Jason Momoa Talks Why Aquaman is Important To Him and His Family

5 hours agoOdd : Nerd Bastards

There’s more to Aquaman than the hackneyed “he talks to fish” joke. He’s far cooler than most people ever give him credit for. He’s a born leader, handles hardships like a boss, and gets shit done. The moment the character grew a beard and jabbed a trident on the stub that was once his left […]

Our First Avengers: AoU TV Commercial Is Here!

11 hours agoOdd : Nerd Bastards

The first television spot (well, one that isn’t exclusively attached to Agents of Shield) has been released. The 30-second clip consists nearly entirely of previously seen footage from the initial two trailers – so in other words, nothing new to see here. You’re bound to see this on the Superbowl and then have it, as […]

‘Ted 2? Trailer Is Here and It’s Just as Raunchy and Sophomoric As The First One

13 hours agoOdd : Nerd Bastards

Who knew that Mark Wahlberg and a CGI debauchery fueled foul mouthed Teddy Bear would make for one of the funniest movies in the last 10 years. I think we all expected crap from Seth McFarlane’s directorial debut in Ted, but it was ripe with wit, sophomoric charm,  and boisterous laughter. It did run a […]

Recent ‘Agent Carter’ Addition Has Specific ‘Avengers’ Connection

15 hours agoOdd : Nerd Bastards

Agent Carter has been pretty sly with its callbacks and Easter eggs to other Marvel Studios works so far. Maybe that’s because it gets to be off on its own in 1946, or maybe it’s because, unlike the early days of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Carter doesn’t to use fan service to cover for languid storytelling. […]

‘Supergirl’ Casts ‘True Blood’ Hunk as Jimmy Olsen (Not a Typo)

17 hours agoOdd : Nerd Bastards

I think it’s been an avowed rule of portrayals of Jimmy Olsen that Superman’s best friend is – What’s the word I’m looking for? – a nerd. He was a young kid that wore a bow tie for decades for crying out loud! Unless you’re The Doctor, nothing says “nerd” like wearing a bow tie […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Justice League: Throne of Atlantis’ – A Decent Re-introduction To The King of The 7 Seas

19 hours agoOdd : Nerd Bastards

I am and always have been a big fan of DC’s King of the Seven Seas, Aquaman.  In fact, I like most aquatic  characters I’ve come across in my years of reading comic books like Aquaman’s counterpart at rival  Marvel,  Prince Namor, the Sub-Mariner, Tempest, Mera, and K’aldur’ahn, the updated Aqualad who made a big […]

TV REVIEW: ‘Arrow’ – S3E11 – “Midnight City”

19 hours agoOdd : Nerd Bastards

Although it brings to mind the jaunty tune by the French electronic duo, “Midnight City” was no happy-go-lucky hour of Arrow. In Starling City, for Oliver’s friends and allies, there’s no time for mourning, nor is there any time to stop and catch their breath. True, everyone’s green hooded hero was alive and well (ish), […]

Dan Aykroyd Gives His 1 ½ Cents on Female-Led ‘Ghostbusters’

yesterdayOdd : Nerd Bastards

It’s officially official and there’s nothing that anyone can do about it anymore – the new Ghostbusters reboot will feature an all-female team and – presumably – none of the original ghostbusting crew. They’ll be ignoring the past in favor of a fresh start and, whether you like it or not, this new incarnation will […]

TV REVIEW: ‘Marvel’s Agent Carter’ – S01E04 – “The Blitzkrieg Button”

yesterdayOdd : Nerd Bastards

This week’s episode of Marvel’s Agent Carter finds Peggy and Jarvis working together to recover Stark’s stolen inventions that are now on the black market.  We get the sense that some time has passed since the previous episode ‘Time and Tide’ – fitting since the viewers got a two week break as well.  The recovery […]

TV Review: The Flash – S1E11 – ‘The Sound And The Fury’

yesterdayOdd : Nerd Bastards

I am a cynic by nature.  I am always waiting for the other shoe to drop; for the pieces of the puzzle to fall away; for the cloud to burn out the silver lining; pick your cliché.  This is generally a trait that serves me well as a critic, since I rarely watch/read/play anything while […]

‘Fantastic Four’ Trailer With Director Commentary… Yeah, Cause That’s A Thing We Do Now.

yesterdayOdd : Nerd Bastards

Just a day after FOX finally released a trailer for Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four reboot they’ve re-released the trailer with additional  Producer (Simon Kinberg) and Director commentary. I can’t say I’ve ever seen this done before and in this particular case, it is pure brilliance. First off, I’d like to say that I don’t think […]

‘Flash’ EP Answers, “What is this Speed Force You Mentioned?”

yesterdayOdd : Nerd Bastards

If you’re a fan of this site, then you’ve probably heard of the Force, but how about the Speed Force? You may not be so steeped into the comic lore of the original Flash books to know anything about the Speed Force, so you might not have gotten too excited when it was name dropped […]

Ghostbusters Reboot: Release Date, First Promo Image, And Bill Murray

yesterdayOdd : Nerd Bastards

For some fans of the Ghostbusters franchise the confirmation of Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones no doubt gave them something to be afraid of. And with nobody to call, frustrated and disillusioned folk took to Twitter and Facebook to vent their frustrations. Show More Summary

Did ‘ID4-2? Just Get Dreamier? Liam Hemsworth Considered for Sequel

yesterdayOdd : Nerd Bastards

In a case of classic sibling rivalry, it seems that from Liam Hemsworth‘s point of view, if his big brother is going to save the world from aliens, then he’s going to get his chance too. Hemsworth, the younger brother of Thor star Chris Hemsworth, is the latest rumored cast addition to the sequel of […]

Disney Eyeing Chris Pratt For Indiana Jones Franchise

2 days agoOdd : Nerd Bastards

Is this a case of a Pratt trifecta? Well, not quite, but it’s certainly shaping up that way with this latest casting rumor. Coming off the back of one of the biggest films of 2014 Guardians Of The Galaxy and leading up to a new Jurassic Park, Chris Pratt is now reportedly being eyed by Disney to star in […]

Captain America: Civil War! Now that I have your attention, let’s talk about one of the rumors about the first film in the next phase of Marvel‘s big screen development. We know that Daniel Bruhl was cast last year in Civil War, but the role he was cast to play was not revealed. On film, […]

Avengers: Age of Ultron Opening Scene Deets!

2 days agoOdd : Nerd Bastards

Captain America, Thor, The Black Widow, Iron Man, The Hulk, and that guy with the arrows – together they are Earth’s Mightiest Heroes! Their combined forces have managed to keep a lid on plot details for their sophomore blockbuster attempt where they face the Ultron and the Olsen Twins (no, the other ones). However the […]

TV REVIEW: ‘Gotham’ S1E13 – “Welcome Back, Jim Gordon”

2 days agoOdd : Nerd Bastards

The events of last week’s Gotham set a new stage for how the show might pan out over future episodes. The tables have turned for Fish and The Penguin, with the former boss on the outs with the big guy, Falcone, and her ex-whipping boy taking over her club. Gordon caught a super villain and […]
