Your nightly open thread is here, so if you want to talk about The Dark Tower, Captain America or X-Men: First Class, this is the spot, kind Kotaku reader.

If you're out of the loop, you may want to catch up on some of today's nerd news, including the TV and film adaptation effort of Stephen King's The Dark Tower series, which will (in theory) spawn three movies and two seasons of television. Which seems crazy!

On the less exciting side, peeks at Captain America: The First Avenger filming and Emma Frost from the next X-Men movie are out. And... uh... I'm sure it's going to be fine in the long run.

Anyway! Let's catch up, shall we?
