Comic-Con Day 1: Hope You Like Chins

Comic-Con officially started yesterday, and the excitement was palpable provided your idea of excitement is looking at chins because literally two of the biggest stories are chin hair-based. I'm not even joking. So here's a quick rundown of Day 1, and all the lower portion of the face information that dwells within: Megan Fox Showed

Matthew McConaughey Is On F*cking Fire

There was a time not too long ago when Matthew McConaughey was a walking, shirtless punchline starring in romantic comedies about ghosts he used to put his penis in. But then slowly he began to reinvent himself into a man whose performances will make me literally grab random strangers on the street and breathe into…

Here’s Christian Bale Wearing Val Kilmer’s Batsuit To Audition For ‘Batman Begins’

Above is Christian Bale's audition tape for Batman Begins that made the Internet rounds over the weekend because not only does it feature future Lois Lane Amy Adams standing in for Katie Holmes, but Christian wearing Val Kilmer's Batsuit. (As for why he didn't wear George Clooney's, I'll assume the official reason was "too many…

Here’s What A Sequel To ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Might Have Looked Like. Kinda.

Above is a fan film from a potential web series called The Dark Knight Legacy which continues the events of The Dark Knight Rises that made Jospeh Gordon-Levitt's John Blake the new Batman. Except he's Nightwing because fuck Bruce Wayne's life mission to create an undying legend? Anyway, it's supposed to be in the tone…

I’ve Come Around To Ben Affleck As Batman

[Insert Batman talking in a Boston accent here. It'll be hilarious.] When Ben Affleck was announced as the new Batman in Zack Snyder's sequel to Man of Steel, the Internet was, well, the Internet. And understandably so considering Daredevil was a fiery shit into comic book fans' long boxes - *brushes dust off penis* -…

Someone Should Probably Tell New Superman People Live In Buildings: A Review of ‘Man of Steel’

"Aw, Superman, come back. We promise we won't stare at your penis anymore. These aliens are really strong." If you're debating whether to catch Man of Steel and are on a time-crunch, let me save you a pile of nerd words and say, yes, go see it. Because even though it's not quite the Superma…

So Christian Bale Might Be In ‘Justice League’

Until today the conventional wisdom was that Warner Bros.' lack of confidence in Man of Steel caused them to toss out the script for Justice League and adopt a wait-and-see plan before shamelessly copying The Avengers. Except now Latino Review claims (above) that the radio silence is from locking down a deal with Christopher Nolan

The Olsen Twins Just Had To Kill Heath Ledger:
A Review Of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’

If you've been living under a rock (I almost said "in a cave" but stopped myself) for the past 18 hours, 24-year-old James Holmes dyed his hair red, called himself The Joker and shot up a Colorado midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises after filling it full of homemade tear gas for reasons police…

Of Course ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Is A Liberal Plot To Make Mitt Romney Look Bad. Duh.

[Full Disclosure: Photo Boy and I did not make this pic, so if you're the creator, hit us up and we'll give you props because it's fucking awesome.] [Update: Credit added. Huge thanks to Aramis at Barkers & Rubes.] Over the past week or so, I've seen rumblings in the comments about it being a…

‘Let’s Let A Woman Drive The Batpod. What Could Go Wrong?’

"No, no, no. The correct procedure is hands at 10 and 2, then think about shoes." While Anne Hathaway spent last night defending the Catwoman costume which apparently does 9/10ths more shit than we even realize (I'm going to read that as, "Comes armed with full-frontal flaps."), footage leaked of her stunt double accidentally crashing…

BREAKING: Catwoman is a Stripper

"Just a few more shifts, Selena, and then you can finally afford cat college. Granted, you've had the money for a while, let's just do a few more, for at least another year. -- Two more years, two more years and we're out." Via Batman-News.com and by breaking I, of course, mean Friday: Catwoman i…

And Here’s Anne Hathaway As Catwoman In Broad Daylight

So remember when I joked about Warner Bros. only releasing a photo of Anne Hathaway as Catwoman because we're probably hours away from seeing her in full costume in broad daylight? It's been those hours. Here's Anne - or possibly a stunt double, getting conflicting reports - driving the Batpod on the Pittsburgh set of…

It’s Anne Hathaway as Catwoman

Probably because she was spotted yesterday on the surprisingly way-out-in-the-open set of The Dark Knight Rises, Warner Bros. released the first official image of Anne Hathaway as Catwoman/Selina Kyle this morning which means we're only hours away from looking at her prance around Pittsburgh in broad daylight. [Update: Like clockwork.] But let's focus on the…

And Now Here’s Batman Fighting Bane Right Out In The Open

**SPOILER ALERT** Batman punches him. With his fist. Christopher Nolan is meticulously secret when it comes to the plot of his movies, particularly the Batman films, which is why it's surprising to see how insanely out in the open production on The Dark Knight Rises in Pittsburgh has been so far. The entire Internet's already…

Bane Looks Like This Now

"I don't know what raped me worse: The traffic or your quarterback. OH! But, seriously, folks, I'm here to talk about emphysema..." I guess I should've started this whole post off with *SPOILER ALERT* because here's Tom Hardy in his full Bane getup on The Dark Knight Rises set in Pittsburgh on Saturday where apparently…

Here’s Tom Hardy as Bane

The Internet just Bat-came today after the first image of Tom Hardy as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises was revealed on the movie's official website, but only after finding a Twitter hashtag through some sort of audio visualizer, I don't even know. Coming from a guy whose wardrobe is 75% Iron Man T-shirts, that'…

Christopher Nolan Made a Mistake

If I make a Sean Young joke will anyone get it? Because that's basically what's going on in these Lady GaGa shots from last night, but with the exception of it actually working. Think about it, who would you rather see Batman fight? A run-of-the-mill Oscars host or a crazed hermaphrodite in filthy underwear? The…

Anne Hathaway is Catwoman

Marking the first time an attractive woman - who can act (Sit down, Katie Holmes.) has appeared in Christopher Nolan's Batman films, Anne Hathaway has been officially cast as Catwoman in The Dark Night Rises. Unfortunately, this also comes with the news that Inception star Tom Hardy is playing Bane which was essentially DC's attempt…
