Wow, it has been an incredibly slow nerd news week. Of course, every time I say that, something huge gets announced, so by the end of the day we might learn that JJ Abrams has signed on to direct Star Wars Episodes VII-IX or something. For now, here’s some news bites, trailers, casting announcements, etc. from the week that I didn’t get around to writing about.

Chris Evans talks about Captain America 2, and says Captain America’s new costume in The Avengers was Joss Whedon’s idea.
