Real life versions of the Court of Owls masks were given away by DC Comics at the San Diego Comic Con International. To lucky participants who joined the DC Comics panel discussion. If you are one the less fortunate like me who did not go you can find these masks already being sold through eBay. If you don’t know about Gotham City’s secret society let me brief you a bit. The Court of Owls an ancient conspiracy that has controlled Gotham City for centuries. They are a violent cabal who use architecture and murder to wield political influence throughout history. They employ a breed of highly trained assassins known as Talons. The leaders of the organization appear to be human and wear owl masks on their faces. The rest of the court, on the other hand, are mutated and appear to actually be human/owl hybrids. Their owl-like distorted faces, long claws, and their eating style prove this. The Court of Owls notices billionaire philanthropist Bruce Wayne announces plans to rebuild and reshape Gotham City for the future. And plan to kill him. This would make another really great dark movie I would definitely go see! Check out the picture of Anthony Bourdian sporting his mask below.
So far this has to be my favorite LEGO statue ever! Found at the San Diego Comic Con, featuring a classic all black Catwoman built entirely by LEGO bricks. Looks to me it could possibly be inspired by the original Bill Finger/Bob Kane Catwoman concept. What do you think? does anyone know who the LEGO master build who painstakingly pieced this lovely feline creature together? would love to know!

Check out the exclusive San Diego Comic Con poster for Marvel’s new short film entitled Item 47. Directed by Marvel co-president Louis D’Esposito. The short follows young couple Lizzy Caplan and Jesse Bradford as they recover one of the lost alien weapons and try to figure out how it works. The two become crazy over the weapon and the only conclusion they come up with is using it for evil purposes and the two fall into a life of crime. You can download the free Avengers Second Screen app from the iTunes store, which will provide a series of clues. Follow the trail properly and it will lead to a screening that evening. If you are like me and can’t be in San Diego the short will be available on September 25, 2012 on The Avengers DVD. Which you can pre-order through me below!
