 Marvel considering TV series set in Avengers universe
After the phenomenal success of Avengers Assemble, it’s all systems go over at Marvel. Not content with crafting its ambitious set of post-Avengers ‘Phase Two’ movies, the studio is now looking into making a TV series set in the Avengers universe…

Key words: “Fairly loose connection.”

We put these skeletons together to make it look like they’re dancing.

In the “ideas we wish we’d thought of” department: This blog is devoted to taking New Yorker cartoons, stripping out the captions, and replacing them with dialogue that describes, in the most literal fashion possible, what is happening. This is our favorite thing since Garfield Minus Garfield

Comedian Bill Maher: Now a major pro-Obama Super PAC donor

  • $1 million donated to the poorly-named Priorities USA Action source

» But wait … isn’t that a conflict of interest? Granted, Maher, who leans on the liberal side but has called himself libertarian in the past, doesn’t exactly hide his political views, but considering he’s a commentator who regularly questions both sides of the aisle, you wonder if that crosses an ethical line. Then again, will his audience care? On the other hand, as the Christian Science Monitor points out, Maher tends to do better, comedy-wise, when there’s a Republican in office, so this might hurt him a little. By the way, Maher’s announcement, which came during a Yahoo webcast, was a bit of a shock to those in the audience, though Maher had fun with the announcement, mocking the name of the Super PAC he’s donating to.

Take a peek at Tim Burton’s discarded ‘Superman’ from the ’90s. For $30 million, not a single frame was shot, possibly because of this bizarre costume made for star Nicolas Cage (or because the star was Nicolas Cage). 

Not sure what The Daily is talking about. Wearing this outfit now. It fits like a glove. It’s the best blogging getup we’ve ever found.

Spider-Man joins The Fantastic Four, but with two downsides

  • cool Following the death of the Human Torch, Marvel is shaking things up with The Fantastic Four. First and foremost, they’re adding a new member to the team: Spider-Man. Intriguing!
  • stupid They’re also giving the troupe lame new costumes and an awful new name, “The Future Foundation,” that sounds more like a political action committee than a team of crime-fighters. source
