Nerdy Fact #1582: The bloody “Red Wedding” from Game of Thrones was inspired by two historical Scottish events: The Black Dinner, where a young Earl was promised safety by the King, but was murdered at a great feast, and the the Glencoe Massacre, in which one clan invited another clan to stay with them throughout the night only murdered them in their sleep.

Nerdy Fact #1581: According to a former Disney chairman, the notoriously controversial C.E.O. of Marvel Entertainment, Ike Perlmutter, thought no body would care that Terrence Howard’s character was replaced by Don Cheadle in the Iron Man franchise, “because black people ‘look the same.’” As of 2015, Perlmutter no longer oversees the development of Marvel Studios.
