The League of Extraordinary Avengers

I came across this fun piece of art and had to share it. It was created by artiest Тхе Мичо and features Marvel's Avengers. The piece certainly has a steampunk / League of Extraordinary Gentleman kind of feel to it and I think it is great! It's odd that the Hulk is not in it but that's okay.

Saxophone tribute to Sonic the Hedgehog! [video]

Sonic the Hedgehog superfan, Xavier Díaz Herrera, has created a fun musical tribute to the original Sonic game by playing the theme on his saxophone. What makes it cooler is that Xavier played four different saxophones (alto, tener, baritone, and soprano saxophone) and all the different harmonys himself in order to complete the song! And just to make it seem more rich and full he added some drums as well. Give the video a chance, the song sounds great! Great job, Xavier!

Once Disney bought Marvel fans expected some crossovers here or there and now we are going to see one in a summer event that shouldn't be missed.

Fantastic new photo of Evangeline Lilly as Tauriel in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug!

A new photo of Evangeline Lilly as the elf Tauriel in the upcoming The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug has just been released by Entertainment Weekly and she looks great! Tauriel is a new character in the story created by Peter Jackson and his screenwriters.  "Tauriel is the head of the Elven Guard,” Lilly explains. “She’s a Sylvan Elf, which means she’s of a much lower order than the elves we all became acquainted with in TheLord of the Rings. She doesn’t hold the same kind of status that Arwen or Galadriel or Elrond or Legolas do — she’s much more lowly. She sort of goes against the social order of the elves a little bit." Though Tauriel is of a lower class than the elves we have come to know and love in Middle Earth, it does not mean that she is not connected to them. "Tauriel’s relationship with Legolas is significant.
