In this awesome video, redditor FizzyGizmo duct-taped a Superman action figure to his Phantom 3 drone and flew it over Victoria Park in London. The camera on the drone is attached to a gimbal which stabilizes the footage so it looks like Superman is smoothly flying around, keeping an eye on the city. Well done.

Batman v Superman looks like it’s going to be a very somber movie. YouTuber Albert Lopez has made it a heck of a lot lighter by setting the trailer to the song Dayman from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. We don’t know if this is the superhero movie we need, but it is the one we want.

The newest LEGO Group SDCC Exclusive has been revealed and it’s something unique that collectors will undoubtedly be clamoring for.

The LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Action Comics #1 Superman set will retail for $39.99, but make sure you read up on the changes they’ve made to their retail exclusives policy for the con. You have to win a drawing in order to purchase their SDCC sets this year. That might make it more difficult for people to buy up sets just to sell them on eBay.

Check out more pics and the updated policy after the break.

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?
