With the holidays quickly approaching, we’re all struggling to get off our butts and get that gift shopping done at a reasonable pace. 

This season, pop culture retailer BoxLunch brings back their ever-popular Marvel Eat The Universe collaboration with a unique holiday-themed merchandise line. 

The lineup includes some pretty marvelous cookware that includes aprons, oven mitts, slow cookers with minimalistic Marvel Superhero designs, and even Iron Man waffle makers.

Non-kitchen apparel with food-themed Marvel superhero designs are also included in the lineup. 

You can check out the collection at BoxLunch.com/EatTheUniverse or BoxLunch stores nationwide. This collaboration should easily check off a few holiday gift ideas for me this year.

A post shared by 횬둉이 (@hhjeeeee) on

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is only a few weeks away and we’ve already got tickets to catch the much-anticipated Marvel feature. The only thing that could make a comic book flick even better are some snacks to munch on while we wait in line. Here’s where Doritos come in.

The snack brand released a limited edition flavor of Supernova Doritos in celebration of the new Guardians movie.

While only available in Australia, these Doritos are definitely worth eBaying if you’re an avid collector of rare flavors. Boasting a bright green color, the Doritos feature a zesty lime flavor buddied up with a kick of black pepper.

You can find them now in the snack food aisles of participating grocery retailers in Australia.

Denny’s Debuts ‘Fantastic Four’ Menu Including This Monstrous THING BURGER

Dennys-Thing-Burger-01

The Fantastic Four remake is a few months away and hype is steadily growing for the comic book blockbuster. As the premiere gets closer, Denny’s has released a series of Fantastic Four-themed menu items in a partnership with 20th Century Fox.

The new items include a Thing Burger (cheese bagel bun, hash browns, eggs, bacon), Human Torch Skillet (sausage, potatoes, peppers) and the Invisible Woman Slam (Grand Slam with fruit-packed pancakes) named after three of the four protagonists of the film. Also on the “Slamtastic 4” menu are the Fantastic Four Fruit Smoothie, the Fantastic Four Cheese Omelette and the Doom Lava Cake.

Looks like Mr. Fantastic isn’t getting anything named after him. That Thing burger (above) is pretty genius, though.

The new menu will be available at participating Denny’s locations June 23. Fantastic Four is set to open in theaters nationwide on August 7.

Disney’s New Animated Short Film ‘Feast’ is Worth the Price of ‘Big Hero 6’ Alone

feast-disney-pixar-short

It’s the story of a dog who loves to eat with an owner who’s equally willing to live and die with the same passion.

If you’re looking for a reason to go see Disney’s new animated feature Big Hero 6 because the current 91% Tomatometer isn’t enough, make that reason the animated short “Feast” they run before the opening credits. As if you needed another reason to see Big Hero 6.

“Feast,” is a new short from first-time director Patrick Osborne and Walt Disney Animation Studios.

To see the flick, we have a trailer below, but you’ll need to get yourself to a movie theatre and do yourself a favor. The short alone is worth the admission price of Big Hero 6.

‘Get Your Claws On’ These New Asian-Style Burgers from Red Robin x The Wolverine

redwolverine1

In case you’ve already forgotten who “Wolverine” is, here’s a quick reminder: he’s probably the only character you didn’t hate in any of the X-Men movies (at least he was until that bloody prequel came out). He’s also played by Hugh Jackman.

redwolverine3

Yeah, that guy.

In promotion for next month’s upcoming movie The Wolverine, Red Robin is launching two new “Asian”-style burgers called the “Beserker” and the “Kuzuri Style Tavern Double.” According to Grub Grade, the Beserker features a brioche bun with a sliced top to represent the hero’s iconic claws as well as a fire-grilled burger topped with zesty aioli, spicy pickles, Sriracha onion straws and cheddar cheese. The Kuzuri is a double patty burger with “samurai slaw,” ginger garlic wonton strips and cilantro. Kuzuri means “wolverine” in Japanese.

Finally, from now until June 30, guests can also purchase a $25 limited edition Wolverine gift card at participating restaurants and enter the gift card code at www.redrobin.com/movietix to receive a free movie ticket – while anyone who sees the movie during opening weekend (July 26-28) can get $3 off their Red Robin order the following Monday through Thursday (July 29 – August 1) with movie ticket stub.

Now if only they both came with a pint of Logan Ale.

These Avengers Sugar Cookies are Definitely Earth’s Cutest

avengerscookies

Here’s what you’ve missed since the Avengers movie: Iron Man can’t sleep, Black Widow straightened her hair, the ninth Doctor’s ransacking Asgard and Loki’s settled into his new lot in life as a Russell Brand impersonator. They were also all transformed into a set of adorable and incredibly detailed cookies and are palling around with the guys from Sherlock during its hiatus. Or is that not right?

In any case, resident tumblr cookie nerd Fanfectionary is ringing in the latest batch of Avenger-sequels the best way she knows how: with SWEETS.

She describes her creative process:

I used a cutter for the cookie shape . . . and then did some editing of some edges and angles with a knife. Then I used a food coloring marker to outline the legs and such.”

Oh dearie, you make it sound so easy. Goodness knows anything I try would probably wind up on a list of Pinterest fails.

Check out the pics below to see all her finished cookies, which include Tony Stark, Captain America, Black Widow and my personal favorite, Loki

But of course, that’s coming from a biased and bonafide Hiddlestoner. Speaking of which, is that word supposed to be pronounced “bone-a feed-eh,” because it’s Latin? Inquiring minds want to know.
