Breaking News! And the best news, without doubt, of the week…

Yes, it has just been confirmed on the Walt Disney Investors Conference Call that NERD GOD Joss Whedon will both write and direct the sequel to that small superhero movie many of us liked this summer… The Avengers.

Now has that made your nerdy day?

Not quite? Well, how about the confirmation that he will also be heavily involved in the live-action TV series that will run alongside the movies and exist in what is now called the Marvel movie-verse? Oh yes… the anticipation for the series and sequel starts… ready… wait for it…. steady…NOW!

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….
