Normally, we're used to seeing the Magic Mike side of Channing Tatum, and no one's complaining.



But it's easy to forget that he's also a good guy. While promoting his passion project at Comic-Con, a solo superhero flick about Gambit, the 21 Jump Street star rushed to help veteran nerd hero, Stan Lee off the stage after taking an awesome selfie. 



Way to go Channing, those Southern manners are going to come in handy when you start shooting Gambit.

The guys at Tested made this amazing Rancor cosplay in honor of Return of the Jedi. The original movie makers tried to make a live suit for the effect, but were unable to accomplish the feat in 1983.

These folks got it done in 3 weeks. It's enough to make you cry...



Those arms are a little silly though,

San Diego Comic Con attendees at the Warner Bros panel this morning got to see new footage from Batman v Superman, featuring Wonder Woman and Lex Luthor in action. Luckily for us, Warmer Bros has already put it up online. The cast of BvS took the stage to talk production and revealed some interesting tidbits:

  • Christian Bale's advice to Ben Affleck re: the Batman suit: "make sure you can piss in that thing." Touché, Bale, touché.
  • Batman v Superman is an homage to Frank Miller and the Dark Knight, according to Snyder, but is not the same story.
  • Gotham and Metropolis are twin cities in the film, much like Oakland and San Francisco.
  • Batman's suit in BvS is intentionally larger to protect him from Superman, so maybe it won't be as cheesy as it looked in some of the promo images.


Attendees also got a look at Suicide Squad, which many described on Twitter as being very dark, cynical, and violent. Looks like there won't be any goofy, Marvel-esque antics here. Watch the potato quality version below:





The panel also revealed that next Green Lantern film won't be just another retelling of Hal Jordan's story; it'll feature the Green Lantern Corps, an intergalactic police force made up of more than 7000 lanterns. This reveal isn't surprising, given Tyrese Gibson's recent tease of two lanterns on Instagram:

Kevin Doyle walked to Comic Con this year, all the way from his home in Petaluma, CA which is over 500 miles north of San Diego. To give you an idea, take a look at the Google Map:



Not only did Kevin walk around 600 miles to SDCC, he did it in full Stormtrooper armor:




He made this journey for his wife, Eileen who tragically passed from pancreatic cancer in 2012 at the age of 45. For Kevin, this walk is a way to celebrate and mourn the loss of his wife, keep a promise and raise money for a charity he's created in her honor. Called Eileen's Little Angels, the charity provides gifts to children going through chemotherapy.

Kevin officially finished his journey Thursday, July 9th, but you can always help out his cause by donating here.

Remember when you lived in blissful ignorance and you thought there was only one Hunger Games movie left? Well, that probably isn't the case. In the same interview with Conan O'Brien where JLaw adorably sang Cher's "Believe" (see video above), Josh Hutcherson pulled a Peeta and accidentally revealed that there may be more Hunger Games films. 

Conan asked the stars if there were any plans for a prequel or sequel to the series, to which Josh Hutcherson replied "there is. I’m sorry, I can’t say that. We’ll see what happens." Get it together, Peeta! This is why no one likes you. Learn to keep a secret!

Meanwhile, Conan provided JLaw with a swear jar and challenged her to say as many swears for charity as she could in 30 seconds. They were forced to bleep her swears for TV, but it seems like she gets pretty creative with her foul mouth:
