IGN Assemble!: What’s the Deal With Catwoman?

I hope your pants are loosened, because this one's another Assemble After Dark.

Ben and I let our hair down and dig in on our thoughts about the worst comic book movie adaptation, the character of the Punisher, and the post-apocalyptic future that our kids will no doubt thrive in. We also touch on IGN's partnership with Valiant Comics and my trip to the set of Man of Steel.

Though it was a light week, we talk about this week's comics: Justice League of America, Adventures of Superman, X-Men, Indestructible Hulk, Wolverine and the X-Men, and The Wake.

As always, there are spoilers for everything discussed, so you've been warned.

Guardians of the Galaxy Boldest Marvel Movie?

A few months ago, I excitedly posted a Hero Worship column about Robert Redford being cast in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, calling it “one of the greatest things

to superheroes.” While I maintain that sentiment, my mind was once again blown apart by the latest Guardians of the Galaxy casting news, in which Glenn Close reportedly joined the cast as, get this, the leader of the Nova Corps.

Here’s Heath Ledger’s Dark Knight Joker Diary

A new video has emerged which spotlights the late Heath Ledger's Joker "diary" that he used while prepping to make The Dark Knight.

We'd heard about such a diary before. Ledger told Empire the following back in 2007: "I sat around in a hotel room in London for about a month, locked myself away, formed a little diary and experimented with voices -- it was important to try to find a somewhat iconic voice and laugh. I ended up landing more in the realm of a psychopath -- someone with very little to no conscience towards his acts. He’s just an absolute sociopath, a cold-blooded, mass-murdering clown, and Chris
