Snyder01

Over the past few years, Scott Snyder has rocketed to a position as one of DC's top writers, handling both Batman's origin with Greg Capullo in the pages of "Zero Year" and the high-profile launch of Superman Unchained with Jim Lee. At Comic-Con he sat down to talk to us about how to challenge the Man of Steel on a geopolitical level, the meaning behind the Red Hood Gang and their inspiration, and why wearing a Batman baseball cap made him feel like he was in high school again.

Spoilers for both "Zero Year" and upcoming issues of Superman Unchained follow!

The Hot Toys Booth: ‘Batman ’66′ And ‘Iron Man 3′ [SDCC 2013]

hottoyssdcc2013_main

A few of Hot Toys' recently teased 1/6 scale superhero figures made their way to a full display this weekend at San Diego Comic-Con International. Tony Stark's Iron Man 3 Mark 33 and 38 (a.k.a. "Igor") suits were standing tall in armory-style displays and Batman '66 Batman and Robin were housed inside a glass box with their classic Batmobile. All of the toys are presumably prototypes, so fans can expect a few minor changes before they arrive at retail - especially since none of them have proper pricing info or release dates set in stone just yet. Fans shouldn't let that stand in the way of gawking at the detail and spot-on actor likeness on each figure, though. Get a close look at some of Hot Toys' 1/6 scale figures displayed at SDCC after the cut.
