The Worst Superhero Movies You've Never Seen

The Worst Superhero Movies You've Never Seen
When a superhero movie is good, it's incredible. There's a reason people dressed in their finest Batman suits for "The Dark Knight," and why more people saw The Avengers than there are people alive on Earth.

Okay, that last fact is not even close to being true, but you get the idea. Superheroes. Super popular.

And when a superhero movie is bad, everybody knows about it. Take "Batman & Robin," a movie so awful it killed the Batman franchise for nearly ten years, and still sends Batman fans into convulsions with a mere mention of the word "Bat-nipples."

Yet some superhero movies slip under...

Gabriel Macht: The Smartest Actor On Television

12/1/2011 11:00am EST
Gabriel Macht is a genius.

It isn't in the conventional sense. Measuring him by his IQ - whatever that may be - wouldn't do him justice. Neither would examining his lengthy filmography of over twenty years. Yet spend a few minutes in his company, and it becomes quickly apparent that he is brilliant. It's in his verbal acuity, which would make many professional writers envious. It's in the thought he gives to even the most casual of conversations. He's just plain smarter than you or me.

He's not the type to need to prove that to anyone. Yet with the success of USA Network's original...

Spanish actress Paz Vega has given birth to a baby boy - weeks before her due date.

The Spirit star and her husband Orson Salazar were preparing to welcome the tot into the world next month, but the actress underwent a Caesarean section in a Madrid, Spain hospital on Friday. The as-yet-unnamed tot weighed in at six pounds and is said to be doing well.

"The Spirit" star Paz Vega is set to welcome a new addition to her family - the actress is pregnant with her third child. The 34 year old and her husband Orson Salazar became parents for a second time last July when daughter Ava was born in Madrid, Spain.

However, they are now preparing for another arrival in September - and Vega admits the baby news came as a bit of a shock. She tells Hola! Magazine, "It's a surprise. This baby came a bit soon, but we're thrilled and happy."

And the couple is hoping baby number three will be a boy, a little brother for their two-year-old son Orson.

Scarlett Johansson
During her December 17 appearance on NBC's "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," actress Scarlett Johansson complained of a cold that she caught from Samuel L. Jackson, the co-star of her new film "The Spirit" -- and because the cold was the result of the convergence of two-megawatt stars, Johansson believed that her cold had some significant value. Leno decided to test that theory by providing her with a tissue, into which she blew her nose.

As a result, the star's tissue will be posted on eBay on Thursday, December 18 with all proceeds of the sale to benefit the charity of Scarlett Joh...

Celebrity Fashion Review: Red Carpet Stunners to Red Carpet Bummers

Nicole Kidman
It never fails, where the red carpet is concerned, that some celebrities will shine as bright as stars (because they are) and stun us with their inner fashionista. While others, will fail miserably and fall into the realm of the red carpet bummer.


A definite stunner was Scarlett Johansson at the London premiere of the movie 'The Spirit,' held on December 4th. The young starlet opted for a vintage inspired dress with beautiful pink florals. Her satin pink shoes, with orange rosettes, add an extra touch of girlyness, which she pulls off so well.
