On a quiet suburban street, a babysitter must defend a twelve-year-old boy from intruders, only to discover it’s far from a normal home invasion.

I’m going to do something that every reviewer advises against, and that is tell you not to read this review. I am reviewing this movie because it is great and want to tell everyone about it, but to even talk about the movie would be to give something away. I will try to avoid writing about more than the first 5 minutes of the movie, but if you’d rather experience Better Watch Out to it’s wicked fullest, just go see it right now. Don’t watch the trailer for it spoils the big surprise at the end of act 1. Just know this movie

Latest Avengers: Infinity War Theory Is All About Tony Stark

Only the great Stan Lee has made more McU appearances than Robert Downey Jr., whose Tony Stark will be going up against Marvel’s Mad Titan in 2018.

We are, of course, referring to Avengers: Infinity War, the super-sized sequel coming by way of Joe and Anthony Russo. Having earned their stripes on The Winter Soldier and last year’s similarly epic Civil War, the Russo Brothers have been tasked with orchestrating what is undoubtedly the biggest Marvel movie in the history of Marvel movies so, you know, no pressure.

Championed as the studio’s “deadliest showdown” yet, speculation is rife that a number of characters (Black Widow? Loki?) will bite the bullet in either Infinity War or its as-yet-untitled sequel, but a new and somewhat dubious fan theory composed by Screen Greek suggests that viewers needn’t worry about the wise-cracking Tony Stark.

They allege that Iron Man’s arc

Vanity Fair Takes You Behind The Scenes Of Avengers: Infinity War With These Candid Pics

For a film that largely revolves around the impending apocalypse – you can thank Thanos and his malevolent Black Order for that one – Avengers: Infinity War sure looked like a ton of fun to make.

Take Vanity Fair’s recent cover shoot as an example. Initially unveiled on Monday, just prior to the big trailer blowout, Vf rounded up 35 of Infinity War‘s cast – not to mention McU architect Kevin Feige and the great Stan Lee – for a truly historic photo shoot. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is fast approaching its 10th birthday, after all.

And today, the outlet has invited us behind the scenes with a smattering of candid new photos. Embedded below, you’ll see Feige and Robert Downey Jr. sharing a laugh in front of the camera, while Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Homecoming) and Evangeline Lilly (Ant-Man and the Wasp) are both suspended overhead. Fitting, really, given they’ll be

Extended Synopsis For Avengers: Infinity War Tees Up Marvel’s “Deadliest Showdown”

Avengers: Infinity War is many things to many people, but to the folks over at Marvel Studios, this is an “unprecedented cinematic journey 10 years in the making.” Or so says the sequel’s official synopsis.

Released alongside this morning’s awesome teaser trailer, Infinity War‘s logline begins by ramping up the stakes, as Iron Man and the gang gear up for the “ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time.”

They’ve fought amongst each other (see: Civil War) and even managed to save the world (twice!), but come 2018, the Avengers will cross paths with Thanos, a power-mongering being of immense power. With the Infinity Gauntlet in one hand and a loathing for costumed crusaders in the other, Josh Brolin’s Mad Titan descends upon Earth in search of the six Infinity Stones. What follows is a race against time as Earth’s Mightiest Heroes go up against Thanos and so-called

Loki Rolls Back The Years In Latest Set Photos From Avengers 4

If Avengers 4 is to feature a flashback to the Battle of New York, then Marvel isn’t exactly doing a good job of hiding it.

In the past two days alone, Just Jared and a handful of other people have captured photos from the sequel’s bustling Atlanta set, which revealed Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Hemsworth rolling back the years – the former was spotted wearing a very familiar Black Sabbath T-shirt, while Marvel’s God of Thunder suddenly regained those luscious locks.

And even if you’ve only caught a glimpse of Thor: Ragnarok‘s promotional campaign, you’ll know that Taika Waititi’s threequel – in North American theaters from today! – includes a scene in which the mighty Norse god gets a haircut. And from Stan Lee, no less.

By that logic alone, perceptive fans have already concluded that Avengers 4 will whisk us back to 2012, when Earth’s Mightiest

Will Avengers 4 Include A Flashback To The First Avengers Movie?

From the moment Taika Waititi signed on to helm Thor: Ragnarok, the New Zealand filmmaker made a point of taking Marvel’s God of Thunder in a totally new direction.

Gone was the drab storytelling and forgettable human characters, while Thor’s luscious locks also received the chop – courtesy of a very heartfelt cameo by Stan Lee, no less. But we’re now learning that Chris Hemsworth’s Norse god may be sporting his long hair once again by the time Avengers 4 rolls around in 2019.

Filming on the Joe and Anthony Russo blockbuster continues in Atlanta, where the pic is rubbing shoulders with Ant-Man and the Wasp and Sony’s Venom spinoff, and YouTube channel Noticias Geek TV (via Screen Rant) recently snuck a peek of what appears to be a long-haired Thor coming face-to-face with Captain America (or Tony Stark, perhaps?).

Mad magazine spoofs Stranger Things with their latest issue

In my adolescent to teen years, I was an avid reader of both the Mad and Cracked magazines.

Avengers: Infinity War Is “Absolutely Mind-Blowing”

With Thor: Ragnarok quickly approaching, and looking to be one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s strongest efforts to date, might we add, it’s almost about time to start getting excited for the studio’s 2018 slate. And while projects like Ant-Man and the Wasp and Black Panther are certainly worth paying attention to, it’s undoubtedly Avengers: Infinity War that’s going to be hogging the lion’s share of the spotlight come next year.

Joe and Anthony Russo’s landmark event movie is currently on course for a release on May 4th, 2018, and it’ll herald the advent of the Mad Titan and his squadron of galactic accomplices. Yes, after much foreshadowing, we know Thanos to be the primary antagonist of the Russo Brothers’ ensemble piece, who wages an Infinity War to bring ‘balance’ back to the universe.

On board for the role of the mega villain is none other than Josh Brolin,

Mike Gold: Mad and the Madman

Donald Trump has been trying very hard to do a lot to this nation, thus far with pathetically little success. However, while he might not be making America great, he’s most certainly been making American comedy fantastic.

Take Stephen Colbert. After he took over The Late Show, he has been losing badly to The Tonight Show’s Jimmy Fallon. Then the Manchild from Hell won the election – thanks to a little help from his friends – and that very evening Colbert had something of a nervous breakdown, live on CBS. To his vast credit, he put all that energy into his job: making jokes at the expense of our Megalomaniac-In-Chief. Now, six months later, he’s leaped over Fallon in the ratings.

Certainly, there’s no shortage of material. Indeed, many other comics have made similar journeys on the Trump Turnpike (“what will that asshole think of next?”). Seth Myers,

Review: DC Super Hero Girls: Intergalactic Games

  • Comicmix
What a great time to be a grandparent (or so I’m told). There are now plenty of books, games, clothing, and video to encourage girls to be strong and independent. DC Comics offers up their Super Hero Girls line and this week they have released their second animated feature, DC Super Hero Girls: Intergalactic Games, a 77-minute romp.

Writer Shea Fontana improves on the first offering with a story set at the Intergalactic Games where Earth’s powered women take on the vile challengers from Korugar Academy. To prepare for the competition Academy teacher Doc Magnus (Phil Lamarr) is building battlebots and supervising Batgirl (Mae Whitman) and Bumblebee (Teala Dunn) as they build their own. Principal Waller (Yvette Nicole Brown) is not amused nor is she happy that Magnus’ bots seem to have free will but were not programmed with any morality, a theme that plays out across the 77-minute fast-paced story.

We Are Groot (But Also Howard The Duck)

As we look back at what came before ‘Iron Man,’ we marvel at the miracle that is the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Earlier this week, the Fsr team brainstormed the plot of Avengers 4 based on the idea that its mysterious subtitle was a potential spoiler for the still unseen Avengers: Infinity War. It was a fun exercise that briefly allowed me to nerd out over a few spandex epics penned by personal favorites, Brian Michael Bendis and Jonathan Hickman. The resulting conversation spawned some excitement, and a good heap of cynicism as well…or better yet, apathy. How much further can the Marvel Cinematic Universe expand? Will Thanos ever sit up from his chair, and prove he’s the big bad Mad Titan comic book fanboys claim him to be? Next week, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will mark the 15th entry in Marvel’s unprecedented shared universe machine, and by the time we get to Avengers

Video Game Review – Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series – Episode 1 “Tangled Up in Blue”

Shaun Munro reviews Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series – Episode 1 “Tangled Up in Blue

Continuing to prove the prevailing inconsistency of Telltale Games’ episodic adventures to date, their stab at Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is a fairly pedestrian exercise in fan wish fulfillment that does just enough to make it worthwhile for the hardcore set, though more discerning crowds will probably be left wanting.

Much like 2014’s acclaimed movie, “Tangled Up in Blue” is an outing low on anything approaching an original or especially intriguing plot, and is instead propelled forward by its rambunctious personality and colourful characters. The crux of the first episode’s narrative sees the gang chasing down the purple Mad Titan himself, Thanos, which will be of welcome relief to fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in particular, who may have grown frustrated with the incessant foreplay leading up to next year’s Avengers: Infinity War showdown.

Launch Trailer For Telltale’s Guardians Of The Galaxy Series Ships Star-Lord And The Gang Off On An All-New Adventure

On the eve of release, developer Telltale Games has lifted the lid on the official launch trailer for its five-part Guardians of the Galaxy series, promising a whole new adventure for Star-Lord and the gang.

Soon after answering a distress call from the Nova Corps, Peter Quill and his loyal band of anti-heroes go up against Thanos, the Mad Titan of the Marvel universe, in exchange for a clean slate. It’s slightly similar to James Gunn’s 2014 sleeper hit in that Star-Lord and the other Guardians begrudgingly accept a mission in an attempt to clear their names, but Telltale has made it clear that its imminent episodic series features an original story, and it’s one that’ll begin with the release of “Tangled Up in Blue” tomorrow, April 18th.

Priced at $4.99, the episode will be available for Xbox One, PS4, PC, Mac – look for the Season Pass to

Guardians Of The Galaxy: The Telltale Series Unveils Action-Packed First Teaser

It’s the Guardians vs. Thanos in the rip-roaring first teaser for Guardians Of The Galaxy: The Telltale Series.

Slated to premiere in April with the launch of “Tangled Up in Blue,” Telltale’s latest creative venture pits Star-Lord and the gang against the Mad Titan, who has waged war on the Nova Corps. In their darkest hour, the people of the Nova Corps turn to the Guardians of the Galaxy as their last remaining hope, and though today’s first-look promo is light on story, the final shot sees the universe’s unlikeliest heroes preparing to lock horns with Thanos – a battle that won’t happen on the big screen until at least Avengers: Infinity War.

As previously reported, Guardians Of The Galaxy: The Telltale Series is considered a separate beast with its own unique story, and therefore won’t be beholden to the continuity of the McU.
