New York, NY (PRWEB) July 14, 2010 This isn’t the first time Batman has followed his archenemy the Joker into a darkened museum after hours, but this is the first time neither will be leaving. Mezco Toyz has donated the prototypes of its new Batman and Joker Mez-Itz to the prestigious Museum Of The Moving Image in New York. The Museum of the Moving Image houses a collection of more than 130,000 artifacts from motion pictures, television, and digital media. Mezco’s Batman and Joker Mez-Itz will make their new home among the museum’ collection of 1,200 action figures, toys, board games, and other licensed items.
The Dark Knight and the Clown Prince Of Crime, are not only the first of many characters from the DC Universe that Mezco will be transforming into Mez-Itz, but are also a personal triumph for Mezco’s President. “I’ve been a DC fan since I picked up my first comic book many years ago. To have access to the DC Universe and the ability to recreate these iconic heroes and villains as Mez-Itz is a dream come true!’ said Mezco President Michael “Mez” Markowitz
I’m not going to post a full review of Kick-Ass. Anything I say will just be another review on how great this movie is. What I can do is push you to help support the film. The film came in second place this weekend. That means that a small percentage of the superhero audience went to see the movie. It’s important to support smaller comic book films. For those of you who have seen the film what did you think?
“Kick-Ass”, the action-adventure movie from Lionsgate and Matthew Vaughn, is a twisted high-octane adventure that redefines the “super hero” genre, based on the popular comic by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.
Kick-Ass, a.k.a. Dave Lizewski is an average teenager and avid comic-book fan, who decides to become a real-life superhero, Kick-Ass! With no actual super powers, his life is forever changed as he encounters the violent, real-crime world of common thugs, drug lords and underworld mobsters.
I loved Mark Millar’s comic Kick-Ass. I stopped collecting comics a while ago, but once in a while I browse the comic stand. Ok so I read them without buying. Now we get the film adaption of Kick-Ass, and I can’t wait.
