Nerd News: Dinosaurs vs. Aliens, more ME3 DLC, Spider-Man sequels and more

Vol. 3, Issue 28

Last night, San Diego Comic Con 2012 officially began. I'm not there, and I'm rightly a bit bummed about it. If you are there, I hate you a little hope you're having an absolute blast.

In case you want to be bummed right along with me, here are "Eight Probably Awesome Things We're Missing at Comic Con This Year."

One good thing, though—that Firefly reunion you've probably heard about? It'll be televised.

Moving right along, in movie news:

Here are a few trailers/clips:

Dinosaurs vs. Aliens

I like the stained glass quality of these illustrations.

These Return of the King posters from Mondo are fittingly epic.

In TV news:

Oh sweet geeze. (Thanks, Mark!)

You can celebrate TNG's 25th anniversary with these fun posters. (But where the ladies at?)

Here's some news on Marvel NOW!, the new route comics will take post-Avengers vs. X-Men.

SCIENCE! And tech news:

Gorgeous.

From TGG, in video game news:

These following links are definitely video game-related, but not exactly news. Both make some really interesting points on the role of women in video games, however.

And finally, these are some awesome tattoo designs.

If I've missed anything big in this issue, let me know? I've been sick the past week and therefore on the Internet somewhat sporadically. (You can leave a comment, or, as always, email me with any news.)

  1. Definitely the biggest new: Hocus Pocus sequel! I love that movie so much! Even though a sequel is sure to be horrible and cheesey; the original was and that's why it was so great! I hope they can get some known & loved, though not exactly current "A-list", stars for the characters like pretty much the entire cast was. (Which I didn't appreciate as a naive child, but now makes me love the movie even more.)
    And I loved that she used the phrase "Take this with a grain of salt (or perhaps circle of salt)" in her article. Hocus Pocus inside jokes! <3

    1. Love Hocus Pocus! And I agree, I hope it's with a kitchy cast. :)

  2. Another major announcement today was that The Legend of Korra is getting renewed for a second season. Do you watch that?

    1. Yes! Super excited for that. The first season was great.
