Wow, it has been an incredibly slow nerd news week. Of course, every time I say that, something huge gets announced, so by the end of the day we might learn that JJ Abrams has signed on to direct Star Wars Episodes VII-IX or something. For now, here’s some news bites, trailers, casting announcements, etc. from the week that I didn’t get around to writing about.

The Avengers/Captain America 2

Chris Evans talks about Captain America 2, and says Captain America’s new costume in The Avengers was Joss Whedon’s idea.

Here’s a video from the Captain America Blu-ray that has a few seconds of  footage from The Avengers. There’s also some cool promo artwork in the article as well.

Thor 2

The latest name rumored to be sitting in the director’s chair on the Thor sequel is Patty Jenkins, who directed Monster with Charlize Theron and the pilot for the critically-acclaimed series The Killing.

Iron Man 3

The film may be shot in Wilmington, North Carolina.

Kick-Ass 2

Don’t expect a sequel anytime soon.

Hellboy 3

Ron Perlman is urges you to write to your Congressman if you ever want to see this one.

Star Wars

Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows

Check out a promo pic of the entire cast – including Depp as Barnabas Collins.

Finally, here’s a hilarious clip of the Dr. Who parody “Inspector Spacetime” from the season premiere of Community. I’m sure we’ll be seeing more clips of this throughout the upcoming season.
