Lego’s master builders are known for constructing some of the most gorgeous, complex statues of iconic characters you’ll ever see using nothing but thousands and thousands of little plastic bricks. This life-sized Lego Flash based on DC’s upcoming Justice League caught our eye, because something about it was... well,…
Jeopardy! hasn’t been a stranger to covering Star Trek before, but Tuesday’s episode might take the prize for hiding, in plain sight, one of the coolest The Next Generation references we’ve ever seen on the show.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I think we have definitive proof that Spider-Man: Homecoming would be even better if one of the zillion new things Peter Parker’s teched-up Spidey suit could do was summon a giant transforming mecha.
Spider-Man is one of the world’s most beloved superheroes. So beloved, in fact, that far more people than just Peter Parker or even Peter’s clones have taken on the Spider-Mantle. In celebration of Spider-Man: Homecoming’s release, here are the many Spider-Men of the multiverse, judged and ranked for your pleasure.
The United Kingdom has woken up after going to the polls to a shocking upset for Prime Minister Theresa May, and a hung Parliament—an outcome where no party managed to achieve a singular majority. But if American audiences tuned in, they have been less perplexed by the electoral system than Lord Buckethead.
Look, I’m as surprised as you are that the Ninja Turtles apparently have a cookbook coming out filled with suitably wacky pizzas. Don’t they order takeout to the sewers more than anything? But hey, if you ever want to recreate the TMNT in your own kitchen, do we have the goofy book for you—no grimy sewer pizza…
’Tis the season for graduation. That means commencement addresses. There are the ones by politicians which stir up controversy, the ones by comedians that go viral by being funny, and then there are the vast majority—boring speeches that the mostly drunk grads will never remember. Bill Pullman found another route.
I mean, sure, that forest conversation between Vision and Ultron’s last drone was pretty good. But, like most things, it could’ve been improved if it featured more giant sentient trees flinging things into the air so they could be blown the heck up.
Princess Leia’s Stolen Death Star Plans (say it out loud in the same rhythm as you would Sgt. Peppers Lonely Heart’s Club Band) is the project of Palette-Swap Ninja, who has gamely rendered a parody of every Sgt. Pepper’s song as the story of A New Hope. Here’s the crazy part: They’re all really good!
When he’s not ruthlessly killing off our favorite A Song of Ice and Fire characters off left right and center, George R. R. Martin spends his time being one of the most adorable fanboys around.
Yesterday, we got a number of conflicting stories about the title of the fourth Avengers movie. We heard it was a spoiler, we heard what might be the title and it wasn’t a spoiler, but the thing we at io9 heard most was that our commenters are more creative than anyone at in the naming department at Marvel Studios
Every issue of Unbeatable Squirrel Girl opens with a credits page that is also a look into Doreen Green’s social media life, as she chats with friends and fellow superheroes about her adventures. But those social media accounts don’t just exist in the pages of comics, but on actual Twitter too, and guys, they’re…
Entertainment Weekly has reunited the cast of Buffy the Vampire Slayer for its next issue, and the choice to put everyone in black basically makes it look like a high school reunion at an exclusively goth school. Jeez, the principal looks so uncomfortable on that grave they’ve dug for him.
Over the last year, we’ve been drowning in rumor after rumor about just who will play time-traveling mutant Cable in Deadpool 2. We’ve had so many at this point, with no end in sight, we decided to do the only thing we could: scientifically rank all of the rumored candidates, in order of likeliness, desire, and…
Well, this is both charming and baffling: As a tribute to David Bowie, the U.K.’s Royal Mail launched 52 sets of their commemorative David Bowie stamps into the sky.
The age-old art of swapping one character’s model in for another for video game hijinks is always fun. But I really like to imagine that this is actually some secret Bruce Wayne training regimen where he prepares for the possibility of fighting literally anyone in the DC Universe by pretending that he can become them.
Alfred Pennyworth is a man of many talents regardless of the incarnation of Batman he’s in. But it turns out, on top of all of the usual butlery and whatnot, his Lego self is also a slick as hell guitarist, to boot.
Darryl and Thor are back, and I can’t lie—I’m currently more excited to see the rest of this short right now than I am Thor: Ragnarok itself.
But, it turns out, you really did want it. In Beauty and Lord Voldemort, Pistolshrimps seamlessly edits Harry Potter footage into the live-action Beauty and the Beast trailer. You will never look at Voldemort’s smile the same way.
Signing up to do a Cribs-style show when you’re secretly a bat-themed vigilante seems like a profoundly unwise decision. Doing it as both your alter-ego and your real identity just seems downright silly, Bruce.
