  1. How It Should Have Ended Discusses Superhero Movies, the Oscars, Reboots

    Watch it for the ending. Trust us.

    I think my favorite thing about the HISHE YouTube channel is that over time, it's slowly evolved from a series of gimmicky movie parodies to what basically amounts to a superhero-themed episode of Seinfeld. Which I think makes Batman George? Yeah, Batman is totally George. Anyway, check out this edition of Super Café where they basically talk about nothing and it's the best thing ever.

  2. Sarah Michelle Gellar Joins Cast Of Star Wars Rebels, Let’s Speculate Wildly About Her Role!

    I'm a jedi, ask me how!

    As if last night's mind-blowing season finale revelation wasn't enough, now Star Wars Rebels fans are due for another shock—Buffy the Vampire Slayer herself is joining the voice cast as an undisclosed character. Does the Star Wars universe have, like, a race of space vampires? Because that would be pretty ironic.

  4. Princess Bubblegum Makes the Best Batgirl in This Awesome Adventure Time Series

    I guess I'm TOTALLY VENGEANCE now.

    Unfortunately, these exceptional 3D designs by Volatile Vertex are not real action figures you can buy—or maybe that's a good thing, because I don't know how much money I would be willing to spend on this amazing Princess BubbleBat but it would probably be all of it. And don't even get me started on Alfred!BMO, because I cannot handle how cute they are.

  5. First Footage of the Sand Snakes In Game Of Thrones, Plus Many Fabulous Weapons

    Huh. I didn't think it was that chilly in Dorne.

    Game of Thrones Weapons Master Tommy Dunne is tasked with creating all of the various daggers, whips, and swords of Westeros—basically, he's indirectly had a hand in killing most of your favorite characters. In this video for season 5 he shows all the new toys he made for Areo Hotah and the Sand Snakes of Dorne, who—spoiler alert!—all appear to have switched weapons with each other since they first appeared in the books.

  6. [UPDATED] Big Ol’ Rumor Time: Drew Goddard To Write Marvel and Sony’s Spider-Man

    We've never gonna get a more appropriately named director than Mark Webb, though.

    Take it with a grain of salt, but if this news turns out to be true, then it looks like the latest Spidey flick will soon have its director. Now, if we could just hurry up and cast the lead already...

  7. Surprise! Director of Power/Rangers Doesn’t Give a Crap About Power Rangers

    Megazord haha more like megaDUH.

    We promise, we'll stop writing about this thirteen-minute long, overly gritty "fan film" when it stops being so endlessly fascinating to us.

  9. All Our Dreams Are Coming True: M.O.D.O.K. Is Getting a Romance Arc In New Mini-Series

    Be still my GIANT MUTATED HEART WHICH PUMPS BLOOD TO MY SUPERIOR BRAIN

    Remember when some genius Internet denizen started to rewrite Fifty Shades of Grey, but with the Mechanical Organism Designed Only For Killing in the role of Christian Grey? Well strap in, because it's happening for realio now! Okay, not so much the bondage, but in the upcoming M.O.D.O.K. Assassin mini-series by Chris Yost and Amilcar Pinna, our favorite mutated supervillain (sorry Krang) is going to fall in loooooooove.

  10. Dead Or Alive 5 Tournament Places Soft Ban on Overly Sexy Costumes

    So was any part of the game not banned, then?

    As a franchise, Dead or Alive is pretty notorious for its fixation on its female characters' bodies—which, to be fair, is a very deliberately earned reputation given that the game has a "OMG Breast Motion" button that does exactly what you'd expect it to do. But FreeStepDodge, one of the most prominent DOA online tournaments, wants to do its best to turn everyone's attention away from the cleavage and back to the fighting mechanics. Will it work? Probably not, I bet.

  11. Ancient Babylonians Were Just Like Us, Complained About Poor Service From Retailers

    They were into Yelp before it was cool.

    You millennials today have it so easy, you know. Time was if you wanted your local copper ore salesman to know you were unsatisfied with his merchandise, you had to painstakingly chisel out your frustrations onto a clay tablet, send it along with your messenger through a part of town where he might get jumped by one of your family's various enemies, and hope the guy on the other end even knew how to read.

  12. Think Like A Man‘s Meagan Good To Star In Minority Report Reboot

    Good job, Fox!

    Remember how optimistic we were about the upcoming Minority Report TV reboot when we learned Fox was looking to cast a female protagonist? Well, they doubled down pretty awesomely on their casting choice.

  13. Spaced Newbie Recap, “Beginnings”

    There are no filmmakers like Edgar Wright. Wright has taken what’s fun about the cinematic experience and projected it through a lens that’s full of cheeky humor, impressively diverse visuals, and an emotional thorough line. All the while, he takes familiar narratives (buddy cop movies, zombies and aliens) and compresses them into a more singular story, while simultaneously broadening the topics to find something that can reach past those formulaic tropes.

  14. Dressvergent, A YA Dystopian Novel Born From the Internet’s Obsession With Colors

    Starring Strong Female Protagonist™ Catalina Midnight.

    No one knows how the world was in the Before Times—the Leaders made sure to erase all the historical documents they could when they first rose to power—but what we do know is that our Society first truly began with the advent of the Picture.

  15. Officially Official: Harrison Ford Will Star In The Blade Runner Sequel, So I Guess He’s Not a Replicant

    It also picks up a new director who isn't Ridley Scott.

    Either that or he's a really well-crafted one that ages. We should probably give him the test anyway, just to be sure.

  16. The Best Of Twitter’s Reaction To #LlamaWatch

    We llove you, llamas.

    Earlier today the entire Internet came to a standstill not in celebration of our newfound Net Neutrality victory, but instead to watch a pair of escaped llamas frantically prance their way through the streets of Phoenix, Arizona, as dozens of men chased them in hot pursuit. Eventually the two were llamapprehended, but not until we had fully welcomed them into our hearts, as well as our social media networks. Here's the best set of jokes we could round up for you—with a truck and a lasso.

  17. There Are Fewer Women On Corporate Boards Then There are Men Named John, Robert, William or James

    Aggggh.

    You know you have a problem with gender diversity when you can start dividing your number of men by their names and there's still more of them than there are women of any name.

  18. Here’s Why Everyone Is Mad at This Four-Year-Old Axe Body Spray Ad

    Other than that it's terrible, of course.

    Axe Body Spray has a much-deserved reputation for buying into the worst, most toxic stereotypes about gender roles in an effort to get middle school-aged bros who don't know any better to buy their sickening scents. But this ad in particular, which emasculates men who dare to be friends with women by suggesting they have braids, has been making the rounds on the Internet this morning.

  19. New Fantastic Four Stills Show Us Four, Not So Much Fantastic

    I guess Clobberin' Time comes later?

    Pretty much all of us want Josh Trank and Simon Konberg's Fantastic Four reboot to do well (except for the people who think Marvel can snap those characters back up like they did with Spider-Man if the movie fails, of course). But you've got to admit that Fox really doesn't know how to promote this film, as evidenced from these lackluster pictures from this month's Empire Magazine. Like, jeez, Arrested Development got me more excited for the Fantastic Four than this does.
