Corona takes the square! | Week In Nerdom



Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame
The induction ceremony for this year has been postponed indefinitely. Originally scheduled to begin March 20th.

Rage Against the Machine
Postpones tour dates from March 26 to May 20.

Greg Pusciato
New solo record will feature 3 noteworthy skinsmen: Chris Pennie (Dillinger), Ben Koller (Converge), and Chris Hornbrook (Poison the Well). Child Soldier: Creator of God is set for release later this year.

The Danzig and Only camp are apparently hard up for cash. They approved a picture book last year, “Scream With Me: A Visual History of the Misfits”, and they are now saying the book infringes on their copyright of the Fiend Skull design.

The Exploited
NOT cancelling anything. Official Statement “We ain’t Fucking Green Day!”


The coronavirus HASN’T effected one thing, wrestling. WWE has announced that RAW, SmackDown, and Wrestlemania are all still going forward as planned, just without a live audience. And looks like they will be broadcast from the Orlando training facility. Though, FS1 has announced that their Backstage program will be postponed as part of a studio wide delay for at least one week. The XFL, though, has been cancelled for the remainder of the season, with a promise to return next season and “in future years.”

The Conners
Ozzy Osbourne and his wife Sharon are set to guest star in the March 17th episode of the show.


Spider-Man Spin-off
Sony has brought in Roberto Orci (Amazing Spider-Man 2) to write a to be specified Spider-Man adjacent movie. Though some reports are saying it will only be loosely related to Spidey.

Vin Diesel has confirmed that Sony is hoping to start a Valiant Movie Universe, starting with Bloodshot.

More movies postponed for the scare: Mulan, New Mutants, Antlers, Fast and Furious 9(1yr), A Quiet Place 2, Peter Rabbit 2, The Lovebirds, and Blue Story. Shang Chi, Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Carnival Row, The Flash, Little Mermaid, Home Alone, Nightmare Alley, Peter Pan and Wendy, Shrunk, and Riverdale production. ALSO: WonderCon and E3 have officially been postponed.

Space Jam 2
BTS leak shows off The Mask, and Voldemort. Looks like the rumor was true!


With the “Postponement” (cancellation) there have been reports that there may be plans in place for the Electronics Software Association to do an all digital version of the convention. Other reports say that Microsoft is planning their own digital only version of their planned presentation.

Mortal Kombat 11
Spawn Kombat Kast rocks my FACE!

Comic Books/Books

More Coronavirus
Comic Cons postponed:
Kansas City’s Planet Comic Con
SuperCon in Florida (moved to July 3-5)

Oni Press offices in Portland temporarily closed.

Rumor Mill

The Flash
Now they are afraid that Mirror Master will be gender-swapped.

Silent Hills
Sony is reportedly mediating the split between Kojima Productions and Konami. According to the rumor that announcement we were supposed to get this week (and DIDN’T!) was supposed to be about the fact that the Silent Hills game is back on. With the Silent Hill reboot in the works it COULD have some legs… or it could be wishful thinking.

Death Stranding
“Something Death Stranding” is rumored to be announced sometime this year… well that’s specific!
