March 1, 2015: SuperTrivia QuizPrint

SuperTrivia Quiz Welcome to the Superman Homepage SuperTrivia Quiz! This is a monthly competition, updated at the beginning of every month.

There are three trivia questions. They're based on anything Superman-related, whether it be in the Comics, TV shows, Cartoons, Movies, etc...

Can you answer all three questions correctly? Click here to find out!


February 27, 2015: Jason Momoa Talks About Aquaman in "Batman v Superman"Print

Jason Momoa as Aquaman Entertainment Weekly has published an interview with Jason Momoa in which they ask him about his role as Aquaman in the upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" and Justice League films. Here's an excerpt from the interview:

    I know it’s superficial of me, but one thing I really like about the potential of the DC movies is that its actors are actually pretty imposing. By that I mean, when I see you—who’s 6’5”—or 6’4” Ben Affleck or 6’1” Henry Cavill throw someone through a wall or get thrown through a wall, I feel like there’s really some damage being done. Have you filmed any action sequences with them yet?

    No, we haven’t done too much on the action yet. You know, Justice League is still quite a ways away. But I’m looking forward to it. Henry’s a sweetheart, Ben is a badass, so I’m really looking forward to when we all shoot Justice League.

    How much can we expect to see you in the Batman v. Superman movie?

    Well, it’s Batman and Superman, it’s not my movie. It’s the first time in history to have them both on the screen together, and I’m just excited to see those two up there.

    There was actually some speculation that Aquaman was meant to pop up in "Man of Steel", in the underwater scenes after Henry Cavill is blasted off the oil rig. Were you ever involved in those discussions?

    Well, you know, I think that’s left for the genius of Snyder to kind of reveal that. There’s definitely a plan in this whole universe that he’s designing, and it’s amazing to be a part of it. I think everything that you see that is building, there’s a purpose behind the whole plan. So I wouldn’t want to take anything away from Zack, because he loves revealing all those things. And… you never know, man.

February 27, 2015: Helen Slater and Dean Cain Cast in Top-Secret Supergirl TV RolesPrint

Dean Cain and Helen Slater According to TVLine.com, Helen Slater and Dean Cain have landed guest-starring roles on the upcoming Supergirl TV series set to debut on CBS this September.

As Superman and Supergirl fans know, Helen Slater played the role of Supergirl in the 1984 movie of the same name. While Dean Cain played Clark Kent/Superman in the 1990s TV series "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman".

TVLine.com claims that "details on who the pair will be playing in the pilot are being kept under lock and key".

The cast consists of: Melissa Benoist as Kara/Supergirl, Chyler Leigh as Alexandra "Alex" Danvers, Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen, Laura Benanti as Alura Zor-El, Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant, and David Harewood as Hank Henshaw.

Glen Winter is directing the pilot episode from a script penned by Ali Adler (No Ordinary Family) and Greg Berlanti (Arrow), both of whom will be executive producers alongside Sarah Schechter and Andrew Kreisberg.

Casting Calls for this series also indicate that Superman will make an appearance (although they're only looking for a Body Double, so we probably won't see his face).

Mild Mannered Reviews - Justice League #39

Scheduled to arrive in stores: February 18, 2015

Cover date: April 2015

"The Amazo Virus: The Infected"

Writer: Geoff Johns
Penciller: Jason Fabok
Inker: Jason Fabok
Cover: Fabok and Anderson

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

    Thankfully Convergence is next month, and readers won't be subject to the filler stories that have permeated the DC Universe for the last few months. Johns gives a textbook rendition of bathos and letdown in this, the conclusion of the story that never needed to happen. Four issues of a premise that was anything but interesting, is completed with a freezing of the problem. The ironic symbolism just can't be escaped. Aside from Luthor lying, Superman looking cross, and Batman being where he wasn't needed, there was nothing about the issues that exclaimed: Justice League... including the aforementioned. The world's greatest heroes band together for a problem that Captain Cold could have solved, and did, by accident? Superman flying in to assist was silly simpleness, and readers know that if there is anything we count on with Captain Cold, it's to produce a whole lot of cold. There is no movement on the dynamic of Luthor being on the League or anything else for that matter, and the creation of Amazo in organic form begs the question: Why not just use the android? They never bothered him anyway.

To date, in addition to those mentioned above, the cast consists of Melissa Benoist as Kara/Supergirl, Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen, Laura Benanti as Alura Zor-El, and Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant.
