You guys, it is only Tuesday.

And Tuesday is almost worse than Monday because you're no longer rested up from the weekend — unless you were one of those select few peeps who got Columbus Day off — and yet there's still so much week left.

So, we here at the net's most entertaining film site would like to offer you a condolence laugh or two by way of a squirrel photoshopped into your favorite superheroes and other iconic film characters. Of course. Get More »

Why Must Every Action Movie Have Multiple Endings?

Man of Steel Warner Bros.


By not simply rolling to "The End," "They all lived happily ever after," etc. after Frodo made a three-pointer chucking The One Ring into Mount Doom, Peter Jackson set a pretty bad precedent in "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King." Every time it seemed like all was well and we were fading to credits, another five-minute scene would roll in. Toss in a few Oscars and you've got a bunch of blockbuster directors wanting to add 20 endings to their genre films, too. Get More »

9 Movie Drugs We Wish We Could Try

Karl Urban in "Dredd" Lionsgate

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 »

Ranking the Women Behind Superheroes

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.

GALLERY: Oh Captain, Our Captain America, Chris Evans

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.

USA! USA! 'Captain America' Hits DVD & Blu-ray

Captain America DVD

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 »

'Captain America' Clip Shows Red, White & Blue Is the New Black

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.

Captain America

Steve Carell ain't got nothin' on Steve Rogers.
