Gamora is a kick-ass character and this concept art from Guardians of the Galaxy shows her looking even more fierce than the version we saw on the big screen. Artist Andy Park tweeted some of the concept art that he did for both Gamora and Nebula and it shows the much darker characters that didn’t make the final cut (maybe they should have).

You can say what you like about how the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles looked in the movie this summer, but just be thankful that we didn’t get anything resembling these guys. According to CBM, this pitch artwork by Anthony Francisco (who recently did some great work on Guardians Of The Galaxy and G.I. Joe: Retaliation) represents a much more alien version of the Turtles which would undoubtedly have made fans mob theaters with torches and pitchforks.

Thankfully, the designs only went as far as a meeting with the producers.

These beautiful fan made posters created by AndrewSS7 for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII are absolutely beautiful. He’s included iconic images from the universe like the Millennium Falcon, the Death Star, and a Star Destroyer, and imagined them after the credits rolled on Return of the Jedi. These might not be the real thing, but they are sure to get you excited about the possibilities.

Superman Lives was a movie conceived of by Tim Burton and Nic Cage that never actually made it into production. That doesn’t mean everyone isn’t a tad curious as to what it would have looked like, and there’s a documentary in the works to answer all your questions. The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? by Jon Schnepp will give a behind-the-scenes at the film that never was, including interviews with those involved and clips of Nic Cage as Superman.

We’ve already seen one trailer, but now they’ve released a second in hopes of getting financial backing to finish the documentary. You can make a donation at Fan Backed if you want to see the full story behind what would likely have been a crazy film.

What you’re looking at is a sneak-peak of Paul Rudd as Ant-Man’s Scott Lang. He looks a little worse for wear and he’s not a superhero yet, but this picture is enough to get me stoked for the upcoming film. The image was picked up by USA Today, and as you can tell by the background, the film is being shot in San Francisco.

up explosion

If there’s one thing Michael Bay is known for, it’s explosions. He fits more explosions into 5-minutes of film than should rightly be in an entire movie, but his movies are blockbusters so you have to give the guy some credit. But what you don’t want to do is give him a Pixar film like Up. YouTube user MrStratman7 has given a go at imagining what it would have been like if Bay had helmed Up and the results are, interesting.

gem

No mere human is capable of managing the awesome power of an Infinity Gem, unless your name is James Gunn. He now has one of his very own courtesy of Marvel who sent the gem to the director of Guardians of the Galaxy for his birthday. He celebrated his 44th birthday on August 5th, and hopefully isn’t planning on using it for world domination.
