Here's a daily dose of what's heating up the internet:

When the Boys Are Away..
While Chris Pratt was away filming another movie or pretending to sleep with JLaw, wife and hilarious actress Anna Faris recruited Jenna Dewan Tatum for the latest episode of her podcast, Unqualified. The Step Up starlet (and other half to Channing Tatum) has quite the dance background, so the two took to Instagram to show just what it meant to show off some sex appeal. With some added vocals by Whitney Houston, the two whipped their hair and arched their back, as only friends would. We can't think of a better way to start off our Tuesday. 

Good News for Gal Gadot
When Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25th, it'll be the very first iteration of Wonder Woman to take form on the big screen. Gal Gadot, the Israeli actress taking on the big role, stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to explain just how she found out about it, saying a lot of her audition was hidden in secrecy. "Zack [Snyder] calls me, saying, ‘Well, I’m not sure if you have it in Israel but did you ever hear of Wonder Woman?’ Then I went dead for five seconds, came back to life, and tried to pull off my coolest voice, saying ‘Wonder Woman? Yeah, yeah, I’ve heard of her,” she told the daytime host. Gadot's eventual casting not only secured her a spot in BVS, but launched her into the DC universe with a solo film, as well as a central role in the upcoming Justice League film. Can you think of anyone more perfect than this gorgeous 'Gal' for the part?

BVS Becomes a Lighthearted Rom-Com
It was just two weeks ago that Maxim favorite Anna Kendrick tweeted out: What are the chances I make it through #BatmanvSuperman without blurting. "You guys should kiss though." Wired seemed to have the same thoughts too, as they re-edited promotional footage with a sappy new soundtrack to turn what should be an epic superhero battle into an awkward, and extremely unconventional love triangle. Appropriately titled 'Batman Meets Superman: Dawn of Just Us,' the rom-com parody focuses on Clark Kent's budding relationship with millionaire Bruce Wayne before the arrival of third party, Diana Prince. While this version is not as believable as Zack Snyder's original script, it's definitely laughable to think how easy it is to shift things in a more romantic direction.
