Halloween Special: Introducing the Nerds Assemble Podcast

Introducing the Nerds Assemble podcast

Bringing you opinions on the latest news for films, comics, TV, videogames and more – Nerds Assemble saw its first Halloween episode go live this week.

In this week’s episode discover what our regular listeners think of some of the top horror films, TV series, videogames, novels and comics of all time, and of course what the NA hosts think of this elect bunch of titles.

Classics up for discussion in this Halloween themed episode include:

  • Bram Stoker’s Dracula
  • The Fog
  • Sandman
  • Dawn of the Dead
  • Dead Space
  • Resident Evil 2
  • Final Destination
  • and more

Plus check out what we think of Matthew Vaughn stepping down as director of X-Men: Days of Future Past - is Bryan Singer, the man that brought us the first two X-Men, films going to step up to the role of director? Or is someone else going to take-on the role – after all, Superman Returns was no walk in the park.

And what is happening with the renewal of legal action against Marvel in regards to Jack Kirby’s creations (the same lawyer opening up the case afresh is the same lawyer representing the Siegel family in the DC Superman case)? Like so many, we thought Kirby’s case had been settled – apparently not, according to one of the biggest names in IP law in the US.

Finally: are we panicking about rumours of Wii U shortages for launch day? Two of us have it pre-ordered and we are dreading having an email coming through that says we won’t be getting our console on launch – and didn’t Nintendo learn anything from the launch of the original Wii? Hit the link below to find out.
