catwoman-social

Fan-favorite contemporary artist Yuko Shimizu has been making poster prints for 1992’s “Batman Returns,” and the illustrator’s latest offering with Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman as the subject is absolutely stunning.

Capturing the moment of Selina Kyle’s transformation and featuring the now-classic costume — with an added Christmas-y touch (it was a Christmas movie after all!) — the poster is being released by Dark Hall Mansion on Tuesday, May 31, at 12:30pm PT, over at the Dark Hall Mansion Store.

Relive ‘Star Wars: A New Hope’ with this epic infographic

graphic3

We’ve seen 1977’s Star Wars retold with gorgeous papercraft, adorable Tsum Tsum plushies and, some would argue, with The Force Awakens. However, this may be the first time it’s done with an infographic.

And it’s not just any infographic. It’s a glorious 123-meter “infinite scroll” work of art by illustrator and graphic novelist Martin Panchaud, whose two areas of expertise combine to recount the entire story using impressively detailed recreations of ships and weapons, dialogue, and little colored dots to represent characters.

cw-social

If you thought the rivalry between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark was bad, just imagine how much worse it would have been if they had to share chores, backseats, toys and living space. The grudge match between Avengers is nothing compared to the grudge match between… siblings. This new spot from Walmart shows off some “Captain America: Civil War” accessories — including helmets, a shield and repulsor ray — and puts them in epic motion as this brother and sister prepare to clash.

Watch Tony Hale & Adam Pally Fight for Glory in Funny or Die’s ‘Captain America: Civil War Re-Enactors’

CWreMain

#TeamCap and #TeamIronMan just drafted their worst recruits.

In a sketch that honors the Merry Marvel manner of Not Brand Ecch, comedy stars Tony Hale and Adam Pally play a pair of committed Civil War re-enactors hellbent on breathing life into the conflict between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark through a dramatic re-staging of events. The epic, 13-minute send-up eschews fandom at its silliest, delusion at its finest, passions at their strongest, and uniforms at their saggiest.

apocalypse-lego

With Apocalypse’s declaration that “Everything they built will fall,” it was only a matter of time before somebody created a LEGO version of the X-Men: Apocalypse trailer. Oh, who are we kidding? A LEGO version was pretty much inevitable, no matter what the ancient mutant said.

Enormous Deadpool statue seeks to seduce Japan

deadpool-statue

Wade Wilson is determined to win over the people of Japan … with an enormous statue of Deadpool lying seductively on the bed of a truck.

If you think that come-hither pose looks familiar, it’s because it was used in the marketing of the blockbuster movie. Only that time, the Merc With a Mouth was lying, Burt Reynolds-like, on a bearskin run, in front of a fireplace.

‘Captain America: Civil War’ 8-bit trailer will make you dust off your NES

8-bit-social

Although Steve Rogers slept through the 8-bit era, Bucky Barnes may have around, although it’s difficult to imagine him taking a break from assassinations to enjoy a little Castlevania or Super Mario Bros. Nevertheless, both of them would probably appreciate the nostalgia at play in this 8-bit remake of the Captain America: Civil War trailer.

It’s pretty authentic, too, with the dialogue — to say nothing of the music — recreated in classic video game style.
