Kurt Broz
THE Kurt Broz is not just a personality for Nerdbot, but he's also the editor-in-chief and a real live scientist! Born on the snowy shores of Lake Erie in good ol' Cleveland, Ohio, Kurt Broz has been there and back again, now residing in sunny Southern California. You can find THE Kurt Broz in cosplay, buying comics, hiking, and even writing for Nerdbot and WLFK Productions. He may be a child of the 80's but he is certainly a man of the world.

Ultraman: the beloved size-changing space cop (merged with a Japanese man) is back and het’s bringing his talents to Netflix in a new original series.

Ultraman is probably best known to Westerners through the live action TV shows and toys, but Netflix is planning an original return of the titular hero as a CGI anime. What we do know is that this series will follow a manga featuring Shinjiro Hayata, the son of the beloved original Ultraman us Americans recall fondly, and his taking up the mantel and bonded spirit/DNA of the powerful alien. Of course evil aliens are back so Ultraman must rise to the challenge. Again!

The promo images show an Iron Man-esque (or maybe Guyver-esque) suit updated from the classic jumpsuit. Launching in 2019, production will be done by Production IG (The End of Evangelion) with director Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed Alpha). Oh, and check out the manga it’s based on, available now.

Do you want to see more classic Japanese show reboot? Or is Ultraman best left in our childhood? Let Nerdbot know in the comments!
