You really should have read this book by now.

Spoiler

set up for murder in Moloch’s apartment. The man on fire is a cop.

:rofl::rofl::rofl:


#6

Ah thanks, I actually thought it was from that part of the story but just wanted to make sure :).


#7

I wonder how fat Night Owl will look in the movie…

Good shit with this picture, I’m super hyped for this now.


#8

stating for the record that I was pro-this movie when everyone else on this site was shitcanning it to high heaven

I believe Nite Owl is being redesigned significantly from the comics…Ozymandius too


#9

The pictures have been neat so far, but I’m still maintaining that A. this film is going to be a significant step down from the comic, no matter how well they make it, and B. not every damn comic book has to be made into a movie.

I have to admit, despite my predisposition about the film, that the production looks pretty solid. At least, in spite of the bootleg quality footage.


#11

That was the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen in my whole entire life.


#12

oh wow, that actually looks pretty good


#13

Noooooo, can’t watch youtube at work :-(. Any mirrors?

Comedian looks great, Mrs. Jupiter’s OK, Ozy and Nite Owl look a lot different than they are in the book. Then again this is probably for when they were costumed vigilantes.


#15

Thanks, AG! Here’s a link to a few bigger shots. The film supposedly comes out a year from yesterday.


#16

I really don’t approve of Nite Owl and Ozy’s ‘Batman’-ish looks, I mean I don’t want them to wear colourful outfits or anything, but they seem to be made that way to appeal to the media :confused:


#17

So did you ever watch that leaked footage once you got home?


#18

nite owl revised looks gayer than in the books, the rest look good


#19

I really, really hate that so many superhero movies involve plasticky-looking rubber suits. They look injection-molded, like they were custom-designed to lend themselves to toys and other collectible shit. I didn’t like it in Batman and I don’t like it here.

Actually… no. I completely forgot about it. Is it still up? I’ll have to remind myself to check it out when I get home again.
