• Prince's Batdance Music Video from Batman 1989

    Apr 21, 2016

    Wow. This music video is hard to find. It's almost like someone would like to forget the late 1980s. Imagine that. Regardless, check out this music video from Tim Burton's 1989 Batman film featuring the artist once and once again known as Prince, whose music accompanied the Dark Knight's live-action resurgence and helped catapult him into the pop culture spotlight where he's remained ever since. Besides ... The Joker wears purple ... Prince wears purple ... it was meant to be. Thank you, Prince.

  • Deadpool 2 Phone Booth Teaser from Logan

    Mar 04, 2017

    Here's No Good Deed -- the Deadpool 2 teaser that's playing with Logan in theaters! It's unfair to call this a teaser, because, while it is a total tease that we have to wait for Deadpool 2, this is really more of a short film. I dare say no more for risk of ruining the surprises ... so watch and enjoy!

    Watch Deadpool (again!) while you wait for Deadpool 2

    Apr 15, 2017

    Who would have thought that Negan's crass remarks could be so catchy when accompanied by music? One visionary YouTube artist figured it out, marrying Negan's style with Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You". It almost makes me wish for a musical episode ... or The Walking Dead on broadway.

    Marvel's Cloak and Dagger Trailer

    Apr 21, 2017

    Marvel's Cloak and Dagger TV series is coming to Freeform! The series takes decidedly different approach from what we've come to expect in the Marvel Universe. While Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. broadcasts prime-time action on ABC and Netflix streams a dark and gritty binge, it looks like Freeform is going for a CW-style teen angst with a mix of the former vibes. In other words, it's Marvel's latest attempt to expand into new genres and specialize for new audiences.

    The series premieres in 2018.

    In the meantime, who are the topical & timely teen heroes? Get the 101 here:
