Yesterday in the Nerd Verse… April 17th, 2015

Yet another big name trailer dropped yesterday. This time, it was Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice. It was leaked a couple days ago, so WB released the HD version was released early. I’m really happy with Battfleck taking the mantle, and of course the DKR armored Batsuit. The jury’s still out, though. Let us know what you think. Source: YouTube

Seth Rogan has announced that Dominic Cooper (Howard Stark) will be getting the lead role, Jesse Custer, in the upcoming Preacher series on AMC. It’s about damn time AMC got a series worth watching; we still haven’t gotten over Low Winter Sun. Source: Twitter

Archie Comics may be hitting rock bottom here pretty soon. In a struggle to stay relevant, Archie books have crossed over with first Predator, and now…. Sharknado? The book debuts 7/22, the same day as Sharknado 3 – so you can successfully avoid both in one fell swoop. The Fiona Staples’ reboot can’t come soon enough. Source: Deadline

In less disappointing comic book news, Bruce Timm’s upcoming DC Animated film Gods and Monsters will be getting a comic book prequel. You can expect this book out in July, too. It’ll be drawn by Thony Silas, who is currently working on DC’s Batman Beyond 2.0 book. Source: DC Comics

Meanwhile, in the land of Should Woulda Coulda, Josh Harnett is regretting his decision to turn down the role of Batman in Nolan’s trilogy… as he should. Could you imagine this Penny Dreadful star as the Dark Knight? Source: Playboy (SFW)

The upcoming Carmageddon: Reincarnation game, which is a reboot of the popular 90’s series, has been delayed a month – coming out on May 21st, 2015. Chances are, if you’ve waited over 15 years to mow down pedestrians in suped-up vehicles, another month isn’t going to hurt. You’re probably a sociopath, either way, though. Source: Carmageddon

Attack on Titan had another trailer drop in anticipation for the August release in Japan. I don’t understand Japanese, but I don’t need to in order to know how dope this looks. If they can avoid the typical anime to movie cheese, then this could be a good movie. Source: YouTube

You didn’t think Star Wars news was over, did you? LEGO has announced that they will be adding to their line of build-able action figures, which included Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker. Joining them will be Obi-Wan Kenobi, General Grievous, Jango Fett and CC-2224. I’m all about the Grievous model. Source: WSJ
