Nerd News: Curiosity photos, Ticket-Tooth Philip, WHEDON and more

Vol. 3, Issue 32

Holy crap, you guys. BIG news: Joss Whedon is back for Avengers 2 ... and he'll be working on that Avengers 'verse TV show. SO AWESOME. (Thanks, Mark!)


OK, I'm done fangirling. For the moment.

In other movie news:



A couple of trailers:

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Red Dawn



The style of these posters remind of of a cartoon (or something) from my childhood, but I can't recall which at the moment. (Rocky and Bullwinkle, maybe?)

I've posted some of Harshness's work before, but I found his Etsy site this week and there's just loads of good stuff there.

DC is now selling licensed art prints. While I like some of them, I feel like I've seen way better "unofficial" fan art.

(via)

A whole set of the Lantern Spectrum prints would be sweet, though.

In TV news:

A couple of teasers:

Grimm

Revolution

I like this. (Minimalism+The Doctor=Awesome, always.)

(I might have posted this before. It feels familiar, but I scrolled through my nearly 2,000 Nerd News image files and didn't see it ...)

These illustrations imagine what the Doctors would look like if their Y chromosome got switched with an X. (Although, to be fair, I have no idea what Time Lord DNA is like, so I could be totally off base with that genetic assumption.)

SCIENCE! And tech news:

From TCC, in comic news:

TGG offered up some info on the TMNT annual issue from Kevin Eastman. (I feel like there's going to be a lot of crossover between these two.)

Related to both SCIENCE! and comics, this fan-made Curiosity rover/Doctor Who comic is short, but totally on point. The first page (of three) is below.


From TGG, in gaming news:

And TCC ran across the news that Marvel: War of Heroes, a digital battle card game, has been announced. (See what I mean?)

These Shepard and Tali figures are really really ridiculously good looking. (Thanks, Mark.)

Haha! I love Patrick Stewart. And Simon Pegg. Ryan Lochte, not so much.

I've long been a fan of Annie Leibovitz's Disney Dream Portrait series, and these two new photos are no exception:

In case you missed any along the way, here's a collection of all of the photos.

And finally, I will eventually have a child. And when that eventuality becomes reality, you best believe he or she will have a SUPER nerdy nursery like this one. (Thanks, Shaun!)

I still really, really want that Wampa rug.

  1. I hadn't seen that Funny or Die sketch, but I am pretty sure I'll see it again a few times before the day is over! #PicardLove

  2. Good issue, Chief. I think Doctor #10 is the best looking as a woman, but that's just me.

    I think TCC and I should make it a point to mix up our comic/gaming news as much as possible just to give you a hard time.

    Those posters remind me very much of the art style of a lot of Cartoon Network's toons from the late 90's/early 2000's like Samurai Jack and Dexter's Lab.

    1. Thank you sir. And I wouldn't put it past you and TCC to do that.

  3. HAHAHAHA, oh my god, Female Doctor #10's face! i nearly died laughing.

    Also, I'm really bummed that Javier Bardem isn't going to do The Dark Tower, and even more bummed that they're looking at Russell Crowe. Bah.

    1. The artist really got a lot of each personality in the faces. :)

      And I haven't read enough of the Dark Tower series (only book 1) to have a concrete idea of what Roland really looks like, so I can't say that one would be better than the other.

  4. Awesome round-up. I'm particularly excited about the Avengers show and the TMNT Annual.

    About that Lochness Monster story...you'd think a guy who spent two decades of his life hunting down a high-profile mythical creature would have a video camera on him at all times for just such an occasion. Why is it these people only ever have grainy, out-of-focus photos?

    1. Thank you! And yeah ... Something tells me he's battling a lost cause.

  5. I like the female doctors, but I keep imagining them as a new Time Lady who goes by the name 'The Governess'.

    1. They're so great! Even if I can't really stand Russell Brand, he does make a good Hook.

  8. I'm thinking Dexters Lab with those posters...

    I'm very intrigued about Hugh Laurey in Robocop and don't worry we havent played the new Mass Effect ending either, we got sidetracked by Batman and Darksiders 2 is out soon (woo!!!), so it will just have to wait now, oops

    1. Good call Rhianne. You and Wes are spot-on with that.

      And good! I'm glad I'm not the only one, haha.
