I'm on record as being a guy who kind of hates Batman Returns, but if there's one thing I genuinely love about that movie, it's that a significant portion of the plot revolves around an army of actual penguins with rockets strapped to their backs. For that, it looks like I can thank Tim Flattery, a concept designer whose work includes Hunger Games, Daredevil and the
Marvel Comics has its share of "architects," but come next year, fans with gaming consoles will be able to take on shuffling around the "building blocks" of their favorite universe on their own (after a fashion) in the new Lego Marvel Super Heroes video game. Following previously released developer videos demonstrating rough gameplay footage, TT Games has let loose some of the character
Despite all the carnage that the reptile alter ego of Doctor Curtis Connors got up to in last summer's The Amazing Spider-Man movie, things could have been worse: At least a tour bus wasn't trashed in the midst of the Lizard carnage, as was the original plan.
