DC Comics Presents Movie Poster Inspired Variant Covers In March 2015

Lights, camera…Covers!

Inspired by classic Warner Bros. movie posters, DC Comics’ newest batch of variant covers are fun, imaginative…and not coming to a theater near you. But you’ll wish they were. Whether it’s Supergirl realizing that she’s not on Krypton anymore, Aquaman fighting to Free Willy, Batgirl ready to lead the Revolution (just think about it for a moment) or the Justice League…well, it’s best to just see that one for yourself.

These clever movie poster mashups are the most recent in DC’s series of monthly variant cover themes. Previous themes include monsters in October, LEGO in November and this month’s amazing Darwyn Cooke variants. In January, DC Comics will feature variant covers that pay tribute to the Flash’s 75th Anniversary, while Harley Quinn steals the stage in February. Look for these movie poster inspired variant covers in March 2015.
