Batman, Home Alone, PS5 &MORE! | Week In Nerdom 02-14




The newly (officially) announced Chucky series just got another announcement. Jennifer Tilly will be involved with THIS side of the split.

Thomas Lennon will be playing Mr. Mxyzptlk in Supergirl’s 100th episode.

Stranger Things
New trailer… umm so everyone was right.


Matt Reeves has posted some screen test footage to social media. This new footage shows Robert Pattinson in the suit, but ALSO shows the bat-symbol on the suit and it looks to be made out of the Joe Chill gun, much like Kevin Smith wrote in Detective Comics #1000.

Warewolves Within
Ubisoft is looking to make a film adaptation of their popular VR game. They have brought in Mishna Wolff to write, Josh Ruben to direct, and have even got a couple of actors in Michael Chernus and Sam Richardson.

Honey I Shrunk the Kids
Rick Moranis is officially returning for the movie!


Apparently Sony wanted to include a Mirrorless camera with each console, but has now had to scrap the idea because of a supply issue with one of the key parts of the peripheral. Speculation around what the camera was for ties it to Sony VR2 which is supposed to launch a few months after the console.

Half Life: Alyx
Release date March 23

Comic Books/Books

Batman: The Adventure Continues
Paul Dini and Alan Burnett are writing a comic book that will continue the Animated series we all love so much. It won’t pick up immediately after the Animated Series ended, but it will begin before Jason Todd’s abduction and beating at the hands of the Joker. The book is set to release in April.

Dark Night’s Metal
Sequel series gets a title. Death Metal! Set to come from the Hell Arisen storyline currently going. Death Metal will begin May 13th and be a monthly book, minus August, and will conclude in November.

Rumor Mill

The Batman
Matt Reeves appears to be making the Batman movie we were supposed to get before BvS. Word is The Batman will take place in Bruce’s second year in his new skin. Which is what WB was rumored to be shooting for before Man Of Steel ruined WB’s comic book credibility.

That mystery release date next year in October that Sony just revealed might be Spider-Woman.
Could be a thing because with the Secret Invasion rumors, Spider-Woman factored pretty heavily into the comic… but then does that mean Sony and Marvel are getting cozier?

Green Lantern
Rumor has it that the Sinestro War is going to be the basis for the HBO Max series.

Superman & Lois
Potential spoiler…
New rumors (leaks?) claim that Martha Kent will die in the pilot episode. Previous rumors put the show long passed the death of Jon Kent, so this is the character motivation?

Star Trek
So many RUMORS!
Really they all boil down to CBS isn’t doing so well, they want to fire Alex Kurtzman. On top of all this, CBS All Access is said to be getting absorbed into ViacomCBS streaming app, with the official announcement coming at the end of this month.

Titans S3
Roy Harper, Lex Luthor, and Barbra Gordon rumored to be in the next season.

Poe Dameron
Lucasfilm looking to do a solo movie for Poe.

Home Alone
Macaulay Culkin might find his way into the reboot/lega-sequel. McCallister’s Security.

Donald Glover is reportedly reticent to reprise his role as Lando Calrissian. If that is the case, Disney is looking to replace him with Michale B Jordan.

Event Horizon
Remake? Paul WS Anderson to return to direct and possibly his wife Milla Jovovich.
