Mild Mannered Reviews - Injustice: Year Four - Chapter #3

Released Digitally: May 19, 2015

"Vengeance is Mine"

Writer: Brian Buccellato
Penciller: Matt Haley
Inker: Matt Haley
Cover: Art Thibert and Thomas Mason

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

    In terms of the Regime Superman/Montoya donnybrook, that was actually entertaining, though it might be the aftereffect of having seen Mad Max: Fury Road after breaking night. Montoya's despondency comes across very well, and does go some distances towards justifying her actions and excusing the nonsensical decision that she makes. It's questionable that she would be able to relapse on alcohol, as taking the super-pill should make her immune to the effects. Here is where a good writer can go deeper, explaining that the pill intensified her dependency, just as it exacerbated Jim Gordon's cancer, or, perhaps, Montoya isn't a relapse case at all, it's just her depression that allows her to believe such is the case. Her decision seems rash even with the caveats applied, as it comes suddenly and from nowhere. The Insurgency is at it's lowest ebb since Injustice has been offered, but it's far from a nadir. However, as we've been given a great amount of time and space since the Insurgency's last defeat, it's on the reader to fill in the chasms that are left in storytelling, which Injustice readers seem to be ready and raring to do. Still, Montoya's desperation comes across as genuine, and her fall will definitely be worthy of emoting for some readers, and in that it's a step up from the last two installments.

May 25, 2015: Documentary on Failed "Justice League: Mortal" Movie is ComingPrint

Justice League: Mortal It seems that the story behind failed DC Comics movie projects is a popular theme for documentary makers, with a feature-length documentary on the never-made "Justice League: Mortal" film by "Mad Max: Fury Road" director George Miller currently being planned.

    Short film director Ryan Unicomb is teaming with producers Aaron Cater and Steven Caldwell and Sydney-based writer/author Maria Lewis to develop the documentary which will reportedly be an unbiased account of the superhero ensemble project's gestation, development and ultimate disintegration.

    Currently going by the working title of "Miller's Justice League Mortal," Unicomb is said to already have private investors lined up though he may augment that however with a crowd-funding campaign. The plan is to interview some of the cast and crew who would have been a part of the film along with showcasing some never-before-seen artwork and costumes.

Source: DarkHorizons.com.

With George Miller directing, "Justice League: Mortal" was set to star D.J. Cotrona as Superman, Hammer as Batman, Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, Adam Brody as The Flash, rapper/actor Common as Green Lantern, Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter, Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman, Jay Baruchel as Maxwell Lord, and Teresa Palmer as Talia al Ghul. The Writer's strike in 2007 as well as a change in tax break advantages in Australia resulted in the project being cancelled.

Mild Mannered Reviews - Convergence: Adventures of Superman #2

Scheduled to arrive in stores: May 20, 2015

Cover date: July 2015

Writer: Marv Wolfman
Penciller: Roberto Viacava
Inker: Andy Owens
Cover: Mikel Janin

Reviewed by: James Lantz

    It's a pity we don't see Marv Wolfman's name in more superhero comic books. I've always enjoyed his work in general, and this book is well written. The only major flaw is that the series overall seems to be trying to cram four issues of story into half that amount. I don't want to blame Wolfman for that as it could have been an editorial decision for the entire crossover to be tied up in the main Convergence comic. This chapter is still one of the better ones in that event, and I'd recommend it to anyone.

Mild Mannered Reviews - Convergence #7

Cover date: July 2015

"Showdown"

Writer: Jeff King & Scott Lobdell
Penciller: Aaron Lopresti
Inker: Mark Morales
Main Cover: Carlo Pagulayan and Jason Paz with Peter Steigerwald

Reviewed by: Jeremiah Boor

    Somewhere along the way, King has learned to (slightly) better hide the padding of his wafer-thin story. Over the past few issues, he has used more and more two page spreads. In this format, the panels get bigger. Fewer panels take up more room, but give the illusion of density. Since readers see two pages at once, there appears to be more going on. Even though the panel count has dropped.

    A typical twenty page comic contains about 100 to 120 panels. This issue is twenty-eight pages, but only has 88 panels. This edition of Convergence has some nice moments, but is still light on story. The last page being the only thing worth remembering.

    If all a great story needs is an intriguing cliffhanger, most writers in this industry would be on par with William Shakespeare. But unfortunately for King, every page should be important.

May 23, 2015: Full "Supergirl" Pilot Leaks OnlinePrint

Supergirl

The complete pilot episode of the "Supergirl" TV series leaked online on Friday, with two 'Scene' release groups - LOL and DIMENSION releasing a 400mb file and a 6gb (1080p) file respectively.

There's quite a bit of speculation as to how and why the full pilot episode was allowed to be released online six months ahead of its official CBS premiere in November.

The leaked pilot, which runs for 46 minutes, does not contain any network identifiers or watermarks (that can be seen), or any of the usual "property of" warnings that accompany "screener" copies the network may have handed out to reviewers or employees.

SUPERGIRL is an action-adventure drama based on the DC Comics character Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), Superman's (Kal-El) cousin who, after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.

Twelve-year-old Kara escaped the doomed planet Krypton with her parents' help at the same time as the infant Kal-El. Protected and raised on Earth by her foster family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex (Chyler Leigh), and learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin in order to keep her identity a secret.

Years later at 24, Kara lives in National City assisting media mogul and fierce taskmaster Cat Grant (Golden Globe Award winner Calista Flockhart), who just hired the Daily Planet's former photographer, James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks), as her new art director. However, Kara's days of keeping her talents a secret are over when Hank Henshaw (David Harewood), head of a super-secret agency where her sister also works, enlists her to help them protect the citizens of National City from sinister threats. Though Kara will need to find a way to manage her newfound empowerment with her very human relationships, her heart soars as she takes to the skies as Supergirl to fight crime.

Greg Berlanti ("The Flash," "Arrow"), Ali Adler, Sarah Schecter and Andrew Kreisberg are executive producers for Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The pilot was directed by Glen Winter ("Arrow").
