Micro-News: PACIFIC RIM, Marvel Studios, CARRIE And More
Exactly when does the story begin in Legendary's Pacific Rim? Frank Miller will be writing more RoboCop in a new series scheduled for release in August. Plus small news bits concerning Carrie, Robot Chicken and Marvel Studios.
Marvel Studios Concept Illustrator Andy Park spoke with New America Media about what it's like getting the opportunity to be on the ground floor of creating the look and feel of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Park: "For many concept art gigs in film, television and video games, a strong art style is not always welcomed. You have to be adaptable to the style of the project you are working on. For God of War it was a stylized realism. For live-action films like The Avengers, painting in a more photo-real manner is required. [As a concept artist,] you get hired to work on a film, and you work a couple of months and that’s it; you have to find another gig. But this is unprecedented because a group of guys are hired full-time. We get to work on every single Marvel film. We are the ones responsible to keep a consistent and believable look to the entire Marvel Studios’ cinematic universe. It’s definitely a dream gig whether you’re a self-professed fanboy or not. To work on one Marvel film is amazing, but we get to play in this massive play pen."
Robot Chicken teased a few of the characters appearing in their second DC Comics Special.
The story told in Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim begins on August 11, 2013 in San Francisco according to this tweet from the official film account.
Frank Miller is returning to comics and he'll be writing more RoboCop at Boom!Studios.
