This Batman isn't motivated by some complex, perpetual quest to avenge the death of his parents. He's also certainly not some maniac that wants to rule through fear, watch the world burn, or even make himself Gotham's reckoning.

He just wants cookies, and beating up criminals seems to be the most thrilling way to get them.

For instance, he just got a tip that a mugger a few blocks down is armed with some Pepperidge Farm Milanos. -- He's SO there.

You Probably Won't Want To Catch 'Em All

Sure, the possibilities for duels are off the charts, but at the end of the day, Xenomon have no loyalty to anyone except themselves and their queen.

It may try to charm you by belting-out a song from the second face it has on its tongue, or even show you its little larvae that wants to hug you right in the face, but don't be fooled by the friendly facade.

Thor Sequel: Kat Dennings Will Return

It appears that sequel, Thor: The Dark World will indeed feature the return of Kat Dennings' Darcy Lewis, the spacey sidekick of Natalie Portman's Jane Foster.

According to Deadline, Dennings, who is currently enjoying high-rated success on the CBS comedy, 2 Broke Girls, will find time to return to the Thor franchise for what is said to be an expanded role. 

With most of the original cast returning, along with additions such as former Chuck star, Zachary Levi replacing Josh Dallas as Fandral, and former Doctor Who, Christopher Eccleston as villain, Malekith The Accursed, it will certainly be interesting to see what's in store for the tantalizing taser-toting hipster.

Thor: The Dark World hammer-strikes its way to theaters on November 8, 2013.

Law Office Of Lando Calrissian

Posted August 22, 2012 - By Joseph Baxter

After the fall of the Empire, Lando Calrissian's days as a general in the Rebellion would join the list of his other former professions of smuggler, gambler, and Tibanna gas kingpin.

However, after attaining his law degree from the University of Naboo Online, he would become the galaxy's newest ambulance-chasing pitbull attorney.

Ironically enough, he's currently working on a class action lawsuit against the Rebellion on behalf of Imperial workers who were injured/blown-up in the two Death Star explosions. (Regardless of the fact that he actually perpetrated one of them.)

RED 2 Teaser Poster Arrives

RED 2, the sequel to the 2010 film about aging retired spies has released its first teaser poster.

Returning stars, Bruce Willis, Mary-Louise Parker, John Malkovich, and Helen Mirren will be joined by Catherine Zeta-Jones, Neal McDonough, Byung-hun Lee (Storm Shadow from the G.I. Joe films), and the great Anthony Hopkins as its villain.

With a solid amount of action and comic relief, the first film certainly delivered enough of its own Expendables-like dream-cast chemistry. Now, the "Retired, Extremely Dangerous" crew are back for more mind-blowing action, cracking bones aside.

RED 2 cuts-down bad guys with a razor-sharp AARP card at theaters on August 2, 2013. Check out the poster below.

Honest Trailers: The Hunger Games

Baxter
Posted August 21, 2012 - By Joseph Baxter

With 3.8 million units sold in the first week of its DVD/Blu-ray release and shattered digital records, The Hunger Games has certainly cemented itself as heir-apparent to Harry Potter when it comes to book-to-film franchises where children participate in battles for some reason with global implications. (As opposed to real life when they battle over implications related to Facebook statuses.)

However, the folks at ScreenJunkies rightly identify some of derivative inconsistencies in this futuristic dystopia where people live as if they were involuntary Amish when technology has clearly advanced beyond the need.

Yet, despite all of that, one constant will remain: Physically-attractive protagonists who happen to be relatable to a lucrative demographic with deep disposable incomes.

R2-D2 Makes A Pit Stop

After a long battle pitted in the belly of Luke's X-Wing, that first release after landing is one of the most satisfying moments in life for this little astromech droid.

Unfortunately, for all his usefulness on the battlefield, he kind of sucks at exercising basic decorum.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Finds A Director?

Marvel's upcoming feature, The Guardians of the Galaxy may have found a director for its 2014 film featuring the cosmic super-team.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, James Gunn, writer/director of the 2006 meta-infused, tongue-in-cheek horror flick, Slither is in talks to helm this most curious of comic book films. Of course, Slither starred geek deity, Nathan Fillion, a well-known player in the universe of The Avengers director, Joss Whedon.

Also responsible for an array of quirky campish work under Lloyd Kaufman's Troma banner, as well as satirical superhero film, Super, Gunn could be taking the big plunge into what might be, on paper, one of the most ambitious (and riskiest) comic book films ever.

While the report claims that Marvel is in "exclusive talks" with Gunn, Marvel has yet to confirm Gunn's status as director. Additionally, the names of directors, Peyton Reed, Ryan Fleck, and Anna Boden are reportedly still in the mix.

Is James Gunn the right man for the job?

Russian Supercat

Baxter
Posted August 20, 2012 - By Joseph Baxter

This cat was sent to Earth from his destroyed planet to ensure that his new home of Russia is safe from plow-thieves and seditious female punk bands, while ensuring that vodka supplies remain as high as Putin's biceps.

His only weakness is a rare element from his home planet fallen to earth in the form of glowing green meteorites ...also, his proclivity to be distracted by laser pointers and balls of yarn.
