As Deadpool continues to break box-office records, we’ve got even more goodies, in the form of some far-out concept art, from the Marvel mutant blockbuster. Also in today’s Movie Morsels, the latest from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, The Angry Birds Movie, and more!
Super-cool alternate designs for Deadpool‘s deadly little Negasonic Teenage Warhead have arrived online. Artist Joshua James Shaw issharing his concept art on his website, including pics of Wade Wilson himself. Turns out that ol’ Warhead was originally more punk/goth/riot grrrl than emo, before director Tim Miller decided to go with a look more reminiscent of Xavier School’s comic-book uniforms (of which I’m hoping we’ll see lots more in X-Men: Apocalypse)…
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
And speaking of dark sensibilities… Three new TV spots have arrived for Batman v Superman: Real Men Don’t Wear Briefs, featuring the two glowering title characters from director Zack Snyder…
You can see if Ben Affleck, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, and Gal Gadot have the goods as Bruce Wayne, Lex Luthor, Alfred, and Wonder Woman when Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice bows on March 25 in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D.
The Angry Birds Movie
Hang in there, Angry Birds fans. Validation of your all-encompassing obsession is on its way, in the form of the self-explanatory The Angry Birds Movie.
