24 February 2013 12:40 PM, PST

Thom Schillinger is a 3D conceptual designer for the entertainment industry, creating advertising material and logos for popular television shows and for Hollywood's biggest blockbusters. During a 16 hour span Thom created over 200 logos for X-Men 2. You can view all of them by clicking here. What's interesting, is that 20th Century Fox picked one of his early designs as the film's logo. Click Images to Enlarge I did a few rounds for the next level, for the "Pay-off Poster" that was fun to design, namely we wanted to show the doors open with the X-Men walking towards camera. Lasers, jet engines, giant Cogs, and locks were fun to play around with, but the exercise did not pay off with a finish. - Thom Schillinger Cerebro Door Icon Designs 3D Logo "Box" X-2 Concepts 3D Logos from a Single Vector Thom also worked on the logo for X-Men: The Last Stand, as »

Joss Whedon Briefly Discusses The Avengers 2

23 February 2013 7:36 PM, PST

Much Ado About Nothing gets its U.S. premiere next month at SXSW but the film has already had its European premiere at the Dublin International Film Festival earlier today. Of course, during the films Q&A following the screening the discussion turned to The Avengers sequel. Responding to questions about doing more Shakespeare, Whedon says he doesn't want to do another one exactly like he did Much Ado About Nothing. He says that he needs to keep trying different things from a creative standpoint. From there, the discussion turned to The Avengers sequel. Whedon: When I first considered doing Avengers 2, my first question was what can I do that's new? Because I can't make it bigger....but I can make it better. The moderator asks about his philosophy for Avengers 2. Whedon: Death, death and death. (Crowd applauds madly.) If you listen to the audio (you can find it by »

Iron Man 2 Concept Art: Unused International Robots

23 February 2013 5:00 PM, PST

Conceptual illustrator, Scott Patton, was tasked with the mission to make the failed robots that other countries created in order to compete against Tony Stark and his Iron Man suit. You can see the scene with the international robots in the video below. Also of interest, are variation of Ivan Vanko's (Mickey Rourke) whips. The original plan was to give Whiplash (Rourke) mini-whips, having his character be cunning, something akin to a James Bond-like role. Russian Iron Man North Korean Iron Man Iron Man 2 was directed by Jon Favreau, from a screenplay written by Justin Theroux. The cast included: Robert Downey, Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Scarlett Johansson, Sam Rockwell and Mickey Rourke.

The Thing (2011): Unused Alien Pilot Concept Art & Creepy Transformation Sculptures

23 February 2013 2:06 PM, PST

Artist, Paul Komoda, uploaded concept art of the Juliette creature, Alien Pilot, and Griggs' transformation in the helicopter scene. The Alien Pilot is very interesting because the creature was meant to appear at the very end, but producers ditched it for a different conclusion. "Basically that spaceship would have been originally crewed by an alien race which, as it was relayed to me, would have been on a planet to planet zoological expedition, collecting different creatures and storing them in these containment pods" - Paul Komoda You'll find galleries from a couple of the sculptors on the project, Mikey Rotella and Casey Love. As a bonus, I also added Casey's images that document his time working with Rick Baker and his crew on Men In Black 3 alien designs. Enjoy!

Release Date For Disney And Marvel's Big Hero 6 Animated Movie Revealed?

23 February 2013 1:12 PM, PST

While we're still waiting on an official announcement in regards to Big Hero 6, the fine folks over at Bleeding Cool have seemingly discovered the release date of the animated movie. According to Rentrak, an agency who work with distributors, exhibitors and advertisers across Europe and America, the film has been slotted in for a release on November 21st, 2014...in Spain! However, it's likely that the Us and UK release dates will also be sometime around this period. Created in 1998, Big Hero 6 is a Japanese team sanctioned by the government. The roster originally included X-Men characters Sunfire and Silver Samurai, although it seems far more likely that this version will focus on the younger team who last year made an appearance in an Amazing Spider-Man tie-in. »

Fan Made: Justice League Movie Logos In The Style Of Man Of Steel

23 February 2013 12:18 PM, PST

Graphic designer Dave Jones has sent ComicBook.com a collection of Justice League logos inspired by the official logo for Man Of Steel, which hits theaters June 14th. He previously stated that, when working on this project, he had the idea that if the Zack Snyder-directed reboot did kick off a DC Cinematic Universe and the visual style would influence other Justice League characters, what would that look like? Below are his logos for Batman (Caped Crusader), Wonder Woman (Amazon Princess), The Flash (Scarlet Speedster), Green Lantern (Emerald Guardian) and Hawkman (Winged Warrior), as well as his descriptions for them and his ideas. These Justice League logos are inspired by the Man of Steel movie. The Superman (Man of Steel) logo is my best attempt at replicating the movie's poster featuring the stylized logo. The Batman (Caped Crusader) logo has three separate bat images on different depth layers. I »

Drew Karpyshyn Addresses Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic Movie Rumor

23 February 2013 11:57 AM, PST

Last night, a rumor went online saying that among the many Star Wars film projects in development at Disney/LucasFilm was an adaptation of the hit RPG Knights Of The Old Republic. The rumor stated that Drew Karpyshyn, who wrote the game as well as its sequel and The Old Republic, was working on the script. However, the writer has now taken to his Twitter account to address this rumor. @agentjaspor @headgeek666 this would be awesome, but I haven't heard anything about a #Kotor movie. But I'm not at #bioware anymore so...— Drew Karpyshyn (@DrewKarpyshyn) February 23, 2013 Of course, this doesn't necessarily mean that a Knights Of The Old Republic movie isn't in the works, as a different screenwriter could be penning such a project. Of course, the only Star Wars film that is in active development is J.J. Abrams' Episode VII, which may hit theaters in 2015. It »

Real Life: Scientist Creates A "Spidey-Sense" Suit

23 February 2013 7:41 AM, PST

As any one on here will know, Peter Parker's Spider-Sense allows him to anticipate danger before it happens and react accordingly. Now we humans aren't lucky enough to be gifted with lighting fast reflexes, but science has given us a leg up with the anticipating danger part at least. The suit, actually called "SpiderSense", was built by Victor Mateevitsi of the University of Illinois in Chicago. How does it work? Allow New Scientist.com to explain. "[The suit] has small robotic arms packaged in modules with microphones that send out and pick up ultrasonic reflections from objects. When the ultrasound detects someone moving closer to the microphone, the arms respond by exerting a growing pressure on the body. Seven of these modules are distributed across the suit to give the wearer as near to 360 degree ultrasound coverage as possible." "When someone is punching Spider-Man, he feels the sensation and can avoid it. »

Star Wars Family Tree Chart

23 February 2013 7:04 AM, PST

For those that might be unfamiliar with the "expanded universe" characters that could be featured in the new Star Wars movies, Chart Geek has put together this handy family tree chart. As you can see it details the lineage of the characters we know and love (well, most of em) from the previous movies in the saga, right up to the sons and daughters of Han and Leia, and Luke and Mara Jade - who are rumored to be the focus of Episode VII and beyond. Personally I think the new films will definitely focus on the next generation of characters, but I don't think they will necessarily be these exact ones. Expect a lot of changes, and not just the names. »

Talking to Vanity Fair about the Academy Awards and her role in The Master, Amy Adams briefly touched on Man of Steel Well, I like girls in the media, Krista. They’re smart. Always have good glasses and a smart pencil skirt. [Laughs.] I’m being facetious. But you know I love a pencil skirt. It was so fun, such a departure from anything I had done before.

Bryan Singer Talks About His Role In X-men: First Class

23 February 2013 6:01 AM, PST

Talking to Crave Online, Bryan Singer talks about his behind the scenes role in the X-Men franchise since directing X2. Singer talks about his involvement with X-Men: First Class and dismisses the notion that he's picking up the pieces left by Matthew Vaughn. Singer says he's been involved in the X-Men all along. Singer: It would be [weird to direct Days of Future Past] if I didn’t write the story for X-Men: First Class. I wrote the story to that movie and I produced it and I was instrumental in the casting, in design and involved in the post-production, so I was part of that movie. I initiated that movie and originated it so in that way, and worked with Matthew and I was the one who actually hired Matthew so in a way I feel like I’m not completely entering someone else’s franchise. I’m entering one that he executed wonderfully, »

J.J. Abrams Acknowledges The Wait For Star Trek Into Darkness

23 February 2013 5:37 AM, PST

Courtesy of EW, we have some non-Star Wars talk from J.J. Abrams who sounds a bit apologetic about the long wait for Star Trek Into Darkness. Plus, Roberto Orci acknowledges the unlikelihood that Abrams returns to direct the third Star Trek entry. At a press event at Bad Robot in Santa Monica, Califronia, J.J. Abrams speaks about Star Trek Into Darkness and the lengthy wait for the film. Abrams: It’s not decades, but it’s long enough that you do have to remind people what the thing is and where it’s at,” he says. “It would have been better probably for the studio [if we'd put it out earlier], because it would have been fresher in people’s minds. But I’m happy we didn’t rush it. It wouldn’t have been a better movie if it came out earlier, I know that. Benedict Cumberbatch and Chris Pine speak about the secrecy »
