Another clip from next week’s Tron: Legacy DVD has leaked onto the nettertubes, and unlike the last one, this very specifically teases a Tron 3 with a conversation between its two (assumed) antagonists. Now, we all knew Dillinger Jr. was going to be the major bad guy in the next one, but this clip indicates the return of my favorite Tron character of all as his partner — the MCP. I’m not going to lie, when I heard its voice (and can anyone tell if that’s David Warner or not?) I got so excited my pants disintegrated. (Via /Film)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
