Ben Affleck as Batman
Batman is celebrating his 75th birthday at this year's Comic Con, and to honor the Caped Crusader, Warner Bros. unveiled a new photo of Ben Affleck wearing the hero's famed cowl at the annual pop culture event.

While Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is still nearly two years away, it's a good bet that DC Comics will be using the occasion to steal a little thunder from rival Marvel Comics, which will be trotting out several superhero films between now and then, beginning with this summer's Guardians of the Galaxy, which opens August 1 and will be the studio's main focus at Comic Con.

Weird Al Yankovic still can't believe that his latest album, "Mandatory Fun," has debuted at number-one on the Billboard 200 chart.

"I didn't think [a number-one album] was an option for me," he told TIME magazine. "I thought there was a glass ceiling for comedy albums. The last time a comedy album topped the Billboard charts was over half a century ago."

That album was Allan Sherman's "My Son, the Nut" in 1963.

Last week Yankovic told National Publi...
