Remember when all those internet douchebags were saying it would be nice if Captain Marvel was smiling in the marketing leading up to the movie? Well, the movie already had a hell of a response for those jerks, but a new Captain Marvel deleted scene shows that they almost hit the point home even further with Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) using her powers to bring down that biker who asked her to smile while he was hitting on her in the most douchebag way possible. Watch it below. Read More »
This weekend sees the release of Brightburn (and it’s pretty good!), the story of a couple (Elizabeth Banks and David Denman) who raises a baby boy after he mysteriously crash lands from the sky in their backyard. As the child grows up, he starts exhibiting incredible strength and other unbelievable abilities. However, this isn’t a Superman origin story that creates a hero to save the world. This is a twisted take on the superhero mythos where the kid heads down a dark path and chooses to use his powers for evil.
Brightburn is directed by David Yarovesky, but it’s produced by Guardians of the Galaxy helmer James Gunn, and written by his brother and cousin Mark Gunn and Brian Gunn. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that there are a couple of Easter eggs that seem to connect the movie to one of James Gunn’s other superhero movies.
But in order to discuss it, we have to dive into some spoilers for the movie, so you’ve been warned. Read More »

Last year, one of the best San Diego Comic-Con exclusives was NECA’s special four-pack of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles figures inspired by the original movie from 1990. Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo all came in special packaging that looks like a giant VHS case, and the detail on the figures made them look exactly like the movie figures we all wanted as kids. Now that collection is getting some company with a whole new set of figures.
NECA has revealed another San Diego Comic-Con four-pack of action figures from the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. This time, you’ll be able to get Splinter, Shredder, a couple Foot Soldiers, and a whole bunch of weaponry for the ultimate battle between heroes in a half-shell and their arch nemesis.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The original Aladdin was made all the way back in 1992. So it only makes sense that the music video for a new original song in the live-action remake of Disney’s animated classic is a throwback to that decade too.
Disney has just released the full version of “Speechless,” a new song that Naomi Scott sings in the movie as Princess Jasmine. It’s a powerful ballad that gives Jasmine a new dimension as she sings that she won’t be silenced or shut down. The oppression of women is something that wasn’t overtly touched upon in the original movie, so we’re interested to see how they handle that with this movie. Listen to the new Aladdin song in the music video below. Read More »
