This one looks way better. You can work all the airbrushed UnderArmour you want, but nothing beats a good pair of comic book pantyhose.
DC Extended Universe director, Zach Snyder, (he did Man of Steel, Superman v. Batman: Dawn Of Failure, and the upcoming Justice League) posted this pic of our current Superman, Henry Cavill, in the classic Superman’s old outfit. That’s the one the dearly departed Christopher Reeve wore when HE was (the one true) Superman.
Zach revealed (via iO9) that Henry wore that costume during his first screen test. He should wear this one in the movies going forward. Not only as a tribute to Christopher, but because it might bring back Ursa from Superman II. Sarah Douglas played my favorite super-villainess of all time in that movie. She was so wonderfully evil in that movie that she kicks astronauts into deep space and fries snakes, and made it a point to beat misogynist hillbillies at arm-wrestling. Her finest moment, though, is when she picked up a manhole cover to fling at Superman but first called out “SSsssuupppeeerrmmmaaaaaaaaaaaannn!” (at the :50 mark). It’s the most exquisite line-reading in cinematic history. Zach Snyder should resurrect Ursa for one of those dour-ass movies. She’d bring the campy evil.

Joss Whedon declared over a year ago that he broke up with Marvel because making the second Avengers movie nearly put him in a grave. It looks like he’s finally found a rebound piece in DC. Joss will be the mastermind behind a standalone Batgirl movie.
Too many handjob jokes, too little time.
Star of gay rumors Jeremy Renner has done two Mission: Impossible movies with Tom Cruise, and now it’s fellow star of gay rumors Henry Canvill’s turn to hear Tommy snap at him, “Bitch, you better slouch and bend those knees, because these heels can’t grow on their own.” Production on Mission: Impossible 6 was reportedly on hold, because Tommy wanted more points in his back-end (don’t we all, Tommy?) or something. Well, it looks like Tommy’s back-end is going to get those points he wanted, because production is back on and director Christopher McQuarrie is adding to the cast.

A Hillary Clinton-hatin’ documentary and Batman v. Superman: Would Have Been Better Off As A Legal Drama swept the Golden Raspberry Awards (aka “The Razzies“) this year.
Tomorrow we find out if all the hard work and hand jobs Ryan Reynolds has been giving have paid off when the Oscar nominations are announced. But today we find out whose lazy hand job of a performance was rewarded with a 2017 Razzie nomination
There was a nominations sweep at this year’s Razzies. Zoolander 2 got 9 nominations, followed closely behind by Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice with 8. Sorry, 1997’s Batman and Robin, it looks like you’re still the Batman movie with the most Razzie nominations. But don’t worry, there’s a chance that Batman movie written and directed by Ben Affleck could happen.
Jared Leto’s award dreams came true in the most Twilight Zone-y of ways. He’s not going to get the Oscar nomination he was no doubt sure he was going to get, but he did get a Worst Supporting Actor Razzie for Suicide Squad. And Julia Roberts’ performance as Lady Wearing a Bad Wig in Mother’s Day earned her a Worst Actress nomination. That wig didn’t get a Worst Supporting Actor nomination, because of course it didn’t; that wig worked its ass off and supported her like a load-bearing beam.
And Ben Affleck received his 10th Razzie nomination today. The big one-zero! He should go out and celebrate tonight for reaching a career milestone. Maybe his BFF Tom Brady will treat Ben to a steamed green bean and unseasoned fish dinner at his house.
The list of nominees is after the cut.
Yay? That’s about the only reaction I can muster. In an interview with Newsweek, Henry Cavill’s new manager revealed that he’s going to star in another standalone Superman flick. Yep, I’m kind of back to the weak “yay?” Wait, can Henry show off an ass like this one in his supersuit? That might inspire some more enthusiasm from me and the rest of the gals. Either that or fire Hank and get the owner of that donk to take over as both movie AND tv Supes. Cuz’ damn. That donk pic is now used for avatars on some of the dirtier Tumblrs. Not that I know about dirty Tumblrs. *hides face in hands*
