Love these Avengers logo illustrations by Anthony Genuardi.

What might Batman vs. Superman be like? A little something like this, perhaps:

Once Hollywood runs out of reboots to make, they should just start making movies like this.

  1. What if Loki dies in this movie? They've already said he won't be in Avengers 2 and the fans love him too much to just forget about him as the film universe moves on. Death is the only way.

    I hadn't heard about the Chris Carter AMC show, but now I'm super excited for it! Another X-Files alum getting an AMC show? Yes, please! I hope they make a new movie too. The last one was sort of crappy for several reasons, but I think they can continue the series in a good way if they return to the colonization mythology.

    And lastly, I'll leave you with this, just in case you didn't see it flying around the internet when Bryan Cranston's Lex Luthor was announced.

  2. Oh and in those Man of Steel style logos and titles Martian Manhunter has the absolute worst nickname. It's probably why he won't get his own movie.

  4. I dropped off a while ago, but I heard it got better. Perhaps someday I'll catch up, too. :)

  5. I'm dreading the fact that Loki might "redeem" himself in this movie, but ... as we've seen with Coulson (and from watching Syfy), no one stays dead long.


    I'm assuming that screengrab is from Braking Bad? Hilarious.

  6. Haha, yeah ... that and he's an alien. That's almost as bad as being a woman. ;)

  7. Ducktales! I loved this show so much growing up. It was the first show I remember wanting to watch each week and making sure I didn't miss an episode. I had a lot of fun in the Money Bin at comic-con. They were playing the theme song over speakers and everyone was singing along. I'm thinking maybe a picture of us playing around with the giant coins might be our Christmas card this year.
