Nerd News: Avengers art, Doctor Who Christmas special, The Pirates! Band of Misfits and more

Vol. 2, Issue 45

Happy Thanksgiving, friends! Or, happy Thursday to those of you not in the states. If you haven't already finished cooking (and eating) here are some great ideas for fantasy and sci-fi-inspired holiday food.

In TV news:
A couple of previews:

The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe (plus Matt Smith stripping! ... You know, for those of you who like that sort of thing.)


Game of Thrones

This story is adorable. (Read the entire thing at the link underneath.)

I would like to post (and have) every single poster from the Modern Styleographer Etsy account.

While it's appropriate that Pocahontas is Sagittarius, I would have preferred Belle (because she's my fav).

Can you name all of these faces? (Thanks, Shaun!)

In movie news:
A couple of trailers and a clip:

The Pirates! Band of Misfits (based on an awesome book series by Gideon Defoe)

Mission: Impossible-Ghost Protocol

New Avengers promo art ... the Hulk makes me laugh.

I am so in love with this guy's art. (I posted his John McClaine holiday art last year.)

Also super cute.

Good mashup.

And finally, here's a highlight reel from Aliens on Ice! a fantastic re-imagining of a classic (starring Shaun as a Xenomorph) that we saw last weekend. Seriously epic.

  1. Nerd News is one of the few (if not only) blogs that Hubby will read with me. We had fun trying to name all the Pop culture faces in that pic!

  3. I was so excited when you linked to the new Muppet show. But after reading the article, I'm not excited anymore. My hub and I took our kids (aged 16 and 10) to see the new Muppet movie, and we all loved it. They should do a new special at least. I know we would love to watch it.

  4. I'm sorry! I should have been more clear. It could be a whole lot better, I agree. But I'm glad you all enjoyed the movie!
