Donald Glover is a big Spider-Man fan, and when casting for The Amazing Spider-Man reboot was happening in 2010, fans circulated a petition to get him cast to play Spidey on the big screen. It didn’t happen, but Brian Michael Bendis took note. He ended up basing Miles Morales on Glover when the character took on the role of Spider-Man in 2011.

Now, everything has come full circle with news that Donald Glover will be voicing Morales in upcoming episodes of Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors which will air in 2015. Glover talked to USA Today about why he likes the character saying:

“He can be anybody. Spider-Man could be a girl. Spider-Man could be an old man. You don’t know. So I just tried to be as me as possible, because you’re always just going to bring it back to yourself when you watch the show.”

Catch new episodes of Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors when the latest season debuts this Sunday at 9AM on Disney XD.

These cartoon-like versions of the Breaking Bad characters are the work of Trevor Grove of Sideshow Collectibles along with his brother Troy. From Grove’s Facebook page:

Here is a preview of an ongoing personal project I’ve been collaborating on with my brother, Troy, since last year’s final season of “Breaking Bad”.
The idea was to create a series of miniature (approximately 5″-6″ tall) stylized figures based on many of the characters from the show.
These are the in-progress wax sculptures, along with some photoshop color composites we’ve done to better visualize the final outcome.

They make everyone look kind of cute, in a deadly sort of way.

Do you remember the first time you saw a rocket launch? It looks like little Shaylee will never forget, and her fast-acting Dad managed to catch her reaction on video. And no matter what cool grown-ups say, we all scream “wocketship!” in our heads when we see one. Warning: This may kill you with cute.

You plan every last detail of your wedding to make sure everything is perfect, but you don’t plan to have The Dark Knight Rises filming at your chapel during the ceremony. That’s what happened to this couple back in 2011 when the film was shooting in Pittsburgh. A redditor who was at the wedding said:

I was actually there watching the filming when this happened. There was no way the bride and groom could have known they were going to be filming a movie when they booked the chapel, so it basically caused a lot of inconvenience for them and their guests as there were explosions and gunfire on the street during their wedding. The producers were cool about it through; and parked one of the batmobiles [the Tumbler] in front of the chapel so the bride and groom could take a bunch of pictures in it.

Most people learned of the story this week through Reddit, but it was big news in Pittsburg when it happened because the groom was local sports reporter Rich Walsh of WPXI. He even did a radio interview to share all the details of how it went down. This has got to be one of the greatest unplanned wedding moments ever.

Now here’s something that you initially think is awesome, but then you think about it a little bit more. That’s when you realize how stupidly dangerous it is.

The iron is sold by itself and then you can just snap it onto any standard Bic lighter. All you do is hold the flame on the metal end for a minute or two, and it’s ready to brand stuff with the Bat Signal.

Needless to say don’t go using this thing on anything that’s highly flammable…or living.
