Shockingly, there are things that happened in places other than the San Diego Comic Con. Once you’ve recovered your monocle, which certainly popped off your face in shock at this truth, read on.
? The World War Z movie is apparently so fucked that star Brad Pitt refuses to speak to director Marc Forster. God, I just love debacles. (Via Blastr)
? The Rock says the rumors of the Rock maybe possibly playing Lobo in a live-action movie are true. So… it’s true that he might possibly play Lobo. Of course, since DC/WB has already promised there would be no DC movies other than Man of Steel between now and 2015, I wouldn’t start any fan pages just yet.
? Since Injustice has been my biggest pleasant surprise from the con, it would be rude of me not to share this 15-minute gameplay video narrated by Ed Boon just because it actually came out a week ago at EVO 2012. Enjoy.
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.
