    This was a definite improvement over the last issue. Then again it didn't feel like I was reading some SMALLVILLE/CRIMINAL MINDS fan fiction so there's that. I realize that Landis isn't writing the definitive version of Superman with this series and even with that disconnect that comes from knowing I am reading a writer's take on Superman rather than reading the adventures of a version of Superman (Pre Crisis, Post Crisis, New 52, Earth One, etc.) this sort of story is more of the type that I want to read.

January 18, 2016: Voice Cast for "Justice League vs. Teen Titans" Animated MoviePrint

Teen Titans Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced the voice cast for the next DC Universe original animated movie: "Justice League vs. Teen Titans".

    Supervising producer James Tucker and director Sam Liu have put together a top-notch voice cast. The Walking Dead vet Jon Bernthal plays Trigon, a ruthless demon who shares a long comic book history with the Teen Titans. That includes his daughter, team member Raven, who will be played by Taissa Farmiga, best known for her roles in the American Horror Story franchise.

    Also in the cast are Jake T. Austin (The Fosters) as Blue Beetle, Brandon Soo Hoo (From Dusk Til Dawn: The Series) as Beast Boy, and Kari Wahlgren (Phineas and Ferb) as Starfire. The line-up also includes veterans of previous movies in this series, including Shemar Moore as Cyborg, Sean Maher as Nightwing and Stuart Allan as Robin. Returning Justice Leaguers are Jason O'Mara as Batman, Jerry O'Connell as Superman, Rosario Dawson as Wonder Woman and Christopher Gorham as the Flash.

Arriving in the second quarter of 2016, "Justice League vs. Teen Titans" sees Robin working with the Teen Titans after his volatile behavior botches a Justice League mission. The young team then must really step up to face Trigon after he possesses the League and threatens to conquer the world.

The script (which isn't based on any specific comic book story) was written by Bryan Q. Miller and Alan Burnett.

January 17, 2016: Winn Schott and the Return of Toyman on "Supergirl"Print

Season 1, Episode 10 'Childish Things' In Monday night's new episode of "Supergirl", Winn Schott has to deal with the return of his father... the villain Toyman, who escapes from prison to cause problems for both his son and Supergirl.

    Winn has made passing comments about his father being in jail, but all of those repressed feelings will come out full force when daddy dearest goes head to head with Winn's superhero best friend. "We learn who my father is," Jordan told TVGuide.com during a recent visit to the Supergirl set. "He's not a very good guy. He tries to rope me into his world again, which Winn wants nothing to do with."

    The unexpected family reunion will have big consequences for Winn, who has painstakingly tried to put a barrier between his family life and his life in National City with Kara (Melissa Benoist) and the Supergirl mission. "He's completely tried to forget that part of his life, tuck it in a box and never talk about it again," Jordan said. "The fact that he's sort of forced to face it and deal with it [evokes] a lot of things that he's been holding down. You kind of see he deals with everything with a little bit of humor, but that comes from a place of defense. We start to see that defense mechanism break down in a big way. Consequentially, it affects other things going on in his life at the same time."

Reviewed by: James Lantz

    After seven issues that had good moments and bad ones mixed in with a lot of rough patches, this series seems to be heading in the right direction. Dan Abnett's taking over as writer just proves what I've been saying about comics for years. There's really no need to restart a series from #1 when something doesn't work. It's sufficient to change part or all of the creative team as was done in the days before reboots. Forget the previous story arc. This is the true beginning of Earth 2: Society.

Soundtrack BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE - THE SOUNDTRACK

FEATURES COLLABORATION BETWEEN HANS ZIMMER & JUNKIE XL

AVAILABLE ON CD, DELUXE 2 CD SET, LIMITED EDITION 3 DISC VINYL DELUXE AND DIGITAL FORMATS

SOUNDTRACK RELEASES MARCH 18

WaterTower Music announced today the March 18 release of the soundtrack to the upcoming feature film "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," a collaborative effort by film composers Hans Zimmer and Junkie XL (aka Tom Holkenborg). Available digitally, on CD, 2-disc deluxe CD, and on Limited Edition 3-disc deluxe vinyl, the first public sample of the music has been made available HERE, and the album is now available for preorder. The 2-CD deluxe package, the digital deluxe version, and the 3-disc deluxe vinyl set feature over 90 minutes of music, five bonus tracks, an exclusive fold-out poster and liner notes from the composers. Additionally, the vinyl set features etched vinyl art and an album download card.

"Junkie XL is an incredibly insightful film composer. It was a perfect idea for us to work together on the 'Batman v Superman' score," explained Academy-Award-winning composer Zimmer. Grammy nominee Junkie XL showed equal excitement at the pairing, saying, "Hans has an incredible legacy, and I was extremely thrilled when he approached me to work on 'Batman v Superman' with him."

The composers discussed their close working relationship with director Zack Snyder. "Zack allows us to try things we haven't tried before. He's very supportive of the eccentricities that we bring to this," says Zimmer. Junkie XL concurred. "He's very open and accepting of our ideas, and infuses the creative process with an energy that inspires you."

"Hans and Tom (Junkie XL) created an incredibly compelling and interesting new musical world for Batman, while continuing to expand on the amazing world and themes Hans had previously created for Superman," noted director Zack Snyder. "By aligning their vision with my perspective and seeing the characters anew through the lens of the film they were able to support the visual aspects of movie in a way that elevates the film to another level. In so many ways, they become the final texture, the final note in the process of creating the world."

"This electrifying collaboration brings us such brilliant new character themes," commented WaterTower Music head Jason Linn, "While we've been fortunate to work several times with both composers individually, this experience has been uniquely thrilling."

A new promo video starring Geoff Johns and Kevin Smith has now been released promoting the special presentation:

Batman v Superman

    DC FILMS PRESENTS: DAWN OF THE JUSTICE LEAGUE invites viewers behind the scenes of the exciting new movies coming out of the DC Films universe, culminating in the thrilling world premiere of the all-new trailer for "Suicide Squad," DC's misfit crew of antiheroes forced into saving the world this summer, with director David Ayer. Hosted by filmmaker/writer/lifelong comics fan Kevin Smith, with special guest DC Entertainment's Geoff Johns, the special showcases the explosive landscape of DC's greatest heroes, kicking off with "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," in theatres this March, and with a sneak peek from the upcoming Wonder Woman feature film.

"DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League" will air on The CW on Tuesday, January 19 at 9.30pm.


January 15, 2016: Melissa Benoist Talks About Owning the Role of SupergirlPrint

Supergirl At the recent Television Critics Association press event, "Supergirl" star Melissa Benoist told those in attendance how she now feels about wearing the Supergirl costume, and what it means to have both Helen Slater and Laura Vandervoort on the show. Here's part of the interview...

    How much ownership do you take of the costume now? When you see yourself in it, do you feel like, "That's me!"

    Totally. Now, yes. I think I've gotten to the point where I feel very comfortable in it. I feel like every time it's on, I know something hard is coming up. Whether it's a fight or some kind of crazy, emotional scene with someone that is a nemesis or something that is hurting her because I think Supergirl putting on the suit entails putting on all of her baggage, to me.

    It's not too uncomfortable, unless it's 103 degrees outside - which we've done some days like that! You get a little bit of, if it's really hot, nothing up [top] breathes. If it's really cold, my legs are exposed.

    Did you go read the original ["For the Man Who Has Everything" story] to prep for the upcoming episode based on it?

    Did I read the comic? Oh yeah! The whole episode, it's been my favorite to play. I think it's beautiful. It's got this "Wizard of Oz" type feel to it. We talked so much about how Kara has lost and how important Krypton was to her, and to actually be Kara Zor-El on Krypton was a pretty magical feeling.

    What does it mean to you to have this sorority, in a sense, of Supergirls, with Helen Slater and now Laura Vandervoort involved in the show?

    It just feels good to honor the past. Not many people have played this character before. It's a special thing to be a part of. Not many people play Kryptonians, really. That's rare and unique. So I feel like Laura is an amazing addition to our show.
