October 24, 2014: Screenwriter Dan Gilroy Talks About "Superman Lives"Print

Nicolas Cage as Superman In an interview with Movies.com, screenwriter Dan Gilroy reveals that the never-made "Superman Lives" script was amongst his favorites, and its cancellation in the late 1990s is still a sore point for him.

    Movies.com: Is there a favorite script of yours that never came to be?

    Gilroy: I had some pretty high-profile ones. You know, I spent a year working with Tim Burton on his Superman Lives movie and the day they pulled the plug on that was very, very disappointing. It was disappointing for all of us: for me, for Tim, for Nic Cage, for John Peters. We were very far along and Warner Bros. had gone through a cycle where nothing they were making was connecting and they were hemorrhaging money and they just didn't feel that they could sustain making that film. So that was a major disappointment. I think Tim would have made a really marvelous film out of what we had come up with. That was hard.

    Movies.com: How do you recover from that?

    Gilroy: It's a wound. It's like getting punched in the face. You spend a year pouring all your artistic and creative energy into it and suddenly it evaporates and goes away in the space of a phone call. And you have to regroup. It's a disappointment, though obviously there are greater disappointments in life than that, but you have to take the time to say that hurts and figure out what that means and as honestly as possible move on and continue what you're doing. I think Tim and all of us went through that process. It was very painful.

    Movies.com: Is there anything from your script that you wanted for Superman that you're still bummed hasn't seen the light of day?

    Gilroy: Tim had the idea, which was really the driving force of the movie, that Jor-el didn't have the chance to tell Kal-el when he put him in the little spaceship meteorite where he came from or who he was. So poor little Kal-el grew up on Earth having no idea where these powers came from or who he was, and I always thought that was a really inverted, deconstructionist element to bring to the story. I loved it and working with Tim we tried to explore it as much as possible. I'd love to see it happen some day. I'm a big Tim Burton fan.

October 23, 2014: Batman-Heavy Teaser Trailer for "Batman v Superman" Rumored in DecemberPrint

Dawn of Justice Batman-on-Film.com claim that a teaser trailer for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", which will focus mostly on Batman, will be released over the next two months.

    According to a few of BOF’s BvS insiders, the first teaser trailer for the film is complete and ready to go. The overt hint I got from these folks is that the teaser will be revealed this Fall along with a November or December film release (and online, of course). I have no idea to which specific film it may be “attached,” but New Line’s (which is Warner Bros.’ sister company) THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES is being released on December 17, 2014.

Releasing a teaser trailer 15 or 16 months before a film's release does seem like a long time. The teaser trailer for "Man of Steel" was released with "The Dark Knight Rises" on July 19, 2012, which was 11 months ahead of the film's release.


October 23, 2014: "Batman v Superman" Filming Taking Place in Metamora TownshipPrint

Back in June we saw trucks and trailers move in to the former Girl Scout camp grounds on Caley Road in the Metamora Township in Michigan. Now, it looks like things are heating up at the location, with a lot more cars, camping trailers and other vehicles moving in at the location in preparation for filming on "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice".

    The site with a lake has sparked some rumors that it may be connected to Batman's secret hideout, the Batcave, but nothing has been confirmed.

    Jeremiah Barker, who lives near the site, said the vehicle started pulling in the night of Oct. 20. Beyond being informed months ago that the site will be used to filming the movie, he said he hasn't heard anything else.

    I liked seeing Lois in the Batgirl costume. It was unexpected and fun. I also liked the chemistry between Batman and Lois. Don't get me wrong, I'm a total Clois fan. However, Lois is going to be attracted to any strong, moral man. It's who she is. And remember, attraction doesn't always equal love. So, I can handle a short Bruce/Lois romance.

    I like that Lois Lane saves Mangubat. That too is in her character. She knows he's a bad guy, but he still deserves a fair trail.

    At the end, Batman and Alfred's emotional exchange was so poignant, my heart broke a little for Alfred as he realized that Bruce had regained his memories.

October 23, 2014: Stand Like Superman to Increase Your Chances of SuccessPrint

Superman Stance A Harvard University study into Body Language has discovered that standing in a Superman pose (I'm assuming that means clench fists on hips) for two minutes before a job interview could increase your chances of success.

    In one Harvard study, people who took on a power pose - such as an expansive Superman-like position - for just two minutes before a job interview, raised their testosterone levels, lowered their stress hormone cortisol - and as a result performed better and were more likely to be hired, then people who took on more contractive, low-power poses.

You can read all about the study at CNN.com.


October 22, 2014: "LEGO DC Comics: Batman Be-Leaguered" Preview ClipPrint

DC Entertainment has released a new clip from the upcoming Cartoon Network special, "LEGO DC Comics: Batman Be-Leaguered", which features Cyborg meeting Batman for the first time as they battle Lex Luthor.

Cartoon Network has also released an extended story description along with six preview images from the animated special...

    Batman prides himself on being a loner, a totally self-sufficient one-man-band. Just ask anyone; Batgirl, Robin, Nightwing, Alfred... anyone. So, he is understandably irritated when his nightly cleanup of Gotham City villains is interrupted by Superman, who pesters Batman to join his new superhero team, the Justice League. After Batman makes it quite clear to the Man of Steel that his invitation has been declined, Superman flies off disappointed... whereupon he is overcome with a strange energy and vanishes!

    With Earth's mightiest super-being missing, it's time for the World's Greatest Detective to spring into action. With no time to lose and the entire planet to search, Batman enlists the aid of the fastest man alive, The Flash. Together their high-speed search leads them to the villainous Captain Cold, who is stealing an ancient artifact in Egypt. After the Flash has likewise vanished at the end of their battle with evil, Batman teams up with Aquaman, Wonder Woman and Cyborg to fight famous costumed Super-Villains before vanishing one-by-one at the hand of a mysterious enemy. It now falls to the Dark Knight, who alone must free the newly-formed Justice League from a powerful foe. But can Batman learn the value of being a team-player before the Justice League is lost forever?

October 22, 2014: Kate Perkins Talks About Writing SupergirlPrint

Supergirl #36 Kate Perkins, better known as just K. Perkins, will join Mike Johnson as co-writer on the "Supergirl" comic book title in November with issue #36. Newsarama.com spoke with Perkins to find out what we can expect from Kara Zor-El in the coming months. Here's part of the interview...

    Q: With this mysterious Crucible Academy story, which enrolls "beings of cosmic importance," what elements of Supergirl are you exploring? How does this situation challenge or pose a threat to her?

    Perkins: I'm a 'think first, act second' kind of person. Kara, on the other hand, is not - and I love that. Being in a 'school' environment, Kara's instincts and thought processes are going to be challenged, which will put her in a place of vulnerability. In that vulnerability, she's also learning her limits, which can be a very good - or very scary - thing to confront.

    Q: Why did you think this challenge in particular made sense for Supergirl at this point?

    Perkins: From my point of view, Kara was kind of grabbing at straws before Crucible Academy. She was trying to find out who she is and where she fits in the universe through other characters. I think she's back at a new kind of zero now.

    She fully realizes her life on Krypton is gone and understands that mourning won't do her any good any longer. So, she starts anew on Earth by her own choice. Making that step is an incredibly hard thing to do for anyone, especially for someone who has to count largely on herself.

    And though she make strides on Earth, she chooses to remain at Crucible because she sees the value of being there.

    But that in no way implies that there aren't complications...
