October 27, 2014: Rumor - David Goyer Developing "Krypton" TV SeriesPrint

Krypton According to BleedingCool.com, "Man of Steel" screenwriter David Goyer is involved in a possible new TV series called "Krypton".

    The name suggests a pre-Superman drama set on the planet Krypton, maybe involving the House of El, maybe Brainiac, maybe an end of the world cult, maybe lots of dragons flying around the place.

With the richness of Krypton's history and society, as seen in "Man of Steel", there were many calls for a prequel showing just how Krypton got to the point it did as introduced in the 2013 movie, with Russell Crowe even responding to many of the Twitter messages from fans.

While it's highly unlikely any such TV series would involve Russell Crowe, Michael Shannon, or indeed any of the cast from "Man of Steel", a show about Krypton's past leading up to its demise would definitely be of interest to many Superman fans.

We'll keep you posted on any news regarding this developing rumor.


October 27, 2014: Does Batman Have Kryptonite in "Batman v Superman"?Print

Batman with Kryptonite According to a report posted on Batman-News.com, Ben Affleck's personal trainer, Rehan Jalali has revealed that Batman's armored suit in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" will be covered in Kryptonite, and has the ability to fire missiles.

The information comes amongst a list of other notable details about Batman's arsenal, with the news that Ben Affleck will (like Henry Cavill in "Man of Steel") have a shirtless scene to show off his new physique.

Where and how Kryptonite is discovered remains unknown at this point in time. However, if Batman is going to have any hope of lasting more than two seconds in a physical fight with Superman, then Kryptonite would have to come into it.

"Spirit of Vengeance"

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

    While it's expected that the low installment would come, there was no indication or expectation that it would come this early. Taylor makes a biting commentary about the Batman, only to wash it away for the sake of... well, actually, nothing. It doesn't further the story and it's just a reminder of how much one has to bloviate to keep Batman in the mix in such surroundings where he's completely out of his depth. It would take a lot of thought to place Batman against the Spectre, and have him escape, let alone emerge victorious, and rather than put that thought into this chapter, the reader is given the worst possible sleight of hand: the one where one can see the trick and how insulting it is to the intelligence of the audience. It's a rehash of what was given in Year Two... and Year One for that matter, and so early in the game of this year, it's completely unnecessary. The most frustrating thing is that Taylor knows how to craft this type of scene.

    Was it the one month break? I am not sure but this was a deflated chapter in the storyline. We backtracked on the murder and the bait and switch was really felt with a seemingly out of the blue fundamental change in Neil/Ulysses. The villain Machinist turned out to be far from a great new villain he was built up to be and into a story trope and a bit of a dull one compared to how threatening he was to start with! The only plus was the very short scene of Daily Planet chatter and Perry swearing he would get Clark back where he belongs as part of their team. I hope the story can recover because it had such promise and that seems lost now.

Reviewed by: Adam Dechanel

    The impact on the cast is weighing heavily, and reliving Smallville's past seasons as they begin to wipe out, really upped the ante. I liked that the Blue Lantern ring found a new host and a worthy one at that. I am really disappointed that the story is nearing an end very soon. The energy in the story and the life breathed into characterizations is so refreshing that it will be a real loss to Superman fans!
