I’ve been meaning to post some of Marcio Takara’s works here, but got behind (as usual).Â If you want some awesome images of Marvel and DC characters, Marcio has you covered.Â Check out his take on Phoenix.
it was meant to be something else… but I decided to use it to draw a Marvel character again. I was between Ms Marvel, Scarlett Witch and Phoenix
Just Some Random Guy has posted his latest work featuring the action figures from the Marvel Universe promoting the New York City Comic Con.
Why no DC Characters?Â DC said no to using its figures.Â Killjoys.
Random Note From Random Guy: No, we’re not changing our Spider-Man action figure. We’re just complying with Marvel’s request that we not use Spider-Man action figures from the movies in these NYCC videos.
Oh boy, did we get a lot of people entering the second annual Major Spoilers Costume Contest.Â There were over 50 entries from 20 entrants (yes, some people entered multiple times).Â Personally, I think all those who entered the contest deserve kudos for taking the time to make their costume and sending it out for the world to see.Â You can tell some of the entrants spent a great deal of time on their costumes, and really get into their work.
Without further ado, take the jump to see all the entrants for this year’s contest.
According to an interview at the Wall Street Journal, the Superman franchise is going to get a complete reboot ala Ang Lee’s Hulk movie.Â But this time Warner Bros. is actually taking something away from the big summit it had with DC and some of its creators and the recent success Marvel has had with its properties.
According to the interview with Jeff Robinov, Warner Bros. plans on releasing at least two tent-pole films a year based on DC characters.
In lieu of the fact that I may not have been the only one to miss the release of Batman Confidential #19, Iâ€™ve decided, in the face of the release of issue #20, to review both. I wonâ€™t do it at the same time, because that would take away from the fact that these are two really great issues, and deserved of their own time in the sun.
It’s being reported that Warner Bros. is in close talks with DC Comics and some of its creators on the direction the movie adaptations of DC characters should take.
“While we are not going to go into the specifics of the meetings, we’re constantly looking at how best to exploit the DC Comics characters and properties. DC is an incredibly valuable asset to Warner Bros. and plays an important role across the entire studio by providing development and franchise opportunities for all media, including films, television, home entertainment, animation, consumer products, video games and digital platforms.”
The success of Iron Man from Marvel and the less than stellar performance from Superman Returns appears to have finally gotten the company to stop mucking around with franchises that could net them billions of dollars if handled correctly. Batman and Robin anyone?
Even though DC Comics brings in a nice chunk of change to Warner Bros. bottom line, it is nothing more than a drop in the bucket. So I’m really hopeful Warner execs listen to DC instead of forcing DC to conform to some wild hair idea of a screenwriter looking to make a name for himself.
What could this mean in the long run?Â For one, it could mean a delay in the release of new DC based movies as the studios retool to combat the success of the House of Ideas, and perhaps – just perhaps, Warner will finally get that Justice League movie off the ground.
Of course the success of The Dark Knight in a few weeks could have the Warner execs thinking they know what is best, thus screwing up all talks.
Three weeks in, and readers have been subjected to strange dreams, mystical attacks, and an attack from outer space.Â When a space convict lands on the planet and starts wrecking havoc, who do you call?Â The Trinity?Â Youâ€™d be surprised how many times they appear in this installment.
