'Batman/Superman' is one of the most anticipated films fro 2015. And before there is even a trailer or a production still there is sooooo much hate for it. It seems people do not like having Ben Affleck or 'Batfleck' being apart of the project as one of the leads. They've even gone so far as to release petitions telling the president to "Stop the chaos!!!" Why are they so upset? Well, I can see why hardcore fans are soooo upset, but to make a petition? I don't even understand why they would do that. To honestly think that 'Bafleck' was wayyyy more important than the things going on in Syria, or even around the world...it's confusing. And just because Ben Affleck(Batfleck) is being cast as 'The Big B' does not at all mean the film is going to crap. For pete's sake we have not even seen a »
Boston and New York are cities that have been known to feud for years, but Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, both of whom have their shows based out of New York, put those petty differences aside to send their love and support for those affected by the attack at the Boston Marathon.
Since both late night talk show hosts were off on Monday, they spoke about the accident during their Tuesday episodes. Below is the transcript from Stewart's opening.
"Once again, having to start under horrific events here in this country. I really hate the fact that I can cross-reference my thoughts to so many other events that have occurred over the years of a similar ilk, so I'm not going to. I'm just going to say this to Boston: Thank you. Thank you for once again, in the face of gross inhumanity, inspiring and solidifying my belief in humanity »
Stephen Colbert delivered a meaningful, but humorous monologue about Monday's Boston Marathon bombings at the start of the Tuesday night edition of Colbert Report.
"Whoever did this obviously did not know sh-- about the people of Boston," he began. "'Cause nothing these terrorists do is gonna shake them. For Pete's sake, Boston was founded by the pilgrims, a people so tough they had to buckle their goddamn hats on!"

Stephen Colbert opened his first "Colbert Report" after the tragedy at the Boston Marathon with a heartfelt and funny tribute to the people of Boston, praising them for their resilience throughout the history of the city.
"Whoever did this obviously did not know about the people of Boston. Nothing these terrorists do is going to shake them," Colbert said. "For Pete's sake, Boston was founded by the Pilgrims, a people so tough, they had to buckle their goddamn hats on."
He also pointed to the Red Sox, the Big Dig and Aerosmith as Boston stalwarts that refuse to give up.
"Here's what these cowards really don't get," Colbert continued. "They attacked the Boston Marathon, an event celebrating people who run 26 miles on their day off until their nipples are raw -- for fun."
While we still don't know who is responsible for the explosions, Colbert echoed an optimistic sentiment that Patton Oswalt expressed. »

Like most people of a sane and well-adjusted disposition, I find the prospect of a couple of hours stuck in a car with Barbra Streisand to be terrifying, even if her company is adulterated by the presence of likably shouty leading man Seth Rogen. That's an hour-and-a-half for me, the viewer, eight days of narrative time for Rogen and la Bar as nervous son and interfering mother, and three months of real time on set for both of them. Sounds like I got off lightly.
Streisand has been taking it easy the last decade or so. Since 2004 she has only appeared in two Fockers sequels (in which she was perfectly cast), and in the 1990s she only made two movies, both of which she directed and both of »
