On this, the one hundredth episode of Nerd & Tie, our heroes give our review of DC’s Wonder Woman movie, discuss how said film was banned in Lebanon, celebrate 40 years of Star Wars, and continued to get confused by the ongoing progress on Sony’s Venom movie. Then we take on the con scene, where ColossalCon forced Colossus Con to rebrand, and Phoenix Comicon narrowly avoided tragedy.
Suicide Squad is already looking to recast a character as Tom Hardy is backing out for reasons that have not been officially announced. (But since shooting on The Revenant is reportedly going longer than expected, its safe to assume that is the reason.)
Jake Gyllenhaal is reportedly already being approached about the part of Rick Flag, but only time will tell.
I’ve been fairly skeptical about the new Mad Max film starring Tom Hardy. I mean, it’s not that the originals are some untouchable set of classics or something, but were they really something that was screaming to be remade? We all remember Beyond Thunderdome. I mean, Master Blaster, right?
But lo and behold, the new Mad Max film has a fairly entertaining trailer. And while I know that Trailers are often waaaay better than the films they advertise, I might actually give this 2015 film starring Tom Hardy a shot.
