Nerd News: Fast & Furious science, Sailor Avengers, Dream Thieves and more

Vol. 4, Issue 20

I'm glad that the Internet decided to slow down a bit this week in honor of Memorial Day—the last few NN posts have been beasts! Let's jump right in.

In TV news:

Here are a couple of promos:

Believe

True Blood

Love the new TNG silhouette line from the Star Trek store. (I pulled images of the cell phone cases, but they have tablet cases, T-shirts, mousepads and mugs with these images on them, too.)

Joffrey is still a total dbag, be he a 90s gangster or a fantasy king.

Strax is surprisingly patient with silly kid questions.

In webseries news:

In movie news:

Here are a couple of trailers/clips:

Man of Steel (There are two more clips at the link.)

Planes

These posters take minimalism to a whole new level. (But it works!)

A lot of the promo for The Wolverine has a super gritty feel. These new illustrations are no exception.

In SCIENCE! and tech news, from the Mister:

I found a few items as well:

This gave me the lulz. (Thanks, Bryan!)


8-bit Iron Man!

In gaming news, from TGG:

I found this trailer, directed by Jon Favreau, for Bungie's new game, Destiny:

The Mister also shared with me this trailer for a cool new game called Evoland, which takes you through the evolution of gaming while you play.

I want to be BFFs with Sailor Hawkeye from this series of Sailor Moon/The Avengers mashup illustrations. (Have I posted these before? I can't remember. #gettingold) (Thanks, Rebecca!)

In comics, books and toy news:

These 1920s versions of Disney villains are super cute. Love the dresses!

And finally, if I hadn't been told that this was a fan video, I would have assumed it was a promo for the 50th Anniversary special.

Is it Nov. 23 yet?
