This Might Actually Be the Most Weirdly Boring Star Trek "Action" Figure Ever Made

Star Trek has never been the most, ugh, toyetic of franchises. Cool ships, weird aliens, big teams of characters to collect, sure, but it’s a franchise about exploration and science more than it really is about action. That’s not stopped Star Trek toy lines though, leading to some very weird merch... like this …

The World Cup Is Delaying Ant-Man & The Wasp's UK Release and I, a Stereotypical Nerd, Am Pissed

Next week, Ant-Man and The Wasp descends on theaters. Apparently it’s pretty good! I’d be excited, but alas, I live in the UK—and for a godawful reason, Disney has decided to delay its release here until August 3. That reason is, unfortunately, a bunch of sports people punting balls around in Russia. And it sucks.

A Critical Analysis of Kinect Star Wars' "I'm Han Solo" Song, the Definitive Text on the Character

Solo: A Star Wars Story has hit theaters, in Lucasfilm’s latest attempt at exploring the man behind the mythos, Han Solo.

A Tribute to Hawkeye, a Character Who Is Definitely in Avengers: Infinity War at Some Point

Avengers: Infinity War features practically every iconic hero from Marvel Studios’ decade of groundbreaking superhero blockbusters coming together in one film. It also has Hawkeye!

The Other Superhero Prequel TV Shows With Cities as Titles That DC Could Make

For the past few years, Gotham has given us a... let’s say unrestrained look at what the titular city was like before Bruce Wayne donned his cowl as the Dark Knight. Next year, there’s Metropolis, a pre-Superman saga revolving around Lois Lane and Lex Luthor. (And let’s not forget Smallville.) But what other…

What the US Superhero Entertainment Industry Can Learn From Japan: Capes Are Rad

When you think of a superhero—not a specific character, just the idea of a superhero—chances are he or she is wearing a cape. Capes are one of, if not the, most iconic pieces of superhero iconography around. That is, unless you look at the glut of live-action superheroes we have on TV and film right now, where there…

Everyone Forgets the New Guy in the CW's Adorably Goofy Superhero Show Skit

Instead of showing everyone punching the crap out of stuff, this year’s now-traditional joint advertisement for the return of the CW’s DC shows is a bit more relaxed, with the emphasis on the gang coming together to put on their costumes and kick ass. But they kinda end up ignoring their latest superfriend in the…

Watch Barry and Iris' Honeymoon Get Interrupted in This Adorable Flash Deleted Scene

By the time The Flash’s midseason finale rolled around, Barry and Iris were already back from their honeymoon after finally tying the knot (and punching some Nazis) in Crisis on Earth-X. What we didn’t get to see though, was that it was cut short in a pretty hilarious fashion, thanks to Ralph Dibny... and Netflix?
