‘Superman Classic’ by Robb Pratt

Posted 9 years ago by Animated Shorts

Rob Pratt is a veteran Disney animator who recently created this awesome (but short) Superman animated film aptly called Superman Classic. He used music from the old Superman serials, the voice of Superboy from the short-lived TV series, and animated it himself with a couple friends. The results are pretty amazing. Well done, Rob.

Henry Cavill Cast as Superman

Posted 9 years ago by Movies

Henry Cavill is Superman

English actor Henry Cavill has been cast as Superman in the upcomming Christopher Nolan produced, Zack Snyder directed reboot. Apparently he’s almost played a lot of huge roles, like James Bond, Batman, and even Superman in the failed McG version. This is probably why I’ve never heard of him, but I’ll admit, he looks the part.

A lot of bloggers are whining that Henry isn’t from America, but I’m sure he’ll do fine. Christian Bale is British and crazy and he made a pretty awesome Batman.

What do you think of this casting?

Indianapolis Superhero Museum Auction

Superhero Auction

Good news, rich folk. The short lived Indianapolis Superhero Museum will be auctioning off all it’s memorabilia this week on January 22nd. The museum, which was closed before I ever even found out about it, was mainly filled with Superman and Batman collectibles. Some of the rarer items up for auction include costumes from the 50’s show The Adventures of Superman, a costume actually worn by Christopher Reeve, and even one from Lois and Clark.

This was supposedly the second largest Superman collection in the world. My guess is that the Super Museum in Metropolis, Illinois holds top honors.

You can read more about the auction at Antique Helper and view a ton of photos of at Auction Zip. I’ll gladly be accepting donations of any goods purchased if you get horrible buyers remorse after realizing you just bought a set of tights worn by Dean Cain.

Mondays are good days for superhero art. Francos Spagnolo created these amazing minimilist DC Heroes and we found them via Geek-Art.net. Batman and Captain Marvel are my favorites, but they’re all awesome. It’s amazing how powerful the lines and shapes are that were chosen by Francos.

I need these in my office.
