Stan Lee, Legendary Comics Writer and Editor Who Co-Created the Marvel Universe, Dies at 95
Stan Lee, the legendary comic book writer and editor who helped redefine the medium when he co-created much of Marvel Comics’ vast library of characters and concepts, died Monday, according to THR. He was 95.

Working alongside fellow comics titans like Steve Ditko and Jack Kirby during the 1960s, Lee was instrumental in sparking what became known as “the Marvel revolution,” a shift in superhero comics that emphasized flawed protagonists expressing humanistic values. Concepts and plots remained as colorful and weird as ever. But Marvel characters, written with complex, realistic personalities and mundane private lives, often had to resolve family, dating and even financial challenges while protecting the public from an increasingly packed roster of supervillains.

This new approach to superhero comics debuted in “The Fantastic Four,” a team of superheroes presented as a dysfunctional but loving family unit that Lee co-created with Kirby in 1961. Lee credited his wife, Joan, for

What the Forky? New ‘Toy Story 4’ Character Explained

What the Forky? New ‘Toy Story 4’ Character Explained
Leave it to “Toy Story” to grapple with the big questions in life. Why are we here? Why are we alive? What is life about? And who — or what — is Forky?

That’s the question confusing many online after Disney and Pixar released the first teaser for “Toy Story 4.” The trailer features the toys prancing in a slow motion circle to the tune of Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now,” only for a spork with googly eyes and red pipe cleaners (as voiced by “Veep’s” Tony Hale) to shriek in terror, “I don’t belong here.”

Because Forky may not be a “toy.” Director Josh Cooley explains in the announcement for the teaser that he is an actual spork-turned-craft-project. And though Bonnie, the new young girl and owner of all of Andy’s old toys, plays with Forky as though he were one, he feels he doesn’t belong.

GQ Magazine Slammed for Serena Williams ‘Woman of The Year’ Cover: ‘I’m Speechless’

GQ is facing heat for their “Woman of the Year” cover with Serena Williams after the magazine decided to put the word woman in quotation marks. Critics online said the decision was a swipe at Williams’ gender.

“They really put ‘Woman’ in quotes in reference to Serena and no one at the table thought it was a bad idea,” said one critic. “I’m speechless.”

‘Roma’: Cultures Collide in Powerful Trailer for Alfonso Cuaron’s New Film
Oscar-winning director Alfonso Cuarón examines the entwined stories of working and middle class families in Seventies Mexico in the new trailer for his upcoming film, Roma.

Like the first trailer for Roma, the new one doesn’t offer much in the way of distinct plot points, though it does create a powerful mood with the help of Pink Floyd’s “The Great Gig In the Sky.” The clip juxtaposes intimate family moments with celebrations and social upheaval, while it also captures the broad scope of Mexican culture, with scenes from

For those who think Walter White (Bryan Cranston) must have survived the “Breaking Bad” series finale in light of all this talk of a big-screen movie, think again.

“Yes!” Cranston responded. “What are they gonna show me on a slab or something? That’s not exciting.”

‘The Kominsky Method’ Review: A Comedy That’s Better With Age

In the third episode of Netflix’s charming new silver-haired comedy The Kominsky Method, Michael Douglas pees in the hedges outside the home of the woman he’s dating. This could merely be an easy joke at the expense of a senior citizen with less control over his bodily functions than he once had. And to a degree it is. (Later, he tells a friend, “Yesterday, I kissed a woman goodnight, then urinated on her bush.”) But that joke and all the other ones about Douglas’ weak stream — including a

‘Widows’ Review: Four Women, a Heist and One Hell of a Ride
There are heist movies — and then there are heist movies directed by Steve McQueen, the incomparable artist behind 12 Years a Slave. Is the Oscar-winner slumming? Hardly. In Widows, about four Chicago women out to finish a robbery that their dead husbands barely started, the filmmaker brings everything he has as an artist to this raw, resonant thriller. The screen damn near explodes as his genre caper suddenly encompasses a whole social strata (race, class, politics, gender). You’re in for a hell of a ride.

Watch Corden, Kimmel on This Year’s Most Disturbing Gift: Trumpy Bear
James Corden and Jimmy Kimmel had a field day with new commercials for Trumpy Bear, a Trump-inspired teddy-bear that resurfaced Monday during a commercial that aired – unsurprisingly – during Fox & Friends.

The stuffed bear is outfitted with a white collar, white cuffs, long red tie and a certain unmistakable blonde combover. It even has an American flag blanket stuffed inside. And as Corden cracked on The Late Late Show, “If you press his paw, Trumpy Bear even writes a check to Barbie and calls her a horseface.”

CNN Files Lawsuit Against Trump Administration Over Jim Acosta White House Ban

CNN officially filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration after the White House revoked press credentials for their White House correspondent Jim Acosta last week.

“If left unchallenged, the actions of the White House would create a dangerous chilling effect for any journalist who covers out elected officials,” it continued.

This morning, CNN filed a lawsuit against @realDonaldTrump and top aides. The White House has violated CNN and @Acosta's First Amendment rights of freedom of the press and Fifth Amendment rights to due process.
