You Thought The Batmobile Was Dope?


With the release of Justice League in just a month’s time, the movie’s marketing is about to come into full effect. This featurette reveals the decisions Zack Snyder and his team took in selecting cars that reflect the characters of Diana Prince and Bruce Wayne.  Diana will drive an E- Class Cabriolet while Bruce will get behind the wheel of the Vision Gran Turismo – a concept car created specifically for the Gran Turismo video game. Some footage of the cast on set can also be seen.  Check the method below.

Michael B. Jordan Will Be ‘Raising Dion’.


Netflix is doubling down on the superhero genre and they’re looking to tell original stories outside of their Marvel Netflix shows.  However, they’re turning to a Marvel Studios actor to spearhead their latest project.  Michael B. Jordan will co-star and executive produce a 10-episode series titled Raising Dion.The series will be based on a 2015 short film of the same name, which you can check out below.This short was created by music video director Dennis Liu (Sia – You’ve Changed, Justin Timberlake – Not A Bad Thing) who provided an official statement in a press release.

I started this project many years ago because I wanted to see more diverse representation on film and television and I’m excited to partner with Netflix and MACRO, who I know shares that commitment. More than ever, we need more stories told from different points of view and my hope with Raising Dion is to create a cinematic experience for all families that will lift your spirits and make you laugh and cry.

R.I.P. Ralphie May.


As an amateur stand up comic, watching stand up specials, going to stand up shows, and introducing myself to comedians I never knew of, Ralphie May was one of the biggest surprises I could have received.  I don’t mean biggest as in his weight, I mean that Ralphie May’s comedy as a southern, caucasian, 40-something comic was extremely relatable, true to life, and over all hilarious.  Today, October 6th, died of cardiac arrest after battling pneumonia for several weeks on October 6, 2017 at the age of 45.  The comic community is undoubtedly saddened by this, as am I.  Rest In Peace Ralphie.  (You can catch some of his specials on Netflix, and I’m sure more will be out soon, giving his passing.)

Just a little bit about him… Ralphie was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee, but raised in Clarksville, Arkansas. At age 16, he broke 42 bones in his body in an automobile accident. When he was 17 he won a contest to open for comedian Sam Kinison, whom he considered his idol.  Kinison suggested that May move to Houston, Texas to further develop his comedy routine. May graduated from the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Houston. He then moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in entertainment, and as those of us in the comedy community know, was QUITE successful.

Creepy Things (Part 1.)


When it comes to unique character designs, and just all around dope artwork, Sasha Korenev is second to none.  The collection titled “Creepy Things” is one of many collections, and features some dope artwork starting off with a rendition of Pennywise The Clown (from “It”).  Check the collection below.

More than just individual characters, the collages and pattern designs of Sasha’s work has always fascinated up, check it out.

Welcome Back!


Much like when Batman disappears for an extended period of time, friends of this blog have begun to get very worried.  For several months now, life has been a bit up and down for not just myself, but the writers of this site in general.  We know subscribers noticed when things somewhat trailed off, and then came to a complete halt.  Now that things have calmed down quite a bit, we’re going to slowly start back up again, hopefully by next month, we’ll be back to 10 or so posts a day of new music, art, “sciency stuff”, movie news, and the like.  So please do your best to bear with us, as we all get back up on this horse and continue the ride.  Also although he asked not to be named, I still want to give a warm shout out to our newest writer on the team.

I Know Him! He’s A Friend From Work.


In a surprise no one saw coming, Marvel Studios has released the first teaser trailer for their highly anticipated fall release, Thor Ragnarok, and it’s pretty damn awesome.  It’s not particularly forthcoming with plot details, but we do learn why Chris Hemsworth’s God of Thunder hasn’t been spotted with Mjolnir in any of the early promo art as Cate Blanchett’s Hela, headdress and all, shatters his mighty hammer to Kingdom Come and takes over Asgard. The trailer also shows off nearly all of the new and returning characters and closes with our hero stepping into the Grandmaster’s arena where he reencounters an old friend from work… but it doesn’t seem like the reunion will be as joyous as he had hoped.  Check out the trailer, which is set to Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song,” below:

Batman v. Superman Took Some Serious Work.

Say what you will about Batman v Superman (and let’s face it, there’s a lot that can be said), but the visuals were amazing. Some were better than others obviously because Doomsday certainly didn’t look that great, but this new VFX reel from Scanline VFX puts the spotlight on how they enhanced this world and created many of the locations most of us probably just assumed were actual places and sets.  The visuals in Snyder’s movies are always pretty distinctive, but this video really emphasises just how different he made our world look to help create the DC Films Universe. Of course, the huge amount of special effects shots no doubt played a big role in why Batman v Superman’s budget was so massive, something which has resulted in its impressive box office haul being considered “disappointing.”  Anyway, watch the VFX reel below and then let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
