This week’s nerdy news bites cover an array of topics after a Marvel-ous weekend. Wha? I know nothing…
OK, yes, that has been a running joke and no, I’m not sorry.
10 Justice League
Ben Affleck will be an executive producer for Justice League. Seeing as Ben’s Batman was one of the best things from BvS and he is playing multi-roles in his Batman stand alone, this should excite many nerds. See more here.
Superman prequal gets a pilot order at SyFy. Described as… “Krypton is one of the most iconic stories in the comic book universe,” said NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment’s Bill McGoldrick. “In the talented hands of David S.

Godzy has been delayed to 2019, while Godzilla vs Kong will rumble to theaters in 2020. See more details here to a possible explanation of all the shifting.
The lovely Krysten Ritter will be filming season 2 of Jessica Jones and Defenders back to back!
“They’ll be back-to-back. I don’t know if they’ll overlap a little bit. It’s about to be a serious undertaking. I’m starting my physical training – lots of weight training and boxing.” She says. These Netflix/Marvel series are amazing and the more the merrier. With rumored talks of Blade and Ghost Rider, I mean…all the excite! Luke Cage graces our teles in November when Strange graces our theaters. See more of what Krysten said here.
ICYMI, the Honest Trailer for Deadpool features Deadpool. Only makes sense.

Genius! See more here.
More scientific progress occurred today when Hyperloop One passed a big test. This is a huge step forward to revolutizing travel. For someone with wanderlust, like myself, I’m keeping my fingers crossed for more giant leaps forward. See more here.
