After a month of anticipation, "Treehouse of Horror" binges, and spooky Twitter names, Halloween is finally upon us. This special day means so much to so many people, and one of the greatest joys it gives us is licensed costumes based on comic book properties. Some of them are incredibly detailed and accurate to the source material, some of them are hilariously bad, and some, somehow, manage to be both.
We've rounded up some of the best comics-themed Halloween costumes from this year to provide you with some last minute inspiration for the big night.
To this point, DC Collectibles has been reticent to deliver action figures based on the movie properties Warner Bros. produces based on the DC Comics library. There have been statues and replicas galore, but few actual action figures from DC's in-house collectibles team have been of the cinematic oeuvre. With the DC Cinematic Universe kicking into high gear this year, it's time for the DC Films Premium line to make its debut.
The first figures for the line will include a mash-up of Man of Steel and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice characters, all set to arrive in September. Armored Batman and Superman will represent BVS, with Zod, Faora and Jor-El coming from MoS. Now, I know there probably weren't too many people banging at the gates, begging for more Russel Crowe Jor-El figures, but at least his Kryptonian armor makes him a bit more interesting than any potential Kevin Costner Pa Kent would ever be. That's not a big factor in Jor-El's favor, but the guy's gotta take pluses where he can.
Halloween is just around the corner, and here at ComicsAlliance, and one of the best parts of the month is gearing up for a night of costumes! It’s the one time of year when even people like me who could never cut it in our Best Cosplay Ever feature can drop by the local department store and walk out with the ability to dress up as our favorite characters.
But is that really a good thing? I have my doubts, which is why I’m spending every day taking on the store-bought costumes inspired by our favorite things. Today, we're having a look at a few of the more obscure selections, because tomorrow's Halloween and everyone's going to be sold out of Batman costumes by now.
Not going to lie. I was a little worried about Russell Crowe playing Superman's dad Jor-El after seeing him in a decent chunk of The Man With The Iron Fists, but he turned out to do just fine in Man of Steel. I guess acting alongside a CGI alien dragon horse thing brings out the best in a former Gladiator? Hot Toys seems to have dug him too, revealing an upcoming 1/6 scale Jor-El figure bearing a spot-on Crowe likeness and rocking killer Kryptonian garb, alternate hands and a stylized space rifle.
Superman and General Zod may be the primary brawlers in Man of Steel, but Square Enix isn't stopping at a mere two Kryptonians in its deluxe Play Arts Kai line. Following the release of the Henry Cavill and Michael Shannon toys will be new figures of Jor-El and Faora, bearing the likenesses of actors Russell Crowe and Antje Traue.
The folks over at ComicBookMovie have grabbed seven new images from director Zack Snyder's Man of Steel out of Entertainment Weekly's summer preview issue. They offer fans a slightly clearer look at characters only briefly seen in the trailers: namely Michael Shannon as General Zod and Russell Crowe as Jor-El...
Yesterday was a big day for Man of Steel toy reveals, as Variety, USA Today and Hero Complex all debuted images of Superman, Jor-El and the villainous General Zod across a swath of prominent toy lines including Mattel's 6" Movie Masters and 3...
