The Flickering Myth writing team sit down to talk about the fourth trailer for Man of Steel...
After releasing what felt like a million posters (albeit awesome ones), Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures gave us a fourth trailer for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel - this time featuring more of Michael Shannon's General Zod.
So, what did the Flickering Myth writing staff think?
Martin Deer: This trailer compliments the epic third one so well: we've had the hope that is Superman, now we have the very real threat that is Zod. The stage is perfectly set. You can really see the 'First Contact' scenario at play, with Zod's message - which is brilliant; that would be a terrifying moment in real life and I imagine the story will capture that.
To address complaints I've seen: Superman can be pissed off. In fact, it is what has »
This is an unused poster design for Tim Burton's original Batman film with Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson. The poster the studio ended up using became iconic, but this one is pretty cool too. It also comes along with an interesting tag line.
In the not too distant future, law will have no meaning, courts will have no power and justice will have no champion, and then he will return.
That doesn't really sound like the movie that was made. Return from what? In fact, Cbm points out that it sounds more like Judge Dredd, and I have to agree.
You can see more unused posters for movies like Pulp Fiction, Oceans 11, The Exorcist, and Unforgiven over at daybees. »

One of the most striking features of the sizeable promotional campaign for Tim Burton's 1989 blockbuster Batman was the poster. A simple, straight image of the Batman logo, it was pretty much everywhere in the build-up to the film's release, and was one of many ingredients that led to Batman being arguably the first modern-era blockbuster. It was certainly the first to really show how important the opening weekend could be to a film, and arguably sowed the seeds to the first weekend-driven ad campaigns we get with modern cinema.
But things could have been different. Over at Daybees, the site has gathered together a collection of alternative versions of movie posters. These were the drafts that never made it, and amongst examples for Unforgiven, Mystic River, The Exorcist »

Picking ten artists out of the vast array of talent working in comics today is an impossible task. These artists were chosen based on the uniqueness of their style compared to the “house” style of Marvel and DC, their ability to create character, setting, and plot through their art, and also on the quality of the covers that they’ve done. All of the artists on this list have regular interior work so artists like J.H. Williams, Bryan Lee O’Malley, and Alex Ross can’t be found here (even though Alex Ross’ Justice League is the cover image). Without further ado (and in honor of the late Wizard magazine), here are the top ten hottest current artists in comics in no particular order.

As mentioned in my previous article showcasing the majesty of a gun-toing Russell Crowe as Jor-El in the first character poster, there’s rarely a day goes by without some glorious Man Of Steel goodies leaving us to salivate over the upcoming Superman epic. I’ve rarely felt this excited for such an awesome superhero ensemble and brings back the memories of sneaking into a screening of Tim Burton’s Batman, way back in 1989.
Zack Snyder’s is the man tasked with breathing new life into the iconic character known for donning the red and blue spandex. Only this time, Henry Cavill’s Kal-El will look a lot cooler than the late Christopher Reeve in the costume. Fingers crossed the film is a massive hit, so we can stand behind our hero and join him in the sun for future instalments.

Founded on the iffy premise, raised here by Nicolas Winding Refn, that the combination of a cult book plus a cult director would have equaled a bigger-than-“Star Wars” worldwide sci-fi sensation, “Jodorowsky’s Dune” indulges one of film history’s more entertaining “what if” stories. Before David Lynch spectacularly botched a bigscreen adaptation of Frank Herbert’s “Dune,” Alejandro Jodorowsky, cinema’s shaman of psychedelia, had a spectacular go at the job. Nearly 40 years later, first-time director Frank Pavich attempts to re-create that vision (in our imaginations, at least). Expect fanboys to flip and minds to be blown over the highly entertaining result.
The year was 1974. After almost singlehandedly inventing the midnight-movie phenomenon with “El Topo,” Jodorowsky had scored a second hit — in France, at least — with his massive head trip, “The Holy Mountain,” prompting producer Michel Seydoux to encourage whatever project the director might want to do next. »

Like many youth in 1988, the release of Tim Burton's Batman ushered in a renewed interest in reading the Dark Knight's comic book adventures. That summer, I borrowed stacks of Detective and Batman comics and devoured them in late night cramming sessions. Many of those comics were illustrated by Norm Breyfogle.
Breyfogle's Batman continues to be one of my favorite depictions of the character. His grim look and long ears remind me of how Bob Kane first envisioned and drew the Caped Crusader. Breyfogle also co-created Ratcatcher and Anarky, which are two of the most memorable super villains of the late 1980s.
When it was announced Breyfogle was providing the art for the digital series Batman Beyond Unlimited, I couldn't have been more excited. Now it's been released in a collected paperback edition entitled Batman Beyond Unlimited: 10,000 Clowns. Breyfogle got even more recognition when DC released a comic book preview »

Here's a fresh batch of worthy, geek-friendly crowdfunding projects that have caught our eye this week...
The best part of putting together this weekly crowdfunding column? While trawling through the dozens of ideas that appear online every day, we stumble on all kinds of weird and wonderful things.
Some ideas are semi-practical - a new kind of flip-flop with soles made from astro turf, for people who want to feel as though they're walking on grass all day long - while others are downright strange - such as a set of tabletop gaming figures shaped neat like little human backsides.
Some ideas are commercial and enticing enough to sale past their funding goal - a zombie Lego Batman mash-up animation's already doing well - while others are rather more niche - we spotted a strip poker text adventure, which has, unsurprisingly, attracted rather less interest so far. »
Okay people. Get ready to have a good moan, as some new images and a video have made their way on-line from the reboot of the Paul Verhoeven's eighties classic RoboCop. Check them out here, courtesy of Collider...
Directed by Jose Padilha (Elite Squad), this updated film follows Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) in his transformation from cop to machine. The new shots don't show anything we haven't really seen before, though we get a nice look at RoboCop's new gun. No sign of a holster, so here's hoping it still fits inside his leg. Apart from the angle of these pictures doing him no favours at all (beer belly?), I'm intrigued by Murphy's right hand, which appears to be completely human. A way for a supposedly fearsome cyborg to offer a human touch?
With it's predecessor much loved, RoboCop has a tough job on it's hands, but shall »

"I would love to make Dead Space, I'll tell you that right now," said John Carpenter last week, adding the celebrated director, expert moustache cultivator and avid gamer to the the swelling ranks of reputable film-makers (ie those whose names aren't spelled "Paul Ws Anderson" or "Uwe Boll") who recognise games as another viable well of narrative inspiration – equal in richness, if not yet in popular reputation, to any other artform.
And it's difficult to envisage a director better suited or more qualified to interpret the dank corridors and squelchy, shambling horrors of the Usg Ishimura. The Thing, The Fog and Halloween clearly influenced Visceral's icky franchise, and Carpenter's ideas feeding back into a mythology they helped create gives a pleasing sense of symmetry. His skill with suspense and »

Dr. Decker comes back from Africa after a year, presumed dead. During that year, he came across a way of growing plants and animals to an enormous size. He brings back a baby chimpanzee to test out his theory.
During the early 1950s, America was awash with giant monster movies such as Gordon Douglas's Them! and The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms, which then inspired Japanese studio Toho to kick start their kaiju-eiga with Gorjira in 1954 before moving on to movies such as Rodan, Varan, Mothra and (to some extent) The Mysterians. However, the UK didn't really have a giant monster movie to write home about.
The specter of the Man of Steel has loomed on the horizon ever since the first trailer was revealed last summer, attached to the theatrical release of The Dark Knight Rises. Superman fans have been intrigued yet skeptical. For enthusiasts, Superman is the greatest comic book character of all time, and they can’t wait to see him on the big screen again amidst the legion of newly-popularized super hero movies. But for naysayes, haunting memories of Superman’s most recent foray onto the silver screen – 2006’s self-important and visionless Superman Returns – have caused apprehension about a return of the character.
Adding to the conflict is the popular opinion that Batman, once Superman’s second in the pantheon of greatest heroes, has now superseded his rival. He has proven himself critically and financially thanks to Christopher Nolan, who raised the Batman films from the ashes of Batman and Robin and »

With Robert Downey Jr.'s contract renegotiations off to a start (not to mention every other Avenger as well... yikes!), a lot of talk is being made of just how integral Downey is to the Marvel franchise. To be honest, you're not going to get any argument about that here. Downey's commitment to the role, natural charisma, and superb acting chops all coalesced in 2008 to form the biggest surprise hero hit ever. Thanks to "Iron Man," the armored Avenger rocketed from Marvel's B-list all the way to the top. The guy is irreplaceable.
But is he the most successful superhero actor ever? To find out, I spent a lot of time on Box Office Mojo pulling data and making spreadsheets. I compiled a list of the top 10 most successful superhero actors, based on box office totals. There were a few requirements though:
