Count3rCu1ture News Desk: 05.28.11

Welcome back, kids. We have some more news to go over. One bit is AWESOME and the other two...well, let’s just get to it, shall we?

I’m SO Seeing This Movie Now...

Latino Review (don’t let the name fool you, it’s a geek-centric movie site) beat everybody to the punch late Thursday night by reporting that the Avengers movie due next year has another villain up its sleeve. It’s already been reported that the Big Bads are Loki and the shape-shifting Skrulls, but there’s another on the horizon.

Since it is a SPOILER, I’m not giving it away here. You’re more than welcome to go read it here if you want to know as well. I did read it. And all I have to say is...

Holy crap. If I weren’t already interested in seeing this movie, then this. One of my top five favorite villains. IOn any genre. Ever. Would convince me to go see it. As the guys on Nerdy Show would say...”Shut up and take my money!”

Make It Stop Already!

My problem with Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark is already well-documented. But the problems plaguing this thing haven’t deterred these fools. Nope. It opens on Broadway on June 14...

...the same day the Cast Album has been announced for release.

Since a picture is worth a thousand words...

RoboCop Returns To Wrestling??

No, seriously. Let’s back up a bit.

It’s been 21 years since RoboCop first made his appearance at a wrestling event. It was Capital Combat in May of 1990 that WCW brought in...for one show...RoboCop.

As I Want’s Dave Lagana puts it, “It’s a moment a lot of fans groan over – even to today.“ Do I have to explain why? Even Jim Ross, who was a ringside commentator for the “event”, disavows his role in what happened.

Well, Lagana also brings word (same link as above) that once wasn’t enough. Robocop has made his return to wrestling.

It’s moments like this that, when someone gets on my case about being a wrestling fan, that my explanations of defense can only go so far. If this gets thrown in my face, I’m pretty much left with no choice but to immediately tap out.

Although, as far as RoboCop goes...has this guy had a banner year or what?
