One of the cutest moments in the Logan trailer released today (an aside: mentioning "cute" and Logan in the same sentence is very strange to me) is the moment Wolverine flicks through an X-Men comic, noting just how wildly embellished they are. The comics used aren't actual X-Men books — but now we know who made them for the movie.

Video: Yes, we do live in the strange world where there is an actual chance Deadpool could nab itself an Oscar nomination for Best Picture. So what better way for the movie to pitch itself to the academy than by wheeling out its laser-guided marketing campaign once more?
The lid is being lifted on Marvel and Netflix's four-way crossover series The Defenders. We have our first look at Sigourney Weaver's villain, and a few intriguing details about what will bring Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage together... and it might have something to do with Daredevil season two's hilarious giant hole.
It used to be — back when the easiest superhero joke was to make fun of Adam West's Batman — that everyone fretted over making more realistic superheroes. OK, I say "used to", but we all know that the fear of making something campy has never, ever left most studios' psyches. FX's Legion, however, isn't interested in avoiding capes and camp. It's interested in avoiding violence as the only ending.
Sure, a version of "Deadpool" and Hugh Jackman's Wolverine have already teamed up, thanks to the excruciating X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but wouldn't it be amazing if Ryan Reynold's wittily maniacal mercenary could join forces with Hugh Jackman's Logan? Well, Reynolds agrees — and he's actively trying to get Jackman to do so, too.
Video: Disney's first Iron Man ride won't officially open until early in the new year, but a few lucky riders have already been on it, and they brought back a truly fun video of it in action. It's the next best thing to flying to Hong Kong, getting a hotel, going to the park and waiting in line for several hours.
It has been a frankly amazing year for comics — filled with big events, controversial moments, and an incredible variety of comics, with diversity in genre, characters, and stories giving us shelf upon shelf of amazing books to dig into week after week. It was hard to narrow them down to 20, but without further ado, here are our absolute favourite comics from this year.
Companies like Hot Toys are known for their incredibly realistic action figures, but you can only pack so much detail into a toy that's 30cm tall. So a Chinese company called The Toys Asia has taken the concept of an action figure to a whole new level with a life-size, fully-animated version of Iron Man's armour.
We all have a friend who collects vinyl. At first, you may have judged them for their perceived "hipster nonsense", but I'll bet you've come around. I see you spying on new record players, figuring out how to get started. And that artwork. It's stunning, and honestly a reason all on its own to invest in the hobby. You know this.
But what better way to avoid having to admit you've fallen head first into the retro trap than to gift those awesome looking (and sounding) albums you've found online to a loved one? If you need some inspiration, here's a list of our favourite six released in 2016.
It shouldn't come as a huge surprise that James Gunn writes everything down before he shoots it — the guy has a seemingly endless reservoir of information about the way he filmed things, what music fits where and storyboards. But now he's shared a bit from the packet he gave Marvel when he was trying to get the Guardians of the Galaxy directing gig.
We now have not just one, but two trailers for Spider-Man: Homecoming. As usual, we've put deerstalkers on our comically nerdy brains and picked through the trailer for anything we could find. In this case, we put the two side-by-side and managed to discover some very interesting things.
Video: The first international trailer has arrived, and it's much better than the US one! There's a lot less high school and a lot more Spider-Man in there, plus more villains (including the Shocker), more action, better music — it actually has a lot of the same footage, but it's edited in such a way to make Homecoming look like a much more exciting movie. Look, watch them both, and you'll see what I mean.
