Scoot McNairy’s ‘Batman vs. Superman’ Mystery Role Revealed

Last summer, Scoot McNairy was quietly added to the cast of Batman vs. Superman with Warner Bros. refusing to comment on the character he’d be playing. The mystery was stoked later that year when McNairy was spotted on the set of the film wearing knee-high greenscreen socks. What did it all mean? A brief look through Google right now turns up speculation that he’s playing The Flash (which we now know is obviously untrue), Metallo, Blue Beetle, Robin, Maxwell Lord and even Doomsday (!!). Well, internet, speculate no longer. We can now tell you who Scoot McNairy is playing in Batman vs. Superman.

Take Dance Lessons From Pikachu Before A Pokemon Outbreak Hits Yokohama This Summer

Pika00

If you're the kind of person who keeps up on a very specific kind of news, then you might remember that last year, the city of Yokohama, Japan was host to one of the greatest events in human history. For nine days, Yokohama played host to over a thousand Pikachus, marching through the streets and, one assumes, tempting Team Rocket into what would have been the biggest heist of their careers.

Sadly, we do not live in a perfect world where this is happening literally all the time, but on August 8, the electric Pokemon will return to Yokohama for another nine-day celebration... and this time, they will be dancing. The event's official name is "Dancing? An Outbreak Of Pikachus," which is equal parts whimsical and terrifying, and thanks to an instructional video, you can learn to dance along!

Alfred Takes a Break From Cleaning the Batcave to Clean Up Gotham’s Streets in Arkham Knight Mod

Rocksteady Studios/Batman Arkham Videos

None of Batman's closest friends and family have been with him nearly as long as dutiful butler Alfred Pennyworth. While the character has seen some action in the comics and animated ventures of the Dark Knight, the video game versions of the loyal servant have largely been portrayed as just that. Thankfully, one devoted Pennyworth fan set forth to buck that trend, and give the over-qualified major-domo a chance to shine.

Though the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight is still rather borked, the time without a properly functioning game has given PC players a chance to fool around with the game's files. After learning how to insert non-playable characters into the fold, Batman Arkham Videos (via Polygon) was able to get Alfred himself in place of Bruce Wayne for much of Arkham Knight's action. "I've tried to edit some files in Batman: Arkham Knight and finally managed to play as Alfred Pennyworth," said the YouTube description. "His moveset is very limited, he cannot perform counter-attacks, environmental takedowns or dual takedowns, but he can still kick plenty of ass."

‘Hellboy In Hell’ #7 Asks You How Much Worse Things Can Get When You’re Already Dead (And The Answer Is ‘A Lot’) [Preview]

Hellboy00

I realize that it's something I should've been reading all along, but it was only a couple of weeks ago that I finally sat down and caught up with Hellboy In Hell, and to the surprise of absolutely nobody, it's great. If you're similarly behind, the book follows Hellboy after his death preventing the battle of Armageddon and his descent into Hell, where he has to struggle with a destiny that would see him sat upon the throne of Lucifer and ruling over the armies of the damned. So, you know, the usual.

It seems like I have pretty good timing, too, because in a few weeks, the book returns as Mike Mignola and Dave Stewart bring us the second arc of Hellboy's posthumous adventures, "The Hounds of Pluto." Check out a preview below!

‘The Walking Dead’s New Big Bad Will Arrive in Season 6 … Or 7, They’re Not Sure

The Walking Dead Season 6 7 Negan Jesus
AMC

The Walking Dead got as much mileage out of its first big bad as humanly possible (even then keeping him around for the occasional hallucination), but many wonder when the infamous “Negan” might swing his trusty bat, now that we’ve established Alexandria. Good news! The Walking Dead may yet introduce Negan (and others) in Season 6 … or maybe 7. Hey, even they don’t know.

Two Years Ago Today: The Debut of Kamala Khan, The Modern Marvel Hero

msmarvel-feat

When you think of the term superhero, what instinctively comes to mind? Is it a straight white man with bulging muscles and a scarlet cape? Or a brooding vigilante with an aggressive streak and a heart of gold? Whatever your thoughts on mainstream superheroes, Kamala Khan, otherwise known as Ms. Marvel, effortlessly dismantles them.

Debuting on this day in 2013 in a cameo in the pages of Captain Marvel, the Pakistani American Muslim teenager quickly became one of the most honest and relatable heroes in the Marvel pantheon.

True Blue, Part 10: And Justice For All Worlds

true 10

Welcome to the tenth installment of True Blue, our weekly recap of Archie Comics‘ crossover event between the Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man series, “Worlds Unite.” Each installment, we’ll recap the notable moments of the latest chapter in “Worlds Unite” with Archie Action Editor Vincent Lovallo, and take a look at what lies ahead for the next chapter of the crossover event.

Previously in “Worlds Unite,” our dutiful heroes ventured forth into mysterious new universes through Genesis Portals opened by Sigma in hopes to both stop his Unity Engines from activating, and to recruit some help in bringing the bigger bad down. Archie had been promoting the cameos of characters from various Capcom and Sega franchises in the lead up to the crossover, and though we'd been teased with the arrival of Street Fighter's World Warriors, this last chapter was the first time we really saw any of the new faces from these classic games.
