New Looks for Doctor Who and The X-Men

The internet is all about two things today, it would seem. That’d be Peter Capaldi’s finally unveiled look for his incarnation of Doctor Who, which looks pretty great. I must say. This is how the BBC see it:

Sporting a dark blue Crombie coat with red lining, dark blue trousers, a white shirt as well as black Dr. Marten shoes, the look was created by Doctor Who costume designer Howard Burden.

Commenting on his costume, Peter Capaldi said: “He’s woven the future from the cloth of the past. Simple, stark, and back to basics. No frills, no scarf, no messing, just 100 per cent Rebel Time Lord.”

The covers are okay if bland, and of course, Wolverine is all veiny and shirtless.

I mean, I get the post apocalyptic feel of the movie’s setting, but all the dark colours are just boring. Fan Bingbing as Blink looks pretty good though. You can see all the covers right here, including Colossus, Warpath, Bishop, Sunspot, Kitty Pryde, a young William Stryker and two versions of the mutant hunting robot Sentinels.

First Looks at Captain America and Emma Frost on Film

Thanks to the Daily Mail, photos from the Captain America film have surfaced online. These show Chris Evans’ stunt double, with a shield that looks just like the glimpse seen in Iron Man 2. The pics also show the 1940s time period in action, with some interesting and probably, Red Skull-linked henchmen on sleek bikes. The film opens next year. Also just released are the first on set photos of January Jones from TV’s Mad Men as X-Men telepath and future Cyclops lover Emma Frost, from the 1960s set X-Men: First Class film. So, there you go. Two pics from two Marvel comics films set in the past.
