Desktop Distractions: EP16 McFarlane Toys DC Superman

Since the announcement  last year about McFarlane acquired the rights to DC figures, we’ve been itching to see them up close. When Toyfaire came around, there was no showcase of any of these figures. We have been impressed seeing the work that McFarlane has done with their current figures like fortnite and their various anime figures like Naruto and My Hero, but how do the DC figures fair? Watch as The Eddie gets his hand on the animated series Superman!

Man of Steel novel by Greg Cox

man of steel

Growing up I love the original Superman I, II and III (we’ll just say IV – The Quest for Peace never took place, like X-Men 3:  The Last Stand – let us erase the memory of bad superhero flicks) with Christopher Reeves.  Warner Bros. put out some amazing trailers for the Man of Steel and I couldn’t wait for the anticipated spectacular in 3D IMAX.  It should be good since it’s produced by Christopher Nolan who brought us 3 terrific Dark Knight films, Zach Snyder of 300 & Watchmen fame and screenplay from David S. Goyer (Blade films & The Dark Knight trilogy).  I’ll say this is good film that was inspiring to be great, let’s just say it’s better than Superman Returns and as friend mentioned it was like watching a Dragon Ball Z movie.  I’ve watched the movie, now I read the book “Man of Steel” by New York Times bestselling author Greg Cox, who should be familiar to DC fans as he wrote the novelizations of Infinite Crisis, 52, Countdown and Final Crisis.

Superman Musical from the 1970s

An editor over @ Everythingisterrible.com must have had a lot of time on his hands because he ended up cutting this 1975 Superman TV musical into 3 minutes of terrible fun.  It’s so bad that’s it’s actually funny to watch.  Maybe a Smallville musical?
