Stan Lee and the geniuses at the BBC have teamed up to make a kid’s version of Who Wants To Be A Superhero? On the program, children aged 9 to 13 create superhero personas and break down into tears when the judges harshly pulverize their hopes. I know what you’re thinking. It sounds awesome. We haven’t seen the show ourselves because we don’t speak British but we have provided a handy episode guide after the jump. The show seems really severe.

7 MOVIES WATCHMEN WILL DESTROY

Friday, March 6 by

The day for which many have been waiting is finally upon us. After a very public legal battle and gazillions of marketing dollars spent, fans everywhere can breathe a sigh of relief. Today Zach Snyder’s adaptation of Watchmen opens in theaters. It’s expected to dominate the box office for the foreseeable future. How can the other studios compete? They can’t. That’s why they’re releasing the worst films on their rosters in hopes of getting them in and out of theaters quickly and quietly. After the jump are the movies that will be trounced at this weekend’s box office. I’m not sure why anyone in his or her right mind would ever produce these in the first place or want to see them.
