Thor Review & The Summer Superhero Scorecard

Vikings and comic book nerds rejoice today, because Marvel Studios' Thor finally hits movie theaters, bringing hammer time to the masses. I swear that's the only hammer time joke I'll make in this article. I can only imagine that during the production of this movie, executives met at some point and batted around the idea to license MC Hammer's "U Can't Touch This" and put some sort of funky techno version over the end credits. Thankfully, that didn't happen.

...And for our purposes, it works.

If you're thinking of a better way to celebrate Easter than you did yesterday, then this kick-ass action figure is what you need.

Jesus Christ Action Figure

If I were to guess, this toy line seems to imagine that Jesus teamed up with Mad Max to take on time-traveling ninjas and a T-1000 sent back to Jeruselum by Skynet.

Michael Bay's mulling over the script as we speak.

Kevin Pereira & Candace Bailey Screw Around With An Imitation Portal Gun, Pics

Portal technology, the kind you've used with wild abandon in games like Portal 2, is not to be toyed with. It's a dangerous science that has potentially severe repercussions, as we all saw on today's AOTS. If you, or someone you know, has thought about buying a Portal gun on the black market and using it to get some cheap thrills, let these pics of Kevin Pereira and Candace Bailey playing around with an imitation Portal gun be a warning to you. Don't do it!

Pizza Delivery: Ninja Turtles Style

You may get your pizza delivered with a "cowabunga" flair, but chances are, it's going to be ridiculously late, since the trip will inevitably detour to "rescue April" for some reason.

G.I. Joe 2: Director Jon Chu Talks

Recently named director of the upcoming sequel to 2009's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Jon Chu has been hitting the interview circuit discussing the project. Interestingly enough, for the director, best known for the recent teen-idolatry documentary, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, and a few entries in the Step-Up dance films, his first priority has been to brandish his own credentials as a fan of the G.I. Joe franchise.

Indeed, his appointment to the director's chair was a head-scratcher to many in the aftermath of the sudden departure of the first film's helmer, Stephen Sommers. Chu clearly had a lot to discuss in light of that, starting by dismissing rumors which stated that some of the primary cast of the first film (Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Sienna Miller) were abandoning ship. (It's still up in the air.) Chu would also give what may be considered his mission statement for the film when he says that he wants to "give a new attitude to this movie."

With a budget that will likely be well below the $175 million of the first entry, Chu will be tackling a sequel to a film that experienced moderate success, but has a lot issues. He seems to have a vision for the film, and has expressed interest in going the 3D route, but a lot of things still need to be ironed-out.

Green Lantern Debuts A New Action-Packed Trailer

A new trailer for this summer's Green Lantern made its debut at last weekend's San Francisco WonderCon.

It's been the better part of five months since we got the first Green Lantern trailer, which ended up garnering mixed reviews, due to its emphasis on Ryan Reynolds' comic sensibilities and other superficial things. However, this trailer has rectified all of that, focusing mostly on the sublime action sequences. It truly projects a more accurate context regarding the amazing responsibility that has been placed on his Hal Jordan character.

This trailer, pretty much opens up the entire Green Lantern universe. Check it out just below.

ThunderCats WonderCon Trailer Packed With New Footage

A new teaser for Cartoon Network's update of ThunderCats was unveiled over the weekend at WonderCon in San Francisco.

Immediately, we can see that it's a lot longer, has dialogue, and is more substantive than the teaser we got about a month ago. Yet, it continues to drive home the point the previous one made, which is that this version of the 80's cartoon and toy lore will be much more grandiose in scope, focusing on the dilemma of young Lion-O as he is forced to rise to the stature of leadership for his people during a time when they face extinction at the hands of a heavily-armed mutant army and a creeping threat from an ancient spirit of evil.

The more of this reboot we see, the better it seems to get. Check it out below.
