movie-themed variant DC

In 2015, DC Comics is making every month a theme month for variant covers. The March 2015 titles, which are being announced today, will feature variant covers based on Warner Bros. movie posters, from Harry Potter to The Fugitive and Super Fly. Below, we debut four of the new movie-themed variant DC Comics covers, along with the full list of upcoming covers, and their respective inspirations and artists.

Update: We’ve got a lot more covers from other sites that also featured images today.

The gallery below contains the following four covers:

  • BATMAN & ROBIN #40 inspired by HARRY POTTER, with cover art by Tommy Lee Edwards
  • BATMAN/SUPERMAN #20 inspired by THE FUGITIVE, with cover art by Tony Harris
  • SUPERMAN #40 inspired by SUPER FLY, with cover art by Dave Johnson
  • WONDER WOMAN #40 inspired by 300, with cover art by Bill Sienkiewicz

These four covers are just a handful of the titles that will get variant movie-themed covers in March. The full list is below. I really want to see the Flash cover based on North by Northwest that Bill Sienkiewicz is doing. (One assumes it will use the image of Cary Grant fleeing the crop-duster as inspiration.) Sienkiewicz is also doing an Enter the Dragon riff for Grayson, which could be fun, and I’ve also got to see that Magic Mike cover for Justice League, by Emanuela Lupacchino.
