February 6, 2015: Superman and Batman's Secret Identities Revealed in "Bizarro League" ClipPrint

LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League vs. Bizarro League Warner Home Video has released another preview clip from the upcoming animated movie LEGO® DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League vs. Bizarro League which features Superman and Batman learning each other's secret identities.

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment invites Los Angeles fans to get an early look at its latest animated adventure - LEGO® DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League vs. Bizarro League - with a family-friendly event on Saturday afternoon, February 7, 2015. Filmmakers and members of the voice cast will attend the event for red carpet media interviews, a post-screening panel discussion and plenty of interactive fun with the fans and families in attendance.

The screening will commence at 2:00 pm at The Paley Center for Media (465 North Beverly Drive in Beverly Hills). The event will include a post-screening panel discussion, special prizes for kids in attendance, photo opportunities with LEGO® DC Comics Super Heroes standees, and an autograph signing on collectible posters.

Confirmed to attend the event are Nolan North (voice of Superman/Bizarro), Troy Baker (Batman/Batzarro), Diedrich Bader (Green Lantern/Greenzarro), Kari Wahlgren (Wonder Woman/Bizarra) and Khary Payton (Cyborg/Cyzarro).

A limited number of free tickets are available to the general public, and families are encouraged to come enjoy the film and festivities. Fans wishing to receive free tickets to the Los Angeles event on February 7 must RSVP via email to LEGOBizarroNY@gmail.com.

The body of all fan RSVP emails MUST include the first & last name of the entrant, a valid email address, and how many tickets are being requested. No need for pleas, no begging, no extra words - just three simple lines of information.

In LEGO® DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League vs. Bizarro League, Batman has joined the newly formed Justice League in order to keep tabs on Superman, a mistrust that is complicated by Superman's clumsy - but well-meaning - clone, Bizarro. Bizarro's creation of the Bizarro League has caused confusion amongst the world's greatest Super Heroes, but an even greater and mysterious threat may force the Justice League and Bizarro League to band together to defeat evil.

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, DC Entertainment and The LEGO Group, LEGO® DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League vs. Bizarro League will be distributed by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on February 10, 2015.


February 6, 2015: Geoff Johns Says Farewell to "Superman"Print

Superman #38 Geoff Johns has announced that this week's "Superman #38" is the second-to-last issue of his short run with John Romita, Jr.

    Superman #38 came out yesterday and JR and I wanted to say thank you, because the issue sold out!

    I have to admit, it's a little bittersweet, because not only is it our final chapter of the Ulysses storyline, it's also the penultimate issue to my short run on the title with the great and amazing John Romita Jr., as issue #39 will be my last.

    I’m incredibly honored to have been the lucky writer working alongside JR on his first-ever monthly book for DC Comics and I'm extremely proud of the work we've done, especially the final issue of the run which dives deeper into the fallout from Superman’s new power.

UPDATE: Eisner-winning comics creator Gene Luen Yang, known for his graphic novels including "American Born Chinese" and "The Shadow Hero," will make his DC Comics debut by taking on writing duties on "Superman," joining current series artist John Romita Jr.

February 6, 2015: Brandon Routh on Suiting Up as Superman and The AtomPrint

Brandon Routh At this year's Salt Lake Comic Con, Brandon Routh spoke to Good4Utah.com about his experience playing the Man of Steel in "Superman Returns", while also speaking about taking on the role of a different superhero, The Atom, in the hit TV series "Flash".

    "I grew up much like every other boy and girl, wanting to be Superman. Running around in my caped pajamas watching Superman endlessly on the TV. So it's amazing to have been able to play that character," said Brandon Routh.

    "It's awesome to meet fans, especially the kids. People who are passionate about Superman, he's had a powerful influence on people's lives. It's very cool when I'm the Superman kids have grown up with, that's cool and special for me because Chris Reeve holds a special place in my heart," said Routh.

February 6, 2015: "Batman v Superman" Part of New Kodak Film AgreementPrint

Dawn of Justice "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" is one of the many motion pictures that are still being shot using film, specifically film supplied by Kodak, and this week Kodak announced it has finalized a new agreement with all the major Hollywood studios to continue that tradition.

    Kodak announced that it has finalized new film supply agreements with all six major Hollywood studios. As part of these agreements, Kodak will continue to provide motion picture film to 20th Century Fox, Walt Disney Co., Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc., NBC Universal Inc., Paramount Pictures Corp. and Sony Pictures for their movie and television productions.

    "Film has long been - and will remain - a vital part of our culture," said Jeff Clarke, Kodak chief executive officer. "With the support of the studios, we will continue to provide motion picture film, with its unparalleled richness and unique textures, to enable filmmakers to tell their stories and demonstrate their art."

    Kodak has been engaged in broad discussions with prominent filmmakers, studios, independent artists, production companies, and film processors to enable film to remain a fundamental medium. Last July, the studios made known their intent to play a key role in leading this industry-wide effort.

    Prior to the agreements being finalized, several highly acclaimed films were produced on film, including Oscar® nominees Boyhood, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Imitation Game, Interstellar, Foxcatcher, Into the Woods, Leviathan, Inherent Vice and The Judge. Additionally, some of the most-anticipated films of 2015 are being shot on Kodak film, such as Star Wars: Episode VII -The Force Awakens, Mission: Impossible 5, Batman v. Superman - Dawn of Justice, Jurassic World, Ant-Man, Cinderella, Entourage, and Trainwreck.

    The agreements announced today make it possible for Kodak to continue to manufacture motion picture film while also pursuing new opportunities to leverage film production technologies in growth applications, such as touchscreens for smartphones and tablet computers. This also positions the company to remain the premier supplier of camera negative, intermediate stock for post production, and archival and print film.

    "With the support of the major studios, the creative community can continue to confidently choose film for their projects," said Andrew Evenski, Kodak's President of Entertainment & Commercial Films. "We've been asking filmmakers, what makes a project ‘FilmWorthy.' Their responses have varied from the need for its exceptional depth to its distinctive grain, but overwhelmingly, the answer is ‘the story.' They need film to tell their stories the way they envision them, and hold a strong desire for it to remain a critical part of their visual language. Enabling artists to use film will help them to create the moments that make cinema history. The agreements announced today are a powerful testament to the power of film and the creative vision of the artists telling them."
