Greetings, you pathetic herd of brainless worms. Here’s some superhero stuff to tide you over until someone puts you out of your misery for the betterment of society.
There’s been a substantial amount of speculation about who Juno Temple is going to play in Christopher Nolan’s upcoming The Dark Knight Rises, and it’s looking more and more like she’s going to play Holly Robinson, a young prostitute and friend (and sort-of sidekick) of Catwoman’s who first appears in Frank Miller’s Batman: Year One. Obviously, the timeline will be reworked a bit (assuming the news is accurate), particularly since Robinson first encounters Bruce Wayne prior to his taking up the cowl and cape.
Switching over the the Marvel universe, some new promo art dropped last week and, well, it ain’t all that, to be honest.
Basically it’s a comic book panel with the faces slightly reworked. I do like that they’re going with the Ultimates version of Hawkeye (at least until they fucked the character into that goofy new costume.
Finally, here are some set pics (via Slashfilm) of Henry Cavill as Superman in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel. I was initially pretty excited about the first glimpse of his costume. Now? I’m a little confused.
Now, OK, look: I get the need to get rid of the underoos. Those things have always been ridiculous, and Superman was basically the last movie superhero to wear them. It was getting silly. And I kind of dug the patterned, scaly-looking texture in the original photos. But what’s with the piping? Was it designed by Liberace? Did I miss a meeting, where Superman decided that his costume needed accents? Will Zod’s outfit be bedazzled? AM I THE ONLY ONE AROUND HERE WHO GIVES A SHIT ABOUT THE RULES?
