Things We Saw Today: A Look at the First Poster and Costumes for Joss Whedon’s Avengers

Things We Saw Today

Take a look at our first glimpse of a live-action Hawkeye, as well as a rebooted Captain America costume. (At Comics Alliance)

The Huffington Post had a piece today calling for Hollywood (and geek culture at large) to acknowledge the role of geeky women. PREACH! Plus they mention us! Here’s a clip:

Geek women’s demands for attention, spaces, and products from the mainstream – not at all new – are beginning to finally be heard. What has been a vibrant, active, subculture with its own prominent voices, celebrities, groups, and events, is showing potential to go as mainstream as male geek culture. The first cracks within the media stronghold might be seen in the success of almost-feminist geek commentary such as io9 by Gawker and the emergence of The Mary Sue by Abrams media….It is patently ridiculous to pretend that women don’t read comics. That women don’t like sci fi. That women don’t want to play with lightsabers and swords. That the role of women in the genre is as decoration in a gold, metal bikini.

Lord of the Rings’ Sean Astin is set to voice Raphael in Nickelodeon’s CG reboot of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. And don’t they look cheery? (At Think McFly Think)


Another Lord of the Rings actor, Sean Bean defended a woman outside a bar, then was promptly punched in the face and stabbed. Don’t worry, he’s fine: after the incident he just went back into the bar, ordered another drink and the first aid kit. We’re not joking. (At Vancouver Sun)

The Teen Titans get the Breakfast Club treatment. You can practically smell the angst from here. (At So Geek Chic)

It’s the cuddliest scruffy Indiana Jones plushy we ever did see! (At Nerd Approved)
