A lover of all things nerd! From comics (mainly DC), to gaming, movies, and more. From Earth Prime to a galaxy far far away, you can find me indulging in all things fantastical! Heck, 6 out of my 9 tattoos are nerdy by nature. I am a Taurus, enjoy long walks on the beach, and sipping a nice scotch by the fireside. There is a fairly good chance that I may be a Force Sensitive Corellian. Master Paul says I am ready to face the Trials. Oh. I may also believe myself to be Batman. Batman the Corellian Jedi: be terrified.

Warner Bros. is Releasing a DC Animation Box Set

With all the DC/Warner Bros hype focused on their Hall H panel at San Diego Comic Con for Justice League and Aquaman, some fantastic news may have slipped under the radar last week. Having cranked out thirty animated feature films over the last decade, the powers that be have decided to give fans a special treat: a complete 32-disc box set in celebration of the DC Animated Universe 10th anniversary! Whereas it can be argued that Marvel Studios has been dominating the big screen via... Read More

Wonder Woman: the Hero Warner Bros Needed, but Not the One it Deserved

Wonder Woman opened on June 2nd to something Warner Brothers wasn’t used to: Good reviews.  With the studio taking death blows from critics with each new release (seriously go read the reviews for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad) they needed a hero (and a hit film) that could shield them.  Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) is that hero. I’ve written before about how this film could be game changing in a Hollywood where men rule; from studio heads, directors, and top... Read More

Star Wars Celebration 2017: A Toy Story

As many of you nerds out there already know, Star Wars Celebration was held last weekend in Orlando, Florida to epic fanfare.  While the biggest stories to come out of the event were the first teaser trailer for Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi and the return of Hayden Christianson to a Star Wars convention for the first time in years, some other news flew a little more under the radar. Bluefin, a leading collectibles dealer, presented a ton of cool releases at their booth from a... Read More

Batgirl Needs Wonder Woman and We Need Them Both

One of the most recent projects rumored to be in the works for the DC Extended Universe is a Batgirl stand alone film.  Any story from the Bat-Family tends to get lots of buzz, and this story is no different–especially since Joss Whedon’s  speculatively in talks to direct!  While this humble nerd journalist believes this could definitely be a big move for DC, we need to see how Warner Brothers handles Wonder Woman first before getting ourselves too excited; the success...

Hellboy III? Hell Yes!

Director extraordinaire Guillermo del Toro has fans of the Hellboy franchise as giddy as can be, taking to Twitter to tease a possible third film.  He only gave two options for his informal poll: Yes, and Hell Yes. One guess how this nerdslanter voted? That’s right, I voted hell yes, along with 68% of the Twitter voters. Informal poll (let’s see how many votes we get in 24 hours) Hellboy III — Guillermo del Toro (@RealGDT) January 18, 2017 If you’ve never heard of or... Read More
