April 8, 2016: Behind-the-Scenes Video of "Batman v Superman" Visual EffectsPrint

Trinity Warner Bros. has released a new behind-the-scenes video examining the meticulous work that went in to the visual effects in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice".

ArtofVFX.com has an interview with Guillaume Rocheron from Moving Picture Company (MPC), in which he talks about the company's visual effects work on "Batman v Superman", collaborating with director Zack Snyder and VFX Supervisor John DJ Des Jardin.

    How did you upgrade the Superman and Batman digital doubles?

    Batman, in his Mech-Suit, and Superman were complex digital characters to create because they both had to hold up perfectly at IMAX resolution during their title fight sequence. We used both digi-doubles extensively, at times up to full frame on their faces. We went to great length in order to capture as much information as possible for each actor. GentleGiant gave us the ability to make multiple Lighstage face expression scans at very high resolution. Mova scans were captured for additional blendshapes and transitions. We also used what we called the ShandyCam, a custom made portable 6 DSLR rig. It was a fast and efficient way to grab synchronized photos of the actors on a shot per shot basis to feed our expression library.

    For some all CG scenes, we recorded the actors' performances with a helmet mounted camera with tracking markers on their face. Dan Zelcs and his rigging team developed new tools and techniques allowing us to maximize the use of all the real world data we had captured. It was the key to not only make good looking digital characters, but to maintain the likeness to the actors at all time. We updated our renderer to Renderman RIS, which dramatically improved the quality and accuracy of our shading and rendering.

April 8, 2016: Could The Flash Meet Kara Zor-El of Earth-1?Print

Worlds Finest In a Spoiler Room Q&A on EW.com, Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg talks about the possibility of The Flash coming across his earth's Kara/Supergirl...

    Is there a Kara Danvers on Earth-1? Could we meet her on The Flash?

    Yes, but... "Any Kara that exists on Earth 1 would also have to have been an alien," says EP Andrew Kreisberg. "It can't just be Kara Danvers from Poughkeepsie." Does that mean she could be a potential super (or maybe a power) girl on his Earth, too? "Sure, different costume, but sure," Kreisberg adds.

Whether a Superman/Kal-El or Clark Kent also exists in the Earth-1 universe is unknown.

April 8, 2016: Cat Staggs Talks About "Adventures of Supergirl" CoversPrint

Adventures of Supergirl - Chapter #1 DC Comics has published an interview with artist Cat Staggs to talk about the cover artwork on the "Adventures of Supergirl" comic book series, how it compares to working on those past "Smallville" comic books, and what's to come going forward. Here's part of the interview...

    Your very first cover, with Supergirl flying above between a few National City skyscrapers, really captures the fun and spirit of the show. How hard was it nailing that design? I'd imagine first issue covers are always a bit difficult. It really was. I wanted to capture the magic and feel of the show and the absolute joy their Supergirl has. From the beginning she was excited to be a hero. She wants to help make the world a better and safer place. She is finally being the Kara she has always wanted to be.

    How has it been working with Sterling Gates? Do you interact with him much?

    Sterling is AMAZING. He is an absolute joy to be around and his love for this character is contagious. That always makes it fun to work with someone. We are the Supergirl admiration society.

    You tend to draw a lot of covers, but you're also a phenomenal interior artist. Do you think you'll get a chance to draw an Adventures of Supergirl story? Would you like to?

    Thank you. I would love to and I am! I am working on a chapter right now!

April 8, 2016: Our Exclusive Interview with Dan JurgensPrint

Superman Homepage reporter T.A. Ewart sat down for chat with DC Comics writer Dan Jurgens to talk to him about "Superman: Lois and Clark", the upcoming "Rebirth" event, and what fans can expect from the pre-Flashpoint Superman we'll be reading about in "Action Comics"...

Action Comics #957 With Dan Jurgens set to take charge of "Action Comics" with June's issue #957, kicking off the new "Rebirth" era of the DC Universe, he explains how his book will fit in with the other Superman family titles and characters...

"On the other Superman title, with what Pete Tomasi and Pat Gleason are doing, because they're co-writing the book, that we have certainly talked and said, while we aren't necessarily going to continue from issue to issue across the series, sort of like we did back in the day with the Triangle Numbers, what we wanted to make sure of is that our worlds reflect each other. That our stories reflect consistent characterisation for these people. So, they might be telling one story with Superman. I'll be telling another story. But if you look at the supporting cast, the way that these characters exist, their intent and purpose, I think it's all going to be all tight and reflective of it being the same character."

"One of the things that should be noted is that we've certainly sat in a room together, myself, Pete Tomasi and Steve Orlando who is writing Supergirl, Phil Jimenez who is writing Superwoman, and talked about the idea that there's a place for all the characters to fit together and coexist. And so I think that's very important, especially for Superman and Supergirl. I think that even though these two might not be directly related, in the sense that for now they're from different universes. I think that the sensibility would still be there, especially on the part of Clark who would see her as a relative and as his younger cousin."

The Superman Homepage would like to thank Dan Jurgens for fitting us in to his busy schedule to participate in this half-hour interview.
