Thor’s A Woman And Captain America’s Probably Black #ThanksObama

In the same week that saw Archie gunned down in a mall shooting saving his gay best friend from a right-wing nut, Marvel announced on The View yesterday that Thor’s a woman now. And according to writer Jason Aaron, “she’s not She-Thor or Lady Thor. She’s not Thorika. She is Thor. This is the new…

Tom Hiddleston’s ‘Thor’ Audition Will Murder Your Nerdgina Now

If you’ve had sex more than once since 2003, sweet, sweet 2003… *presses hand against window longingly* I’ll never forget you, Phoenix, which was definitely your real name. – you probably don’t know that Tom Hiddleston originally auditioned for the role of Thor only to be cast as Loki instead which worked out pretty darn…

If It Was Punchable, The Hulk Punched It:
A Review of ‘The Avengers’

“Seriously, guys, tell me that flying boat ride wasn’t awesome. It even had a pirate with an eye patch! A black pirate, but that’s okay ’cause this is the future.”
So last summer, I decided to spice things up because, frankly, you used to be way freakier before we moved in together. This resulted in…

Alexander Skarsgard & Thor Just Plundered A Hole In The Sex-Time Continuum

Fun fact: Alexander Skarsgard was one of the top rumored contenders for the role of Thor which thankfully didn’t happen because Chris Hemsworth taught us that Thor is best played by someone with a stocky Viking-esque build as opposed to a tall, lean, muscular Swedish fucking machine. If Alexander Skarsgard should play any superhero, it’s…

‘The Avengers’ Has A Trailer

Whoever owns the rights to The Avengers now – I’m going with Scrooge McDuck. – has just released the official trailer that hits pretty much all the bases you expect it to hit along with some Nine Inch Nails music because apparently kids love nails three inches shy of a foot. Can’t get enough of…

The Superficial Presents: ‘The Avengers,’ A Tale of Dumb Face and Peppercorn

It’s been a long, long time since I’ve done a caption gallery this large. In fact, it’s been so many years that the old ones didn’t even survive the migration from Movable Type to WordPress, essentially flushing hours upon hours of my life down the Internet toilet. Ahahahaha! *cries curled up in the shower for

Here’s Scarlett Johansson’s The Avengers Costume in Broad Daylight

Hey, do you think she’s pregnant?
Despite the fact Iron Man 2 was essentially a jumbled, two-hour mess of a trailer for The Avengers that resulted in Jon Favreau bolting the franchise and Robert Downey Jr. cryptically biting the hand that saved him from becoming Charlie Sheen, it still made an assload of money, so…

I Wrote a Review of ‘Thor’

As promised, here’s my review of the Kenneth Branagh-directed Thor which is a little off the beaten path of celebrity schadenfreude and more or less an excuse for me to get my nerd on. On that note, I’m going to try and hit the other big three comic flicks of the summer: X-Men: First Class,…

Kat Dennings at ‘Thor’ Premiere

Posted by Photo Boy
Here is Kat Dennings at the L.A. premiere of Thor last night and I already know what you’re thinking. I completely agree, this photographer is gifted. I mean, the composition, the lighting, its just breathtaking. I’m neither a comic book nerd, nor a film director but I do know well-taken photographs…

Super Bowl XLV: ‘Wait, These Are Nerd Movies…’

While the Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers engaged in gridiron combat last night that set the stage for people of low moral fiber to make constant and repetitive rape jokes because Ben Roethlisberger rapes people, several trailers for summer tent poles debuted which you can check out below and quibble over like the nerds…
