Recently a guy dressed as a Stormtrooper put a street on lockdown thanks to citizens that weren’t familiar with Star Wars. This time, commuters in Australia who are clearly not comic book fans called the cops on a Deadpool cosplayer named Reuben Rose who was on his way to a charity event.
Granted, he was openly carrying (plastic) swords, and firearms which was probably not the best idea in this day and age, but he was also carrying cupcakes—which is where this story gets amusing.
Thankfully, he was not charged with any crime and was soon on his way to work where he was trying to raise money for Bear Cottage at Manly, a hospice for children.

There’s a 75th anniversary Batman exhibit at Comic-Con, and the cape and cowl that will be used in the upcoming film Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is on display.
It’s got this whole eyebrow thing going on, but it still looks pretty awesome. The lighting in the pics don’t really do it justice.

ThinkGeek’s TNG Uniform hoodies were so popular that they are boldly going back to the original series for a new round of designs. From the product page:
Each Star Trek The Original Series Uniform Hoodie is as perfect as we could make it – teaming up with the folks at CBS, of course. There are three styles (each with a specific Rank Braid). Here’s the rank breakdown: Command Gold is Captain, Sciences Blue is Commander, and Engineering Red is Lieutenant. No Lieutenants were harmed during the making of these Star Trek The Original Series Uniform Hoodies… promise.
This full-zip hoodie is an officially-licensed Star Trek clothing item. It’s made of 60% cotton / 40% polyester. The colors are pieced together, not printed on. It has two front pockets and embroidered insignia and rank braid.
A release date for the hoodies hasn’t been announced, but they’ll be priced at $59.99.

Here’s a way you can cosplay Slave Leia anywhere, even the grocery store, without being scantily clad. Leia probably shouldn’t be out in the sun anyway—she’s looking really pale here.
And yes, it would be hilarious to see guys wear this.

Today, Zack Snyder gave us all our first look at Ben Affleck in the new Batsuit for the upcoming movie known currently as Batman Vs. Superman. The ears are shorter, the suit is stockier and there appear to be be visible veins. We like what we see so far—and the new Batmobile doesn’t look bad either.
