"Here's the quick sketch of my BvS digital drawing. Pencil sketch on procreate, inked and colour in Photoshop.
Was doing a quick sketch on my ipad while waiting for my boy tuition class last weekend. End up doing the quick ink and colour as well. Inspired by one of the episode of Batman brave and the bold when Supes infected by red 'K' and almost crushed Batsy skull if he's not saved by the bell. Yes, I'm with team Superman for sure."

Amid "ridicule" and jokes about "Fat-Man" (predominantly via online forums and heckling on HT's Facebook :p), Hot Toys has since updated their 1/6th-scaled Batman from "Batman v Superman" into this NEW finely svelte worked-out body with more defined abs!
HOT TOYS PRESS: "Hot Toys has been further refining the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice 1/6th scale Batman collectible figure prototype and now features an all-new muscular body and newly tailored Batsuit that accurately capture the strong muscle tone of Batman!"
So what went on at "Harley's Tattoo Parlor" at SXSW? Here are some snaps and video, courtesy of the Suicide Squad Facebook!

I cannot remember when it was exactly, when I stopped my weekly collecting of comicbooks … it might have been nearly a decade since I last stopped my "reservations list" at the comicbook shop I visited once a week on delivery days (or the day after) - not for the lack of interests, no, but for the lack of funds, as my savings had dried up, and I was no longer drawing a monthly salary. Since then I'd survive on trade paperbacks once a while, when my wallet was more forgiving … so my experience with comicbooks sort of "ended" a decade ago, perhaps?
And with that, I am basing my experience with watching Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice today, with my memories of what comicbooks offered a decade back, and I would readily admit having thoroughly enjoyed watching this "comicbook" turned "live action" concept on the silver screen, courtesy of Zack Snyder and his cohorts!
And while the following impressions (I had tweeted on @toysrevil, post-cinema / some typo re-adjusted, fhanks :p) remain spoiler-free, I'd would recommend you approach the film as you would "reading a comicbook", otherwise it might leave you disappointed or worse still, "disillusioned" with the state of DC Extended Universe films to come … ONWARDS!

"#batmanvsuperman works perfectly as a "comicbook superhero" film, providing an instant IN into the #DCEU lore that'll have many more to come!" (Tweet)
"#batmanvsuperman might not appeal to the cerebral-crowd, but tugs at the emotional core of comicbook lovers, tho not necessarily the "fans"." (Tweet)
"While #batmanvsuperman is not a "game-changer" per se, it pushes the genre to another level of entertainment, & fans like me benefit from it." (Tweet)
"#batmanvsuperman "reads" like an issue of a comicbook, with interludes galore, setting up the #DCEU, and with that, makes it top notch, IMHO" (Tweet)
"And while there is no rush to catch #batmanvsuperman unless you want to be in the convo, but watch it you must! And enjoy it "as-is", instead of "what it could have been". Give yourself a chance to be "entertained", and not about your fanboy wishes being sated or not." (Tweet + Tweet)
"And thanks to #batmanvsuperman, I CANNOT WAIT to watch #WonderWoman! That smile when she was in battle? THAT's the WW I want!" (Tweet)
"Directed by Patty Jenkins (Monster), Wonder Woman will be an origin story illustrating the transformation of a young Princess Diana into the greatest female warrior of all time.
She will need some help getting there, though. Preparing her for a world of men are three regal women: Diana’s mother, Queen Hippolyta (Gladiator’s Connie Nielsen), and her two military aunts — General Antiope (Robin Wright) and Antiope’s lieutenant, Menalippe (Force Majeure’s Lisa Loven Kongsli). This trio of immortals is responsible for both raising and training Diana — the only child on this estrogen heavy isle — but they don’t always agree. Hippolyta, a revolutionary leader, longs to shelter her beloved daughter from the outside world, but Antiope, the Amazon responsible for Diana’s training, wants to prepare her. “She is the only child they raised together,” says Jenkins, calling from outside London, where she is deep into the film’s production. “And their love for her manifests in a different way for each of them.”" (Source: Entertainment Weekly)

Teaser for 1/12th-scaled Armored Batman from Mezco Toyz (ONE:12 COLLECTIVE for #BatmanvSuperman: #DawnofJustice)
Mezco Toyz teases their upcoming "ARMORED BATMAN" from their ONE:12 COLLECTIVE series, with the figure based on "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice"!
We first saw this on display at the New York Toy Fair earlier in the year, and seriously, how can anyone NOT do the "Armored Batman" as a toy, right?
These are the available info on the figure so far:
- He has over 32 point of articulation (yes, that means his armor is fully-articulated)
- Fully costumed, featuring cloth cape
- Electronic, battery-powered light-up eyes
- Pre-order is expected to hit May - June 2016
- Final accessories to be announced.
Hot Toys continues their offering of 1/1-scaled Life-Size Collectibles from the upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" movie, with the Ben Affleck's Batman, alongside the previously announced Armored Batman!
HOT TOYS PRESS: "The movie-accurate and realistic life-size collectible will be available in selected markets and stands approximately 1.93m/6.33ft tall (Approx. 2.18m/7.15ft tall with base). It features authentic and detailed likeness of Batman’s lower face, meticulously sculpted replica of the Batsuit with fine detail textures, a fabric cape, and a circular base with light-up function and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice logo.
Your “Batcave” will need the imposing presence of this astonishing Batman life-size collectible to be complete."

Hot Toy "officially" announces the "Batman & Batmobile Cosbaby Collectible Set" from the feature film "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". Do check in with your fav retailer(s) for pricing and availability.
"The Batman Cosbaby stands approximately 9.5cm tall while the Batmobile is approximately 16cm long and the cockpit can be opened to put in the Batman Cosbaby!"
VIDEO DESCRIPTION: "Director Zack Snyder, Director of Photography Larry Fong, ASC, Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill discuss what it was like to shoot several sequences of the film with IMAX cameras and the unbelievable cinematic experience fans will witness." (Info via)
I am exceptionally interested in the "dream sequence" where Batman is in the desert - known as the "Knightmare" sequence - having his mask removed forcibly by Superman … Darkseid's "Omega" logo on the dessert surface is in focus, as well the flying Para-Demons - Niiiice!
