First Look: Stills From The Dark Knight Returns Animated Film!!!
This will be the animation EVENT of the decade! I have been eagerly anticipating this ever since they did an homage to Frank Miller and ROTDK on Batman The Animated Series;
For those of you not in the know, The Dark Knight Returns is set in a near future where Batman is retired and Gotham City has slid into a dystopian state ruled by a gang of hooligans called The Mutants. The 55-year old Bruce Wayne is forced to don the cape once more, this time partnering with a female Robin to not only stop the Joker but keep the peace when the city falls into chaos after being hit by an electromagnetic pulse.
The animated feature will be released in two parts with the first expected to hit home video in the fall of 2012 and the second the spring of 2013. Peter Weller (pictured first) will provide the voice of Batman/Bruce Wayne, Ariel Winter will be voicing Robin, and David Selby (pictured above) is also part of the cast. It is being directed by Jay Oliva, who storyboarded Zack Snyder's upcoming Superman movie Man of Steel, from a script by Bob Goodman.
One of The Villains in Iron Man 3 is.... NORMAN OSBORN?!?
Actually, it's actor James Badge Dale ("The Departed," TV's "24") as Eric Savin. In the comics, Savin is a soldier who is gravely injured in a land mine explosion and reanimated as a cyborg called Coldblood-7. It looks like the movie merges his character from the books with the Iron Patriot armor. Would've been cooler if it was Osborn.

Yes, It's Really a Block of Wood...
These stunningly realistic wooden figures by Bruno Walpoth represent human beings in their rawest form, soft skin carved out of hard wood, every wrinkle and detail carved in while evidence of tool work remains when they’re inspected up close.

Great Tributes to Adam Yauch!
When I heard of Adam Yauch's (MCA of The Beastie Boys) passing, I was devastated. I can distinctly remember hearing "Fight For Your Right" for the first time at my first girl-boy party in the sixth grade, and thinking; "what is this? It's incredible!" And that was it - I was hooked for life!
I'm extremely thankfull for getting to see them live not once, but twice, and would like to say thank you to Adam and the boys for enriching my life in such a way. These artists have also paid their condolences in the form of these fantastic tributes that I found on Creep Machine. Rest in peace, my brotha!
