August 21, 2014: Does This "Batman v Superman" Newspaper Prop Hint at Kryptonite?Print

Kryptonite? ThePropStop, a site which talks about movie props and costumes, has uncovered a newspaper prop reportedly created for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", which contains an article written by Lois Lane, that may hint at Kryptonite.

The Daily Planet newspaper prop article is titled "A City pf Neighborhoods", which talks about a university student who resides in Brick City (described as an "oft-neglected Hob's Bay port) in Metropolis, who gathered soil samples from eight neighborhoods within the city limits and, upon analysis, discovered toxicity levels that were extremely high.

A photo that accompanies the article (pictured), appears to be someone holding a toxic clay sample... or could it be a green meteorite?

August 21, 2014: Frank Miller Says "I Love Superman"Print

Superman Superman fans who have read (or watched) Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns" could be forgiven for thinking that the comic book creator is anti-Superman, with Superman portrayed in a less than flattering light in that much-hyped story. However, in an interview with Playboy Miller reveals that he actually loves Superman!

    "The Dark Knight [comic book] series is all from Batman's point of view," Miller told Playboy. "But if you look at Dark Knight 2, you'll see a Superman who's much calmer than the one in the first Dark Knight.

    "Batman and Superman are dead opposites. I love Superman. Do I love Batman more? They're not people. They're only lines on paper."

Miller goes on to admit that he cannot watch any of the Batman films, even Nolan's Batman movies, walking out of the theatre before the films are over.
