Granada, Spain-based artist Ruiz Burgos (a.k.a. “OnlyMilo“) has created an amazing series of illustrations featuring DC Comics heroes and villains in the style of Norman Rockwell‘s iconic covers from The Saturday Evening Post. Burgos’ design process for each piece can be viewed on his art blog.

Take A New Look At The Suicide Squad.


 

tt

DC’s Suicide Squad has been a primary source of interest since 2015’s Comic-Con reveal.  A few days after the release of their character posters for the film, DC and the powers that be have revealed a new trailer, showing off tons of new footage, and a bit more of the story.  Lets start with the negative (simply because there isn’t much of it.)  The CG doesn’t seem complete, and could be better in certain shots, specifically in regards to El Diablo.  Thats really about it.  You get more well rounded view of all the characters, and their individual roles with the exception of the Joker.  It appears as if Joker isn’t the only advisory if he’s an advisory at all, and he gets a bit more screen time than the previous footage.  Both “Mr. J” and Harley Quinn steal the show, with Joker doing his famous laugh while laying amongst a kaleidoscope of knives, and Harley giving an amazing line about the voices in her head.  Check the trailer below.

I was so tuckered from E3 that wasn’t personally able to make it to Comic-Con San Diego this year, but I was still keeping an ear to the ground for big news, and I found it via SuperHeroHype.com.

On the heels of the worldwide success of “Man of Steel,” director Zack Snyder is bringing together the two greatest Super Heroes of all time—Batman and Superman—for the first time on the big screen. The announcement was made today by Greg Silverman, President, Creative Development and Worldwide Production, and Sue Kroll, President, Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.
The current hit, “Man of Steel,” has taken in more than $630 million at the worldwide box office to date, and climbing. Along with its star, Henry Cavill, the upcoming film brings back Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane. The new Batman has yet to be cast.
Snyder is co-writing the story with David S. Goyer, who will then pen the screenplay. Production is expected to begin in 2014, with an anticipated release date in Summer 2015.
Silverman stated, “Zack Snyder is an incredibly talented filmmaker, but beyond that, he’s a fan first and he utterly gets this genre. We could not think of anyone better suited to the task of bringing these iconic Super Heroes to the screen in his own way.” Kroll added, “We are thrilled to be back in business with Zack and his team on this next movie. The success of ‘Man of Steel’ is a wonderful testament to the love and support that both fans and new audiences, worldwide, have for these characters. We are very excited to see what Zack has in store for all of us.”
Diane Nelson, President, DC Entertainment, noted, “Superman and Batman together on the big screen is a dream come true for DC fans everywhere. All of us at DC Entertainment could not be more excited for Zack’s continuing vision for the DC Universe.”
Zack Snyder, who made a surprise appearance at Comic-Con today, breaking the news to audiences there, later said, “I’m so excited to begin working again with Henry Cavill in the world we created, and I can’t wait to expand the DC Universe in this next chapter. Let’s face it, it’s beyond mythological to have Superman and our new Batman facing off, since they are the greatest Super Heroes in the world.”
The new film brings back Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder as producers. This time, Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas are serving as executive producers, along with Benjamin Melniker and Michael E. Uslan.
Thomas offered, “Whilst our ‘Dark Knight’ trilogy is complete, we have every confidence that Zack’s fresh interpretation will take the character in a new and exciting direction. His vision for Superman opened the door to a whole new universe and we can’t wait to see what Zack does with these characters.”
The film is based on Superman characters created by Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster, and Batman characters created by Bob Kane, published by DC Entertainment.

The Minimalist Hero.


As super hero movies continue to dominate the summer blockbuster season, the graphic designers behind their poster seem to have been running the same circles.  The posters for Ironman 2 look quite similar to the Tron posters, which in turn, look strikingly like the classic Star Wars posters.  Designer Marko Manev has taken his time to turn the tables on this trend.  Take a look at his brilliant minimalistic super hero posters.

Maybach Music @ The “I Am Still Music” Tour.


So I’ve been semi-obsessed with the “I Am Still Music” tour ever since I got my tickets months ago.  Although (at least on the blog) I’ve been primarily focused on Weezy and crew, I saw a production from Dre Films/Maybach Films of the tour from Rick Ross’s end of things and was quite impressed.  The video basically documents the Maybach Music camp and their show in Washington D.C.  Check the method below.
