Now HERE’s the Marvel Cinematic Universe crossover I’ve been waiting for …
Last year, I totally fangeeked over the Spider-Man: No Way Out film. The movie found a way to weave together the last three Spider-Man actors into one cohesive and totally action-packed film.

It starred Tobey Maguire as the web-slinger, against Willem Dafoe as the Green Goblin. A few years later, the even more popular Spider-Man 2 came…Read More
Hurry! Only five more Batmobiles left!!
About ten years ago, I blogged about a company in Indiana, Fiberglass Freaks, who take regular cars and customize them into replicas of the Batmobile from 1966-69 Batman TV series. Originally the Batmobile from the show was a Lincoln Futura concept car, and was heavily customized from its original look to become the legendary supercar…Read More

I recently acquired the upgraded Apple TV unit, and after installing it and connecting it to my home computer network and adding all my normal streaming channels – I saw the option to add the DC Universe streaming service.
