“We all know Batman is hungry for justice, but justice rarely delivers. So Little Caesars and Warner Bros. have collaborated on something more tangible to snack on. Meet the Batman Calzony, a pizza-calzone hybrid that now comes in the shape of a Bat. Yes, Little Caesars, the pizza of choice when you’re too stoned to use the Domino’s app, is combining the delicious powers of melted cheese, pepperoni, garlic white sauce, and a side of Crazy Sauce to bring you this greasy homage to the Caped Crusader.

During an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Gaga says that when she was on set for filming, she never truly met co-star Jared Leto. Instead, she only met his prosthetic-heavy version of Paolo Gucci. Not only that, but Leto never actually met her either. He only ever interacted with the Gaga-fied version of Patrizia Reggiani. It’s called acting.”

“It’s common for roles to be recast in Hollywood, but few cases are as infamous as the one that impacted Back to the Future (1985). Before Michael J. Fox accepted the part that made him a household name, Eric Stoltz took a crack at playing Marty McFly.
