The brutal yet delightful showdown between Marvel and DC rages on as Warner Bros. execs are scrambling to make some moves seeing as they have to sit back and watch The Avengers become a worldwide box office juggernaut (1.4$ billion) while it boasts a formidable critical reception(93%). Warner Bros. president and CEO Jeff Robinov and company have their work cut our for them as sources say they are currently spit-balling ferociously to figure out how to put a successful and high-caliber Justice League of America franchise together. A major factor in accomplishing such a feat involves wooing and recruiting big boss-man randy savage Christopher Nolan to spearhead what would essentially be a “JLA initiative” — re-invigorating Warner Bros’ stake in Hollywood.

A Bloodthirsty Intergalactic General on a mission to rid the universe of existence, if Thanos is conceived and casted correctly; he could serve as Marvel’s ultimate supervillain.
Who is Marvel’s God of War you ask? A character based off of the Greek God of Death? Let’s take a look.
The Voice is unmistakable.
You know the music.
There is a fifth dimension, beyond that which is known to man.
It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition. And, it lies between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the …

“I’m a sworn enemy of the convention. I despise the conventional in anything, even the arts”
Hedwig Kiesler, was declared the “most beautiful women in the world,” but she quickly got bored of the sobriquet. She did not play the Hollywood game. She spent many of her evenings creating. But few would know, what she was creating for it was classified as secret for 40 years.
“Any girl can be glamorous — all you have to do is stand still and look stupid”
Six different husbands. All married her for different reasons. But not any like her father. He loved his daughter for her intelligence, not for her beauty. It was he, who encouraged her to ask how things work, which gave her a supreme self confidence even by the tender age of 15. ”I must make my own decisions. Mould my own character, think my own thoughts.”
He is grateful for a second chance. And he is doing well with it – at least for now.
Yes, he screwed up before – royally. He knew it. “I had burned bridges”
No, it wasn’t the addiction. No, that wasn’t it.
“It was the anger.”
“I had issues with anger. I wasn’t behaving professionally. I wasn’t accountable, no consequences, no rules.”
