superman lives

Have you ever wondered what the legendary failed film Superman Lives would have been like if it actually made it all the way to theaters? Well sweet, sweet answers are on the horizon.

The fan-funded documentary film The Death Of Superman Lives: What Happened? now has a trailer, and it includes snippets of interviews with director Tim Burton and screenwriter Kevin Smith, along with some test footage of Nic Cage flying. After looking at the trailer, I’m starting to wish this movie had actually happened. It looks like it would have been a Nic Cage / Tim Burton supernova of insanity.

The project is still looking for funds to finish post-production, but we have no doubt that it will reach its final goals. Check out the trailer after the break…

And there’s the ending of the series. Daenerys Targaryen becomes some sort of God and her enemies suddenly and mysteriously die horrible deaths.

super jedi

I don’t think it’s necessary to read to much into this image tweeted by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder featuring Henry Cavill’s Superman as a Jedi. Still, imagine that crossover.

Actually, don’t do that. Forget I said anything.

The Flux Capacitor Car Charger was another one of Think Geek’s April Fool’s products, but it became pretty obvious that it would sell like hotcakes if they actually made it.

So they have.

Indeed, we have just received word that the Back To The Future-inspired charger will be available starting in September 2014. From the product page:

Each Flux Capacitor Car Charger has two USB ports, each capable of charging almost any USB powered device (it pumps out 2.1 Amps). But it also has that beautiful Flux Capacitor light sequence we all know and love. Even traffic jams (either terrestrial or aerial (if your car is powered by Mr. Fusion)) won’t bother you because your device will be charging and the Flux Capacitor Car Charger’s pulse will make you feel more important than anyone else. It’s time to write your name in your underwear, Calvin, and get yourself a Flux Capacitor Car Charger in the present (so you can enjoy it in the future).

If you didn’t watch The Colbert Report last night, you might not know that Sam Wilson will be taking over as Captain America. The news was officially announced by Joe Quesada, Marvel Entertainment’s Chief Creative Officer.

For many, the news is not all that unexpected (unlike announcing that the new Thor is a woman on The View of all places).

Marvel also took to Twitter to post the first pic of Wilson in costume. You can see the full tweet after the break along with Stephen Colbert’s answer as to who should replace The Falcon.

sherlock return

It looks like Martin Freeman was telling the truth yesterday.

The BBC has indeed confirmed that Sherlock will return for the standard three episode series in 2015 which will be preceded by a standalone special. The exact dates for the return haven’t been revealed, but filming will begin in January and Freeman did say that he believed the special would kick things off around Christmas 2015.

Sherlock co-creator, executive producer and co-writer Steven Moffat ushered in the news with the following statement:

A special, plus a new series of three episodes — it’s a record-breaking run! Of course, it’s far too early to say what’s coming, but we’re reasonably confident that the very next thing to happen to Sherlock and John is the very last thing you’d expect…” It’s always the last thing we expect, isn’t it?

Fellow Sherlock co-creator, executive producer and co-writer Mark Gatiss added:

Series Four! At last! It’s always special to return to Sherlock but this time it’s even more special as we’re doing… a Special! Not only that, we’ll then be shooting three more episodes which will take Sherlock and John Watson into deeper and darker water than ever before. The whole Sherlock team are terrifically excited to return for four new adventures. The Game is on — again!

Sure, 18 months is a long time to wait, but that’s the price of being a Sherlock fan. Fortunately, the wait is always worth it.

Pacific Rim 2 is definitely happening. It even has an official release date—April 17th, 2017. Sure, that’s a ways off but, as you’ll see in Guillermo del Toro’s video message after the break, he’s planning some goodies to tide you over until then. How about a Pacific Rim animated series and a continuation of the comics? Hell yes!

But that’s not all. Del Toro told the following to Buzzfeed:

“The characters I love will return,” del Toro said in a statement to BuzzFeed. “Raleigh, Mako, Newt, Gottlieb and who knows, maybe even Hannibal Chau – but we are taking them into a fresh territory that will display amazing sights and battles. The first film set the stage and now we’re ready to have a blast.”

Plus, Zack Penn is co-writing the script. Needless to say, we’re psyched.

pearls top

I was obsessed with Calvin and Hobbes and The Far Side as a kid. When those strips were shut down in 1995 I completely abandoned newspaper comics. Clearly, I should have been following Pearls Before Swine because I would have been very curious to know why panels in some of his recent comics looked a hell of a lot like something Bill Watterson would draw.

Well guess what.
