On this week's show Marc is joined by Saxon... First off we get chatty about the Agents of SHIELD trailer and how J August Richards is not Luke Cage, we chat about how Hawkeye might not be back for anymore Avengers movies but could be on the SHIELD series. We get a little excited, well Marc does, about the new Riddick trailer and we do get geeky about all the usual movies, comics and good stuff. Our first big interview of the week is with Mairtin DeBarra, the director of new movie BeatGirl which is a multi-platform release and tells the story of a girl who realises here life is in music. Our second interview is with Karen Bryson who has done a lot of TV work - but not the movie Staying Alive it seems - but who is currently making ripples in the last series of Shameless on Channel 4 in the UK. This leads us into chatting about how much of an institution Shameless has become in the UK. We also chat to Stuart from the Monday Movie Show who goes through the UK Box Office Top Ten plus the latest movie news, then we chat to the Bald Gamer Dude himself, Alan, who has some great new gaming news... oh and we play Trollolollo man. Which is always cool. We talk about all the latest toy releases that will be exclusives at SDCC 2013 - curse you SDCC!!!! And, of course, before the end of the show we just keep getting giddy about the week's news headlines, rumours and tidbits. It's fun to be a nerd. Oh and we talk about the final episode of Doctor Who and our conspiracy theory of the week revolves around the 'leaked' series 7 blu-rays in the US... Until next week, just remember you Nerd it here first!

On this week’s show your host, Marc, is joined by the man we call Saxon, Mr Stephen McCulla and we get into the nitty gritty of the world of Nerd. First up we talk about Iron Man 3 – don’t worry, we keep it spoiler free – and just what we thought of it. From there we talk about the latest toys from Marvel Select and just why Character Options has lost the plot when it comes to Doctor Who toys. Next we rejoice in the fact that we were mentioned in an online article in the Wall Street Journal before talking about last week’s episode of Doctor Who called Hide… spooky. With the release of the third Man of Steel trailer we rejoice in the music of Hans Zimmer and talk about why we think it’s a good thing that John Williams is left behind for Zack Snyder’s new take on the Superman mythology. Loki’s ultimate fate is discussed as we speculate, given what we see in the Thor: The Dark World trailer and know of the comic history, ON what we think will ultimately be his fate in the Marvel movie-verse. Stuart is back from The Monday Movie Show with the UK Box Office Top Ten and we talk in length about Oblivion and Joseph Kosinski’s previous sci-fi epic TRON: Legacy and Marc ponders on why he thinks Kosinski should be a shoe-in for one of the upcoming Star Wars sequels. Is Ghostbusters III still coming? We ponder the chances of it happening and wonder who would be a great choice of cast if the movie was – shudder – remade. What do you think of our choices? Finally, two of the biggest questions in sci-fi get addressed… why are Australian Trekkies up-in-arms about JJ Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness and will we really find out the name of the Doctor in two weeks? Or is Steven Moffat up to his old tricks? Don’t forget to subscribe to us and leave a comment on itunes HERE https://itunes.apple.com/gb/ podcast/the-following-the-nerd-show/id470013891
