Comedian and pop culture enthusiast Paul Scheer has an awesome podcast called How Did This Get Made? where they talk to filmmakers of awful movies and figure out how the movie got made.

Head to Earwolf to download the episode.

World's Finest, via Superhero Hype, reveals a new Batman animated series will premiere in 2013 called Beware the Batman. Here's some more details:

The next Batman animated series, debuting in 2013, is titled Beware the Batman. According to Register, the CGI animated series will spotlight a classic-looking Batman teaming up with a gun-toting Alfred Pennyworth and a female ninja sidekick. Beware the Batman is executive-produced by Glen Murakami, and will explore the mythology's more obscure villains, such as Professor Pyg, but also won't shy away from featuring some of the more well-known Batman foes. In the series, Batman will team up with a younger female sidekick named Katana. During the keynote, Register added that Katana will fill the sidekick role, but won't be a replacement for Robin.

Rumors have been circling for months about Juno Temple's role in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises and above she avoids the topic while talking with MTV Movies.

Blu-ray.com (via CBM) has posted what could very well be the Blu-ray cover for Cowboys & Aliens. No word on a release date though.

Philip Herman needs to get hired on the David Slade Daredevil movie. Look at this great piece of Cool Vibe art he did of DD vs. Kingpin.

We're still at the point where these Facebook comics are funny. However it's getting dangerously close to being over. For now, though, this comic that shows Batman stalking Robin is still pretty comical. Head over to Dorkly (via Nerd Approved) to read the rest.

IGN has an interesting article that surmises Dexter, the Showtime serial killer show, is pretty much just a superhero show. They make some great points.

Cool Toy Review has a write up on Kotobukiya's new Captain America.

Josh Dallas, who plays Fandrall in Thor, spoke to IGN Movies and confirmed he'll be back for Thor 2 and seems to think Patty Jenkins is a lock to direct. Read more at that link, but here's a quote:

We are! We are planning a return to Asgard, next year. Thor 2 is happening. A great director called Patty Jenkins is directing the sequel. Ken [Branagh] is not directing, which is obviously a huge shame, because he came in and created that world and created the language and the look of the whole thing. But he's kind of set it all up for us and I think he's staying on as a producer. But yeah, there's going to be some more adventures in the Nine Realms.

This would be more exciting if it was real but Papaninja has drawn this buxom Steampunk Wonder Woman via My Confined Space.
