Are Action movies ready for a revival? We answer this and more on an all new episode of…The Surly Nerd!
Is this the end for the Sandman film?
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After our prelude, we head into comics where we talk all about DC going back to a more continuity based reset. We also head into Marvel news talking about Civil War II, Loki trying to become president and close out level one with a discussion about Joss Whedon tackling Captain America and what they can do to make Steve Rogers great again.
In game industry news, we jump into Street Fighter 5 and what Capcom is doing to stop cheaters. We also discuss the ending of Lionhead studios and share some of our favorite Lionhead memories as well as have a discussion about the future of the Xbox One in terms of upgradeability – and James rants about how much he hates the new 3DS. The curtain falls on level 2 with a lengthy discussion about Resident Evil and how important it was to modern gaming.
Over in the world of entertainment, Tony gets his fanboy on over new Harry Potter announcements, James can’t stop laughing about a Men in Black/Jump street crossover and we get sad over Joseph Gordon-Levitt leaving the Sandman film. We also discuss the disaster that was Gods of Egypt and talk about why a solo VENOM movie could be great or horrible.
Our epilogue this week is all about Action Films and if we will see an influx of new titles thanks to Mad Max. As always, we appreciate all our adventurers who listen to the show every week and we look forward to your feedback on what we discuss! (email@example.com!)

Comic-con, Comic-con, San Diego Comic-Con tiiiiiime!
How excited we are for the Deadpool trailer
Greetings adventurers, it’s an all new episode of The Surly Nerd! Join us as we wade through the plethora of news coming out of San Diego Comic-con. So much happened in the last week in the world of nerdy news but does ANY of it have to do with comic books? We kick our show off with that thought as we go into the winners of the Eisner Awards and from there move into what’s new for Superman in his comics as well as Marvels plans for their newest acquisition – Angela.
We slide from those comic topics over to the world of video games. John Romero tells us what he thinks about the PC vs Console war, we get deep into what makes HALO a true franchise and we bitch more and more about Ubisofts sexism. We try to talk about happier things in Entertainment News with Evil Dead television series but just end up angrier from where we started. Avengers theories, Batman V Superman rants and a discussion about the Deadpool “leaked” trailer close out our show. Get comfy with us as we get into super geeky comic discussions on episode 101 of The Surly Nerd.
