See Karlie Kloss and Your Other Favorite Models Styled As Badass Superheroes

Karlie Kloss for 'GARAGE Magazine'

Garage magazine has a dope new cover, and it’s Karlie Kloss as Black Widow. Just in time for New York fashion week, the spring/summer issue features a variety of supermodels in some super rad Marvel superhero garb. The clothes are street wear interpretations of each hero, and they’re pretty interesting, and empowering! Adriana Lima morphs into She-Hulk, Candice Swanepoel is Spider-Gwen, Cuba Tornado is Thor, and Lexi Boling is Captain Marvel. I love this, not only because women need to be featured in more of their own superhero movies, but because it’s creative and different. To me this is 10,000 times better than heroin chic. More »

Chris Pine Has No Problem Letting Gal Gadot Take The Lead In ‘Wonder Woman’

Chris Pine

And this shouldn’t come as a surprise. Women have had to do it for years, playing the love interests to the likes of Spiderman and Iron Man. It’s time to let a lady run this shit, and Chris Pine has the right attitude. ”I think in the world today we’ve had plenty enough of male-driven everything,” he told Total Film. “It’s finally time to see how wonderful the world can be with beautiful, strong intelligent women kicking some major ass.” Chris will be playing Wonder Woman’s main love interest in the upcoming film, starring Gal Gadot

This is a change for Chris. In the past he’s played Captain Kirk in Star Trek, and Jack Ryan in Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. It sounds like he’ll have fun switching it up though. More »

Watch: Lex Luthor Creeps Us Out In The New ‘Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice’ Trailer

Lex Luthor

If you’re not obsessed with superhero movies, fear not. I’m not sure you have to be to enjoy Zack Snynder‘s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, or at least the trailer. The new one dropped yesterday and it’s loaded with quippy dialogue between Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) and Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck). While Clark criticizes Batman for living “above the law,” Bruce gives Superman shit for being an alien. It’s kind of hilarious actually.

But who is putting these two heroes against each other? Seems like it’s Lex Luther, who’s played by Jesse Eisenberg. While I found that choice a little surprising, the man is CREEPY. This role is far from the geeky stoner kids of days past (remember him in Adventureland?). During the trailer Lex yells, “If man won’t kill God, the devil will do it!” Yikes! More »

YAS! The First ‘Wonder Woman’ Photo Is Here!

Gal Gadot

Hell to the motherf*ckin yes! We’ve been waiting, oh, I don’t know only our entire lives for the Wonder Woman movie, and finally we have the first semblance of proof that it’s really. Really really real! Gal Gadot who stars as our favorite lady superhero, also known for her role in the two most recent Fast & Furious films. She recently posted this photo to her Instagram, and it was also finally released by Warner Bros. 

In the photo she dons Amazon princess garb, including the headpiece and gold cuffs we all know and love. More »

Jessica Jones Is The Punk Rock Anti-Hero We’ve Always Wanted, Watch The New Trailer And See For Yourself

Jessica Jones
Watch Video

Yay Krysten Ritter! After Don’t Trust The B In Apartment 23 kind of bombed (it was cancelled after two seasons) I was hoping she wouldn’t go away, because she’s an awesome actress and unique personality. Welp, Marvel has found her a home in the new Jessica Jones series on Netflix, where Ritter plays the former superhero turned private investigator who drinks like a fish and can kick serious ass. The first trailer is creepy as hell, but the latest one gives us even more Jessica (originated from Marvel’s Alias comic), who is short tempered, snarky and likes to wear leather jackets. As if that’s not enough to get you to want to watch, she gets into tons of fights (to save lives, of course) and gets to have sex with hottie Luke Cage (Mike Colter). Woohoo! Netflix is going to break on November 20th, that is for damn sure.

Beyonce Dressed Up As ‘Storm’ For Ciara’s Birthday Party, Cause She’s The Queen

Ciara's Birthday Party

Ugh Beyonce just gets cooler everyday, she’s even nerdy cool! Last night was Ciara‘s 30th birthday party, and of course, it was a costume party because Halloween is around the corner. It looks like there was a bit of a superhero theme going, because Ciara went as Catwoman, her boyfriend Russell Wilson as Batman, and various other celebs like Kelly Rowland and Lily Collins went dressed up too. But how fierce did Beyonce look as Storm from X-Men? That white hair, those contacts, that cape ready to defy gravity–she really had it down. More »

Marvel Comics Has Spilled Some Very Important News Regarding Two Of Our Favorite Avengers

Captain America and Thor

Are you a fan of comics? Then get excited about January 2016, because as Marvel Comics revealed in a Tweet yesterday we’ll be getting “Earth’s Mightiest Kiss” between Thor and Captain America. Although it’s not quite the Thor and Captain America you know thanks to the Marvel Movies Universe. If you’ve kept up with the comics (or just casually read about it online), then you know the current Marvel Comics Universe doesn’t feature Steve Rogers as Captain America and the actual god of thunder as Thor. Nope, Sam Wilson, aka Falcon, is the new Captain America and the new Thor is none other than Jane Foster, Natalie Portman‘s character in the movies. But still! They’re kissing!  More »

First Look: You Need Amandla Stenberg’s Comic Book In Your World

A sneak peek at "Niobe: She is Life"

Shouts-out to our intern Iris B. for tagging me on this photo because, yassss! Now, I know I’m hella late to the party, and all the cool comic-reading kids are going to want to kick me out, but in the next few months it looks like I’ll be purchasing my very first comic books. As a kid, I was never interested and also really wasn’t exposed to the world of comics, but you can’t really work with someone like Trent for three years and not begin to develop some interest. Now that two of my favorite people are about to release their own comics—Ta-Nehisi Coates is taking on Black Panther, and Amandla Stenberg has created Niobi—my body and mind are ready for a deep dive. Click inside for more about Stenberg‘s latest project!

It’s Official! Chris Pine Will Play Steve Trevor In ‘Wonder Woman’

WW's main man

In March of this year, we first heard that Chris Pine was being considered as the new Green Lantern in the forthcoming reboot of the superhero movie franchise … but in May, we learned that he was also being considered for the role of Steve Trevor, the love interest in the forthcoming Wonder Woman stand-alone film. Today we learn from The Wrap that Chris has officially signed on to play Wonder Woman / Diana Prince‘s love interest in her forthcoming series of movies. Personally, considering the other big roles that Pine is already committed to (chief among them as Captain James T. Kirk in the new Star Trek films), I think the smaller role of Steve Trevor in the WW movies is the perfect part for him. This is really great news, I think. More »

Daredevil Will Battle The Punisher In ‘Marvel’s Daredevil’ Season 2

"The season is being described as Daredevil Vs. The Punisher!"

Earlier this month, we learned that actor Jon Bernthal has been cast as The Punisher / Frank Castle in the forthcoming second season of Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix. It is commonly known that both Daredevil and The Punisher are both heroes that fight the forces of evil in NYC (tho, in very different ways). But, that’s not to suggest that the two heroes are necessarily friends. Today we hear that The Punisher will be featured heavily in season two of Marvel’s Daredevil but NOT as a villain per se … which means that the TV show story will very likely follow the adversarial story between these two that has been told and retold in the Marvel comic books. The season is being described as “Daredevil vs. The Punisher“, which has a really nice ring to me. More »
