Uh…wow. I keep trying to keep a level head about the Gotham Knight anime, with the high probability of problems between the American writers and Japanese directors, the more-than-occasional artsy goofiness of anime “auteurs,” and the usual soulless cash-in status of these types of things, but man, Gotham Knight looks good. It’s made me release some kind of liquid in my pants, although I’m not sure which. I’ll update you later.
Pity the poor Incredible Hulk movie for having the bad luck to release its movie poster the same day as the above trailer:
While I’m so exited to see the Hulk’s back (because that way the front is saved for the movie! I wonder what he could possibly look like?!) it really just looks like the Hulk is going to sit down and get a mopey Ed Norton trapped between his enormous ass cheeks.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
