PICTURE ROUND-UP: Wolverine, Walking Dead, Catching Fire, Iron Man 3 and Man of Steel

January 14th, 2013 by Marc Comments

It’s the return of our semi-regular post featuring the best of the images floating around the interwebs…

Without further ado, first up is this beauty of a poster for the return of The Walking Dead Season 3. The Governor is out for blood… but who’s blood, exactly? Find out on February 8th…

Next is a selection of images from Catching Fire, the sequel to The Hunger Games. There’s a few returning faces (Helmsworth, Lawerence etc) and the inclusion of Philip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee, Woody Harrelson as Haymitch Abernathy and the great Donald Sutherland as President Snow means we’re looking forward to this one… Hunger Games: Catching Fire opens on November 22, 2013

The next images are from some of the superhero movies we’re excited about:

Firstly, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in James Mangold’s The Wolverine due for release on July 26

Next up, Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) gets up close to Iron Man/Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) in Iron Man 3, due for release on April 26, 2013

And finally, Superman in chains? Henry Caville as The Man of Steel in Zack Snyder’s new take on, em, the man of steel – dues for release on  June 14, 2013

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
