Sticking with Marvel, there’s a bunch of new pics from the film, which we in Australia get on April 25! Woo hoo! It’s also the Anzac Day public holiday so he opening day will do gangbusters. Many more pics (43 actually) right here.
Finally, here’s a preview of this week’s Nightwing #8 by Kyle Higgins and Eddy Barrows. I’m not a fan of DC’s New 52, but I do like Dick Grayson, AKA the original Robin, AKA Nightwing, although his new red costume does remind me of Chris O’Donnell in Batman and Robin. See what I mean?
Here’s the official lowdown of the ish.
The “Night of the Owls” has begun! Following the shocking revelation (SPOILER ALERT!) that Dick Grayson was originally intended to be a Talon, Nightwing must work to save both his name and Mayor Hady from The Court of Owls’ assassin targeting him. But when Grayson arrives to City Hall only to find innocent blood has already been shed, will he have failed his mission before it’s even truly begun? And how does turn-of-the-century era Gotham factor into all of this?
