The Top 5 will take a brief hiatus next week as I’ll be in Austin for MondoCon on Saturday. As someone who has little to no available wall space thanks to its namesake, I’m genuinely thrilled to have the opportunity to attend the convention and meet artists like Tim Sale, Francesco Francavilla, Jock, and more. The analogy “like a kid on Christmas” comes to mind, but there’s a solid chance that there will be more alcoholic beverages consumed during my brief stint in Austin than would be appropriate for a child’s Christmas festivities. At any rate, Top 5 and I will return in two short weeks and I’ll likely use the opening paragraph to hit on some of the high points of my MondoCon experience then. This is important because it will not only mean that I enjoyed safe travels but also that my wife let me back in the house in spite of the posters and collectibles that I’ll inevitably bring home.
My prelude to MondoCon out of the way, this week’s installment includes a detailed look at the Batmobile from Zack Snyder‘s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the first trailer and poster for Keanu Reeves‘ revenge actioner John Wick, word from Robert Downey Jr. that there are currently no plans for Iron Man 4, a new trailer for David Cronenberg‘s Maps to the Stars, and all of our TIFF 2014 coverage to date. Keep reading for a brief recap and link to each of the above.
