Leaked Poster Reveals ‘Batman versus Superman’ Title

- 04-01-14Comics, Film Posted by Team Bastard

With CinemaCon officially wrapped up there seems to be a few dangling threads. Late last week, twitter was abuzz with the possibility that there might be a few reveals trickling out of Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel sequel; most notably the big reveal on Ben Affleck‘s Batsuit in celebration of DC’s launch of Batman’s 75th anniversary celebration. Those fires were kicked up a notch when Warner CEO Kevin Tsujihara told the New York Times that announcements (note the plural) on a unified DC cinematic universe were imminent.

Well, the weekend has come and gone, and so far we haven’t see any sign of those announcements (save for those Green Lantern rumblings.) But, that might not be entirely true. The folks over at SpoilerShoot.com have posted a handful of pictures late last night from what was reported to be the abandoned launch for DC’s foray into the joined comic book universe market.  (more…)

- 03-08-14Nerd Culture, TV Posted by Adam A. Donaldson


The first thing that occurs to you is that Allison Mack looks the same. It’s been nearly three years since the end of Smallville, and the actress best know to millions of fans as the first and only Chloe Sullivan of the Superman multiverse is still every inch the perky blonde quipster that had Clark Kent’s back for 10 years of the show. For her appearance at Toronto ComiCon, a first for the actress I believe, the fans had about a decade’s worth of queries about life in Smallville. (more…)

- 03-04-14Comics, Film Posted by Brent Cook

Man of Steel director Zack Snyder

Zack Snyder- who recently sat down with Hero Complex to discuss a variety of Batman Vs. Superman topics, such as fan reaction to casting and when shooting will begin- gave something of an explanation of why we are all so confused over the news coming out of the pre-production. “What explanation could he have for Ben Affleck as Batman, or Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor?!” I hear you scream at your computer screen in a violent fit of rage. Well, because the Man of Steel sequel plans of “explode” the universes that we know and love, and create something new entirely. (more…)

Most shows make you wait decades for a lost episode (suck it, Doctor Who!) The BastardCast plays by their own rules and releases one mere days after it was thought kidnapped by the forces of evil (faulty Toshiba). Really, it’s a long story involving hard drives and ninjas so we won’t bore you with all the exciting details (there was a car chase! Jason got shot in the knee!)

Joining Jeremy and Jason on this unearthed artifact is long time friend of people he’s known for a long time, Chris Cummins for a rousing hour of fart jokes, geekery and, nerd news from 8 days ago… because all of this stuff STILL MATTERS! (more…)

How Much Influence Will ‘The Dark Knight Returns’ Have on ‘Batman Vs. Superman’?

- 02-10-14Comics, Film Posted by Brent Cook


When they first announced the film, before all of these crazy rumors and even crazier castings, the Man of Steel sequel was teased by a classic monologue from The Dark Knight Returns. Instantly, fans ran wild with speculation on just why was this line in particular was chosen from Batman’s many encounters with Superman, and what this would mean for the movie. It’s been more distant from our minds as of late, as we’re all still in the wake of Jesse Eisenberg being announced as Lex Luthor, but Zack Snyder has finally given us some insight on just what relation TDKR will have to Batman Vs. Superman. (more…)

- 02-05-14Featured, Nerd Culture Posted by Team Bastard


The BastardCast, a podcast (how original). A program barely alive (that’s harsh). Gentlemen (and woman named Karen. Hi Karen), we can rebuild it. We have the technology (microphone, headset, glass of Scotch, and a growing collection of robot sidekicks) we have the capability to build the world’s first bionic podcast (more or less). The BastardCast will be that podcast (tada). Better than it was before (is that really a challenge?). Better, stronger, faster (Kanye?). On the show this time, Jeremy, Jason, and the ghost of the American dream (TOPICAL!) plunder forth to discuss… (more…)
