This promo image for Sony's NEX camera reveals a new look at The Amazing Spider-Man, via Comic Book Movie. It's not from the movie, persay, just an idea of what the camera can do.

This custom action figure by Mint Condition Customs, Darth Knight, sold for $64. Seems like a steal. Head to Geekologie for more images.

Happy Place (via NPR Tumblr) did a very funny article featuring "17 comic book covers were Superman is a complete sociopath." Not to outdo them, iO9 has an article called 10 Times Batman Acted Like An Absolute Lunatic.Gamma Squad has a huge gallery of their favorite WonderCon cosplay from last weekend including the above female Justice League.Bleeding Cool now not only has the ComiXology iPad app updated to HD, but the Marvel app has now too.

Cool piece of fan art by Deviant Artist Enymy called The Knights. Thanks to Geek Tyrant.

Stan Lee spoke to Collider about what it's like doing cameos on the big Marvel movies, such as the upcoming Iron Man 3:

I haven't done that cameo yet. It's almost scary 'cause they just give me a date. They'll say, "Stan, come over next Thursday for your cameo," but they don't tell me what it is. So, I show up and they say, "Go to wardrobe." In wardrobe, they say, "We want to get you a white shirt and a green sweater and a black zippered jacket," and I'll say, "Don't bother, I'm wearing one." And then, they say, "But, you can't wear yours!," and they look around and get me the exact same thing, but I'm not allowed to wear my own. And I still don't know what my role will be. I go on the set and one minute before we're gonna shoot, the director says, "Okay, Stan, this is what I want you to do." So, I don't know what is expected of me, until I get there, but of course, I do it magnificently.

DC Nation – Batarang Test by shikinatural93

Promoting their new DC Nation series on Cartoon Network, they tested out if a Batarang really could work. And it destroying stuff. Am I the only one who thought the Batarang was supposed to return like a boomarang, hence the "arang?" Thanks to Daily Motion (via Nerd Bastards) for the heads up.

Because I know so many of you craved for fan made superhero movie posters, here's The Avengers by Alain Bala. Thanks to F Yeah Movie Posters.

Comic Book Movie found a whole bunch of Dark Knight Rises books on Head there to see the full compliment but, for now, this is just a coloring book.Clark Gregg has seen The Avengers and said the following about it to Collider:

 I'm very excited for people to see this movie. I think the fans, like me, will be as excited as I was, when I saw it. From the minute I read Joss Whedon's script, I thought, "Oh, man, this is going to be fun to do!" The hardest thing to get right is to figure out how to bring all those characters together, and to fulfill the promise of The Avengers. They really set a very high bar for themselves because you've been setting this coalition up, for these five movies, and they better deliver. And in my opinion, they thoroughly deliver.

Head of Marvel TV Jeph Loeb spoke to Collider about the latest in regards to all their in development TV shows like The Incredible Hulk:

All I can tell you is that, right now, the three shows that we have in active development at ABC are The Incredible Hulk, aka Jessica Jones, which comic book fans will know as Alias, and The Punisher. And then, we have two shows that are already at ABC Family, which are Mockingbird and Cloak & Dagger. They're just in development. As you know, as with anything that you're doing, particularly when you're starting up a brand new entity, things take time and we want to make sure we get it right.

This Avengers poster released by Hershey's is pretty sick. Head to CBM to see a hi-res version.

The floor at a comic convention can be a difficult place to navigate or talk about but has done a great job with this article, "The Ten Best Finds of WonderCon," including the above Watchmen painting.

I'm kind of off the superhero dessert thing, but, when served by a person in a Boba Fett mask, it's kind of amusing. Thanks to I Love Superhero Shirts (via That's Nerdalicious).





Comic Book Movie uncovered this card from the Upper Deck set of The Avengers. It appears to be a flashback scene that's not in Captain America: The First Avenger. Does this mean there's a WWII flashback in The Avengers?
