Avengers Olympians

Avengers Olympians

Are the Olympics not quite your bag? Are you bored by the constant coverage and posts on unrelated blogs (like this one, I suppose) using them for timely hit-getting material?

Well, maybe if you were able to imagine the athletic Olympians as members of The Avengers, things might be a little more palatable.

Now, thanks to ira_scargeear, the idea of the U.S. Olympic team being able to say "we have a Hulk" is easier to grasp.

Check out the rest below!

Batman Merchandise Reaches A New Level

On the package, there's a quote from Batman that says:

"It's not what I produce, but who I imagine I'm with while producing it that defines me."

I think "Creamies" is just the Walmart generic equivalent of the product. And "Meadow Gold," well...you just knew that Booster Gold had to get in on the act, too.

The Gotham Times Can't Spell

The Gotham Times Can't Spell

At the beginning of The Dark Knight Rises, things are so relatively peaceful in Gotham that even a cat burglar stealing jewels could make the front page of the Gotham Times. The Dent Act definitely left things a little laid back.

While no writer is beyond the occasional grammatical typa...err, typo, Gotham's Fourth Estate just may want to "batten down the hatches" on a little thing called spell-check.

Hipster Spider-Man

"Uh, web-swinging is SO passe. Nowadays I like to ride my retro-ized bicycle around New York, while refreshing myself with a cool glass of seltzer water. (And Pabst after sundown.)

Now, if you don't mind, I'm going over to Venom's house to remind him that I wore black costumes before it was cool and then hit the local record store to buy new vinyl albums to rip into MP3 which I could easily just download straight-up for half the price."

The Wolverine Begins Shooting Next Week

It seems that X-Men prequel-sequel, The Wolverine has finally sharpened its admantium claws, ready to finally slice its way into filming.

After years of obstacles which included the exit of director, Darren Aronofsky (James Mangold has since taken the chair), the recent exit of would-be villainess, Jessica Biel, along with various delays and timing issues, the sequel to 2009 X-prequel, X-Men Origins: Wolverine is officially a go when filming starts at the beginning of August in Hugh Jackman's home country of Australia.

What will this mean for the film that for years has been teased to adapt the famous 1982 Wolverine miniseries by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller which takes place in Japan?

Superman: Man of Steel Teaser Trailer

A set of two variant teaser trailer for Superman's upcoming return to the big screen, Man of Steel have hit.

While not quite as scene-revealing as the footage shown at Comic-Con, these trailer are able to hauntingly convey the essence of the film's focus: That Clark Kent/Kal-El fell to Earth and has since been chased by a destiny; one that he has seemingly tried to avoid up until this point by wandering, taking odd jobs, and doing his best impression of Bruce Banner, hitchhiking (for some reason) on remote roads.

Check out both trailer variants below to see "Deadliest Catch Superman" in action!

Warning: Bad Language.

It turns out that Batman's average nights on patrol are not quite as enthralling as the films lead us to believe.

It's unlikely that The Dark Knight Rises will feature any scenes where Batman comes to an impassioned defense of the work of Tyler Perry, or discovers the wonders of seeing his Tumbler on Tumblr.

However, this glimpse into the mundane aspects of an average, mega-boring Bat-night might make you think twice about poo-pooing the film's early detractors on Rotten Tomatoes, especially if even a small part of it made the cut in Christopher Nolan's Bat-swan-song.

Warning: Bad Language.

How can we expect the The Dark Knight to "rise" if he can't even grasp such a simple concept?

The answer is that we don't. This, above all else might be why Batman ended up taking the blame for Two-Face's crimes. It was a better fate than letting the entire world know what a dumbass he really was.

This is not surprising considering that even Batman doesn't know that he's really Bruce Wayne.

As we gear up for The Dark Knight Rises this weekend, it certainly won't hurt to take an evaluative look at its predecessor, The Dark Knight.

He's the hero Gotham deserves...to spy on people in the bathroom and take blame for stuff based on shady logic convenient to a plot point about silent sacrifice and other complex Kierkegaardian concepts that make you want to mope around the house and shoot jaywalkers in Grand Theft Auto IV all day.

If there's anything that the film has taught us, it's that what evil fears the most is high-tech gadgets of questionable feasibility and grizzled voices. -- The grizzlier the better.
