If you’ve been on any pop culture site in the past decade, you’ve no doubt encountered superhero related news. And I’m sure if you scroll down enough in the comments you’d eventually find someone saying “Grow up, these are for kids”. I’m going to try not to be this guy. “Superheroes are for kids” is… Continue reading Comic Books Are For Adults – But Sometimes They Have Trouble Acting That Way
The news broke yesterday that Robert Pattinson is currently rumored to take over as Batman in the upcoming The Batman movie – the one that was supposed to be written, directed, and starring Ben Affleck.
