September 4, 2014: Helen Slater Attending New Zealand Armageddon ExpoPrint

Supergirl New Zealand's biggest pulp-culture event, the Armageddon Expo has announced that actress Helen Slater will be attending the Auckland event at the ASB Showgrounds.

Best known to Superman fans as Supergirl from the 1984 film, Slater is also known for her roles in such films as "The Legend of Bilie Jean", "City Slickers", "The Secret of My Success", "Ruthless People", as the voice of Talia in "Batman: The Animated Series", and of course as Superman's Kryptonian mother Lara on the TV series "Smallville".

The Auckland Armageddon Expo takes place across October 24-27 at the ASB Showgrounds in Greenlane, Auckland.

From its inception in 1995, the Armageddon Expo has grown to become the largest fantasy event in Australasia. With shows in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Melbourne and Hamilton, the Armageddon Expo embodies the ever-growing pulp culture phenomenon.

To keep up with the list of stars and events happening at the Auckland Armageddon Expo go to www.armageddonexpo.com. Tickets for the Auckland event are on-sale now from iTicket.co.nz.


September 3, 2014: DC Entertainment Pitching a Supergirl TV SeriesPrint

Supergirl BleedingCool.com claims to have received word that DC Entertainment is actively pitching a live-action Supergirl TV series, with Producer Michael Green, who was a co-writer on the "Supergirl" comic book with Mike Johnson, heavily involved in the pitch.

    Bleeding Cool has been reliably informed by a comics/Hollywood contact that DC Comics is currently actively pitching Supergirl as a TV series, and Green is attached.

After the 10 year success of "Smallville", which spurred on the recent success of getting superhero TV shows up and running, with "Arrow", "The Flash", "Constantine" and "Gotham" all currently in place, it only makes sense that a female superhero get a shot at the small screen too... seeing as how Wonder Woman's TV pilot was never picked up in 2011.


September 3, 2014: More Photos of Henry Cavill as Clark Kent for "Batman v Superman"Print

New and clearer photos of Henry Cavill as Clark Kent have been posted online today, showing the bespectacled Daily Planet reporter exiting the Gotham City Jail.

"Looking drastically different to the superhero alter ego he also portrays, Henry donned a plaid shirt under a brown jacket, as he carried a bag and donned Clark's signature black-rimmed spectacles", wrote the Daily Mail. "With a sombre look on his face, the star was surrounded by actors playing law enforcement officials as he stepped out of a local building being used as Gotham City Jail."

In other DC Comics related movie news, it has been confirmed that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will star as Black Adam in an upcoming "SHAZAM" movie.


September 3, 2014: Buyers of $3.2 Million "Action Comics #1" RevealedPrint

Action Comics #1 As we reported last week, $3.2 million was the winning bid on the 9.0 graded copy of "Action Comics #1", Superman's 1938 comic book debut, setting a record price paid for a comic book. The Hollywood Reporter caught up with the successful buyers of this iconic comic book...

    Vincent Zurzolo and his partner Stephen Fishler, owners of Metropolis Collectibles in Manhattan, set a new record for the nearly pristine Action Comics No. 1 Superman comic book last week. For the owners of the world's largest dealership for vintage comic books it's not lunacy, it's an investment.

    "We feel very confidently this was a good price and that we will be able to sell this for a profit. We really believe in the strength of the comic book market and that it has a long way to go," Zurzolo tells The Hollywood Reporter. While declining to say how high they would have taken the bidding, he adds, "All I can say is we were determined to buy it."

    Citing the rise in popularity of comic book conventions, television and film properties, Zurzolo remains bullish on the investment value of comics. Ever the salesman, he says. "In the last recession the stock market crashed, the real estate market crashed and even to this day, you can't make any money off your money in the bank. The only place I see the comic book market going is up, up and away."

September 2, 2014: Total Film Magazine on the Dawn of DC MoviesPrint

Total Film #224 Issue #224 of Total Film magazine features "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" photos of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman on the cover, with an interior article titled "The Dawn of DC".

The six page article discusses all three characters, while examining the possible characters who will make up the Justice League in a film about DC's greatest superheroes.

In regards to Henry Cavill as Superman the article says, "The Man of Steel has been a member of the Justice League of America ever since they first teamed up in 1960 to defeat alien starfish Starro the Conqueror (The Brave And The Bold #28), even if he was too busy in outer spase to assist on that occasion. But will he be its leader in Zack Snyder's film?" Total Film asks. "Not if Batman has anything to do with it..."

You'll find the article in the October issue of Total Film magazine.
