More Warlord of Mars

More Barsoomian beefcake! These scans are from Warlord of Mars #4 in which our hunky hero finally gets some decent clothes! Well, decent by Barsoom standards that is. Its basically a red speedo with a lot of accessories.

The three variant covers:







Bonus: Here's the teaser poster from Pixar's upcoming epic, John Carter (formerly John Carter of Mars).  It shows very little info about the movie, but at least we got to see a bare-chested Taylor Kitsch. I can't wait to see his whole outfit. I hope it's sufficiently skimpy.

YAY! If only Taylor is this disrobed regularly in the actual movie, please God make it so! ;) Taylor's a major league hottie, he shouldn't be embarrassed at all spending an entire movie practically naked; same can be said for the movie's Dejah, Lynn Collins, she's gorgeous, plus she was already naked on True Blood anyway! This movie will either be super awesome or a total mess, but either way hopefully very sexy! Loving these Dynamite comics BTW, I've been keeping up and they capture the essence of the John Carter novels fairly well. :)

I'm a little worried about the movie as well. I know its being done by Pixar who can do know wrong (well, until they made Cars 2 that is), but this is their first foray into semi-live action films. Another thing that worries me is that it's being released in March, a time when studios release crappy movies that aren't good enough for the summer. I really hope it's gonna be good but if not, like you said, at least we'll (hopefully) get good eye candy out of it. Taylor is sexay!

300 was released in march and that was enjoyable with tons of beefcake to boot and did well box office wise. Even when the John Carter trailer comes we probably won't be able to tell either way as trailers these days are either deceptively great or unfairly sloppily constructed. I hope it's good though.

You bring up a good point. John Carter has many similarities to 300 (CGI-heavy, beefcake-fest) so its probably no accident that they're releasing it at the same time next year.

From now on I'm not even going to worry about the movie's quality (because let's be honest, even if it turns out to be crap, I'm still gonna see it), I'm just happy that we don't have to wait until summer 2012 to see it. That means we don't have to wait long to see Taylor in a speedo, swinging his sword!

Well, the movie news blogger sites claim the trailer will be attached to the new Harry Potter movie in the USA (along with trailers for the next Batman & Sherlock Holmes movies). Bloggers have said the preview footage shown at comic-con was very encouraging but that John Carter does NOT arrive on Mars naked. They also don't mention what he's wearing. Damn straight male blogger people, we want the skin report too, LOL! It would be a total waste of a hunk if Taylor stays totally covered up in this. I'm taking my little cousins to the Potter movie this weekend, so I'll let ya know what the trailer reveals or not. :)

I kinda figured that we wouldn't see a fully nude John Carter, its Pixar after all. I read one report about the trailer which mentioned that John is "stripped to the waist" but (annoyingly) didn't indicated what excactly he was wearing. These straight guys! I hope the bottom part of his costume is sufficiently skimpy, but like I said, this is Pixar so I wouldn't be surprised if they gave him pants. :( The same goes for Deja Thoris, she'll probably be wearing more "clothes" that the pasties that the comic book artists & book cover painters always have her in.

Okay, so he arrives on Mars fully clothed (ugh) but his Martian warrior costume (which he wears almost the entire trailer) leaves his abs, arms, and most of his chest & back visible (which was nice, he has nice nipples which were very visible since I know the nipps matter to you and alot of others, Pandesal). His legs are mostly covered up with either puffy middle eastern looking Capri pants or its a skirt type thing but either way the legs aren't very visible cause he also has practically knee high boots. Dejah wears outfits a bit like Princess Leia's infamous slave bikini only more ornate and bejeweled. Trailer looked overall very promising and what I expected skin-wise being this is a PG-13 after all. ;)

Thanks for the report, DAN. I just saw the trailer from in the official site and I'm actually quite happy with John Carter's costume. At least he's not wearing pants! And shirtless Taylor Kitsch is always a good thing. But I was a little disappointed with Dejah Thoris's outfit. Not sexy enough.
