Nerd News: Batman short, Hogwarts online classes, S.H.I.E.L.D. art and more

Vol. 5, Issue 14

Hey, kids! So the Mister and I have finally caught up on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and, well, it’s pretty damn good. I adore how Marvel’s tied the movies and the show into each other so well. I’m still meh oh Skye and Ward—even with recent developments—and Ming Na is still THE WORST, but the rest of the characters are great and the plots are interesting. I’m glad we didn’t give up completely!

In movie news this week:

Here are some trailers and clips:

Craig Drake's got a great sense of style. I particularly enjoy the Han and Lando Miami Vice-ish illustration.

Florent Belmonte has a (literally) splashy style, too. I dig.

  1. Deadpool: The Movie needs to happen. It has needed to happen for a very, very long time. I am so behind that. Also? Benedict Colourbatch. I might need to order that. What a thing of beauty.


    (And! Agents of SHIELD. Pretty glad I kept watching, too. It was touch and go for a bit, but I love me some Marvel and Joss Whedon, so I stayed the course. And yes, Skye and Ward. Meh. I am still excited about Acker joining up, though.)

  2. I feel like I need a new coloring book...

  3. Would you be on board with Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool? I love Ryan ... but he seems to be bad news for superhero movies.

  4. Don't get me wrong, Mrs. Doubtfire makes me all nostalgic for my 90's childhood. . .but really? A sequel 21 years later? WHY.
    Florent Belmonte art is amazing. As is that coloring book.

  5. Hollywood. Apparently, there are only so many new ideas. :P

  6. I would be. You're right, though. He is kind of awful when it comes to superhero movies. I really loved him in the Wade Wilson role, before they completely wrecked Deadpool, in XO: Wolverine.

  7. He's PERFECT for the sarcastic, snarky Wade Wilson. That's the kind of superhero role he needs, not the goody two shoes kind.

  8. Yes. Like Hannibal King. Yes. Good grief that man is good looking. It should probably be a crime. ESPECIALLY when he's that good at playing the "douchey"/snide role, because that's my Kryptonite. (I kid. Mostly. I only like fake-douche. Not actual assholes. Just...wit and, yes, snark. Yes.)
