While we are excited to go 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea with Bryan Singer in the next couple of years, we should strap in because Captain Nemo has another outing coming…


Disney has hired James Mangold, director of Wolverine, to handle their 20,000 Leagues prequel movie, Captain Nemo. No relation to Singer’s movie which is with FOX.

The Disney version will be a prequel to the 1954 movie starring Kirk Douglas and James Mason and will tell the story of how Nemo built his famous submarine, the Nautilus.

The original movie – and Singer’s version – were based on Jules Verne’s classic novel of the same name.

You may remember that Nemo was also one of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Let’s hope these versions can deliver more than that one did (yes, we know, it’s a guilty pleasure).

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….
