Following The Nerd A Hub For Fans Of Everything Nerd Fri, 19 Apr 2019 12:07:08 +0000 en-US hourly 1 A Hub For Fans Of Everything Nerd Following The Nerd A Hub For Fans Of Everything Nerd Following The Nerd Kathleen Kennedy reveals Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic movie or TV show is in the works… Fri, 19 Apr 2019 12:07:08 +0000

Great news for Star Wars fans hoping to hear news of a Knights of the Old Republic series or movie from Lucasfilm head Kathleeen Kennedy.

Speaking at Star Wars Celebration at the weekend, Kennedy revealed a few cool things about the future of the Force.

She revealed at we will likely see characters from the new movies again in the future even after the Skywalker saga ends – we’re guessing Rey, Finn and Poe – and that Disney+ may even be the way for that happen.

She revealed at Solo made them believe two Star Wars movies a year was too much. She revealed at female directors are working on The Mandalorian series and will be working on the Cassian Andor series too.

But most exciting, she revealed the a Knights of the Old Republic story could be coming: “You know, we talk about that all the time.

“Yes, we are developing something to look at. Right now, I have no idea where things might fall, but we have to be careful that there is a cadence to Star Wars that doesn’t start to feel like too much. We don’t have a crystal ball, you know, we tried a little bit with ‘Solo’ to see if we could do two movies a year and whether or not there really was an opportunity for that, and we felt that’s not going to work. So, we back off of that a little bit. But it doesn’t mean we don’t think about lots of different stories, because that’s the exciting thing about this universe.” (Watch the interview below).

A while back we heard rumours that Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss planned Staar Wars trilogy will focus on the Old Republic, so maybe there’s something to it after all…

Tom Welling confirmed he will appear in Arrow next season Fri, 19 Apr 2019 11:53:49 +0000

The speculation begins again…

So word is that Smallville star Tom Welling, who played Clark Kent/Superman in the series, told fans at Armageddon Expo in New Zealand that he will be appearing in Arrow next season.

But will he back as Superman?

Well, it’s hard to say.

In the past we know that Welling was approached about starring as Superman in Supergirl on The CW and wasn’t keen: “There was an idea that maybe Supergirl, appearing on that, but it’s such a different show. I’m older now, I don’t look the same. Appearing on that show as Clark Kent or even Superman, for me, I would not want to watch me do that at all. They just have such a different tone.”

However, last year when all the excitement was going on for the Elseworlds CW crossover event, Arrow star Stephen Amell shared an image of himself in a boardroom with Welling and Michael Rosenbaum who  played Lex Luthor in Smallville (check it out here). At the time we all thought it might be for Elseworlds but when neither actor appeared on that event, it was guessed that it was for the Crisis event coming later this year and spanning all The CW shows.

So, basically, we kinda knew already Welling would appear in The CW shows this year, but maybe now we know it’s going to be Arrow.

Will he be Superman? We damn sure hope so.

Mark Ruffalo passing the torch to She-Hulk in new Disney+ series? Fri, 19 Apr 2019 11:41:13 +0000

Word on the street is that Mark Ruffalo is almost done at the MCU and may be stepping up to hand the Hulk mantle over to the next big green hero.

With the news that the Disney+ streaming service will give us a Hawkeye series where he’ll hand over the title to Kate Bishop, it looks like Hulk may also be getting a female make-over moving forward in the MCU.

Here’s the report:

“We have been informed by a source that Marvel is developing a Hulk/She-Hulk team-up series. As with the rest of the Disney Plus projects, it’s closely tied to the movies, so Mark Ruffalo’s expected to star. However, the project will shift the focus onto She-Hulk as we’re told that Ruffalo is almost done with the role.”

In the comics Jennifer Walters in She-Hulk and was the cousin of Bruce Banner – Mark Ruffalo – who was shot by a crime boss – she’s an attorney – and to save her life, Bruce gave her a transfusion, which resulted in her getting Hulk’s powers but also keeping her personality intact.

What say you all? Would you like a She-Hulk series? Would you like to see Ruffalo stay on in the role? Let us know your thoughts.

Russo brothers ask Avengers fans not to leak the end of Endgame Fri, 19 Apr 2019 11:24:06 +0000

As many of you may know, a lot of the upcoming Avengers: Endgame leaked online earlier this week.

And while we haven’t seen the footage – no, we’ll wait for the big screen experience, thank you – we guess this has gotten under the skin of Marvel and Disney. Understandably.

So the Russo brothers, directors of Avengers: Endgame, shared a note, as they did when Avengers: Infinity War came out, asking fans to keep the end of the movie a secret so as not to spoil anything for the other fans.

And yes, we know this isn’t a direct response to the leak, but it still stands… if you see something DON’T say something!

After the devastating events of Avengers: Infinity War (2018), the universe is in ruins due to the efforts of the Mad Titan, Thanos. With the help of remaining allies, the Avengers must assemble once more in order to undo Thanos’ actions and restore order to the universe once and for all, no matter what consequences may be in store.

Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Paul Rudd, Jeremy Renner, Brie Larson, Josh Brolin and Chris Pratt.

Avengers: Endgame is scheduled to be released in theaters on April 26, 2019.

With Star Wars Celebration Chicago over we have some fun stuff to share.

One of the biggest events at the show was the Clone Wars panel as the hit series has been brought back for Disney’ streaming service, Disney+, later this year and we have a clip and trailer.

We loved Clone Wars and while Rebels was pretty good and Resistance is, well, it’s on TV, this is the show and cast we’ve been waiting to see return.

First we have a new clip from the sixth season of Clone Wars (and we hope Ashoka isn’t becoming Jar-Jar – don’t do it, Disney!):

And next up we get a full trailer and it looks  like our favourite Padawan is coming back to the Jedi Order:

BOOM!’s Angel #1 brings back a classic Buffy monster… Fri, 19 Apr 2019 10:47:09 +0000

BOOM! Studios in partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products today revealed cover art and story details for ANGEL #1, written by Bryan Hill (Detective Comics, Killmonger) with art from Gleb Melnikov (Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers), along with visionary writer and director Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Marvel’s The Avengers), available in stores May 29, 2019.

Meet Angel – a vampire cursed with a soul who has spent centuries protecting humanity from the monsters that lurk in the dark in an attempt to redeem himself for the crimes committed by the monster he was when he was first turned. But now, when the trail of the most recent demonic uprising takes him to Sunnydale, he realizes that the restoration of his humanity can only come if he takes one more life: a certain Slayer from Sunnydale who he’s never met…but may now be his greatest enemy. The brooding, dark vampire with a soul has just left the city of lights after marking another death on the never-ending list of debts he owes against his soul. Is he ready for one last sacrifice if it brings his long sought after peace?

ANGEL #1 features a main cover by artist Dan Panosian (Slots, Batman: Arkham Knight) and a monster-themed variant cover by illustrator Scott Buoncristiano (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) depicting the terrifying Der Kindestod, from the Buffy the Vampire Slayer season two episode “Killed By Death.”

Created by visionary writer and director Joss Whedon (Marvel’s The Avengers film franchise), Angel premiered on the WB Network on October 5th, 1999 and was a spin-off from Buffy The Vampire Slayer. The series ran for five seasons from 1999-2004, starring David Boreanaz as “Angel,” the tortured vampire destined to walk the earth with a soul who moved to LA to set up shop as a supernatural private investigator. Despite Angel’s best efforts to deal with the sins of his past all by himself, Angel Investigations soon became home to other lost souls searching for redemption and willing to fight by his side.

“We got our first taste of Angel in yesterday’s game-changing BUFFY #4 and surprise release of ANGEL #0, but that’s only the start of the newly reimagined vampire’s story in this modern Buffyverse.” said Jeanine Schaefer, Executive Editor, BOOM! Studios. “The questions weighing on Angel — the possibility of redemption, whether or not we own our own mistakes, and how we weigh the value of the lives around us versus our own — remain extremely relevant today. Bryan and Gleb are tackling that head on, set against the centuries long backdrop of the horrors Angel has seen and committed, revealing aspects of Angel’s history that are sure to shock longtime fans.”

ANGEL is the newest release from BOOM! Studios’ eponymous imprint, home to critically acclaimed original series, including Once & Future by Kieron Gillen and Dan Mora; Faithless by Brian Azzarello and Maria Llovet; Abbott from Saladin Ahmed and Sami Kivelä; Bury The Lede from Gaby Dunn and Claire Roe; Grass Kings from Matt Kindt and Tyler Jenkins; and Klaus from Grant Morrison and Dan Mora. The imprint also publishes popular licensed properties including Joss Whedon’s Firefly from Greg Pak and Dan McDaid; Buffy The Vampire Slayer from Jordie Bellaire and David Lopez; and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers from Ryan Parrott and Danielle Di Nicuolo.
