ABOVE: Ever wondered what would happen if some of your favorite super heroes and villains were forced to pose the way the typical female character is? Some folks over at The Line is Drawn did a redo on some female-centric comic covers and brought the sexy back for the dudes. (more…)
You like that? It could be yours if you go to the midnight IMAX screening of Iron Man 3 at your local IMAX theater, according to Screen Rant. The poster was designed by comic book artist Jock (The Losers, Hellblazer), and is the latest in 12:01 poster series, which previous has included unique works honoring the release Real Steel, The Amazing Spider-Man, and Frankenweenie.
In other Iron Man 3 new, Marvel Studios head honcho and Iron Man 3 producer Kevin Feige recently talked to the LA Times about Tony Stark’s mind set going into the movie, and where the character’s head is at this point in his story arc. Here’s what Feige had to say:
“He’s experienced things now that frankly was a wake-up call. You don’t have gamma-powered strength that anger can bring about. You don’t have super-soldier serum flowing through your veins. You’re not a thunder god from Asgard. You’re just a guy. And Tony doesn’t necessarily like to be reminded of those kinds of things because he likes to be at the top of the food chain.
“Where we meet Tony, he wants to be in that suit all the time, and he wants a lot of suits around him. And just as we sort of learn that’s his issue, we blow them all up and take him out of that comfort zone.
“We wanted to take Tony to a place that he hadn’t been since the first half of the first ‘Iron Man’ film, which is, essentially, by himself without his money, without his toys, without his gadgets, with just his mind, his intellect. We wanted to do that in a big climactic fashion by literally taking away everything that is near and dear to him, as symbolized in that mansion crumbling down into the Pacific.”
In other Iron Man 3 developments, a new featurette has been released, and it outlines just how Extremis comes into play in the film and how it factors into The Mandarin’s (Ben Kingsley) master plan. Included is commentary by director Shane Black, star Robert Downey Jr., and new head henchman James Badge Dale. Press play below (courtesy of Collider):
Finally, from the people who have more time on their hands than I do (and Geeks Are Sexy), a break down of just how much it costs to be Tony Stark. Enjoy!

Now that Sony is finally working on a CG animated Popeye film we’re left to speculate just what Popeye is going to look like, hopefully it’s like this. Created by Lee Romao, this version of Popeye is the furthest thing away from Robin Williams live action film of the early 80s’ and well suited for what Sony should be going with now. Hey Sony, if your reading this, hire the man. [Geek Tyrant]

Dr. Teeth, Animal, Sgt. Floyd Pepper, Janice and Zoot, the one and only Electric Mayhem -before Lips came in and ruined it with his trumpet. Douglas Holgate made this kick ass looking tour poster that looks to be pulled from our parents closets. This must have been an early in their career though since Zoot is nowhere to be seen, either that or this was during the first of his many drug-related offences. [The House Of Skullduggery]
Hit the jump for the Black Cat, The Avengers as Dragons and MOAR
The Interwebz, where nerd art runs wild. Oh, and they draw a lot too. Sure, sometimes it’s 50 new rage faces (please stop by the way) or pictures of ligers. Why is it always ligers?
Other times? Oh those other times… it;s fantastic and magical drawings that make the imagination soar and the geek spirit reach new heights.
It’s time for a Nerd Art Dump.
ABOVE: The next time you watch Masters of the Universe remember to see it from the other perspective. He-man wasn’t the big hero that he appeared to be on TV. He was actually just another muscle bound jock picking on poor skinny Skeletor, trying to make his way through the day. What a jerk. [Geek Diaper]
