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 »
Quick! What does Superman look like? Not a tough question, considering the caped crusader is an iconic American superhero whose noble good looks both in and out of character (hubba hubba, Clark Kent!) are unforgettable.
Steve Younis, the guy behind Superman Homepage, has cobbled together an extensive, illustrated poster that details the ever-changing evolution of Superman's "looks" since Joe Shuster created him 75 years ago. To be fair, not much has changed: he's all deep, soulful eyes, jet black hair with a hue of blue and a dangling wisp, and a jawline so pronounced, it could cut like a knife.
The one thing to never change, though? That beloved cape that lets Superman fly through the air. Oh yeah, and, also, that whole "It's a bird, its's a plane!" thing. Will they ever learn it's the friggin' Man of Steel?
Amy Adams is currently making the promotional rounds for her fourth, yes fourth, Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress in "The Master," but with Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel" flying into theaters this summer our favorite ginger's got Lois Lane on the brain.
She took her cuteness to "The Tonight Show" last night and paid a little sing-song homage to the woman who owned the role back when Adams was still in preschool — Margot Kidder — by belting out the tune which Kidder was supposed to sing in "Superman" but which was ultimately cut by director Richard Donner in place of voiceover, Maureen McGovern's "Can You Read My Mind?"
Talk about being one with the nerdy details! Get More »
It's been a rough year. Whether you've been laid off or just laid around a bit more than you should have, you're counting quarters this holiday season.
And that's where we come in. We've rounded up 10 awesome gifts that come in under $20. And, no, we're not including any DVDs or Blu-rays in this one. Something tells us you already know your way around Amazon.com (but you can find the must-haves for the year here).

Forget the park. The new "Man of Steel" trailer knocks it out of the solar system.
Scheduled to run before all prints of "The Hobbit" this weekend, this new 2.5 minute look at next summer's Superman reboot has us absolutely giddy at the prospect of a movie that delivers the serious, down-to-earth approach we were denied with 2006's "Superman Returns." Get More »
I've got a box of Clif Bars, a toothbrush and some unread issues of the "New 52." I'm ready for the lines, odors and sunstroke of San Diego Comic-Con.
This will be my sixth visit, so in Con years that makes it... I dunno, my hundreth. All I know is that, every year, I swear it will be my last, then I return. It's like that scene in "Black Hawk Down" when Eric Bana, exhausted from the fight, runs back into enemy territory to continue rescue operations. Only, you know, a little more heroic.
There are dozens of movies (and shows and comics and web series) that'll be pitched at SDCC. Here are the ten I'm most excited about. 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.

For superhero fans, there's only one thing in this world that could possibly be more exciting than "The Avengers": a Justice League movie. Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and the rest of DC Comics' legendary heroes, all in one film? Superhero nirvana.
With "The Avengers" blasting away box office records, that dream may finally become a reality. So we thought now would be the perfect time to reveal our dream cast for "The Justice League." Because someone needs to assemble these heroes, and it might as well be us. Get More »
What makes an icon? Someone so distinctive you can recognize them in silhouette? Colors that contrast in intensely vibrant fashion? Or perhaps what you really need is a damn good symbol.
Whatever combination of design and goodwill that exists in the comic book world, certain heroes have been with us for decades and are simply part of the ether, which makes them prime for the current minimalist trend in pop art.
Anthony Ocasio at ScreenRant took this idea and ran with it when he designed 30 Minimalist Superhero Posters, which include the ol' stand-bys like Batman, Superman, The Flash, etc, along with more recent creations that cut an impressive figure like "The Incredibles," Hit Girl of "Kick-Ass" and "The Simpsons"' irrepressible corporate mascot who "fills your mug with the drug you chug, ohhhhhh yeah"… Duffman!
