The Attack on Titan theme music is pretty intense and you wouldn’t think it’d work with any other show, but you’d be wrong. This video has the music playing over some other familiar favorites and, for the most part, it works surprisingly well. The Walking Dead, Gravity Falls and even Orange is the New Black get a little dose of the Survey Corps, and while it doesn’t really fit in every case, the results are kinda hilarious.

Artists who participate in Comic Book Resources’ “The Line it is Drawn” column answer some of life’s greatest questions. The challenge for a 2012 column was “What if ___ and ____ had a baby?” DeviantArt user Marco D’Alfonso decided to imagine Harley Quinn and Deadpool’s offspring, and despite the chaos that would ensue, I have to admit their little family is pretty adorable. I bet no one volunteers to babysit though.

These slightly terrifying versions of the Disney princesses are the work of DeviantArtist Jeffrey Thomas. He’s taken all the elegance of the characters and tossed it aside in favor of brute force, blood, and a little bit of crazy. He’s even written a story for each image to explain its origin. It’s all part of his Twisted Princess series. These princesses are definitely capable of saving themselves without the help of a prince. In fact, the prince might need saving from them.

What you’re looking at is a sneak-peak of Paul Rudd as Ant-Man’s Scott Lang. He looks a little worse for wear and he’s not a superhero yet, but this picture is enough to get me stoked for the upcoming film. The image was picked up by USA Today, and as you can tell by the background, the film is being shot in San Francisco.

rebels

If you don’t have Disney Channel, then you’re going to want to get it fast so you can watch Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion when it airs on the channel worldwide on October 3rd. This one-hour movie is the prelude to the new Star Wars Rebels series which will be airing on Disney XD beginning on Monday, October 13th. From StarWars.com:

Set between the events of Star Wars: Episodes III and IV, the story unfolds during a dark time when the evil Galactic Empire is tightening its grip of power on the galaxy. Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet and are ruining the lives of its people. The motley but clever crew of the starship Ghost — cowboy Jedi Kanan, ace pilot Hera, street-smart teenager Ezra, the “muscle” Zeb, warrior firebrand Sabine, and cantankerous old astromech droid Chopper — is among a select few who are brave enough to stand against the Empire. Together, they will face threatening new villains, encounter colorful adversaries, embark on thrilling adventures, and become heroes with the power to ignite a rebellion.

The series was created by Dave Filoni who was also behind Star Wars: The Clone Wars, along with Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Sherlock Holmes), and Carrie Beck. The voice cast includes Freddie Prinze Jr. as Kanan, Vanessa Marshall as Hera, Steve Blum as Zeb, Tiya Sircar as Sabine, Taylor Gray as Ezra, David Oyelowo as Agent Kallus, and Jason Isaacs as the Inquisitor.

2nd Doctor and Monsters

We’re fast approaching the premiere of the new season of Doctor Who. A new era begins on August 23 with Peter Capaldi taking up the role of the heroic Time Lord now that Matt Smith, the Eleventh Doctor, has left. People are eagerly discussing what can be expected in the life of the Twelfth Doctor and what villains may return. But there are possibilities beyond the obvious choices such as Daleks. There as several baddies from the classic Doctor Who series that have yet to appear in the modern era and would be great to see.

Look past the break for a list of just some of the classic era villain we’d love to see return.

lego

Earlier this summer, Lego announced that the female scientist Lego set would be seeing production and hitting store shelves this month. Now, some industrious individual with a sense of humor has set up a twitter account for the ladies. You can follow @LegoAcademics to keep up with their antics, which detail the day-to-day challenges of science (like sharing your microscope with a dinosaur. You know, the usual). There’s even a voluntary tip jar if you’d like to say thanks with a little donation.

See the tweets after the break.

This incredible artwork by Dutch street artist Leon Keer makes it look like you’re standing next to two life-size Lego minifigs. In reality, they’re just chalk drawings on the sidewalk at Legoland amusement park. All you have to do is stand on the little footprints between the figures and the illusion is complete when viewed from the front.

See a side view that breaks the illusion after the break.

doctor who season 8

There’s no doubt we’re excited for the The Series 8 premiere of Doctor Who. The trailer for the first episode “Deep Breath” was enough to make me wish I had a TARDIS to go forward to this Saturday, August 23rd.

I’m pretty sure the BBC is enjoying tormenting us because the BBC blog has just released the all of the episode titles and writers.

Time for all sorts of speculation based on titles and gleefully rubbing of hands together in anticipation. It’s almost here!

You can check out the list after the break.
