Episode 30 – Prophet of Doom

On this episode of Nerd & Tie, we webcast to a live audience for the first time! We also talked about Supergirl coming to CBS, a Teen Titans TV show on TNT, Obi-Wan Kenobi getting his own flick, Deadpool FINALLY getting his own movie, Agent Carter showing up in Agents of SHIELD, Chris Evan’s future as Captain America, Guardians of the Galaxy appearing in Avengers 3, and a Firefly film that amazingly doesn’t suck.

Seriously, you should watch it.

It’s pretty awesome.

Also we talk about the “Ender’s Game” movie from a while back at the beginning. Because Trae made the mistake of watching it.

“Deadpool” Film ACTUALLY HAPPENING!

Deadpool is a remarkably popular character in Marvel comics, yet beyond his appearance in the so-awful-it-was-largely-retconned-away Wolverine Origins film, he’s somehow managed to avoid the box office. Fans may finally rejoice though, as Variety is reporting that that a Deadpool movie is now officially happening.

How official? Fox has given it a release date of February 12, 2016. That’s pretty darned official.

Tim Miller is slotted to direct, with Lauren Shuler Donner and Kevin Feige producing. Right now there is no word as to whether or not Ryan Reynolds will reprise the role, but that’s definitely the fan favorite choice at the moment.

It’s kind of amazing.

Is this a leaked photo of Doctor Doom from the new “Fantastic Four” movie?

So over the last couple of days a pair of images have been floating around the vast interwebs which purportedly show us what Doctor Doom is going to look like in the upcoming reboot of the Fantastic Four. Well, at least what he’s going to look like in one scene (you can’t discount the possibility of a mid-film costume change).

There’s not much to talk about, so here’s what the photos look like (click to enlarge):

We have removed the photos at the request of 20th Century Fox — but they’re still up at io9

Personally I hope this isn’t the final armor in the film, and that eventually Doom puts on something a little more… traditional. Also, I know most of the country won’t have thought of this, but doesn’t Doom mildly resemble No Brand Con mascot Duct Tape Boy a bit in this?

It’s just sort of uncanny…

Episode 23 – Call them BishouBros.

On this fortnight’s installment we talk about the return of Heroes of Cosplay, Ant Man’s director shuffle, Fantasic Four books leaving shelves just as Fox works on the film, a possible Stargate reboot, everyone freaking out about Michael Bay’s Evangelion comments, progress on Pacific Rim 2, and the second season of the (My) Immortal webseries.

That, and we’ve come up with a term for insecure dudes who like Sailor Moon.

Episode 6 – A 90s Revelation

The band is back together for our sixth episode where we talk about FOX picking up Gotham (a pre-Batman police procedural), Linda Carter’s Man of Steel 2/Wonder Woman comments, Stephanie Brown’s unbenching by DC, Star Trek Renegades, Star Wars Rebels, (My) Immortal’s season 2 kickstarter, and the newly recovered episodes of Doctor Who.

Also, revelations about Trae in the 90s.

It’s not as exciting as it sounds.

But it’s kind of funny.

Also: Link to the My Immortal Kickstarter.

Episode 5 – Fall TV Spectacular

On this episode of Nerd & Tie we talk about the new genre shows hitting the airwaves this fall. Sleepy Hollow, Agents of SHIELD, Almost Human, Dracula (yes, they’re actually making a Dracula series), Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, and The Tomorrow People all get put under the microscope!

But not The Originals.

Because we have standards.

Bryan “Arcemise” Novak is sitting in for Pher this episode, so don’t adjust your ears. If you have adjustable ears that is.

Man, how weird would THAT be…
