This week’s selection of great pics and vids that have been creating a buzz on the internet this week
••• This week the Pottermore Twitterfeed revealed details for four new schools of Wizardry and Witchcraft in Japan, central Africa, Brazil and North America. But Norwegian artist Even Amundsen has already created the Nordic branch of the magical franchise. Here are a few his characters for a school called Vølurheim. Where’s the Professor Of Troll Hunting?

••• Various US film and TV mags and websites this week were sent a mysterious package containing these six Avengers-emblazoned Coke cans a message saying, “02.07.16 – The Big Game Is Just the Beginning. Follow @CocaCola to watch the story unfold…” This obviously means that there’s going to be some kind of big new advert during this year’s Super Bowl, but as Screen Crush points out, it’s unlikely to be just another new trailer – after all Hulk isn’t in Captain America: Civil War (as far as we know). While we wait to find out we’re getting a little bit freaked by the Black Widow can. Can’t see many arachnophobes drinking out of that one.
••• Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 director James Gunn Tweeted this pic of some of the main cast in rehearsals adding the message, “When someone’s screwing up a scene during rehearsals I show them Dave Bautista as an example of good acting.” If you’re wondering who the guy squatting down is, that’s Sean Gunn, James’s bro’ who does stand-in of Rocket Raccoon.

••• From the artist who brought you Star Wars characters as classic Greek sculptures, Travis Durden, come these new collaborations with photographers on an evocative and moody set of images showing an imagined bleak future for Batman as the Dark Knight enter his twilight. “I wanted the final images as real as possible,” explains Durden, “as if Batman really spent time in these abandoned places.”
••• Just in case you do have feet like a Ninja Turtle, artists Hussain Almossawi and Quintin Williams have designed a pair of trainers just for you!
••• Although not quite the masterpiece that was the Batman V Superman trailer re-edited with George Reeves, Adam West and Lynda Carter footage we showed you earlier this week (see here) the version of the Suicide Squad trailer redone with cartoon footage is still well worth a look.
••• What if Tim Burton directed a bunch of Disney cartoon remakes? Artist Andrew Tarusov imagines they’d look very much like this. For some reason, we really the wallpaper in the 101 Dalmatians poster.
