Nerd News: Oct 25 – 31

Happy Halloween. Here’s some of the stories making the rounds this week.

Even more Comic Movie News:

It seems like we can’t go a week without getting some more news on comic book films. This past week we got a clearer look at Marvel’s next batch of feature films. Phase 3 will be kicked off by Ant-Man later in 2015 followed by Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther (staring Chadwick Boseman as the titular character) Avengers: Infinity War Part One, Inhumans and Avengers: Infinity War Part Two. The one that stands out to me is the future adaptation of Civil War, the overrated Mark Millar story, which will pit Cap against Tony Stark. While Spider-man isn’t apart of the Marvel Film Universe it can easily worked around. So who has the better film plan; DC or Marvel? I really don’t care. Just get ready to give Disney and Warner Bros. your money.

More Avengers Footage:

While we got to see the trailer last week due to a leak, now a slightly longer version of the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer has hit the net. This time the clip shows the Avengers having a party of some sort with some of the team trying to pick up Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir. The rest is the same trailer from before. Avengers: Age of Ultron is be in theatre’s in May of next year.

Southie Batman on bats:

So in other comic film news, it appears that Warner Bros. is looking to help save the bat population. The production team took time to work on a charity to help save the bat population. Bats, much like bees, are important our lives. Feel free to check it out and help a bat or two.

A Robot’s new skin:

More information on the upcoming Terminator: Genisys is coming to light. Both a few production stills have hit the net as well as more information about what the film will be about. The cooler part of the remake series will see a young Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) being protected by an older T-800 played by Arnold Schwarzenegger himself. The reboot will land in theatres (completely naked) theatre’s in July of next year.

Netflix will buy ANYTHING:

So Netflix has picked up another new series, but it isn’t like their past successful titles. The new show will be a modern version of Richie Rich. The show will be produced by Dreamworks’ AwesomenessTV wing and will be a 30 minute live action comedy and will have a 21 episode order. Look for the series later in 2015.

Other Stuff:

The seventh Fast and Furious film has a name, it’s now creatively called Furious 7 which sounds like an modern updated version of the Magnificent Seven…which was a remake of the 7 Samurai…never mind. The WWE had a share holders meeting and the main topic of discussion was the failing WWE Network. In short the news isn’t great, but the guys at Live Audio Wrestling have a much better break down.
