Munroe Discusses DYLAN DOG Differences

It's a familiar refrain for comics-to-film fans: when adapting a comic for film, alterations must be made.

Kevin Munroe, director of Dylan Dog: Dead of Night recently discussed the changes made to the popular Italian comic book character to adapt it as an American film. Credit due Munroe who talks frankly about the changes that were made, how they serve the story of the film, and which elements of the comic he refused to alter (like Dylan's VW Bug).

CAPTAIN AMERICA'S Costume Described

JoBlo.com has seen the design for the combat costume worn during the World War II era in the upcoming Captain America film.

What they describe sounds more the military-style costume seen in Ultimates or on the covers of the recent Captain America: Reborn.

Instead of a mask, Cap will reportedly wear M1 Army style head-gear with some face/eye protection. The white "A" is present on the front but apparently no wings appear on the sides (although the Reborn model had some wings painted on the helmet). They also say the blue color used is not as vibrant as it is in the comics.

Reportedly he still wears a white star on his chest, although it is less prominent than in the comics. The writer goes on to describe the chest piece: "The costume is still split horizontally through the middle with blue on top and red and white stripes on the bottom. But instead of stripes, it's actually just a white base with two red utility straps acting as stripes. These straps affix to a metal loop at the midpoint of the chest and a black strap extends up to the shoulders from that point."

There's blue shoulder armor that extends down to the bicep, with white sleeves extending down the rest of the arm. His hands are covered in brown gloves.

The reporter sums up by saying, "The suit actually has a practical WWII military look to it with some of the obvious Captain America flourishes that we would expect. It's hard to really pass judgment on a costume until you see it properly lit, in motion and doing what it's meant to do. But based on what I saw, I'm pretty impressed with how they were able to adapt the costume for the film."

He also says the shield is pretty much the disc-shaped one we've come to know and love.

Destroyer model from THOR, photographed during a tour of Marvel Studios.

THOR's Destroyer Model Photo

Remember that tiny photo of The Destroy, purported to be part of the Thor movie shoot that went online a few weeks ago? Well the Marvel Movies group at Facebook has uncovered a close-up look at a model for the character. The image was snapped during a tour of the Marvel Studios offices in L.A. and provides a good look at the details of the model.

 

 

KICK-ASS Joining X-MEN: FIRST CLASS?

There's a rumor afoot that director Matthew Vaughn's Kick-Ass leading man Aaron Johnson may be circling the X-Men: First Class movie.

Filmonic.com floated the idea in a report that is largely speculative.

At the root of the speculation is a somewhat interesting paparazzi photograph from ContactMusic. The photo shows Vaughn and Johnson, along with actor James McAvoy taken on a London street. Now, as regular readers know, it was revealed on Friday that McAvoy has been cast in First Class as Professor X.

So it's no surprise that Vaughn would have been meeting with him, but what about Johnson. Why was he there, with the director and the star of First Class. Could it be that Vaughn is considering Johnson (who acquitted himself nicely as the lead actor in Kick-Ass) for a prominent role in the Fox's Marvel Mutant reboot?

Speculation online is that Johnson could play young Scott Summers in the film. While we don't actually know the line-up of First Class, the comics also featured Iceman and the Beast.

What do you think, Maniacs? Do we like Johnson for any young mutant roles in FIRST CLASS? Post your comments below...

New SCOTT PILGRIM Trailer Is Up!

The drive to get 100,000 people to like Scott Pilgrim vs The World was a success. The Facebook fan page for the film hit the mark early this morning and, as promised, the studio posted the all new trailer.

You can watch the low-res below, non-embeddable, craptastic version on Facebook or check out the also-no-embeddable but high-def version on Apple.com.

Earlier this morning, director Edgar Wright revealed to fans via twitter that MPAA has settled on a not-unexpected rating for the film.

"I hope you appreciate that Scott Pilgrim is rated PG-13 for 'Stylized Violence, Sexual Content, Language & Drug References'. Makes me smile," Wright wrote to his followers.

In related news, a fan in attendance at the MCM Expo in London snapped photos of six banners from the film depicting the seven evil ex-boyfriends that Michael Cera must fight throughout the film. The pictures are low-quality camera-phone images but still give you another glimpse into the movie.

If you're in the UK, you'll soon be able to purchase the Scott Pilgrim app for your iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad. The app will allow you to read all six volumes of Bryan Lee O'Malley's outstanding graphic novel series and will apparently offer Volume One of the comic for free. No word if Oni Press plans to distribute the app in the U.S.

iron man 2 keeps on rockiing-

the walking dead- I can't wait to see this- I'm surprised that it is even casting extras in my state.

Thor-- I'll wait for a trailer

Captain America- same as thor I'll wait for a trailer

x-men first class- I really dont care much about this type of xmen movie- A good traielr may change my mind we will have to wait and see

Thor, Captain America, and X-Men all sound good to me. I like Captain America's costume details there. They are on the right track with this. The Destroyer still looks awesome. :D

Dylan Dog sounds like it's coming along well. A few minor changes won't hurt. It didn't hurt Constantine, and they changed his nationality.

Not much interested in Scott Pilgrim.

jfdavis 5/31/2010 7:04:00 AM

Destroyer looks cool. 

Johnson would be terrible as Cyclops and his feet are too small to be Hank. I'm still not convinced Iceman wil even be in the movie.  If he has a prominent role, I'm guessing as one of the Brotherhood like Toad...

Can't wait for more images from Thor and any images from Cap! Costume sounds cool. I'm sure there will be those that have a hissy because it's not exactly the same as the classic comics costume, but I have no problem with an adaptation.

Speaking of adapting, the Dylan Dog interview sounds interesting. You get to find out the reasons behind why changes were made.

The Destroyer looks pretty bad-ass. I didn't know they were planning on using it in the movie.

The more I see on Scott Pilgrim, the more I'm coming around. I had zero desire at first, but I'm starting to dig it a little.  We'll see as we get closer...

Calibur454 - It's supercool they're doing it in Altanta, especially because it's where the story started in the book.

Soooo stoked for Scott Pilgrim.

hulkster46 5/31/2010 2:23:07 PM

I guess if they keep Cap's costumes has he had it in the Ultimate Avengers movie, I have no trouble with it. But I hope the producers take a tip from the Ultimate Avengers antimated movie, and give Cap the familiar costume he's had since the 1960s. When he was thawed out.

Hi Maniacs,

Just got done a month long 4000 mile journey across our great country. Just landed in NYC, and hope to get back to ranting and raving on the boards here asap! The Cap. Costume sounds perfect, not too cheesey, and more utilitarian, while keeping it's flare.

Can't wait  for The Walking Dead, and it is cool that it's starting in ATL agnt. Cooper.

AND just got done reading Scott Pilgrim:Precious Little Life, and I can say I'm a little more stoked for it than I was before.

gauleyboy420 5/31/2010 2:49:27 PM

BTW, Hulkster, the animated CA had the Ultimate Costume from the comics as well. They updated it in the Ultimate comics after he thawed out, it just didn't look so damn goofy (got rid of those freakin stupid wings)

Duggernaut 5/31/2010 3:27:05 PM

I agree with calibur with his comments but got add a couple more. 

I got to say Im not looking forward Scott Pilgrim as it reminds me of the recent version of speed racer. it looks to weird and i think the story will get lost in the goofy effects. 

As for caps costume I think it makes sense to have cap in fatigues but I hope hes  in his super hero costume at some point as the suit what separates him from any other super power joker.

And you can take that to the bank!

ponyboy76 5/31/2010 4:44:49 PM

I just can't visualize the Cap suit in my head properly so I'll wait for a photo.

I'm definitely looking forward to seeing Scott Pilgrim. I like all the video game style fight scenes and it looks pretty funny.
