Cap Thor

The whole point of "The Avengers" is that there are six of them. Few things are cooler than seeing Iron Man, Cap, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye all on screen together, but there are certainly moments when they shine in pairs.

In the heat of battle, the group can get separated, but some of finest moments in "The Avengers" came when group broke off to form temporary dynamic duos.

So who was your favorite pair? Vote in the poll after the jump!

Avengers Poll

By now you're probably recovering from your midnight showing of the ultimate superhero event of the millennium, "The Avengers." Hopefully the coffee has started to kick in and you can finally process all of the awesome that you witnessed last night.

But what did you think? Did seeing Iron Man, Captain America, the Hulk and Thor all together on the same screen do it for you? Was the Hulk everything that people hyped him up to be?

The majority of opinions out there for "The Avengers" certainly have been favoring the positive, lest Samuel L. Jackson lash out at you on Twitter. It seems like Joss Whedon and company have delivered on the hopes and dreams of every fanboy and fangirl out there.

By now, most of you know that a major character bit the dust on "Walking Dead" last Sunday, even if you don't know exactly who that character is. For before-the-jump spoiler-avoiding purposes, we'll refer to the deceased as Victim X.

Well, Victim X will be getting some company from Y, Z and perhaps a few other letters before "Walking Dead" season two concludes in two episodes. Heck, s/he'll get some company as soon as this week's coming episode, "Better Angels." Lots of rumors have been swirling about regarding the show's next victim, but the truth won't really be out there until the episode airs.

As this is "The Walking Dead," there's no shortage of people who could kick the bucket in Sunday night's episode. Keep reading for our rundown of likely candidates, then vote in our poll below with your pick for the next "Dead" casualty.



Earlier in the week, "Avengers" director Joss Whedon pointed at the incredible Hulk as the most difficult of Earth's Mightiest Heroes to translate to the screen. Ask the co-hosts of Talk Nerdy, and you'll get some different opinions in the mix.

No doubt, Hulk's a tough nut to crack, but there are a lot of tricky pieces to put in place in order for "Avengers" to come out successfully. So we want to know from you: which Avenger are you most worried about Joss Whedon pulling off without a hitch? Vote in our poll and explain your choice in the comments section or on Twitter!


Yes, I know, we just finished this year's show. But it's never too late to look ahead at next year's Academy Awards, particularly when 2012 represents such a massive year for movies. There are all sorts of excellent films coming our way in the next several months, both big and small, though perhaps none more exciting than Christopher Nolan's third and final trip to Gotham City.

Of course, Nolan has done the Oscar dance with Batman in the past, to mixed degrees of success. Yes, Heath Ledger won a much deserved posthumous Best Supporting Actor for playing Joker in "The Dark Knight." But that wasn't satisfying to many fans who believed that "Dark Knight" should have been honored as a Best Picture nominee. To date, it's an oversight that still rubs the geek community the wrong way.

But there's a chance for redemption come next year's Oscars. With the Best Picture field opened up to as many as ten nominees (a decision likely triggered by the "Dark Knight" omission in 2009's telecast), the chances of "Dark Knight Rises" succeeding where its predecessors were shut out are considerably higher — assuming the film is as amazing as we all hope it to be, of course.

So, yes, we're a year away from our next Oscars presentation, and countless excellent (and overrated) movies will come and go before then. But right here, right now, make your early prediction: will "Dark Knight Rises" finally bring Batman a Best Picture nomination at the Oscars? Vote in our poll past the break.

By now, many of you have witnessed Nicolas Cage's second transformation into the hellish "Ghost Rider" firsthand. "Spirit of Vengeance" roared into theaters this weekend with plenty of fury, placing third at the box office behind holdovers "Safe House" and "The Vow."

Critically, Cage's latest romp as Johnny Blaze hasn't fared too well, currently boasting a 15% fresh rating at Rotten Tomatoes (compared to the first "Ghost Rider" film's 27%). Personally, I loved "Spirit of Vengeance," but I fully recognize that it's not everybody's cup of tea. So, let's turn the question to you guys. What did you think of the latest "Ghost Rider" movie? Let us know in the poll below, and elaborate on your reaction in the comments section and on Twitter!

We now have the trailer for "The Amazing Spider-Man" that we've been waiting for, one that actually fulfills some of the promises of a reboot. The web shooters shoot. Spidey verbally berates carjackers and, more importantly, acts like Spider-Man. Surprising, huh?

As much as I enjoy the new trailer for "The Amazing Spider-Man," I have to question the use of the tagline "The Untold Story," because I'm pretty sure they told this story already. For all of its new additions and fixes, the sinking feeling that we've already seen this story and this movie may prove too difficult to escape. Perhaps they mean "untold" as if they're taking back the first three movies. Any way we can just un-tell "Spider-Man 3"?

After months of anticipation, the prologue for "The Dark Knight Rises" finally premiered in front of "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol." We now know how the first six minutes of the final movie will play out and we have seen Bane in action.

So, what did you think? Did Tom Hardy as Bane live up to your expectations? Did you understand anything he said? How could it possibly compare to the classic prologue from "The Dark Knight"?

We interviewed fans after a sneak preview of the prologue on Tuesday (December 16), and the response was overwhelmingly positive. Though there was some agreement that Bane's voice was difficult to understand, almost everyone said they weren't worried for the final film.
