It's a little hard to do that when you are Superman. When he has the 'S' shield on, people are either too afraid of him or too much in awe of him.
Unicomb has already filmed preliminary interviews with comic book artists on the enduring cultural influences of the characters including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash and Green Lantern, that would have featured in Miller's movie.
If WB gives its approval, Unicomb hopes to interview Miller and Mitchell, US producer Dan Lin, some of the actors who were lined up to star in the film including Armie Hammer (Batman), D.J. Cotrona (Superman) and Megan Gale (Wonder Woman), and concept artists who worked on the project.
Jason Fabok: Well, I come from an animation background. I took animation in college, and one lesson I still use today is that, whenever you're trying to capture emotions, be an actor. Get up, look in front a mirror or take pictures, photo reference, things like that. You'll see little nuances in your face and you can try transfer those into the character. So I think that's one thing a lot of times comic book artists, you don't really think that - at the same time, you're also an actor. You're trying to act through the artwork. You're trying to capture the emotion that's just written on the page and trying to get inside these characters' heads and think, "Well, how would they really react?" Like, how would Lex Luthor react? Usually, he's calm, very cool, doesn't show his emotions. But something like that, seeing Superman bleeding, would be a shock to Lex Luthor. This is a guy who's been trying to do this to Superman for years and failed. Now he's seeing that face to face on this terrible planet, Apokolips, that he's on right now.
You're really just trying to get in these characters' head, trying to act, trying to approach it like a director would approach filming a movie or something like that. Those are the scenes that are - I think that shot where Superman's bleeding, I think I redrew that face three or four times before it actually got to the point where I was happy with it, or at least had to move on because I had to get to the next page. But yeah, that's one of my favorite pages and was one of the harder pages of the book to capture.
Fabok: Artistically, Geoff had brought up this whole idea that Superman gets corrupted by the Apokolips solar pits. I've always had this idea that it would be really cool, with the technology we have now for making comics, to take a piece of art, draw it, color it normally and then render it as a negative. Inverting the colors, you get a real funky look to a character. I'm sure it's been done sometime someplace, but I wasn't able to really remember that being done. I just thought, "Man, that would be a really striking visual," to be able to do that in this book and then see that play out in these issues coming up.
So artistically, I draw the same way I would normally draw it, send it to the colorist Brad Anderson, who killed it on every single page. He takes it, colors it normally, and then in Photoshop or whatever, he'd just invert it, flip the colors, add some saturation to it so it's black and white, and you got a really unique image. It's a little bit more work to do that and a little bit more planning on my part trying to separate different layers for him to tackle, but I think it makes for a pretty cool effect. You'll see more of that coming up.
When the Crime Syndicate took over the Earth and subdued the Justice League in the pages of Forever Evil it was up to villains like Lex Luthor to fight back. He appears here just as he did in the comics, ready to take on any threat to his world domination. Luthor releases his inner fury in a tensed pose, legs bent and fists held up as he's ready to strike. Lex's resplendent metallic green and purple battlesuit covers his whole body except for his head, and is highly detailed with panels, overlapping plates, reinforced joints, his personal logo on his chest armor and more. The only part of his body exposed is the villain's head, and under his gloriously bald pate Luthor scowls at his unworthy enemies.
Sculpted by Ikkei Jitsukata, Lex Luthor stands just under 8 inches tall (in the ARTFX+ 1/10th scale) and like all ARTFX+ statues he has magnets in his feet for extra stability on his included display base. Lex looks great in his shiny, high tech battlesuit and is a perfect addition to any villain or hero display; just don't let him get too close to Superman!

We tweaked the Superman suit only slightly from our suit from Man of Steel. We streamlined plus sharpened the details of the costume a little to suit the more earthly (less alien) context of this film. The batsuit is a complete 180 degree turn from the previous film incarnations - our Batman's power comes from his incredible physical strength and fighting skills, not from armor. The director Zack Snyder wanted him to look as much like the comic book version as possible - to be respectful to the original source. As for the Wonder Woman suit, well she has never been seen in a film before, so there was nothing to compare it to! There is of course the costume from the TV show. Zack wanted our character to be a fierce and intimidating warrior - gritty, battle-scarred and immortal.
You previously worked on Man of Steel. How many of those costumes carried over to this film?
Only the main Superman costume. Everything else is new!
Where did the costumes go after filming ended?
The hero suits begin a world-wide publicity tour in the next few months. They will be seen everywhere from Tokyo to L.A.
According to HeroicHollywood.com, rumor has it that Lex Luthor will solidify his villain status with Superman when he kidnapps Martha Kent in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice".
We saw in "Man of Steel" how angry Clark became when Zod threatened Martha in his search for the Kryptonian Codex. However, the problem with this new rumor is that Lex Luthor kidnapping Martha Kent would indicate that he knows that Clark Kent is Superman.
