'Justice League' Trailer Makes a Splash with Sexy Aquaman and Friends


This week's build-up with teasers and posters for Warner Bros' 'Justice League' culminated in its first full-length trailer on Saturday. It did not disappoint as Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Flash (Ezra Miller), and Aquaman (Jason Momoa) team up to take on an other-worldly threat. See the thrilling trailer below set to the Beatles' "Come Together."


The trailer opens on a winterized Bruce Wayne on horseback, an ominous warning from Diana "It's already here," a sexy slow-mo shot of Arthur Curry, Barry meeting his dad behind bars, Victor Stone carrying a Mother Box, and more. It's a chockful two-and-a-half-minutes of stylized action that have come to define director Zack Snyder with heavy CGI imagery, dark skies, saturated colors, and eye-popping visuals. What's on screen is all Snyder but the tone seems to have been lightened and the humor in the trailer comes from a surprising source - Batman.


There is so much great stuff in the trailer for fans to disseminate. From Amazons fighting parademons, to Commissioner Gordon's (J.K. Simmons) brief appearance, to probably the one Super Friend that steals the spotlight is Momoa's Aquaman. 


Aquaman has been mocked and derided for decades for everything from his costume to his powers to communicate with sea life, Momoa has redefined him as a hard-drinking badass as though he were a leather-clad biker or something. We see him in action, spearing parademons two at a time to hitching a ride aboard the Batmobile. The depths of coolness are as deep as the ocean when he sees Bruce in costume for the first time, "Dressed as bat. I dig it." It doesn't hurt that with his long locks, tattoos, and muscles, Momoa is easy on the eyes too. 


Aquaman isn't the only one getting his first big screen live-action adaptation. The fan-favorite former Teen Titan from the comics and cartoons is Cyborg. The half-human, half-machine Stone was the test subject of one of his scientist father's experiments that went horribly wrong, resulting in saving his life with special prosthetics and metallic implants. Besides being a genius most of his body parts have been replaced with advanced prosthetics granting him super strength, speed, stamina, the ability to interface with computers, and various tools and equipment within his metal shell including a sonic cannon. 

With Batman recruiting the "others" as they're described in the trailer, a super team is formed to defeat the deadly foe Steppenwolf. Wonder Woman seems to be leading the charge but no sign of Superman who "died" at the end of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Let's hope they keep images of his reappearance a surprise leading up to its release on November 17.

WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh. Macool looks like she stepped out of the pages of a Wonder Woman comic with a suit …

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:

Poison Ivy's Rebirth From Child to Sexed-Up Adult on 'Gotham' Covered in New Featurette

The wacky world of Fox's Gotham has long embraced its brand of crazy. "Anything goes," seems to be the motto as the show has tried to fill in the blanks of a pre-Batman Gotham City. Besides making the future Commissioner Gordon an erratic hot-head, his future wife a sociopath, and brought back a villain from the dead, the latest stunt involves aging-up a teen Ivy Pepper magically into an adult to use her powers as a seductress.
Executive producer Ken Woodruff explained this creepy premise to THR: We made the change for two reasons: The character Ivy in the comics, one of her greatest powers is the power of seduction. Everyone was much more comfortable with that with an older actress as opposed to a teenager. We want to explore that classic, canonical power of Ivy. And we didn't just make her older with that attack. When she's changed and transformed, there's a real character change as well. She'll still have some of the same traits, but she'll be much d…

An Artist Will Get His Revenge in The Post-WWII Original Graphic Novel SIMON SAYS

Image Comics announces an all-new, original graphic novel Simon Says by Andre R. Frattino and Jesse Lee which will paint a post-World War II Europe in a scarlet shade of revenge this September.


Simon Says is a drama-filled, crime noir story that follows a former artist to the Führer who hunts down and seeks justice upon the Nazis he witnessed murder his friends and loved ones during the war. It is an original graphic novel inspired by true events and by a real-world Holocaust survivor, Simon Wiesenthal, an artist who lost his family and took justice into his own hands.
"Simon Says is about an innocent and gentleman, an artist, whose family and life are destroyed by a real-world event. Not something sci-fi or fanciful, but something that has happened and could happen again. In that way, it's the story of any of us, and how we would respond if who we were and what we had were lost,” said Frattino. "The real-life, famed Nazi hunter, Simon Wiesenthal, was quoted as once sayin…
