September 29, 2014: Protest Rally Filmed for "Batman v Superman"Print

Anti-Superman Protest SPOILER WARNING: Photos and details below may be considered spoiler information for fans not wanting to learn too many details about "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice".

Production for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" on the streets of Detroit today saw an anti-Superman protest being filmed. Protestors in the scene were holding placards and banners with negative slogans about Superman, which included a Superman dummy that was set on fire.

Some of the messages on the signs included: "SuperDeath", "When invasion becomes reality, revolt becomes duty", and "Thanks for the 'help'" surrounded by flames. One sign even had the Swastika symbol within a diamond-shaped shield instead of the familiar "S".

September 29, 2014: Long Beach Comic Con Panel Talks Lois Lane and Women in ComicsPrint

Lois Lane Saturday's "Ladies First: The Impact of Women in Comics" panel at the Long Beach Comic Con in California saw a number of female comic book creators discussing arguably the most famous woman in comics, Lois Lane...

    Barbara Randall Kesel, a writer and editor who has worked at DC Comics, said the character's portrayal "rises and falls with what is happening with women in the real world" - from being a "spitfire" like new career women in the '30s and '40s, to being diminished to "comedic foil" for Superman as women were being encouraged to relinquish jobs and focus on their husbands in the '50s, to becoming a more feminist character as the equality movement has advanced.

    Lane is "a superhero without any powers," popular artist Amanda Conner, who co-writes DC's "Harley Quinn" series, said.

    "She's got that assumption of authority - 'Of course it's going to work out,'" Kesel noted.

    "And you know that [Superman] is going to think that's really hot," Conner added.

    Cecil Castellucci, writer of the Eisner Award-nominated "Odd Duck," said she'd been trying to pitch a miniseries about the hard-charging reporter for years because she's "obsessed with Lois Lane for the very reasons that you're saying," and agreed that the spitfire aspect of the character's personality is what would appeal to Clark Kent.

    In current DC stories, though, it's not Lois who Superman is dating, but Wonder Woman.

    Kesel called that "a step down" to some crowd laughter and applause.

Batman Ben Affleck was a special guest on the Today show in the U.S. to speak about his new movie "Gone Girl", but he also spoke about playing Batman in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", and the initial negative online reactions to his casting...

"You have all of this attention - some of it's positive, some of it's negative. I think, in the end, you make the movie and it either works or it doesn't."

Reviewed by: Adam Dechanel

    It was a good story showing parallels of Shazam and Superman, their ethos, their power, their symbolism.

    The problem is... I don't care. I want Superman. No matter how good or honorable Shazam/Billy can be that's who he is - not Superman.

    I liked that in the end he embraces his identity and goes on with the good fight, I'm not sure why the public was actually as hostile as they were despite his actions but then as I said this Five Years Later stuff is constricting and I would like more investment in the character in the here and now. I don't like that the story I'm actually interested in with Ulysses has to go on hold to push another series.

    As a story ABOUT Superman it's a success... it really is but I expect nothing less from Dan Jurgens. As a story IN the Superman title it just shows Lois to be a frost queen and Billy the victim of self esteem deficit.

    It is always difficult to review a book when the action takes precedence, but there is a huge offering of character to keep everyone happy.

    We add Aya, Saint Walker and John Stewart into the mix, some light humor from Arrow, some emotion from Chloe and Lois, the predictable twist of a Luthor double cross but we still have a long way to go and we aren't even halfway through the story yet!

    One thing this Smallville series does writing wise is deliver on its promises.

September 28, 2014: Did "Batman v Superman" Film at the Wayne ManorPrint

Filming for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" continued in full force this weekend, with the production changing location to beginning filming at the Ransom Gillis House, an abandoned mansion in Detroit, which many speculate may be the exterior of the Wayne Manor, although the run-down appearance of the home has many speculating otherwise.

In the video below we see a Gotham City Police car race down the street (interestingly named Alfred Street), where it screeched to a halt in front of the building.

A number of cast trailers were labelled with the names of "Alfred", "Lois" and "Chuck". It would appear that Jeremy Irons and Amy Adams may have been on location, but just who "Chuck" might be is anyone's guess.

September 28, 2014: Ben Affleck "Very Excited" About "Batman v Superman"Print

Batman In an interview with the Boston Globe, Ben Affleck spoke briefly about "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" and his excitement for the project...

    "I can tell you that I'm very excited and it's very exciting. I can tell you that in my entire career, I haven't had so many people come up to me and say how much they're looking forward to the movie. Naturally, that's a lot of pressure, but I love the script, I love the director, I love the studio. I'm very much looking forward to it, but it's two years away so it probably doesn't bear talking about anymore."
