"Brad Pitt has CAA. Bill Murray has a weird 1-800 number. But who do superheroes call when they need representation in the high stakes world of Hollywood show business? The STA of course — Superhero Talent Agency, if you’re nasty. (And we think you’re nasty… in a good way.) 
On today’s edition of Nerdist Presents, join Tina and Marques Champlagne, the owners of STA and talent agents to the superheroic stars, as they take us through a day in the life of the hard-working folks who negotiate commercial sponsorships, soap opera guest appearances, and help bury scandals for the biggest and brightest heroes in the world.

There’s always that one client…"

When Jon Negroni's "Pixar Theory" hit the internet everyone loved it. It was well thought out and made a lot of sense. It created a unified timeline for all the Pixar movies that fans have loved for years. Now, the animation team Bloop Animation have created an all new video that expands on this theory with some amazing narration and clips from the films.

Once you become a companion to the Doctor on Doctor Who you are always a companion. Actress Katy Manning starred as companion Jo Grant from 1971-1973 to the third Doctor Jon Pertwee. Manning recently visited the set of the show and from her account had an amazing time and even got to take a sneak peek at the upcoming Christmas episode which she says will be the best ever. She even had a moment to recreate an iconic image between her and the third Doctor with Peter Capaldi who is playing the twelfth Doctor. This recreated image is simply brilliant.

Characters from The Walking Dead spin-off are announced!

Fans were excited to hear that AMC had greenlit a spin-off series to the popular show The Walking Dead. This new show will focus on a new group of survivors during the same zombie apocalypse but in a different part of the country.

Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead comics and show, co-wrote this spin-off series with Dave Erickson. Until now we did not know who this show would be centered around however thanks to TV Line we have gotten a character list that seems pretty interesting.
"SEAN CABRERA | A Latino male in his early 40s, Sean is a good man trying to do right by everyone in his life.
CODY CABRERA | Sean’s whip-smart and rebellious teenage son. Known as the angriest kid in town.
NANCY TOMPKINS | A thirtysomething single mom to two kids, Nancy looks like the girl next door, but there’s an edge to her.
NICK TOMPKINS | Nancy’s screwed up teenage son. He’s too old to stay home, too scared to flee.
ASHLEY TOMPKINS | Nancy’s mostly level-headed teenage daughter. Her ambition is in direct proportion to her older brother’s failures. She loves her mom but it’s time to get out of Dodge.
ANDREA CHAPMAN | A somewhat wilted flower child, fortysomething Andrea — yep, another Andrea! — has retreated to the outskirts of the city to recover after a horrible marriage."
Are you excited to explore the world of The Walking Dead through the eyes of another group? Will you tune in to watch this spin-off series?

Many gamers are saying that the hit hit game Destiny is basically the same thing as Halo just minus the deep story. Watch as the characters from Destiny argue, unsuccessfully, that that assumption couldn't be farther from the truth.

The Piano Guys play an amazing Batman theme song medley titled "Batman Evolution"! [video]

Batman has always been one of my favorite superheroes so to see this amazing video from The Piano Guys focus on the music of the Batman era is truly fantastic! The Piano Guys' new video is titled "Batman Evolution" and they play three theme songs from the Batman era; the 1960s television show, the 1989 Tim Burton film, and the new 2005 Dark Night films. As an added bonus, as they play the theme music the corresponding Batmobile is parked beside them which is really cool! Listening to these songs just reminds me why I love Batman.
"Holy hemiola, Batman! 50 years of music and film all rolled together in front of the cars that have become icons of super hero history. This is one of those projects we’ve wanted to do from the very beginning of The Piano Guys. We love super heroes, the dramatic music that has brought them to life, and the vivid films that have made them legends. We used piano, cello, handheld cameras, a radio controlled helicopter, and some scrappy special effect techniques in the most creative ways possible to emulate the three epic eras of one of the greatest super heroes ever created: BATMAN!"
Enjoy!
