Patton Oswalt

  1. Twitter Harassment Is Not Just a Joss Whedon Problem: The Age of Ultron Director Explains Why He Deleted His Account

    Buzzfeed has asked the Avengers: Age of Ultron director why he left Twitter, and "harassment from feminists" was not his answer.

  2. Patton Oswalt Is Back With a Revelation From His Summer Away From Twitter

    Sadly, it's not that he's a wizard.

    Patton Oswalt had an incredibly visible Twitter presence until June of this year. He spent his time telling jokes, getting crap for telling jokes, joking that he'd made jokes that would've gotten him crap, and getting crap for those jokes. He needed a break from all the crap, so he took the summer off, and now he's back to tell us what we're all missing in the real world.

  3. Patton Oswalt Will Guest Star on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

    Guess I'm going to start watching SHIELD again.

    Despite having an entire comic book universe (which there's usually a conspicuous lack of) to draw on for its nerd-cred, Agents of SHIELD is going straight to the source by having Patton Oswalt guest star on the show. He'll be taking on the role of agent Eric Koenig and likely hugely disappointing everyone by not becoming a series regular.

  4. Patton Oswalt to Guest Star on SHIELD, Compares Show to The Wire

    Okay, so he's not comparing them in quality but in content, but still... The Wire?

  5. Patton Oswalt Turns Thor and Star Trek Into Indie Movies

    Moustaches, sobbing, sepia. Repeat.

    The 2014 Spirit Awards were last Saturday, and Patton Oswalt lightened up the evening with a sketch pitching the Indie-Izer, an app that "takes any big budget Hollywood crowd-pleasing blockbuster and turns it into a micro-budgeted mumblecore digital download.”

  6. Jerry Seinfeld Asked Patton Oswalt Who His Favorite Superhero Is, and How He Would Kill Superman—in a DeLorean

    We're a little surprised by his answer.

    Comedy nerds are probably already familiar with Jerry Seinfeld's brilliant webseries Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, but I think regular nerds will like this week's episode too. It features Patton Oswalt talking about his favorite superhero, killing Superman, and they drive around in a DeLorean.

  7. What Patton Oswalt Just Did on Twitter is Amazing

    Patton Oswalt is very good at Twitter. #RealTalk

    The above tweet is funny. I promise you. Out of context it looks like comedian Patton Oswalt decided to go on an Orson Scott Card level rant, but instead what he did was actually brilliant. Yesterday Oswalt sent out a string of tweets that pushed the limits of the medium, proving why he's one of the best there is.

  8. Check Out Patton Oswalt’s Animated Parks and Rec Filibuster [Video]

    The female part is still pretty underwritten, though.

    What's better than seeing Patton Oswalt's stunning eight minute pitch for a Star Wars/Marvel Universe/Clash of the Titans film franchise crossover? Seeing it animated for the Nerdist Youtube channel by Daniel Spellman in honor of Geek Week. This is everything I ever wanted in anything.

  9. Axe Cop Voice Cast Will Chop Your Heads Off With How Great It Is

    Fox didn't consult us about the cast of Axe Cop, but if they did this is probably what we would have come up with.

    Did you know that Nick Offerman wasn't officially Axe Cop until yesterday? I mean -- we've seen heard him be Axe Cop, but no one could officially say it until yesterday because of Offerman's deal with NBC and Axe Cop is a Fox project. Now, though, not only is that thing we already knew confirmed to be a thing that is, there are even more Axe Cop casting details and they're all amazing.

  11. Onion A.V. Club Animates Patton Oswalt’s Story of a Magical Black Man

    Patton Oswalt Tells the Story Of A Magical Black Man Who Haunted His Early Career

    Patton Oswalt is known for a lot of things like acting, writing, and voicing cartoon rodents, but he is first and foremost a brilliant standup comedian. That's not always an easy life, especially when you're first starting out. In the first episode of the new series Stand Down by The Onion A.V. Club, Oswalt recounts the tale of a magical black man who haunted his early career. The story is better than the animation itself, but they come together nicely.

    May The Force Be With You

    In case you're one of the five people who hasn't seen it yet, last month Patton Oswalt improvised an eight-minute rant on what star Wars: Episode VII should be like (keywords: Boba Fett, Tony Stark, X-Men, robot spider Chewbacca) for an episode of Parks and Recreation. And now Isaac Moores has created an animated version of that pitch. It's geek-o-licious. Enjoy. (via: Kotaku) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

    Things We Saw Today

    "It's rare that you have a poster that is just Chris Hemsworth shooting on the set," said Marvel president of production Kevin Feige. "But he just looks like Thor. We just put in some lightning, and he's got his hammer and you're there." Duh, because Hemsworth IS Thor. (via USA Today)

    Okay, folks, we officially need something to brighten our day, and we suspect you're right there with us. So big thanks to Entertainment Weekly's Jef Castro for bringing us this poster of Patton Oswalt's idea of what Star Wars Episode VII would look like. From Moon Knight to Spider Robot Chewbacca, Oswalt's amazing eight minute diatribe outlining a pop-culture orgy for the ages from Parks and Rec is represented nearly in its entirety on this incredible poster, which is frankly just what we could use right now. Keep reading to get a load of the whole shebang.

  15. Patton Oswalt’s Star Wars Filibuster is the Best Thing You’ll See Today

What was said rant/filibuster about? His idea for Star Wars Episode VII, with a few surprising twists mixed in.

  16. Watch the Penguin Call Batman Out On His Whole “I Don’t Kill People” Thing [VIDEO]

    Holy Rusted Metal Batman!

    CollegeHumor's Favorite Funny Videos

    For someone who's so adamant about not killing bad guys, Batman's body count is awfully high. Luckily, Patton-Oswalt-as-the-Penguin is on hand to make Batman acknowledge his hypocrisy. Or try, anyway. (via: /Film) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  17. I’ll Chop Your Heads Off! Fox Announces Axe Cop Release Date

    If you think a comic written by a five-year-old and then drawn by his 29-year-old older brother would be awesome, you would be right. That's the story behind Axe Cop. It started in 2010 as a webcomic written by then five-year-old Malachai Nicolle and drawn by his older brother Ethan Nicolle. It's grown into a comic book published by Dark Horse Comics, a series of animated web videos, and now a full-fledged animated series. Fox has announced the show will premiere on Saturday, July 27th as part of their new Animation Domination High Definition line up.

  18. Story Time With The State’s Kevin Allison, Host of the Risk! Podcast

    Kevin Allison is probably best known for his work with the sketch comedy group The State, which also featured the likes of Michael Ian Black, Thomas Lennon, and many more. When The State broke up, Kevin found himself in a situation a lot of us find ourselves in when a major part of our life comes to a close: He didn't know what to do next. Allison now hosts the popular storytelling podcast Risk!, but the road that got him there wasn't an easy one. Allison was nice enough to talk with us about The State, storytelling, and the process behind Risk!

  19. This Woman Would Like To Replace Laura Linney Introducing Downton Abbey On PBS [VIDEO]

    Warning: May Contain Feelings

    I was inducted into the Downton Abbey cult last year and can now completely understand what all the fuss was about. And I am absolutely quivering with anticipation of Season 3 premiering on PBS's Masterpiece Classic tomorrow night! So it was a happy coincidence I came upon this video on Patton Oswalt's Twitter feed. It features Janie Haddad Tompkins in her hopes of replacing Laura Linney as the person who introduces Downton Abbey on PBS. Or, getting back to her old gig, as the case may be. Enjoy and enjoy the new episode of Downton tomorrow! Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  20. We Know Halloween Is Over, But These Are Too Good Not to Share

    Fans Do Cool Things

    Hurricane Sandy may have mucked up Halloween here in New York City (the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade was cancelled for the first time in its history. *single tear*), but that doesn't mean people here and elsewhere didn't still have fun. Here are some of our favorite costumes (and pumpkins!) from around the 'net.
