  1. Is that Amber Heard as female Thor?

    • Yes, it is.

    • Is that Sandra Bullock as Iron Girl

      • Is that Rooney Mara as Loki ?

        • Is that Lou Ferrigno as She-Hulk?

          • Is that my Mum sitting on the Death Star?

            • Is that my phone?

              Too bad Iron Woman can’t go underwater or into the stratosphere, since she couldn’t resist providing a sensuous peak at her bosom. She-Thor is really workin those big, shiny ariolas, but maybe she should try some leg armor?

          • Lololol

  2. Is it just me or is Kiernan Shipka looking more and more like Emma Watson as she gets older? She’s great on Mad Men, by the way.

  3. This has nothing do with the article but it’s the most recent article so yeah. My question is has the green lantern review podcast been put up yet? I remember them saying they would put it up for everybody

    • On Twitter, Ben Kendrick said he’ll be sharing the link on this Monday’s podcast episode. Two more days! :)

  4. thats one ugly shehulk…

    • Horrible lol. Best by far is the Cap girl. Thor Girl is the 2nd best.

      • I’ll take Amber Heardz Thor Girl over any of the otherz…

        • That’z what Johnny Depp zaid too.

          I take it your Z key iz broken? I didn’t mean to type Z, I meant the letter next to the A key.

  5. Whoa, Lady Avengers. No wheeaaay!

  6. That Mackenzie girl is so cute :)

  7. Is cap girl the girl from lie to me

    • It’s Alison Brie, I don’t think she was in Lie to Me.

      • She was in Community but that’s as far as I know.

        • Love her in Community, she was also in the recent movie, Kings of Summer or something like that. She’s also a character in Mad Men I believe.

  8. little anakin is so annoying. poor tarkin.

  9. Closer feels like another awful NBC pilot for preteens. It seems technically impressive, but crams every moment with cliches and cheese and predictable repackaging of very old ideas. The reaction to the weapon strike is especially baffling and nonsensical to the extreme. Whatever talent is on display, I hope it gets absorbed into a much better creation than this; maybe something with a new idea or two, a surprise, or a character that rings true. I need a pallet cleanser.

  10. “Prank”? Really? This Friday the 13 prank looks suspiciously like an ill-advised crime spree. But more than being illegal, it looks recklessly stupid. Hes lucky nobody shot him. I for one would have thrown that car out of reverse and plowed into the guy with my bumper out of moral obligation and a willingness to seize the upper hand against a psychopath. Learning it was a prank might later bum me out. Maybe.

    Funnier was the guy who wandered ghettos pretending to be a zombie. He actually WAS shot at, (and later offered crack by the friendly natives.)

  11. Alison Brie for the win!
    Also, I would pay good money to see The DENNIS System in a theater…especially to see Charlie as a cop!

  12. They forgot a bit of chain under Miley’s legs and between the Death Star.
