Nerds, we’ve had another week full of nerdy news bites. It is always difficult to choose what to list, but it’s fun to give it a go.
10. Black Panther
Ryan Coogler expressed interest in making a woman lead Black Panther, and Letitia was on it!
Ready big bro?? https://t.co/cmZVLFMXbE

9. An Evans Disaster
That is probably the most click-baity news bite title ever! Never again! In all seriousness, you’re giving me a disaster movie with Chris Evans? Can I have it tomorrow?
Chris Evans is teaming with director Neill Blomkamp to make a natural disaster movie called ‘Greenland’. https://t.co/Gkp0OvcAkN

Networks cleaned house this week and cancelled so many nerdy favorites. Wayward Sisters and Lucifer are still trying to be saved. Who all has signed the petitions?

7. Margot Kidder
We lost an iconic lady this week, but we will never forget what she represented.
My childhood was molded by strong characters like Margot Kidder’s Lois Lane and Carrie’s Leia. Losing these ladies is difficult, but we must remember how important it is to be feisty, bold, and curious! ~v #ripmargotkidder pic.twitter.com/hzzkgk2nMo

6. Bohemian Rhapsody
This project has been in the works for awhile, and we’ve been following production announcements since the beginning. We are so excited to see Rami step into Freddie.
The only thing more extraordinary than their music is their story. Watch the new #BohemianRhapsody teaser trailer now, in theaters November 2, 2018. Visit https://t.co/yZWLpFjd5w for a chance to have your voice added to a scene in the movie. pic.twitter.com/lfGdxFo8eH

4. In The Heights
Looks like the movie may be headed into production?!

3. Ms. Marvel
Twitter convos happening between Riz, Mindy, and G. Willow about Ms. Marvel were epic!
No no–Sana and I would be HONORED if Riz and Mindy wanted to screenwrite anything involving Ms Marvel. Superheroes are collaborative efforts. They never belong to a single person. Riz would bring experiences+talents to the project that I could not. I would be delighted. https://t.co/mVOtgpJMIz

For all the horror nerds, Guillermo is brining an anthology to Netflix! Here’s to the chills in our future!
