DC Comics has revealed their March variant covers and they’re paying homage to films! They all look fantastic but let’s talk about the ones that caught my eye (and heart).
If you swap Wonder Woman out for Batman, you have the cover of my proposed Superman story where Superman has to face his white privilege. In the story, the characters question why Superman’s variant cover is modeled after the blaxploitation film: Super Fly. Yes, it has the word “super” in it but so does Super Mario Bros. Maybe fifteen years from now, we’ll be lucky enough to have the New 52 Justice League recreate Top Five (but conveniently leave out Cyborg).
WONDER WOMAN #40
THIS. IS. THEMYSCIRAAAAAAAAA. Wonder Woman, you’re so bad ass.
ACTION COMICS #40
It’s like DC Comics of the 90s knew that Superman’s hair would pay off in the future for this very purpose.
FREE WILLY IS THE BEST ANIMAL MOVIE EVERRRR. I imagine Aquaman recreating this moment because he’s a fan too.
I demand to have a buddy (criminal?) film with The Mask and The Joker. Get to it, Hollywood.
JUSTICE LEAGUE #40
Hellooooooooooooo, Justice Men.
Wait. I swear there was another dude in the Justice League…
The rest of the variant covers are fantastic. I didn’t feature the other ones that were great like Catwoman or Detective Comics but you can check out the rest of the covers below. What are your favourites? Is there a film you wish was featured? Sound off in the comments below. We want your opinions!
