Popcorn's great and all, but there's just something super-tasty about movie-inspired cakes.
As film bakery is a real thing these days, there are gobs upon gobs of delicious designs all over the place as many talented maestros are generous enough to pretty up the world with photos of their scrumptious gumption.
We like to recognize the creative ways people celebrate their various degrees of infatuation with the cinema, so we went through the painstaking (read: tummy grumble-inducing) process of scouring the interwebs to pluck the very best in show for these Tinseltown-inspired treats ... just in time for "The Big Wedding," opening April 26.
Grab a bib before you dig into these 25 ridiculously well-designed desserts, 'cause it's pretty much a guarantee you'll be drooling all over the place by the end of this list.
25. 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs'
This delectable dish makes us sure the eighth dwarf would be named "Hungry."
No, the Joker wasn't busted for hosting a speakeasy with some bathtub gin. But he sure looks like it. Why so serious?
Canadian CG artist Jason Mark (aka Jempix) created a series of Batman villains based off a collection of 1920s vintage Australian mugshots, as one does. Pictures of the shady mates were featured at the Sydney Justice and Police Museum. Over in the Gotham City archives, we've got "The Usual Suspects": Joker (John Doe), Two-Face (Harvey Dent), Mr. Freeze (Victor Fries), and Penguin (Oswald Cobblepot). Instead of looking like Lindsay Lohan after a wild night of partying, they look pretty dapper and not at all remorseful. Must be the lack of orange jumpsuit. Get More »
The inimitable Patton Oswalt stars as the Penguin in this laugh-out-loud (I mean that in a literal way, not in a "standard adjective for funny" way; I laughed out loud while watching it) video from College Humor that co-stars fellow comedian Pete Holmes as the Caped Crusader.
In the video, the Penguin and Commissioner Gordon good-naturedly but futilely attempt to explain to Batman that his "one rule" — that he will not kill people — has actually been broken several times, before ultimately realizing that Batman has no actual grasp of the concept of death. Batman gruesomely kills multiple criminals mid-conversation without realizing that they are dead and not "asleep," which astounds both Gordon and the Penguin. Then things take a turn for the ultra-violent. Get More »
Now we know why Robin begins most of his exclamations with the word "Holy."
Comic book culture has found its way into almost every facet of our everyday lives in recent years, so it really comes as no surprise that it would finally find its way into religion. Witness above the bizarre and somewhat ominous tweet that came out of the Vatican on Thursday (thanks to E! Online for the pic).
The tweet came from a verified Twitter handle for Pontifical Council for Social Communications that linked to an article detailing the evolution of the Caped Crusader. Officials claim it was an "internal system failure due to a non-native English speaker posting the story on the website," which created an automatic tweet, according to Huffington Post.
"Admittedly some people might have been thrown off by the headline," said Greg Burke, a Vatican communications adviser. Nah, what makes you say that, Greg?
What's most interesting is the Batman article remains on the site. Perhaps we should be reading in-between the lines of Pope Francis' recent tweet that said, "True power is service. The Pope must serve all people, especially the poor, the weak, the vulnerable." Did anyone in Rome notice a bat-shaped symbol lighting up the sky last night?
Anyway, now we also know the Batcave is really in Italy.
Everybody has at least one friend who is obsessed with Batman. They collect the comics, put the pointy ears and cape on for Halloween, or watch "The Dark Knight" like it's their job.
There's probably a part of these incurable obsessives that wishes either A) they could live in Wayne Manor with Alfred or B) that Batman was in every movie, and luckily that second fantasy has been fulfilled with the YouTube vid "Batman in Classic Movie Scenes." Get More »

Holy life imitating art, Batman!
What have you done to celebrate your superhero nerdery lately? Snagged up a few Comic-Con passes? Already penciled out of work for "Iron Man 3" and "Man of Steel"? Whatever the case, we betcha it wasn't even nearly as baller a feat as this guy.
A week ago, a man waltzed into a police station in Bradford, England clad in an over-sized Batman costume and hand delivered up a wanted twenty-seven-year-old burglary suspect to the West Yorkshire Police just because. Seriously. Police released a few surveillance video stills from the night of incident to prove that this actually happened. Get More »
Rumors have been swirling about what Warner Bros. is going to do with their mountain of DC superheroes in the wake of Marvel's dazzling success with "The Avengers," but the studio has backtracked on Will Beall's script and may be unable to reach their 2015 release date for "Justice League."
Or can they? The (frequently correct) rumor mongers over at Latino Review have just posted a video claiming to have inside info that the masterminds behind this summer's "Man of Steel" (Christopher Nolan, Zack Snyder, David Goyer) will be taking the reigns of the entire DC Universe, with Snyder directing Justice League and… *drumroll* Christian Bale returning as Batman!

Everyone loves a good wedding: free booze, awkward speeches and creepy DJs — what more could you want? All too often, however, the invites don't live up to the day. (Seriously, if I open one more shimmering envelope and a sliver of cream-colored tissue paper falls out I'm gonna scream.) So when film buffs throw calligraphy and caution to the wind and opt instead for movie-themed wedding invitations, it's time to celebrate. Get More »
So you think you know Batman, Hulk, Captain America, Spider-Man, Silver Surfer, Thor, Iron Man, Superman, Dr. Manhattan and Wolverine? Think again. Mixed media artist and graphic designer Marko Manev has given the iconic superheroes a makeover, stripping the technicolor from each character for a black-and-white, noir spin in his a series of original art.
