There's a certain magical quality to modern day drugs. The tiniest prescribed pill can cure a multitude of medical problems, whilst the tiniest illegally-purchased pill can create the illusion you have cured a multitude of non-medical problems. So it's no wonder Hollywood loves injecting cool ideas about what sorts of human ailments — both physical and spiritual — fictional drugs might be able to treat.
In "Dredd 3D," the latest redux of comic book hero and one-man-justice-system, Judge Dredd, a narcotic named Slo-Mo has hit the streets, allowing its users to experience reality in slow motion (in the future, drug names are very literal). And this got us jonesing for a list of our favorite movie pharmaceuticals we dare you to "just say no" to. Get More »
Girlfriends. Gal pals. Sidekicks. Whatever you call them, superheroes just wouldn't be able to rise to their full powers without a love interest — and usually a healthy dose of some smoldering on-screen sexuality.
So whether it's the famous upside down kiss between Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man and girlfriend Kirsten Dunst or Gwyneth Paltrow's slinky skirts and witty banter with Iron Man Robert Downey, Jr., the chemistry between a superhero and his civilian paramour is usually an integral part of the story.

With a slew of major gigs and killer bod, Chris Evans should consider a new stage name: Captain Fantastic.
Evans' career has encompassed a slew of haughty and half-naked characters, from his breakout role in "Not Another Teen Movie" to the "Fantastic Four" franchise. With those sculpted biceps and jaw-dropping 6-pack, we can't help but appreciate his, ahem, versatility.
The Boston native's superhero powers got an even bigger boost in (and out of) a form-fitting patriotic suit in the title role of "Captain America: The First Avenger" earlier this year and now he's seeing how Capt. Steve Rogers fares in the 21st century in "The Avengers."
Yeah, it's a lot to take. Good luck keeping cool as you fantasize about the Marvel in our Hot People Looking Hot gallery. God Bless America, indeed.
Before Earth's mightiest heroes assemble on May 4th, the superpowered defenders of the Marvel Universe want to punch one more thing hard … your wallet.
According to Deadline, the May 3rd $40-dollar all-day marathon of all five interconnected Marvel Studios movies leading up to the midnight premiere of "The Avengers" is selling out a month ahead in no less than 10 major AMC locations across the country. Get More »
Marvel Studios has pulled it off again with its fifth superhero to muscle his way onto the big screen in "Captain America: The First Avenger." Director Joe Johnston's fast-paced origin story about the World War II-era superhero was a critical and financial success and heightens the anticipation for seeing Cap team up with Iron Man, Hulk and Thor next year in "The Avengers."
Leading man Chris Evans -- who has always had the sick build of a superhero, and has played one before in two "Fantastic Four" movies as Human Torch -- is introduced in "Captain America" as scrawny Steve Rogers thanks to some digital downsizing. The asthmatic little guy desperately wants to enlist in the army to serve during World War II, but keeps getting declined owing to a laundry list of health problems. He is eventually recruited into a secret super-soldier program and, after taking a muscle-building serum, is transformed into a hunk of red-white-and-blue hurt for the Nazis. Get More »
Superheroes aren't exactly known for their great fashion sense, but thanks to a new MTV Splashpage exclusive, you can now learn exactly how "Captain America" effortlessly pulled off his signature patriotic look in this year's biggest superhero blockbuster.
Oh, sure, anybody could have just thrown a flag over the broad shoulders of Chris Evans and called it a day, but thanks to the design magic of Marvel Studios, this "Captain America" didn't just manage to avoid being corny -- he actually made wearing the red, white and blue look just as timelessly cool as our country's greatest superhero should.
So head over to MTV Splashpage and take a look at the "Captain America" version of "Project Runway." Because being a hero has never looked so good.

Steve Carell ain't got nothin' on Steve Rogers.
That's the takeaway from the latest effort by an astute user at BuzzFeed, who has whipped up a brand new edition of Honest Movie Posters to celebrate this week's number one box office smash, "Captain America." But for an action movie, well, it seems that Cap doesn't seem to get nearly enough action for our tastes. Get More »
Superheroes need loving, too, you know.
It's commonplace to see our big-screen crimefighters also battle for love, but rarely have we seen a hero just as smitten as Steve Rogers in "Captain America: The First Avenger" (the cruelest irony: when all is said and done [SPOILER ALERT], dude may be the oldest virgin we've encountered since Andy Stitzer).
Of course, not every super-love story pans out, so what happens when these guys don't sync perfectly with their first ladies (or guys)?
They go online like the rest of us. Get More »
Hey guys, remember all the chatter heading into Comic-Con about Joss Whedon's announcement that Marvel wouldn't be showing any footage from "The Avengers" over the weekend? And the disappointment over the fact that the first "Avengers" poster didn't have any characters on it?
Well, it turns out that the maestro of geekdom was just playing us all like a fiddle, because all that reverse buzz was apparently a big pysch-out, as the first "Avengers" trailer did actually debut over the weekend -- as did a set of awesome new posters featuring the entire line-up of Marvel's heaviest hitters.
Oh, Joss Whedon. You've done it again. Get More »
