That’ll ruffle some feathers, eh? The feathers of Star Wars fans. ‘Cause, you know, the only ones left are waterfowl and nesting birds. But they love Yoda. But seriously, this one is not all about Star Wars or even whether it sucks or not. In fact, that last sentence will be the last time Star Wars will be mentioned in this post.
Neil Degrasse Tyson is officially a resident of another universe
And the DC Universe is happy to have him, as he helped Superman out in this past Wednesday’s Action Comics #14. Astrophysics nerds the world over rejoiced, then were told to shut the hell up by their overbearing mothers who live in the next room over.

Now’s probably a good time to start posting your “Does this look Serious?” mirror pictures. Read the full article here.
World War Z has a full trailer
And it looks… Indecipherable and nothing like the book, so who the hell knows?

Sometimes, videos are confusing and don’t make any sense but totally awesome because it stars a Joker guitar.

And sometimes, videos are exactly what you expect them to be. This is one of those times.
