Today in Nerd

posted by on November 7 at 15:55 PM

There was a website that went up a few days ago, at the address It featured some little girls looking up at a brick wall and a poster that said ‘It’s time for a new “W”’. Every day a little more of the poster was pulled away to reveal the poster beneath. One day it read “A woman’s job is never done,” which is very close to the actual expression about how a woman’s work is never done.

Finally, the top poster was pulled away to reveal this movie poster:


It’s Megan Fox in a Wonder Woman costume, with a bunch of helicopters and tanks behind her, presumably as an advance for an upcoming Wonder Woman movie. The problem here is that there is no Wonder Woman movie coming out. Warner Brothers, who owns the rights to any potential movie, have denied any involvement on the Wonder Woman film website front. The entire thing was produced by a Wonder Woman fanboy—I’m assuming it’s a boy, here, and I’ll apologize if it turns out I’m wrong—who’s apparently trying to build publicity for Megan Fox to star in a Wonder Woman movie. He photoshopped Fox into the picture and even applied logos for Warner Brothers and DC Comics, as though it was a real website for a real upcoming movie.

Thank God, on this week of all weeks, this anonymous fanboy put all this energy into making sure Megan Fox would star in the not-even-close-to-being-a-reality Wonder Woman movie. His bravery and resolve should be an inspiration for us all.

Well, it would be totally awesome.

Um, yes, there is one coming out and it has been in development for a while:

But Megan Fox would be terrible in it.

Megan Fox as Wonder Woman would be sweeeeeeeet, although I might spend most of the movie trying to restrain myself from jerking off in the theater.

gross, the dude didn't even take the time to airbrush out her belly button. Or her goose bumps.

Thing about this that are pathetic:

  1. Super hero movies
  2. And the way studios cash in on them
  3. Fanboys
  4. And the obsession that drives them to do mastubatory things with Photo-Shop
  5. And web sites
  6. Web buzz and the way it drives traffic to sites that conceal information to get very bored people to come back

OK I can see how this list could keep getting longer. "Not even close to reality" is also pathetic. Add that one. It's a pathetic fest. A pathetic-o-rama. Patheticaust.

@6: You are missing the whole point. It's not supposed to be cool for YOU! It's supposed to be cool for US!

Please make a note of it.

Who the hell is Megan Fox? I was hoping Cobie Smulders (how i met your mother) would play her (and I hope it takes place during WW2),

Posted by elswinger | November 7, 2008 4:24 PM

It should be played by a dude, now that's groundbreaking.

Tranny Wonder-if-that's-a-Woman?? Yes!

That is a bad PS job. Blech.

Posted by Jeremy | November 7, 2008 4:33 PM

It sure would be cool if my Wonder Woman movie was for really real.

@8: Megan Fox was in Transformers. She's also Brian Austin Green's girlfriend. That is all she has ever done.

Nice Callback.

Posted by Jeremy from Seattle | November 7, 2008 4:44 PM


I am speechless.

I don't know who this Megan Fox person is, but she looks like a lame-o. How could she possibly be up to Wonder Woman standards!

Posted by Gillian Anderson | November 7, 2008 4:56 PM

You tell 'em, Scully!

Posted by Jeremy from Seattle | November 7, 2008 5:00 PM

She doesn't quite fit the part in my mind. I mean, wonder woman should, right?

And anyway, if they do a WW movie I would hope they wouldn't cut out all the paganism. That would be down right lame.

On the plus side, this little project probably kept this fan-boy so preoccupied this week, he no doubt forgot to crawl out of his mom's basement to vote.

Fan-boys are notoriously conservative, and given their unbridled attraction to strong, charismatic male authority-figures (strong, charismatic female authoristy-figures being merely objectified Madonna-whores), would no doubt have voted for McCain.
