This has been a good week for comic book fans. First, there was Bryan Singer tweeting images of Professor Xavier’s wheelchairs in his upcoming Days of Future Past. Then we got another glimpse of Hugh Jackman as The Wolverine.
Now we’re getting news of a Batman/Superman team-up comic book. The series starts this June and features the characters at the beginning of their crime-fighting careers.
“We’ve been given the incredible opportunity to show these two icons meeting for the first time at this very early and raw stage in their careers,” writer Greg Pak told USA Today. “Neither one of them has ever heard of the other guy.”
The two characters have been a part of the DC universe since the 1930s.
Jae Lee (Ozymandias, The Dark Tower) will illustrate the book. You can see some of the art below.
Not to be outdone by DC’s news, Marvel tweeted a new poster for Iron Man 3 that shines the spotlight on Tony Stark’s nemesis – The Mandarin, played by Sir Ben Kingsley.
Robert Downey Jr. has said the villain will “steal the movie.” And since I was less than impressed with previous antagonists Jeff Bridges and Sam Rockwell, I’ll buy that for a dollar.
