Marvel Comics / Marvel Studios
Marvel Comics / Marvel Studios

The 1989 Avengers West Coast Annual featured an unusual short story by Mark Waid and then-newcomer Amanda Conner called "Rate The Hunks," in which Wasp and She-Hulk offered their expert assessment on the sex appeal of their male Avengers colleagues. Almost thirty years later, we've assembled our own experts to repeat the exercise, with an updated twist.

‘The LEGO Batman Movie’ Director Needed an ‘Army of Lawyers’ for that Bonkers Third Act

The LEGO Batman Movie preview
Warner Bros.

There’s one thought that many of us probably have while watching pop culture mashup extravaganzas The LEGO Movie and The LEGO Batman Movie: How much did they have to SPEND on all of this? Not only is it packed with classic Batman references, The LEGO Batman Movie features an even more impressive array of properties than the first in its insane latter half, which involved a lot of secrecy and a lot of lawyers. [Be warned: this post contains major SPOILERS for The LEGO Batman Movie.]

Fox

Rumors about the next chapter in the X-Men franchise have intensified in recent weeks, with reports suggesting that the sequel — allegedly titled Supernova — will take another crack at the Dark Phoenix saga, focusing on Sophie Turner’s young Jean Grey. Although Fox has yet to confirm the rumors, Turner herself claims that a new X-Men sequel is indeed filming this year, which means it may be coming a little sooner than you think.

Director Josh Boone Hints Maisie Williams Has Joined ‘New Mutants’

Game of Thrones Season 6 Rickon Maisie Williams
HBO

Rumors have swirled around the gestating production of New Mutants like so many Terrigen Mists since it was first announced around a year ago. We‘ve pinned down The Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone as the hand on the steering wheel, he’s confirmed that The Witch starlet Anya Taylor-Joy will take one of the leading roles as Magik, and she’s confirmed that James McAvoy will reprise his role of the young Professor Charles Xavier. But even as the production’s projected spring start date rapidly approaches, little else is known for sure about this lower-profile superhero picture.

Scarlett Johansson Won’t Be Controlled in Latest ‘Ghost in the Shell’ Trailer

Ghost in the Shell
Paramount Pictures

The government is not to be trusted, not at present and certainly not in the trippy future Japan of Ghost in the Shell. Major Motoko Kusanagi (Scarlett Johansson) has been led to believe that she endured some manner of terrible accident in life, and the police department salvaged her body by augmenting it with cybernetic implants. In exchange for a second chance at consciousness, all she has to do is devote herself to fearlessly cleaning the street of crime and to surrender what’s left of her free will; naturally, she has some doubts about this. And when she meets an enigmatic stranger warning her that all is not what it seems, her whole understanding of who the bad guys are starts to shift.

Good Thing: Mahershala Ali’s Incredible Year

Netflix / Marvel
Netflix / Marvel

Mahershala Ali has been in just about every great thing over the past twelve months.

Netflix fans probably first noticed his work in House of Cards on Netflix, in which he played lobbyist and presidential chief-of-staff Remy Danton opposite Kevin Spacey's unctuous Francis Underwood. That's a scary enough proposition for even a veteran actor, but Ali gave a stellar performance, and followed it up by being easily the best thing about another Netflix series, Luke Cage. Ali has established himself as an intriguing and formidable force, and a name to keep an eye on throughout 2017. And I'm loving every moment of it.

All the Easter Eggs We Found in ‘The LEGO Batman Movie’

Lego Batman
Warner Bros.

The LEGO Batman Movie, now playing in theaters (and Palace Cinema LEGO sets) everywhere, works perfectly well for any audience, regardless of their familiarity with Batman, LEGO or otherwise. For viewers who do know the nearly 80-year history of its title character, however, the film is a treasure trove of references. Following his debut in the pages of 1939’s Detective Comics #27, Batman quickly became one of the most famous heroes in all of comics, and eventually spawned television shows, movies, toys, video games, and countless pieces of merchandise, almost all of which get referenced in Chris McKay’s LEGO Batman Movie in some way, shape, or form.

Scarlett Johansson Sorta Gets That ‘Ghost in the Shell’ Whitewashing Thing, But Not Really

Paramount Pictures
Paramount Pictures

Two movies steeped in the very same kind of controversy are about to hit theaters: The Great Wall, whose casting of Matt Damon in the lead role of a movie ostensibly about a fantastical spin on Chinese history is laughable at best, and Ghost in the Shell, which cast Scarlett Johanssen in a role that is, for all intents and purposes, a Japanese woman. Well, robot-woman. Both sets of actors from both films have tried their best to find ways around this whitewashing issue, with many involved in The Great Wall calling it a “cross-cultural” story of “an outsider.” Johanssen recently addressed accusations of whitewashing leveled at her own movie, and unfortunately she doesn’t really get it.

We Could Have Seen Coolio Play Scarecrow in Joel Schumacher’s Cancelled Third ‘Batman’ Movie

Warner Bros.
Warner Bros.

Among many, many other things, Joel Schumacher’s Batman and Robin featured a very special cameo: Coolio was the overseer of that random street race Batgirl was involved in, and he revealed recently that he agreed to cameo because he wanted a part in the next Batman film. Namely, he wanted to play Scarecrow. Unfortunately, Batman and Robin was, well, quite bad, and the fifth installment in that Batman series never got made.
