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.

WB has just released a batch of new Suicide Squad character portraits to promote the film. It seems the marketing campaign really wants to reinforce the tattoo motif. Will “skin-ink” actually factor into the plot of David Ayer’s story? And what of Common’s mysterious villain?  We’re roughly two months away from the release of the film yet (thankfully) we still don’t know a whole lot about what Deadshot (Will Smith) and co. will be facing other than a crazed Joker (Jared Leto).

Take A New Look At The Suicide Squad.

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.

Director David Ayer and the cast of Suicide Squad have taken to social media to unveil the first official (and very awesome) posters for the highly anticipated DC Comics adaptation, and they offer up a very unique take on the Task Force X villains.  The minimalistic art style lends beautifully to the uniqueness of the film and the characters in it.

Batman v Superman v Justice v Suicide Squad v Joker.

San Diego Comic Con is in full effect, and some folks though that with Marvel’s absence, there wouldn’t be that much to cheer for.  Wrong.  The 3 minute and 40 second full length trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice tore the roof off the convention center in San Diego.  I myself was furiously texting my homegirl Vicki, and screaming at the to of my lungs at my television, when I got a fresh look at the movie.  The 9/11 style opening shows Bruce Wayne’s relation to events of ‘Man of Steel’, and you see his true nature as people flee from danger, and he runs directly into it.  A dead Robin suit, the hint of Doomsday, Superman tearing to doors off of the Batmobile, and the Dark Knight using the man of steel as a skateboard, are all in the extended trailer.  Words can’t describe the excitement, check the method below.

 

The Batman/Superman news isn’t the only thing that DC and Warners had up their sleeve.  The ‘Suicide Squad’ trailer was also put online, in a much more glorious fashion.  In traditional Comic Con fashion, there is a grainy cell phone video, of the trailer, and many a person whooping when the new Joker shows up.

From the logo, to Joker being the antagonist to the character designs, to Amanda Waller (played by Viola Davis) explaining how Superman brought out more individuals with “abilities”… this movie seems a bit more solid than people have given it credit for in the past.  Check the method.
