The NEW SUPERMAN MOVIE COSTUME...NOT AS BAD AS YOU THOUGHT IT WAS.


New images from the set of the the new Superman flick have been released and they give a better look at the new (trunkless) suit and I have to admit that despite my original misgivings it looks great. They obviously took their ques from the abandoned JJ Abrahams designs.

The only thing that still bugs me is as with the Superman Returns costume they have left out one of my favorite details of any superhero costume, the yellow shield on the back of his cape. it's a small gripe but the devil is always in the detail.

Bill Withers - I Can't Write Left Handed

An Homage to 1970's SUPERGIRL.

Over the weekend I was looking through some of my old comics and so drew this in honor of my favorite version of Supergirl. Disco blouse and hot pants what's not to love.

the NOT QUITE 'COMPLETE' STAR WARS BLU RAY COLLECTION.


I can't stress enough how much of a rip off this box set is, $89.99 for three awful movies you'll never watch (the prequels) and three that have been tampered with to the point you almost struggle to remember what you loved about them in the first place, but the thing that bother's me most  is the use of the word 'Complete'.
You will no doubt already know about the 'extras' that the 'Complete' saga comes with, a few back slapping documentaries and deleted scenes freely available on You-Tube all of which fall embarrassingly (although not for Luca$) short of completing anything. For me to even consider purchasing these disks it would need to include the following (regardless of whether Lucas likes them or not)

1. The STAR WARS HOLIDAY SPECIAL: and if not the whole thing then give us the animated short featuring Boba Fett (which was his first ever appearance)

2. Both the Ewok flicks (Caravan of Courage and Battle for Endor)

3. A documentary on the animated Star Wars adventures: This would look at the cartoons Droids, Ewoks and the Clone Wars and would include pilot episodes and an insight into how these fit into the bigger picture (this could also have dealt with comics, novels and games)

4. Original non Special Edition versions of the original trilogy.

My love of Star Wars hasn't totally dried up but my blind childhood loyalty definitely has, and is it just me that thinks putting 'Annie' Skywalker on the cover is not the best way of appealing to fans who might still be on the fence about buying this hack job.

Anne Hathaway 'Catwoman' costume update IT'S A FAKE.

Yesterday I posted up what I thought was a full on image of the new Catsuit but as you can see it's a fake ripped of a Larra Croft image.

Much love to Joey for the heads up that it might be a fake and to Gavin for sending me the 'real' image. Sir's I salute you.

Update: Now that the real costume has been revealed it turns out that this fake mock up  is pretty much spot on.

Anne Hathaway 'Catwoman' costume

Not digging the goggles (they could have used the same design as the comics even without the cowl) or the hair-do but apart from that I'm lovin' it.

UPDATE: At the time of posting it was discovered that this pic was actually a fake based on a Lara Croft costume but as we now know it's pretty much bang on the money.

SCHEME 9's How to fix a Sequel No.1: BLADE TRINITY

BLADE TRINITY.
It's generally accepted that where bigger budget more star studded comic book flicks failed, Blade more than succeeded. Then for it's sequel with arguably even less star power it pulled a master stroke by being directed by del Torro which resulted in a cracking picture which again made it more than a match for the more high profile Marvel properties (Sam Reimi's Spiderman was released the same year) but when it came to the 3rd installment the day walking vamp just plain...sucked (I thank you).

the SCHEME 9 fix.......
BLADE : SPIRITS of VENGEANCE.

Two words.......GHOST.....RIDER.  In the comics Blade was a regular guest in Ghostrider (Midnight Sons makes more sense as a title but Spirits of Vengeance sounds a lot cooler) so having the characters meet on the big screen makes sense also in my opinion the Ghostrider character doesn't really work as a Hollywood 'star' attraction (as the Nic Cage flick proved) but team him up with the number 1 vampire hunter (I'd also include Hannibal King) and pit them against an army of demons (not Vampires) led by Dracula (the Marvel version as seen in the Tomb of Dracula comics where Blade made his first appearance.)
Have del Torro return as director and that is big screen comic book gold.

Anne Hathaway as Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises

 First we get Superman and now Catwoman.....goodtimes.

Marvel One-Shot: The Consultant - Clip 1

Here is the short Marvel: One Shot featuring Agent Coulson that will be available on the Thor Blu-Ray. As I have been pretty much ignoring the bulk of Marvel comics for a good while now, let me know if the ''Consultant'' refares to anyone in particular in the Marvel Universe or is this how Hank Pym will get his introduction to the 'Avengers' franchise?

Much love to Joe 'Nightwing' MacDonald for the link.

War & Comics: Charley's War and Dougie's War

Comics legend Pat Mills the writer of Charley's War (first published in the pages of Battle Picture Weekly tells the story of a young soldier during WWI) and the team behind Dougie's War (which deals with a soldiers return from Afghanistan and the effects of PTSD) will be appearing at the Edinburgh International Book Festival and the Comics & Conflicts Conference at the Imperial War Museum (part of the Comica festival). These book demonstrate the diversity of comics and there ability to convey a strong message to a wider audience I highly recommend checking them out.

For more details follow the links.

IS DARK KNIGHT RISES BASED ON DARK KNIGHT RETURNS

A while back a friend of Scheme9 let me in on some production info which hinted that Bane in the Dark Knight Rises could be based on the Mutant leader from Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns. The trailer suggests that Batman has been missing and an evil force has taken over Gotham which fits with the Mutants story also the recently released images of Bane (standing on top a new Tumbler) addressing his troops got me thinking that this might not be far off the mark and that his mask dose resemble the fangs of the Mutant leader.
Let me know what you think.
