Celebrities impersonating other celebrities, like most things, usually either crash and burn like the Hindenburg, or as in the case with Benedict Cumberbatch, knock it out of the park. What’s even more impressive about Cumberbatch, is the that in this video, he does multiple impersonations in a 60 second window. (more…)

Because Defense Contractors Gotta Eat – U.S. Gov Wants to Build Helicarriers

Helicarrier_1

Did you read a Marvel Comic, or see The Avengers, and upon glancing at the S.H.I.E.L.D. flying fortress known as a helicarrier think to yourself, “I have got to get me one of these!” Well so did some people at the Pentagon. The notion of a helicarrier is nothing new, after all it combines all the mobile command awesomeness of an aircraft carrier without that icky possibility of getting splashback from the world’s oceans. It’s the best of both worlds! It’s worth noting that this comes from the government themselves, and not one of those silly Change.org petitions like the one that wants the government to dump trillions into building a Death Star. Nope, the government wants helicarriers legit, and they`re currently accepting proposals on how to get the job done. (more…)

A couple of weeks ago, Marvel aired a special on ABC, Marvel: 75 Years From Pulp To Pop. It was a light-hearted celebration of everything Marvel that included a look at Marvel’s history and a number of the creative talent involved in marvel’s history, as well as looks at Marvel’s Television and Cinematic Universes. The special showcased a lot of Marvel artwork, but also, tucked away in that special was a two second bit of art that wasn’t really Marvel’s to use. (more…)

Sony Might Make An Aunt May Movie… Wait… What?!?!

MAY HERO

A friend of mine goes around being bummed out a lot because his sister sleeps around all the time. I told him to just be cool about it because she is who she is, and everyone has to accept that. A long time ago, I understood that you can’t change people or ask them to be something different than they are. That’s why it doesn’t surprise me in the least that word is going around about the morons at Sony developing an a Spider-Man’ movie spinoff starring Peter Parker’s Aunt May. You just gotta let a clown be a clown, and Sony’s just a bunch of clowns. Now, this comes from a Latino Review Exclusive, so take it with a grain of salt. But it’s being reported everywhere, so I’m thinking it’s real. Sadly real. (more…)

Marvel Vs. Attack On Titan Details Revealed As Universal Studios Plans Giant Statues(?)

So, the other day I posted strange news about a partnership between ‘Attack On Titan’ and Marvel Comics. Nobody expected things to get any more normal. It’s a friendship that opens up boundless opportunities, even the most farthest reaching idea about combining the universes on film. For now, we’re going to stick with the upcoming comics crossover with a little extra thrown in. The extra bit involves Universal Studios Japan building a gigantic display starring two Titans locked in fierce combat. Now that I think of it, there’s really no other kind of combat. Okay, first up – let’s talk about where this melding of monsters and man is going to take place. Then, the statues. I know that I wrote that weird, but I’m trying to make simple sense out of the insane.

Did You Know Freddy Kreuger Landed Mark Hamill His Dream ‘Star Wars’ Role

Freddy Krueger – a.k.a. Robert Englund – has been tearing up the interview circuit as of late due to the upcoming 30th anniversary (yes… you hear that right, 30 years!!!) of A Nightmare On Elm Street. Some of his anecdotes have been compelling to say the least, but one that sticks out in our minds is the revelation that he helped Mark Hamill secure his Star Wars gig, playing the role of Luke Skywalker. As it turns out, getting drunk and passing out on Krueger’s couch isn’t necessarily a bad thing. (more…)

Marvel Partners With ‘Attack On Titan’ For Weird And Awesome-sounding Crossover!

USE THIS FIRST

Attack On Titan and the Marvel Universe couldn’t be more different from each other. One’s an exceedingly popular anime title that seems to be gaining more steam by the day. The other’s the Marvel Universe, and if you need a breakdown of that, then leave this site immediately. Either way, one couldn’t be more different than the other. Marvel’s superhero vs. supervillain plan is a simple one: one fights the other. Attack On Titan is a bleak Japanese series where humans live in fear behind giant walls as protection against humongous monsters trying to eat them. Exactly what kind of gumbo are they trying to cook up by mixing these two entities together? I don’t know, but it’s gonna be effing badass because both are on one hell of a roll. (more…)

Best Class Ever: Syracuse University Now Offers A ‘Doctor Who’ Course

- 11-04-14Cool Stuff, Nerd Culture, WTF? Posted by Aspry Jones

When I picked my universities, they needed two criteria: 1.) be far away from home, and 2.) be relatively warm. I ended up going to Clark in Atlanta and Norfolk State in Virginia, scoring on both essentials. The third imperative was that they had to be good schools too. Yes, the twisted priorities of an 18 yr-old. Syracuse University is too far into Freezytown, USA, so that was never even an option for me. But I’d have totally considered it if they’d offered a Doctor Who class because I’m obsessed with that shit. Only real Whovians and high school slackers of the highest (lowest) order need read on!

Two-Face Thought Batman Forever’s Riddler Was A Buffoon? The Hell You Say.

The year is 1995 and Tim Burton’s vision of Batman has twice pleased life-long fans of the Caped Crusader as well as bringing in some huge box office numbers.  The third entry in the franchise is ready to hit and fans everywhere are a bit confused with the replacement of Michael Keaton as the man behind the bat but they are still on board with Batman Forever.  After all, casting Jim Carrey as The Riddler was a master stroke and audiences are very curious as to just what sort of life Tommy Lee Jones can breathe into lawyer turned psycho madman, Two-Face and, holy sidekick, audiences are finally going to get a Batman movie with the Boy Wonder, Robin!  The movie was released and, unfortunately, it was nothing like the previous two entries, and audiences didn’t love Joel Shumacher’s vision of the Dynamic Duo as much as Burton’s stories.  One thing that many agreed on, however, was the fun relationship between Two-Face and The Riddler.  They may have seemed like the perfect alliance on screen but if Jim Carrey is to be believed, there may have been a bit of behind-the-scenes animosity on the set between Two-Face and The Riddler during the production of Batman Forever.
