“Ego Trip Abroad”
Original Airdate: 4 March 2014
In This Episode…
The group has a wonderful time in Japan. Lots of travelogue nonsense before they meet Kazuhiro Tsuji (arguably the greatest makeup artist in the world) who will judge their foundation challenge: create an original oni (a Japanese demon, who we are spending a lot of time with in Teen Wolf, ironically enough). Daran wins, and will have immunity for their spotlight challenge.
The contestants head to Akihabra, the anime capital of the world. This is to inspire them, for they are going to create their own anime characters, an alter-ego of themselves. A famous anime artist will be mentoring them. They will then return to Los Angeles and create the actual makeups in their lab.
Daran wanted his alter-ego to find freedom. To him, that was either fish or birds, and he was inspired by the koi, »

Details have emerged about the plot of Fox's new series Gotham, which is set in Gotham City years before Bruce Wayne became Batman. io9 has gotten their hands on a leaked copy of the pilot script, dated January 31, 2014 and labeled "Second Network Draft," which teases the possible inclusion of one new villain, while setting up the relationship that forms between young James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) and his new partner, the corruptable Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue). We've also learned details about villains Catwoman and Riddler.
The show, which was given a direct-to-series order last year, completely bypassing the pilot stage, largely focuses on Gordon and Bullock, who are investigating the murder of young Bruce Wayne's parents. The death first appears to be a common mugging until new, unspecified details emerge. Bruce Wayne, who has not been cast yet, is said to be between 10 and 12 years old in the show, which confirms a report from December. »

Bride Of Frankenstein Cosplayer: Meg Murrderher Sgh watermarked images photographed by Sgh PhotoArt One of the most popular horror classics of all time and an acclaimed sequel to the original Frankenstein. The legendary Boris Karloff reprises his role as the screen's most understood monster who now longs for a mate of his own. Colin Clive is back as the overly ambitious Dr. Frankenstein, who creates the ill-faed bride (Elsa Lanchester). Directed by the original's James Whale (his last horror film) and featuring a haunting musical score, The Bride of Frankenstein ranks as one of the finest films not only of the genre, but for all time. »
Some superheroes have their origins in ways unavailable to your average person. Batman and Iron Man rely on their own personal well-funded technology. Captain American is a result of a highly complex super soldier program. Thor is a space alien god, which could also be said for Superman. And someone like Ghost Rider or Jonah Hex has his origins in the supernatural. Still, there are plenty of superhero origins that rely on pure chance, often a result of a horrible accident. That got me thinking… could an industrial accident really turn you into a movie superhero? The Answer: Almost assuredly not. And you’d die a painful, horrible death. So don’t do it. In the interest of simplicity, these origins are from the movies rather than the comic books themselves. While the comics feature some pretty outlandish and unbelievable origins, there’s a narrower field in the films themselves. Two »

Concept Art & Storyboards by Tim Burgard Storyboards below are not by Tim Burgard. Click Here To See Dawn Brown's Set Designs Chills and thrills: will Gotham City be put on ice? George Clooney is Batman as the dark knight battles his greatest threat yet: cold-hearted Mr. Freeze (Schwarzenegger) and venomous Poison Ivy (Thurman). Batman has more than Gotham City to protect: the youthful eagerness of crimefighting comrades Robin (O'Donnell) and Batgirl (Silversone) puts them frequently in harm's way. Batman & Robin (1997) was directed by Joel Schumacher, from a script written by Akiva Goldsman. The film starred: Arnold Schwarzenegger as Dr. Victor Fries/Mr. Freeze, George Clooney as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Chris O'Donnell as Dick Grayson/Robin, Uma Thurman as Dr. Pamela Isley/Poison Ivy, Alicia Silverstone as Barbara Wilson/Batgirl, Michael Gough as Alfred Pennyworth, Pat Hingle as Commissioner James Gordon, Elle Macpherson as Julie Madison, Vivica A.

Hey fellas! Valentine’s Day is around the corner and you’re probably cursing yourself because you’ve got to pony up some time or shell out some cash to get something special for the lady in your life. Why? Because if you don’t, you know you’ll suffer for it for at least a couple of weeks.
C’mon! You probably have a good one, so why don’t you count your blessings and take her out and make her feel appreciated? Don’t let your lady turn evil, because valentines are supposed to be exchanged and you need to ensure that the valentine you get back isn’t one crafted for revenge.
Take these super-bad girls, for instance. Every single one of these villainous vixens are about due rewards. They certainly wouldn’t expect a valentine from you, but if they were supposed to give you one, »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 arrives in a mere three months, but it feels like the web-swinging reboot-sequel keeps expanding its cast every day. Just yesterday, director Marc Webb officially announced via Twitter that former Officer perma-temp B.J. Novak will play A. Smythe, which is almost certainly some version of Alistair Smythe – a character who eventually becomes the bad-guy criminal scientist behind a line of nasty robots called Spider-Slayers. It’s possible that Novak will only be in the movie for a short while — and it’s worth remembering that Dylan Baker played Curt Connors through two Spider-Man movies without every transforming into the Lizard. »

Lego enthusiast and Batman superfan Paul Hetherington, a.k.a. Brickbaron, joins the ranks of our favorite genre-themed Lego masterminds (like this rogues gallery of horror movie villains we spotted Monday) thanks to this humongous diorama inspired by The Joker's Funhouse in Lego Batman and other Batman video games. Photo: Carlyle Livingston via Flickr Not only does it feature three separate levels depicting Batman & Robin battling villains, henchmen and monsters, the set-pieces are also enhanced with incredible motion, smoke and lighting effects (Poison Ivy's "pets" are particularly sick). It's creepy too, as anything with giant toothy clowns naturally would be. Photo: Carlyle Livingston via Flickr The Funhouse made its world premiere last October at BrickCon in Seattle, where it deservedly took home the “Evil Genius” award in the Superhero category.

I love it when Lego maniacs get crazy creative! You've got to check out this amazing build by Paul Hetherington featuring Joker's Funhouse that includes moving parts! It's pretty spectacular.
Paul Hetherington did more than merely build this colorful funhouse lair for the Joker; he also animated so that Poison Ivy's plants chomp, the Riddler runs his decoder, Penguin and his birds enjoy the Rocket Ride, and Batman and Robin do their best to stop their wicked fun.
Make sure to watch the video below to really appreciate the greatness of this Batman and Robin Lego masterpiece.
