Nerdy News Roundup: Michael B. Jordan talks F4 2, JJ Abrams gives us a 'Cloverfield' sequel

Michael B. Jordan, who is in a much different place right now than he was in the summer, addressed some Fantastic Four questions in an interview with IGN

His latest movie "Creed" is gathering award nominations and critical acclaim while that other movie he starred in over the summer is racking up nominations for sucking. 

Here's what he said when asked about what the hell went wrong with Josh Trank's "Fantastic Four:" 

"I look back at the film as a learning experience," he shared. "Every film isn't going to be a home run. Everybody involved didn’t set out to make a film that didn’t work. I think everybody wants to do the best job possible. I think it was a big education for me to realize that things aren’t in your control, and you can do everything you’re supposed to do. You can give 110% every day, and the movie still not work out. But that may or may not be on you and you’ve got to be OK with that."

Well, damn, that's a mature way to handle the backlash. Maybe he should teach some of these life lessons to his former director, Trank. Good for, Jordan. He's already moved on to bigger and better things, and while he hasn't fully escaped the dark cloud cast by the Fantastic Flop, he appears to be using it as motivation. 

When asked about whether he would return as Johnny Storm in the potential (!!!!!) sequel, the actor responded with: 

"I'm not sure, man... As much as we want and we like these characters, and we like these worlds and stuff like that, we [actors] have such a small say in what goes on behind closed doors -- all that other, extra stuff. Also, I love the character. I'm a big comic book fan, and that's one of the reasons I wanted to do it in the first place. We'll see what happens."

Yeah, all you need to read into is that "I'm not sure man, ... (AWKWARD PAUSE). Move on Michael, not that we don't want you to give it a go if this thing gets green lit, but because you've established that you deserve better.

That's so cool, I needed that and so did you. 

JJ Abrams gives us a peak at Cloverfield's sequel "10 Cloverfield Lane," in what the Force Awakens director refers to it as a "blood relative" to the original Cloverfield. 

John Goodman and Mary Elizabeth Winstead are the two leads in the film expected to hit theaters March 11 in IMAX and 3D. Check out the film's recently launched Facebook page by clicking here.  

Back to the sad, Brian Bedford -- the voice actor of Disney's Robin Hood -- died at the age of 80 following a bout with cancer. Seriously, fuck off, cancer. The longtime Canadian-American voice actor, actor and director is reportedly survived by his long-time partner and husband, Tim MacDonald.

Wow, watching that made me really sad. This week has been the worst. Let's end this on a good note: 

That's a great goddamn billboard. Don't get it?
