Nerd News Roundup


Included in the just released Marvel cinematic universe phase 1 ultimate collector’s set for those of you who already own the movies, but want to spend another $200 on a cosmic cube replica that won’t grant you unlimited power, there was a preview of phase 2 that included some production art pieces for their phase 2, including a pic of Captain America fighting the Winter Soldier and quite a few pieces about the Guardians of the Galaxy.


As much crap as I give the movie because it has a talking raccoon, an Ent, and someone called Drax the Destroyer, this picture kind of gives me hope that the whole thing will feel more like an old sci-fi serial, sort of like Star Wars, and less like a disaster that you’d expect a movie containing an Ent, a talking raccoon, and Drax the Destroyer to be.

Captain America 2

Robert Redford had previously signed up for an unspecified role. It’s now specified. He will be playing the head of S.H.I.E.L.D.  which presumably were one of those weird shadowy talking heads in the Avengers that tried to nuke Manhattan.

“Well, the head of S.H.I.E.L.D. The head of S.H.I.E.L.D…. The Captain America thing is just a very simple thing,” he continued. “I wanted to do something different. I wanted to do something just to be different. Something bold, different. And that felt like a good thing to do. That was it, nothing more to it than that. Well, it’s bold in terms of expectations, I guess. “


This movie continues to exist.

That right there almost negates everything I said in my last post and makes me believe that eternal hellfire does exist and that their HBO (Hell’s Box Office) will screen nothing but Michael Bay and Uwe Boll movie marathons.

Anyway, Will Arnet has joined the cast in a ‘secret’ role.

Seriously, don’t be tempted by this. Save your $20 and just wait for the new Arrested Development shows on Netflix.

Finding Nemo

So there’s a sequel to this now too. It’s called Finding Dory.

I personally would have gone with Finding Nemo 2: Ne’Mo’ Money so I Can Buy Myself a Mountain of Cocaine Like Scarface.

But that’s just me.
