Iron Man, Thor, Captain America. Each hero has his own movies, but all fall under the blanket of The Avengers. And it's a blanket made of cash!
According to Box Office Mojo, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is now officially the most successful franchise in film history!
After The Winter Soldier's blockbusting first week, Marvel's total box office gross is $2.47 billion!
That officially puts it over Harry Potter, a close second with $2.39 billion, and Star Wars with $1.9 billion!
But how long can Marvel last on top? There are three Fantastic Beasts movies just dying to sink their claws into the box office, and Star Wars is finally going to kick back into hyperdrive in 2015.
But Marvel can keep putting out two or more big movies every year! No matter who comes out on top, it's audiences - and Hollywood - that are winning big!
OH! WHAT!?! This is so exciting!!
The Curiosity Rover, which likes to do it's own thing up there on the red planet, photographed a flash of blinding white light on the surface of Mars!
Which is SO COOL!
But, does this mean there's alien?!?! Have we FINALLY found proof of alien life?!
Yes, it's official! Disney is letting the Wookie win!
Looks like everyone's favorite citizen of Kashyyyk will be making an appearance in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII, as sources say that Peter Mayhew has been added to the cast!
First we hear casting is almost complete, and now we have the excellent news that Han Solo's trusted co-pilot, co-smuggler, and overall fuzz ball, Chewbacca, is in it, and Peter will be reprising the role himself.
Congrats, Peter! We can't wait to see you up on the big screen again!
No, Admiral Akbar, this news is NOT a trap!
In a recent interview, Disney chairman Alan Horn admitted (without the use of a IT-O interrogator droid), that most of the casting has actually been completed for the much anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII:
"We have a lot of them, it’s not completely done yet."
Looks like JJ Abrams has said, "these ARE the actors we're looking for," with or without the use of a Jedi mind trick! Our mind just got exploded like Alderaan!
Not only that, but Alan also gave some AH-Mazing news that would make
JJ Abrams is channeling A New Hope for his upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII, and we are filled with the fire of Tatooine's two suns we're that excited!
According to Lost-alumni Dominic Monaghan, JJ is looking to cast some fresh new faces for this new galactic installation:
The most bad ass asthmatic in the Galaxy is invading Earth, starting in the one place that probably needs the most help fighting their own evil Empire: the Ukraine!
Okay, well sort of. The Ukrainian Internet Party is officially backing Darth Vader as their choice for the Ukraine's upcoming presidential election!
With Russian troops still amassed on the Ukraine's border (although a battalion has reportedly left), the threat of more military conflict is still great. This place is strong with the dark side of the force!
Sure, the Russians may have annexed Crimea from the Ukraine, but with this Sith lord in charge, all he'd need to do is send a couple ATATs in there, and do a little "VOOSH-VOOSH" with his lightsaber and bring balance to the place!
Meanwhile, Darth addressed the election himself in a party message:
Uh oh! Looks like Star Wars's Episode 7 may have found a new, tiny addition!
No, we're not mind tricking you! Dreamworks animator Daniel Hashimoto deserves a seat on the Jedi Council for awesome parenting when he decided to edit a video of his son playing with
