Nerd News Roundup

Fantastic Four

Matthew Vaughn is joining the Fantastic Four reboot as a producer. Vaughn was part of the duo that brought us X-men: First Class, and how neat would that be if this movie also turned into a period piece set in the Sixties?

Amazing Spider-man 2

Here’s a look at the redesigned costume. Maybe I’m not a big enough nerd, but it looks exactly like every other Spider-man costume to me.


Avengers 2

Joss Whedon promises Death, Death and More Death in the upcoming sequel.

International Film Festival where Whedon revealed the grim theme he has planned for the upcoming sequel The Avengers 2. When a fan asked him for an update on his next directorial effort, the filmmaker replied, “I can’t do any bigger, so I’m trying to do better.” But it was his response to the follow-up question about the film’s philosophy that has us troubled: “Death, Death and more Death!”

It’s most certainly worth noting that the rumored villain for The Avengers 2, the Mad Titan known as Thanos (the purple dude seen in the post-credits sequence of the last Marvel movie), is actually in love with a physical manifestation of Death that actually exists in the Marvel universe, but I still think we can expect that not everyone is going to make it alive out of The Avengers 2.

Since they are apparently resurrecting Agent Coulson for the S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series, maybe the entire movie will consist of the many deaths of Phil Coulson.


Bryan Singer has heard our prayers… well, my prayers and is going to use his time travelling sequel to clean up the mess that X-men 3 left on the proverbial carpet.

 You mean, what you’re politely saying is, “fix s**t.” Is that what you’re saying? That’s what I’m hearing. [Laughing]

There’s going to be a little of that, a few things I can repair.

Are fans going to be pleased with these things you will be repairing?
I think so, I think so, yes.
