NERD NEWS SHOW NOTES

MONDAY:

 

Toys That Made Us Season 3 Will Feature Power Rangers, Wrestling, TMNT, and My Little Pony.

Anyone older than 30 that watched the first season of The Toys That Made Us, was left craving for more.

Season two was released in May,and we all turned into Claudia from Interview with a Vampire.

"I want some more!"

Netflix has not only responded with what will make up season three, but let us know that this is no longer the original 8 part special.

The Toys That Made Us is now an ongoing documentary series.

https://www.netflix.com/title/80161497

 

Writer-Director Jon Schnepp has died.

Known for Space Ghost Coast to Coast, Metalocalypse, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, and many more, Jon's death is a huge loss.

He died from complications of a stroke.

He was 51.

Star Trek Discovery, now with Spock!

Executive Producer Alex Kurtzman confirmed the news at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend.

Star Trek Discovery returns in January.

https://www.cnet.com/news/star-trek-discovery-confirms-spock-for-second-season-comic-con-2018/

 

I Mark Carras, the host of Nerds Drink Whiskey, have watched the new Kevin Smith show Hollyweed!

Although I have never indulged in the green and sticky, I found the show to be hilarious!

The soundtrack might have been slightly annoying, but the show is so funny that I didn't care.

This is the best new comedy in a very long time.

I can't recommend it enough.

Follow the link in the show notes to give it a view, but don't watch it at work.

TUESDAY:

 

Pressure is being aimed at Disney for James Gunn being fired.

You might have heard that James Gunn was fired from the Guardians Of The Galaxy 3 movie for something said about a decade ago.

Many in Hollywood have come out to not just support him, but point out that being fired after trying to be a better person is a bad direction to go.

Actress Selma Blair urged Disney to "RE-HIRE JAMES GUNN" and encouraged her followers to sign a Change.org petition in support of him.

As of Monday, nearly 200,000 people had signed the petition.

Others voicing support are Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Chris Pratt,  and Rick And Morty co-creator Justin Roiland.

Comedian/actor Patton Oswalt took aim at far-right social media personality Mike Cernovich, who is credited with digging up Gunn's old comments.

"This is one of the LESS disgusting tweets from Mike Cernovich, the dude who, after running a Gamergate-style smear campaign, just got James Gunn fired from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3.," Oswalt said in a retweet of what looked to be a tweet from Cernovich about date rape.

Please check the link in the show notes for the full story, because it's a good one!

Mark Hamill was not dressed as ‘Orange Vader.’

Mark Hamill used a Jedi mind trick on us all.

During the hype of Comic-Con, Hamill retweeted someone using the handle 'Brendan Bajillioz' who thought Hamill was the one dressed as what he called 'Orange Vader.'

Hamill followed up about 19 hours later with "Breaking News: FANS SLAM SHAM-HAM SCAM- Actor Mark Hamill says it was all in good fun & simply a joke meant to playfully mind-trick his fans. He claims (without proof) most people enjoyed his massive San Diego Comic Con-Job!"

The Mary Sue has an interesting take on the latest Buffy news.

In case you didn't hear, Buffy The Vampire Slayer is being re-booted.

This time with an African-American actress in the iconic role, a female African-American showrunner in charge, and some asking some very important questions.

The writer points out that "Unless original work from creators of color gets made, it’ll never belong to that community."

She follows that with "It’d be better if it were spinoff series with a black Slayer—which could still turn out to be the case, with the show still in early development—because then, at least, she could be her own person, but even that doesn’t have the same benefits as something wholly original."

Although we don't entirely agree with everything said in the article, it is very much worth reading.

Zachary Quinto Confirms R-Rating For Quentin Tarantino’s Star Trek Movie.

Zachary Quinto recently talked to USA Today and had this to say:

We’re waiting on specifics. I’m thrilled that we might have the opportunity to work with [Tarantino] and see what he would do with us in this universe. It’s going to be an R-rated version of Star Trek, which would be the first (in) the movies, and that’s exciting. I’ve been a fan of his for years, and I’m really inspired by his originality. Take that originality and mix it with this world full of incredible ideology and colorful characters, and the result could be pretty thrilling.

Between the blood and F-bombs that Quentin Tarantino is known for, none of this should be too shocking, but what are your thoughts on the Quentin Tarantino Star Trek?

Stan Lee is getting animated with the Teen Titans.

In Teen Titans Go to the Movies, Stan Lee is a character.

It's a superhero movie cameo where he makes fun of himself, for doing so many superhero movie cameos.

Is this the most meta thing you've heard about today?

Bobcat Goldthwait lashes out at Disney!

In response to James Gunn being fired, Bobcat Goldthwait asked Disney To Remove His Voice From an upcoming Park Attraction.

“I would hate for you to come off as hypocritical so I’m suggesting you remove my voice from the attraction that’s coming to your park. It’s called WORLD OF COLOR – VILLAINOUS, and I reprise the role of Pain, a role I played in HERCULES,” Goldthwait writes. “You see here’s the deal, years ago I made a lot of sarcastically shocking and offensive jokes. Many that I’m embarrassed about now, and I’d hate to make you guys look bad seeing that I’m openly critical of the president and his administration, and you seem to be taking your lead from some of his radical fringe supporters.”

I think this is the most classy thing Bobcat Goldthwait has ever done!

So they have decided to do a re-boot of Buffy The Vampire Slayer eh?

Most fans are already preparing to hate this.

Since they have also announced that they want an African American lead, we know what the result will be.

Just like with the Ghostbusters re-boot, The Last Jedi, and a few other incidents, they will call you racist and sexist if you say that it sucks.

But I think I have a way to make everyone happy.

What about a deep dive on the two black Slayers already in the Buffyverse?

Let's do a deep dive on the backstory of Kendra Young and her Watcher Sam Zabuto?

Then maybe mix in some flashbacks of Nikki Wood as well.

Any fellow Buffy fans out there?

They are going to do it no matter what we think, but how would you guide them to make it not suck?

Nathan Fillion Gets Honest About Booster Gold Rumors.

The actor recently opened up about Booster Gold at San Diego Comic-Con, and while he isn't actively campaigning for the role, he thinks he'd be great at it.

I heard that. He's a great character. Am I vying for the role? And do I want an internet thing to go crazy? No, I don't want that to happen. Do I think it's a great role? Yes. Would I do an amazing job... I like to think that I would... I like to think that I would. I like to think I would. He's a great character. He's such a dufus. I could do that.

Rick and Morty creator Dan Harmon apologizes for Distasteful Video.

The resurfaced video involved the assault of children as part of a scheme to stop serial killers by traveling back in time.

“In 2009, I made a ‘pilot’ which strove to parody the series ‘Dexter’ and only succeeded in offending,” Harmon said in a statement obtained by Variety. “I quickly realized the content was way too distasteful and took the video down immediately. Nobody should ever have to see what you saw and for that, I sincerely apologize.”

THURSDAY:

Cosplayers Rally For Rose at Comic Con!

I don't care how much you hate the Disney era of Star Wars, harassing the cast is wrong.

The actress Kelly Marie Tran left social media because internet trolls kept attacking her.

But true Star Wars fans made sure she felt some love, by cosplaying her character Rose Tico from The Last Jedi.

FRIDAY:

 

Will Mara Jade be in Star Wars 9?

Timothy Zahn created the character Mara Jade, but has not heard anything about Mara Jade being in Star Wars: Episode IX.

When Disney bought Lucasfilm in 2012, the Expanded Universe was re-branded as Legends.

Many Legends characters have made it back to canon however.

Fans have been passionately begging Lucasfilm to bring Mara Jade to canon again.

In an interview with the Talking Bay 94 podcast, the author said he's unaware if Mara Jade is in the Episode IX screenplay. However, he would be interested in seeing the character make the leap from Legends to canon, as long as it was the right fit.

Check out the link to a great article on the potential for a Mara Jade appearance in the show notes.

Will International Drinkers Will Save bourbon from a Bust?

According to the Distilled Spirits Council, more than 23 million cases of American whiskey were sold in 2017, much of it bourbon, bringing over $3 billion in revenue for distillers.

Times have not always been so good.

In the late 1970s and through the early 2000s, when limited-edition bottles and cult favorite Pappy van Winkle burst onto the scene, bourbon was overshadowed by vodka’s immense popularity.

The industry’s ace in the hole could be exports.

“Despite the renaissance the category has enjoyed, bourbon is still underdeveloped globally versus other whiskey categories like Scotch,” Rob Mason, vice president of whiskies marketing at Beam Suntory, says.

“Globally, the total market for Scotch and American whiskey is $6.7 billion,” Heaven Hill’s master distiller Denny Potter says.

“In today’s market, Scotch accounts for an 82 percent share of those sales. If American whiskey moved the needle just 10 percent, exports would exceed $2 billion. Compare that to domestic American whiskey sales of $4 billion.”

For political and logistical reasons, 2018 could be a challenging time to bring a distinctly American spirit to international markets.

Only one out of five Game Of Thrones Prequels have survived!

For obvious reasons HBO has been pulling out all the stops to keep the Game Of Thrones brand alive after the final season.

New Buffy showrunner walks back the term reboot?

showrunner Monica Owusu-Breen made an interesting post to Twitter yesterday.

For some genre writers it’s Star Wars.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer is my Star Wars.

Before I became a writer, I was a fan. For seven seasons, I watched Buffy Summers grow up, find love, kill that love. I watched her fight, and struggle and slay.

There is only one Buffy. One Xander, one Willow, Giles, Cordelia, Oz, Tara, Kendra, Faith, Spike, Angel... They can’t be replaced. Joss Whedon’s brilliant and beautiful series can’t be replicated. I wouldn’t try to.

But here we are, twenty years later.

And the world seems a lot scarier.

So maybe, it could be time to meet a new Slayer.

And that’s all I can say.

Could we still get a origin story of Kendra Young?

"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?

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.

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.

A decade after the original.

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.

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.”

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.

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?

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.

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.”
