Unless you live under a rock, or ya know…had other responsibilities, you’ve probably heard and/or seen the new Avengers: Infinity War trailer that dropped today.
As if there were any doubt, it looks amazing. For all it’s wonderful inclusions, I’d like to know what you all think!
An even better question (please leave your answer in the comments below) is, what character would you like to see introduced in this movie that has not yet been in a MCU film?
My vote? Well, I’m going to cheat here because it’s less of a singular character and more of a group. How much would you all freak out if, say, in the post credits sequence, a certain ship materializes out of a certain negative zone with a certain family of Four…. OR…better yet, a slow zoom to Thor, laying unconscious on the ground, as we close in on his face, what looks like a rocky hand pinches his nose and leans in over his face, Thor comes to, flailing then as lucidity comes and his vision starts to correct, he says softly, “Korg? What has happened to you?” to which our ORANGE rocky friend replies, “Korg? That’s the last time I try mouth-ta-mouth resuscitation with a guy that calls himself a thunder god…” The camera zooms back out as we see the rest of the FANTASTIC FOUR come into view!!!
With the release of the Avengers: Infinity War trailer dropping earlier this week, and the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi due out in a few days, nerd-dom is at its highest of levels right now. And while I cannot wait to see The Last Jedi in theaters on opening day, I’ve come to realize that I am more excited for Avengers than I am for Star Wars.
To some, this may seem sacrilegious. The franchises aren’t even in the same category or genre. How can they even be compared?

In case you weren’t aware, last May, Marvel comics inroduced a new hero to the Iron Family (hey, if Bruce Wayne can have a Bat Family, why not Zoidberg?), Riri Williams. Riri is a 15 yr old girl with an advanced genius intellect. She just so happens to have a strong interest in becoming an inventor and engineer.
She’s so smart, in fact, that she is awarded an early scholarship to MIT’s prestigious campus where, in her spare time, she secretly designs and builds her own Iron Suit out of materials acquired from the campus. She does get caught, but manages to escape in her suit, where, while acclimating herself to the operations of her new armor, she travels to New Mexico. While there, she assists in the apprehending a pair of escaped convicts, but damages her suit in the process. Upon her return, Tony Stark, the Iron Man himself, hears of her achievements, and contacts her, offering to take her under his
wing jetpack, and train her as Ironheart.
Now, the current rumor mill has Ironheart making her big screen debut in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War Part 2. However, in an unofficial yet excellently portrayed manner, we get to see her a little earlier than 2019.
Every year, as a part celebration of Pi Day (March 14th/3.14), which also happens to be the day they announce Continue reading Ironheart Gets A Live Action Debut
Just a heads-up. This is a two-part review. Part A, my feelings on the film, spoiler free. Part B, my feelings complete with spoilers. Continue reading Avengers: Age Of Ultron – Spoiler-Free Thoughts/Spoiler-y Review
And it’s perhaps the best one yet! I can’t believe it’s less than 2 months away…SO EXCITE!
Here at Nerd-Base, we not only appreciate the amazing cosplayers, but we also love the nerdy ladies as well! Not to say that cosplayers can’t be nerdy, or vice versa, but sometimes there’s amazing, beautiful, nerdy women who aren’t into cosplaying, and we want to celebrate them as well!
Meet our very first Nerd Babe – Jess! Not only is she nerdy & gorgeous, but she’s smart, talented, and caring. I first met Jess when I worked at a very popular radio station in Philadelphia (93.3 WMMR, specifically Preston & Steve). We were on a promotions team together, and even did an Avengers themed photoshoot together a few years back (which you’ll see some photos from that shoot in this article)! If this is the droid you’re looking for, read on to find out more about Jess and see some brilliant photos of this Nerd Babe!
In case you’re not savvy to the current Marvel Now! stories, there’s a mini-series going on now that, although a pretty fun read, is pretty obviously being made solely to explain who the character was at the end of Avengers (Thanos, who is the main antagonist of the Infinity series), and how he ties into the Guardians of the Galaxy movie which comes out next year (READ: Filling in all the folks on what GotG is and why they should be excited about it), of which Thanos is rumored to be the main villain in.
Infinity is more or less a “world ending” event tie-ing in the stories of the Avengers, New Avengers, Uncanny Avengers, Iron Man, and Guardians of the Galaxy from the past year. The effects of the Infinity storyline will lead in to a comic event titled Inhumanity detailing the after-effects of the famous Terrigen Mists covering the world and activating dormant “Inhuman” genes in individuals around the world. So, expect a few new heroes/villains to pop up over the next few months!
Well, issue number one is out, and it has perhaps the best Skottie Young cover yet, and I’ll be honest, the only reason I wrote this post is because I saw it and got so excited I felt the compulsion to share!
So, if any of you find the actual art, or a decent sized print of this, you either buy it for me and I’ll love you forever, or at least email me and point me in the right direction, because this is amazing!!
