It’s Sunday NIGHT, Nerdlings! That means the big SDCC 2014 announcements have all been made, stars have been blinded by flashes, and it’s time for the poor staff to clean up all the glitter, spandex, and whatever that is by NBC’S Hannibal booth… *Shudders*
The star power coming out of SDCC 2014 was so epic last night they created a White Dwarf and the cosplayers leveled up all the Nerdy trophies for Achievement in Awesome. My feeds have been ridiculously difficult to keep up with in the past few days as I tried to swipe quickly through Twitter, Tumbler, Instagram, and websites to get the best Nerdy news. Since it’s impossible to go through it all, I’ll just do a run down of the things I’m most excited to see.
We finally got our first look at Wonder Woman. Look at her! She is an AMAZON! She is sooooo not taking anyone’s crap. She looks hot (both figurative and literal) and is about to serve up some JUSTICE!
While I still feel some concern about what the actual movie will be like, I have to say, Concept and Costuming got it right. It was pretty funny to see all my feeds go nuts about Gal Gadot and then throw in a nod to the boys, Batman and Superman. DC’s top story on their website is all about Diana Prince and I’m please as punch to see it. Behold, your new Wonder Woman!
Marvel has been throwing news at us all weekend starting with our first official introduction to Agent Carter.
The Marvel Television panel hosted Hayley Atwell and several of the creators, including Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas, for Marvel’s newest series, Agent Carter. The show will begin in 1946 before SHIELD was founded and like her One-Shot, we’ll see Peggy adapting to life after WWII. The show hopes to portray the harsh realities of a post war world, which many women faced after the men returned. Skilled and competent women were displaced and expected to return to their roles in the home. Peggy Carter will have to fight to find her place in a man’s world but she’s not alone. Peggy will definitely encounter other women facing the same dilemma. What remains to be seen are what choices they will make when faced with stepping back into old ideas or trying to fit into an unappealing future. I’m really hoping to see some seriously conflicted heroines and grey area, badass lady villains.
