  1. Things We Saw Today: The Absurdity That Was “Portable” Gaming in 1991

    "Just sling this white Xbox over your shoulder..."

    I can't tell if this is an ad or photographic evidence taken just seconds before this kid was wedgied into oblivion and had his little gaming briefcase stolen. I'm also pretty sure that case is larger than if he just carried a whole NES around with him and called it "portable gaming."

  3. The Second Full Trailer For The Death Of Superman Lives Is Here, And It’s Crazy

    Still nothing as weird as the missing "s" in Batman v Superman. I'm never gonna let it go, Snyder.

    This second trailer for the fan-backed documentary The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? has some breathtakingly weird details about the Nic Cage-starring, Tim Burton-directed, Kevin Smith-penned movie that never was. Long-haired Cage in a fluorescent bubble suit? Check. Multiple doomsday scenarios? Double check. Kevin Smith's requisite giant spiders? Hoo boy. We were not worthy.

  4. Kevin Smith’s New Movie Will Star His and Johnny Depp’s Daughters as a Pair of Yoga-Obsessed Teenage Girl Superheroes

    And Scott McCall from Teen Wolf will be there. I don't know what to say.

    In case you couldn't tell from the title, this new movie with Lily-Rose Depp and Harley Quinn Smith sounds pretty weird. To start: It's called Yoga Hosers.

  5. Documentary About Tim Burton’s Failed Superman Lives Gets a Trailer, Needs Your Help

    Is it because he wanted to give Superman a funny hat?

    The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? is a documentary about the Tim Burton-directed, Kevin Smith-penned, Nic Cage-starring Superman movie that might have been. We've all heard a lot of rumors about the production and what went wrong, and this documentary seeks to find the truth, but it's running out of money.

  8. Things We Saw Today: Game Of Thrones’ Wall On The Floor

    Things We Saw Today

    This, incredibly, is a flat painting on the ground in London. Joe Hill, founder of 3D Joe and Max, said, “We were delighted to be approached by HBO to commission this artwork – we knew we had to do something really special to match the sheer scale of this phenomenal TV show that has swept the globe. That’s why The Wall in 3D works from more than one angle – making it a first in the 3D art world.” (via WinterIsComing)

  12. The Wayne Foundation Is Real and We Spoke to the Woman Who Runs It

    One fundraiser with Bruce Wayne's pals and they'd never need another cent.

    In the comics, The Wayne Foundation is a way for Bruce Wayne to help his city in ways that Batman cannot. In the real world, it's a charity that fights the sexual exploitation and trafficking of children. We spoke to its president Jamie Walton about starting the foundation with Kevin Smith, and which superheroes she'd like to see donate.

  13. Stop Whining about Ben Affleck Playing Batman, He is Perfect for the Part

    Affleck could actually just be Batman in real life.

    Friday was my day off, so I wasn't in the Geekosystem offices to yell at Victoria McNally about how wrong she is to hate Ben Affleck being cast as Batman. I believe in Ben Affleck, but more importantly, movies don't get cast by Internet opinion. Batfleck is happening, so you might as well get on board. Here's a moving speech to convince you.

  14. Bill Nye Explains His Superman Shaving Theory, Officially Becomes Friends With Geekosystem

    We're, like, best buds now. Also his theory is pretty great.

    Bill Nye is a national treasure. He's who I'd imagine Superman would actually turn to solve a problem like shaving, so it's a no-brainer to see him included in the Gillette campaign to figure out how the Last Son of Krypton loses his beard in Man of Steel. I had the chance to speak with him about his scientific approach to Kryptonian shaving, and then we became friends.

  15. My Day-Long 15-Minute Interview With Kevin Smith About Superman’s Beard

    Kevin Smith talked to us about how Superman shaves, why he's not Kickstarting Clerks 3, and more in the longest 15-minute interview ever.

    Last week, I had the immense pleasure of interviewing filmmaker Kevin Smith about his theory of how Superman shaves as part of the Gillette How Does The Man of Steel Shave? campaign. I was only supposed to talk to Kevin for 15 minutes, but ended up spending the better part of the day with him talking about Superman, filmmaking, Clerks 3, and Kickstarter.

  16. Gillette Teams Up With Geek Celebs to Wonder About Superman’s Shaving Techniques [Video]

    My guess? He flies backwards around the world until his beard shrinks back into his face.

    It might not have occurred to you while watching the Man of Steel trailer that since Clark Kent is depicted as having a beard in one shot, at some point he had to learn how to shave -- which would probably be incredibly difficult considering the strength of his hair follicles. Razor company Gillette has definitely picked up on this, of course. They've launched a tie-in marketing campaign to postulate about how the Last Son of Krypton manages to look so clean-shaven all the time, and they've enlisted the help of Bill Nye, Mayim Bialik, Kevin Smith,and the Mythbusters to do it.

  17. A Friendly Chat About National Geographic’s Comic Store Heroes

    Shameless Self-Promotion

    It's being billed as a subsititue for those who can't make it to Comic-Con this year. National Geographic Channel's Comic Store Heroes follows three staffers of Midtown Comics in New York as well as their customers and every day comic book fans, on their road to New York Comic Con. The comparison is evident - is this another Comic Book Men? Thor Parker, the Social Marketing and Events Director for Midtown, and I are here to tell you "no." Why am I joining in the conversation? I'm one of the fans featured in the special airing tomorrow, July 13, on the National Geographic Channel. Hit the jump to hear what Parker and I have to say about the special, the evolution of geek culture, the comparisons with CBM, and lots more!

  18. NYCC Entertainment Guests Announced… Including Chad Michael Murray?

    Vital Information for Your Everyday Life

    With San Diego Comic Con well in the summer’s past, it’s the east coast’s turn to unleash its urban geeks. For most comic conventions, everyone anticipates which celebrities of nerd-dom will ultimately show up at one of these conventions to promote his or her new project. The New York City Comic Con is still a month away (Oct. 13-16), but some interesting and surprising guests have been announced (with more hopefuls to still be added to the guest list), including: Luke Skywalker himself Mark Hamill, Jay & Silent Bob (Kevin Smith/Jason Mewes), actor Jason Momoa from this summer’s Conan the Barbarian, director John Landis, actress Rose McGowan, actor Stephan Lang, actor Kevin Sorbo of Hercules, Lou “the one and only Hulk” Ferrigno and -- if you thought it couldn’t get any more random -- actor Chad Michael Murray(?)

  19. AMC Picks Up Kevin Smith’s Secret Stash

    and let it be known

AMC has picked up an unscripted show entitled Secret Stash that will take place in Smith's Red Bank, New Jersey comic book shop, Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash. It will be awesome, and probably bleeped out quite a bit.

  20. Kevin Smith’s Epic Twitter Monologue About How and Why Movies Get Made

    We get it: Saying things on Twitter doesn't make them instantly newsworthy, 'techy,' or interesting. However, it does allow famous or otherwise inaccessible people to communicate directly with their fans in interesting ways, and this is something that cult filmmaker Kevin Smith is very good at. This afternoon, he posted an epic monologue on Twitter that revealed the dark truth that studios fund projects because they make money, explained how filmmakers and other creative people could find fulfillment and success anyway, and, as a bonus, presented a theory of artistry that divides people into the categories of Hal Jordan, Superman, and Batman.
