'Space Jam 2' Is Blasting Off with Lebron James and Director Justin Lin


Our long national nightmare is almost over as 'Space Jam 2' will finally delight a new generation of basketball and cartoon fans as Lebron James and director Justin Lin join forces. 

After years of rumors of a sequel to the 1996 live action/animated hit things started to look promising when James and his company SpringHill Entertainment signed a deal with Warner Bros. in July. James, who plays for the NBA's Cleveland Cavaliers, is of the same magnitude as Michael Jordan was when he starred in the original but not as universally beloved. James showed some comedy acting chops recently in Amy Schumer's Trainwreck where he had a supporting role. 

The original featured Jordan and other NBA stars of the time who were recruited by Bugs Bunny and the Looney Tunes gang to play a crucial basketball game to save their freedom from aliens. The Monstars faced off against the Tune Squad in an entertaining mix of animation and live action that's become a cult classic. 

Lin, who's made a good living at making sequels, is writing the script with Andrew Dodge and Alfredo Botello. With four of the Fast & Furious films, chapters 3-6, under his belt and just finished Star Trek Beyond (hitting theaters on July 22, 2016), Lin is ready to give Bugs Bunny the comeback he deserves.

WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh. Macool looks like she stepped out of the pages of a Wonder Woman comic with a suit …

PREVIEW: 'Barbarella' #9 by Mike Carey and Kenan Yarar

Barbarella has been lied to. Worse, she’s been weaponized, and someone’s going to answer for that, for sure. (Well, assuming she survives the judgment of the Esseverine sun-giants, and an armada of a thousand ships...)
