WrestleMania XXVII Recap/Review

For those of you who are even the remotest wrestling fans, but have never gotten the opportunity to attend WrestleMania, it's an experience that transcends your expectations of what a wrestling show can be. Over the weekend, I was lucky enough to be in Atlanta, where I got the chance to go to WrestleMania Axxcess, the Hall of Fame ceremony, and the granddaddy of them all, Wrestlemania XXVII. All week, there will be photos, impressions, and interviews from the events, but, in case you missed it, here's a fan's-eye view of WrestleMania.

Warning: There be spoilers ahead!

Royal Wedding Stamp Tears Couple Apart (Oops)

Alright, we here at Attack of the Blog! understand the value of geek culture, whether that covers comic books, viral videos (mostly about hamsters) and general WTF. We don't really care about the upcoming Royal Wedding between Prince William and the future Princess Catherine but we do care when New Zealand releases a commemorative stamp to celebrate the Royal Nuptials (or whatever they're called) that allows collectors to literally tear the couple apart.

Editor of Gibbons Stamp Monthly Hugh Jefferies said the stamp is "embarrassing" and had not been designed well. He said: "Whoever designed this will have egg on their face and someone's head will roll. "I'm sure they didn't mean to ominously suggest the couple could be easily separated, it's just a very bizarre design.

Is this truly a bizarre design or a pessimistic outlook on the realities of marriage? I'm no stamp collector but this is tempting me to start.

Nerds, rejoice, the advent of Thor, the thunderer is nearly upon us and to keep your hearts aflame with anticipation, here are two new TV spots for Kenneth Branagh's Norse, comic book epic. Take a look!

The Governator Trailer (He's Back)

Last week, we mentioned that beloved action film star and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is teaming up with Stan Lee to create a new comic book and cartoon series titled The Governator. We know. The first trailer for the animation has been released and we're still scratching our heads.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Teams With Stan Lee On New Comic And Cartoon

Arnold Schwarzenegger has had some kick-ass team-ups in the past, but his latest creative collaboration is a head-scratcher: A comic book and animated series project with Stan Lee. (Yeah, let that sink in.)

Titled (appropriately enough,) The Governator, the project will depict Schwarzenegger as (surprisingly enough,) himself, but with a twist that he also cavorts a crime-fighting vigilante with Batman-like resources like a super high tech crime fighting center. All of those cool gadgets are apparently located under his house in Brentwood, CA.

So, is this just an April Fools joke that jumped the gun?

Here's a hilarious 90's era informational VHS tape explaining the dangers of the burgeoning information superhighway not too long after Al Gore single-handedly invented it with an abacus and some coaxial cable.

It was a time when MTV still played music, comic books were jumping the shark with gimmicky holograms and pop-ups on their covers, and the term "killer app" might best be applied to a hulking CD unit you could attach to your Sega Genesis. However, the world was just getting adjusted to the unknown frontier in which children could find themselves via a 14.4k modem and a Prodigy account.

The funky intro and hip new terms like "surfing the net" let children know that this video is totally "with it."

Cinderella & Snow White Caught In Prison Drug Smuggling RingCinderella and Snow White have gone wild! I know what you're thinking, but it's true. The two Disney heroines were caught in a prison drug smuggling scheme, all thanks to an innocent coloring book. Two women (actual women...not the cartoon characters) discovered a creative way to send narcotics to inmates by dissolving Suboxone into a dyed paste, which was then "painted" onto the illustrations in a coloring book. The pictures, which looked like drawings colored and signed by children, were then mailed to a New Jersey jail to three inmates.

Last month, a mail room employee discovered correspondence containing the suspicious coloring book pages containing an “orangey substance” that looked like “water color paint a child would use on an art project.” Investigators released photos of the four coloring book pages seized.

I would have never noticed the weird "orangey substance" but I definitely would have caught onto the impeccable coloring skills of these supposed children. There's no way a kid could have colored that well within the lines. Am I right or am I right?

Sucker Punch's Zack Snyder on Superman & the 300 Sequel »


Director Zack Snyder shares his deconstructionist view of his genre-blending film, Sucker Punch, discusses working alongside legendary comic book writer Frank Miller on Xerxes, the sequel to 300, and reveals how he plans to make Superman: Man of Steel appealing to audiences who have become accustomed to more adult fare, like The Dark Knight.

More X-Men Sequels In The Works At Fox?

It seems that multiple sequels to the X-Men film series are actually in development over at 20th Century Fox.

Yes, for those doing an understandable double-take, I said sequel(s). According to the latest issue of Empire Magazine (via Obsessed With Film,) producer Lauren Shuler Donner, (the Queen on comic book movies over at Fox,) revealed that despite the multiple spin-off films we've gotten and will soon get, the original X-Men film series, started over a decade ago by Bryan Singer and last helmed by Brett Ratner, is far from done.

To anyone who's been following the developments of this summer's X-Men: First Class, 2012's Wolverine follow-up, or the Deadpool solo film, this is undoubtedly some head-scratching news.

So, how would it work?
