Awesome Art Picks: Earthworm Jim, Harley Quin, Superior Spider-Man, and More

Each week we search for the coolest comic book art that you won’t see in actual comics. The reason you won’t is because artists often draw sketches for fun or commissions and post them on their blogs, Tumblrs, and websites. Some artists even pre-arrange commissions through their sites so be sure to check them out.

Ron Salas posted some new art on his Tumblr including a Valentine’s Day version of Power Girl.

Is An Ending For MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 5 A “Mission Impossible”? #MI5

I used to work for Paramount Pictures at one time and I was lucky enough to see some of the inside things that films have to go through. This doesnt completely surprise me but you wonder how Hollywood ever survives at times. The production of Mission: Impossible 5 has halted production because the movie doesn’t have an ending. WHAT???

You would think that a big budget movie film would have an ending before it started filming. I guess not, well at least in this case.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a source says that the director, Christopher McQuarrie, was “scrambling” to come up with an ending that would work.

A Paramount representative though had this to say:

“Chris, Tom [Cruise] and a third person wanted to take a minute to get from what they thought was a good place to a more perfect place.”

I actually do believe that after seeing how the film was going and working, that the ending want’t “good enough”. If it makes this film a better film overall in the end, then I’m all for this instead of filming something that was just “good”. You want it to be “great”!

You always want to put a positive spin on these type of things.  What behind the scenes drama is going on, we don’t actually know. However the studio has confidence in the film since they recently moved up the release date from Christmas of this year to July 31st.

Unfortunately these things are not unusual to Paramount. Paramount Pictures had a similar issue with their zombie movie World War Z. Eventually they figured it all out and it became a big hit.  Eventually Mission: Impossible 5 will turn out to be just fine. You just wonder how these type of things actually happen or why they are not thought out beforehand….

My two cents… and welcome to the world of motion pictures…..

Zack Snyder Teases ‘Justice League’ by Posting Jason Momoa’s Aquaman !

Zack Snyder posted this image to his Twitter account on Thursday night of Jason Momoa dressed as Aquaman in what looks like a tease for the Justice League films.

The image appears to be concept art showing a photo of Momoa in Aquaman armor holding a trident, with the words “Unite The Seven” written over the image. With the picture, Snyder wrote, “There is only one true King. #unitetheseven”.

Who are the seven? It probably refers to the seven original members of DC’s Justice League — Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman, with Cyborg standing in for the Martian Manhunter…

So what do you think of what Jason looks like?

Three New Cast Members Join Marvel’s A.K.A. JESSICA JONES !!!

Netflix’s (and Marvel’s) A.K.A. Jessica Jones continues to build up its cast. Krysten Ritter stars as the title character, Mike Colter is going to be Luke Cage, Rachael Taylor plays Jones’ best friend, David Tennant is playing the Purple Man, Killgrave,  and Carrie Ann-Moss plays a charcacter yet to be named . THR now brings word of three new people who have been added to the show:

The Originals and  Power Rangers R.P.M. actor Eka DarvilleThe Kings of Summer’s Erin Moriarty, and All Saints’ Wil Traval have signed on to join this Netflix series.

Darville plays Malcolm (who was part-time assistant to Jessica in the comics), a neighbor of Jessica’s whose life will cross with the private detective’s in a surprising way. Moriarty will be Hope, a young girl who becomes a client of Jessica’s business: Alias Investigations. Traval plays a by-the-book New York Police Department officer.

If you read Alias, the comic on which A.K.A. Jessica Jones is based, you may have a better idea as to how these characters are involved with Jessica. We wont spoil everything here and who knows what changes the TV series may make.

They have put a great cast together. We have high hopes for this show.

A.K.A. Jessica Jones will be available later this year on Netflix.

Fox Orders Pilot of DC Comics’ and Vertigo’s Lucifer !!!

The comic book to television show trend continues. The newest thing is that now it’s starting to go into a direction that is not just superhero by nature. For example,  Constantine just ended its first season, and I, Zombie is about to debut on the CW in March. Now, a new Vertigo based property is now coming to Fox: Lucifer.

Variety has announced that Fox has ordered a pilot order for Lucifer. Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, and Len Wiseman are listed as executive producers of this new hourlong drama, with Wisemen directing the pilot.

The pilot, based on the Vertigo character was created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth, and Mike Dringenberg. It originally came from the pages of SANDMAN (a great comic book series if you have never read it), into his own series by Mike Carey, Chris Weston, James Hodgkins, and Daniel Vozzo. The pilot will follow Lucifer Morningstar who is the lord of Hell. He will be abandoning his kingdom to go to L.A. where he helps the LAPD take down criminals (why, we dont know yet). Wouldnt it be interesting that he was helping the LAPD to gather more souls for Hell.

We dont know what other aspects from Lucifer’s history, like the Piano Bar he owned at one time, we will see on the show.

There is no set date for when the pilot will hit television, but considering the success of other series, it may not be too long before we see something.

STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS #BigSpoiler For A Major Character

 

Ok you clicked on a link with SPOILER in the title, so you should know what you are getting yourself into. Before we go any further, go back now……

.

.

.

.

This post involves the death of a major character in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and how that character dies.

.

.

.

.

Ok, this is your last chance. The following information has NOT been confirmed by the studio (would you really want to confirm this?). The information comes from the Making Star Wars site which has been pretty good in providing information regarding the highly anticipated film. Supposedly this information comes from their most “trusted source”. They then say the scene that has been revealed below has been confirmed “as having been shot at Pinewood.”

You can click away now if you like because after this break, it is all coming out….

“Han Solo is killed off in the film”, and here are the details:

  • This sequence takes place on the ramparts of The Evil Castle.

  • Han Solo is hiding.

  • He decides to reveal himself to Kylo Renn [sic].

  • Finn, Rey, Chewbacca and BB-8 stop in their tracks.

  • They watch as Han Solo confronts Kylo Ren. Kylo Ren silences the conversation forever.

  • Chewbacca lets out of a barrage of angry roars and laser blasts.

  • Kylo Ren flees the scene.

  • Explosions.

  • Stormtroopers file in and Finn and Rey are forced to flee.

  • More explosions.

  • BB-8 and Chewbacca flee to the Falcon.

  • Han Solo is never in a scene after this. “Those are the facts.”

The scene seems to mirror the death of Obi-Wan Kenobi in A New Hope.

Supposely the scene in the teaser trailer in which we see of Kylo Ren in the forrest takes place shortly after the murder of Han Solo..

So what do you think fellow geeks?

 

Who Is The New Young Nightcrawler in X-MEN: APOCALYPSE

In the continuation of  re-vamping the X-Men with a younger cast, Director Bryan Singer has announced that Kodi Smit-McPhee from ParaNorman, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes has been cast as a young version of the mutant Nightcrawler in X-Men: Apocalypse.

Smit-McPhee joins recent newcomers Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, and Tye Sheridan, who will be playing young versions of Storm, Jean Grey, and Cyclops.

Nightcrawler was originally created by Len Wein and Dave Cockrum and made his first comic book appearance in Giant Size X-Men #1. Alan Cumming previously played the original version of Nightcrawler in Bryan Singer’s X2, and he was fantastic.

X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters on May 27th, 2016.
