The Movie Paradise Nerd Round-Up: April 9th

In this editorial series, I will be doing a weekly collection of all things nerdy. Some of the article will be a wrap-up of some movie news, perhaps casting rumors or images; stuff that doesn't necessarily warrant an entire article but are still important. Then the rest will be different geek culture items, such as memes or videos. I will try my best to post these every Saturday. So let's get our hands nerdy (okay, that was terrible) and check out the geek picks of this week.

The News

With Marvel's Captain America: Civil War coming out next month, it's only natural that they would begin marketing their own 2016 release, Doctor Strange. We know very little about the film. Just the other day, set pictures were released revealing Mads Mikkelsen as the villain, yet we still don't know who he is (you can see those pictures here). But now we can expect to learn a little bit more about the film. The first official trailer for Doctor Strange will debut next Tuesday. I am really excited for this trailer! I have a very strong feeling that this film could be something truly special, and I can't wait to see what it all looks like. This is a very different kind of film for Marvel, and it will be very interesting to see how they do it. If they can pull off a talking raccoon in space and a man who talks to ants, I think they can do wonders with the Sorcerer Supreme.

Deborah Snyder, a producer on Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and wife of the director, Zack Snyder, recently spoke about the upcoming DC film, The Flash, saying that Ray Fisher's Cyborg will be in the film. You can read the full interview with Forbes here, but the way she was so nonchalant about it makes me think that not only is it true, but it was a little something she wasn't supposed to let slip yet. I think this move makes a lot of sense. Yes, Cyborg will be in Justice League next year, but his solo movie isn't slated until 2020. So why not have him pop up in The Flash. Whether he will be a cameo apperance or an actual role in the film (like the Hulk in Thor: Ragnarok) is unknown. From the way Snyder talks about it, I would think Cyborg has a real role in the film. But until we know more, we can only conjecture as to what the film will entail. 

Cillian Murphy, who has had a long history of working with Christopher Nolan, has just been confirmed to be in the director's latest effort, Dunkirk, slated for release next year. I really like Murphy as an actor, and I think he is very underrated. He has appeared in many of Nolan's films, so it would only make sense that he would return for Dunkirk. This Nolan film is really shaping up to be something interest. Right now, Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance and Kenneth Branagh are also set to star. This is a very different movie for Nolan, so I am excited to see him venture outside of science fiction. I am excited to see what he does with a war epci. And recruiting such great acting talent as Cillian Murphy only helps him out in the long run.
