Nerd News Roundup


Fantastic Four

Well, this should fill any fans of the comics with confidence.

Author and screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith has done polish screenwriting work on Fox’s reboot of Fantastic Four, which Josh Trank is directing.

Grahame-Smith is the best-selling author behind Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, the latter of which was adapted by Fox last year. The multi-medium maven penned the script for the movie as well as the script for Dark Shadows, Tim Burton’s take on the 1970s vampire soap opera.

Let’s see how fans reacted:

Dr. Doom is not made of metal!!!! Argle bargle!!!

Dr. Doom is not made of metal!!!! Argle bargle!!!

Right. Moving on then, please note that when referring to the movie, it is not Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, it is Greatest American Cinematic Masterpiece both now and forever and we should all probably just stop making movies now because we can never best it: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

Amazing Spider-man 2

Here is Shailene Woodley in the first leaked set photos on the Amazing Spider-man sequel.

shailenewoodley

My only thought is I feel sorry for her because a.) she seems not to have makeup on; b.) while she is a pretty girl, this is what comic nerds see when they think of Mary Jane Watson;

Above: Mary Jane Watson; Not seen: realistic portrayal of 99.9% of women

and c.) anonymous internet nerds are rather vicious sometimes when they’re expectations are not met.

Organic webshooters suuuuuuck!!! Argle bargle!!!

Star Wars

A brief note, reports that Simon Pegg would be involved in the Star Wars franchise are currently untrue.

Boba Fett is overratedl!!!! Argle bargle!!!

Boba Fett is overratedl!!!! Darth Vader shouldn’t be a kid!!! George Lucas raped my childhood!!!!!! Argle bargle!!!

As always news on this movie will change by the hour.

Hercules! Hercules! Hercules!

Though The Greatest American Cinematic Masterpiece both now and forever and we should all probably just stop making movies now because we can never best it: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter holds a special place in my heart, this movie may make me reconsider the title I just gave it this morning.

Brett Ratner. The Rock. Hercules.

Sweet Buddha, man. That sounds all sorts of awesomely bad. Whether or not it will rival the Rock’s own cinematic masterpiece The Scorpion King remains to be seen. But I have confidence in the Ratner.

Now if Ratner would just team up with Shatner, I think that might just topple Greatest American Cinematic Masterpiece both now and forever and we should all probably just stop making movies now because we can never best it: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

X-men 3 suuuuucksl!!!! Argle bargle!!!
