The Hint in the New Avengers: Age of Ultron Trailer We've Been Waiting For — The newest trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron has just been released from the Marvel camp, and this one has considerably more information as to the film itself than we've seen yet. The whole thing is worth a watch, but here are a few random notes we picked up on.

Scott McCloud Picks Best Comics — You might call Scott McCloud the John Berger of comic books. For 20 years, McCloud was known for drawing panels of himself playing teacher, explaining the theory behind comic books just as the English art critic Berger had filmed himself in Ways of Seeing explaining the aesthetics of visual imagery.

Spider-Man Will Return to Marvel Universe — In a new partnership announced late Monday night, Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures Entertainment reassured fans everywhere that, after much kerfuffling with film rights, Spider-Man would be brought back to where he belongs-with all the other Marvel universe characters that helped define the franchise for the last five decades.

The Strongest Man on Game of Thrones Is Now the Strongest Viking in 1,000 Years — By Eric Vilas-Boas on February 3, 2015 Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, famous for portraying The Mountain- Game of Thrones's largest, strongest, and arguably most brutal character-has once again proven that he is possibly the coolest strongman alive.

Game of Thrones Season 5 Premiere — For Game of Thrones fans, today has been a roller coaster. A stunning new trailer premiered (with TV on the Radio and David Bowie!) gave us our first substantial look at Season Five. Maisie Williams, aka Arya Stark, gave us the rundown on The Hound's real-life farting habits . George R.R.

These McDonald's Parodies Just Made Their Latest Crappy Ad Worth It — You may have skipped both the NFL playoffs and the Golden Globes telecast over the weekend, and that's okay. But then you may be a tad confused by all the sudden outrage you've been seeing online directed at McDonald's for its ad campaign "Signs," which many denizens of the internet feel more or less amounted to a brand steamrolling over the sorrow, loss, and hardship of Americans to make a buck.

Even Joel McHale Endorsed Obama's Community College Idea — As he announced yesterday in the video above, Barack Obama plans to officially propose a government initiative to make the first two years of community college free for people across the country, as long as they are "willing to work for it."

Scarlett Johansson Ghost in the Shell Casting — Scarlett Johansson doesn't seem to be leaving the Hollywood action movie any time soon, and that's a good thing. Following rumors that she was being considered for the role, Variety has confirmed that she will star in the upcoming Hollywood remake of Ghost in the Shell, the seminal anime and manga.

Marvel's 'Ant-Sized' Teaser for — The Ant-Man cometh! And he's appropriately ant-sized, if Marvel's latest trailer is to be believed. No matter how hard we squint we can't really make out what's going on. The gimmick is a bit on-the-nose but otherwise successful given how much it's made the Internet swarm already.
