With its release coming in just two days in America, I figured it would be great to revisit Flynn Rider, the male hero from Disney's Tangled.
This post features not just screencaps from trailers and movie clips but also some really cool promo and concept art. Seeing more of the 2D art kind of makes me wish Tangled was 2D like The Princess and The Frog. Then again, seeing a Disney prince in CG is certainly unique.
Just like the last Tangled post, there are some extra pics to be found in the image archive. This archive is a bit larger than others because I opted not to shrink any pics.

Superman: Earth One is the new original graphic novel that presents a more "modern" take on Superman's origins. Written by J. Michael Straczynski and featuring art by Shane Davis, this book is so popular that it actually sold out on Amazon.com.
It seems that what you think of this book is based mostly off your previous experience with Superman. People who like Superman seem to not like it as much as those who hated Superman in the past. Personally, I'm somewhat in the middle. I like the art a lot. However, the story is sort of hit or miss. There are some things I like and some things I didn't. Overall, I'm definitely looking forward to more.
Check out some more scans below.

Final Fantasy XIV is the latest entry in the long-running series. Like Final Fantasy XI, this entry is an MMORPG and not a traditional RPG.
Square Enix has a history of using hot male characters in their Final Fantasy games. Even though Final Fantasy XIV is an online game, they still managed to do this by putting an unnamed Hyur (human) archer upfront. He's featured prominently in the game's opening movie and was also featured in the pre-release trailers.
Below, you'll find a combination of offical artwork and screencaps of the males in this game.

It's time to revisit one of the hotter heroes in the Marvel Universe, former Captain America Steve Rogers. Below, you'll find more pics of Steve from both Steve Rogers: Super Soldier (#3 and #4) and Secret Avengers (#4 and #6). Dale Eaglesham did the pencils for Super Soldier and Mike Deodato did the pencils for Secret Avengers.

Arcobaleno! is a otome game/visual novel for the PS2 from Otomate, the company behind Hakuouki and Hiiro no Kakera. Instead of taking place in the past or having supernatural elements, this title takes place in the present with the heroine working in a restaurant.
Check out more artwork from the game below.
