Film, Comic Books
Henry Cavill, the actor who will be playing Superman in the upcoming “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” film, walked around Times Square today in New York City, and no one recognized him.
What if all the Avengers needed was a little bit of old-fashioned sentiment? Would it end the impending civil war between these heroes? This new fan-made poster for “Captain America: Civil War” captures that old-fashioned essence.
If there remains any doubt what the “S” means on Krypton, it’s “seven herbs and spices,” at least judging by this Batman v Superman promotional tie-in from KFC Philippines.
Locations across the country are offering a limited-edition Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Bucket Meal, featuring a bucket that depicts the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel facing off … presumably over the last thigh. Fans can upsize their medium drink to score a BvS tumbler, which will undoubtedly find its way onto eBay.
Don’t be surprised if you see more than a few adults at the airport dragging this Batmobile travel case behind them — y’know, for their kids. Because everyone wants to be the goddamned Batman, even in economy class.
Produced by Welly, this may be the best Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice merchandising tie-in to date. Seriously, just look at the attention to detail given to something intended to hold socks and underwear. It even boasts tiny machine guns on the front, undoubtedly intended to ward off grabby hands at the baggage carousel.
To help promote its adorable Star Wars Tsum Tsum line, Disney has released an equally cute retelling of A New Hope using only the little stuffed toys and simple animation.
Clocking in at just two minutes, it’s a playful highlight reel that skips over the iconic cantina scene — not only is it (probably) too violent, but there’s no Obi-Wan Kenobi or Greedo Tsum Tsum — but makes the Battle of Yavin a lot of fun. Well, maybe not for those unfortunate Tsum Tsums on the Death Star …
Because you simply can’t have a big-screen super-powered showdown without tasty desserts with lots of sprinkles, Cold Stone Creamery has teamed with Warner Bros. for ice cream and cake creations inspired by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Just when we’d written off flash mobs as passé, Deadpool proves us wrong. Wait, make that Deadpools.
As part of the South Korean marketing campaign for the Deadpool movie, the Taekwondo/urban dance group K-Tigers took to the street dressed as the Merc With a Mouth for a high-octane routine set to DMX’s “X Gon’ Give It to Ya” (needless to say, it’s Not Safe For Work).
SH Figuarts’ “Captain America: Civil War” line has added an Ant-Man figure to its roster — sporting the character’s costume he’ll be wearing in the Captain America threequel.
The Scott Lang/Ant-Man figure comes with a more streamlined helmet than the one we saw in the “Ant-Man” movie last summer, and features more prominent red striping around the side of his legs, along with bracers on the forearms.
To top it off, the figure comes with a miniaturized 15 mm tall version as an accessory.
Deadpool’s legendary love for deep-fried burritos has inspired one Philadelphia restaurant to create a dish fit for a Merc With a Mouth (and a super-sized appetite).
Behold, the “Deadpool Poutine Chimichanga,” which was added to the menu of Cantina Dos Segundos earlier this month. You may want to grab a bib (and a pacemaker) as we describe it: braised short rib, french fries, fried cheese curd, black beans, bacon, and pickled red onion and jalapeno, served with a side of short rib au jus, and topped with sour cream onion, scallion and cilantro.
Everyone’s favorite “Star Wars” characters are getting the LEGO treatment this weekend at the New York Toy Fair. Finn (John Boyega,) Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac,) and Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) will be on display all weekend.

Artist Dan Hipp has created an image that cuts right to the heart of new villain Kylo Ren, and it uses imagery from “Inside Out” to do it. If you thought this summer’s Pixar film was a tearjerker already, just wait until you see the film’s mental-mechanics applied to “The Force Awakens'” tragic villain.
Did you ever wonder what it might be like if “Transformers” director Michael Bay helmed a classic film like “The Wizard of Oz?” Well, wonder no more!
Mashable has re-cut footage from the original 1939 film in the style of Bay’s blockbuster films. Complete with climactic music and lens flares, the mash-up trailer invites viewers to “Click your heels,” “Discover your courage” and “Follow your heart” over footage of the war between Dorothy, her friends and the Wicked Witch of the West. Oh, and there might be an explosion somewhere in there, too.
There has been an awakening, Doctor. Have you felt it?
One skilled YouTuber has mashed “Doctor Who” footage up to the music and style of the “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” trailer. Starring Christopher Eccelston as the Ninth Doctor and Billie Piper as Rose Tyler, the “Star Wars”-flavored fan trailer captures the magic and adventure of “Doctor Who’s” return to the small screen, complete with high-flying space adventures, personal tragedy and an army of Daleks hidden in Dark Space.
The first wave of tie-in products for director Paul Feig’s upcoming “Ghostbusters” film have arrived and they are brick-tacular.
