Another week closer to Civil War. Another week of nerdy news. Here I am, all…


Before the Russo Brothers and Civil War has me all…


Hey, I’m super excited to see it, but you know shizz is going to go down and it’s gonna hurt!  Sigh, so let’s distract ourselves a bit and do this!

10. The Killing Joke

Official trailer to The Killing Joke was released and it has made the nerddom overwhelmed with anticipation!!! Are you excited for July?!

9. Fantastic Four Rumor

You guys know I try my best not to feature rumors, but this has my little, optimistic, nerdy heart hoping for truth!  Plus, there’s a lot of little transactions from the business end that just seem fit! Sure, it would’ve been great to have them part of the MCU from the beginning, but better late than never! Right?! What do you think? See more details on the report via here.

Barney would definitely gasp at this transformation, but I am in love with this look and am looking forward to Netflix’ adaptation of “Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events”!!! Excited?

6. FilmStruck

Get ready for another streaming service nerds! One, that I personally, will be happily partaking in! A joint venture between Criterion Collection and TCM, FilmStruck will offer rare films, foreign films, classic films, films by legendary directors, independent films, cult favorites, and they will provide the Criterion Collection experience of bonus features. You can find more info here, where my mutual cinephile friend, Karen has written a piece about it!

3. Spiderman Homecoming

On the #CivilWar red carpet, Kevin Feige was asked about Marvel’s relationship with Sony. His response pleased many a worried nerd. See more here.

“Well, I’ve known all those people for a very long time. Amy Pascal, Tom Rothman, who runs Sony now, I’ve known for years. So, it’s been great. They really are supportive in allowing us to make the creative decisions to make [Spider-Man: Homecoming], but they’ve been great partners. So far so good on that movie.” ~Kevin Feige
