We have the reveal of the official Man of Steel one-sheet poster.

First off, what’s up with the lens flare? Was there not enough on the Star Trek Into Darkness poster so they decided to pick up the slack? And what the heck, Supes cuffed? Obviously he is allowing himself to be imprisoned… but why?

Perhaps if the trailer wasn’t so un-Superman tonaly we might be able to read some kind of noble ‘self sacrifice’ from this… but instead it’s just more ‘oh, let’s be all dark and gritty!’ instead of, you know, having an actual Superman movie.

Superman Returns was too soft. Man of Steel is going to be too hard. We are Goldilocks waiting for something just right…

CinemaBlend has new pictures from the set of Thor: The Dark World and for a moment I thought I was looking at someone’s model minatures.

Seriously, model minatures.

There is also a picture of Eccleston as Malekith, the dots are kinda funny, I’m thinking that they are for some CG to be done in Post. I hope so, cause they are kinda weird.

ComicBookMovie.com has some more set pictures from The Wolverine but the interesting thing about this is all the comments. A lot of complaints about the fact that Wolverine hasn’t been shown in costume/uniform. Why all the hate?

1) This is post X3 and apparently he was going to Japan for a funeral before all heck broke loose, I can totally see him not bothering to drag his leather get up especially if the X-Men might be completely disbanded by this point.

2) If it’s the yellow spandex they are talking about, yeah, even Stan Lee admitted (and I wish I had the link to it) that you can draw this stuff on characters, but not actually put it on real people. Truer words, folks, truer words. Sure, some of the costumes work out, I’ve seen some good cosplayers, but with some, no matter how much effort they put into it, it just comes out looking, well, stupid. And since you can’t have half a costumed team, the leather look is perfectly fine to me.

Oh, I will admit, the leather jacket with the yellow stripes from Origins… one of the best things about that movie. That’s how you pay homage to the original costumes, not by actually making them wear it.

Fox released the new teaser one-sheet for The Wolverine and I snagged it thanks to CinemaBlend. Now, Fox has had a bad run of X-Men posters lately, I mean, all of their FC posters were bad photo-shops and completely devoid of any imagination. But with The Wolverine… I think they have a winner.

As CinemaBlend pointed out, in this still from The Wolverine, Logan is sporting bone claws.

Now, we’re pretty sure Magneto isn’t in The Wolverine. If McKellen has been tapped for this movie, we would all know by now, and I doubt him losing his metal ala the comics is something that would be more than a cameo anyway.

So that leaves flashback…

But why? At first I thought ‘they really need to bring in more Origin stuff?’ but then it occured to me that he’s not so much in a cave but a pit. This is probably related to the scenes where he is in that POW looking camp. Odds are this is background/setup as to why he’s in Japan and attending a funeral, probably of someone he met at this moment in time.

So I’m cool with this.

Random thought: Would it be cool if this was actually the Easter Egg, Logan trapped in a cave with bone claws and Jean comes to save him but Logan is all “you’re dead”… tantalizing… but yeah, not gonna happen.

Thanks to Bleeding Cool, and several other news outlets, we have the first official image from The Wolverine sporting Hugh Jackman as the titular character.

A friend of mine pointed out that they seem to be going away from Wolvie’s trademarks. The swept back hair went away in Origins: Wolverine (which could be explained by it being an ‘early’ Wolvie story) but now his sideburns have seem to gone too. So this is becoming less Wolverine and more Guy with Shiny Toothpicks.

Also, I love Hugh, I do, but he’s showing his age here and no amount of airbrushing abs and veins can cover that.
