Look What The Creator Of Kingdom Hearts Has Done To Batman
This is what happens when Final Fantasy character designer and Kingdom Hearts boss Tetsuya Nomura gets his hands on the Caped Crusader.
Part of Square Enix’s DC Comics Variant Play Arts Kai line of re-imagined figures — the first of a series designed by Nomura — this Batman is almost more of a Bahamutman, all wings and claws and sharp angles. It’s certainly above and beyond any Batman I’ve seen.
Nomura’s Batman (really needs a proper name) will be on display at the Square Enix booth at San Diego Comic-Con today through Sunday. Eventually they’ll sell it.
Do you want to help name an alien planet? Starting next year, space fans around the world will get the chance to vote on their favorite names for worlds beyond our solar system.
In a first, the International Astronomical Union (IAU) in charge of naming heavenly bodies will open its exoplanet naming process to the world in 2015 in the form of a public vote. Representatives with the IAU announced the new naming project, called NameExoWorlds, today (July 9).
Sometimes finding a thing on the internet is its own reward. I have no idea what this is or where it came from, but it’s the strangest and greatest thing I’ve seen in a long time. Popping up Tuesday on the YouTube page of user lepoissonriuge, the modest video description says the following: “Found a clip on old video tape 1970′s? 80′s?…like a Japanese version Doctor Who. Anyone?” I don’t know much about a lot of things, but I’m damn skippy this wasn’t made in those decades. This has the stench of modernity all over, but certainly it’s trying to evoke the 70′s or 80′s, and therein lies the fun.
The 3-minute vid finds our hero, Dr. Who, walking pleasantly through the woods (because there always is one) when he’s set upon by easily the leggiest Dalek (named Dalekor) you’ve ever seen, along with his nefarious gang of Kung fu-knowing Cyber Men. From there, Dr. Who puts on his fightin’ suit and begins to take out the foes, eventually employing his trusty Sonic Screw Sword. Dalekor! The Fiend!

Community is one step closer to ”six seasons and a movie.” Today, Sony Pictures Television announced that the series, which NBC cancelled in May, will return this fall on Yahoo Screen for a sixth 13-episode season.
