Jennifer Lopez is asking for a “glow check” on her latest bikinigram, but let’s be real, she’s the queen of glow — practically invented it! The Marry Me actress recently shared a photo from a trip to the beach, where she soaked up the lingering summer sun. “Feeling golden. ✨ ” she wrote in the caption. “Holding on to the last few moments of summer.” Aren’t we all?
Oh, what it would be like to get a glimpse of Jennifer’s swimsuit collection! We know she has an array of one- and two-pieces to choose from, but we’re especially into this pink pick. She paired the bold string bikini with oversized gold hoops and matching rings. Always chic, that Jennifer! Get a closer glimpse of her seaside outfit below, and shop similar two-pieces for yourself.
We’ve seen a lot in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We’ve seen lots of wild wigs, a talking tree, gods get punched, Paul Rudd as a teeny superhero, Paul Rudd as a big superhero, and just Thor: Ragnarok from beginning to end. We’ve seen plenty of good, plenty of great—and now we’ve seen quite possibly the greatest thing of all thanks to the first trailer for WandaVision: Kathryn Hahn in the MCU.
We knew this moment was coming since Hahn was brought onstage during the Marvel panel at D23 last August, and honestly we should’ve known it was going to be great because Hahn cannot be anything less than great. Whether she’s being hilariously aloof and snarky on Parks and Recreation or really real on Transparent or being upsettingly real on the gut-wrenching HBO mini-series I Know This Much Is True, Kathryn Hahn can do it all. But it turns out that she’s going to somehow be even better than we expected—and she’s totally gonna upstage her superhero costars.
Hahn pops up three times in the trailer and I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that they are the three best moments. The series stars the Avengers Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany) as a star-crossed and reality-warped couple whose entire reality has become entangled in, uh, sitcom history? There are visual cues that reference everything from The Dick Van Dyke Show and Bewitched to Family Ties and The Brady Bunch, and Kathryn Hahn is at home in all of them.
We first see a flash of her in the ’60s segment, giddily saying “Oh this is going to be a gas!” All we know so far is that Hahn’s character is the “nosy neighbor” type, and she’s giving real Gladys Kravitz/Millie Helper vibes in that one moment. Then a montage cycles through the decades and we get a flash of the greatest moment in the MCU.
Can a single image redeem all of 2020? No, but if any image is gonna come close, it’s one of Kathryn Hahn in full-on ’80s aerobics eleganza.
But the most telling moment comes in a scene that was only included in the full, online trailer. It’s one of the very few scenes from the trailer that isn’t set in TV land, but rather what we can only presume is the show’s real reality. Vision stops Hahn’s character in her car, while she’s dressed like a spooky Halloween witch complete with green-ish hair. She looks at him: “Am I dead?” And Vision’s like, “Wut?” and then she’s like “—because you are” and then she does a total witch’s cackle and it is a moment.
This is also important because it’s the first time that any of the conversation around WandaVision has acknowledged the fact that Vision is, y’know, dead. He was killed in Avengers: Infinity War, his body left a lifeless, gray husk in the forest of Wakanda after the battle with Thanos. So… what’s up? This is our first indication that we’re gonna find out what’s up in WandaVision, and it looks like Kathryn Hahn may just play an important part in that. Yes, please.
Hahn has proven time and time again to be one of the most versatile actors working today. Having her in a Marvel anything is a dream come true, but having her in WandaVision? A show that looks like it’s going to jump from genre to genre and tone to tone? A role that looks like it’s going to let Hahn cut loose harder than she ever has before? We need it, we need it now.
Kathryn Hahn having a big role in a Marvel TV show? Y’know what—that might just be the best Marvel thing of all 2020, if not the entire decade to come.
On paper, Catwoman seemed like it could have been a big success. Not only was it one of Halle Berry’s first post-Oscar gigs, but she already had a proven track record of mastering the art of the comic book movie, thanks to the success of the X-Men franchise. But when it hit theaters in 2004, the response was anything but positive, as its Rotten Tomatoes score can attest. Despite a big budget, it failed to make much of an impression at the box office, too, pulling in less than $100 million worldwide.

I have been reading comics since I was eleven – over a quarter-century! I love them as an art form as well as the characters, and want to see them continue to grow as a respectable medium. One time I was bitten by a radioactive bat, but nothing much happened except I had a weird rash for a few days.
