The Avengers' own Scarlett Johansson and Mark Ruffalo celebrate their birthdays today!


Two of Earth's Mightiest Heroes from the big screen celebrate their birthdays today, and they happen to be the actors who portray the femme fatale spy and Green Goliath of the Avengers respectively!

Born in November 22nd, 1984, the beautiful and talented Scarlett Johansson, who portrays Black Widow, turns 30 years old, while her Avengers co-star and Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo turns 47! Both characters are set  to return alongside Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, and Jeremy Renner for Avengers: Age of Ultron next year, and they will certainly be more action to come in the Marvel Studios film sequel that's once again directed by Joss Whedon!

It's a wonder and coincidence that these two share the same birthday! Perhaps that's why hints of chemistry and possible on-screen romance are blooming for the Avengers sequel between these two? We'll just have to wait and see come May 1, 2015!

As a fellow celebrant this day, let's wish Scarlett Johansson and Mark Ruffalo a Happy Happy Birthday!

Batman: Arkham City has a new "Calendar Man" Easter Egg discovered


Over three years have passed, and Batman: Arkham City remains one of most memorable if not THE BEST Batman game ever created. Developer Rocksteady Studios broke new ground with their 2011 sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum, and allowed players to truly immerse themselves in Batman's world as he explored and interacted with a cornered off portion of Gotham City that became the new correctional facility for the criminally insane, which was headed and overseen by the manipulative Doctor Hugo Strange.



Now, it seems that more surprises still come from this critically acclaimed title, as a fan has discovered a BRAND NEW EASTER EGG that is associated with the date and holiday obsessed villain known as Julian Day, aka the "Calendar Man". Players could visit his cell during the midst of playing Arkham City, and if timed with a corresponding holiday in the calendar, he would tell one of his "grim stories" to The Dark Knight associated with the date itself.

Behold, via the official Batman Arkham Facebook page Calendar Man's new "Secret Message", and learn how the people who found it discover that it ties to, strangely enough, Rocksteady itself!

Batman: Arkham City New Easter Egg - Calendar Man's Secret Message

Batman: Arkham City is currently available for the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC, and Mac OSX!
