Captain Planet is back, but it's debatable whether he's better than ever.
Don Cheadle's epic take on "Captain Planet and the Planeteers" first graced our lives last year, and we haven't been the same ever since. But as it quickly became clear in Cheadle's first Funny or Die skit, this wasn't Captain Planet as we best remembered him.
Well, Cheadle has shot a sequel to his first video, and Earth hasn't fared too well in the time since we last saw it. Check out the skit after the jump, and find out why one newscaster now calls Captain Planet the Earth's "cruel overlord."

When it comes to the rouges' gallery of Gotham, it's difficult to imagine them as anything other than fully formed adults. But considering that they're all roughly the same age, it stands to reason that some of them knew each other growing up or even went to high school together.
Or they all went to high school together.
This is how a new fan-made trailer for "Gotham High" sees things going. The clip, which comes from the folks over at Movie Clips Trailers, features many of the characters from Nolan's Batman universe (and the actors who played them) as teenagers.
The result is a convincing preview that mashes up teen movies like "10 Things I Hate About You," "The Breakfast Club," and, best of all, "Powder."

When I caught up with Jeremy Renner at "Saturday Night Live" last week, I asked him if we might see Earth's Mightiest Heroes take the Studio 8H stage. He said…
"Perhaps, perhaps not." Now that the show is over, we can change that answer to a definitive "yes." Renner was at the heart of a sketch that lampooned his "Avengers" hero's superpower — namely, the ability to shoot arrows like a total champ. Unless he runs out of arrows, that is. In which case, he's just a total chump.

You've surely seen the "Iron Man 3" trailer by now. And surely you've noticed something wrong with the whole picture: there's just too much damn budget in every shot.
But never fear: a new sweded version of the "Iron Man 3" trailer has fixed that problem.

"The Amazing Spider-Man" is coming out on Blu-ray and DVD in a week, so you know what that means: It's time for another Honest Movie Trailer.
Though the newest venture into the Spider-Man universe was received well when it hit theaters back in June, fans had plenty of nitpicks about the plot of the film. They might not be especially relevant anymore, but they're still hilarious to rehash and laugh at.
Enter the Honest Trailers' take on "The Amazing Spider-Man," which you can watch after the jump. Everything from The Lizard to Andrew Garfield's stutter were up to be mocked, and mocked they definitely were.
Halloween is here! It's a bit close to the starting line, sure, but is it ever too late for costume suggestions? If you're anything like us, you're running around headless trying to figure out what to wear to parties and as you go candy-collecting this evening.
But comic book movie fans, we implore you: resist those urges to wear the conventional "Avengers" and "Dark Knight Rises" costumes. There are so many better possible interpretations to comic book movies from 2012 that you can wear this year.
Read on for our least conventional comic book movie costume ideas!
"The Walking Dead" premiered its third season tonight, and true to its word, the pace of the episode, "Seed," was quicker and deadlier than season two's final escape from Hershel's farm. In fact, not everybody made it out of the premiere unscathed — one character in particular met a very gruesome ending indeed.
We spoke with the "Walking Dead" cast for their eulogies of the fallen hero. Read on for their thoughts. Needless to say, MASSIVE SPOILERS ahead!

Martin McDonagh's latest comedy, "Seven Psychopaths," tells the story of an aspiring screenwriter who unwittingly entangles himself in the criminal underworld of Los Angeles as his bizarre friends accidentally kidnap an unpredictable gangster's cherished Shih Tzu. With a star studded cast (Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken, Woody Harrelson, Tom Waits) and an engaging story, "Seven Psychopaths" is sure to be another home-run for the writer/director of 2008's "In Bruges."
In honor of McDonagh's new film, we've taken the liberty of compiling our own list of psychopaths. Comic book psychopaths, of course! These deranged madmen range everywhere from misjudged anti-hero to dangerous serial killer, but one thing that they all have in common is the fact that they are completely out of their minds.

Just how far back does Joss Whedon's hunger for Earth's mightiest snack — shawarma, for those not paying attention — really go? The answer: pretty damn far.
Courtesy of CinemaBlend, we have video evidence of Whedon chatting about Tony Stark's favorite mystery meat as far back as the "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" Chosen Collection. But the reason he's talking about it goes back even further: apparently, the entire reason that Nicholas Brendon won the role of Xander on "Buffy" is because he inserted a shawarma reference into his audition.
Even if 2012 was the Year of Bane, it'll always be the Year of the Joker.
Heath Ledger's Clown Prince of Crime remains at the heart of pop culture all these years since "The Dark Knight," inspiring countless forms of inventive cosplay and equally inventive memes — like the Joker Kid meme, launched on Reddit this week.
