There’s a typical cycle for many major summer films, where the initial marketing gives way to a deluge of last-minute materials, with the post-release zone made interesting by the reveal of concept art and, frequently, alternate designs for various elements of the movie. We see this for Marvel movies all the time, and for many others as well.
Which is to say that, even if Fantastic Four had been a big hit without any tales of backstage drama, we’d be in the place now where we’d start to see concept art like the pieces below. In this case, it just happens that this Fantastic Four concept art, by Steve Jung, features one element many people would have liked to see in the film: the castle home of Doctor Doom. Read More »

20th Century Fox hired Wes Ball to direct The Maze Runner, and that film did well, with Ball rolling straight into making the sequel to that film, The Scorch Trials. Fox evidently wants to keep Ball around, and has just set him to direct Fall of the Gods, an adventure story based in Norse mythology that first had life as an illustrated fantasy book backed by a successful Kickstarter campaign.

If you haven’t seen Ant-Man, the latest release from Marvel Studios, it’s worth heading out to theaters to catch. It’s a refreshingly contained story with the right amount of humor, charm and action. And as with any Marvel movie, there are some nice touches for fans of the comic books, including a credits scene that may be a direct response to the overwhelming fan demand for more female characters.
Speaking of female characters, one thing that Ant-Man could have used a little more of was The Wasp, the female counterpart to Hank Pym’s (Michael Douglas) original iteration of Ant-Man. We’ll likely get to see more of the character in future Marvel movies, but in the meantime, some concept are has surfaced showing off alternate costume designs for the characters.
See the new Wasp concept art below, but beware of some spoilers in the text as we discuss the heroine in the movie. Read More »

Steven Spielberg big screen adaptation of Robopocalypse has been in the works for years now. The script was being developed by Spielberg and Drew Goddard based on the Daniel H. Wilson novel. Actors such as Chris Hemsworth, Anne Hathaway and Ben Whishaw were all said to be in line for roles in the film about “a global war between man and machine.” In 2012 it was supposed to be the filmmaker’s next movie, but in early 2013 the film was pushed back to development status with no indication of what the future might hold.

The show is spinning off the established shows Arrow and The Flash, following time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill), who is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat.
The show may not hit the air until 2016, but Warner Bros. Television is bringing the show to Comic-Con along with the new CBS series Supergirl and The CW’s other two aforementioned DC Comics series. And just before fans get a new glimpse at the show, a pretty slick piece of concept art has surfaced online showing the titular team using their superpowers in a pretty flashy spectacle.

The long-developing American Gods TV show got to take a big leap forward this week when Starz announced it had officially greenlit the show. But even so, it’s going to be a while before we’re actually sitting down to watch the first episode. They’ve barely started casting, let alone shooting.
So in the meantime, series co-creator Bryan Fuller has offered up a tiny taste of the upcoming series in the form of some concept art. And for what it’s worth, author Neil Gaiman wholeheartedly approves of his story’s new look. See the first American Gods concept art after the jump. Read More »
