It’s OK, but kinda Avatar-ish . . .

Check out the latest poster for John Carter below featuring a so-called Thark.

To be honest we kinda miss the muscular and more threatening Thark designs from the various comics throughout the years (see the pictures below the poster).

Same goes for the Dejah Thoris costume designs in the comics (scroll on below – you won’t be sorry).

Then again, it is a Disney movie and Avatar was a big hit and we can plainly forget about the Dejah Thoris costumes – or rather lack thereof. After all, it is a PG-13 movie . . .

    I would very much like to see Lynn Collins in a Deja Thoris bikini like the last ‘Worlord of Mars” comic book cover image…too bad this movie is rated PG-13…I want to see an rated R version or AA, Adult Accompaniment…with Lynn Collins nearly nude like Rosario Dawson in Sin City!;)

    One thing I was always a little confused about Burroughs’ Barsoomian women.  Barsoomians were oviparous – they laid eggs that incubated for five years before the young finally hatched as toddlers.  As the eggs provided all the nourishment necessary to keep the young alive, there was thus no need feed them from an outside source.  Why then the mammary glands?  Other than the delightful aesthetic value from an Earthling’s point of view, they serve no evolutionary purpose for the Barsoomians.  Not that I’m complaining, mind you…

    Yes, a human-size, flightless, large-egg-laying creature.  You’re talking about something resembling an ostrich!
