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?

July 27, 2015: Empire Magazine "Batman v Superman" Cover Image PhotoPrint

Empire Magazine As we reported yesterday, the September 2015 issue of Empire magazine will feature "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" on the cover, with exclusive content about the superhero showdown within.

Today, the cover image has found its way online, showing the full body photos of Batman and Superman without the Empire logo and other wording covering the two superheroes.

    "In this movie, everyone has split into different directions as to how they feel about this alien," explains Henry Cavill. "Some people love him, some hate him. Other people fear him. Is he a tyrant?"

    At the heart of Empire's access-all-areas coverage this month is a trip to the heart of the Batman V Superman brains trust and a chance to meet the man piloting this superhero behemoth, as well as his stars, and get the scoop on the origins, development and execution of this unprecedented super-mash.

    Of course, the blockbuster also introduces Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman and Jason Momoa's Aquaman in a way that will then spin directly into The Justice League. To any doubters, Snyder is keen to stress the methodical, planned through-line that supports this newly expanded DCverse. "I want all the other directors of the other films to be able to stretch their legs and do what they want, but at the same time there is a big interconnected universe."

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

Hall) preparing for battle with the U.S. Army... and a question as to whether or not this trinity will be perceived as saving or ruling the planet. The clip also includes the voice of Tahmoh Penikett as Steve Trevor.

The next two clips come from ComicBookResources.com...

    Animation legend Bruce Timm returns to the popular DC Universe Original Movies with his unique new vision of a Justice League you've never seen before. "Justice League: Gods & Monsters" features a Superman born of General Zod's blood, a Batman with a healthy dose of bat in the man, and a Wonder Woman rising from the ranks of the New Gods. This ain't your daddy's Justice League. They are as likely the world's saviors as Earth's despotic rulers. When a group of famed scientists experience untimely "accidents," a government task force follows the trail of clues to the Justice League - and into a high stakes game of intrigue, mystery and action that asks the question: How do you serve justice to those above the law? The star-laden voice cast includes Michael C. Hall (Dexter) as Batman, Benjamin Bratt (Law & Order, 24) as Superman, Tamara Taylor (Bones), as Wonder Woman; Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds), as Lois Lane; C. Thomas Howell (E.T., Southland), as Dr. Will Magnus; Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter films, Dig) as Lex Luthor, Richard Chamberlain (Dr. Kildare, The Thorn Birds) as Highfather, and Tahmoh Penikett (Battlestar Galactica) as Steve Trevor.

The film was released by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Digital HD on July 14, and is available as a Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on July 28.


July 27, 2015: Bruce Timm Talks "Justice League: Gods and Monsters"Print

Justice League: Gods and Monsters Animation legend Bruce Timm returns to the popular DC Universe Original Movies with his unique new vision of a Justice League you've never seen before in "Justice League: Gods and Monsters". Timm sat down with ComicBookResources.com for a chat about this new animated movie.

    The thing that made it doubly interesting to me is the whole the thing is a little bit unpredictable. No matter what you do with Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, there's certain lines you can't cross with them. They're always gonna - at a certain point you go, "They won't do that." But with these guys, you don't know what they're gonna do because they're not the characters that you know. To me that was really exciting, just to be able to explore the unpredictability-ness of it.

Visit ComicBookResources.com for more videos of their Bruce Timm interview.
