Nerd News Roundup


Firefly

Fans of the TV show and movie will be happy to hear that the series will live on in comic book form. Coulson may live on tonight on TV, but Wash is definitely still pushing up daisies.

As the series begins, Mal and the crew are recouping from their recent strike against the sinister interplanetary government, The Alliance, in which they exposed government agencies as those responsible for the creation of the Reavers — the scourge of the universe. With River Tam in the co-pilot chair and a very pregnant Zoe reeling from the death of her husband, Wash, Mal is finding himself and his ship in greater danger than ever.

For shame PR guy for not shortening universe to ‘verse. An Operative will be by shortly to discuss your failure with you.

World of Warcraft movie

Deadline has the casting news on this picture up, a bunch of names are in various stages of negotiation, including Colin Farrell and Anton Yelchin

I still think it would be a better movie if it were a Spinal Tap style mockumentary about a WoW Guild, but I pretty much hate WoW, so I’m probably not the best person to ask.

Star Trek

No movie news, but here’s a cool image gallery that blends the faces of the Classic Trek and New Trek crews.

Star Wars

No new movie news, but if you’ve got some spare cash under your couch cushions and a very, very, very, very understanding spouse (or no spouse), you can buy yourself a replica of an AT-ST. Sadly, it doesn’t walk and I’m pretty sure the blasters are non-functional, so no Ewok stamping for you.

If I bought this, I'm pretty sure it would be exhibit A in my divorce proceedings.

If I bought this, I’m pretty sure it would be exhibit A in the inevitable divorce proceedings that followed.
