TRAILER: Robin Feels Pretty Salty About Batman In The New ‘Titans’ Series

Published

on

By night, I am the Caped Contributor for PGTW. But by day, I am a mere sidekick to a polarizing, unfathomably talented jack of all trades. And while I love being an assistant to such a great boss, I think it is safe to say that all of us sidekicks dream of the day that we will be the ones making headlines. Well for the iconic Robin of Batman & Robin, that day has finally come.

I am a huge fan of Titans in the DC Comic world. The comic book, much like the new series, follows Robin aka Dick Grayson as he foregoes the mantle of “Robin” and flies solo with the new persona of Nightwing. Nightwing is a confident leader, with a bit more grit and maturity than Robin could ever possess while in the shadows of the Caped Crusader. Nightwing assembles a team of super sidekicks and takes on the evils of the world. The team is not all sidekicks though as DC Comics did a great job of introducing some brand new characters into the fold over the comic book’s tenure. Some of which we will see in the series.

This fall, DC Comics is releasing a streaming service entitled DC Universe and debuted trailers from their highly anticipated, exclusive content today at San Diego’s Comic-Con. From the trailers shown, Titans is definitely getting the most buzz. The trailer shows Robin’s transition into Nightwing as he tries to help the demonically possessed Raven. Other “Titans” making an appearance in the trailer are energy-blasting Starfire, shapeshifting Beast Boy, and the aviary duo Hawk and Dove. While the battle sequences and special effects are enough to spark a conversation, there are two specific moments that have everyones jaw’s on the floor. 1. Robin kills a thug in the trailer, which is unheard of in the world of superheroes. 2. When asked about the whereabouts of Batman he responds with “F*** Batman.” WHAT?!?! See I know I am a good assistant because that has never been my response…yet. What has happened to the peanut butter and jelly of the superhero world?!

The series looks great and is a promising glimpse into what can come out of DC Universe. The series stars Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, Ryan Potter as Beast Boy, Alan Ritchson as Hawk and Minka Kelly as Dove. Titans is expected to stream this fall, but in the meantime check out the trailer below!

AWWW: A Rescue Team Of 9 Was Needed To Rescue 1 Adorably Chubby Rat

Published

on

Over in Bensheim, Germany a rotund rodent got herself into a jam when she tried to squeeze through a hole of a manhole cover only to get stuck…and honestly, I can relate. When I was 8 years old I tried to squeeze my thunder-thighs-in-training into a children’s swing and it took my dad and three other grown men to get me out. I am the German fat-rat!

Volunteer firefighters were called when a young girl noticed the fat rat was stuck and no time was wasted to help the poor critter. Eight firefighters and at least one animal rescuer appeared on the scene to safely extract the chubby critter. Animal rescuer Michael Sehr told BBC “She had a lot of winter flab and was stuck fast at her hip. There was no going forward or back.” When asked why anyone would even want to save something so many are repulsed by Sehr said “Even animals that are hated by many deserve respect.”

Alls well that ends well! Hopefully no authorites will be needed to help me shimmy out of these skinny jeans I thought looked cute this morning…in the meantime, check out the entire rescue below!

Elton John And Taron Egerton Performed A Fantastic Duet Of ‘Tiny Dancer’

Published

on

The dancer may be tiny but the talent on stage was massive! Taron Egerton and Elton John gave a fantastic performance of “Tiny Dancer” last night at the 27th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party.

If you’ve been looking for a reason to toss on your bedazzled cape and brightly colored sunglasses then boy do I have good news for you. An “epic musical fantasy” about Elton John’s life, entitled Rocketman, is expected to hit theaters in May 2019. Taron Egerton, from Robin Hood fame, plays the musical legend and judging by his performance last night, we are all in for a treat. The audience of the charity event felt like a candle in the wind when Taron suggested an off-the-cuff performance of “Tiny Dancer.” There isn’t even a pun creative enough to embody what the audience must have felt when Elton John himself volunteered to accompany Taron on the piano!

In addition to a truly moving performance, the 27th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party raised more than $6.3 million for an effort to end AIDS.

VIRAL: There Is No Room For Love When This Dog Protects His Barney

Published

on

I think this dog missed the whole “I love you, you love me” message Barney was trying to teach all those years ago…

In this viral video posted to Twitter, an adorable pup channels his inner Cujo anytime his owner gets close to the Barney the Dinosaur stuffed animal. While the frenzied attacks are comical in themselves, this video should definitely be played with the sound up. While we never see more than the dog owner’s hand, we hear his high pitched screams of terror every time the dog take a lunge.
