"Yes! I'm gonna call you ANT-onio Banderas!" ~ Scott Lang
Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018)

NERD NEWS SHOW NOTES:

MONDAY:

 

The backlash against Kathleen Kennedy continues!

She is the boss of Lucasfilm so in the end this all lands at her feet.

She hired directors, fired directors, and hired new directors, all within a single film.

She hired Rian Johnson, then gave him an entire trilogy!

The Last Jedi has fans more ticked off than a Jar Jar Binks tribute at Star Wars Celebration!

There have been rumors for weeks that she has either been forced out, or will step aside voluntarily for Star Wars 9.  

Some are saying that she is giving JJ Abrams complete creative control.

There are also rumors that Disney boss Bob Iger wants Kathleen Kennedy out, but no one will take her job.

September is when this will all hit the proverbial fan.

Do you think it's true?

https://www.express.co.uk/entertainment/films/988934/Star-Wars-Last-Jedi-backlash-fan-boycott-Kathleen-Kennedy-Episode-9-Rian-Johnson-JJ-Abrams

 

Last week we got the first look at Zachary Levi as Billy Batson/Shazam!

This seems to have excited fans.

It also inspired some to go a bit crazy with memes.

There are a few of them.

They are all exactly what you'd expect from the internet.

Yet perfect at the same time.

Please post your favorite Shazam memes in the comments section.

Shazam hits theaters on April 5th 2019.

http://comicbook.com/dc/2018/07/15/shazam-movie-2019-first-look-photo-meme-dceu/#7

 

Bogus Production Problems Might Stop Bill & Ted 3 From Happening.

Please someone tell us this isn't true?!

In a recent interview with Yahoo Entertainment, Keanu Reeves sounded doubtful.

“I don’t know if [Bill & Ted 3] is a reality,” adding, “We’ve been trying for a long time to get that film made, and it still has its challenges.”

Shut up Ted!

TUESDAY:

 

Warcraft director Duncan Jones's next movie to be an adaptation of the classic 2000 AD character Rogue Trooper.

No further details about the Rogue Trooper movie have been revealed as yet, but the final line on Duncan's recent Twitter teaser suggests that more information will follow very soon--possibly at San Diego Comic-Con, which takes place next weekend.

If the movie happens it will be Jones's fifth film; most recently he directed the sci-fi thriller Mute for Netflix.

Rogue Trooper was created by writer Gerry Finley-Day and artist Dave Gibbons, and he first appeared issue 228 of 2000 AD, in 1981.

https://www.gamespot.com/articles/warcraft-director-taking-classic-comic-book-charac/1100-6460408/

 

Zombieland 2 is happening.

A decade after the original.

The sequl will happen with director Ruben Fleischer and original cast.

The movie is expected to begin production in January, and hit theaters in October 2019.

Zombieland 2 will reunite Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, and Abigail Breslin.

https://www.theverge.com/2018/7/14/17572198/zombieland-2-woody-harrelson-jesse-eisenberg-ruben-fleischer


 

Stan Lee returns to Social Media!

The Twitter message text simply said "I’M BACK! – Stan."

However it included a video where the 95 year old explained that it took awhile to get used to being 79 years old.

He of course ended it with "Excelsior!,"

https://twitter.com/TheRealStanLee/status/1017862839623708672

 

Godzilla: King of the Monsters first look.

The movie starts five years after 2014's Godzilla.

“The world is reacting to Godzilla in the same way we would react to any other terrifying incident, in that we are overreacting,” says director Michael Dougherty.

The director continued, “but there’s paranoia and endless speculation about whether he is the only one out there or whether we’re threatened by others like his kind.”

In King of the Monsters they make it clear that there are other big beasts such as three-headed King Ghidorah, Mothra, Rodan, and possibly more.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters is out May 31st 2019.

If Tron and Mad Max Had A Baby.

A hubless motorcycle?

It looks really cool at first, but then you start to notice things.

The bike never turns.

A pedal bicycle is keeping up with the motorbike at one point.

The design would give me a massive fear of potholes.

But it does look pretty cool.

WEDNESDAY:

 

Nathan Fillion As Uncharted's Nathan Drake.

In short that clocks in just short of 15 minutes, Nathan Fillion leads an all star cast Uncharted mini-movie.

Also starring in the fan film is Stephen Lang (Avatar, Tombstone) as Sully, Geno Segers (Banshee, Brawl in Cell Block 99) as Diego, Mircea Monroe (Episodes, Hart of Dixie) as Elena, and Ernie Reyes Jr. (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze, The Rundown) as El Tigre.

It was directed by Allan Ungar (Tapped Out, Gridlocked) and written by Jesse Wheeler (Powder and Gold) and Ungar.

https://www.geeksofdoom.com/2018/07/16/uncharted-fan-film-nathan-fillion-drake


 

Jeremy Renner out of The Mission: Impossible series.

Due to contractual obligations to Marvel, Jeremy Renner's William Brandt is out.

Writer and director Christopher McQuarrie talked recently to Digital Spy about the absence.

“So there was just simply no predicting. If we had a finished script, we would have been able to say, ‘Yes, this will work and we can let you go for this time,’ but there was just no predicting what those roles were going to turn out to be. It was just an unfortunate case of bad timing.”

https://uproxx.com/movies/mission-impossible-jeremy-renner-marvel/

 

Stan Lee is the boss now.

Stan Lee is back with a new comedic series titled Work Force, which depicts the everyday zany lives of boss Lee and his team of superhero employees.

It's called Workforce and seems to be an animated comedy series.

Stan Lee himself plays the boss, with a team of superhero staff that he leads.

The series will be launched on TheRealStanLee.com website.

https://deadline.com/2018/07/stan-lee-pow-entertainment-work-force-comic-series-novel-1202427601/



 

THURSDAY:

 

Little Book Chapter 2 was Noe Simple Task.

Being the eighth generation Beam family distiller comes with an automatic challenge to bring out the finest product.

Frederick Booker Noe III had to live up to the standard brought by Booker's bourbon, its namesake Booker Noe, and the legacy of the Jim Beam family.

Even the name of the whiskey is the nickname his grandfather Booker Noe gave him.

Although the second chapter of the Little Book series was his 34th attempt, the balance of Kentucky Straight Rye, Canadian Whisky, and Canadian Rye might be just what was needed.

It's a bold step to release a blended whiskey when you come from a legacy of straight bourbons and rye whiskies.

"In the end, I found the 40-year-old whisky and 13-year-old rye helped me achieve exactly what I wanted—a truly balanced and refined whiskey with a nice, lingering finish that’s full of flavor."

Will Mark Millar's Netflix series make him a Kingsman, and will it kick ass?

Mark Millar is best known for his work in comic books The Authority, The Ultimates, Marvel Knights Spider-Man, Ultimate Fantastic Four, Civil War, Kingsman: The Secret Service, Wanted, Chrononauts, Superior and Kick-Ass, the latter seven of which have been, or will be, adapted into feature films.

His next creations are strictly for Netflix.

"Jupiter’s Legacy” follows the world’s first generation of superheroes who received their powers in the 1930’s.

American Jesus follows a 12 year old boy reincarnated as Jesus Christ.

Three movies that are included in his Netflix deal are “Empress,” “Huck” and “Sharkey the Bounty Hunter.”

Will these live up to his reputation as a comic book writer?

Greg Berlanti developing Batwoman for CW.

Many already joke that Greg Berlanti owns the CW, but those jokes are only going to ring more true

Greg Berlanti and Caroline Dries are developing the drama ahead of the lesbian character's debut in the network's DC crossover event in December.

Batwoman revolves around Kate Kane, who, armed with a passion for social justice and flair for speaking her mind, soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city's criminal resurgence.

Who would you cast as Batwoman?

FRIDAY:

 

Disney wins war for 21st Century Fox

Comcast has dropped out of the fight for 21st Century Fox assets.

This means Disney will very likely soon own Avatar, The X-Men, Deadpool and The Fantastic Four.

"I'd like to congratulate Bob Iger and the team at Disney and commend the Murdoch family and Fox for creating such a desirable and respected company," Comcast chief Brian Roberts said in a statement.

https://money.cnn.com/2018/07/19/media/comcast-fox-disney/index.html

 

The Dark Knight Returns To Imax Screens for 10th Anniversary.

July 18 may be the exact anniversary day, but Friday August 24th is when Warner Bros wants to celebrate.

It will run for one week only.

The Dark Knight was one of the first major Hollywood movies that was partly shot in IMAX.

http://screencrush.com/the-dark-knight-imax-rerelease/

 

Joaquin Phoenix is Joker movie gets title.

The Joker movie will simply be titled JOKER.

I'm sure they stayed up several nights thinking of that one.

Joker will be released October 4th, 2019.

https://pagesix.com/2018/07/19/joaquin-phoenixs-joker-movie-gets-release-date/

 

Star Wars: The Clone Wars Is Back!

There will be twelve new episodes released to the Disney streaming service.

This was announced during the 10th Anniversary Clone Wars panel at San Diego Comic-Con.

Producer Dave Filoni announced that they would finish the story left hanging after the show’s abrupt cancellation in 2013.

Disney’s direct-to-consumer streaming service is expected to launch sometime next year.

Jason Momoa was almost an MCU villain.

“I met the Russo brothers, who are amazing,” Momoa revealed. “It was one of the best meetings I’ve ever had. I was going to do something with them, which unfortunately didn’t work out.”

He also auditioned to be in Guardians of the Galaxy,” and the rumor is that it was to play Drax the Destroyer.

“Aquaman” opens nationwide December 21.

Kevin Smith Isn’t Afraid Of Failing With ‘Hollyweed’

We've told you about Kevin Smith's new pot series that he launched on Rivit.

We now know that this new crowd funding site needs to bring in $5.3 million to greenlite six more episodes.

This doesn't include the pilot that you can watch now at the Rivit website.

If you had asked me [to do this] like six months ago, I would have been like, “Oh, I don’t know because what if it doesn’t work, and then I look like an a**hole or something like that.” I almost died f***ing five months ago, so now I’m like, “Let’s try it, man.”

Bob Parr: "Suit up! It might get weird."
Incredibles 2 (2018)

NERD NEWS SHOW NOTES:

Ron Howard feels bad about Solo?

Director Ron Howard has been watching the tepid turnout for his “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” too.

On Twitter Howard responded to a woman on Twitter with " “As a director I feel badly when people who I believe (& exit polls show) will very likely enjoy a movie... don’t see it on a big screen w/great sound.”

“Solo” earned $176 million domestically in its first 17 days at the box office.

The Marvel Cinematic Mastermind Kevin Feige has spoken!

Kevin Feige gave a cryptic and vague update on The Fantastic Four/X-Men.

Kevin Feige stated he’s waiting to hear back if the Fox/Disney merger will grant the MCU access to the Fantastic Four and X-Men roster of characters.

"I’m just sitting, waiting for a phone call to say yay or nay. But obviously it would be nice to have access to that entire library."

Legal Claim might kill New ‘Friday the 13th: The Game’ Content

Original film’s scriptwriter Victor Miller claims he wasn’t employed when he wrote the movie.

So he is looking to terminate a grant of rights and reclaim ownership of the property.

Miller’s lawsuit leaves the future of the franchise hanging in the balance.

Dresden Files author Jim Butcher was recently asked how close he sticks to his original 20-book outline.

He was at the Tribeca Barnes & Noble store in New York City for a Q&A/signing session.

Jim Butcher's answer was "Religiously."

He also let it be known that he is getting married in September.

Lastly, he estimated that it would be about 5 months until the next book in The Dresden Files will be released.

Is it too early to start my wish list to Santa Clause?

'Skyrim' for Amazon Alexa is real!

What was thought to be a joke, turns out to be legit.

The game seems to play like a classic MUD, but with voice commands.

You can play by tapping Alexa's circular icon on any Amazon-installed device and saying, "Alexa, open 'Skyrim.'" You can also go to the product page and enable it on your devices.

Apple banned cryptocurrency mining!

Apple is worried about the battery drain from background cryptocurrency mining.

"Apps may not mine for cryptocurrencies unless the processing is performed off device," Apple's app store guidelines for iOS now say.

This requirement was absent from the same document just a few weeks ago.

Three Other Game of Thrones Prequels Are in 'Active Development'

There was originally five total possible Game Of Thrones prequels.

Author George R R Martin cleared some things up.

“Three more Game of Thrones prequels, set in different periods and featuring different characters and storylines, remain in active development,” the author wrote.

Amazon might save Lucifer!

Last month Fox canceled the show Lucifer.

According to new Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke, the streaming service has held conversations about potentially giving new life to Lucifer.

“We were talking about Lucifer,” Salke said. “I’m not sure where we are on that. I know that international, especially the UK group, was really bullish on that show, I haven’t checked in on that today (Thursday), but I heard conversations were ongoing on that yesterday.”

HBO’s Watchmen TV series has been filming in Macon, Georgia.

Sets haven’t exactly been a secret.

We’ve already seen some photographs of the alternate world the show is creating, which exists in the same superhero-filled and science fiction-tinged timeline we visited in Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ rightfully iconic comic book miniseries.

A /Film reader who lives in Macon snapped some new photos of the re-dressed city.

What’s on display is especially interesting if you’re familiar with the source material.

These images should be considered potential spoilers, so consider this your one and only warning.

Stan Lee's Business Manager Arrested on Suspicion of Filing False Police Report.

The man Stan Lee recently said is the only person who represents him in any of his affairs was arrested Monday on suspicion of filing a false police report, the Los Angeles police department confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.

Keya Morgan was arrested around 1 p.m. and taken in to custody by the LAPD's Hollywood Division.

His bail was set at $20,000.

He is due back in court July 2.

Police did not release the exact details of the arrest, but it may have something to do with a report earlier this month that Lee was allegedly confronted at his home by two gunmen who demanded money from the 95-year-old Marvel icon.

Beaver Butt Whiskey Anyone?

A New Hampshire based distillery has created a bourbon with an interesting flavoring - the scent oils found in the castor sacs of beavers, New Hampshire beavers that is.

" Eau De Musc ," is a high-end, 88-proof bourbon distilled by Tamworth Distilling and Mercantile of Tamworth, New Hampshire.

The beaver-specific scent that is in this craft bourbon is called castoreum.

It's in everything from natural foods to fruit flavorings to cigarettes.

The Food and Drug Administration lists castoreum as a "generally recognized as safe" food additive.

Tamworth Distilling and Mercantile's "Eau De Musc," which is a limited-release, is sold in a 200 milliliter bottle for $65.

George Lucas' Star Wars sequels would've been all about midi-chlorians?

Sure Disney has done a horrid job with the Star Wars franchise, but it sounds like George Lucas would have done even worse!

Essentially, he was planning to lean into the stuff that fans really hated about The Phantom Menace, specifically midi-chlorians and the “scientific” explanation for the Force.

Do you think this would be worse, as bad, or better?

‘Stranger Things’ Star Millie Bobby Brown Leaves Twitter After She Becomes Subject of Homophobic Meme.

The page went missing after multiple images of the actress were turned into anti-gay tweets, culminating in a meme that gained steam on the social media platform.

Brown, who is only 14, became the subject of a series of Photoshopped images depicting her as homophobic, as well as a hashtag #TakeDownMillieBobbyBrown, which first appeared in November and resurfaced in June — coinciding with the beginning of Pride Month.

Although we at Nerds Drink Whiskey believe this to be an extremely small group of people, and not true nerds, we believe that this toxic behavior shouldn't be tolerated.  

Again, these are not nerds, but trolls!

My personal picks for streaming are as follows:
On Netflix Anon is available on Friday May 4th – It's a futuristic thriller about a wanted murderer who uses the permanent deletion of digital data to evade police capture.

It's also a great time to catch up on Bill Nye Saves The World, as Season 3 hits the service May 11th

In Whiskey news:
Rock legend and icon Bob Dylan will launch his own series of three whiskeys. The band news? It's being done through Angel's Envy, the most boring whiskey we have ever reviewed on this show. Will Mr Dylan's whiskey be as bland and uneventful? Should he have stuck with his original brand name of "Bootleg whiskey" instead of his new name "Heaven’s Door Spirits?" Time will tell if the straight rye, straight bourbon, or the “double-barreled” whiskey will be as tasty as his music has.

CNN reports that Drinkers have more bad mouth bacteria. As with all studies, unless there are follow up studies that support the study, it is just a hypotheses. There must be a general consensus before a hypothesis has any weight to it. I could not find any information about a general consensus amongst researchers.
