Ironhead Studios just revealed the maquettes for the Flash and Cyborg for the new Justice League movie.

Maquettes are sculptures that are made before production so that a film studio can see what the final appearance of a certain something might look. Just a day or so ago, Ironhead Studios (they worked on Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice) instagrammed (is that a word?) their maquettes for Flash and Cyborg. Although not quite complete, I think they look pretty awesome.

In the photograph below, Cyborg is on the right and the Flash is on the left. The Flash's suit looks really interesting, and kind of reminds me of the body armor that you see in first-person shooters like Crysis and Halo. Body armor is all the rage now peeps (at least among young men). It's kind of interesting how you now see skin-hugging sci-fi suits popping up everywhere from video games to comic book movies.

It's almost as if the whole nerd world kind of went and got itself an armor and weapons fetish.

  1. The suits look cool.
    Can you imagine how much someone would pay for those figures if they could?

    I think you said more there than you realized. Considering the world today and all...

  4. Halo probably started that armor and weapons fetish.

  6. A militarized world has always been part of both fiction and real life. The movie world got more interesting.

  7. I'd never heard of the word maquette. What's remarkable for me is how those figures look like they're molded from steel, but instead it's likely some kind of lightweight plastic.
