August 21, 2014: Does This "Batman v Superman" Newspaper Prop Hint at Kryptonite?Print

Kryptonite? ThePropStop, a site which talks about movie props and costumes, has uncovered a newspaper prop reportedly created for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", which contains an article written by Lois Lane, that may hint at Kryptonite.

The Daily Planet newspaper prop article is titled "A City pf Neighborhoods", which talks about a university student who resides in Brick City (described as an "oft-neglected Hob's Bay port) in Metropolis, who gathered soil samples from eight neighborhoods within the city limits and, upon analysis, discovered toxicity levels that were extremely high.

A photo that accompanies the article (pictured), appears to be someone holding a toxic clay sample... or could it be a green meteorite?

August 21, 2014: Frank Miller Says "I Love Superman"Print

Superman Superman fans who have read (or watched) Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns" could be forgiven for thinking that the comic book creator is anti-Superman, with Superman portrayed in a less than flattering light in that much-hyped story. However, in an interview with Playboy Miller reveals that he actually loves Superman!

    "The Dark Knight [comic book] series is all from Batman's point of view," Miller told Playboy. "But if you look at Dark Knight 2, you'll see a Superman who's much calmer than the one in the first Dark Knight.

    "Batman and Superman are dead opposites. I love Superman. Do I love Batman more? They're not people. They're only lines on paper."

Miller goes on to admit that he cannot watch any of the Batman films, even Nolan's Batman movies, walking out of the theatre before the films are over.

    Superman: Doomed has been hit or miss for the most part, but unfortunately, the misses have squarely hit every issue of Superman/Wonder Woman. The story is just too long and without any gravitas to justify the length that's been taken to tell this particular story. Pak's work on Action Comics and Action Comics Annual drew on seed he had planted, which gave the reader a better chance at satisfaction, if those saplings were enjoyed to begin with. If you liked Baka, you were probably happy to see him back and play a significant role in his return. Superman/Wonder Woman doesn't have these sorts of seeds or saplings, and has to draw on others. We are given Mongul and Non, who are in a position to throw some major complications into the story, but they retreat by page 3. Martian Manhunter appears, but unless you've been following him, you might wonder as to what he's doing here at all. Cyborg makes the noble sacrifice, and it's pointless rather quickly. Wonder Woman returns to the Phantom Zone to bargain with Mongul, and the deal involves Warworld, something he could have done himself if he didn't grow a yellow streak and become the one alive. Superman isn't to be left out,as he allows himself to be consumed by Doomsday, and for no apparent reason other than he doesn't believe or know of another way to save the day, except for unleashing a solution that is equally destructive. It's poor fare to be given if one has followed the storyline. The lazy art doesn't give any consolations.

    One of the quandaries of Injustice is how Regime Superman could progress as far as he does, without a healthy amount of pushback from other heroes. One way to sort this out has been to make the resistance comprised of lower tier, lower powered heroes dependent on super-pills. In that manner, the Insurgency doesn't have the raw power to contest Regime Superman and the Justice League directly. However, it still begs the question of the super-power heroes, i.e., why do Flash, Green Lantern, Captain Marvel, Hawkgirl, etc., why do they fall in line with someone rushing at 100KPH to be the world's greatest despot? This installment gives a plausible reason: they're all jacked in some form or other. Common sense doesn't work in the Injustice universe, or any thought process aside of tawdry platitudes and no-win scenarios. When Ganthet finally shows himself and does what he could have done long ago, one has to ask why now? Why is Hal Jordan deprived of the ring, now? Why does Ganthet mindlessly destroy a plane, when he could have easily disabled it safely? The answers, of course, are given in the redundant plot, which is reminiscent of how Lois Lane was killed. If these things don't happen, how else can we get to the Injustice of the video game, and gods among us, help us, this is only year two.

August 20, 2014: "Batman v Superman" Cast and Crew ALS Ice Bucket ChallengePrint

Dawn of Justice It seems you can't go five minutes with someone else taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, and the cast and crew from "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" have also gotten into the action... although not Henry Cavill yet.

Known as the #IceBucketChallenge, the idea behind the social media campaign is that you either donate money to an ALS charity, or dump a bucket of ice over yourself. One you've made your choice, you nominate up to three friends to do the same within a 24-hour period, and so the cycle continues.

Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot and Zack Snyder have all accepted the challenge... surely it's only a matter of time until Henry Cavill gets involved.

Visit ALSA.org for more information about ALS and to donate to the cause.

August 20, 2014: Superheroes the Focus of "My Hero II" Art ExhibitionPrint

Artwork Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman and the entire pantheon of Superheroes will be the focus of "My Hero II", an art exhibition presented by Elisa Contemporary Art.

The exhibit, which opened August 4th at The Design Studio in Bridgehampton, NY, will run through September 8th.

    My Hero II pays tribute to the characters and the artists who bring them to life in four unique ways. We will be debuting "What Defines Us," a new vision of Batman envisioned in cut and layered Birch wood by Texas artist Mitch McGee. Batman is one of the only Superheroes who rely on intelligence, physical strength and agility plus technological know-how (not super-powers) to fight evil and keep Gotham safe.

    Superman and Wonder Woman will be soaring throughout the artworks including in the "Battle of the Sexes", a look at the Superhero lunch boxes of the past created by Hawaii Hyper-realist artists Peter and Madeline Powell. The Justice League will be collaged into the mixed media artwork of Watermill artist, Oliver Peterson.

    These Superheroes have captivated us for decades with their selflessness; their drive to do good and protection of others. They put themselves in danger, while saving others...and keep us all at the edge of our seats while we wait to see what happens next. They have come large and small; masked, caped and armored; male and female; aged and ageless. Always engaging and inspiring.

The exhibition is located at the Design Studio, 2393 Main St, Bridgehampton, NY, and is open Monday-Thursday 10 am - 5 pm; Friday/Saturday 10am - 5:30pm; Sunday 11am - 4pm.
