Gwyneth Paltrow's Lifelike Pepper Potts Figure Is Silently Judging You

As Hot Toys slowly works its way through the Iron Man universe, it was inevitable that after producing action figures for almost every last armored suit Tony Stark has built, it would eventually get around to turning characters like Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts into sixth-scale collectibles. » 7/22/15 7:45pm 7/22/15 7:45pm

Science fiction shows get canceled all the time. But a ton of great science fiction has been created since 2005. Here are 15 shows that changed… » 6/29/15 1:37pm 6/29/15 1:37pm

Spider-Man Is The One Hero Who Can Tie All The Marvel Movies Together

We finally have our new, Marvel-Cinematic-Universe-approved Spider-Man. But aside from the obvious benefits of having Marvel’s most popular (and most lucrative) hero join their cinematic fold, there’s a far more crucial aspect of Spider-Man that the MCU needs right now: his ability to tie this ever-expanding universe… » 6/24/15 12:19pm 6/24/15 12:19pm

The Avengers reimagined as dark fantasy characters is scary great

Artist Daniel Kamarudin made these excellent illustrations that reimagines The Avengers characters as you know it. He took what we saw in the Marvel movies and turned them darker and added more of a fantasy flair to them.
