We were so happy to see Macaulay Culkin looking healthy earlier this year, and it seems like his heroin and oxycodone addictions remain a thing of the past!

Macaulay made a rare public appearance at NYC this Friday! No, not at the Plaza Hotel, but at New York Comic-Con to promote Adult Swim's Robot Chicken, which he lends his voice to!

There were unconfirmed reports last summer that due to his heroin addiction Macaulay only had 6 months to live, and this past winter there were rumors that he had wanted to take his own life!

We're so happy that those dark days seemed to have passed, and that Macaulay can be left home alone without any supervision!

We give his lifestyle change two bunny ears up in approval!

Vin Diesel is not a man that lets down his fans.

So when they demanded he get into a Marvel movie, Vin did NOT turn down the meeting! He says:

"I get the call, I go down to meet with Marvel- a great meeting! It was even talking about something so big I can't even talk about because it's like the merging of brands in a way. Which I won't get into.

But that was something way way way way way way way way down the road."

Whoa! Now we gotta know! It was actually his teasing of the meeting that led to Vin's role in Guardians Of The Galaxy! Vin didn't have time to play a live action role, but there was something he was perfect for! He says:

Catching Fire Director Quarter Quells Rumors That There Will Be Shaky Cam In Movie!

Sure, Star Trek had lens flare, and Hunger Games had shaky cam, but when it comes to Catching Fire, director Francis Lawrence (Jeez, the Lawrence clan is owning Hunger Games right now!) has made it clear that there will be no cause for rebellion.

In a recent interview at Comic-Con, Francis was asked about the usage of the motion sickness-inducing shaky cam in the upcoming sequel. Here's what he had to say:

“I did something different. That kind of style of camera work is not my thing. I like to be intimate with people but I also like to have a sense of place, so I shoot with different kinds of lenses and different kinds of different lighting. I think the look of the movie is very different from the first one. The costumes are a little different, the look and the light is a little different, the visual effects are different, and I think the set pieces, the action are pretty spectacular."

PHEW! Seriously, shaky cam can make someone dizzier than a tracker jacker sting! We want watching the cruel tournament to the death to make us feel nauseous, not the camera work!

It's good to hear that Francis seems to know how to work his machine of choice like the technically savvy Bee Tee!

Ever since the biggest superhero crossover of all time Superman VS Batman was announced at Comic-Con, everyone has been wondering who will be the new Batman now that Christian Bale is officially done.

Well, we hear the list is short, but it makes up for it by having some BIG names!

Ryan Gosling is certainly pretty enough to face off with Henry Cavill, and Joe Manganiello has the muscles.

We'd totes be happy with either one! Especially if the fight is mostly naked mud wrestling!

But according to rumors, the frontrunner is

Hugh Jackman Leaves Some Giant Claw Marks In The Bedroom!

In the bedroom, we always knew Hugh Jackman had a 12-inch long…razor sharp, Adamantium claw?!

In a recent interview, the Huge Jacked Man joked around saying he actually wears his costume to bed, including his retractable metal talons (and his big, smoking cigar):

"The sheets we go through…"

Yikes! We hope he doesn't have a water bed! On the subject of his untrimmed nails claws, his wife Deborra-Lee Furnace added:

"Oh my God, it’s dreadful! Always with the claws. I'm like, 'Mix the salad. Put them to use, come on!'"

Okay, she was close, Hugh, tried to domesticate ya! But you're an animal, Wolverine, it's in your nature!

Hugh has even walked around Comic-Con in his costume (we hope he washed it after his bedroom sesh…or not!) and apparently not one person stopped him.

We'd stop you, Hugh! Any. Day. Of. The. Week!
