Batgirl Star Leslie Grace Reveals First Look At Her Costume

Despite being introduced into the "Batman" comic book series all the way back in 1967 (technically 1961, but I'm talking Barbara Gordon here), Batgirl is finally making her way into the live-action DC Extended Universe, with Leslie Grace set to play the iconic character in an exclusive film for HBO Max. Not to be confused with Batwoman, the Batgirl character has appeared in multiple animated series and "The Lego Batman Movie," but this is our first bonafide chance to see a live-action Batgirl si...

The Classic Dark Anime That Inspired Darren Aronofsky

The death of Satoshi Kon in 2010 from pancreatic cancer at age 46 robbed the world of the chance to catch up with his artistry. In the early 2000s, anime already had die-hard devotees in America, but the art form started to gain traction outside of that fanbase with Disney's advocacy of Hayao Miyazaki's family-friendly films. Kon's madcap fantasias couldn't be marketed the same way, since they dealt with adult subjects and collapsed Japanese history and film history into each other to surreal ef...

Hottest Ocean Temperatures In History Recorded Last Year

Last year saw the hottest ocean temperatures in recorded history, the sixth consecutive year that this record has been broken, according to new research. The Guardian reports: The heating up of our oceans is being primarily driven by the human-caused climate crisis, scientists say, and represents a starkly simple indicator of global heating. While the atmosphere's temperature is also trending sharply upwards, individual years are less likely to be record-breakers compared with the warming of the...

Hawaii winters and how to notice them

Other than the literal, astronomical, and calendrical start of winter on December 21, it’s hard to say when a “Hawaiian winter” starts. Residents just sort of feel it. Winter is here and it feels a little late. Maybe because it’s a La Nina year, when climate patterns goose ocean surface temperatures and jiggle wind patterns.

Richard Nixon sabotaged a generation of women, but now Congress has another chance - if it can pass Biden's $3.5 trillion spending plan

Richard Nixon vetoed care-economy measures in 1971 after they passed the House and Senate. Getty Joe Biden's American Families Plan featured "care economy" measures that Congress is currently debating. 50 years ago, a similar plan actually passed the House and Senate - before Richard Nixon vetoed it. "The Nixon veto set our country back behind the rest of the world by a generation," says Time's Up Tina Tchen. See more stories on Insider's business page. The American economy has...
