FROM MTV MULTIPLAYER: If you're a gamer who likes comic books or vice versa, then the upcoming video game "Injustice: Gods Among Us" should probably be on your radar.
The new fighting game pitches some of the most badass characters in the DC universe against one another, though not all of the playable superheroes and villains have been revealed yet. Well, what better place to make that unveiling than San Diego Comic-Con?
The folks at NetherRealm Studios (the same people who do "Mortal Kombat") announced today that Cyborg and Nightwing are two popular characters who will be making an appearance as playable characters in the game. They'll be joining the already-announced Batman, Harley Quinn, Solomon Grundy, Superman, The Flash and Wonder Woman.
There's no place like home, there's no place like home, there's no place like home. That incantation, by the way, has not transported us anywhere — because we're feeling mighty comfortable exactly where we are here in San Diego, having a blast at Comic-Con International.
It's our third day on the ground now, and despite the fact that it's Friday the 13th, luck seems to be very much on our side when it comes to the folks we're speaking with today. Our live-stream shows continue today at 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT with interview subjects including "Frankenweenie" director Tim Burton and the cast of "The Expendables 2." Plus, we're speaking with Sam Raimi, Michelle Williams and Mila Kunis for "Oz: The Great and Powerful," and you won't need to slip on ruby slippers to check out our interview with them; you just have to watch the live show to see it all.
It's a Comic-Con rite of passage to wander the convention hallways, mouth agape, trying to take in the vast array of characters on display. But we're not talking about those on the printed pages, the heroes configured as plastic poseables or the associated celebs and filmmakers. Those are cool, but we're talking about the fans who take their devotion to its highest level: Cosplay.
San Diego Comic-Con is nothing without the constant flow of eye candy, as folks wearing costumes of various degrees of quality (and obscurity) from all the realms of pop culture intermingle freely and giddily all week.
Superman himself will pay a surprise visit to Hall H alongside his "Man of Steel" director Zack Snyder on Saturday (July 14), according to The Hollywood Reporter. Warner Bros. had previously announced that the "Watchmen" director would be on-hand to unveil footage from his big-budget reboot of the DC Universe's most well known character. But there was no mention of Cavill, who will don the red and blue in "Man of Steel," due in theaters next year.
We're not the only ones celebrating Comic-Con with live shows galore. Our friends at MTV Geek are also hosting live-stream events all throughout the convention, kicking off today with guests like DC Comics co-publishers Jim Lee and Dan DiDio, and comic book artists Kevin Eastman and Simon Bisley. Check it all out below!
Superheroes take on many forms at San Diego Comic Con, from the printed page, to the costumed masses, to the actors who've donned capes and cowls on screens big and small. No SDCC would be complete without these heroes plastic counterparts. Our buddies at MTV Geek sifted through the variety of exclusive figures making their multiple-points-of-articulation-fueled debuts this year and came up with a list of the 10 Best.
Last year was all about Mattel's delicious looking Stay Puft and a Swamp Thing so killer it could even make Alan Moore crack a smile.
Not at Comic-Con? Never fear — we're here to bring the convention to you!
MTV News' first Comic-Con live-stream is happening right here and now, with the cast of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2." That includes series leads Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and many more.
It's just the first of our three live-stream events, so check back here on Friday (July 13) and Saturday (July 14) at 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT for all your con coverage needs.
