July 28, 2015: Empire Unveils Three New "Batman v Superman" ImagesPrint

The September 2015 issue of Empire magazine not only features "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" on the cover, but there is also exclusive content about the superhero showdown within, and today EmpireOnline.com has revealed three new images that appear within the pages of the magazine...

Superman
Batman
Lex Luthor

    First up is Cavill's Supes, looking like, a) he's inside the burnt-out ruins of Wayne Manor, and b) he's not there to measure it out for new soft furnishing. Below is his adversary, for the majority of the movie at least, in Affleck's Batman. Note the almost medieval shape of the Bat armour, designed to level the playfield when he's exchanging blows with Kal-El. The Bat signal - a legacy from the Commissioner Gordon era - is now being used to lure in Superman for a mighty set-to.

    Last but far from least, Empire boasts another look at Jesse Eisenberg's hip, RAM-brained superbad Lex Luthor. Suitably CEO-ish in bearing and Silicon Valley in garb, he's still lustrously maned - like Professor Xavier in X-Men, the hair gets its own arc in this franchise - and That ape-with-a-detonator T-shirt looks like more than a hint at the thoughts percolating inside his big brain.

Purchase the September 2015 edition of Empire magazine from EmpireOnline.com.


July 28, 2015: Dan Jurgens Talks About "Superman: Lois & Clark"Print

Lois & Clark #1 With Dan Jurgens returning to the world of Superman to write the newly-announced "Superman: Lois & Clark" comic book series, ComicBook.com asked him about the book and what fans can expect. Here's part of the interview...

    Right around the time you came on Superman the first time, they had launched Adventures of Superman, based on the radio and TV series of the same name. Is Superman: Lois & Clark named for Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman?

    I think what it really reflects is the relationship between Lois and Clark, and the whole idea is that I understand what you're saying about the TV show. That show was about their relationship. This book is about their relationship, wrapped in the world of Superman and with the addition of their son Jonathan.

    And it is how they live on this world. What are the ramifications of living in this universe where we've seen Superman's secret identity outed? That kind of thing. How have they been able to pull this off? How has no one noticed, "You look kind of like that guy?" That's part of the beard right now, for example.

    So it's a very different story, but at its core, it's a family book. It's a family unit. It's Lois and Clark and Jonathan and if you go back to the Convergence issues that I wrote, where Thomas Wayne talked to him about doing what he could do - "whatever you do, keep your child safe" - that's the core of the book in terms of that part of it.

    Superman has had a mission here all along, and we're going to explore all of that.

July 28, 2015: Gene Luen Yang "Superman" InterviewPrint

Superman #42 DC Comics has published an interview with "Superman" writer Gene Luen Yang, to find out more about the writer's background, his thoughts on Superman as a character, and how his title lines up with the other Superman books. Here are a few excerpts from the interview...

    How many issues will it take for your story to get to some of the events - the loss of Superman's power, making his secret identity public - that the other books are reacting to?

    The first storyline, "Before Truth," runs from issue #41-#44. At the end of #44, we'll see Superman the way he is in Action Comics #41 - a depowered, exposed Superman.

    What we're really trying to do is get to the core of who Superman is. So we're taking away a lot of his iconic visuals - we took away the spit curl, the cape. We left him with just the "S" and even that's not the same, it's more of the Fleischer "S" from the old animation.

    Personally, what do you like best about the Man of Steel?

    I have a love of super heroes in general. I started collecting super heroes in the fifth grade and I just loved them. But now as an adult, I look back on that and I wonder if some of it has to do with my being a child of immigrant parents. Superman, Batman, even the heroes from the competition - they were all created by these children of Jewish immigrants. I feel like they've embedded parts of their experience into the genre. And Superman himself is literally an immigrant.

July 28, 2015: Comic Creators Talk "Superman #42" and Lois Lane's RolePrint

Superman #42 Preview USA Today spoke with "Superman" comic book creators Gene Luen Yang and John Romita, Jr. to discuss this week's #42 issue and Lois Lane's role in outing Clark Kent as Superman. Here's part of the interview...

    Some fans were miffed at the thought that Lois would betray Superman and expose his secret identity to the world, and Yang agrees "it's a big deal to out one of your best friends like that."

    But Romita promises there's a "a very, very well-done explanation. It's not what you'd expect and everybody's making a concerted effort to not make people's eyes roll: 'Oh God, the same old (stuff) again.' It's difficult with a character this iconic and this old."

    Even with that coming between them, the artist says that Clark will still have an unavoidable connection with Lois - especially since he's become more humanized in every way recently.

    Romita and previous Superman writer Geoff Johns introduced a new ability to the hero's arsenal - a supremely powerful solar flare - that leaves him powerless for a time. He and Yang are now building on that: "He's not going to be great at realizing he's a little slower and weaker than he used to be," the writer says, "and that will have consequences."

July 28, 2015: Superman Forever Podcast - Episode 93 - "Batman v Superman" TrailerPrint

Superman Forever Podcast Bob Fisher became the permanent host of the Superman Forever Radio podcast with episode 79. On that episode Bob talks about his comic book origin in general and his origins with Superman in particular. His history with Superman began in 1956 with the Adventures of Superman TV show starring George Reeves and Bob's first Superman comic book was Superman #43 from a trunk full of old comics in his grandfather's barn.

"Superman has been part of my life since 1956. I hope that if you listen to the podcast you will enjoy my little babbles but will also understand why Superman has meant so much to me for almost 60 years." - Bob Fisher.

In Episode 93 of the Superman Forever Radio podcast Bob Fisher takes a closer look at the Batman v Superman SDCC trailer. Bob also catches up with the TRUTH storyline in Action Comics #42 but mostly he talks about the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer and gives his opinions of the trailer and what may be in store for the movie itself. Is Bob looking forward to the movie or are his feelings about the movie the same as his feelings for the current storyline in the comics?
