Nerd News: Expendables 3 synopsis, medival X-Men, Wondy shorts and more

Vol. 4, Issue 32

Although it's not exactly the typical kind of nerdy news I typically provide in this series, the best news this week was the announcement that the boys of 'N Sync were going to reunite at this weekend's MTV Video Music Awards. (Thanks Jackie and Colt!) (I missed seeing them on tour during their heyday, and have been hoping and wishing for a reunion tour for years.) But that news, sadly, turned out to be false.

Or, you know, perhaps Lance is just being a troll ... (A girl can dream, OK?!)

In TV news:

Here's a promo video (full of COULSON-y goodness) for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.:

These Doctor Who minimalist illustrations by The Joyful Fox speak are delightful. (Thanks, Rebecca!)

DC Nation recently featured a series of three Wonder Woman shorts:

J.J. Abrams released this (nightmare-inducing) teaser for a new Bad Robot project this week—and no one knows yet what, exactly, it's teasing. (Thanks, Bryan!)

In movie news:

Here is a clip and a trailer:

Gallery 1988 West in LA is holding The Official Edgar Wright Art Show through Sept. 7. Here's a sampling of the art:

In SCIENCE!, tech and history news, from the Mister:

I found a few items as well:

We already own a poster with a Stormtrooper and a bike on it ... I'm sure Colt would be OK making Star Wars + Bikes a thing in our household.

In comic, book and toy news:

These DC heroine/villain illustrations by Nina Edlund are super cute. (The Wondy reminds me of my adorable Polly Pocket.)

(via)

I think we've seen the Wonder Woman before, but the rest of these Justice cover illustrations are awesome, too.

(via)

Speaking of awesome, these medieval X-Men by Nate Hallinan are dang cool, too. I'd love to see a graphic novel with these characters (à la Marvel 1602).

I'm not sure if this was meant to be funny, but I found it good for a giggle.

In gaming news, from TGG:

Disney Princesses as Capcom characters? Why not! (Also, how fun is it that Nala is included?)

(via)

These Japanese art-inspired Mass Effect illustrations from MyCKs Art Studio are beautiful.

And finally, here's 10 hours of Picard and Riker strutting purposefully. (Thanks, Rebecca.)

  2. The Little Golden Books are hilarious! I'd be totally okay with Ewan McGregor coming back for Obi-wan. Hell, I'd be more than okay; the man can do whatever he wants in my book (we're lovers, he just isn't aware of this fact yet xD).

    I'm super bummed the N'sync news isn't true D,: I'm pretty sure they were my first "concert" ever and it was kind of amazing, haha.

  3. You an Ewan are going to have the cutest babies ever. Invite me over for your Christmas parties one year, please?


    I KNOW. I hope they perform, even if Lance says they aren't. I'm readying my sacrifice of Bieber/One Direction merch now.

  5. Um, you're automatically invited to all of our Christmas parties, summer holidays, and any other shindig that crops up. Our children will be adorable. And we shall ride motorbikes around Scotland and everything shall be wonderful xD I'm not a creeper, I swear.

    I'm hoping they're just trying to throw the fans off >.> I'll basically do whatever it takes, haha.

  6. A Worf TV show, eh? Worf is by far my favorite character in the Trek 'verse but I'm not sure that having him as the center focus of a show would work. Plus, it would probably bring in too much Klingon speechifying about honor. Worf is the only Klingon I like.

  7. Good points! I can see them making him a captain or something, since that's how the Star Trek shows seem to go.
