I know we say this all the time, but Hollywood’s lack of originality has seemed to have reached a new low. How, you may ask. By not just trying to get a new movie project going based on a toy, but by trying to get a new movie going based on a toy ripped off an other toy. You may remember the Go-Bots, and the epic battle between the sainted Guardians lead by the appropriately named Leader-1, and the evil Renegades whose boss, Cy-Kill was a robot that – yes – turned into a motorcycle. Then again, you may be too young to remember the 80s, the last time anyone mentioned the term “Go-Bot” without any sense of irony. But remember them or not, the Go-Bots may be soon back on the pop culture radar. (more…)
Nerd Art Dump: A Hanna-Barbera/Indiana Jones Mash-Up, Clint Eastwood as Batman, The Men With No Names and MOAR!
The Interwebz, where nerd art runs wild. In the wrong places you’ll find pics of where Batman keeps the Robin “tryouts” or bootlegs of those exercise vidoes Wonder Woman made in the late eighties. In the right places you can find mind blowing nerd based art.
Welcome to the right place.
We collect it, you enjoy it, and we are all better for it.
ABOVE: Ever wonder what it would have been had Clint Eastwood actually been cast as Batman? Wonder no more! Aged, pissed off, a carrying a case of permanent smoker’s lung. It’s a perfect blend of Bruce Wayne and the “Man with no name”. Definatly not someone you want to meet during a criminal heist. [Geek Tyrant]
Hit the jump for comic book romance novels, The Avengers “What if” and MOAR !
Nerd Art Stock Pile- An Epic 80’s Moment, Batman Beyond CGI, Hanna Barbera’s Justice League and MOAR!
The Interwebz is a great place for nerdy art and the like. A lot of the time it’s crazy things like Wonder Woman dressing on the invisible jet, Skeletor getting ribbed for your pleasure, and other weird shit. There are also a lot of awesome (non soul destroying) things that we see on a daily basis, and we round them up for your viewing pleasure.
ABOVE: Isn’t it nice to see two super heroines getting along with each other, especially when their done incredibly well by deviant artist Ricken? Now if only they would take part in that all girls sleepover over in the watchtower, two words. Epic pillow fight. [Deviantart]
Hit the jump for The Walking Dead, Minimalist Avenger Posters, a shot of Catwoman’s treasure and MOAR!
In what could be called the greatest April fool’s day joke ever, the 1970’s are gonna be making a comeback in the form of a Batman/Scooby-Doo team up. Take a look at your calenders though, it’s still March and Mystery inc. and Gotham’s Dark Knight haven’t teamed up since 1972’s “The Dynamic Scooby-Doo Affair”. Watching Batman and Robin work together with the antics of Shaggy and Scooby must have blown more then a few minds in the decade of peace and love. Strap on your utility belts and get out those Scooby Snacks because it looks like 2011 is the year the band get back together one more time.
It’s 106 miles to Gotham, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of Scooby snacks, it’s dark… and we’re with Batman. Hit it.
On April 1st, 2011, fans of the cowardly dog and the masked hero will have their television set to Batman: The Brave and The Bold for the crossover of the year. As part of the episode ‘Batman’s Strangest Cases’ Batman and every annoying, all-powerful Bat-Mite (Paul Reubens) takes us through some weird alternate realities. The Scooby doo portion is part of a larger scheme, done in the style of early 1970s Hanna-Barbera animation. Jumping alternate realties and only using the best mystery solvers next to Batman himself is pretty weak but it should be worth it in some way. Please use Adam West in the Hanna-Barbera universe, pretty, pretty please.
