Alright, the crap has been sorted through, and now it’s clear sailing to get onto the best nerd stuff of 2015! This year saw some pretty great things hit our comic stands, movie theaters, and TV’s, and it was pretty hard to narrow this bad boy down to a manageable list. But I think I’ve got all the major awesome things that have come our way in 2015, and of course, if I missed something, feel free to yell at me about it. So, without further ado, the BEST OF 2015!!

It’s official: Fall is here. And with the turning of the leaves comes the end of the Summer, and more importantly, the end of the summer movie season. This year saw 3 big comic book movies. One was surprisingly a lot of fun, one wasn’t as good as it’s predecessor but was as still a good time, and the other was so bad that it’s not even worth bringing up. With the onslaught of Comic Book films coming our way in 2016, it’s kind of surprising to see the small showing that superheroes had in 2015. Perhaps the big studios were giving us a breather before Batman V Superman, Civil War, Deadpool, X-Men: Apocalypse, and Suicide Squad hit us next year? That may be, but this isn’t a time a to look ahead, it’s a time to look back. So, let’s take a look at the big movies of the summer, and crown our winner!
Remember how we all assumed that Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice was the sequel to Man of Steel? Apparently we’ve been wrong.

But if new rumors are to believed, WB is prepping a proper sequel to MoS, and they’ve signed on Mad Max mastermind George Miller to bring Superman back to the silver screen.

Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)
Starring: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicolas Hoult, Hugh Keays-Bryne
Directed By: George Miller
Many times when a new installment of a franchise hits decades after a previous entry, the results are lackluster (just take a look at Kingdom of the Crystal Skull). However, with Mad Max: Fury Road we have not only a stellar example of how to revive a franchise, but also how to craft an action movie. George Miller’s return to the world that made Mel Gibson famous is just as phenomenal as you’ve been hearing, and it’s the action film to beat this year. Read the rest of this entry
