Sure, some people go to Comic-Con to check out what's coming up in the wide world of comic book-related properties (and more, so much more), but plenty of fans take it as an opportunity to bring their own, already existing talents to the big stage. And what talents they are! If there's one thing that every single Comic-Con can always deliver, it's an eye-popping array of fresh new cosplay outfits and get-ups, and this week's 'con is no different -- and it's just getting started.
Family trees in the Marvel universe -- cinematic or purely comic book -- tend to be a little twisted. When it comes to James Gunn's upcoming 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' that's definitely still the case, thanks to a pair of adopted sisters that look poised to spend the film's runtime slowly moving away from each other and towards opposite ends of the personality spectrum, with plenty of hand-to-hand combat to keep things strange.
We already know that Conan O'Brien is super stoked about his latest star turn in sure-to-be-blockbuster 'Sharktopus Vs. Pteracuda' -- the man did already buy his own billboard to boast about his performance -- but that doesn't mean that we as an audience are that excited to see him in the new feature. Really, what's the 'Conan' host going to do with a lil cameo in a monster movie?
Marvel has been making some big changes to its standard comic book lore lately -- introducing both a new female Thor and a new black Captain America over the course of mere days -- and rival comic book giant DC does not want to be left behind. DC is progressive, too, you guys, and what better time to unveil their new take on a beloved superheroine than during Comic-Con week? It just makes sense!
If there's one thing you need to remember about comedians, it's that despite the chuckles, belly laughs, and guffaws that they can inspire in other people, they tend to be kind of grumpy on their own. Just look at Ricky Gervais! He's been nominated for yet another Emmy (he's already won two), but all the guy can think about is the thank you that's owed to him from yet another comedian, who just so happens to also be an Emmy nominee.
If you've already made plans to check out James Gunn's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' as soon as the latest entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe hits theaters on August 1st, you probably don't need any extra nudge to get your butt into a cushy multiplex seat. But if you've been wondering if you should experience the film in IMAX and haul out for a midnight screening, it looks like the scales have just now been gloriously tipped.
Do you remember the Fungo Brothers? That mismatched sibling duo who were hellbent on creating bold, innovative workout techniques that were years ahead of their time? You know them! They invented the Thigh Master before it was, well, the Thigh Master. Not ringing a bell? That's okay, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Jimmy Fallon are here to help.
Sure, when you think of actors who have died a lot on screen, there's probably one name that instantly comes to mind: Sean Bean. But don't let the 'Game of Thrones' actor's constant dying-off fool you, there are lots of other actors who bite it all the time. Like Gary Oldman, who is apparently in the top ten of actors who die the most on screen (who exactly is crunching these numbers?).
Don't let Kate Hudson's giggling and big smiles fool you. This is a great, great Box of Lies competitor who sits before you. On last night's 'Tonight Show,' Hudson and host Jimmy Fallon faced off for another round of Box of Lies, a game that basically hinges on a guest's ability to lie effectively.
There's this movie -- just a space opera in the Marvel Cinematic Universe -- that's coming out next week: 'Guardians of the Galaxy.' Maybe you've heard of it. Late-night talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel is probably counting on that, because he basically let the cast of the film, including Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel, run the show on last night's 'Jimmy Kimmel Live.'
Don't mess with Conan O'Brien's masturbating bear. Just don't, it's the wrong thing to do. The host of 'Conan' has long featured the bear on his various late-night shows, and he is a truly beloved member of the O'Brien family, which is what makes Stephen Colbert's recent claim that his show was the first to feature a bear touching himself on air so truly egregious. It's just wrong, Colbert! And Conan is not happy with you!
Supermodel Miranda Kerr has never played flip cup -- she is, after all, an Australian, and there seems to be some debate that flip cup is an inherently American game -- but that doesn't mean that the beauty doesn't have skills. In fact, she's really good, and she definitely put 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon on the spot last night when the duo took to the Official Tonight Show Flip Cup Table (not a thing, but let's pretend it is) for a round of the drinking game.
