Six months ago, the world was introduced to the illustrious honey badger — sorry, I mean, “The Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger,” an indefatigable creature who really does not give a s—. You know who else don’t give a s—? The denizens of Comic-Con, a famously audacious crowd who think nothing of parading in public in all manner of crevice-hugging, skin-revealing costumes. So we here at EW.com had a brainstorm: What if we released Randall, the man who so famously narrated the viral “Honey Badger” video, into the wilds of the San Diego convention center during the height of Comic-Con craziness? Along with colleagues John Carlucci, Chris Gordon, and Dave Schlow, Randall delivered the following exclusive video report from San Diego Comic-Con International, or, as he initially puts it, “the San Diego Zoo’s annual Come Along Intentionally Tour!” Check it out below: READ FULL STORY

Superman and Lois Lane haven’t been together forever. When the two characters were introduced in Action Comics #1 over 70 years ago, hard-edged Lois practically refused to give Superman’s nerdy alter ego Clark Kent the time of day. Lois was more interested in Superman: She spent most of her own comic book — Superman’s Girl Friend, Lois Lane — trying to get Supes to marry her by hook or by crook, but the superhero always turned her down. They danced this two-person three-way tango for decades — Clark loved Lois, Lois loved Superman, Superman wanted Lois to love Clark, etc. Then came the ’90s, the Era of Big Changes for Superheroes. In 1990, the couple got engaged; in 1996, they got married; and so they have remained ever since.
Until now. As part of DC Comics’ companywide reboot, Superman will commence living an exciting life of super-bachelorhood in September, while Lois will be seeing a co-worker, thus perpetuating the unlikely stereotype that journalists have active dating lives. READ FULL STORY
'Captain Planet' to be made into a live-action movie: 'The power is yours' (to remember '90s cartoon catchphrases)!
Earth! Wind! Fire! Heart! No, PopWatchers, I am not just shouting the names of bands from the ’70s (sorry, Water, you didn’t fit in the theme of my joke). Rather, I am calling for all the forces that combined to make the super awesome ’90s animated superhero, the one and only Captain Planet, to team up once again.
That’s because Cartoon Network has signed a deal with producers Susan Montford and Don Murphy (Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Real Steel) and their company Angry Filmworks, to make a live-action movie out of the beloved animated series Captain Planet and the Planeteers, which ran from 1990 to 1996. Said Stuart Snyder, the president and COO of Turner Broadcasting System Inc.’s Animation, Young Adults, and Kids Media division in a statement, “We are extremely excited about bringing the good Captain back to life. His adventures are known worldwide and he is recognized across generations. We expect to make a spectacular series of films with the amazing team at Cartoon Network.”
Yes, fellow ’90s nostalgia geeks, the series that taught us the importance of saving the Earth (and that if you live a green, albeit crime-fighting, lifestyle, your hair will also be green) is going to be made into a film. READ FULL STORY
The first teaser for next year’s The Dark Knight Rises is airing in front of a little movie called Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows–Part 2. For those of you who missed the Hallows midnight screening because you’re too tired/too busy/too no-longer-a-college-student, here’s the lowdown on the Rises preview. It kicks off with a montage of scenes from Batman Begins, with Bruce Wayne walking over the frozen tundra while Liam Neeson narrates his speech about becoming “A legend, Mr. Wayne.” “Every Hero Has a Journey,” say the intertitles. “Every Journey Has an End.”
Cut to: A shockingly intimate shot of Gary Oldman’s Commissioner Gordan, lying on a hospital bed, breathing through what appears to be an oxygen mask, speaking in a tremulous voice. READ FULL STORY
