Nerd News: Censored Frozen, Fantastic Four casting, Hannibal teaser and more

Vol. 5, Issue 2

Hello, friends! This'll be a somewhat light issue of Nerd News, but seeing as the last one was pretty huge, I think it'll even out. As always, if I've missed something, let me know in the comments or email me!

Oh, and there is no gaming news this week due to TGG being on vacation! But I'm sure he'll be back next issue with plenty of exciting links.

In movie news:

Here are a few trailers:

Once the reboot craze runs its course, maybe Hollywood will just start recutting old movies into different genres.

And finally, this is hilarious. (Why yes, I do have the sense of humor of a 12-year-old boy.)

  1. I am so stoked on the Maleficent film! Pretty curious to see how that plays out. I (like so many of us, I think) have always been fascinated by Maleficent. She is such a neat character.



    And Hannibal. Oh my heavens I am so looking forward to the return of Hannibal. I was really impressed by that one, last year. AND that O'Brien comic! Awesome. I wondered about that off and on. O'Brien is an awesome character and the Transporter Room seemed like such a boring waste of him. (Glad he came into his own on DS9.)

  2. I think a lot of the villains deserve to have their backstories told. It's always interesting to see someone who's supposed to be "pure evil" humanized.


    Even Keiko got more screentime on TNG than O'Brien did, haha!
