Nerd News Roundup

Spiderman 3-2 (1 Blastoff!)

The previous report about Sarah Gadon playing Mary Jane in the sequel to the sequel to the reboot of Spider-man was incorrect.

So let’s all engage in more rumor mongering. Black Cat? Betty Brant? Silver Sable?


Confirming internet speculation, William Fichtner is indeed playing Shredder in the Michael Bay produced reboot/remake/abomination of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

I like the choice, and if this were 1988, younger me would totally buy a ticket to this. But it’s not. And I’ve seen Pearl Harbor. And Transformers.

How to Train Your Dragon 2

Some information is out about the sequel to the hit Dreamworks movie.

The thrilling second chapter of the epic How To Train Your Dragon trilogy brings back the fantastical world of Hiccup and Toothless five years later. While Astrid, Snoutlout and the rest of the gang are challenging each other to dragon races (the island’s new favorite contact sport), the now-inseparable pair journey through the skies, charting unmapped territories and exploring new worlds. When one of their adventures leads to the discovery of a secret ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace.


I like that they’re letting the characters grow up. Too often in animation, there seems to be a drive to try and maintain the status quo. I’m glad they’re letting their characters grow.

Are you all excited about another Alice in Wonderland production? Anyone? Anyone?

Yeah… me too. Here you go anyway:
