They say that it’s going to be release in March 2015, they say that production is scheduled to begin this coming June, but on this last day of April in 2013, we still don’t have even one cast member nailed down for Josh Trank‘s re-staging of the Fantastic Four. Well maybe that’s changing. Deadline is reporting that Allison Williams, co-star of the HBO Girls and daughter of NBC anchor and Daily Show punchline Brian Williams, is on the short list for a part in the film “I’ve heard Williams is also on the short for the Fantastic Four reboot, which is in the very early talking stage,” the site states.

By process of elimination, we can infer that Williams is most likely up for the role of Sue Storm, The Invisible Woman. The part was played by Jessica Alba in 2005’s Fantastic Four and its 2007 sequel Rise of the Silver Surfer, so automatically the mere rumor of Williams playing the part is an improvement. If casting news is leaking, then maybe we should expect some hard casting news soon.

Anyway, what do you Bastards think? Would Williams make a good Invisible Woman, or do you have different casting ideas?

Yet another year is coming to a close.  This means we’ve got yet another Top [insert number here] list of [insert year here].  In this case, it’s the American Film Institute‘s awards for the top 10 motion pictures and the top 10 television programs of 2012.

The list includes many of the expected film titles like The Dark Knight Rises and Les Miserables.  Same goes for the TV series; we’ve got Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Modern Family and The Walking Dead to drop some big names.  Fun fact for y’all: Mad Men is now the most recognized AFI Awards TV honoree in history after 5 straight years on that list.  I guess everybody loves themselves some Hamm, eh?  Eh?

Anyway.  Jump the chasm for the full list! (more…)

The Worst Superpower Ever Song – Doubleclicks

Nerdbastards let you in on sister duo, The Doubleclicks a couple of months ago. They have kept up the song a week challenge they set for themselves and last week put out this little number that got me thinking. What is the “Worst Superpower” ever? The tune is done solo this time, Aubry is off doing something of Earth shattering importance, I think she developed super powers and Angela is just jealous, thus the song.

Well what do you think? I found myself humming and making up new lyrics for this song most of the afternoon. What is the worst super power you can have?
