    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Say what you will about the JJ Star Trek reboot, the casting was spot on. All the main crew were recast perfectly.

    So, has anybody succumbed to seeing ID4(2)? Facebook friends have not been kind.

    The reviews have been devastating towards it. Movie sounds like a mess. I may rent down the line.

    Same here. We even watched the old one in preparation to see the new one, but the reviews made us reconsider.

    So true. It was fun to watch it with the kids and laugh at the dumb dialogue and characters. It's good entertainment, though.

    Finally got around to seeing batman vs sup. No idea if it's extended cut or not as I pirated it. Ben was a great Batman and I loved Wonder Woman even if I agree she's not the best actress in the world. Ending was a total CGI mess. Wasn't a great film by any means... Not even sure if it's "good" but I wouldn't call it dog shit either. Too cynical a take on the universe for my taste as I like a little Hope mixed in with my comic heroes. Looking forward to future films with less Snyder.

    Still all the actors cast are good. As is the art direction. The foundation of DCU is solid. Just needs a better head to guide it. Nothing so far can't be fixed moving forward. In Johns I trust.

    The Flash scenes were garbage. Hell any scene involving teasing new characters sucked.

    Doomsday was an absolute joke. Horrible CGI. I enjoyed WW kicking his ugly CGI ass but seriously they couldn't do better?

    Other then calling her "Thor," I didn't really have a problem with her introduction. She's got a great character design too.

    Now this black teen female Iron-Man? Even I have to admit that it's really starting to feel like Marvel is trying too hard. Heavens forbid they give readers the classic versions of these characters to read about instead of constantly rebooting things and mixing up the status quo.

    So is she still going to be called Iron Man? I mean, I get that calling her Iron Girl is demeaning or whatever, but it's kinda weird.

    I can hear Lena Dunham's head exploding from here.

    She should be called War Machine.

    I'm not sure this is really comparable. Kick-Ass was told in three mini-series and was never meant to be an ongoing character throughout the years like Iron-Man and Thor. If they want to bring it back, then doing it in an anthology like style seems a good way to go. They can then mix up the main character and settings as they go. As the article says, think Doctor Who.

    Agreed. I also thought the way they did that one X-Men title wasn't too bad -- established characters, just with an all-female team.
