May 28, 2015: "San Andreas" Director Would Love to Direct a Superman MoviePrint

Superman In a video interview with DigitalSpy.com, "San Andreas" director Brad Peyton reveals that he really, really wants to make a Superman movie.

    "I really, really like Superman. Obviously, Batman is super cool, but the only problem with Batman is that Tim Burton - who is probably my biggest influence as a kid - made 'Batman,' and then Christopher Nolan just knocked that out of the park. Superman, I really like the juxtaposition. It's cool that the strongest guy in the room can be the flub at work." He added that he finds the love story between Lois Lane and Superman/Clark Kent to be "phenomenal."

Aided by the cybernetic Super Hero known as CYBORG, guests are recruited to join the JUSTICE LEAGUE reserve team and trained to use high-tech laser blasters in preparation for anything the Super-Villains have in store for them. Traveling in six-passenger vehicles, riders take to the streets and take aim against The Joker, Lex Luthor, and his relentless robot army, in the thrilling BATTLE FOR METROPOLIS!

The multi-degrees-of-freedom motion-based ride vehicles were created by Oceaneering and are equipped with six interactive laser blasters per vehicle to help guests find the JUSTICE LEAGUE and free them from their captors. Complete with 4D effects of simulating fire, cannon blasts, and explosions, JUSTICE LEAGUE: BATTLE FOR METROPOLIS is the ultimate dark ride adventure.

JUSTICE LEAGUE: BATTLE FOR METROPOLIS features custom-designed, state-of-the-art animatronics.

May 27, 2015: "Convergence" Finale Changes the DC MultiversePrint

With the 8th and final issue of the "Convergence" saga released today, the conclusion to this 2-month event appears to have dramatic effects on the DC Multiverse heading into June.

IGN.com has published an interesting article which delves into the possible ramifications brought about by "Convergence", with two splash pages showcasing the DC multiverse as it now exists.

Multiverse

Multiverse

    These images were accompanied by this dialogue from the character Telos - "They have done it. Reality is resetting, stabilizing. Each world has evolved, but they all still exist." The takeaway seems to be that DC isn't permanently bringing back the old worlds and characters that featured in Convergence, but that these characters continue to live on in new forms. That said, Telos' dialogue could also be taken to mean that the old worlds do still exist in some tangible form.

    So what does all of this mean for DC now? On one hand, Convergence appears to be the final chapter for these pre-New 52 characters. Thanks to Convergence, the classic DC Universe has now evolved into the New 52 universe and the torch has been passed. Between this series and Multiversity, the new DC multiverse has been firmly established.

    It's quite hard to separate personal affection for Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes, with what was given in these two issues. This tie-in suffers from an overall lack of care, creativity, basic love of the characters. Superboy and the Legion haven't been a fixture for some time, and doing a story with them needs to tap into the energy that was produced by their dynamic, and not merely nostalgia. Two different writers on two different issues is a far cry from the work that's been on other tie-ins, such as Convergence: Superman or Convergence: Shazam! It gives the notion that this book was just one of several, and if that's the case, then there's little point in investing in this story, and it begs the question: who is the story supposed to service? Moore's writing is stronger than what was given in issue #1, but it's not enough to rescue a tale that does little more than tread water. There are many a great Legion story, and more reasons than not to have Superboy be a part of that mix, but this sadly, is not one of them.

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

    In terms of the Regime Superman/Montoya donnybrook, that was actually entertaining, though it might be the aftereffect of having seen Mad Max: Fury Road after breaking night. Montoya's despondency comes across very well, and does go some distances towards justifying her actions and excusing the nonsensical decision that she makes. It's questionable that she would be able to relapse on alcohol, as taking the super-pill should make her immune to the effects. Here is where a good writer can go deeper, explaining that the pill intensified her dependency, just as it exacerbated Jim Gordon's cancer, or, perhaps, Montoya isn't a relapse case at all, it's just her depression that allows her to believe such is the case. Her decision seems rash even with the caveats applied, as it comes suddenly and from nowhere. The Insurgency is at it's lowest ebb since Injustice has been offered, but it's far from a nadir. However, as we've been given a great amount of time and space since the Insurgency's last defeat, it's on the reader to fill in the chasms that are left in storytelling, which Injustice readers seem to be ready and raring to do. Still, Montoya's desperation comes across as genuine, and her fall will definitely be worthy of emoting for some readers, and in that it's a step up from the last two installments.
