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 nerdybits@nerdbastards.com.

ABOVE:   This 1:4 scale He-Man sculpture was built by scratch by DeviantARTist EdgePang (aka EJ Pang). It brings a whole other level of brutality to the most powerful man in the universe. If a new He-man movie gets made, the studio needs to take design notes from Mr. Pang. [Geekologie]

ABOVE: You, too, can look like a Norse god with your very own Thor welding helmet. This solar-powered helmet is very fashionable, and will go with everything from your suit of armor, to your brand-new cape. Every time you strike what ever piece of garbage you’re trying to fashion into sculpture you’ll be able to fantasize about having control over thunder. [ObivousWinner]

I know a lot of people are feeling overwhelmed due to the sheer amount of The Dark Knight Rises spoilers flooding the interwebz. I’m exhilirated! Besides, it’s been proven spoilers don’t affect your enjoyment of something. And I’m still theorizing we’re only being shown the tip of the iceberg with all these sneaks and peaks. Christopher Nolan still has lots of surprises in store.

To spare those sick and tired of all the Bat-spoilers, click the jump.

After the reveal of the hotly anticipated Catwoman costume, which sadly was a bit disappointing, we can now share footage of Catwoman in action. Well, footage of her stunt double in action, as in the action of crashing into an IMAX camera! Eek! Hopefully Christian Bale didn’t bitch her out, he can be a little testy on set, or so I’ve heard.

This video comes from TMZ and shows Catwoman on the Batpod, cruisin’ down the steps of city hall as revealed in set pics last week. As you can tell when you watch the clip it does appear Anne Hathaway‘s stunt double crashes into a camera. You can even see shrapnel!

Sources close to production tell us both the camera and the cameraman were not injured during the incident — but if you look closely, you can SEE camera shrapnel … and fixing those things ain’t cheap!

A rep for Warner Bros. had no comment.

Whoops. Check it out below.

I’m sure it’ll look more awesome and climactic when it’s edited into the picture. But what do you think about the talk people just aren’t as impressed with what’s been leaked about The Dark Knight Rises thus far?
