Elektra and Black Widow Stunt Doubles Film Epic Fight Scene

Lauren Mary Kim is the stunt double for Elodie Yung who plays Elektra in the Netflix series DareDevil and, Amy Johnston is the Stunt double for Scarlett Johansson who we all know plays Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Together they are responsible for making these two awesome female characters look bad ass on screen. Which leads to the question who do you think would win in an on screen battle Nerd Nation? Do you think Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow would be the winner or do you think Elodie Yung’s Elektra is tougher? I definitely think it would be awesome to watch and hopefully one day we could see the Avengers collide (then eventually team up with) the Defenders.

Karl Urban In Talks To Play Dredd Again

Back in May it was announced that a live action Judge Dredd TV series was in the works titled Judge Dredd: Mega City One. If you missed that story then go ahead and click here to check it out. Not many details were given at the time, not even who would be playing Dredd himself. Well for those of us that loved the 2012 Dredd film there may be some amazing news in store for us very shortly. According to Karl Urban himself, he has been in talks with producers to reprise his role as Judge Dredd in the new Mega City One TV show that is currently in development. After watching the 2012 Dredd movie I honestly can’t picture anyone else in that role.

Spider-Man E3 Game Play Trailer

It has been exactly one year since the much anticipated Spider-Man game was teased for the PlayStation 4 at E3 2016. This year we were hoping to actually be able to see some real game play footage of the game and get a possible release date. Though we didn’t get an official release date we do know that it will tentatively be available sometime in 2018. However, the best part of Sony’s E3 2017 presentation was of course the 9 minute game play demo of the up coming Spider-Man game. The amount of content that they showed off in nine minutes was amazing and the game it’s self looks absolutely beautiful. As a major fan of Spider-Man, I personally can’t wait to get my hands on this game.

Marvel’s Black Panther Official Teaser Trailer

Marvel has released their first official teaser trailer for the much anticipated Black Panther stand alone movie. T’Challa, the new ruler of the advanced kingdom of Wakanda, must defend his land from being torn apart by enemies from outside and inside the country. Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, and Lupita Nyong’o, and is Directed by Ryan Coogler. The cinematography looks amazing. This is definitely one beautiful looking movie. The trailer is filled with action, excitement and a bit of mystery. This is most definitely one of the most anticipated super hero movies of the year. 

NEW Marvel’s Spider-Man Series Sneak Peek

I don’t know about you Nerd Nation but I just can’t get enough of the web head. Lucky for us Marvel and Disney have released an awesome first look at the brand new Marvel’s Spider-Man animated series coming to Disney XD. Personally I have loved almost every single Spider-Man animated series that has come out, especially the ones from Disney. Spectacular Spider-Man was a great but short lived series and I enjoyed Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man though it focused a little too much on the slap stick comedy for my taste. However, this new Spider-Man series looks like a mix between the two so I definitely have high hopes for it.

Hellboy Hell Water Whiskey

Now this is some whiskey meant only for the demon spawn of Satan…or just you and your friends. Have you ever wanted to drink a fine bottle of whiskey themed after a demonic comic book anti-hero? Well then you’re in luck because there is now a Hellboy themed whiskey that you can have for your very own. It’s called HellBoy Hell Water and it is actually 66.6 proof. No joke. I don’t know about you Nerd Nation but I definitely need to get my hands on some of this if only just to say I tried it. 

Judge Dredd TV Series in the Works

Great news Judge Dredd fans, it looks like there is a TV series based on our favorite futuristic law bringer currently in the works. Personally we here at Nerdgasm Needs are huge fans of the 2012 Dredd film and have been eagerly waiting for a sequel. Though this is not a direct sequel to the movie, fans should still be pretty excited about this announcement. Honestly, an on going TV series might actually be a little better avenue for Dredd especially with so much content already written in the comic series. This has the potential to be one of the best comic booked based series on TV if it is done right. Also be sure to check out the official poster below.

Marvel’s The Defenders Official Trailer

The official trailer for the Marvel and Netflix series The Defenders is finally here! It’s been 2 years since the DareDevil series first premiered on Netflix and things haven’t slowed down since. Finally DareDevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, and Iron Fist will all team up to save the city and the world. I don’t know about you Nerd Nation but I am more than excited to see the continuation of their story as individuals and to see them fight together as a team. The trailer it’s self is dark and gritty just like most of the individual series have been, so you will feel right at home with it.
