Brace yourselves, marshmallows. Looks like all that hard-earned Kickstarter money is going to good use.
Warner Bros. just made DC Comics best bromance official at Comic-Con.
SAN DIEGO — Aiming to claim the big moment at Comic-Con International 2013, Warner Bros. officially announced that the Man of Steel sequel will be Superman & Batman.
A fan-made mock-up of a Batman & Superman poster
As the panel was wrapping up, Man of Steel director Zack Snyder took the stage to confirm the Superman sequel. Despite rumors to the contrary, there was no mention of a Flash or Justice League movie. Snyder also failed to address the question of who would be stepping into Bruce Wayne's shoes since Christian Bale supposedly has hung up his cape.
Snyder was then joined by Man of Steel actor Harry Lennix (General Swanwick) to read a statement in character:
I want you to remember, Clark. In all the years to come. In all your most private moments…I want you to remember my hand at your throat. I want you to remember the one man who beat you.
That was immediately followed by a reveal of the Batman/Superman combined logo.
For the Horde! There’s only one way Legendary Pictures can successfully blend cartoon fantasy and realistic battles.
During the Legendary panel at Comic-Con, it was announced Warcraft had been greenlit.
Moon director Duncan Jones has been tapped to direct and filming begins in 2014. Translation: live action. Uh-oh?
The tipping point is quickly approaching. Three Justice Leagues is two too many, and a showdown is only a matter of time.
In Justice League #22 a member of the original Justice League will defect to the "Dark" side. But who will it be? Zatanna? Wonder Woman? Someone else?
Meanwhile, Constantine knows more than he is telling and someone is holding a dark secret that could change the tide of the Justice League War. As the battle between Justice League, the Justice League of America, and the Justice League Dark heats up in preparation for Villains Month in September, the house of cards begins to fall down.
Despite its death knell January release date. After all, who doesn’t love Julianne Moore as an shape-shifting witch dragon?
It’s this summer’s can’t miss event! When photographer Joshua Watson proposed to his film industry girlfriend Rachel, they knew better than to settle for a standard announcement.
This will end well. A team of Swiss researchers have created the next generation of borderline science-fiction robot spies.
Each Distributed Flight Array (DFA) consists of any number of quad-rotor drones. The autonomous robots are self-aware enough to find each other and form a swarm before taking to the air since no DFA can fly alone. With absolutely no central authority.
As they sync up into more and more complex shapes, each individual drone decides how best to help the team stay aloft. For example, in a T-shape, half the robots instinctively start their engines going clockwise -- and the other half counter-clockwise -- to lessen the torque.
In practice this mean the DFA can band together and then land in various locations to dislodge a single member of their swarm. Once on the ground, each drone has three omni-directional wheels to keep it going no matter the terrain.

Here we see the DFA Swarm aligning into a flight pattern.
Surely they are flying off on a mission of mercy.
Finding a new Earth is hard. These contenders were so close, but sadly humans cannot live on molten lava or plasma water…yet.
HD 189733b aka "The Trickster"
Distance from Earth: 63 light-years.
Deal breaker: Despite being the first exoplanet astronomer's have determined the true color of -- using the Telescope Imaging Spectrograph to measure changes in the color of light from the planet before, during and after a pass behind its star this is no Earth-2 -- this is a no go. The blue color comes not from the reflection of water, but an atmosphere of silicate particles. Combined with temps of 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit, it possibly rains glass -- sideways -- through 4,500-mph winds.

Fomalhaut b aka "The Ninja"
Distance from Earth: 25 light-years.
Deal breaker: Considered a rogue planet, it has an elliptical orbit that takes about 2,000 years to complete. No big deal, except it is continuously traveling through a huge cloud of debris surrounding its star, making it difficult for astronomers to see, but more importantly meaning huge chunks of ice rock pelt the surface in a never-ending barrage.

UCF-1.01 aka "The Hot Potato"
Distance from Earth: 33 light-years
Deal breaker: At just two-thirds the size of Earth, it is one of the smallest exoplanets ever discovered. However, it's hanging out so close to its star that, should it be made of the same composition as our home planet, the ground is literally hot lava. Hot molten lava that burns.
HD 209458b aka "The Steam Room"
Distance from Earth: 150 light-years
Deal breaker With its impressive tail, this dying planet appears more like a comet. In reality, it is the first of a purposed new class of dead planets -- called chthonian planets -- where the atmosphere is evaporating at such a rate to be seen from space. In this case hydrogen and oxygen are being ripped from their planet at almost 22,000 mph in temperatures exceeding 1800 degrees Fahrenheit. Awesome to look at, not to live on.

Clever. Very clever.
Fox recently debuted posters for the X-Men: First Class sequel.
Each one is a clever mash-up a of the actors playing both young and old.
But for some reason there wasn't one for Wolverine...so an unknown fan fixed that oversight.
Wanderlust in style. The photos of Tod Seelie are enough to make anyone sell their things and hit the open water.
Every now and then a group of artists band to together to weld eclectic rafts in a project known as the Swimming Cities of Serenissima.

With a post-apocalyptic steampunk feel, the adventurers live and work their way down the river.

Some expeditions even aimed to teach locals skills like silk-screening or costume creation.

It’s the most magical place on Earth! Of course there are a few caveats, a couple quid pro quo.
Your fingerprints validate your existence.
The new system scans your park pass and then assigns your fingerprint to it. This is not for show. Use the same finger each day or you're not getting in.

Continue the "hidden" theme with a book light switch.
Now that you've got a lair, it needs illumination. These step-by-step instructions turn any book into a light switch. Bonus! It doesn't even hurt the book.
The level of detail is staggering. Costume embroider Michele Carragher takes her job very seriously.
Goodness is highly overrated.
You know the importance of a dramatic entrance.
And an impeccably timed exit.
At work, you are a totally chill and fair boss.
But you have a super low tolerance for morons.
More like a majestic mountain of “NOPE.”
Picturesque Mount Hua is located in the Shaanxi province of China.
Considered one of China's Five Great Mountains, it holds centuries of religious significance.
Every year, hundreds of newlyweds flock to the destination.
Together they ascend the mountain to hang a lock from a red strip of cloth in a symbolic gesture of dedication to the marriage.
With paths like the "Stairway To The Clouds," the spot is also popular among hikers and tourists.
Company motto: We understand the importance of vows. Subtle, threatening, succinct.
The ultimate inner struggle. Sometimes the best part of a film isn’t actually part of the film but you won’t know until it’s too late.
Stage One: Satisfaction
What an enjoyable film! Let us linger for the anticipated post-credit teaser.
Stage Two: Superiority
Look at these dumb peasants, leaving their seats before the credits end.
Stage Three: Irritation
Nothing before in the cut before to the long scroll? Now we have to wait longer!?
Stage Four: Temptation
OMG I have to pee so bad my bladder is going to explode. Maybe we should go.
Please let the movie be as impressive as its anti-mutant propaganda.
First, there's an amazing video from the near-future.
Founded in 1967, this Trask Industries seemingly innocuous ad is set in the year 2017.
And we get a much better look at Peter Dinklage as Bolivar Trask.
Founder of Trask Industries.
