Chris Evans is Captain Hottie.
Zachary Quinto's Spock: The Sleeper Leonard Nimoy will always be the quintessential Vulcan, but damn if Quinto didn't kick the heat up to five-alarm levels in the 2009 movie. His Spock was arrogant, angry, and dismissive, but also tender and intensely romantic with Uhura. Qunito played Spock as That Guy who is kind of a dick,... Continue Reading →
RDJ as Sherlock Holmes: The Determination If Robert Downey, Jr. is in a movie, I am going to see it. I think he is a brilliant actor. I was not prepared for how utterly exciting his performance would be as the intense and tough Sherlock Holmes. His Holmes is a logical genius marching to the beat of... Continue Reading →
Topless Robot recently dedicated a post to the 11 heroes geeky girls want to date, but who are also probably toxic — Batman, James T. Kirk, and such. With Valentine's Day just around the corner, that got us thinking about the crush-worthy characters who set our hearts aflutter. While some of them probably wouldn't be... Continue Reading →
Rumors are swirling that Lois Lane might not be the female lead in the upcoming Superman movie, but that hasn't stopped people from speculating on who should play her if and when the time comes. As much as I love Emily Blunt and Rachel McAdams, I'm a little annoyed by how monochromatic the entertainment media... Continue Reading →
The very handsome Brit Henry Cavill is the new cinema Superman, and for the life of me, I can't tell whether anyone cares. Too soon? It seems like we were just being introduced to Brandon Routh, who did a good job in a flawed movie, Superman Returns. I'm not all that excited about a reboot,... Continue Reading →
Over the years, various Cartoon Network shows based on DC Comics have given their source material a serious run for their money. I'd wager that many episodes of the late, great Justice League/Justice League Unlimited, Teen Titans and the current Batman: The Brave and the Bold, to name a few, have been just as entertaining...

So the first footage from the upcoming Green Lantern film is out and there's a whole lot of quipping and green blasty stuff happening. Ryan Reynolds is his usual charming self, and he looks like he's having a great time. Of course, geeks appear to be divided over whether the clip looks amazing or cheesy.... Continue Reading →
At the risk of offending Jessica Alba fans the world over, I think most people will agree that the last two Fantastic Four films were pointlesss. Aside from Chris Evans’ fun performance as Johnny Storm, the movies didn’t exactly set the world on fire, pun intended. However, an earlier movie adaptation of the Fantastic Four...

Under the Red Hood has some truly gripping moments that evoke the raw sadness of A Death in the Family.
Alas, the movement to cast Donald Glover as the next big-screen Spider-Man fell short, though not for lack of trying. V. and I were among the many “Community” fans who thought it would have been a stroke of genius to have Glover play everynerd/superhero Peter Parker in the forthcoming reboot. However, British actor Andrew Garfield... Continue Reading →
The hilarious NBC sitcom “Community” is on a short list of things we love as much as reading comic books. So cast member Donald Glover — aka junior college jock, Troy — had G3 at biblioteca when he began campaigning for the Peter Parker role in the forthcoming “Spider-Man” film reboot. Glover is a gem...

On the Entertainment Weekly website, writer Darrin Franich sparked a lively debate by suggesting that Beyonce play the lead in a yet-to-be-greenlit Wonder Woman movie. It’s not an entirely new discussion: In 2008, the megastar herself said that she’d love to rock Diana’s tiara, and that a black Wonder Woman would make a powerful, 21st-Century... Continue Reading →
With all due respect to Green Lantern and Batman, the live-action superhero movie DC/Warner Brothers ought to be making isn’t really about heroes at all. Two words: Secret. Six. Aside from being one of the most consistently good mainstream comics around, the current incarnation of Secret Six is a carnival ride of moral ambiguity; wildly... Continue Reading →
Rating: PG-13 Directors: Lauren Montgomery, Sam Liu Writer: Dwayne McDuffie Starring: William Baldwin, Mark Harmon, Chris Noth, Gina Torres and James Woods There’s an interesting premise at the core of the new DC animated movie “Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths:” Every choice we make results in an alternate reality, creating endless variations of ourselves...

The “Kick-Ass” trailer showcasing the foul-mouthed, cap-busting 11-year-old character Hit-Girl is bananas.
Zoe Saldana landed on geeks’ radar screens in a major way via J.J. Abrams’ “Star Trek” movie last year, but she started showing the community some love as early as 2002. That’s the year she starred as Laila, the marching band dance team captain Nick Cannon wooed in “Drumline.” Yeah, the movie was set at... Continue Reading →
If you asked the average non-geek to name three superheroes, chances are they'd say Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman — arguably the most iconic comic book heroes in existence. It's just as likely that few (if any) of these people would know anything about Lobo, a DC character who was introduced as a villain in... Continue Reading →
