Deathstroke leaves a bloody mess behind in fan film

deathstroke-fanfilm

Following the teaser trailer we posted last week, Going Nowhere Studios has released the full version of Deathstroke: Arkham Assassin, a fan-film prequel to the video game Batman: Arkham Origins.

The film features Slade Wilson auditioning for Black Mask, who has put a bounty out on Batman on Christmas Eve. Deathstroke shows off his skills in the action-packed, very bloody and probably NSFW fan film. It’s timing couldn’t be better, as DC just announced a starring role for Deathstroke in Suicide Squad.

Check it out below.

Deathstroke goes in for kill in trailer for ‘Arkham Origins’ fan film

deathstroke

Going Nowhere Studios has debuted a pretty impressive trailer for Deathstroke: Arkham Assassin, a fan-film prequel to the Warner Bros. video game Batman: Arkham Origins.

In the game, a bounty is placed on the Dark Knight by the Black Mask, bringing eight of the world’s greatest assassins to Gotham City on Christmas Eve — including the formidable Deathstroke. But as the trailer teases, the crime lord requires a demonstration of his skills.

The short film is set to premiere Monday online.

BaneCat is going to have to kill you now

banecat

It’s been nearly two years since the release of The Dark Knight Rises, and we’re no closer to figuring out the reason for Tom Hardy’s bizarre and grating Bane voice (the actor has said it was based on bare-knuckle boxing champ Bartley Gorman, but that doesn’t explain why). Still, it gave Bane the most recognizable voice of any Batman villain since Burgess Meredith’s Penguin, and paved the way for … BaneCat.

Somehow, that voice is less annoying when it comes from a plump, plotting feline wearing a respirator mask and fleece-trimmed coat — one who’s apparently getting his own series.

Dreamworks animator’s “Action Movie Kid” brings his son’s playtime to life

actionkid-wideIt’s easy to be jealous of kids in the modern era — they have so many wonderful toys. However, one dad has taken playtime to the next level by using Adobe Aftereffects on brief clips of his son playing around. Dreamworks animator Daniel Hashimoto alters clips of his son James to reflect the childlike wonder everyone felt as a kid when playing with lightsabers in the toy store or pretending a Nerf gun was actually a grappling hook. Hashimoto uploads the clips to the Action Movie Kid YouTube channel, and each of them has a different action movie spin.

Attack ad warns, ‘Don’t Trust Captain America’

dont-trust-cap

With midterm elections approaching faster than most of us would like, we’ll soon be inundated by political commercials peppered with bold claims, blatant lies, ominous voiceovers and bizarre graphics. Looking to beat the rush, Jason Inman has released an attack ad targeting the most patriotic of public figures: Captain America.

Wading deep into the mud, Inman questions Steve Rogers’ Army records, his faithfulness, his dancing abilities — he even accuses him of … palling around with terrorists!

Swift-boating was introduced in the 2004 Presidential campaign; does this ad mark the debut of shield-throwing? (Wing-heading? Winter-Soldiering? Super-Soldier truthers?) And who’s this mysterious group paying for Inman’s ad?

Superman takes us on a soaring GoPro journey in terrific fan film

corridor-superman

If as a kid you ever dreamed of viewing the world from Superman’s perspective, you finally have your chance: The good folks at Corridor Digital have created a video in which the Man of Steel finds a GoPro and straps it to his head, recording the journey as he returns the camera to its owner.

It’s a fun piece that not only provides a nice tour over, and through, Southern California, but shows off the talent of Corridor Digital, which has produced some other YouTube videos you may have seen. There’s also a lengthy look behind the scenes at the making of “Superman With a GoPro.” Watch them both below.

March brings more MODOK than the law allows

MODOK_yourMarch2014!_CON_2

March brings not only strong winds and NCAA brackets, but also March MODOK Madness, the annual celebration of all things MODOK.

For the past several years, the March MODOK Madness blog has celebrated the big-headed villain by enlisting various artists to draw his MODOK-ness in all his glory. Marc has hardly started and already they have three posts up, including a frozen MODOK (why isn’t MODOK on an ice cream bar?), a team-up with Dr. Doofenshmirtz and Mark Monlux’s awesome Easter MODOK (seen below).

Be sure to check in with them all month for more MODOK artwork.

Meet the next Avengers franchise: the fan-made Avengers UK

540138_265886473548703_1634738982_n

Marvel’s Avengers have grown from a single team to a full-blown franchise, with early spinoffs like West Coast Avengers giving way to the current crop, which sports modifiers like “New,” “Mighty,” “Young,” “A.I.” and even “World.” But some U.K. fans felt at least one version of the Avengers was missing … so they made their own.

Avengers UK is a “‘just for fun non-profit’ fan-based fiction,” where a group of Marvel’s British-based heroes unite to fight evil. According to writer/artist Darren Wilson, in Avengers UK you can “see spectacular battles, amazing abilities and standards of queuing up in a way that only residents of the U.K. can truly achieve (except maybe not the last one)!”

As seen above, the primary Avengers UK team is Captain Britain, Pete Wisdom, Dark Angel and Motormouth, although the comic has teased other members — both memorable and arcane in Marvel and Marvel UK continuity.

Man proposes with epic cosplay movie mash-up

proposal-cap

We’ve showcased plenty of creative marriage proposals and ceremonies, with all of the trappings, from the “battle wedding” and slasher-comic engagement photos to the Scott Pilgrim-themed proposal scavenger hunt and the Bat-themed wedding. However, this one may take the cake (so to speak): When Victor Delgado wanted to ask his girlfriend to marry him, he turned to some friends — more than 50 of them, in fact — for help. A lot of help.

It took months of shooting and weeks of editing, not to mention assistance from the likes of the Costumers Guild of Hawaii, the Pacific Outpost 501st, Ghostbusters:Hawaii Division and the League of Shadows Hawaii, but the epic mash-up of sci-fi and action movies produced by Oahu-based JHM Productions was undoubtedly worth it. If, y’know, Delgado’s girlfriend said “yes.”

How do you get from the cheerful Batman of the 1960s to Christopher Nolan’s brooding Dark Knight? Based on new fan film Batman Evolution, it involves Black Mask, some gunky chemicals and dubstep.

Judging by fan trailer, Hawkman may not fit into WB’s film plans

hawkman-fan-trailer

With rumors circulating about cameos by the Flash, Aquaman and even Martian Manhunter in the Man of Steel sequel, it’s likely only a matter of time before Warner Bros. gets around to everyone’s favorite Thanagarian (and/or reincarnated Egyptian prince). If studio executives have any doubts, Good Mythical Morning presents an argument for why Hawkman deserves to headline his own movie that, if I’m understanding it right, would be pitched as “Any Which Way But Loose meets Fly Away Home meets Raiders of the Lost Ark.”

There’s also a trailer which, to be fair, features a costume only slightly worse than the one Hawkman wore on Smallville.

After detailing life of Iron Man action figure, fan turns to Thor

iron man5

For nearly a year and a half, from June 2012 to November 2013, an unidentified Facebook user, with some help from friends, chronicled the worldwide adventures on a pint-sized Tony Stark on a page called Poses (with Iron Man), photographing the action figure in myriad scenarios, often accompanied by captions. Around the house, with pets, in the car, on trips to Chicago, New York City, Uganda and Australia and … it was seemingly endless.

But then, on Nov. 14, they suddenly stopped. However, this morning, a video appeared, showing a hand reaching in frame to place the Iron Man figure on the shelf, only to pick up Thor. A note reads, “Coming in February …”

Fans revive Marvel’s El Aguila in pitch-perfect fashion

aguila1-cropped

A lot of Marvel and DC characters crop up time and again in fan comics: the Bat-family, the Young Avengers, the X-Men, Hawkeye … But do you know who doesn’t get a lot of love? El Aguila, the late-’70s mutant swashbuckler — he used a sword to discharge electricity — who, in keeping with Marvel comics of the era, faced off against heroes like Power Man, Iron Fist and Hawkeye only to team up with them after they realized they were on the same side.

If you’re not aware of him, it’s understandable; he was fun and flashy, but never a major player (or even a mid-level one, for that matter). But Pablo Dura, David Abadia and Sergio Cordoba aim to change that with their fan comic El All-New Aguila #1, which comes with All-New Marvel NOW! branding, an interview with the “hot writers” and an ad for the Disney XD animated series.

It’s pretty sharp, reintroducing Alejandro Montoya as a faded hero who aims to reignite his career, if only to help sell copies of his memoir. It’s lighthearted stuff, with appearances by S.H.I.E.L.D., the Heroes for Hire, and even Thor.

Take a peek below, and read the entire issue here.

Duane in Calif. gets a piece of the action (figures)

DarkseidSixInch

Duane in Orange County, Calif. is a man of action — action figures, that is.

“I have always had toys, but growing up I couldn’t have nearly as much as I wanted,” he said. “… Now, when I want something, I seek it out furiously. Unfortunately, as I get older the collectibles that I want get more and more expensive.”

Check out his collection of action figures — Power Rangers, Doctor Who, DC Comics, Avengers and more — below.

Shippers finally find their anthem with ‘I Ship It’

i-ship-it

While a lot of nerdy parody videos and songs can be a chore to endure, Not Literally Productions’ ode to shipping, “I Ship It,” is really enjoyable, in part because it spoofs Icona Pop’s ubiquitous “I Don’t Care,” which bores into your brain like one of those eels from Star Trek II, but also because the lyrics are pretty clever.

For instance, “You’re on the canon ground, I’m up in crack ship space; Let’s start a shipping war, I don’t care if I get hate; Don’t like my pairings? Well, then you can hit the bricks; This is my OTP, I’ll go down with this ship.”

I apologize in advance for getting this stuck in your head.
