Yesterday in the Nerd Verse… May 4th, 2015

May the 4th be with you, 2015!

The Simpsons has been picked up for 27th and 28th seasons, keeping the show on the air through 2017. I wonder if it is being kept on the air because of ratings or because cancelling it after all these years would be a pop culture travesty? Source: ScreenRant

Fan favorite Boba Fett will be getting his own movie, or Fetture film, and it will be the second Star Wars anthology installation due out in 2018. Rumors are pretty out of control over what the movie will actually be about, and as of right now nothing concrete has been revealed from the studio. Honestly it could be a Boba Fett/Ewok team up and people would still probably love it. Actually that sounds kind of great… Source: The Wrap

In a related story Josh Trank, who was originally set to direct the movie, has stepped down. He says it’s to pursue original creative projects, rumor says it’s because he was too intense and moody on the set of The Fantastic Four. Source: THR

Despite the fact that Bryan Singer addressed in an interview with the LA Times in 2011 that Cyclops and Havok are not brothers he revealed this photo of their parents on Instagram Monday. So they are brothers but Havok is the older one? Or they’re not brothers but they have the same parents? Or something. Source: Instagram

So an It remake is in the works and it will be directed by Cary Fukunaga. Normally I dread this kind of stuff but I’m pretty excited about this book being made into a non-miniseries movie for a whole new generation. Fukunaga has already cast the actor to play the part of Pennywise and it looks like Will Poulter (The Maze Runner) will be portraying the horror icon that made millions of people terrified of clowns.

Oh my GOD Annie Lebovitz took some AMAZING behind the scenes character photos for Star Wars: the Force Awakens, and in honor of Star Wars Day, Vanity Fair shared them with the world. I…have no words, just weird excited grunts. Source: Vanity Fair

Also released in the same batch of photos is the Gwendoline Christie, aka Brienne of Tarth, as Captain Phasma. She is big and evil and totally badass. Source: Vanity Fair

More cast photos came out for Suicide Squad. These ones feature the cast members in full costume but they are missing the Joker. Maybe the rumors are true and we actually were trolled with that last photo of Jared Leto. Source: Nerd Bastards via Just Jared

John Wick 2 has been announced, and Keanu Reeves, Chad Stahelski (director), Davod Leitch (director) and Derek Kolstad (screenplay) will be back. Source: Geek Tyrant
