Here’s what else is going on in nerd news around the Web:

What’s under the hood, R2?: Don’t worry, Kenny Baker isn’t in there. This is a pretty cool ‘blueprint’ of R2 but Geek Tyrant didn’t really give us the option of blowing the image up. Oh well. I’ll break out the magnifying glass. Click to enlarge.

Favreau Likes Whedon: I’m still on the fence.

“If it ends up being Joss Whedon, I think it’s a great choice,” Favreau told MTV News. “Because he’s got a great sense of humor [and] he has a deep knowledge of the whole universe which I think ‘The Avengers’ would require because you’re weaving a lot of different mythologies and storylines together.”

This Can’t Be Good: This is Hank Azaria as Gargamel.

I spotted this on 18th and Park earlier today.

I Am Iron Man: These are the coolest posters I’ve ever seen. Check out the rest at SuperPunch.

It’s Not Ratner or Singer: Deadline is reporting that Kick-Ass Director Matthew Vaughn is back on for X-Men: First Class. The deal should be finalized in the coming days. Oh, and Singer is attached as a producer.
