Fitness Women in Superhero Body Paint by J.M. Manion

J.M. Manion has long been a successful photographer covering the fitness and bodybuilding industry. He has photographed some of the strongest, well-defined physiques on the planet. He's also had a love of super-heroes and comic books. So much so that Manion began publishing his own comic book, Iron Siren Comics, featuring some of the fitness competitors he's covered as superheroes themselves. It's no wonder he sometimes incorporates superhero cosplay and body paint into photo shoots. Here are just some examples of his work:

Batman: Arkham Origins Official Debut Trailer

To be honest I'm not a gamer, I simply don't have the time, but if I was I would pre-order this one now. This trailer for "Batman: Arkham Origins" is intense and the graphics are spectacular. The trailer has an awesome fight between Batman and Deathstroke. I just wish the live-action movies could have this type of veracity in its action sequences. Anyway, gamer or not, please enjoy. 

Young Wonder Woman Prequel Still in the Works at The CW

Shortly after the pilot debacle of David E. Kelley's version of Wonder Woman on NBC it was reported that the CW network was interested in making a 'Smallville'-esque take on the Amazonian princess appropriately titled, Amazon. Yet little was heard of it besides some rumors of a bad script but now Entertainment Weekly has reported from the network's upfront presentation that it's still being developed.
“Oh God yes,” [CW Prez Mark] Pedowitz replied, when asked whether the project was still alive. “It’s being redeveloped. We don’t want to produce something” that doesn’t do the franchise justice.
He also mentioned that while the project had all the right elements it lacked proper "execution". It seems they are being careful and taking their time to get this show right. This bodes well for an eventual return to television since the 1970's with Lynda Carter. The new teenage drama and action show would go nicely with the CW's current huge superhero-based h…

Tribute to Grant Morrison's Batman (Audio from Fatman on Batman #27)

Morrison Tells Kevin Smith About the Changes of Batman Over the Years 

"In this clip from Kevin Smith's "Fat Man on Batman" podcast, Grant Morrison breaks down his method of tackling Batman's vast comic book mythology. In selecting images to accompany their words, I tried to stay within the comics that were being directly referenced, or within continuity. Hope you dig it!" - swank

LEGO Breaking Bad - The Video Game Parody

Fan Created Video Game Demo Begging to be Made

Surely the creators of LEGO's video game franchises can see how primed and ready 'Breaking Bad' is to get their treatment following the likes of Indiana Jones, Harry Potter and Star Wars. In case they have trouble imagining it Brian Anderson has created a four-and-a-half minute video game demo starring our favorite meth dealers. With all the trademark gameplay that LEGO is known for Breaking Bad would translate easily to a game but for a much more mature audience obviously.
