Remember Mad Max's Legacy In This Great New Fury Road Trailer

As excited as I am about Avengers 2, I think Mad Max: Fury Road has a solid chance at being the surprise hit of the year. Its awesomeness comes in large part being a truly modern version of George Miller's original classic Mad Max movies — as illustrated perfectly in this new international "Legacy" trailer. » 4/15/15 2:40pm Wednesday 2:40pm

The Flash Gordon Reboot Movie Has A Director, And It's A Good One

It's Matthew Vaughn, who helped relaunch the X-Men for Fox with First Class and more recently turned Kingman into a surprise hit. As The Hollywood Reporter says, Vaughn is much in demand, so it makes sense Fox would want him in charge of a potentially big new scifi franchise. » 4/15/15 12:40pm Wednesday 12:40pm

Did Yoda And Obi-Wan Screw Princess Leia Over?

Sorry to forego my usual introductory nonsense, but I wanted to let you know that today’s installment of “Postal Apocalypse” is one of my favorites. Partially because it asks why Batman doesn’t learn magic and if the Force is sexist, but also because it has the best damn Flash TV show idea I’ve ever seen. Seriously! » 4/15/15 10:00am Wednesday 10:00am

What Do People Love Today That Might Not Hold Up In The Future?

Not everything that is great is great forever. Just because we love something now doesn't mean we'll still have the same affection for them in 10 years — if we have any affection for them at all. For instance, I've been really enjoying The Walking Dead for a while now... but I suspect it's a show I'll only… » 4/14/15 2:00pm Tuesday 2:00pm

10 Incredibly Stupid Ways That Superheroes and Villains Have Died

Superhero comics are full of death-defying action... that sometimes results in actual death. And for every epic, brilliant final stand, there's a death that's less than satisfying. There are plenty of candidates for the worst superhero and villain deaths of all time. But here are the 10 stupidest ways that… » 4/14/15 10:56am Tuesday 10:56am

This Flash And Arrow Promo Is So Ridiculous It's Kind Of Awesome

This was in Morning Spoilers , but it's so great I had to make sure everybody had a chance to see it. It's a three-minute promo where Arrow, the Flash, and other DC/CW-verse heroes and villains have a "superhero fight club" — and when I call it "great," I mean it's "dumb but also somehow hilarious." » 4/14/15 10:05am Tuesday 10:05am

Gotham’s Back! Oh, Wait, That’s Not A Good Thing.

Was my enjoyment of the last few episodes of Gotham genuine, or some kind of Stockholm syndrome? Was it easier to find the goofy fun in this show because I had made peace with it, or was I lying to myself? I don’t know. All I know is that last night’s episode, “Beasts of Prey,” was pretty terrible. » 4/14/15 7:30am Tuesday 7:30am

Olivia Munn Cast As Psylocke In X-Men: Apocalypse

Fan-favorite mutant Betsy Braddock, a.k.a. Psylocke, will be joining the X-Men movie-verse in Apocalypse, and she'll be played by Olivia Munn! Director Bryan Singer Instagrammed the newscasting, making her the newest addition to the next X-movie's expanding mutant cast, although she undoubtedly won't be the last. » 4/13/15 2:20pm Monday 2:20pm

The Power Rangers Movie Reboot Has A Director

It's Dean Israelite, who just directed the found-footage time travel movie Project Almanac earlier this year. Almanac didn't make a ton of money — only $22 million according to Box Office Mojo — but that was still nearly double its budget, and apparently Lionsgate really liked his pitch. » 4/13/15 10:20am Monday 10:20am
