A WORD FROM STEVE...
Welcome back! How was your week? We're back for another week of hot women, the biggest Hollywood news, and some celebrity gossip! For some additional reading you can check out my Comics 411. This week we talked about the GREATEST CAPTAIN AMERICA STORIES! Or you can check out my Big Screen Bulletin for more movie related news and thoughts!

What did you think of The Walking Dead Season 4? What was your reaction to the finale? What's in store for the gang in Season 5? I got the 411mania crew together to answer these questions and more here!
Have you seen the new Captain America movie? Did it leave you wanting more? Look no more as Captain America XXX: An Axel Braun Parody is available online at vivid.com and will be in stores nationwide on April 15.
Legendary director Axel Braun and adult powerhouse Vivid Entertainment have brought plenty of joy to adult entertainment fans with their best-selling superhero parodies, and now they're tackling the quintessential American hero: Captain America! Braun wrote an original screenplay for Captain America XXX, in which Cap fights for the Cosmic Cube against Baron Zemo, Sin, Crossbones and Batroc, with the help of Sharon Carter, Diamondback, Falcon and Quicksilver. The result is an epic sexy spoof that once again has better costumes, more geek cred, and definitely bigger boobs than the original.
"It's almost too much awesome in one movie," said Braun, who recently won his fourth consecutive AVN award for Director of the Year. "Call me nostalgic, but I like to see my superheroes in their classic costumes, especially if they've never been portrayed in a live-action movie…and in my adult spoof I was able to really go all out, so I'm one happy fanboy!"
Aaron Wilcoxxx plays Captain America, Phoenix Marie reprises her Avengers XXX role as Sharon Carter, Claire Robbins is Sin, Kleio Valentien is Diamondback, Jessica Ryan is Hellcat, Britney Amber is a hot USO Girl, Ryan Driller is Baron Zemo, Tyler Knight is Falcon, Bill Bailey is Quicksilver, Derrick Pierce is Crossbones, and Giovanni Francesco, who previously played Batman in Braun's highly successful The Dark Knight XXX, steals every scene he's in as the mustached French villain Batroc!
OK, who's greeting us this week? None other than Kristina Shannon! Well, really it's a close-up of the underside of Kristina's boobs in a yellow bikini from Instagram. Details.
Last week Sophia Bush took on Katie Cassidy. Here are the results:
Sophia Bush 58.51%
Katie Cassidy 41.49%
Interesting results. I checked in the voting early on and Sophia was in a commanding lead. Then Katie started a slow and steady gain. She didn't overtake Sophia at any point but she made a strong showing for herself.
Miranda Kerr revealed she is open to explore her bisexuality following her split from husband Orlando Bloom. She told GQ, "I appreciate both men and women. I love the female body and truly appreciate the female form. I want to explore. Never say never."
One celeb who'd be in agreement with Miranda is actress Cameron Diaz, who last week confessed last week she thought "all women have been sexually attracted to another woman at some point".
That sounds like a VS match up to me! I'm fully expecting Kerr to roll over Diaz but stranger things have happened.
Miranda Kerr VS Cameron Diaz
PIC OF THE WEEK!
Nudity isn't rare on Game Of Thrones. But when Natalie Dormer's topless photo shoot for GQ hit the internet, it made some waves.
The actress traded in the auburn locks she rocks as Lady Margaery on the HBO series in favor of a punk rock blond bob with a half-shaved head. A look Dormer adopted for her upcoming role as Cressida in the final two chapters of the Hunger Games series. "I love going out of my comfort zone -- I live to go out of my comfort zone," she told GQ.
WHAT THE HELL?
Digital Spy reports that Lindsay Lohan has claimed that she was nearly cast in The Avengers.
Let that sink in.
She makes the claim in the latest episode of her OWN documentary series, Lindsay. Lohan reportedly blamed her manager for not pushing her hard enough when auditioning for the part, and she said she lost out on the apparent role to an "unknown" actress. The part and unknown actress were not named.
Do I need to write a diatribe about how bad this is? Does Lohan honestly believe she ever had a serious chance at appearing in The Avengers? The only role I could think of her auditioning for is Agent Maria Hill played by Cobie Smulders.

As part of the promotions for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Marvel invited Bloomberg up to their head office. Here's what came from that.
According to Kevin Feige, the Marvel plan now runs to 2028.
Things can change, especially if they start producing movies that don't make the profit they're looking for. But this is pretty impressive that they are putting this much thought and planning into their movie universe.
*Looks at DC Entertainment*
The Bloomberg reporter also quotes Disney's Robert Iger in saying that the studio consider spin-off movies for Star Lord, Drax, Gamora, Rocket and Groot to be real possibilities.
Also, production continues on the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron in Seoul, South Korea. News outlets in the area have released videos featuring a stunt by Chris Evans' stunt double.
Is the Marvel takeover complete?
Franco'd! James Franco appeared on Live! With Kelly and Michael Friday, and addressed the allegations that he tried to initiate a hotel hookup with 17-year-old Scottish student Lucy Clode, who met him at his Broadway show Of Mice and Men in New York City.
Photos and screencaps of their alleged conversation exploded on the Internet Wednesday, with Franco allegedly asking Clode if she had a boyfriend, and apparently sending her a picture of himself holding up a sign with her name on it, to prove that it was really him.
He addressed the scandal head-on Friday, not wanting his appearance to be "awkward."
"I didn't want to come on the show and just … feel awkward. I mean, I guess, you know, I'm embarrassed, and I guess I'm just a model of how, you know, how social media is tricky," the actor said. "It's a way people meet each other today. But, what I've learned I guess just because I'm new to it is like, you don't know who's on the other end. You meet somebody in person and you get a feel for them but you don't know who you're talking to, and, you know? So I used bad judgment. I learned my lesson."
"But unfortunately in my position, I mean...I have a very good life, but not only do I have to go through the embarrassing kind of rituals of kind of meeting someone, sometimes if I do that, then it gets, you know, published for the world so now, you know, it's like doubly embarrassing," he added.
Kelly Ripa let Franco off the hook saying, "Well I think the way you came out here and handled it is perfectly acceptable. It happens to everybody," she said. "And I think it happens to movie stars on a much grander scale, like you just said, because everybody knows who you are."
Some are saying the whole thing is a hoax to promote the actor's new film Palo Alto, in which he plays a teacher seducing a student.
What do you think of Franco?
So long Dave!!
With the announcement that David Letterman will be retiring after 32 years as a late night talk show host, I wanted to jump on the bandwagon and post some Letterman highlights
I'm letting the late, great Larry "Bud" Melman kick it off!
Thanks for the memories, Dave!.
Remember when Nigella Lawson ran VS back in the day? You guys couldn't get enough! Looks like she's made a turn. Lawson was stopped from flying to the US four months after she confessed to taking cocaine. The TV cook was barred from boarding a flight from Heathrow to Los Angeles after the trial of two personal assistants employed by Lawson and her ex-husband Charles Saatchi. Nigella, the self-styled "domestic goddess", admitted taking the class-A drug. Lawson told jurors that she took cocaine with her late husband, John Diamond, when he found out he had terminal cancer and in 2010 when she claimed she was being "subjected to intimate terrorism" by Saatchi.
A witness told the Daily Mail that Lawson attempted to board a British Airways flight from London on Sunday morning but was turned away. "She didn't seem to say much but she did not look happy," the onlooker said. "She could not get on the flight so she had to turn around and leave."
While Lawson has not been convicted for any drug offence, it appears that US officials have still decided to deny her entrance to the country. The US department of homeland security told the Mail that foreigners who had admitted drug taking were deemed "inadmissible". However, Lawson has visited America since the court appearance. She appeared on Good Morning America to promote her show, The Taste.
The good ole days!
