DeviantArt artist theDURRRRIAN created some wonderful works based on the idea of the Avengers meeting up with Magic: The Gathering. What we have are some gorgeously poignant and familiar characters with a twist that makes me wish there were a comic series based on these illustrations. Check them out after the break.
Marvel’s The Avengers are capable of amazing acts of superheroism. What would it look like if they applied their skills to the very human tradition that is the Olympics? Illustrator scargeear imagines Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow, and the gang as athletes at the 2012 London Olympics, complete with their individual sporting kits and the events that they’d participate in.

Just like Katie Alves, Jangsara has a deft hand when it comes to applying eye shadow. With Joss Whedon’s rollicking superhero blockbuster The Avengers fresh in her mind, the makeup artist from Finland applies eye shadow using the basic colours of each character’s costume. Have a look at her minimalist Avengers eye makeup after the jump.
Being an avid movie watcher, I use the term “movie” to includes both blockbusters and those busters that are somewhat less than blocky. I am constantly waiting on new reels of escapism. Unfortunately, with the film industry going gaga (not of the Lady variety) for 3D and apeshit for reboots and remakes, the offerings are few and far between.
Even though I’m a movie fan and not a film connoisseur, it’s very hard to look forward to anything that doesn’t fit into one of the aforementioned categories. So when prawn1 asked me to make a note of five—yes, Five!—movies that I have been looking forward to seeing this year, it was difficult to list to compile. Who does he think I am? Barry Ronge? However, I have done better than the five he originally asked, and I’ve found not seven, not nine, but a whole ten movies that I would (whether willingly or grudgingly) pay the ridiculous ticket fee to see. Find out what my fantastic choices are—in no particular order—after the jump.
