November 3, 2014: Hans Zimmer Will Score Superman But Not BatmanPrint

Dawn of Justice Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer has revealed in an interview with ComicBookResources.com that he will only be scoring Superman's sequences in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", leaving Batman to Junkie XL.

    Next, you're doing another superhero film, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, featuring the Superman you've scored before for Man of Steel, and also a character that you've approached before in a different cinematic context, Batman. Are you doing a different take on Batman, or drawing from your established theme, or something else?

    You know something? I have agonized over it. I agonized over it, so much so that finally, I went, I don't want to betray what Chris, James Newton Howard and I did. And so I asked Zack [Snyder] if it would be OK if I called a friend in. And I'm going to be working with Junkie XL, who really is a great friend. He just finished the Mad Max score. I said to him, "You take care of Batman. I'll do the other guy." And Zack loved that idea. It's a way out.

Mild Mannered Reviews - Smallville: Continuity - Chapter #10

Released Digitally: October 31, 2014

"Continuity" - Part 10

Writer: Bryan Q. Miller
Penciller: Marcelo Di Chiara
Inker: Marcelo Di Chiara
Colorist: Cat Staggs

Reviewed by: Adam Dechanel

    Everything seems too good to be true. With two weeks left I can only guess at what is to come. Everything that has been leading up to this has neatly woven together and we're seeing things paying off in ways we never dreamed could have happened when the show was still on and indeed as it ended. The twists with Barbara and her legacy were genius and Superman, his speech along with a look into Martha's life, were just brilliant.

    Bryan Q. Miller should take on a Superman book when this series ends because I just can't get enough of how superb this book is.

October 31, 2014: More Supergirl TV Character DetailsPrint

Supergirl Following up from their earlier scoop about the premise of the live-action Supergirl TV series set to air on CBS next year, TVLine.com now has details on the character outlines for additional cast members we'll see join Kara and her foster sister.

CAT GRANT: The project is eyeing females in their 40s, open ethnicity, to play the founder of CatCo, a media conglomerate that Cat built from the ground up. Kara (Supergirl's mild-mannered alter ego) will work as a personal assistant to Cat, who is described as "J.Lo by way of Anna Wintour."

JAMES OLSEN: In his late 20s/early 30s, open ethnicity, James is a smart, worldly and (duh) attractive photographer for CatCo. Though an alpha male, his salt-of-the-earth nature elicits a huge ol' crush from Kara.

WINSLOW 'WYNN' SCHOTT: This twentysomething tech whiz/Comic-Con stalwart toils for CatCo as a programmer, unaware of his own (toying?) potential. Unware of her secret, he carries a torch for Kara, whom he lives next door to.

HANK HENSHAW: As an upstart CIA agent, Hank grew obsessed with intergalactic intel. Now in his 40s and lording over the DEO (Department of Extra-Normal Operations), he is on high alert when Supergirl reveals herself, worried that her otherworldly abilities pose a threat to humankind.

The "Supergirl" pilot is penned by Ali Adler (No Ordinary Family) and Greg Berlanti (Arrow), both of whom will be executive producers alongside Sarah Schechter (of Berlanti Productions) and Warner Bros. TV.


October 31, 2014: Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman" Secrets and SurprisesPrint

Dawn of Justice ABC reporters for WXYZ Detroit caught up with "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" director Zack Snyder as he and his crew prepare to say goodbye to Detroit, Michigan... but it seems Zack thinks they'll be back in the area for future movies, while also revealing that the movie has some secrets and surprises up their sleeve.

    "Absolutely. Absolutely, it's my hope to come back because we've established a lot of locations on the movie here," Snyder said in an exclusive interview with WXYZ.

    "I feel like we have to come back and shoot them as we continue our saga."

    As much as the director loved to reveal his passion for movies and this state, he laughed when we discussed the secretive nature of the production.

    "Yeah, a lot of secrets. You know, we just want the movie to be surprising when it comes out. We do a lot of crazy stuff in the movie so we wouldn't want you to get shortchanged by the Internet, which loves to do that by the way," he added.

October 31, 2014: Andy Diggle's Pitch for a "Superman/Judge Dredd" CrossoverPrint

Judge Dredd In an interview with ComicBookResources.com, comic book creator Andy Diggle revealed that he has a potential story idea for a Superman and Judge Dredd crossover.

"I've always wanted to do 'Dredd/Superman.'", said Diggle. "Dredd's version of justice with Superman's idea of justice are, frankly, such polar opposites that contrasting them would be very interesting. But I'm not holding my breath on that happening anytime soon."

    Your "Dredd / Superman" sounds like it would be really awesome. How far have you actually thought it out?

    I've given it a great deal of thought. In fact, I've got the whole thing plotted out, but I've never really pitched it because it doesn't seem like something that's ever going to happen. I think DC are rightly focusing on their core characters and are not so interesting in company crossovers these days. But if any of that changes, absolutely [I'd be up for it.] But trust me, I've got it all worked out. I'm not going to tell you what happens, though, in case I get to write it some day! [Laughs]

    I've never wanted to read a Superman comic book more than at this very moment. Do you think you could at least tease the premise?

    An object falls from space and crashes towards Mega-City One. The anti-missile lasers can't seem to vaporize the thing, and it hits the ground and demolishes a fortunately uninhabited area of ground. Turn the page. Cue close-up of tech Judges in radiation gear looking down into this crater. Superman is lying at the bottom of it. He's basically been blasted into a parallel dimension by a device created by Lex Luthor, which has partly depowered Superman. He's not as super as he used to be, partly also because of all the pollution in the atmosphere of Dredd's world. It's called the death belt, this layer of pollution and junk thrown up in the upper atmosphere by nuclear war. It cuts out the sun's rays, which depower Superman a bit.

    Dredd is not going to like having an illegal alien running around in his city. Superman is not going to be very keen on this fascist version of justice. It's no longer truth, justice and the American way, because it's no longer America: It's Mega-City One, creep!

    Things kick off from there. It gets a little more complicated, there's some twists and turns I'm not going to spoil here, but Lex Luthor is more heavily involved in the story than he would seem to be from the premise.

October 31, 2014: Supergirl TV Casting Call and Synopsis Details RevealedPrint

Supergirl Details have emerged for casting call information and synopsis outline for the live-action Supergirl TV series set to air on CBS next year.

    For Kara Zor-El aka Kara Danvers, the show is eyeing Caucasian females, age 22 to 26, to play 24. As the series' mythology goes, Kara at age 12 was sent from her dying home planet of Krypton to Earth, where she was taken in by the Danvers, a foster family who taught her to be careful with her extraordinary powers. After repressing said skills†for more than a decade, Kara is forced to bust out her super moves in public during an unexpected disaster. Energized by her heroism for the first time in her life, she begins embracing her abilities in the name of helping the people of her city, earning herself a super moniker along the way.

    The other lead role currently being cast is that of 26-year-old Alexandra "Alex" Danvers, Kara's gorgeous, brilliant, science-minded foster sister. Growing up, Alex was partly jealous of her sibling yet also fascinated by her abilities, prompting Alex to learn as much as she could about alien anthropology, sociology and culture. Today, Alex works for a secret government organization and, alongside her heroic sis, will face many challenges, both mundane and super.

The pilot episode will be co-writen by Ali Adler (No Ordinary Family) and Greg Berlanti, who will also serve as an executive producer for the live-action Supergirl TV series with Sarah Schechter.

As the cast and crew of "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" wrap up filming in Detroit, Michigan this week, it looks extremely likely that they'll be moving very soon back to Yorkville, Illinois, where additional crew members have been busily working to get the Kent Farm and Smallville Cemetery locations ready.

Superman Homepage reporter Jeff Frost went down to both locations in Yorkville, Illinois where he saw that lighting equipment has been set up, while one crew member was raking up leaves into black garbage bags ahead of filming.
