DeviantART member ChasingArtwork – a.k.a. Justin Currie – who brings us a world where our favorite Marvel and DC superheroes are robots.  It looks almost as if Michael Bay’s ultra-detailed style Transformers were infused into these classic Marvel and DC characters.  Check out Currie’s amazing illustrations below.

Iron Man: Industrial Revolution.

On Tuesday, Marvel’s Iron Man 3 became Disney’s fifth release to cross the $400 million mark at the domestic box office. The film, which has now earned over $1.2 billion and is the #5 film of all time globally, also recently passed Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and is currently the #6 film of all time at the international box office with more than $803 million.  After achieving the second-biggest domestic opening in history with $174.1 million, Iron Man 3 crossed the $1 billion threshold globally in 23 days, making it Disney’s sixth billion-dollar and second highest-grossing release of all time, behind only Marvel’s The Avengers.

While doing the research on the box office gross of the latest Ironman film, I came across a small collection done by Marvel in 2010 for ‘Iron Man: Industrial Revolution’ put up by Juan Doe.  Check the epic artwork.

Superhero Noir.

The Mideval Avengers.


It always pains me to find incredible art out there on the web, and not have the background information on the artist to give them their due.  Luckily, the housemate of the wildly talented illustrator that drew the photos above posted his deviant art link into the photo.

The Fashion Of ‘The Avengers’ For Women.


You know that tingly sensation of awe and excitement you get after seeing a truly great film? Well, besides leaving me with a serious hankering for shawarma, Marvel’s The Avengers definitely gave me that oh-my-gosh-you-guys-let’s-watch-that-again feeling.  I saw the movie a while ago, but I still can’t stop thinking about it all: the epic battle scenes, the hilarious one-liners, Scarlett Johansson, and of course, the style.  I’m not personally big on fashion, but I’m more than appreciative when I see a woman who’s dressed like she knows what she’s doing.  My assistant shot me an email the other day with some excellent fashion suggestions taking their inspiration directly from Marvel’s hit movie.

Captain America/Steve Rogers

Captain America/Steve Rogers, played by Chris Evans, is the First Avenger, born from the country’s efforts to create an army of super-soldiers during World War II. To prevent weapons of mass destruction being dropped on America, he’s forced to crash land his plane in the Arctic.

Discovered by S.H.I.E.L.D. after spending 70 years frozen in the ocean, he awakens in the present day only to be hit with the crushing realization that everything and everyone he knew and held dear in the 1940s is gone. The atrocities of WWII fresh in his mind, he’s left cynical and disillusioned about humanity. Nevertheless, he still believes in serving the greater good and becomes the reluctant leader of the group.

Product Information:  Jacket, Dress, Shoes, Earrings, Ring, Clutch

While any woman would certainly turn heads if they wore a stars-and-stripes unitard to class, it might not be for quite the right reasons.  Instead, channel this stalwart hero with an All-American, 1940s-inspired look that features a chambray shirtdress and brown bomber jacket. Add a modern twist with bold flag-emblazoned booties: if you’re not a fan of the JC Litas, red pumps would also look cute with the outfit. Although Captain America’s vibranium shield isn’t available for purchase, this cute star ring is the next best thing. Retro waves are pretty and polished; plus, they’re all the rage this spring.

Ironman/Tony Stark

Iron Man/Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr., is a self-described “billionaire, genius, playboy philanthropist.” (It’s a very apt description, to be honest.) Stark is far from a team player: he’s arrogant and snarky and often chafes under direction.

Despite his personality faults, it’s impossible to deny his engineering genius. His origins as a superhero were explored in 2008′s Iron Man and 2010′s Iron Man 2. Stark, a wealthy industrialist, has an electromagnet in his chest that prevents a piece of shrapnel from penetrating his heart. The arc reactor that powers the electromagnet also powers the Iron Man suit, a metal exoskeleton that allows Stark to do things such as fly and withstand tremendous trauma.

Product Information: Blazer, Tee, Jeans, Wedges, Necklace, Bracelet, Earrings, Sunglasses

Tony Stark is all about flash and style, so make sure all eyes are on you with this bold metallic look. A sharp burgundy blazer and gold coated jeans resemble his Iron Man suit, while a charcoal burnout tee and dark sunglasses recall Tony’s too-cool-for-school attitude. Sculptural wedges with a metallic detail tie the look together.  No hero’s outfit is complete without accessories, so pile ‘em on! A teal pendant not only provides a nice color contrast to the blazer, but also references Tony’s chestplate. This silver cuff bracelet might not help you suit up, like Tony’s do, but hey, it’s cute.

Thor

Thor, played by Chris Hemsworth, is a demi-god of Asgard. In 2011′s Thor, he was banished to Earth because of his arrogance and warmongering. Now, he returns to our planet to retrieve his renegade adopted brother, Loki, who has grandiose plans to enslave the human race. Thor has sworn to defend Earth, but at the same time is conflicted because the villain is family.

Initially, he and the other Avengers majorly clash due to misunderstanding about their mutual goal.  However, he proves to be an invaluable member of the team, not only because he’s more familiar with Loki’s insanity, but also because he’s the only one with the strength to keep the Hulk under control.

Product information: Top, Skirt, Heels, Cuffs, Earrings, Necklace, RingPhone case

As the god of thunder and lightning, Thor wears lots of metallics, and a silver foil tank is a trendy take on his armor. Translate his flowing garnet cloak into a trendy high-low hem skirt that pairs perfectly with black lace-up heels. I couldn’t find any hammer jewelry, so go for hammered metal accessories like these twin silver cuffs and black choker necklace instead. Golden lighting bolt earrings and a horn ring reference Thor’s godly background and powers.

The Hulk/Bruce Banner

Bruce Banner/Hulk, played by Mark Ruffalo, is a brilliant, mild-mannered scientist whose experiments with gamma radiation went horribly wrong. As a result, when he’s angry, he mutates into “the other guy” — a giant green beast who destroys just about everything in his path. In the film, Nick Fury, director of S.H.I.E.L.D., tries to recruit Banner for his unparalleled knowledge of gamma radiation. It’s been years since his other self has emerged, but Bruce is understandably reluctant to join the mission. Even if his involvement is just in a scientific capacity, he knows that any exposure to battle could cause the unleashing of the Hulk.

Product Information: Blouse, Shorts, Sandals, Necklace, Earrings, Satchel, Nail Polish

Besides a pair of practically indestructible shorts, the Hulk hasn’t got much in the way of uniform. Nevertheless, you can totally channel both the not-so-jolly green giant and his more pleasant alter ego. A trendy mint blouse and lavender cut-offs are a pastel take on the Hulk’s green coloring and purple pants. He goes barefoot, but you can wear minimalist two-strap sandals instead.  Radioactive earrings add a pop of trendy neon and reference the Hulk’s origin. Let’s not leave Bruce Banner out of the equation: add some scholarly details with a navy satchel and a spectacle necklace. Finally, add the sartorial equivalent of  ”Hulk…smash!” with a coat of black shatter polish.

Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff

Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff, played by Scarlett Johansson, is a former KGB assassin turned S.H.I.E.L.D. agent. Though she doesn’t technically have superpowers, she’s been trained as an assassin from an early age. Natasha, who made a brief appearance in Iron Man 2, has nerves of steel and some serious martial arts skills.

Product Information: Jacket, Dress, Heels, Belt, Earrings, Lipstick, Nail Polish

Since Black Widow’s the only woman in the Initiative, I initially wanted to avoid an overly feminine, stereotypical outfit, but in the end, the sultry bandage dress won out. After all, ScarJo does possess famously dangerous curves and there’s no denying Black Widow’s major sex appeal. Toughen up the look with a sharp-shouldered leather jacket and sassy slingbacks that resemble the ones she wears at the beginning of the movie.

Accessorize with scarlet accents: black widow spiders are easily identified by the red hourglass on their midsections, so slip on a red patent belt. Then slick on a coat of crimson Hourglass lipstick and reference Natasha’s mother country with Essie’s “Russian Roulette” nail varnish. These spider earrings might be more reminiscent of another Marvel character, but they’re also sleek enough to be Black-Widow-esque.

S

Hawkeye/Clint Barton

Clint Barton/Hawkeye, played by Jeremy Renner, is quite the loner: as an expert sniper, he spends a great deal of time perched in the shadows, waiting for his targets. This master marksman has got a neat set of trick arrows (acid, explosive, flare, and boomerang arrows, just to name a few). Hawkeye mostly keeps to himself, but does share a deep, unspoken connection with Black Widow. He made a cameo in Thor.

Product Information: Vest, Tank, Jeans, Boots, Bag, Ring, Necklace, Bracelet

In the original comics, Hawkeye wears a flashy purple and blue suit. While I can see why they toned it down for the movie, it’s actually a pretty fun color scheme for real life. Distressed denim vests are a hot trend this year, and this one pairs perfectly with a cobalt tank and violet skinnies. Buckled ankle boots toughen up the look while a hawk ring and nest pendant add some avian detail.

Between Hawkeye, Katniss, and the ever-popular Legolas, archery is definitely getting its moment in the spotlight. A leather bucket bag is a cute civilian take on Hawkeye’s sheath of arrows, while a golden arrow bangle adds a nice dose of sheen.

Hong Kong’s Take On The ‘Ironman’.


Different people have their own personal takes on style and design.  In Hong Kong, a group of designers came together to create some new and inventive looks for Ironman.  These figure designers really went all out on their designs.  Check the method.
