Hell Yeah the Ant-Man Van Made the Avengers 4: Endgame Trailer

Today we woke up to a new Avengers 4: Endgame trailer and like the rest of you basic nerds, I gobbled it up then immediately watched it again to squint for cool stuff.

Behold The Amazing Malaise-Era Cars on the Set of Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker Movie 

Because we exist in an era when, by the year 2023, 100 percent of all new movies made will be comic book sequels, remakes and reboots, we are getting a possibly R-rated Batman spin-off starring The Joker that’s set in the 1980s, apparently doesn’t have Batman in it, is modeled after a Scorsese mob flick and is titled,…
