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.

Yeah, losing his security deposit was totally worth it.

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…

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.

Comic

Action Comics #1 was published in June of 1938 and is recognized as the comic book that started it all marking Superman’s debut. It’s highly sought after and costs enough to make Bruce Wayne blanch, but if you have deep pockets, then it could be yours through an auction currently running on eBay.

For sale here is the single most valuable comic book to ever be offered for sale, and is likely to be the only time ever offered for sale during many of our lifetimes. There are no second chances. This is a NO RESERVE auction.

This is THE comic book that started it all. This comic features not only the first appearance of Superman, Clark Kent and Lois Lane, but this comic began the entire superhero genre that has followed during the 76 years since. It is referred to as the Holy Grail of comics and this is the finest graded copy to exist with perfect white pages. This is …. the Mona Lisa of comics and stands alone as the most valuable comic book ever printed.

This particular copy is the nicest that has ever been graded, with an ASTONISHING grade of CGC 9.0 ! To date, no copies have been graded higher and only one other copy has received the same grade. It is fair to say though that this copy blows the other 9.0 out of the water. Compared to the other 9.0 that sold for $2.1million several years ago it has significant superior eye appeal, extremely vibrant colors and PERFECT WHITE PAGES. This means after 76 years the aging process has yet to begin. Truly this book is a museum piece. It is one of only two copies of this comic in ANY condition to ever be graded with the distinction of having White pages, the other being a CGC 2.5!

If you are looking to purchase or invest in comic books this is without exaggeration the single best graded comic book that exists. It is the highest graded copy of the most sought after comic book in the hobby, and has the best possible page quality that can be assigned. If anyone has ever been curious what an Action Comics 1 looked like the day it came off of the newsstand 75 years ago, this is the answer.
This comic is the best of the absolute best and whoever wins this auction will be the envy of the entire hobby for many decades to come.

I proudly present Action Comics #1 CGC 9.0 WHITE Pages.

Please enjoy,
Darren Adams

This auction will not only make a collector somewhere very happy, but it will help a good cause since 1% of the final auction price will be donated to the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation.

super jedi

I don’t think it’s necessary to read to much into this image tweeted by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder featuring Henry Cavill’s Superman as a Jedi. Still, imagine that crossover.

Actually, don’t do that. Forget I said anything.

superman and batman

Warner Bros. recently shared the first look at Henry Cavill as Superman in the upcoming Batman v Superman, and the image was begging to be Photoshopped. Twitter user @aliarikan put a twist on the movie that undoubtedly draws inspiration from this Thor and Loki version. Yes, Batman loves Superman. Seriously, this cuddly stance makes more sense to me than the idea of the two heroes fighting against each other.
