In a move that wouldn’t even register as a big deal for any other company, DC Comics has trademarked a Nightwing logo for the purposes of merchandising. Described as “Nightwing” emblazoned on a bat, not unlike the character’s current New 52 logo (above), this logo has been trademarked for use on clothing, accessories and toys. Basically, everything from t-shirts to Christmas ornaments. (more…)
Although The Amazing Spider-Man 2 isn’t hitting theaters until May 2014, it looks like marketing is already starting to pimp out the film.
A meetup has been put together by tumblr for this Friday night for fans. No details have been given aside from the time and location and “basic pizza” written on the invitation. But the more interesting part of it all is that it’s our first look at the official Spidey logo for this film.
Hit the jump to see the invite.
A yellow jacket, that is. And the lack of April O’Neil in yellow wasn’t the biggest complaint we heard yesterday when we saw the first images of Megan Fox filming for The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. That honor goes to the fact it’s Megan Fox AS April O’Neil, followed by her not being a red head/them choosing not to make her a red head.
What will we find to complain about today? Somehow, I feel confidant just the fact it’s Megan Fox will get most of the ire, but maybe some of you are disappointed they’re going with a jacket over the whole yellow jumpsuit.
Personally, my feelings about Fox being cast as O’Neil aside, the jacket’s a good choice. It’s exactly the kind of nod to her most iconic outfit fans appreciate without having to see a movie where the starring actress is wearing, basically, a hazmat suit.
The film’s logo has also been revealed via a snapshot of one of the one set chairs, and it confirms the title will indeed be Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Emphasis on the turtles.
What do you think of the logo? Kind of a generic, reptilian look, isn’t it?
LOGO and Joss Whedon are teaming up to run a marathon of Whedon’s top 10 Buffy the Vampire Slayer episodes tomorrow, Saturday May 19th, beginning at 10 AM.
In celebration of the marathon, LOGO has posted 5 episodes on their website that highlight, “studs”. That’s right ladies and gents, we’re not just fixating on sexy cosplay girls this week, we’re helping everybody get their oogle goodies.
As for the episodes on Whedon‘s list, well, they contain few surprises, with The Body, Once More with Feeling, and Hush perpetually included on any list focused on the best of what used to be Whedon’s most well known work. The full list is below, and though I scratch my head a little at Restless and wonder how on earth the somewhat controversial, but brilliant for its ambition, Normal Again failed to make the list, that is the fun of these things — there is no 100% correct list.
Whedon’s Top 10 episodes of Buffy:
Prophecy Girl, Innocence, Becoming Part II, The Wish, Doppelgangland, Hush, Restless, The Body, Once More With Feeling, Conversations with Dead People
The Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell produced remake of Evil Dead, directed by Fede Alvarez, will soon be underway. Here’s a first look at the NEW logo (pictured above and below).
There’s been lots of negative and positive feedback from fans of the original film franchise, but lots of people are on the side of excitement for the Diablo Cody written feature (myself included). We recently reported on a synopsis for the reboot that will give you some insight on what everyone can expect from the reboot:
The “new spin” is the motivation behind the trip, with the lead character taking his younger sister to the family’s cabin to help her kick her drug addiction. Without her drugs she becomes insane and difficult to control, which makes it impossible to see that she’s actually possessed.
The worst part, though, is that one of the friends unleashes the demons by deciphering the Book of the Dead and reading the passages aloud. (Yeah, because just some kid would know how to read ancient text. Sigh.) The only way I can get behind this is if the film references the original (meaning this is a new group of kids in the exact same cabin) and Bruce Campbell cameo’s as “Ash” (who has now aged quite considerably).
Special thanks to Bloody Disgusting for getting the shot.
HIT THE JUMP for a large view
Logopalooza! Logos Revealed for ‘The Dark Knight Rises’, ‘Man of Steel’ & ‘The Amazing Spider-man.’ Plus, First Look at ‘The Avengers’!
At the Licensing International Expo in Las Vegas (Yes, it’s an actual thing.) the studios are set to premiere the promotional logos for their big, upcoming movies. Of course, the movies requiring the much-hyped advertising and licensing are the comic book movies and we’ve got sneak peaks of their logos. Are they amazing, new and different? No, but hey, it’s the beginning of the promotional push for films like Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight Rises, Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel and Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man, so you know, be at least a little excited.
In addition to these revealed logos, Marvel has released the first promotional image for The Avengers. It shows the whole team in costume, and it’s our first real look at Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye. The Hulk doesn’t look all that different from any other time we’ve seen him, but whatever, it’s only their first image. Check out the new logos and the first team picture of The Avengers in the gallery below,
All right, so the logo images are a little fuzzy as it appears some one just snapped these slyly with their camera phone. I’d expect to be seeing some official releases soon. But how snazzy is that Avengers pic? Team’s lookin’ good, right?
This is the working logo for the new Wonder Woman television series from NBC, their filming the pilot in L.A. right now. Let’s take a look. They kinda hide the “WW” in the bird logo, that’s not bad. There is just red in blue in the name, where’s the white? I’m not really feeling the stars in the “O’s.”
What the hell font is that they are using and why make the name wavy? The font looks like some limp seventies throwback. I have always seen Wonder Woman as strong, that wavy look doesn’t project strength. The bird doesn’t look majestic enough to me, there should be a sense of royalty coming from it.
The “W” isn’t capitalised, which makes me think someone feels Wonder Woman isn’t “wonderful” enough for that tiny shard of grammatical respect. You would think that if Wonder Woman is the head of an enormous company, that she would want that company logo to scream strength, power, respect.
This logo doesn’t project any of those things. What’s your take on this logo? Am I full of it or maybe my male perspective is tainting my view? Time to speak out in the comments section below ladies!
The Wonder Woman television series from David E. Kelley that almost didn’t happen is bumping along and here’s who’s playing along. Elizabeth Hurley would will be playing villianess, Veronica Cale., Tracie Thoms as Etta Candy are in there some where and Pedro Pascal as a friendly police officer., Cary Elwes, star of The Princess Bride and Saw will be playing the CEO of Themyscria Industries. Oh man, this is a lot of casting for characters I’ve never even heard of. All of whom will be joining Adrianne Palicki, our new Diana of Themyscria.
Logo and casting aside. What I’m even more afraid of? That this Wonder Woman running a company in man’s world, trying to find herself, moping over a lost love bullshit will be terrible and everyone will love it. Then we’ll have this new versions of the Amazon princess and no one will remember what a rad, ass-kicking lady she is.
