dc meets thomas

I’m doubly amused about this because Thomas the Tank Engine is featured in an add for Marvel’s Ant-Man at the moment, but this SDCC Exclusive Thomas & Friends Super Friends Minis DC mashup set is wild.

I dunno, what do you think?

man of steel color

The color in Man of Steel was altered to give it a grittier, darker, vibe that was in line with the successful Dark Knight trilogy. VideoLab restored the natural colors and the result is like a whole different movie.

See the comparison after the break. We think it looks better “in color”, but which version do you prefer?

Ah! The new Batmobile! It has guns! And tires! And it’s sleek like a dolphin riding a motorcycle or… a Lamborghini wearing a cape! Okay, I’m not making any sense.

I’m just really excited about this sneak peak video from JoBlo Movie Trailers that gives us a closer look at the new Batmobile from the upcoming Batman v Superman flick.

batman-vs-superman

YouTuber Bobby Burns recreated the trailer for Batman V. Superman using old footage from the days of Adam West and Christopher Reeve. The audio from the actual trailer is spliced into classic scenes from the old Superman movies and it fits the dark tone really well. Then in comes goofy Batman and Robin prancing around and I just lost it.

Watch the funny and clever parody after the break.

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.

Hit the break to see the rest of the posters.

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.
