeness remains the same.

Hot Toys designs and develops highly detailed Sixth Scale collectibles featuring actual likenesses of film based characters for distributors like Sideshow Collectibles. It’s a challenge finding a selection of words that pay tribute to Hot Toys mastery in artistry, as their finesse is unbound. A search on Thesaurus.com for the word “stunning” and every synonym would apply. The same can be said for Sideshow, who too manufactures high end articulated figures (as well as busts, statues, prop replicas and more). In addition to designing and manufacturing their own products, Sideshow distributes unique offerings from notable pop culture and figure companies like Hot Toys. But I digress…

Sideshow Collectibles has been gracious enough to send Nerd Bastards a Hot Toys Captain America Golden Age 1/6th scale figure from the critically acclaimed Marvel film Captain America: The Winter Solider. While my review could be summarized in two words, “F**k Yeah”, to truly appreciate the craftsmanship and value in quality, an up-close examination is necessary. Or, you can just look at the pretty pictures.   (more…)

Captain-America-The-Winter-Soldier-Spoilers

Captain America: The Winter Soldier enjoyed a very successful run at the box office, and for good reason.  The Marvel Studios movie was a very well written espionage flick that just happened to have a superhero or two at the center of the plot. More importantly, the movie was a game changer for the Marvel Cinematic Universe that revealed that absolutely no one could be trusted.  SFX Magazine recently sat with the screenwriters of the hit sequel to find out where the series might go from here.  If they get their wishes, there will be plenty of Marvel fans who will love the next Captain America entry.

Joss Whedon Wraps ‘Age of Ultron’ Like a Gangsta

Marvel is just winning all over the place this week. Fans (and likely the studio heads) of the comic book publisher/movie studio cheered when the ridiculous box office numbers for Guardians of the Galaxy were reported on Monday; they cheered even more uproariously when Warner Bros. flinched with respect to the release date of Batman v. Superman, which was also held by Marvel’s Captain America 3 until yesterday when WB decided to change dates. Still, with all of this excitement, Joss Whedon managed to up the still take it to the next level with this simple tweet: (more…)

Paging Agent Carter: Series Supporting Cast And Big Screen News

- 07-22-14Comics, Film, TV Posted by Aspry Jones

NEW LOGO

Hayley Atwell did a Ghostbusters by coming, seeing and kicking ass. From the minute she first showed up as Agent Carter in Captain America: The First Avenger, she became a favorite for her stoic approach to dealing with b.s. and bad guys. Marvel and Disney then featured her in a one-shot short where her brand of 1940’s butt-kicking espionage left fans wanting more and more. And that’s exactly what we’re gonna get too. In fact, we’re about to get so much Hayley Atwell, half the globe’s geeks just might overdoes on her hot retro violence. Not only does Agent Carter have a new show coming our way via the ABC network, but she’s also coming back to the big screen as early as 2015. You got this far because you’re a nerd. But only real bastards keep clicking! (more…)
