This mug is from an alternate timeline where he is head of the research lab at Global Dynamics.

Original props featured in Oz The Great and Powerful on display...

If you loved Disney's new Oz The Great and Powerful, then you'll enjoy seeing these original props from the fantasy movie on display at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood on March 14, 2013.

Actual props from Oz The Great and Powerful on display

Included in the exhibit were props from Kansas at the start of the movie and from over the rainbow in the Land of Oz.

One of the sweetest additions to the Oz mythos in this movie was the 'China Girl' character who is discovered by James Franco's 'Oz' and his sidekick, 'Finley' the flying monkey, after her town of teapot and crockery houses has been decimated by the Wicked Witch's flying baboons.

As her character is digitally created by CGI special effects, I assume that this doll prop is used for placement in the scenes and for the actors to be able to act with.

In an homage to the original Wizard of Oz film, James Franco bestows some gifts on his friends and allies at the end of the movie. To the grumpy munchkin city herald 'Knuck' he gives this smile mask, whilst I believe the sinister looking potion bottle is used by 'Evanora' in the film.
