Nerd News: Avengers deleted scenes, play Terry's muscles, Pond Life and more

 Vol. 3, Issue 35

Have you been watching Pond Life, the series of (too) short minisodes of Doctor Who featuring the Ponds while they're not traveling with Eleven? You should be. They are adorable.

The first is below, and I'll link to parts 2, 3 and 4 under the video. (The fifth should be released Friday.)

Here are part 2, part 3 and part 4. The third is definitely my favorite so far. (Man, do I love Oods.)

In other TV news:

Here's a new teaser for the series 7 premiere episode of Doctor Who:

And one for the new season of Castle:


(via)

And one for the new series Star Wars: Detours, which looks ... kind of awful. (Thanks, TGG?)



These "honest" Game of Thrones mottos are funny.

And you know me and minimalism ... (Thanks, Erica!)

In movie news:
  • Two new deleted scenes from The Avengers have been released. (Peep them below.) While I enjoy the Steve one—it makes me want to give the poor guy a hug—the alternate opening (Thanks, Colt!) makes me crinkle my nose. And dislike Maria Hill a whole lot.






A few trailers/clips:

Captain Planet

LOKI'd! That's totally fake. On to the real trailers:

The Dark Knight Returns (Thanks, TCC.)

Django Unchained


(via)

Dredd 3D


(via)

Resident Evil 5

I find myself thinking in terms of cosplay a lot these days. These would be awesome to do.

Love it.

Also, Mr. Potato Head as Bruce Willis? Inspired.

In SCIENCE! and tech news:

From TGG, in game news:

I also ran across this: Star Wars 1313 art adds a touch of Blade Runner to make awesome. (Yes, the grammar in that title is awkward.)

I might like Pokemon a bit more if the creatures looked like this instead.

From TCC, this week's comic news:

I would like one of each of these Marvel NOW! variant covers by Skottie Young, preferably poster-sized.

(via)

These 80s X-girls are also super cute.

(via)

This is a lovely Wondy, but the star in her nether regions is a bit unnecessarily eye-catching.

Let's pause a moment to view this very important commercial:


(via)

This cake is spectacular. (Thanks, Shaun!)

(via)

0:26 is what really makes this parody video for me. I hope Lucas sees this and adds it in to his future (inevitable) revisions of Star Wars.


(via)

Aw, cute.

(via)

What's with rainy Avengers art this week?

(via)

Also? More babies.

And finally, this is AMAZING.(Thanks, Ben!)
