Nerd News: Awesome X-Men update, a Curiosity discovery, Doc in a Box and more

Vol. 3, Issue 45

Somewhat of a smallish issue this week, friends. I think the Internet is still full of Tryptophan from Thanksgiving ... or perhaps I am.

In movie news:

Here are a few trailers:

Django Unchained

I am excited about this sequel to Darth Vader and Son:

In TV news:

Megan Lara has added to her Doctor Nouveau collection—and she says she's going to work on Nine and Captain Jack Harkness versions!

Presented without comment. (Thanks, TGG!)

Any video in which Joffrey gets bitchslapped by Tyrion is already funny, but this one has an added laugh track, which, surprisingly, makes it even more amusing.

In SCIENCE! and tech news, from The Mister:

I found some interesting things as well:

Cee Lo Green and The Muppets will help you get in the Christmas spirit. (Plus, Kermit says "Hot Lanta," and that's totally ridiculous awesome.)

In gaming news, from TGG:

And then there's this video about Samuel L. Jackson hosting Spike's 10th Annual Video Game Awards (NSFW for language). (Thanks, TGG.)

...

I sense a group cosplay ...

There's a darkness in these illustrations, but I like it.

And finally, Alicia Keys is a huge nerd, y'all, and I love her for it:

    1. I hope you didn't end up having actual nightmares. Also: I told you they were dark! ;)

  2. Okay, Dick in a TARDIS is the most amazing thing I've ever seen on Nerd News. Or anywhere. Ever. It's my new favorite thing ever. I may have to print that and put in on my iMac so I can see it always.
    Thank you.

    1. I really wanted to post it without y'all knowing what it was, because that's half the fun, but I couldn't find an unlabeled video. Glad you enjoyed. :)

  6. Yay for Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan! I am interested in how the movie is going to differ from the comic storyline...
    I am definitely skeptical about Girl Meets World. We will see, I guess?
    Love, love all the science news links, especially the NASA PSAs.
    Those Marvel illustrations are simply amazing!
    For a "small" edition, you sure did pack a lot in there. ;)

    1. The comics have changed so much over the years that I feel like the movies can do pretty much whatever and be OK.

      And thanks! It's funny to look back on the earliest editions of Nerd News—this issue would be HUGE compared to them.
