Micawber did a marvelous job at portraying Black Widow. And she slightly resembles Scarlett Johansson on this angle.

Hulkbuster from Avengers: Age of Ultron

Made by Filipino cosplayer, Pablo Bairan, this Hulkbuster will make its first appearance in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’. Other than the scale, everything looks like film quality. And yes, there’s a person inside.

Wonder Woman

Rainfall Films produced a great looking short film about Wonder Woman with Rileah Vanderbilt as Diana of Themyscira. I think she fits the bill better than Gal Gatot.

Groot from Guardians Of The Galaxy

Groot is one of the most strangest characters Marvel has ever created on film. Daniel Ramos took on the challenge of bringing this character to life. He took a total of nine days to create this costume and even had to use under armor long johns of sorts for comfort.

Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story

Buzz Lightyear is one of the most memorable Pixar characters and this particular cosplayer does the most accurate renditions of Buzz that I’ve seen so far.

These huge LEGO costumes are not made by a fan. They are marketing figures, but that didn’t stop them from making it realistic.

Jules & Vincent from Pulp Fiction

Elliott Branch’s cosplay of Samuel Jackson is so on point and Dave Colbert even has that smug, squinting look of John Travolta. Tarantino must have missed these two perfect stunt doubles.

Dante from Devil May Cry 3

From the design of Dante’s jacket to the beautiful details on his weapons, his hair and eyes, everything is amazingly crafted. Plus, having that face and body makes Leon Chiro the real-life version of Dante.

Harley Quinn from Batman: Arkham City

This is the new costume of Harley Quinn from the popular video game, Batman arkham Asylum. Quinn’s character is a violent felon whose only motivation is to please Joker. I hope DC Comics has added her to their future films.

All I can say is everything on this photo is spot on! For this movie to succeed it needs an R-rating to stay true to the character. Let’s hope they give us the Deadpool we all know and love and have been waiting to see on the big screen.
