If you’re not following Gail Simone on Twitter, you should really re-evaluate your life choices. The Comic Book Diva reigns supreme on the social media site, trolling dudebros and inciting hilarious discussions. For those not in the know, Gail Simone has written amazing books like Wonder Woman, Birds of Prey, Red Sonja and Tomb Raider. But her greatest accomplishment may be the latest ruckus she’s caused on Twitter. Calling out name brands to chime in on the greatest debate of all time, bigger than Pepsi or Coke, more dividing than Horde or Alliance, more important than any political election held to date, Gail Simone asks brands to draw a line in the sand and choose a side – Marvel or DC?
Oh, balls. Dragon Balls that is. The long running and beloved anime from Akira Toriyama, Dragon Ball Z, has taken a turn for the worst. No… they’re not making a sequel to that horrid adaptation Dragon Ball Evolution. Nothing will ever be THAT bad. But the next best worst thing has occurred. The obligatory porn parody. (more…)
Some pretty crazy stuff can – and often does – go down when you’ve been famous since you were a hot young Hollywood teenager and now have more money and freedom and influence than you know what to do with. Unlike most of the global population, you can buy nightclubs just so your band can perform there and, no matter how awful you are, there’s still the chance that Alice Cooper will join you on stage. You can make increasingly cringe-induing movies because you and your best buddy have enough of a reputation that film studios will throw money at you because why not? (more…)
For a movie that is so broadly accessible to viewers of all ages, there is plenty in Guardians of the Galaxy and its recent sequel that appeals to the baser instinct of many hot blooded adults. Front man Chris Pratt went from being the awkward, chubby sidekick that was Andy Dwyer in Parks and Recreation to a smoking hot muscle-bound beast for this role. If he’s too lean for your taste, there’s always the throbbing bulk of Dave Bautista‘s Drax. The pair share the billing with easily one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood, Zoe Saldana, who is no less stunning for being painted green from head to toe. (more…)
You can’t look at the news without hearing about hacking. Let’s face it, we live in a digital world and as more and more information is in the cloud, the more it is susceptible to exploitation. Hell, there are those that think the most recent presidential election was hacked, so the idea is totally in the air. As our banks, our Facebook accounts, and everything else is vulnerable to hacking, so is the entertainment industry, and not just celebrities’ nudes. The most recent high-profile hacking done was when Sony was hacked, revealing all sorts of details about the movie studios. It looks like there’s a new hack, and this time, there are demands.
Little is known of that mysterious masked man who stalks the crime-infested streets of Norfolk, Virginia. Is he a mild-mannered student invested with superhuman abilities after an encounter with a radioactive arachnid? Is he the sole inheritor of an outrageous fortune, forced to turn to fighting crime to avenge his fallen loved ones? Is he a bored student with basic sewing skills and too much time on his hands? All we know for sure is that they call him The Black Widow, and that it’s definitely the last one. (more…)
The 2016 Presidential Election was one for the ages. No matter your political affiliation, you can’t deny that this was one of the most contentious, antagonistic, and downright nasty campaigns in recent history. Given the results of the election, it doesn’t appear that the current divide is going to be healed anytime soon. This was the ultimate “Marvel vs DC” campaign, times 1000, and this country will be feeling the effects for it for years and years to come. One thing that many people keeps saying about the two headliners was that they were the least liked candidates in recent memory and voters had to hold their noses and vote for the “lesser of two evils.” Some members of the electorate either opted not to vote, others had another idea in mind: the write-in candidate, and there were some interesting choices.
When she’s not breaking up with Hollywood heartthrobs and writing songs about it, Taylor Swift is actually a pretty fun chick, and maybe even a tad nerdy as well. The world renowned songstress was spotted wearing a Deadpool costume for Halloween. Not just any Deadpool costume. Like, she literally wore Deadpool’s costume – as in Ryan Reynold‘s actual costume from the movie. (more…)
In social justice news, Disney is under fire today for another public outcry revolving around its upcoming film Moana. While many are happy to see Disney’s first ever film featuring a Polynesian Princess, activists have taken umbrage with the film’s insensitive depiction of Maui peoples – choosing to illustrate the film’s lead characters in a rubenesque body type. As if citing Disney for racial stereotyping wasn’t enough, the house of mouse just got whacked with a collective “Oh no they didn’t”, thanks to selling a questionable Halloween costume of one of the movie’s characters.

At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con fans of the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) thought they were just going to get the standard Hall H Panel for the upcoming Justice League film. Hopefully, the stars of the upcoming film would come out and boast about how great it will be, perhaps see a few pictures of the cast in action. Little did they know that they would actually get to see a trailer for the film a full year before it was released? Based on fans reactions, it looks like DC is moving in the right direction. The film had a much lighter tone than previous DCEU films and we got to see everyone (except Superman of course).
But with the Internet being the Internet, something weird had to come out of it. Enter Aldo Jones. Jones is a YouTube personality who does crazy editing for the trailers of mainly superhero films and strikes comedy gold out of them. The videos don’t have to make any sense, but they are funny as hell. Jones decided to give the new Justice League trailer a try. (more…)
