April 29, 2016: Brandon Routh Reflects on "Superman Returns" Ten Years OnPrint

Superman Returns Believe it or not, it's been 10 years since "Superman Returns" was released on the big screen in 2006. EmpireOnline.com caught up with Superman himself, Brandon Routh, to ask him about the movie 10 years on...

    "That will be a book someday, when I fully realize that whole experience," smiles Routh, currently starring as Ray Palmer/The Atom in the TV series DC's Legends Of Tomorrow, "but I think just the lack of knowing what was going on for so long was definitely a challenge, because I felt the need to uphold an image. No one asked me to uphold one, but that's how much I cared about the character. I felt certain things might be off-limits, certain roles. At least for the first couple of years when I thought we'd be coming back. As it got further away, that became less and less of an issue."

    Routh expresses that he really likes the movie. While acknowledging that Superman should have thrown a few more punches and that he would have preferred more practical flying effects than CG, those are not areas where he was able to have any influence. "Those are," he says, "small, personal things. But I think it was a very nice movie; it may not have been the Superman movie everyone wanted and I completely understand that - it's hard to please everybody - but I'm very proud of it still. And proud of Bryan and everyone who worked so hard to make it."

Mild Mannered Reviews - Superman: Lois and Clark #7

Cover date: June 2016

"Arrival" - Part 7

Writer: Dan Jurgens
Penciller: Lee Weeks & Stephen Segovia
Inker: Scott Hanna, Art Thibert, & Jay Leisten
Cover: Lee Weeks and Brad Anderson

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

    The scene between Jon, Lois, and Clark is well-handled. What could have been a cringe-worthy exchange came across excellently for a couple of reasons: Jurgens knows how to write in the voice of a child. An extremely powerful child, but a young boy nonetheless. Jon displays the fluid emotions of a kid, moving from glee, to indignance, to curiosity, but through it all, he channels the balance of his father, which is displayed as well in the issue. When Superman takes apart Blackrock, he does so both literally and figuratively. Displaying a spark of indignance when learning that situation was created for a mere television show. He dispatches Blackrock, and his umbrage for more important things, just as Jon lets go his outrage for the important questions that he needs to pose and have answered. It's a very fine parallel, and that serves to connect Jon and Clark more so than the abilities that they each possess. Jurgens wisely interrupts the dialogue, as it's not a conversation that can be delivered to satisfaction in a few panels, and there is still plenty of story to happen in this and next issue.

April 28, 2016: Watch Wonder Woman's First Appearance from "Batman v Superman"Print

Wonder Woman A few days ago Japanese film site Eiga.com posted a 45 second clip from "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" in which Wonder Woman makes her first appearance in the movie.

Apparently this clip was officially released by Warner Bros. Japan. I waited a few days to post it in the hopes that we'd get a higher resolution version (higher than the above 480p version). I guess we'll just have to wait for the Blu-ray/DVD releases.


April 27, 2016: "Supergirl" Close to Second Season RenewalPrint

Supergirl In early March, CBS Network CEO Les Moonves told the Deutsche Bank Media, Internet & Telecom Conference that the TV network planned on renewing "Supergirl" for a second season, but no official announcement has been released since.

At the time Moonves was quoted as saying, "We have about five new shows on this year. Of those five, I believe all five of them will be renewed, and we own four of them."

"Supergirl" was obviously that one show not owned by the network, being a Warner Bros. property.

Today Variety reports that "Supergirl" is close to receiving that renewal announcement, but the show wasn't as popular as CBS was hoping.

    Freshman drama "Supergirl" wasn't the huge hit some hoped for, but count on it flying into another season - especially after that stellar example of corporate synergy with "The Flash" crossover, which resulted in increased viewership.

Look for an official announcement on "Supergirl" Season Two in the near future.

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

    Still trying to put a finger on what exactly happened here aside of more padding. Actually, nothing occurs aside of more padding. The Lex Luthor portion makes little sense, as while readers may know that Lex has a hand in Bizarro's creation, it hasn't been shown that Bizarro does. Bizarro returns to Germany first and Luthor second, which undercuts the impact of him arriving before Lex with Trickster's mangled corpse. Once again, nothing of worth occurs; there is no progression, just padding. It's obvious where the story is going, why it's going there, but we're going to be dragged at a snail's pace to the when. What has been done to deserve such a contemptuous situation? Injustice has some of the most loyal readers I know, and surely they deserve a better wrap up to a five year storyline. Perhaps, they don't. Who knows? It's been such a slog to get this far, but the end, the blessed end is in sight. Stay the course!
