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?!

Today in Indie Comics: Zac Gorman’s Magical Game Time

Ever wonder what’s going through the mind of your favorite video game characters once the console is off? Curious how the heroes you love spend their downtime between boss battles? Zac Gorman‘s gorgeous animated webcomic series Magical Game Time explores exactly those thoughts. The art’s use of texture and muted colors create a perfect isolated and self-reflective feel to the comic, which explores the inner lives of some of gamedom’s most iconic heroes as well as sharing the artist’s own musings on the way that video games, their stories, and their characters affect the lives of the players.

Chris Evans to Quit Acting Post-Marvel, Scarlett Johansson Still Wants a Solo Black Widow Movie

Sorry, Chris Evans fans, but after the actor finally hangs up his shield, whenever that is, he has no intention of returning to the movies… in front of the camera, anyway. I’m gonna go re-watch Sunshine and be sad.

The Mystery Behind Andrew Garfield and Batkid’s Canceled Oscar Appearance

The Academy Awards decided to go with a theme this year – heroes. They didn’t go overboard but did have a few moments where they celebrating heroes, both real and fictional. At one point, Captain America: The Winter Soldier star Chris Evans introduced a montage of film clips pertaining to the theme, but that’s not what was originally intended according to new reports. Batkid, the adorable boy who San Francisco gave a hero’s adventure to back in November, was supposed to make a surprise appearance with none other than The Amazing Spider-Man’s Andrew Garfield. So why didn’t it happen?

Man of Steel 2’s Costume Designer Talks Wonder Woman’s Outfit

“It’s so important to get her right. She really deserves to be presented on-screen in her full glory. So what I do is I look at the history of how the character has been presented on the big-screen, and the small-screen, and in comic books, and graphic novels. We process it all. Then we kind of put that aside and work out what is right for our film, for the cinematic universe that our director Zack Snyder is putting together. We try and create a Wonder Woman that’s relevant for today’s audiences.” —It’s not much, but this quote from Man of Steel 2 costume designer Michael Wilkinson is the first we’ve heard about Wonder Woman’s first movie outfit (unless you count The Lego Movie, which… plastic minifig clothes). Asked whether it’s realistic for her to be “running around fighting crime in what we typically see her in,” Wilkinson responded: “Absolutely! I mean, you just have to look at the gladiators from ancient Rome, they did their thing in little loin clothes and a shield….It works for Thor, it works for 300, so let’s see what happens.” Granted, Thor and Leonidas have never, to my knowledge, fought in heels, but I love his quick “Pssht, no” response to the implication that superheroines’ costumes might mean they’re less kick-ass than their male counterparts.

Yes, I chose the photo just to mess with you.

Patrick Wilson In Talks to Join Ant-Man, Probably Not As Another Version of Ant-Man

Two Ant-Men—Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas—seems about the maximum for any particular film, so I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that the character Patrick Wilson is in talks to play, about whom we know exactly nothing, isn’t a third. But, really, that’s all speculation on my part. Maybe he is up for the role of a third Ant-Man. Maybe everyone in this movie is playing Ant-Man. Including Evangeline Lilly, if she ends up getting cast.

Here’s what that film might look like:

Gal Gadot Posts Another Workout Selfie, Convinces Us She Can Actually Fly

She has to have an interesting relationship with gravity to be able to balance on that ball, pose, and take a picture at the same time. Or have amazing core strength. Either way: Gal Gadot is not going to take people saying she doesn’t have the “right” body type for Wonder Woman sitting down.
