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.

Teen Titans Television Series Starring Nightwing to Shoot Next Year — It's confirmed, true believers. DC Comics' Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns tweeted enthusiastically that the Titans pilot would be shot next year, and that Nightwing would finally be coming to live-action TV.

Ryan Reynolds Will Return as Deadpool, Tweets Coolest Tease He Possibly Could — Yes, he'll be back. And it's blantantly obvious that Ryan Reynolds couldn't be more excited. Just look at this tweet referencing the comic book character's favorite food: Uh... It's Chimichanga Time. - Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) December 4, 2014 It's a pretty big day in comic book movie news: Benedict Cumberbatch was also confirmed in the role of Stephen Strange today, along with Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones.

Bond 24 Will Be Called — Finally, the moment we've all been waiting for since the teasing finale of Skyfall, which brought Daniel Craig's James Bond back into the fold at MI6 and introduced Ralph Fiennes as a new M and the beautiful Naomie Harris as Moneypenny.

James Bond Has a Secret Grudge Against Austin Powers for Stealing His Mojo — It's true. James Bond's most villainous enemy was hiding the whole time-behind Wayfarer glasses and machine-gun breasts timed to Nancy Sinatra tunes. He stole all of 007's fun and jealously kept it for himself. As a result of the evil machinations of the notorious Mr. Austin Powers, James Bond not only never got his own set of Fembots: He never got his own office chair.

What Would Happen If Your Superhero Action Figures Came to Life — So this is basically Toy Story if they got all the rights to the fictional heroes you actually wanted to see in Toy Story, right? Photographer Daniel Picard has created scenes using action figures of favorite characters-from movies, comics, and every other medium made to sell merchandise-only he's thrown them into the "real world."

Margot Robbie Perfect Harley Quinn Casting — Now we're talking. This morning we're getting word that DC has a new confirmed cast member for its upcoming villain-led Suicide Squad film: The Wolf of Wall Street's Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn . For the uninitiated, Harley Quinn is the Joker's girlfriend and a formidable villain her own right.
