February 11, 2016: New "Batman v Superman" IMAX PosterPrint

IMAX Poster In conjunction with the release of the final trailer for the movie, Warner Bros. has also released a new poster via USA Today for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" promoting the release of the film in IMAX.

    From the trailers to the "v" in the title, we knew there was going to be a serious battle of the world's finest superheroes in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. But looking at this exclusive new IMAX poster, STUFF GETS REAL.

    There's so much rubble flying around it looks like a tornado of ruination. Henry Cavill's Man of Steel doesn't look pleased. And although his back's turned, it's safe to guess Ben Affleck's armored Dark Knight isn't smiling. We're betting on the grimmest of grimaces.

February 11, 2016: Good Morning America Cancels "Batman v Superman" Special EventPrint

Earlier this week we reported that ABC's morning talk show "Good Morning America" would host a special "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" presentation on the morning of Monday, February 15 starting at 7.00am in New York City.

Unfortunately that event has now been cancelled.

The event was promoted by the 1iota Twitter account, with free tickets offered for fans to be in the audience for the show... but people who were lucky enough to snap up those tickets received an email today informing them of the event's cancellation.

Email

We don't know what the special "Batman v Superman" event was supposed to include, or whether any of the cast were scheduled to be in attendance. I guess now we'll never know.

February 11, 2016: Dan Amboyer Talks About His Role in "Batman v Superman"Print

Dan Amboyer Dan Amboyer, best known for his role in TV Land's "Younger" series, spoke to PopSugar.com about his secret role in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice"... a character called Lieutenant Christie, a character speculated to possibly be the Green Lantern.

    PS: First, what was set like?

    DA: It was awesome. I got there right at the beginning of shooting and it was crazy because my first day people were showing me around and all of a sudden the Superman suit comes by - and it's giant. It's not something you can hang up. So that was insane. But what I thought was really interesting was that they filmed a lot of it on film, not digital. So a lot of the sets were actually built. So, all of a sudden, you're on another planet, literally. Everything is so intricate and perfect. You think so much of that is just CGI and postproduction, but it was actually there.

    PS: Were you a fan of comics growing up? DA: That was more my brother's thing. I had an appreciation from the outside, but I never got deep into it. But I've become more interested in it and it's strange because I have started to audition for more of that stuff. I auditioned to play Superman in Man of Steel originally and I auditioned for The Flash. I've constantly been coming back to these characters.

February 10, 2016: "Supergirl" Episode Review - S01E13 "For The Girl Who Has Everything"Print

Season 1, Episode 13 'For The Girl Who Has Everything' Superman Homepage reviewer T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao) reviews episodes from the new "Supergirl" TV series, airing on CBS.

Check out his review of the 13th episode in which Kara's friends must find a way to save her life when a parasitic alien attaches itself to her and traps her in a dream world where her family is alive and her home planet was never destroyed. Also, Alex, Hank and the DEO must fend off a Kryptonian attack while Kara is out of commission.

    The theme of surrogacy is on full display, and if one does the legwork, it has been for some time. "For the Girl Who Has Everything" borrows from the Alan Moore story, "For the Man Who Has Everything," but only skeletally. Instead, and quite wisely, Supergirl uses the frame of Moore's Superman tale, to construct an episode suitable to its needs and liking. Krypton isn't a dysfunctional, politically charged mess in Kara's imposed reverie, it's a place of peace and family. Kara's resistance is initial, and becomes gradually less and less, until she's "gone native," complete in attire and hairdo. Anyone hoping to see a paint-by-numbers, BR-rip of Moore's work, will be disappointed, but those who wanted to see more of what makes Supergirl a top heroine, episode 13 shakes free of any unlucky connotations, and sets viewers squarely before a story that could only be told for Kara Zor-El in this time and on this show. The greatest reason for this is the dynamic of surrogacy that has, intentionally or otherwise, been developed up to this time. While Superman may have the Kents, Kara has an extended "family" that tricks out the interplay between the characters, and brings forth probing questions, subtly, in the form of Alex's question to Astra... and her response.

February 10, 2016: Junkie XL Talks About the Score to "Batman v Superman"Print

Soundtrack Tom Holkenborg, better known to fans as Junkie XL, is not only the joint-composer with Hans Zimmer on "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", but he's also responsible for the score on another superhero movie, "Deadpool". In a new interview with ComicBook.com Holkenborg talks about the responsibility of taking on these larger-than-life fictional characters.

    "Let me tell you this, these superheroes are way bigger than all of us together," Holkenborg says of Batman and Superman. "This is a history that goes back to the Greek mythology, if you will, with half-gods. People over thousands of years have always been fascinated by stories of people that were half-gods. Stories about people with incredible powers, inhuman powers. Even the bible is full of them."

    In a world where everything has been done before, Holkenborg strives to be original with his work.

    "Now let's go back to Superman or Batman, Superman... Keeping that in the back of your head, it makes little or no sense to examine what somebody else had done over the last ten or twenty years," he says. "Because in fifty years from now, when we're all dead, somebody else is going to take a stab at Batman vs. Superman. Do you know what I mean? You don't want that person to say, 'Oh, let's look back and see what Hans Zimmer and Tom did there in 2016.' It's like, 'No, he's going to do his own thing that he feels fits the time or fits at the movie.' That's exactly what Hans and I did. We made the movie our own. We observed it. We came up with the best possible solution for that movie in combination with the wonderful Zack Snyder. It's really what that is."
