Stop it with Avenger movies and Spiderman movies.
Stop it with Captain America and Thor.

This weekend sees the release of the latest cinematic interpretation of the Caped Crusader.
Below is an infographic illustrating the evolution of Batman across 70 years (infographic created by @blairerickson )
Many thanks to Carl Milner for bringing it to my attention.
This photograph was taken in the Museo de la Revolución in Havana, Cuba.
Originally the Presidential Palace until 1959 when it became the Museo de la Revolución after Fidel Castro took control of Havana.
Those bullet holes are evidence of the battle that took place between Castro’s revolutionaries and the Presidential Palace’s previous occupants.
Bullet holes… cool!
Saw this lovely piece of artwork on the side of a building on Newton Street in the Northern Quarter, Manchester.
Not too sure if the Converse logo was added before or after the bird? Doubt they are related.
Middle of April, frost on my windscreen. England… pah!
I’d like to take credit for this ‘lovely’ piece of artwork but the wife did it. Not sure if she ‘hearts’ me or my car…!?
Once there was time when I wouldn’t have anyone say a bad word against the films. Hell, I even used to stand up for the Phantom Menace.
George Lucas’s constant ‘tweaking’ and re-releasing has finally had it’s day with me. Why couldn’t he just leave the originals as they were? Why did he feel the need to go back and digitally enhance every frame – tweaking them to within an inch of their life.
Fine, we get it. The prequels were all filmed digitally. Everything, including the wooden acting, was CGI-digitally enhanced and therefore editable. But did he really need to go back and erase the remaining none-CGI beauty of the originals?
To be honest, even if I did own a Blu-Ray player, I wouldn’t purchase the latest variants.
And to top it off, obviously desperate for the money, George has allowed his once iconic characters to appear in non-related television commercials. There was an appearance of Darth Vader in a Curry’s/PC World television advert at Christmas and recently Yoda has been showing up in Vodafone commercials. This photo is of a huge Yoda appearing on a Vodafone 48 sheet in Piccadilly, Manchester.
Please Lucas, just stop.
Ha! Out of all the 3D perspective pavement artwork kicking around at the moment, this is currently my favourite.
