It’s ‘Teen Wolf’ Star Tyler Posey vs. The Giving Tree In This Horror Movie Parody Trailer

the-giving-tree

"They took my leaves..."

Shel Silverstein's "The Giving Tree" -- depending on how you look at it -- is either of the most depressing reads in all of children's literature, or a sweet tale of selfless love and companionship. In the story, a little boy takes all that his tree friend provides for him until there's nothing left but a stump. But what if the tree wasn't selflessly giving? What if the boy was selfishly taking? Would the tree be angry? Would the tree want...revenge?

That answer to that question is the basis for Funny or Die's "Evil Dead"-inspired "The Giving Tree" horror movie trailer starring "Teen Wolf's" Tyler Posey.

"And the tree was happy."

Simon Pegg Might Be Ant-Man And More Hints From Marvel’s Celeb Photo Ops

simon pegg ant-man

Simon Pegg, longtime collaborator and friend of "Ant-Man" director Edgar Wright, has been on fans' shortlist of actors they'd like to see portray Hank Pym (or Scott Lang) in the upcoming flick. There's been no solid info on the casting front until earlier today, when Pegg tweeted the above image during his visit to the Marvel officies. He IS pointing at Ant-Man, isn't he?

Pegg also posted pics of himself holding Mjolnir and hanging with the Hulk, but neither of those images have the actor pointing at the very character that he's been favored to play. So we don't care about those.

Like our old pal Vin Diesel, Pegg chose to tease fans by posing in front of an image of comic book characters. Now we know that Vin wasn't just teasing, he's all but confirmed that he'll be Groot in "Guardians of the Galaxy." So there MUST be something to this actors standing in front of stuff social media posts, right?

So we did some digging through Marvel's Instagram and found some VERY intriguing images. Check these out and get ready to flip. Marvel is going to make some waves!

Here's legendary hip-hop star DMC. And who's that in the upper left hand corner? None other than LUKE CAGE!

dmc-marvel

Here's "30 Rock" funnyman Scott Adsit. And is that The Thing down on the right?

scott-adsit-marvel

We found this shot of "SNL's" Bobby Moynihan. Could Drunk Uncle be the next Spider-Woman? (she's behind his left fist)

bobby-moynihan-marvel

And hold the flaming phone! Are these...people going to be Ghost Rider now that Johnny Blaze has ridden his way back into the Marvel movieverse?

band-marvel

Yes!

CONFIRMED!

‘Batman: Zero Year – Behind the Bat’: Scott Snyder On Crossovers And More [EXCLUSIVE]

batman-23-crop

Last week, in an interview with Batman editor Mark Marts we revealed that DC is releasing a series of crossovers set within the new continuity of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's "Zero Year." We asked Snyder about the inspiration and logistics behind the crossovers and more in the latest newest of our exclusive behind the scenes series "Batman: Zero Year - Behind the Bat."

Snyder told us:

When they ask me about doing crossover stuff, my inclination is always, usually, to say no. But what I'll try and do is go over and talk to the other writers and say, 'is this something you'd actually like to do?' And if they want to do it, then I become more open to it and say, "look, are you sure you want to do it, do you have a story? I don't want you to do it if you think it'll boost sales, I want you to do it because you have a story you like.

Watch: Batman: Zero Year | Episode 3 Pre-Show

Snyder went on to explain how the crossover's bled into titles outside the Bat-family like "Green Arrow," "The Flash," "Green Lantern Corps," and others:

If you read them, you'll get a bigger picture of what's happening in Gotham and all that stuff. They will tie into the series themselves. Meaning, we don't just want them to be standalone, weird things that happen and then they have no relationship that's happening in those series.

Find out more from Snyder in the video above and be sure to watch the rest of our "Behind the Bat" series right here:

Badger’s ‘Star Trek’ Pitch From ‘Breaking Bad’ Gets Animated

breaking-bad-star-trek

On last night's "Breaking Bad," the most important detail that was revealed wasn't how Hank would react to learning that Walt was the very meth mastermind that he's been hunting. It was the fact that Jesse's pals Badger and Skinny Pete are a couple of hardcore Trekkies, who are so into the entire run of TV series and films that Badger has even come up with his own pitch for "Trek" story.

Matt Czap animated the sequence for Vulture in the video above and I think we can all agree, Paramount should get Badger on the horn to pitch a few ideas for the next "Star Trek" flick. Yo.
