Nerd News: Avengers 2 release date, Finnick casting, Scully says OMG and more

Vol. 3, Issue 34

Friends, I've had a long week. Case in point: Earlier this week, when I set up the business card option post, I swapped he horizontal and vertical labels. Colt alerted me to this yesterday afternoon, and so I fixed it, but not until after some of you had voted. Thank you so much for voting! Now, would you be so kind as to visit the post again and check your vote? I value your opinions, and I want to make sure I've got the right ones. (And thank you for not making fun of my error!)

Now, onto the good stuff.

In movie news:



Also adorable (Thanks, Rebecca!):


Check out this neat Sandman movie pitch art.


In TV news:

Love these posters. The Firefly one is amazing.


There are still holes in her timeline, but this is a neat video of River Song's life.

Donna is the best.


In webseries news:

From TCC, in comic news:

I found a few items this week, too:

These are great superhero illustrations.


These are super (har!) cool too.


From TGG, in game news:

It's always nice to see gorgeous stars like Penelope Cruz having fun. (Thanks, Colt!)


SCIENCE! And tech/history news:

Forever Harry Potter. (Thanks, Stephen!)


Geeze, Scully. Tone it down a notch, will ya?


I could maybe get behind a spaghetti western-style Star Wars series.


And finally, there's this.



  1. I just imagine someone off screen yelling, "You see, Alan? This is why we can't have nice things!"

  2. avengers 2 in the first week of may!? happy birthday to me... 3 years from now.
    misha collins should have a bigger role in EVERYTHING!
    i plan on having nightmares about the owls "mwahaha" face. thanks for that*.
    the scully video (almost) makes up for the owl and his "mwahahaha" face.
    when my husband asks me why i was so late coming to bed i'm going to say "sorry honey, i was watching alan rickman make tea for 7 minutes" :)

    * =sarcasm font

    1. That is a totally valid reason to come to bed late. ;)

      And sorry about the owl? ;)

  3. Yay for an Avengers date:) Also those Believe poster make me feel all warm and fuzzy.
