This Week in Geek 2/26/2010 - Sexy Iron Man and Other Superhero News

[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...
  1. 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.
    ODDSMAKERS: What are the odds that Michael Chiklis, aka The Thing, will cry?
  2. 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.
    TOSSUP: Will Man of Steel be The Dark Knight or Superman Returns?

  1. What is it with the sexy superhero outfit trend? Iron Man?

    1. Sounds pretty crappy. It's hard to do superheroes right without looking stupid.
    2. Well, he's a good writer, so I think it'll be good. TOSS-UP: I choose "The Dark Knight."
