It's been a good week for us Loki Marvel fans, what with the Iron Man 3 premiere last night and the addition of more mutants to X-Men: Days of Future Past, which is turning into a Marvel film version of Injustice: Gods Among Us.* There were some other things that happened as well; I suppose you'll just have to read on to find out what.

In movie news:

Here are a bunch of trailers:

Much Ado About Nothing

Now You See Me (This is the first I remember of hearing of this movie, but it looks super cool!)

Ratchet and Clank


(via)

R.I.P.D.

Star Trek Into Darkness

As an FYI: There comes a time at which I stop watching trailers for movies in order to save at least a little something for the actual thing. I hit this point with STID and Iron Man 3 like a month ago. But I still like to post them for those of you who like to watch.

Thor: The Dark World (!!!)

The Wolverine

If you attend an Iron Man 3 IMAX midnight, you'll have a chance to get this awesome poster, produced in part by Mondo.


These are the other illustrations by the artist (Jock) that didn't make the final cut.

Olly Moss (a favorite artist of mine) created a set of Thor: The Dark World posters was a wrap gift for the cast and crew. I posted a glimpse at one of them previously, but here are all three.

In TV news:

Here's a promo for SyFy's upcoming show, Helix:

Guuuyyyyyyssssss.

This picture causes me all sorts of feels about the Doctor Who anniversary special.

The Game of Thrones theme can seemingly be played on just about anything.

A tribute to J.J. Abrams/Bad Robot is opening at Gallery1988 in L.A. this weekend. The art looks pretty spectacular.

In gaming news, from TGG:

I found a tidbit: You can bring the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles into Skyrim thanks to fan mods.

TGG also sent me this awesome Archer/Mass Effect mashup video; it's the first of three. (NSFW for language, natch.)



In SCIENCE! and tech news, from The Mister:

I found a few items as well:

I've posted a few of Tim Shumate's tattooed Disney Princess series before, but here are some new ones.

In comics/book news:

How cute are these Avengers chibis?

(via)

I dig this Superman/Lois Lane version of Klimt's The Kiss.

(via)

This Haunted Mansion-style Batman art is pretty rad, too.

And finally, here's a pretty epic poster to go along with the epic Patton Oswalt Parks and Rec filibuster I posted last week.

*If you haven't been following along with recent video game news, 1. Shame on you, and 2. Injustice: Gods Among Us basically features every DC character ever.

**Hahahahaha. Good joke, me.

  1. "The CW—home of TGG's favorite TV show, Vampire High..."


    Oh ha ha ha. Very funny, Chief. Although, to be honest, I am looking a little bit forward to tonight's episode. It's the backdoor pilot for the planned series The Originals and focuses on the Original Family who do lots of actual vampire things like killing people and being bad ass. Except Rebecca. She kind of grates on my nerves.


    And how did I miss the TMNT movie title news AND that TMNT Skyrim mod? Moving has really thrown off my TMNT news gathering.

  2. patrick stewart looks amazing- even when wearing a hockey jersey. what a jerk.

    seriously vanilla ice? if nothing else this was good for a much needed laugh.

    how is it that a pic of 2 pairs of shoes can make us so damn giddy? we don't even know that matt and david are wearing them! but still- feels!!!

    i'm really excited about midnight iron man- the mondo poster just added to it. we looked up tickets the other night but it loos like they aren't on sale yet- "/

    did you see the plushie bad robot at the gallery opening? i want one sooo much!!


    i would TOTALLY watch patton's version of star wars.

  3. THE AVENGERS CHIBIS! RED2?!?! So many things in this to get pumped about. So many things.

  4. I can't wait to see RED 2. I love Helen Mirren, and her playing a badass is one of my most favorite things to watch.

  5. Patrick Stewart should be the scifi community's answer to Chuck Norris. Make it happen, Rebecca.


    That's why I included that bit about Vanilla Ice. Sometimes I throw random stuff in just because it amuses me, even if it doesn't really fit the mold of "nerd news".


    I hope the Iron Man Mondo poster is actually good quality. I was assuming that it would be less hand screenprinted and more generic movie poster due to it being mass produced, but I hope I'm wrong.

  6. So ... what did you think about The Originals? I've heard a of a few people that are thinking of following that show and giving up on regular Vampire High. Also, what will you call the new show? Vampire Retirement Home? (I tried ...)


    I'll chalk your being off your TMNT game to your recent house move, but don't make it a habit, TGG. (Stern!Boss is stern.)

  7. I could totally get on board with a Vampire High: The College Years with Matt as the vice principal.
