superhero inspirational poster 1

Superheroes keep rather busy with the day to day schedule of fighting criminals and stopping nefarious plans. It’s probably hard to stay motivated. Artist Adam Thompson reminds us and them of why being a hero is the best path with his “Heroic Words of Wisdom” series. Each poster features the silhouette of a DC Comics superhero and an inspirational quote from him or her.

Thompson explains on Behance:

My work, centered around comic book characters, comes with the challenge of reaching to an audience beyond those who are already fans of those characters. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy very much to see existing fans of these characters who enjoy my work. However, up until this project, I’ve been indulgent of being a fan, and neglectful of the challenge of reaching that larger audience.

Superheroes already have a prominent place in pop culture. Their images can be seen anywhere. As a fan I enjoy seeing the strength of these characters in the spotlight, but because I am looking to reach a new audience, I needed to find a new light. I had to consider that comic books are a series of images accompanied by dialogue, and since it’s the images that are already so prominent, I decided to focus on the dialogue.

These are the kind of motivational posters I’d put on my wall.

batman vs. superman lego

Batman and Superman will coming to the big screen together in 2016, but that’s awfully far in the future. Luckily, you don’t have to wait to see a fan made take on the DC Comics duo. BrickFlix posted a black and white LEGO video featuring Batman fighting Superman in a battle to the death. Yes, you read that right. This LEGO short isn’t one for children to watch.

Watch the twisted video after the break.

new 52 superman and batman

The new Medicom Real Action Heroes New 52 Batman and Superman figures definitely look good. They stand 12′ tall with standard RAH articulation and cloth capes. I really like the details in the sculpts.

They’re currently estimated to arrive sometime in August and supply is likely to be fairly limited as they’re imported. So if you want them badly enough, pre-ordering is probably the way to go if you’re willing to drop a ton of money on them.

Head after the break to see more pictures.

dc pens header

I don’t use pens often anymore, but when I do, they have to be just right. I can’t imagine it getting more right than these sexy DC Comics-themed pens by Montegrappa. The fancy superhero and supervillain designs come in ballpoint, rollerball, and fountain varieties. The barrels have bright patterns and colors, and the caps feature mini sculptures of Superman, Green Lantern, Batman, Wonder Woman, Catwoman, Riddler, Penguin, and the Joker. They are not inexpensive by any definition of the word, but they look like they’re of the highest quality.

See individual shots of the beautiful writing tools after the break.

The constant presence of smartphones have helped us see the world in a different way. Many of us are guilty of spending too much time with our heads turned downward looking at our phone, but the device can also inspire us. History professor Francois Dourlen uses his iPhone to insert scenes from movies into real life settings; it’s creative and the effect is amusing. Dourlen explains:

Like many people, I always imagine weird things when I walk in the street, when I work or when I’m home. But I never found a good way to tell what goes through my head.

One day, wanting to make a joke with friends, I replaced a statue of Napoleon in Cherbourg with a picture of my little pony in my phone and took a picture. I had so much fun that I put it on facebook, people immediately liked.

He’s made memorable images with scenes from Lord of the Rings, Thor, Edward Scissorhands, and more. They’re all fantastic.

krypton

It looks like Syfy is taking a page from Fox’s Gotham. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Syfy is working with David S. Goyer to develop Krypton. The series will be a Superman origin story that takes place long before Clark Kent puts on glasses. Goyer and writer Ian Goldberg came up with the following concept:

Krypton takes place years before the Superman legend we know, when the House of El was shamed and ostracized. This drama, which is in development, follows the Man of Steel’s grandfather as he brings hope and equality to Krypton, turning a planet in disarray into one worthy of giving birth to the greatest Super Hero ever known.

As long as the series has more focus than Gotham, I’m interested.

Recent set photos provide evidence that elements of Batman V. Superman are going to look a lot like Frank Miller’s comic The Dark Knight Returns. Minor spoilers ahead.

It all has to do with the murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne. I know you’re thinking “not again!”, but take a look a the photos. The scene seems to be pulled right out of the comic. You can see the Wayne Family is coming out of a showing of The Mark of Zorro before the murders and, is that Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Thomas Wayne?

Check out the set gallery along with a comparison with The Dark Knight Returns after the break…

There were sneak peeks of the Batmobile, and then rumors that it had been stolen, but this time it’s video of the car in action. Not only do we see it during filming as it drives down the street, but it’s chasing bad guys and there’s gunfire, too!

See the videos after the break.

batman supermanmobile

Hey Bat Fans, we’ve got our first good look at new Batmobile from Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice. I have no idea if these are official or someone got sneaky, but they’re from the set.

As some have pointed out, it looks a lot like the Batmobile from Arkham Knight. It sure as hell does.

One thing’s for sure, Zach Snyder’s making a statement with this baby.

Check out the photos after the break and let us know what you think…
