Henry Cavill to return as Superman? | Week In Nerdom 03-06



Phil Collins era Genesis to reunite for a tour. The first in 13 years. All in UK, and only about 2.5 weeks worth, for now.


Kids in the Hall
In the era of remakes and reboots, here is one that DESERVES to come back! Amazon is taking the honor of being the platform to bring back the classic sketch comedy show from Canada. They have ordered 8 episodes, with all original cast members (Dave Foley, Kevin McDonald, Bruce McCulloch, Mark McKinney and Scott Thompson) making a return.

The Last of Us
HBO is developing an adaptation of the popular horror game. Craig Mazin (Chernobyl) will write and EP, alongside Niel Druckmann, who created the game. Carolyn Strauss will also executive produce along with Evan Wells, president of game development studio Naughty Dog. The project is a co-production with Sony Pictures Television and in association with PlayStation Productions. The project is the first television series from PlayStation Productions.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Taika Waititi is a busy boy. He is doing TWO animated series based on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, one based on the “world of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” and another based on the Oompa Loompas.
Not only did Netflix say that they would retain the “spirit” of the Roald Dahl book, but they also said that this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship with the Roald Dahl Story Company. Could we be seeing a serialized version of Matilda,” “The BFG,” “James and the Giant Peach,” or any other beloved Roald Dahl story?

Premieres: May 11 DCU, May 12 CW

Snoop Dogg is producing a series based on the books which are an adaptation of Sherlock Holmes.


New Mutants
Officially rated PG-13 by the MPAA.

No Time To Die
James Bond has been delayed until November. The new release dates are Nov.12 in the UK, Nov. 25 US, and TBD elsewhere.

The Batman

Despite Coronavirus worries, the powers that be at E3 are still holding the event in June… at least until further notice.

Comic Books/Books

Emerald City Comic Con
The powers that be at ECCC have announced that they too will continue as planned for their convention. That being said, Oni Press and Dark Horse, both, have announced they will no longer be attending due to coronavirus concerns.

Rumor Mill

Green Arrow and the Canaries
May should be the time of decisions, according to rumor.

Tom Ellis has reportedly renegotiated his contract to include the potential of a 6th season.

Shazam! 2
Superman rumored to be in the movie. ALSO rumored to be played by none other than Henry Cavill!! The Rock just might get his wish.

Batman Game
NOT an Arkham game… GOOD!

New set pictures show a suspicious female character. Which is fueling rumors about either a female Loki or the Enchantress. Further supported by rumored casting of Cailey Flemming as “Young Sylvie.” Possibly Sylvie Lushton?
