The Superhero Delusion: How Superhero Movies created the Sad Perfect Badass Messiah, and what that says about America

avengers-v-dark-knight

Imagine a world where everyone is a superhero. Would you like to live there? Do you think it would be better than our own world? Or would it be worse? This is an important question, because judging by the most successful movies made in 2012, our country — and our world — really likes superheroes. We all know that the two highest-grossing films of 2012 were about superheroes – The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises. The third major superhero movie released last summer was, The Amazing Spider-Man, which earned $262 million domestically. It was the sixth-highest-grossing movie of the year in American theaters. We tend to lump these movies together because they are all about costumed codenamed characters who originated in comic books. They are Superhero Movies. READ FULL STORY

'Twilight' is a marathon, not a sprint

When I volunteered to watch a five-movie Twilight Saga marathon, I’ll admit I didn’t fully anticipate the challenges and doubts I’d encounter along the way. As the weeks, then days, then hours ticked down, I realized I’d need to get my head in the game. I trained like any marathoner would, honing skills appropriate to the course — subsisting on a diet of carbohydrates, carbonated drinks, and stale air; sitting on my rear for long periods of time, and abandoning all thoughts of age-appropriate content or cinematic quality. Also like any marathoner, I blacked out for long periods of time between the start and finish lines. But! Here’s what I do remember… READ FULL STORY

Robert Pattinson responds to KStew question: 'Who is actually asking? Is it in your contract?' -- VIDEO

Oh, Robert Pattinson, you gleeful little media troll! It’s always fun when RPattz really lets loose during an on-camera interview — his actual personality seems so different from the brooding, dour hunks he usually plays onscreen. While watching the following clip from The Today Show, you’ll feel a little bad for Savannah Guthrie, who’s just trying to do her job — but you’ll also find it tough not to grin at Pattinson’s cheeky comments. To wit:

On whether it’s awkward to watch a love scene between Kristen Stewart and himself: [Pattinson looks down at his pants, starts brushing them off.] “What have I got all over my legs? I feel like I’ve just fallen in some mud!” He skillfully manages to avoid answering the question altogether.

On the Twilight franchise drawing to a close: “Yeah, it’s the end of my youth. It’s just a slow death from now on.”

Kristen Stewart plays coy about Robert Pattinson relationship -- VIDEO

Are Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson back together or what? If so, we’ve got living confirmation that Prince concerts heal all wounds. If not, Donald Trump — who could really use a pick-me-up right about now — should be pleased.

Naturally, Stewart herself elected to dodge that question when Savannah Guthrie posed it to her on Today this morning. The inevitable query came around three minutes into a three and a half minute interview that had already covered Stewart’s ambivalent feelings about the Twilight franchise ending — “I’m okay walking away, but at the same time, I could keep it for another five [years]” — and her character’s transition from clumsy high schooler to butt-kicking vampire mama.

“Funny you mention that,” Stewart told Guthrie with practiced nonchalance when Pattinson was brought up. “I’m just going to let people watch whatever little movie they would like to think our lives are, and go for– you know. Keep ‘em guessing, I always say.”

Really, KStew? Because I thought “Dude, you slapped a fiiiiish” was what you always said. Clip below:

Robsten lives! Pattinson and Stewart spotted leaving Prince concert together -- PHOTO

Don’t mind that faint squealing noise you’re hearing — it’s simply the sound of a zillion Twihards discovering that Robert Pattinson’s baseball cap and Kristen Stewart’s right hand have been spotted together once more.

The Twilight Saga stars reportedly reunited a few weeks ago, or possibly much earlier; on Oct. 15, grainy photos of RPattz and KStew cozying up to each other at a bar hit the Internet. This picture — taken as the pair left Prince’s show at Hollywood’s Sayers Club Thursday night — is further evidence that Pattinson has elected not to take Donald Trump’s advice.

When asked for comment, EW Twilightologist Denise Warner gasped, then quickly typed “ASDL;FKJASDFAS;LDKFJ.”
