  • For the moment, Brian Braddock is Captain Britain. But wouldn’t it be nice if he handed that mantle over to Faiza Hussain? Here’s Comics Alliance on why now’s a good time.
  • Want to hear what it sounds like when a spacecraft enters Jupiter’s magnetic field? It sounds reeealllly creepy.

  • Anna Kendrick wants to play Squirrel Girl?!? HOLLYWOOD: MAKE IT HAPPEN.

  • Here’s John Boyega, getting the internet all hyped up for Pacific Rim 2!
