Last spring, right after the Hollywood premiere of Marvel's "The Avengers," Joss Whedon decided to slip in one last scene to his mega-team-up, pulling the rug out from under us in the most delightful way.
How he pulled off tacking the stinger to the end of the movie with Bruce Banner, Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, Thor, Natasha Romanoff, and Clint Barton chowing down on a certain beef/lamb hybrid is now subject to a featurette called "And Then Shawarma After" on the extensive (and expensive) new "Avengers Assembled" Blu-ray set.

This week: The long-delayed "Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One — Avengers Assembled" box set with "Marvel's The Avengers," "Thor," "Captain America: The First Avenger," "Iron Man," "Iron Man 2" and "The Incredible Hulk" plus geek-worthy collectibles is finally here.
Sequels are awesome, plain and simple. Returning to familiar characters and worlds we love is like covering yourself with a warm blanket, although when a sequel is bad it can be like a blanket covered in potato bugs and lice.

But what if Bruce Banner stuck around, but stripped himself of that whole getting-angry-and-turning-into-a-giant-green-monster thing, finally putting the self-torture of powerless rage to an end?

The hammer was "forged from a collapsing star" according to comic book legend, which Tyson claims means it clocks in at the equivalent rate of about "300 billion elephants." So that's 4.5 quadrillion pounds, if you're counting with your hands. In which case, stop, and go back to using "billions of elephants" as your measurement unit of choice.
So, yeah, Thor will definitely want to check that baby in baggage claim next time he boards a flight. (And, no, no one is going to steal it. It weighs 300 billion elephants, for the Gods's sake!)
In the latest installment of "Anonymous People On The Internet Doing Fantastic Things With Their Spare Time," our wonderful friends at Buzzfeed stumbled upon a pairing as implausibly smooth as the school princess and the school bad boy: "The Avengers" and "The Breakfast Club."
Indeed, it's exactly what it sounds like: The Avengers trailer is shown with the Breakfast Club's trailer's narration over it, and for the most part, it fits like a glove. A fingerless glove defiantly holding a cigarette. Get More »
Last night, the
internet voting zombies people spoke and declared who and what they favored most from 2012's crop of films at the 2013 People's Choice Awards, and to the surprise of absolutely no one it was "The Hunger Games" which came out on top of the wins list.
"Hunger Games" snagged the win for Favorite Movie as well as Favorite Action Movie, Favorite Movie Franchise and Favorite On-Screen Chemistry. The film also garnered its now two-time Oscar-nominated leading actress Jennifer Lawrence a win for Favorite Movie Actress and Favorite Face of Heroism, which was great because her speech was - per usual - completely adorable.
