A Haker posts nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence

So here's the deal: A hacker known by 4 Chan posted some nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence, you definitely've seen her movies: Hunger Games and X-Men. You've seen her perform recently in X-Men: Days of Future Past as Mystique. Once the images leaked you've seen them on all celebrities gossip blogs, including on Perez Hilton, who was one of the first to post them live.

Eventually, Perez said he is sorry for what he did and he "acted in haste just to get the post up and didn't really think things through".

Not as sorry as he will be once Law's lawyers are done with him, am I right? Lawyers can't do anything outside of try to bankrupt him. That's the beauty of being "The Press": you can post illegally gotten docs as long as you are not the source.

Lucky he, he wasn't the one who leaked them, but I bet he wishes that!

The leaked images are nowhere to be found, now that she announced that whoever posts them again will be prosecuted.

What about privacy next time guys?

 

What Lynda Carter thinks about Gal gadot's costume!

Yes you all know her, Lynda Carter, who played Wonder Woman in the 70's. Gal Gadot, known by her role is Fast & Furious is going to play the amazonian princess in the movie that everybody awaits: Batman v Superman, and Lynda shared her thoughts about her costume in a recent interview with Access Hollywood.

It was a pretty big deal when at the San Diego Comic Con, Snyder released the first look at gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and her awesome costume, which by the way, got a very positive response from fans.

The thing is that the 2014 costume for Wonder Woman is very different for the one from the 70's and by different I mean there's no resemblance between the two of them whatsoever. And here's what Carter thinks about it:

"Well, I was missing the red, white and blue, I have to say, [...] Maybe there's a lot more color in it than what we saw in the picture. It's almost impossible to play a superhero anyway. You can't. You just have to play a character that happens to do these amazing things. That's the only way you can do it. And the costumes all take care of themselves, but it was a little more – I'll have to wait and see. I hate to comment on something that I haven't seen and I'm very supportive of Gal Gadot. I'm very supportive of them doing Wonder Woman, putting her in any capacity. I think she needs to be out there. ... It's high time somebody took a chance and did it and so I'm really happy about that."
 
Now that we know that Lynda wants more color, what about you guys? Do you agree with her or is it just perfect for you?

 

Axel Alonso - editor in chief at Marvel - explains everything about Spider Woman #1 cover!

Milo Manara's Spider Woman #1 cover is still getting negative reviews and this keeps on going for 2 weeks now. Axel Alonso took an interview 2 days ago with the guys from Comic Book Resources, talked about the variant cover and apologized for the mixed message it sent. That doesn't mean that he won't do more Milo Manara's variants, due to his huge fan base and how of a good artist he makes.

Here's how Axel explains in more detail the cover:

"It's a limited edition variant that is aimed at collectors. While we would not have published this as the main cover to the book, we were comfortable publishing this as a variant that represented one artist's vision of the character[...]".

Here's the good news for those who were "sensitive" about it: It is not the official cover for the issue.

" It is a collector's item that is set aside or special ordered by completists -- and it doesn't reflect the sensibility or tone of the series any more than the Skottie Young variant or Rocket and Groot "Spider-Woman" variants.[...]"

The thing is that all that scandal about the cover happened when he was away in Korea. Axel states the fact that they are not perfect and they are doing the best job they can. Also the industry is not only about male superheroes, therefore these kind of discussions will be brought up from time to time by fans.

So don't make such a big deal about it, it's just a limited edition cover.

 

What if Marvel released sexy variant covers for male superheroes?

For the past week everybody talked about the cover of the upcoming Spider-Woman #1.

Some say that she looks like a creepy Michael Jackson or her face & head looks like it's on wrong. At the beginning everybody said it's too sexual. After that, they looked closely at the artwork and said it's bad.

We've seen Spiderman strike similar poses many times in the past. It makes sense for a hero(ine) with spider-like abilities to emulate spiders. I've asked some opinions on Reddit and here's what somebody said: "This isn't just an issue with this cover though. It's really an issue with the way most super-hero(in)es are drawn. Many artists really don't draw clothing right. They basically draw it as if it perfectly followed the contours of human skin. Even when it would stretch over gaps".

BUT: What if Marvel released sexy variant covers for male superheroes? Would you react the same? Take a look.

Action Comics #1 sells for $3.2 million. Take that Nicolas Cage!

Remember a few years ago when a copy of Action Comics #1, owned by Nicolas Cage, was sold for $2.16 million? Well, there is a new record, since a few hours ago, when another copy of the same comic, was sold on eBay for $3.2 million.
The things people do for their comics, are sometimes unbelievable. Before I go into that, let me tell you its owners history -short version - : Original owner bought it in 1938 and kept it in a cedar box, according to ComicBookResources, for 4 decades, then was bought by a local dealer in West Virginia, then another person who held it for like 30 years and several years ago Darren Adams bought it at a private sale.
One of the owners held it in a cedar box, the last one locked it in a vault, while controlling the temperature. I mean, wow, the things some do for their comics. Anyway, apparently this is the finest one of its kind and for now on it helds the record - The first comic sold at more than $3 million at an auction.

This is going to shock you - Did you know that Marvel Comics almost never existed?

If Martin Goodman, the man that launched the company that would later become Marvel Comics, would have stuck with his original traveling plans in 1927, Marvel would have never existed. That year Martin was on his honeymoon in Europe with his wife.

For the return in the US, Martin had plans to ride the exciting new Hinderburg airship, but he was late to buy tickets and we couldn't get 2 seats next to each other, so he and his wife took a plane instead. The crazy thing is, the Hindenburg airship crashed killing 35 people on board. Martin Goodman however made it back from his honeymoon and went on to found Timely Comics later that year, which became Atlas Comics in 1951 and finally Marvel Comics in 1961.

All that being said, thank God Martin didn't get on the Hidenburg.

Our lives are so much better now that Marvel Comics do exist. But, for the sake of the subject, what would you have done IF they would have never existed?
