As The Avengers DVD/Blu-ray hits stores today, perhaps it is time to re-watch the film with a more objective eye towards what might be the film's perceived plot holes.
The latest honest trailer from the folks at Screen Junkies brings us just that analysis. Now, with the fanboy fog somewhat thinning, you'll start finding yourself questioning a number of the major turns in the film...and trying not to call Loki "Gay Bane" from this point on.
While a lot of salient points were made, at the end of the day, the critical thing to remember is that this film, minor warts and all, is still THE MOTHERF**KING AVENGERS. So, there is that.
Upcoming X-Men prequel-sequel, The Wolverine has released its first official photo. (Yesterday. m(._.)m )
We now get a look at the titular claw-snikting, wound-healing mutant who, for the fifth time, will be played by Hugh Jackman.
Judging from the pic, Wolverine will certainly be "big in Japan" as he is buffer and veinier than ever, ready to tackle ninjas, samurai, and heartbreak in this adaptation of the iconic 1982 Wolverine comic book miniseries by Frank Miller.
The Wolverine goes into berserker rage at theaters on July 26, 2013.
The ghosts of the Overlook Hotel were supposed to drive its new caretaker insane to kill his family.
Unfortunately, the guy they ended up getting this time doesn't have a family and is already a dangerous homicidal mutant with a penchant for one-liners and pop-culture reference-dropping.
As a result, he just got a fun indoor Colorado vacation and the ghosts are already writing-off this year's "family-killing-a-palooza" as a rare mulligan.
Ohhh snap! Batman made the fatal mistake of going down the "rip on parental role models" route, completely oblivious to the clear opening that would leave for his web-slinging opponent.
Come on, Batman! There are so many other avenues to go down with Spidey. Dead girlfriends, divorce, being cloned, etc.
The folks of FakeLife have dropped a gigantic 90's nostalgia bomb with a blast radius too large to determine.
Sure, for some, the 90's was an odd time of borrowed styles, filled with screechy cookie-cutter post-Nirvana alternative acts, old-school style hip-hop about big butts, and 16-bit video game systems stretched to their absolute graphical limits.
However, for those who were younger during that period, it was a more magical time of Pokemon and Nickelodeon-infused color where songs about being a Barbie Girl in a Barbie World, would play in the background amidst split-screen GoldenEye deathmatches and Mario Kart races.
Indeed, it was a world where Michael Bay asteroid movies made you cry and the most sexually-scandalous book out there was not Fifty Shades of Grey, but The Starr Report.
Already feeling like one of the common folk because of the mere announcement of his iPhone 5's existence, this kid must be super-pissed at Mom and Dad for not paying Apple to engineer him the iPhone 6 in advance.
Batman's not having it. -- And that's coming from someone who already has the iPhone 8 paired with the Batmobile.
Long ago, another Batman said, "Some days, you just can't get rid of a bomb."
True...at least not without the right astronomically-expensive equipment only affordable to billionaire playboys who like to spend their free time cavorting in cool costumes as vigilantes.
Regardless, this little comic might actually change your understanding about what happened at the end of The Dark Knight Rises.
While Batman was called the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now, it turns out he might be better suited to be the pop-star it both deserves and needs.
Now, thanks to the folks at Crumb Stoppables, that concept no longer has to be imaginary, as we see Batman has saved his grizzled voice from interrogating criminals for the task of swooning the city with his smooth songs.
Justin Bieber's hit, "Girlfriend" has never sounded so chock full of JUSTICE.
Sure, Andy may have given him up, but that wasn't going to stop Buzz from fulfilling his destiny of saving the universe.
Now, (at least, according to this toy packaging, which is certainly legitimate,) he joins a freshman class of Avengers along with Kingpin, The Thing, and Batman as the newest members of Earth's Mightiest Heroes.
