Justice League gives Themysciran armor the sexy treatment

The warriors of Themyscira, who hit the big screen in Wonder Woman in May 2017, did not need a costume update for Justice League, November 2017, but we got one anyway because some people still think glamorous titillation is a priority.

Check out the first teaser for The Incredibles 2

There isn't much to go on in this teaser, honestly, but it does confirm a few things. Baby Jack Jack has a couple of new powers, and the Incredibles theme still pulls at my heartstrings the way it used too.  The sequel will ...

Rumor: Jake Gyllenhaal wanted for Batman

(Note: I'm referring to Gyllenhal's creepy turn in the film Nightcrawler, not the X-Men character. I suppose explaining a joke means it's not a good one, but here we are.) It's been pretty clear that Ben Affleck hasn't been having as m...

Danger Girl movie rights scooped up

I'd like to tell you that I got into the Danger Girl comics when they first came out because I was into their tongue-in-cheek take on the James Bond spy film genre. But I was a teenage boy in the 90s so I think we all know why I picked...

A Quiet Place gets its first, very silent trailer

Review: Inhumans (Season 1)

Well, I did it. I watched the whole thing. A few weeks ago, I wrote (well, ranted) about my impressions of the first two episodes of Inhumans. I’m not, frankly, all that confident I have much to say about the thing as a whole that&rsq...
