Week In Nerdom 8-23 - Spider-Man ain't done yet! and more things worth d...

New song from In Cauda Venenum (Sept 27) “Dignity”

Alt Rock stalwarts are putting out a new record. Their first on new label Napalm Records, called The Things We Can’t Stop (Sept 13). First single on the record is “Shine.” Second single, “The Devil We Know.”

Corey Taylor
Wants to work on a solo project starting in 2021…

Released a deluxe version of In Our Wake on the 16th. New song “Generation” joins 6 other new tracks.
Confirming (kinda) what we talked about last ep, showrunner Cam Welsh says on Twitter that Lobo is “far from dead.”

Showrunner Damon Lindelof clarified some things about the new series. Most notably that the original COMIC will be canon, and this series takes place AFTER the events therein. Which is interesting because that is contrary to what we have been told previously, AND since the show is still being billed as a “quasi-sequel.”

Director Rick Famuyiwa will be coming back once season 2 begins production October 7th… before season 1 even premieres?!?

Cowboy Bebop
CASTING: Elaina Satine from the gifted has been cast as Julia for the live action remake. Cue the outrage…

Legends of Tomorrow
Brandon Routh and Courtney Ford (The Atom and Nora Darhk) are being written off the show. Producers say they might come back in future seasons...
First things first, Sony has officially ended their sharing relationship they had with Disney/Marvel. What once got Marvel 5% first day box office and all the merchandise from Spider-Man, has now become a thing of the past. And Sony CAN’T even reference the MCU stuff… how they plan on dealing with that is beyond me.
NOW, director Jon Watts, may not be returning to the franchise.
Some industry analysts are blaming Dark Phoenix?
BREAKING: New Rumor (being fueled by Tom Holland’s IG) claims Disney has returned with a new offer, that Sony may have accepted!

The franchise is NOT getting rebooted… it is getting continued. Lana Wachowski (for those confused she was formerly Larry) has signed on to make another movie in the series. Lilly (formerly Andy) will not be part of the project it seems, though Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss will also be returning. So far that is all that has been confirmed, though it sounds like they want to go into production in early 2020.

Halloween Kills/Ends
John Carpenter is returning to score the 2 movies… though strangely not to produce. At least not yet.

Bond 25
Officially titled “No Time To Die”

Alien XMas
Jon Favreau, fresh off the Mandalorian, is now apparently working with the Chiodo Brothers to adapt their 2015 children’s book about a war between Santa and an invading alien horde.


Mortal Kombat 11
DLC trailer… Joker replaces Ash Williams.

Cyberpunk 2077
At Gamescom senior concept artist, Marthe Jonkers, said that multiplayer for the game, which CD Projekt Red has hinted at in the past, isn’t coming together the way they want it to. So it potentially won’t make it into the launch of the game.
They also plan on showing some gameplay next week in a stream on their Twitch and Mixer channels.

Predator: Hunting Grounds
Gameplay trailer from IllFonic.

Death Stranding
I just don’t even know anymore…

Comic Books

Marvel 2099
The 2099 Universe is getting an expansion. Starting in Amazing Spider-Man #33 Marvel is looking to give us more of the future as they see it. Adding Venom and Conan to the cast of 2099 characters.

G. Willow Wilson
Wilson is set to leave Wonder Woman in a few months, with Steve Orlando taking over once she leaves.
