The folks over at Honest Trailers ran their own Batman v Superman contest and the winner (barely) was the Man of Steel. As a reward, Screen Junkies had to agree to make on Honest Trailer for 2006’s failed Superman reboot, Superman Returns. Yeah. Watch it after the break.
I’d like to start off by suggesting, maybe going so far as to assert, that I do exist. It is true I prefer not to pose for photographs, but I have a couple. And, furthermore, Watson doesn’t buy gifts. This is an Established Fact.
And while I would have preferred to have discussed my own rankings for various movies of the Batman or Superman variety, I think I will instead take exception to something Ryan said about how boring a Silver Age Superman movie would be. I happen to disagree, because such a movie (or two) already exists, and they’re not boring.
The latest episode of Gabbing Geek is so fresh you’ll want to slap it! Check it out now over at iTunes or wherever you get your podcasting goodness, or check out the web version to listen right now! More details after the break.
It’s Oscar season, and we are looking for a Gabbing Geek way to cover Hollywood’s biggest night, so today we take a look at the best and worst performances by an Oscar Winning performer while playing a character in a comic book superhero film. Some of them were future winners when they donned the tights, others already had the Oscars on the shelf.
We are leaving out movies like Teen Age Mutant Ninja Turtles and other non-superhero comic films, so you gotta be a superhero property to be eligible here! So who is the best and who is the worst (and a bonus for comic completionists, the full list of every Oscar winning performer to play in the genre!)? Let’s read on, shall we?
With Superhero movies becoming more and more popular and prevalent these days, it’s time to discuss the gender balance (or lack there of) we tend to see in such movies. We are familiar with the popularity of Batman, Superman, Spider-man, Ironman, Aquaman(? – if only to Watson), etc. But where do the female superheros fit in this male dominated franchise? With kick-ass characters like Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Blackwidow, and more…how have we failed to properly tip the scales so that movie goers are seeing equal representation on screen?
