Today in Techland: Hey, who needs basketball? We unveiled our March (Monster) Madness bracket, featuring face offs between the most nefarious villains in history. Who will win? The Jabberwocky? Darth Vader? The Joker? Dr. Horrible? MCP? Tune in to find out, fellow nerds.

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

Kick-Ass Posters: The film was screened at SXSW and tonight in NYC at a special event by UGO, and of course the marketing campaign just keeps on coming. Check out these vintage propaganda-styled movie posters above.

But will it be as successful as Buffy? Zenescope Entertainment announced today that they’ll publish a comic series based on the television show Charmed with the first issue due out this summer, just in time for Comic Con. Charmed was a CBS syndicated show that aired from 1998 to 2006. It’s comic adaption isn’t surprising, especially since the success of the Buffy series – a category competitor for sure. Will fans still bite?

More from the set of Syfy’s Red:

And speaking of a bad ass Little Red: The World Black Belts Center has releases its own version of Little Red Riding Hood to promote children’s self defense. I have to say I’m loving this self-empowered version of Red and her willingness to kick all sorts of bad wolf ass.

Red Riding Hood arrived
shortly after lunch,
and unleashed her fury
in one killer punch.

After eating poor granny,
the wolf didn’t know,
our heroine had a black belt,
in the art of Tang Soo Do.

Soon we’ll be able to Tweet without ever actually visiting Today Twitter rolled out its plan for @anywhere, an upcoming feature that will allow visitors to participating sites to tweet a video straight from that site. No middle man or copy and paste necessary.

New Shrek Forever trailer: I don’t know about you, but the magic of Shrek seems to be lost in this latest installment. I think it’s time to retire the Irish accent, Mr. Meyers.

Detective Comics is pro lady love: The DC book was honored at the GLAAD Media Awards in NYC for its story line of Batwoman Kate Kane and her ex Renee Montoya (The Question).
