Holy Rusted Metal Batman!

Batman Gets a 75th Birthday Present: A New Batman Beyond Short With Kevin Conroy [VIDEO]

Bruce Timm’s Batman: The Animated Series-style short wasn’t the only video being released in celebration of Bats’ 75th anniversary. Now there’s a new Batman Beyond short by Darwyn Cooke and featuring the vocal talents of Kevin Conroy and Will Friedle.

Now can someone tell me why there’s a dinosaur in the Batcave?

Classic Video Game Characters Cosplay Other Classic Video Game Characters

The art of Jorge Vargas takes us to the realm of video game-ception. BRRRRRRRM. No, I’m never going to stop using the Inception BRRRRRM. Why do you ask? I don’t care if it’s a bit old hat by now.


This is just like magic!

Astrid Plays Quidditch In This New How to Train Your Dragon 2 Clip [VIDEO]

Quidditch with dragons and sheep, and a different court setup, and probably slightly different rules and more of a lax attitude toward fire, but at least some of the people responsible for this scene are probably Harry Potter fans, just sayin’. And! And! How nice it is to see Astrid, who’s been mostly absent from the previous trailers, present and actually doing things?

Watch the Opening Scene From In Your Eyes, AKA Joss Whedon Writes a Nicholas Sparks Movie [VIDEO]

Anyway, “almost like Joss Whedon does Nicholas Sparks” is how co-star Zoe Kazan described In Your Eyes, which is premiering this weekend at the Tribeca Film Festival. Brin Hill is directing the film, while the Whedonater wrote it. After seeing the first few minutes I’m… curious, at the very least. Hit the jump for a description of what you just watched.



Vikings Visual Recap: “Boneless”

I didn’t like this episode as much as I liked the previous ones, but it did introduce us to Vegetarian Murder Princess Kwenthrith, and that’s a definite plus. She’s like a hammy ’80s action movie villainess. The love I feel for her is deep and true. What did you think of “Boneless”?

Nathan Fillion: Actor, Icon, Superhero Pedicurist [VIDEO]

We didn’t need to love Nathan Fillion more than we already do, but he didn’t seem to take that into consideration when he accepted his girlfriend’s challenge to give her a superhero logo pedicure, did he?!

In the Name of the Moon, Sailor Avengers, Assemble!

How much cooler would The Avengers have been if the giant alien battle at the end was preceded by a five-minute transformation sequence? Honestly. Also, Victoria at our sister site Geekosystem suggested Nick Fury as Tuxedo Mask, and now I can’t unsee it. I’m going to turn around, and after ten minutes when I turn back if someone hasn’t Photoshopped this I am going to be very disappointed in all of you.

Edit: Victoria herself stepped up to the challenge. Now who’s going to Photoshop an eyepatch, top hat, and swishy cape on Nick Fury? I’m waiting.

Things We Saw Today: A Giant Cardboard Velociraptor With Googly Eyes

We get a lot of emails about Kickstarter campaigns around these parts, but this one—”KitRex: the 3D paper velociraptor that you build yourself!“—caught our eye. Fun tip: Having a campaign that involves dinosaurs and googly eyes never hurts. (Thanks to tipster Amy)


We Can Be Heroes

NBC Is Doing Even More Heroes That Will Be Impossible For Them to Screw Up More Than They Already Have

Look at it this way: As big a disappointment as Heroes Reborn and its just-announced prequel series might be, there’s no way it can be as big a disappointment as the OG Heroes became. Right? Right?!

Maleficent And Her Cheekbones Get Their Own Funko Figurine

Angelina Jolie‘s prosthetic cheekbones don’t really translate all that well to Funko’s round-faced aesthetic, but I’ll give them a pass because this is a really cool figure. See Evil Cheekbones in action in a new Maleficent featurette behind the jump, where you’re also find a Princess Aurora Funko.
