Roundup: Catching Up & Fanboy Heaven

Well, it's been a while and I've missed a lot of interesting bits of info. But, it's been quite an eventful week in geeky news.

The Dark Knight Rises:

First off, and possibly the most interesting news break this week was that info regarding the upcoming sequel to Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight, has been released. The cast has been revealed for the new heavy-hitting characters.

Anne Hathaway as Catwoman

A picture of Hathaway with her clothes on. Who new?

Yeah, you read that right. I think I just had a geek induced seizure. With the exception of someone like Natalie Portman or Rachel Weisz, I do believe Hathaway will be perfect for the role. She's practically got the sultry seductiveness aspect of the character mastered already.

Tom Hardy as Bane

It's about destiny Picard!

I'll be honest. Until a few weeks ago when this character's name was thrown around as a possible villain in the latest installment in Nolan's Batman films, I hadn't even heard of him. Now that I know the back story to Bane, (he literally breaks Batman), I find myself greatly anticipating what Nolan will do with this character.

Oh, and on a side note; is it just me, or does Nolan love to reuse his actors in different movies?

Liam Neeson Returns To Star Wars!

Upon reading this highly unexpected news this morning, I began to scream for joy. In my mind of course :P

So apparently The Clone Wars will be resurrecting Qui Gon Jinn, master to Obi-wan Kenobi all around awesome Jedi and one of The Phantom Menaces' redeeming qualities. Albeit temporarily. And as a vision. But nevertheless! Qui Gon is back, and Liam Neeson himself will be returning to voice his original character.

First Images For X-Men First Class:

I'll admit, I found the X-Men movies to be dreadfully awful. The acting was atrocious, the stories were rushed, boring and childish, and nothing anyone can say or do will change my opinion.

With that said, I'll give the upcoming prequel, First Class the benefit of the doubt. Here's the first two officially released images.

I don't care if you didn't like the movies either; if you don't know who this is, you might as well leave this site.

         Apparently everyone who thinks that Victoria's Secret models are 'mutated' were right.

 Fanboy DVD Pick:

O Brother, Where Art Though?

Highlarity ensues when three chain-gang convicts escape a life of menial labor and become a nationwide phenomenon as the traveling band, The Soggy Bottom Boys.

Completely Random: Here it is. Enjoy.

And lastly, here's the start of a new segment. "Reader Questions".

So without further adieu, here's the first question.

"What's your all time favorite song?"
