Stan Lee's Into The Spider Verse Cameo.

Stan Lee has very few of his infamous cameos left.

But his cameo in the just released Spider-man: Into the Spider Verse is a gut puncher.

Some may consider the following a spoiler, but as far as I know it is not.

Miles Morales enters a costume store to buy a Spider-Man suit.

He gets a cheap looking copy of Peter Parker's red and blue suit and wonders if it will fit.

The store clerk is Stan Lee who responds with "It always fits, eventually."


Original Hulk Lou Ferrigno hospitalized!

Don't worry, he's out now, and attending events with actor Dolph Lundgren.

Ferrigno just turned 67 last month and looks great for his age.

He ended up in the hospital after a pneumonia vaccine.

He posted on Twitter Wednesday, "Went in for a pneumonia shot and landed up here with fluid in my bicep."

Ferrigno was the star of the late 1970s TV series "The Incredible Hulk" along with Bill Bixby as Dr David Banner.


Avengers Endgame Website forwards to Deadpool?

So for some reason Marvel and Disney didn't think to reserve the websites avengersendgame.com and avengersendgamemovie.com.

So someone going by the Twitter handle @AGuyInChair bought them on the same day Avengers Infinity War hit theaters.

How he figured out the name so early seems unclear at this time.

What is clear is that all he wants from Marvel is two tickets to the premiere of Avengers Endgame.

When neither Disney nor Marvel responded to his offer, he decided to have some fun.

So he had the domains forward to the website for Once Upon a Deadpool.

Ryan Reynolds got involved and things only got more entertaining.

He sent @AGuyInChair a care package featuring the Ryan Reynolds owned Aviator brand gin.

To which @AGuyInChair immediately offered up for anyone who could get him two tickets to the premiere of Avengers Endgame.

Ryan Reynolds responded on Twitter with “This isn’t to say I’m proud of what you did. Just that I happen to love you.”

Still no response from Disney or Marvel though it seems.


Friday December 7th 2018

Alright, let's face it. The only Nerd News people care about today is that brand spanking new Avengers Endgame trailer.

So for today's Nerd News I present to you Trailer Trash Talk. It's not about that third cousin that loves Five Finger Death Punch, Affliction Wear T-Shirts, and still thinks chicks dig the stench of Axe Body spray. Nope, this is where we talk trash about a new movie trailer! So let's get started!

Watch the actual trailer at https://youtu.be/hA6hldpSTF8

Avengers: End Game will be released on April 26, 2019 instead of the previously announced May 3, 2019 release date.

I encourage you to post your thoughts in the comments, call me out for any mistakes I made, or just fill in the things that I missed.

Birds Of Prey Full Title Announced

So the full title of the Birds Of Prey movie has been announced, and it's a bit long.

Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn).

This might remind everyone that there was once talk of a Harley Quinn stand alone movie.

It does seem that the focus will still be everyone’s favorite female villain.

Now go read all 199 issues of the comic before the movie is released on February 7th 2020.


Avengers 4 Trailer Released Friday

The rumors are getting even louder that the first trailer for Avengers 4 will be released this Friday.

This would line up with the release of Ralph Breaks The Internet.

Which conflicts with our story a week ago that predicted that the trailer might be first seen before Mary Poppins.

However, sources continue to say that the title will be Avengers 4: Annihilation.

Feel free to type either 'LEGIT' or 'FAKE NEWS' in the comments to let us know if you agree with these current predictions.


Warner Brothers Streaming Service Announced

We all know about the upcoming Disney streaming service, most of us know about the DC streaming service, but now we also will have the Warner Bros streaming service.

Now of course this will create an overlap with the DC streaming service, since DC is a Warner Bros property.

But it will also include every HBO original series, the Harry Potter franchise, Hanna-Barbera cartoons, and so much more.

How many of these stand alone services can we handle asking for $10 until we start begging for package deals?

And wouldn't that put us right back to where we are now with cable companies raking us over the proverbial coals?

So much for cord cutting eh?

Female Pirate Replaces Jack Sparrow

Female Pirate Replaces Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean?

About a month ago we talked about the rumor that Disney was thinking about replacing Johnny Depp.

This would obviously be a risky move since every movie in the franchise has made around $1 Billion dollars each.

So a pirate named Redd has become an important figure on both the Disneyland and Disney World rides.

She is said to have taken over the controversial wench auction scene on the rides.

No passing of the torch where Jack Sparrow sails off into the sunset.

No subtle introduction in the movies where we get to meet Redd.

How do you think fans will accept Redd as the new protagonist in the franchise?


Once Upon A Deadpool Trailer Released

So the first trailer for Once Upon A Deadpool has been released.

For those unaware, Once Upon A Deadpool is a PG-13 edit of Deadpool 2.

It will be somewhat of a reenactment of the scenes from The Princess Bride, with Fred Savage and his grandpa in that movie, except Fred is a grown man, and Deadpool is in the grandpa's chair reading the story.

Fred is also not happy to be there, is tied up, and is throwing shade back at Deadpool better than anyone we've seen so far.

Once Upon A Deadpool hits theaters on December 12th.

$1 of every ticket will benefit Fudge Cancer, a charity whose name is edited because this is a PG-13 movie.

Click the link to the trailer in the show notes, and let us know your thoughts.


The Infinity War On Christmas

Avengers Infinity War hits Netflix on Christmas Day.

This will be the end of an era of sorts, as after this Disney will save it's premium content for its own streaming service.

Disney+ will launch late 2019 where eventually it will be all things Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, etc.

No word on when Ant-man And The Wasp will be available on Netflix though.


Bill Maher Is A Petulant Child

Bill Maher acted like a petulant child when he said some disrespectful things about fans mourning the loss of Stan Lee recently.

Author Neil Gaiman has given the best response so far on his Twitter account with...

"Maher’s just trolling, and lots of people are rising to the troll. (Julie Burchill did it better 30 years ago with her “There aren’t any adult comics because adults don’t read comics” line. ) More people cared about Stan Lee’s death than care about Bill Maher alive."

The company that Stan Lee helped found POW! Entertainment has released a statement as well.

“Mr. Maher: Comic books, like all literature, are storytelling devices. When written well by great creators such as Stan Lee, they make us feel, make us think and teach us lessons that hopefully make us better human beings. One lesson Stan taught so many of us was tolerance and respect, and thanks to that message, we are grateful that we can say you have a right to your opinion that comics are childish and unsophisticated. Many said the same about Dickens, Steinbeck, Melville and even Shakespeare.”

This is why I have never been able to take Bill Maher that seriously, even on the occasion that I agree with him.

He's too often an immature troll.




Wednesday November 14th 2018

The four confirmed movies with Stan Lee's Involvement:  

The two absolutely confirmed cameos are Captain Marvel and Avengers 4.

However, his voice will be heard in both Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse and Ralph Breaks The Internet.

In further Stan lee news:

Stan Lee's daughter claims that she has created a new character called DIRT MAN with her father before he passed away.

Could Dirt Man be legit or is this more of his daughter trying to milk his legacy for all she can?

Will Dirt Man have that Stan Lee level of quality to it without the collaboration of Steve Ditko?

Only time will tell.



Every episode of Game Of Thrones season 8 will be over an hour long.

Game Of Thrones director David Nutter let fans know this in a recent Reddit AMA.

Some rumors are claiming that the episodes will run about 90 minutes long.

Nutter also insinuated that season 8 will have moments that outshine the infamous Red Wedding.

It is also now confirmed that season 8 will kick off in April of 2019 on HBO.


It seems now that if a major movie doesn't break a billion dollars, that it is a failure.

The budget for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald was about $200 Million.

Although the movie won't open in the United States until Friday November 16th, many are speculating about it's potential.

If it earns between $65 million and $75 million domestically, that would put it pretty close to what the last Fantastic Beasts movie made.

This could mean that the movie would rake in around $800 million.

With fan reaction to this sequel being much better than the first Harry Potter prequel, it could end up making more.

Do you think this movie will be more magical than the last one at the box office?


Friday November 9th 2018

Nerd News for Friday November 9th 2018:

Captain Marvel star Brie Larson promotes phone sex line?

Although I'm pretty sure that it was by complete accident, it did happen.

She very recently Tweeted out an image of her standing at a phone booth with Rock The Vote posters all over it.

If you zoom in on the image however, you will see a number on the pay phone.

That number was once controlled by Disney and used on some of their cable channel shows.

It currently however is a phone sex line.

The shocking part of this story is that there are still working phone sex lines.

Have these people never heard of the internet?


Rogue One live-action prequel series announced!

During a fourth quarter earnings call, Disney CEO Bob Iger made the announcement that the name of the upcoming Disney streaming service would be simply Disney+.

It was also announced that Diego Luna will bring back his character Cassian Andor to lead the series.

This will of course join the already in production live action series from director Jon Favreau called The Mandalorian.

The Rogue One series will go into production next year and of course cover the time before Rogue One.


More details are coming out about the lawsuit from The Satanic Temple against the Netflix show The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

They are suing for $150 million in damages due to the use of their copyrighted version of religious icon Baphomet.

The Satanic Temple version has less nudity, two children, and is actually more family friendly than Baphomet is shown traditionally.

The lawsuit centers around how everything about the two children in the shows version of the statue is almost exactly like the Baphomet used by The Satanic Temple.

The religious organization tried to deal with the situation outside of court, but was ignored.    


Avengers 4 to possibly be 3 hours long according to director Joe Russo.

“The running time on Avengers 4 is currently sitting right at three hours. We’ll see if that holds.” Russo posted recently on Instagram.

Avengers: Infinity War was two hours, forty minutes and was the longest movie in the MCU.

Avengers 4 wrapped in October, they are now editing, and they still haven't told us the title.


Bryan Cranston has confirmed the news that broke yesterday about the Breaking Bad movie

"I have not gotten the script, I have not read the script. So there's the question of whether or not we'll even see Walter White in this movie. Think about that one."

Several outlets are reporting that the story will be centered around Jesse Pinkman trying to escape after being kidnapped, and his quest for freedom.

creator Vince Gilligan is involved so we expect it to be good.


Pacific Rim anime series coming to Netflix.
