Hey look, it’s Norman Reedus aka Daryl Dixon from The Walking Dead hanging out with the Green Ranger. Let’s make that clear, it’s not a guy cosplaying as the Green Ranger, but the actual Green Ranger, Jason David Frank. Whatever amazing photo op you think you have planned for this year’s con season can’t possibly compare to this slice of awesome.

Doctor Who fans have noticed that a robotic character briefly glimpsed in the season 8 trailer bears a striking resemblance to Garrus from Mass Effect. Eurogamer picked up on the similarities too, but they noted that the show’s creators are pretty big fans of Mass Effect. So maybe this whole delicate situation is more of a homage than outright thievery? Honestly, the Doctor Who crew are all rather creative, so I’m inclined to give them the benefit of the doubt.

In case you missed it, you can watch the new Doctor Who trailer after the break…

EW ultron cover

We got our first look at Avengers: Age Of Ultron thanks to Entertainment Weekly and it looks good. These aren’t our bright and shiny, newly minted Avengers. This team looks beat up but determined, which works perfectly within the larger timeline.

This is a teaser for the magazine itself in which EW’s Anthony Breznican sat down with Joss Whedon and Robert Downey for an in depth look at the movie, so you’ll have to buy it to read that, but they did give us a synopsis – which is after the break to protect you from spoilers. But, I say spoil yourself.

bioshock lego 1

BioShock Infinite is packed with memorable structures and places, but the Bank of the Prophet stands out. LEGO builder Imagine Rigney focused on that location from the game and created a massive and beautiful diorama from LEGO. The finished piece was exhibited at Brickworld, and the mini set from Columbia is drool worthy. It even incorporated a rail system.

Check out some of the details after the break (including a video).

Yes, that’s an honest to goodness statue of Godzilla being erected in the middle of a beautiful park in Tokyo. It’s set to be officially unveiled later this week, but these shots give a good look at it right now. The size of the thing is impressive, especially when you see it from above with people there for scale. Check out his tail popping out from the lawn in the back.

halo 3

The idea of watching someone sing in a stairwell may not sound appealing, but it’s surprisingly mesmerizing. YouTuber Quinn Halleck found an empty stairwell and leveraged its acoustics with his voice to create a beautiful rendition of the Halo 3 theme song.

Watch the video after the break and prepare to be impressed…

marvel women

Yesterday, we unveiled a list of some DC Comics women who we believe have potential that should really be explored. Now we’re looking at ladies of the Marvel Comics universe. Obviously, there are already some powerful female superheroes such as Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel and several members of the Avengers and X-teams. But there are still other women, good and evil, who seem to be stuck on the sidelines and really shouldn’t be.

Check out the list after the break…

These incredible 3D images show a less cartoon-like Futurama and it’s nothing short of breathtaking. It’s the work of artist Alexey Zakharov who created a 3D version of the skyline from the opening sequence as well as a 3D version of the Planet Express ship using 3Dsmax, Nuke, Photoshop and After Effects. These are so good, you’ll wish they were sneak peeks of a Futurama movie.

Many 7-year-old girls want to be a princess, but Virginia resident Jeremiah Heaton is actually trying to make it happen for his daughter. He claimed 800 square miles in a region in between Egypt and Sudan called Bir Tawil in order to fulfill a promise to his daughter Emily. According to the British Herald Courier:

“Over the winter, Emily and I were playing, and she has a fixation on princesses. She asked me, in all seriousness, if she’d be a real princess someday,” Heaton said. “And I said she would.”

He did the research to see if it was possible and took a 14-hour journey to Bir Tawil (it’s not claimed by either Egypt or Sudan) and planted a Heaton flag. He believes that gives him the right to claim the area as his kingdom so he can name his daughter a princess, but he’s looking to get it recognized officially.

He’s certainly devoted to his daughter, but don’t think of Emily as just another spoiled kid. The little girl says she wants to be a princess to make sure the locals have food.

“That’s definitely a concern in that part of the world,” her dad said. “We discussed what we could do as a nation to help.”
