The trailer for NBC‘s new DC non-super-powered-super-hero series Powerless has hit the Internet. Probably a good idea to check it out quick as it is likely to be pulled down as soon as NBC’s lawyers get the call, or maybe after the pilot airs, you be the judge. Starring Vanessa Hudgens, the series focuses on an insurance company that handles many of the claims after those epic and not so epic superhero battles. (more…)
DC‘s latest foray into television, Powerless, is focusing on the other side of super powers. Those that don’t have any, but have to live in a world of heroes and villains and must deal with the aftermath of all those battles and damage. Ben Queen‘s (A to Z) creation Powerless, a comedic look at the fallout from all those superheroes and villains breaking things and just leaving the scene. Someone has to pay to repair or replace all those broken things not to mention all those people’s hospital bills. Airing on NBC sometime in 2016 or 2017, DC has just released some first looks at the new series. (more…)
Vanessa Hudgens is no newcomer to super-hero themed roles (she appeared in Sucker Punch- directed by Man of Steel, Watchmen and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder, and Robert Rodriguez’s Machete Kills). NBC’s Powerless will provide her with her first foray into being a bad-ass on the small screen. The half-hour comedy series is based on the world of DC comics, but with a twist. It’s set at an insurance company, where the “powerless” office workers cater to those that have damaged or destroyed property due to superhero battles. (more…)
Warner Bros. Pictures has released a new banner for Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch. opening in theaters and IMAX on March 25th. This movie just keeps looking better and better. I think this banner and the character portraits after the jump would look great in a smaller format framed together. The retro future look that this film has shown us so far is fantastic. I just hope the finished piece is greater than the fragmented parts we have seen so far.
I am hoping the fight scenes of Sucker Punch continue in Snyder’s style used in 300 and Watchmen. That slowed motion minute long shot from 300 of King Leonidas walking through his enemies, taking one out after the other. That scene sang to my nerdbastard heart. The film stars Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens, Abbie Cornish, Jamie Chung, Jena Malone, Carla Gugino, Jon Hamm, Oscar Isaac and Scott Glenn. Quite the lineup, eye candy all around.
Which of these ladies do you think will steal this movie? Which will stand out?

So there have been quite a few fingers pointing to some new superheroines. And no, addicts, not like genetically altered heroin, female superheroes. But it’s just as good right?..
It seems that the gorgeous Scarlett Johansson’s newest character, Natasha Romanoff a.k.a Black Widow, might have future cinematic value. Already appearing in Iron Man 2, as well as holding a contract to appear alongside fellow superheroes in The Avnegers, Black Widow may very well have a big screen movie spin-off. When asked, at the Iron Man 2 press conference, if Black Widow would be getting her own big screen movie spin-off: Kevin Feige, Marvel Studios president had this to say.
“Definitely possible,” said Feige. “Yes, absolutely.”
This is pretty exciting for anyone who wants to see Ms. Johansson in tight black clothing.. BUT she is also a very talented actress, and, I’m quite sure, more than equipped for this role.
Speaking of being fit for a role, or lack there of, Vanessa Hudgens is being looked at to play Spider-Girl. She is very attractive, like alot, but I don’t think she has what is needed to fulfill this role. Although Marvel plans to bring adaptations of their “third-tier” characters to the big screen, with smaller budgets of $20-40 million, and:
“The idea is for this to be a fun, comedic movie and Vanessa is perfect for the title role,”
-An unnamed movie insider
I don’t see her doing much better than Drake Bell in Super-hero Movie.. She’s athletic and good at dancing, but I’m no dance critic, at least not anymore.. But as far as acting and having that toughness she falls short.. But she is efficient at putting nude pictures up on the internet and that’s why America will love and support her. *salutes American flag as eagles fly in synchronization in background* Enjoy!

You, dear readers, are crazy. No, seriously. You search for batshit-insane things and somehow decide that heading to Nerdbastards instead a poop-porn site is the best course of action. I have a dirty mind, but goodness, you guys frighten me. (more…)
