More and more we see fan made posters pop up for almost anything these days, here is a brief example on some for the new reboot of Superman, Man Of Steel

This one is my favourite, showing more of Metropolis than Henry Cavill, who plays Superman. Here we can see Lexcorp and all its glory overpower Metropolis. JustHunt

Here we see General Zod, played by Micheal Shannon, this looks very cool, not what it’s actually going to look like but very cool nonetheless. SkinnyGlasses

Not so sure about this one, seeing as Zack Snyder is reinventing the franchise, this as a “Man Of Steel” poster doesn’t work for me. But don’t get me wrong it is still a great poster. Jo7a

We’ve all seen the new images from the set of Man Of Steel showing Mr Cavill in full gear in this pose, well most of us, this poster is a cool representation on that image. I like it, the colours and the mood fit perfectly. JohnathanRudolph

This is another cool poster, this one has Henry Cavill photoshopped into the suit, i like it very well done. Hobo95

This poster we’ve had on our blog before, Fan Made Man Of Steel, and I still love it, simple, evoking, striking in its colours, pose, and execution.

Daniel Moretti does very good work.

There’s no two ways about it, this was copied from the Dark Knight Rises fan made, I posted awhile go here, at first I didn’t like it, then I looked at it again, and still didn’t like it, unfortunately in my opinion it doesn’t work for Superman, however, as everyone is still under the notion of a darker, more intense Superman that Zack Snyder is bringing it does fit his style. alilzeker

Thanks to ForeverGeek for compiling the posters.

Two iconic, uniquely American names team up on this sneaker collaboration.

Superman, the Man of Steel and benchmark for all superheroes, and Converse Chuck Taylor All Star, quite possibly the most popular and most worn sneaker in history.

This new ‘capsule’ sneaker collection comes in two different styles: a blue minimalist pair with Superman ‘S’ logo on the outer ankle of the shoe and a white/red/blue ‘comic book style’ pair that features illustrations of Kal-El doing his thing.

Both sneaker styles feature comic strip artwork of the Man of Steel in action on the inside.

If you ask me, this is a pretty cool collaboration between two American cultural icons.

Nice one!

Just because Im amazing

With the superhero movies being released, the 3 I was most keen on seeing brought to life again were Tom Hardy’s Bane, Henry Cavill’s Superman, and Anne Hathaway’s selina kyle/catwoman.

I must say I’m excited with the overall results. Bane looks phenominal despite outcries of some people. Need I remind people that nobody knew what to think of Heath Ledgers Joker, and look what happened.

So we have some pics of the Kryptonian Wonderboy and Gothams Feline femme fatale.
The pics show closeups of the outfits and wider shots.

The pics of Cavill himself in the suit, don’t really impress me, ill have to see how he pulls off the role in Snyders Man of Steel. Its being produced by Nolan, which is something to look forward to.

But to Nolan, his Catwoman is very different from the others, this is assuming that this is the actual costume. But to see our Beloved Anne in gear driving Batpod/Bat Cycle is quite something.

In short both movies consist of amazing oscar nominated/winning cast members, so we do have something to look forward to (albeit good or horrible)

So ill stay optimistic for now

What are your thoughts on these revelations?

Let us know.

Check out these fantastic artworks by Liam Brazier

Here is an interview with the creator of these awesome artworks:

Can you please tell us about your fascination with pop culture characters?
I’m a product of my generation, I would surmise. I’m creaking on into my thirties now and those big tent-poles of pop iconography were really cementing themselves in every child’s cerebellum during the 80s and 90s. Star Wars, for example, WAS a good part of my younger years not only to me, but to many. When asked to illustrate an image of a coffin I came back with zombies.

That stuff never leaves you, it just sort of sits there in your subconscious infecting everything you do from then on in – it becomes not an entertainment but an education, of sorts. Bottom line; I draw this or I draw that because a) I’m not the best at over-thinking things, and b) I felt like it in that moment. As a writer should ‘write what they know’, an illustrator should draw what they like.

How were these illustrations made? Illustrator?
I suspect if I had ever used Illustrator it may have saved me more than one headache in the past, but no. When I first started dabbling in the geometric ‘style’ about ten years ago it developed out of method; I was carefully, (too) obsessively, scalping out tiny triangles of different colored paper and spray-mounting them onto board – a hugely lengthy process that was just as dull as me explaining it.. never the less, nowadays Photoshop’s triangular lasso tool has simplified things a little as I draw and color each shape, stepping back, checking and adjusting as I go.

Can you tell us a bit about your creative process?
Obviously the style lends itself to certain things. It’s quite ‘hard’ and constructed, so the Star Wars helmets were a good jumping off point, but I’m also drawn to the challenge of more natural forms and the abstract results it often creates (say, Superman’s billowing cape).

I’m incredibly fond of the bizarre intricacies of language too – I thought of the titles for the superhero pieces way before anything visual.

Do you have more pop culture illustrations coming?
I’ve just completed a private commission along similar lines, but people haven’t been shy with suggestions so yes, definitely. Time is my greatest enemy!

Do you have any tips for aspiring illustrators?
As long as you’re aspiring you’re doing it right.

How do you stay creative?
I’m lucky enough to have a day job (illustrating and animating) that panders to my creative craves, but if anything an already sparking brain just adds more to the backlog of ideas I’ll never have time to complete. You can add me to the roster whom have a print button for their head on their Amazon Wish Lists.

Finally, do you have any stories you’d like to share?
I am going to, hopefully, meet the actual Boba Fett (Jeremy Bulloch) this weekend and show him my scribble. Watch out for the disgustingly torn up scraps for sale on eBay Monday, I guess.

Thanks for the interview, Liam. Love your work!

Paul Sizer has created these alternate DC and Marvel Posters.. Re-imaginting the characters in different art styles and historical eras. Very interesting.
