Nerd News Roundup

Tomb Raider

Former Buffy the Vampire Slayer writer and later seasons showrunner Marti Noxon will be writing the script for the Tomb Raider movie reboot.

How you feel about this news will largely depend on how you feel about the later seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Noxon’s other films, the remake of “Fright Night” and “I am Number Four”, so you know…


Pretty much this.


Not letting the death of all of the aforementioned 300 ‘protagonists (?)’ of the first movie stop them from trying to make more money off of an intellectual property, the studio has put together a sequel.

Yeah, so, it looks like another 2 hours of more shirtless, oiled up, sweaty men swinging swords at one another. Plus Eva Green. To make some guys who are feeling a bit funny about buying a ticket to see 2 hours of shirtless, oiled up, sweaty men swinging their swords around reaffirm their heterosexuality.

Football. Boxing. Gladiator movies.


Captain America

Slightly more interesting set pics than yesterday’s in which Cap gets to kiss a girl.

Now given Cap wearing glasses and the girl in question wearing a hoodie, this is probably one of the ol’ “Let’s make out so the people chasing us think we’re just a random couple in love” gambit, but hey, it beats Falcon’s backpack.
