She Must Have Hooked-Up With A Symbiote

Sure, she's gained Spider-Man-like powers and can now mimic any outfit she wants. 

Unfortunately, it comes at the cost of being enslaved by a mercurial symbiotic alien creature that makes you have extremely bad dental hygiene and a bizarre appetite for brains.

Good thing this is just well-executed face-paint, because fashion is not worth all of that.

Batman And Bane Become Roommates

Posted September 3, 2012 - By Joseph Baxter

The cast of The Real World: Gotham only needed two people, and for good reason: Chemistry.

Now, the hero Gotham deserves and the man who once swore to be its reckoning are forced to share a claustrophobically-small studio apartment, essentially ensuring that their epic battles continue...over bathroom time.

When they order Chinese take-out and the check is fairly-split, they have Bane's permission to dine.

Bane Is Sad That No One Cares

Bane Is Sad That No One Cares

It turns out that the only reason he wanted to become Gotham's reckoning, was due to the never-ending rejection and mockery he absorbed when trying to get into the world of fashionable winter coats for men. As a result, it forced him to resort to a gimmicky oxygen mask.

At this point, pulling it off would be "extremely painful," due to the scarring memories. Even his arch-nemesis, Batman had to temporarily bury the bat-hatchet and show a little bat-empathy.

The Avengers Deleted Scene: Sad Captain America

The Avengers keeps its hype train chugging with yet another deleted scene from the mega-film's upcoming September 25 DVD/Blu-ray release.

Featuring yet another Stan Lee cameo, this deleted scene really drives home the idea of Captain America being a man who finds himself a living relic in world far more complex than he can imagine.

While the last clip focused on Maria Hill's debriefing, this time, we get an extended version of scenes with a wistful Steve Rogers as he truly reflects on the ramification of being frozen for over half-century. He solemnly deals with the idea that all the people he cared about in his life are either dead or too-far-removed from him to conjure-up the courage to pick up the phone.

Check out Cap getting caught up in his emo-ness below!

The clear philosophical differences of superhero-dom between Batman and The Avengers are on full display in this impromptu, likely one-time team-up.

If it proves one thing, it's that Batman is just a total Dark Knight Debbie Downer. While after a tough battle, The Avengers want to chill and have beers, Batman just wants to be chilly and savor his tears.

It looks like the lonely hero that Gotham deserves will be patrolling the streets solo tonight with a miserable smirk on his face and The Sisters of Mercy on his ipod...err, Batipod.

Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. TV Pilot Greenlit By ABC

It appears that Marvel's all-encompassing movie universe centered around The Avengers is about to expand to the realm of the small screen. Not only that, but it seems that it will involve the film's director, Joss Whedon.

According to Deadline, ABC has greenlit a pilot for a live-action TV series centered on Nick Fury's secret government defense agency, S.H.I.E.L.D. (Which is a lot easier than saying, "Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division.")

The pilot, which is set to start production immediately, will be co-written by Joss Whedon along with brother, Jed Whedon (Dollhouse, Spartacus: Vengeance), and Maurissa Tancharoen (Dollhouse. Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.)

How will the Marvel's grand movieverse transition to television?

Periodic Table Of Batman

Periodic Table Of Batman

It's not a hard task to break down the essence of justice itself into its chemical elements.

Essentially, it's a lot of sodium and a critical dash of "pissed-off because of dead parents." When put together, it spells trouble for all criminal scum, and possibly for Magnesium, which just happened to be in its way.

With the DVD/Blu-ray release of The Avengers coming ever so close on September 25, Marvel has officially released the film's alternate opening, which will be included on the home releases along with other deleted material.

In the scene, we jump to after the events of the film where Cobie Smulders' S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Maria Hill is in a debriefing with her superiors over the Earth-shattering invasion by angry aliens; the culmination of a series of events started by Nick Fury's attempt to harness the power of the glowing cosmic relic, the Tesseract.

It would have been an interesting way to begin the film, essentially foreshadowing the level of carnage that would be ahead. However, it's a bit too slow in tone to start a mega-movie like The Avengers.

Fascinating stuff, nonetheless.

Batman's BatYaris Is Here!

Batman's BatYaris Is Here!

The loss of his tumblers was obviously a huge blow to Batman. 

While he was forced to downgrade a bit for the new Batmobile, he would start to embrace the narrative that replacing the Batmobile with an economical hybrid hatchback was just his way of going green.

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.
