September 30, 2014: Amy Adams on Location in Detroit for "Batman v Superman"Print

Looking very relaxed as Lois Lane in denim overalls, actress Amy Adams was photographed on set in Detroit, Michigan today as filming for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" continues.

    The 40-year-old actress is currently in Detroit, where she appeared to be dressed in character as persistent reporter Lois Lane while taking a call during a short break between takes.

    Sitting cross-legged on the grass close to a group of stationary trailers, Amy looked preoccupied as she chatted into her mobile phone before resuming work on another scene.

    Dressed in a pair of casual denim overalls, a loose grey T-shirt and white Converse trainers, the five-time Oscar-nominated star eventually made her way back across the exterior set, her phone still pressed against an ear.

September 30, 2014: Ben Affleck Influenced by "The Dark Knight Returns"Print

Dawn of Justice In a video interview with MTV, Ben Affleck revealed that his take on Batman is heavily influenced by Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns" graphic novel.

"I will say that I think Zack [Snyder] was heavily influenced by that," said Affleck. "I think everyone's heavily influenced by that... that's the seminal work. So, I don't think that there's any of these which have been made that haven't drawn from that book because it's so good. So, you know, I think if you're smart you steal from the best."

September 30, 2014: DC Comics Responds to Sexist Merchandise CriticismPrint

A recent public outcry over licensed T-Shirts and Baby onesies displaying what many consider to be sexist slogans has received an official response from DC Comics via a DC Entertainment spokesperson.

    DC Comics is home to many of the greatest male and female Super Heroes in the world. All our fans are incredibly important to us, and we understand that the messages on certain t-shirts are offensive. We agree. Our company is committed to empowering boys and girls, men and women, through our characters and stories. Accordingly, we are taking a look at our licensing and product design process to ensure that all our consumer products reflect our core values and philosophy.

Sexist Shirts Sexist PJs

One of the T-shirts at the center of the complaint features Superman and Wonder Woman embracing with the slogan, "Score! Superman does it again."

While hundreds of people have denounced Target for selling "sexist" baby pyjamas after a university professor posted a photograph of the clothing on social media. The boy clothing features a Superman logo and the line "Future Man of Steel," while the girl item has the same logo but the line: "I Only Date Heroes."

    That was an odd ending.

    Not a bad ending, mind you. Just an odd one. The creators promised us something different than the original DOOMSDAY story and they delivered on that promise. While there was a lot of action in this final chapter (unless you count the aftermath issues we'll be getting in a few weeks) there was a lot of character and thought put into the story as well. I'd go so far as to say that it was a very cerebral wrap-up, which I appreciated quite a bit.

    While there was a lot to like about this issue my favorite was the mental sparring between Superman and Brainiac. The different scenarios kept both Superman and me off balance and made for an engaging read. I like this sort of thing. The "what ifs," when done right, are usually entertaining and this story was a good example of that. More than anything I liked that this story emphasized how smart Superman is. Not "super" smart per se but intelligent enough to fight against Brainiac on the villain's own turf. It was a nice counterpoint to the "real" Superman, all roided out on the Doomsday Virus, tearing the ship apart.

"War & Peace"

    Full disclosure: I did not read the Wonder Woman that this issue continued from. I really regret that now because I felt very lost during the entirety of this issue. I just didn't know what was going on and because of that this story felt more like a bunch of random scenes thrown together than a more linear story.

    I want to make this perfectly clear; this is totally on me and not on Charles Soule. It's not his fault that I didn't know about the connection to the Wonder Woman issue and thus didn't buy it.

    At least that is what I am hoping is going on here and to be fair there were things about this issue that I liked quite a bit. Well, one thing. The interaction between present day Superman and Five Years Later Wonder Woman was very strong. This is what I have come to expect from Soule as a writer so this isn't a surprise. The only thing that kept me going here was how the Superman that seems to be from the present was helping the woman he loved even though something obviously happened in the ensuing five years.
