Joss Whedon wonder woman

DC almost beat Marvel to the punch. Years ago, DC and Warner Bros. had recruited a then cult writer named Joss Whedon to write a script for a Wonder Woman movie. Unfortunately, the film didn’t get made.

Years later, Joss Whedon went on to direct the biggest superhero movie of all time, The Avengers, and Warner Bros. is again developing a Wonder Woman movie, starring Gal Gadot and directed by Michelle MacLaren. But fans still like to imagine what Whedon’s Wonder Woman may have been and now, we have a small glimpse.

A promotional poster for the would-be movie was available at San Diego Comic-Con 2005 has now made it on eBay. It’s available along with artist Adam Hughes‘ original drawing, making the set a very exciting and rare thing. Below, check out both pieces of Joss Whedon Wonder Woman art work. Read More »

Ant-Man

Last night, Marvel finally gave us a long-awaited first look at Ant-Man… and fan reactions were mixed, to say the least. Some were so unhappy with it, in fact, that they decided to take matters into their own hands by cutting together a different version of the Ant-Man trailer. Watch a much better Ant-Man trailer fan edit after the jump.

Jurassic Parks and Recreation

Pretty much the moment Chris Pratt was announced as the star of Jurassic World, we Parks and Recreation fans started to wonder Andy Dwyer would make of all this. After all, hanging out in a dino park all day is exactly the kind of thing that’d get Pawnee’s most lovable idiot to make this face:

Wonder Woman header

Until films like Doctor Strange go in front of cameras, we rarely get to see what the actors look like in costume. That’s where the fan community comes in. They’re always more than willing to grab an image of a famous actor, and others of their newly attention-getting role to put them together, giving us an idea what we might see on the big screen in the future. Two such recent instances are fan art of Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange and Gal Gadot in some upgraded Wonder Woman armor. Check them out below. Read More »

Gaston challenged
Disney is great when it comes to casting the costumed characters you see in their theme parks. I’ve seen various characters present so many fantastic off the cuff responses in characters to park guests over the years. The latest to make its way across the interwebs is Beauty and the Beast antagonist Gaston challenged to a feat of strength and got exactly what he asked for. Of course, the character from the Disney animated classic is a narcissist who thinks he is superior to everyone around him. A Disney World park guest challenged the arrogant and egotistical hunter to a push up contest and the costumed character accepted. Watch the resulting Gaston challenge as recorded on a cameraphone (people, lets start recording horizontally and not vertically, okay?) after the jump.

Anthony Petrie gallery 1988 - Jaws

Raiders of the Lost Art, Jaws, Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Ghostbusters, Die Hard – these are some of the most popular films ever made. They also have some of the most recognizable posters of all time. So, as an artist, attempting to make a poster for one is no easy feat. Do you just put everyone’s face in the frame? Maybe you try to sum up the story with one image? The options are endless, and sometimes not that appealing.

Artist Anthony Petrie has quietly been perfecting a unique, very cool way to approach well-known films. Over the past year or so, he’s been making posters for iconic movies that look like charts or maps of each movie. So, for example, he did Ghostbusters as a New York City subway map, filled with references. Die Hard became a set of Nakatomi Tower blueprints and Aliens became a readout on a motion tracker. Each poster represent these amazing movies in subtle ways, specific to the movie, without going overboard on character likenesses. They showed something more artistic and fun.

January 9 at Gallery 1988 West in Los Angeles, Petrie is presenting a whole new exhibit of new work in that mode. It’s called Charts, and he’s doing maps for some of the movies mentioned above and many more. Below, check out just a few of the Anthony Petrie Gallery 1988 Charts including an exclusive from a galaxy far, far away. Read More »
