What's up, nerds? Britton Peele here for GuideLive.com to update you on some of the biggest geek news of the week.

Two of DC's biggest superheroes are getting makeovers soon. Superman and Wonder Woman each had new costumes revealed exclusively on Nerdist.com and HitFix.com, respectively. Wonder Woman's is pretty cool! She looks well-armored and ready for battle, but the suit still evokes feelings of the classic Wonder Woman outfit.

Superman's new costume on the other hand... Well, calling it a costume might be a bit generous. I mean, if Kal-El doesn't want to rock a cape anymore, that's fine. But now all he's wearing is a t-shirt and jeans. That's going to make for some really boring cosplay at the next Comic Con.

I tend to get pretty lazy around Halloween, so I've been known to just throw on a pair of glasses and say I'm dressed as Clark Kent. Now I guess I can ditch the glasses, grab a basic Superman t-shirt and just go as the Man of Steel instead.

Anyway, we also got some major tidbits of Star Wars news this week. The biggest news is that the first spin-off film in the series is now officially titled Rogue One, and as previously reported it will star Felicity Jones. Filming for  that movie starts in London this summer, and it should hit theaters December 16, 2016.

Disney also confirmed that Star Wars: Episode VIII which will be written and directed by Rian Johnson, will make its way to the box office on May 26, 2017. Assuming neither film moves, that means we're going to be getting two major Star Wars movies within six months of each other, which is kind of crazy.

Lastly, there was the incredibly sad news that Sir Terry Pratchett, author of the very popular Discworld novels, has passed away at the age of 66. Not much to say about it other than that the world has lost a great mind, and if you haven't read any of his more than 70 books, you should do yourself a favor and check them out.
