While I am certain - not - that most of you were either partying at Coachella or gettin' down to the MTV Movie Awards, many of your fellow readers were scaring up the usual mess o' stories that we didn't have room for last week. Compiled from the weekend thread with the help of Kyle LeClair, here are your weekend highlights of hilariousness.

I watched Bronies on Netflix, and while it's a decent introduction to the fandom, it isn't much cinematically. A Brony Tale, which begins with voice actress Ashleigh Ball sounding extremely skeptical about the whole thing, looks like it has more potential.
There's always one guy in the crowd with the scary mask of a horse, of course (of course!).More >>
Don't worry, it's not just one big Brony joke - Tina and Louise are the "Equestra-con" enthusiasts, while Gene merely doesn't want to be left out.
Now, Fox, you need to do an actual Equestranauts episode, a la Terrance and Phillip's "Not Without My Anus." Because I suspect you realize you could merchandise the hell out of it.More >>
It's an oft-voiced fanboy fantasy to have a Batman movie set in the '30s, done Bob Kane-style, but given the box office track record of '30s-era superhero movies like The Phantom and The Shadow, it's probably a pipedream in live-action.
But in animation? Your wish has just been granted by the man you'd most expect. Enjoy.More >>
When DC Collectibles revealed the Batman from their new Dini-Timm animated action figure line, I know some of you were suspicious that it wouldn't be very articulated. The computer model for the next figure, above, should put those worries to rest. Mr. Freeze comes with spider legs, so even though they haven't said for sure that his head is removable, it seems likely. He'll be available in November, just in time for appropriately chilly weather - and it appears that his condition has left him cold to your wallet's plea for mercy.

I'm not a marketing guy, but I would have had these out in January. Every single aspect of this movie's promotion has been leading from behind, focusing on shutting down leaks rather than preempting them by giving us something, anything, to indicate that this is not some detrimentally wild departure from source material.
These handy posters are cool - but in many ways pointless once we've already seen the full Turtles and their hideous nostrils. What say you - finger flickin' good, or thumbs down?More >>
Our name for it is better.
Well, I for one was too busy planning a WrestleMania party all weekend to see what other fun things were going on in the world, but if, like me, you missed out, here are some highlights of this weekend's reader-submitted items, compiled with the help of Kyle LeClair.

Check in Sunday to see if I decide to liveblog it. It's like six hours long if you count the preshow, so I don't know if I'm up to the whole thing. But if I am it'll be here.
A few last-minute items before the big weekend:
-Bruce Timm is doing a new Batman short. Now that's the goddamn Batman.
-The Michael Bay Ninja Turtles look a lot better in Lego.
-Twin Peaks Twitter fanfic.
-Amazon's game box, to compete with...what exactly?
-Riding in Cars With Zombies, the game.
-Axel Braun's new Captain America porno patriotically comes out on tax day.
-Kids today. You're getting a video game to help brush your teeth properly? In my day we just had stupid-ass tablets that dyed your teeth red until you got it all off.
-Possibly an April Fool, but here's a robot kangaroo:
If anyone in the LA area wants to see WrestleMania on Sunday, hit me up. Holla.
