[Pic of the Week from CostumeCraze]
One of your favorite posts is the hideous collection of Watchmen movie costumes, but now you can dress up in "sexy" Iron Man 2 armor from Costume Craze. It kind of loses the point of wearing armor if you strap on knee-high boots, since they just shoot you in the knee caps. Although, the company also has a "Whiplash" costume which looks OK on someone with a good body, but there's always some big boy who decides to wear a costume three sizes too small and ruin things for the rest of us. On with the news...
- Despite the failure of Heroes, two new superhero shows are coming. NBC's The Cape, about an ex-cop who becomes a superhero to vidicate his reputation, and ABC's No Ordinary Family which has Michael Chiklis (Fantastic Four) as the father of a superhero team. While this season will be a bad time for sci-fi network shows, but a bumper crop of superhero shows. Is this a sign of good things to come, or a remake of The Greatest American Hero? Since they're both dramas, probably not.

- David Goyer, one of the co-writers of The Dark Knight, is writing the script for the new Superman film titled Man of Steel. This will usher in a trend of movies named after tag lines like "The World's Greatest Superheros" instead of Fantastic Four and "Webslinger" instead of Spider-man.
