March 29, 2015: Henry Cavill Talks "Batman v Superman" at Jameson Empire AwardsPrint

Empire Awards Henry Cavill appeared at today's Jameson Empire Awards at London's Grosvenor House ballroom, where he was tasked with the job of presenting the Best Director Award (which went to Christopher Nolan for "Interstellar").

During an interview Henry spoke briefly about his upcoming films, including a brief snippet about "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice".

The interview with Henry Cavill takes place at about 33 minutes into the video.


March 29, 2015: Rare Find - Chinese Superman Matchbox CoverPrint

Chinese Superman Matchbox Cover The image shown here is an enlarged photo of the Hong Kong-produced WAH TUNG MATCH COMPANY Chinese SUPERMAN matchbox cover.

The date on these two covers is unknown but is speculated to be from around 1966. The true size of this item is 1-7/16"†wide by 1-7/8" high. John Sindall, founder of the Q Collection Comic Book Preservation Project purchased the cover, which had been removed from the matchbox when he found it. This unique Superman collectible will be laminated and used in the SUPERMAN BINDER BONUS SECTION of the Q Collection Comic Book Preservation Project.

Here's a bit more on this Asian oddity:

    This is a match box from Wah Tung Match Co. featuring an interesting localized image of SUPERMAN as filtered through Chinese style art. I haven't been able to find out a whole lot about the company, beyond that they are named after a part of Hong Kong (ďTung WahĒ). The date they released this Sueprman pack is unknown, too. The only real info I have about the company is that they also released a series of match packs featuring great images from Chinese mythology. And here's a Dutch site that has dozens of different Wah Tung Co. match box images.

Many thanks to CollectingSuperman.com for this information.

Note: For those interested, there was also a Batman matchbox cover produced.

Cover date: May 2015

"Family Matters"

Writer: Greg Pak

Inker: Vicente Cifuentes and Mark Morales
Cover: Adrian Syaf, Sandra Hope, Ulises Arreola

Reviewed by: Alisa Lea Gossage

    This whole arc was a breath of fresh air. Superman faced a new kind of enemy. Everything was so much more personal. And thus, the stakes were so much higher for him. He was forced to make very difficult choices. I like that he is humble enough to turn to Batman for help. Superman is all heart, but he is also smart enough to know when he needs help.

    As the story progresses, I felt Superman's frustration, anger, anguish and in the end, sadness.

March 25, 2015: First Photo of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex LuthorPrint

Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor Entertainment Weekly has released our first look at Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor for the upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". The movie's release is just a year away and fans have been waiting eagerly for every bit of info to be released. This photo should allay some of the concerns people have had about what the well-known super-villain will look like.

Zack Snyder had this to say about his version of the balding megalomaniac: "He's not any of the Lexes that you've seen, that's for sure, other than him being a captain of industry and one person to the world and another person to himself. And bald, of course."

"Our Lex is disarming and he's not fake," says Snyder. "He says what he believes and he says what's on his mind. If you can unravel the string and decipher what he means, it's all there."
