Wonder-Woman-shirt-feature

In addition to their previously announced line of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” T-shirts, Merchoid has unveiled several official new pieces of merchandise for the film, including a line of baseball caps and bags. This time around, the merchandise features Wonder Woman and LexCorp as well as Batman and Superman.

The new merchandise features both the logos of each respective character as well as full figure shots of the characters in action. Several of the designs are printed with a sublimated “allover” technique, which allows the design to cover the entire shirt. The designs are available in both mens’ and womens’ cuts.

With these Superman pajamas, your underwear goes on the inside

lounger-superman-social

It’s only fair that if the Dark Knight gets his own terry lounger with hood and cape, then so too should the Man of Steel. However, I can’t help but think this will lead to late-night pillow-fight reenactments of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Ignoring why the Superman terry lounger has a hood (no cutout eyes like the Batman and Batgirl PJs, though), it’s undoubtedly perfect for relaxing in your Fortress of Solitude, enjoying a marathon of Superman III, Superman IV: The Quest for Peace and Superman Returns.

Making their official debuts this weekend at Toy Soul 2015 in Hong Kong, the Batman and Superman figures are of course movie-accurate, based on the likenesses of stars Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck.

Expect more photos later in the week, but for now we get a look at both the exterior and interior of the (of course) highly detailed Batmobile, as well as a blurry shot of two of the Dark Knight and Man of Steel figures.

Marvel at this ‘Superman vs. The Amazing Spider-Man’ 3D art

supes-v-spidey-shadowbox3

I’m a bit mesmerized by this video showcasing the 3D paper sculpture of the iconic cover of 1976’s Superman vs. The Amazing Spider-Man by Carmine Infantino, Ross Andru and Dick Giordano.

It was created by Todd R. Reis, who’s a pro at 3D shadowboxes, using 25 laser-scan prints of a store poster replicating the original cover. The production of the commissioned work took him 50 hours, spread over several months.

man-of-tomorrow

The two superheroes may be at odds in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but in this trailer for the fan film Man of Tomorrow, the Dark Knight appears to serve as a mentor to a young Clark Kent.

“You are not alone,” Batman tells him, in French (don’t worry, it’s subtitled).

liu-heroes1

With DC Comics and Frank Miller once more plumbing the world of The Dark Knight Returns, it seems like the ideal time to spotlight Eddie Liu’s “Old Heroes” series.

In four paintings, the Shanghai artist imagines Batman, Superman, Wonder Wonder and The Flash in their later years, complete with gray hair, wrinkles and whiskers.

shadow12-social

Most of us have warm memories from childhood of jumping from chair to chair, or running with a towel tied around our necks, pretending to be a superhero. Artist Jason Ratliff captures that feeling of boundless imagination, and an undeniable sense of nostalgia, in his new series of prints “Super Shadows.”

medicom-social

Although many collectors may still have their eye on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Japanese toymaker Medicom is looking ahead to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice with the unveiling of MAFEX’s Dark Knight and Man of Steel figures.

Standing about 6.3 inches tall, the highly detailed Batman comes equipped with a Batarang, a grappling gun and what looks to be a grenade and an automatic weapon. Superman, meanwhile, gets a display stand to simulate flight.

Superman says ‘Lend a Friendly Hand’ to refugees

supermanrefugeesocial

Earlier today, the U.S. House of Representatives approved considerably stricter screening procedures for refugees from Syria and Iraq seeking resettlement in the United States, despite a veto threat from the White House. It’s a controversial and highly criticized move that has further sparked the current debate on whether or not the United States should allow Syrian refugees to enter the country, but it looks like Superman has already made his stance clear — 55 years ago.

Official ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ T-shirts arrive

bvs1-social

With just a little more than four months until the premiere of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Merchoid has unveiled the first officially licensed T-shirts for the Warner Bros. film.

There are four designs (for now, at least): the Batman v Superman logo; a riff on a vintage boxing poster, with “The Gotham Guardian” pitted against “The Last Son of Krypton”; and two propaganda poster-inspired designs, one depicting a skeletal Batman, labeled “Gotham Demon,” and the other showing a crossed-out image of Superman with horns and the words “False God!”

Superman and Batman are the World’s Finest nutcrackers

nutcracker-superman-social

One is the Man of Steel, the idealistic champion of truth and justice; the other is the Dark Knight, a relentless vigilante waging a one-man war against crime. Together, they fight evil and crack nuts.

Or, more likely, they sit idly on a shelf or mantle. But they could crack nuts, if called into action. Probably. On second thought, these new Superman and Batman nutcrackers from Kurt Adler are mostly decorative, so you may not want to rely on them for help with troublesome walnuts or pecans.

Ugly Christmas-sweater party season is just around the corner. People still throw those, right? If they do, Merchoid has you — and every other geeky guest — covered, in a blend of cotton and polyester.

The online retailer, which specializes in licensed pop-culture merchandise, has rolled out its nerdiest seasonal wear with ugly (but not heinous) sweaters based on characters from DC Comics, Star Wars, Adventure Time and more.
