Sunday Trending Topics: Marvel Assembly, DC Design

Interesting coincidence that today’s top two posts are both about character design. On the comic side we have copious amounts of artwork from DC’s Designing the New DCU 52 Panel, on the tv/film side we finally have all the pieces of the Avengers film character concepts put together into one giant Assembly of Avengers.

Lots Of Art From DC’s Designing The New DCU 52 Panel

During today’s Designing the New DCU 52 panel at SDCC, attendees were invited to see how characters are designed to how they end up looking in the final pages of a comic book. Below, take a look at the art we showed during this presentation for such titles as ALL-STAR WESTERN, ANIMAL MAN, BATGIRL, BIRDS OF PREY, THE FLASH, GREEN ARROW, THE SAVAGE HAWKMAN, I, VAMPIRE, LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES, RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS, SUICIDE SQUAD, SUPERBOY, SUPERGIRL, SUPERMAN and TEEN TITANS.

Event fatigue seems to be setting for Dan DiDio who is reaching manic levels on the podium right now, but he thinks people on the flor are feeling better and better about the DC Relaunch.

There are two Snow White films on the way, and one of them, Snow White and the Hunstman stars Kristen Stewart as the titular pale and not-necessarily-that-interesting victim of a stepmom’s persecution. The film was given a panel at Comic-Con’s Hall H this afternoon and unfortunately, I had dirty hair that didn’t urgently need cleaning but, heck, it was as good a time as any. One of the best things about my hotel bathroom is that it doesn’t have the cast of Snow White and the Hunstman in it, pretending that anybody should be excited about the film.
