Loki Solo Movie? Be Burdened With Glorious Purpose and Sign The Petition to Make it So

loki-wearing-loki

What does it say about humanity when we, the fans, idolize villains more than the heroes? I really can’t imagine the answer, or maybe I just don’t want to. Whether I’m awe inspired at the seething madness and animalistic behavior of Heath Ledger’s Joker, (Dark Knight) or swooning over the charm, guile and burdened purpose of Tom Hiddleston’s Loki (Thor, Avengers) I’m finding it’s so good to be bad. I guess Darth Helmet (Spaceballs) put it best when he eloquently said, “Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.”

Speaking of Tom Hiddleston, the fan loyalty to him and his Loki character is fierce. Humanity has pledged their undying allegiance to him. Given the response his appearance at this summer’s San Diego Comic-Con drew from the Hall, we (apparently) do wish to be ruled by him. Well, at least the hordes of naive fan-girls do. Anyway, you trickster supporters are about to get Loki’d. Provided your faithfulness rings true, that is. What am I talking about? Well, more than 11,000 people have signed a petition demanding that Loki get the solo movie from Marvel Studios he deserves.

Here’s a quote from change.org:

We feel Loki (as portrayed by Tom Hiddleston), due to the astounding following both the character and actor have earned as a result of the Marvel films, more than warrants further exploration of his story,” the petition at Change.org states. “We believe such an endeavor would not only be profitable and successful, but provide a larger view for general audiences of the incredibly complex and diverse personality a well-known villain of the Marvel universe is gifted with. To explore this darker side of the Thor storyline would be to give credit to a compelling individual, his remarkable portrayer and an appreciative audience that feels a fierce loyalty to both in an unprecedented way. Simply put: He has an army.

Nobody can deny that Loki’s portrayal in the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes across as a mischievous and understandable villain, but his own movie? I don’t think so. Too many other marvel characters that need a solo movie. On the other hand, to see a movie thru the villains eyes? That’d be mildly interesting. That’s never been done before in a comic book movie, it could change everything.

If you wish to sign the petition, go to this LINK

Nerdy Bits: Church of Yoda, The Dark Knight: Hangover Edition, Conan O’Brian Kills Himself in ‘HALO 4′, and MOAR!

Destiny_Nickelsen_Injustice_Harley_Quinn

Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time. We here at Nerd Bastards try to bring you the best bits of news and nerdery the webz has to offer, with a bit of snark thrown in. But sometimes not everything makes the cut. Monday through Friday we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks. You can submit items to Nerdy Bits by emailing us at nerdybits@nerdbastards.com

Above: I’m never a fan of the constant redesigning of Harley Quinn’s costume, until I see a particularly damn good cosplay like Destiny Nickelsen’s here. Check out her Facebook page for progess shots of how she made the getup, inspired by Harley’s outfit in Injustice: Gods Among Us. [Geek Tyrant]

Gorgeous, geeky makeup designs are all the rage but these from Kirsty Childs are really something to behold. Above is her Batman design, but head to Fashionably Geek for some stunning eye makeups inspired by Thor, Superman, The Riddler, and more.

Y’know, with all this Star Wars spinoff talk I think we should be seriously discussing a Lando movie and the chances of this kid starring in it. Just look at this little dude, you know it to be true. [Geek Tyrant]

Yoda-One-for-Me

Faithful members of the Church of Yoda, we Nerd Bastards are. [Nerd Approved]

Recently diagnosed with terminal cat cancer, this kitty took the only option left for him to support his wife and kittens after his death: cooking meth. Actually, no, this is Instagram famous cat, George the Kat, sporting his best Breaking Bad cosplay, but I know you wanted to believe even a cat would go bad for the good of his family. [Laughing Squid]

Batman-Cosplay

Once, Batman, The Joker, and Bane went to Las Vegas and had and incredibly wild night, now only if they could remember. [Fashionably Geek]

Unsurprisingly, Neftlix hit House of Cards already has its rap tribute courtesy of nerd rapper, Adam Warrock. Spoiler free, if in case you somehow haven’t watched it all yet. [Geek Tyrant]

It’s the Avengers/Breakfast Club mashup you didn’t realize you wanted, but now that it’s here, you’re unsure how you lived without it. [Laughing Squid]

In this latest installment of Clueless Gamer with Conan O’Brian it’s time for HALO 4. Watch as Conan becomes familiar with everything we’ve always loved about the HALO franchise, Cortana for instance, and it’s especially satisfying when Conan meets the characters he and Andy voiced for the game. [Nerdist]

And now, T-Shirts You Gotta Buy…TODAY! (Before they’re gone.)

Nerd Art Dump- Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem, 90s’ ‘Fight Club’, Mondo’s ‘Dredd 3D’ & MOAR!

Each and every week we scour the Internet for nothing but the best in nerd based art. We leave no digital stone unturned, we poke and prod every net based nook and cranny. Why? Because we love you, and we love to bring you weekly Nerd Art Dumps.

Dr. Teeth, Animal, Sgt. Floyd Pepper, Janice and Zoot, the one and only Electric Mayhem -before Lips came in and ruined it with his trumpet. Douglas Holgate made this kick ass looking tour poster that looks to be pulled from our parents closets. This must have been an early in their career though since Zoot is nowhere to be seen, either that or this was during the first of his many drug-related offences. [The House Of Skullduggery]

Hit the jump for the Black Cat, The Avengers as Dragons and MOAR

It’s every skin tight jump suit clad cat cat burglars problem, where do you hide the loot? You’re never carrying a purse while jumping from building to building. Someone like the Black Cat does the next big thing according to Amanda Conner, she stuffs her stolen booty down her skin-tight cat suit! Now that’s using your… head. [Comic Alliance]

First rule of Fight Club is never talk about Fight Club. Second rule of Fight Club is never allow anything created in the 9os’ in ’cause they will wreck your face. Tyler Durden may have been a bad ass (as far as hallucinations go,) but one round with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Tyler would go crawling back to that hole in Edward Norton‘s head. [Tony Bui Fan Club]

The cookies are up high and out of the way for a reason, that isn’t going to stop Skottie Young from having his baby super heroes try and go for the sugary goodness. Just… do these toddlers use their powers? Iron Man can fly or the Hulk could just push the fridge over, problem solved. Stupid babies. [Modern Age Comics]

Mondo makes some wicked alternate versions of movie posters and Jock knocked it right out of the park with this Dredd 3D poster. [Geek Tyrant]

Apparently just being The Avengers isn’t scary enough, so drawstillidie turned them intro dragons. So, there’s that. [Obvious Winner]

Nothing to see here folks, just two billionaires with expensive pieces of technology holding high-powered explosives, an everyday occurrence. Move along, move along. [Great Laziness]

These are not the old school Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles we’re all used too, but Mike Sekowski took our bright and colorful television friends and flipped them into a much more gritty and realistic setting. Michelangelo, Leonardo, Donatello and Raphael are perfectly styled in such a way that even without their trademark masks the turtles are uniquely distinguishable. Turtle power dude. [Geek Tyrant]

This one’s pretty self-explanatory. At the very least the Joker should love Harley’s sense of timing, but cleaning up all that liquefied Joker gas is going to take forever and it’s a bitch to get out of purple suits. Thank god she’s pretty. [Deviant Art]

Nerd Art Dump: How Popeye Should Look, Baby Aliens Vs. Predators, Peter Parker for Playboy and MOAR!

Each and every week we scour the Internet for nothing but the best in nerdy art. We leave no digital stone unturned, we poke and prod every nook and cranny of the Interwebz. Why? Because we love you, and we love to bring you weekly feed of nerd art. On with the dump!

Now that Sony is finally working on a CG animated Popeye film we’re left to speculate just what Popeye is going to look like, hopefully it’s like this. Created by Lee Romao, this version of Popeye is the furthest thing away from Robin Williams live action film of the early 80s’ and well suited for what Sony should be going with now. Hey Sony, if your reading this, hire the man. [Geek Tyrant]

Hit the Jump for Catwoman, a Doctor Who/Disney Mash-up and MOAR!

Usually most cat burglars don’t want any distinguishing marks the people can identify them with but when Cyrilt added a little ink to Gotham’s Queen of crime… well let’s just say no one is focusing on her face. [CGHUB]

This sums up the entire war the Aliens and Predators have had for centuries, this image alone explains everything better then two cheesy movies ever could. Artist Edwin David must know something that we don’t. [Geek Tyrant]

“Come with me , I’m the Doctor.” Ladies from everywhere and all time lines haved swooned over the charming wit of the Doctor Who, so why not a Disney princess? Artist Karen Hallion created this small series featuring the Doctor -his hand at least- beckoning Cinderella into his T.A.R.D.I.S. [Karen Hallion]

If you’ve never played Zombies Ate My Neighbours before then you missed out on a prime gaming experience in your childhood. Artist Christophe Regnault sums up the game quite nicely though as heroes Zeke and Julie battle the undead with water guns in hand and an “I don’t give a shit” attitude. [XombieDIRGE]

“Imagine, an entire island where once extinct humans can roam free.” A part of the Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn, New York The Autumn Society warped several Jurassic Park characters into a Dino form. I wonder who Dennis Nedry would be? [The Autumn Society]

The What If? story we’ll never see. Hugh Hefner hiring Peter Parker as a Playboy photograhper. Steven Howard made this piece after the suggestion “With no crime left to fight, what would super heroes be doing as a regular day job?” [Deviant Art]

Shaun of the Dead is an awesome Zombie movie and Mondo, the sweet poster company, knows how to make movies look even better in poster form. So Jock, one of Mondo’s premier artists, crafted this bitching Shaun of the Dead poster featured at this year’s New York Comic-Con, showing Shaun (Simon Pegg) in a bit of a bind. Check out the link for the alternate version featuring ED, Shaun’s best buddy and a whole lot of red. [Geek Tyrant]

Just enjoy this kick ass water color of Wonder Woman by Mike Kretz, it doesn’t need words. [Deviant Art]

The propsed idea for Stan Lee‘s original Avengers cameo, Scarlett Johansson respectively declined. [XombieDIRGE]
