While DC and Warner Bros. wring their hands about the sheer impossibility of making a Justice League movie, fan Daniel Brown cut through all the bullshit and decided to show DC how it’s done. Specifically, it’s done like this — with a trailer which is better than every non-Nolan-involved DC movie that WB has put out over the last decade (and with special effects at least on par with Green Lantern, tragically). Seriously, guys, just put Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman in a movie together and have them beat something up. It’s not rocket science, okay?
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
