The Perfect Tee For Comic Con

This tee is called Super Cuts and it has to be the perfect tee for those of you headed to the San Diego Comic Con this year. Now your task is to see if you can figure out who these famous superheroes are from left to right. Ready? Go! See below for answers. You can pick up this tee from J!NX for $17.99 (couple more bucks extra for 2XL-3XL) plus shipping. BTW, these still haven’t changed their shipping policy to Hawaii that I’ve ranted about here.

New Jon Wye Shirt Designs

Remember our friend Jon Wye? Sure you do, we featured him in Indie Tee Spotlight #14 and we did a video review of his Homemaker leather belt. Well, Jon Wye is back, this time with a ton of new tee designs! 

He has got 6 new designs, in both men and women’s tees. Included in his most recent release is a tee that he is calling the “the FIRST stylish Washington, DC.” Here’s what he had to say about the appropriately named Washington D.C. tee:

Most DC shirts come from the National Mall right next to the Hot Dog vendors, and don’t really reflect the city!

This new DC shirt hits the mark. The rigid letters spelling out “Washington” represent the more, well, rigid elements of the city… business… POLITICS! And “DC” along with the outside of the whole graphic are coated in a goo. The GOO is the rest of us, the underbelly, the coating which makes DC fun.

To go along with the DC tee, Jon also released a couple of other fun and neat designs. I especially like that Fighting Rooster and Richie Rich  tee! You can buy these tees here.

Superman Trilogy Coming?

Now I know that in the past I’ve mentioned that I think Bryan Singer should be allowed to continue the Superman series he started with 2006’s Superman Returns, but, the chances of that happening is looking pretty grim. Out goes Singer’s Man of Steel and in come Millar’s Superman trilogy, possibly. 

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for Singer continuing what he started, but if Millar were given a chance to reboot or re-invent the franchise I would be all for it. Mark Miller, just in case  you’re not familiar with him, is the man behind Wanted, you know that summer blockbuster with Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy. Millar actually wrote the original Wanted comics and has done a ton of work within the different comic universes, including the big guns, DC and Marvel. 

In 2003 he wrote the critically acclaimed Superman: Red Sun, the premises of which was built on the question of what would things be like if Superman were raised in the Soviet Union. I wouldn’t care to see Soviet Superman on the big screen, but I do think that Millar has the potential to bring something new to the Superman franchise and in effect re-energize it.

Having said that, MIllar has gone on record in a recent interview with G4 and has said that he already has “plans” to make a Superman trilogy, that would be shot back to back much like the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

“I’ve had this plan for like 10 years for a big three-picture Superman thing, like a big Lord of the Rings epic, starting over from scratch again with a seven-hour Superman story. And hopefully release them one year after another,” continued Millar. “If it works out, we’ll have to start shooting next summer.”

Millar has even been reported as saying his vision of Superman is:

“Superman for the 21st Century, keeping everything we adore, but starting from scratch and making the kids love it as much as the 30-somethings.”

So it looks like the Superman saga continues. And let’s not forget, Mark Millar is a writer and not a movie director, so there is a possibility of Singer and Millar working together. The possibility of this happening, especially with Singer’s already existing vision, is slight to zero. But imagine for a moment what a creative combination that would make, much like the Nolan-Goyer combo they’ve got going for the Batman franchise. 

Cher Next Catwoman?

The Telegraph (UK Newspaper) reported yesterday that Christopher Nolan is seeking Cher to play Catwoman in the final installment of Nolan’s Batman trilogy, provisionally named The Caped Crusader. 

First of all, WTF. Cher? Are you out of your mind, Mr. Nolan, sir. Understandably your vision of the Batman universe thus far has been spot on. You’ve masterfully rebooted characters that Joel Schumacher so easily butchered in the 90’s. But Cher? According to the Telegraph, a studio exec has mentioned that Nolan would like Cher to portray Catwoman as a “vamp in her twilight years.” Even though I loved Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, the though of Cher playing Catwoman is very hard to swallow. Please don’t fuck this up Warner Bros..

A more appropriate choice, would definitely have to be Angelina Jolie. It has already been reported that Ms. Pitt has inquired about the role and is very interested. Would Ms. Pitt make a great Selina Kyle? I think hell yeah. I think she would own that role.

Having said that, does the Nolan series really need Catwoman in the final film? Sure she brings name recognition but she’s been done so many times before, sometimes good (Michelle Pfeiffer) and sometimes horrible (Halle Berry). Nolan, how about you resurrect other worthy Batman villains. If you’re keen on having a female baddy then how about Harley Quinn? Or how about Hugo Strange or even Bane (Schumacher’s version = ewwww)?
