April 23, 2015: VideoLab asks: What if "Man of Steel" was in Color?Print

Man of Steel Many a fan has commented on the lack of color or desaturation of Zack Snyder's films and images. Many felt "Man of Steel" was dark or drab, and it seems that the people at VideoLab agree...

    VideoLab attempts to turn back time and restore the natural color & brightness in shots from Zack Snyder's Man of Steel. Turns out there was a beautiful superhero movie hiding underneath the bleak coloring.

NOTE: There are some doubts over whether VideoLab have darkened what they claim in the video is "original" footage to over exaggerate the difference between their "restored" version.

April 22, 2015: DC Comics and Mattel Launch 'DC Super Hero Girls'Print

DC Super Hero Girls A New Super Hero Universe Designed Just For Girls, Slated For Fall 2015

Mattel to Launch Company's First Action Figures for Girls

Unprecedented Initiative to Include Digital Content, TV Specials, Made-For-Videos, Publishing, Toys, Apparel and Other Products

Random House Children's Books to be Master Publishing Partner

The LEGO Group to be Exclusive Construction Partner

Beginning in Fall 2015, DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. Animation, Warner Bros. Consumer Products and Mattel join forces to launch DC Super Hero Girls, an exciting new universe of Super Heroic storytelling that helps build character and confidence, and empowers girls to discover their true potential. Featuring DC Comics' most powerful and diverse line-up of female characters as relatable teens, DC Super Hero Girls will play out across multiple entertainment content platforms and product categories to create an immersive world.

Developed for girls aged 6-12, DC Super Hero Girls centers on the female Super Heroes and Super-Villains of the DC Comics universe during their formative years - prior to discovering their full super power potential. Featuring a completely new artistic style and aesthetic, DC Comics' icons such as Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Bumble Bee, Poison Ivy, Katana and many more make their unprecedented teenaged introduction. Each character has her own storyline that explores what teen life is like as a Super Hero, including discovering her unique abilities, nurturing her remarkable powers and mastering the fundamentals of being a hero.

"DC Entertainment is home to the most iconic and well-known Super Heroes including Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Batgirl," said Diane Nelson, President of DC Entertainment. "DC Super Hero Girls represents the embodiment of our long-term strategy to harness the power of our diverse female characters. I am so pleased that we are able to offer relatable and strong role models in a unique way, just for girls."

The initial launch of DC Super Hero Girls in Fall 2015 will include an immersive digital experience, original digital content and digital publishing - providing opportunities for girls to interact with characters, learn about the storylines, and engage in customizable play. TV specials, made-for-videos, toys, apparel, books and other product categories will begin to rollout in 2016.

"Developing a Super Hero franchise exclusively for girls that includes all of the key components of a comprehensive entertainment experience - from content to consumer products - is something we are excited to be doing in conjunction with our great partners," said Brad Globe, President of Warner Bros. Consumer Products. "It's really an honor to be part of this cultural moment and to be delivering a concept so rooted in a relatable and empowered theme that the characters of DC Comics are uniquely able to present."

As master toy licensee, Mattel is collaborating with DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Bros. Consumer Products on DC Super Hero Girls' narrative creation, interactive digital activations and ultimately a toy line launching in 2016. Mattel category-leading firsts include a line of characters for the action figure category, an area of the industry that has been primarily developed with boys in mind, and fashion dolls featuring strong, athletic bodies that stand on their own in heroic poses.

"Partnering with the best and being the best partner is of paramount importance," said Richard Dickson, President, Chief Operating Officer, Mattel. "Together with Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment, the DC Super Hero Girls franchise will further expand our already powerful girls portfolio. We know Super Hero is a culturally relevant theme and the DC Super Hero Girls franchise will engage and inspire girls, providing cues to explore heroic acts through play and into real life."

The Random House Books for Young Readers imprint of Random House Children's Books has been appointed the master publishing partner for the franchise and will be creating a portfolio of books that will bring the DC Super Hero Girls world to life, beginning in Spring 2016. Random House's publishing program will be complemented by a series of original graphic novels from DC Entertainment. The LEGO Group will also be key to building the DC Super Hero Girls franchise, leveraging their experience and success engaging girls in creative construction play to bolster this universe through an array of LEGO® building sets designed to inspire girls' imaginations. Additionally, consumer products partners around the world will be engaged in creating a merchandise line dedicated to DC Super Hero Girls across all key categories.

April 22, 2015: Henry Cavill Says "Batman v Superman" Isn't a Superman SequelPrint

Henry Cavill MTV caught up with Henry Cavill and his "Man from U.N.C.L.E." co-star Armie Hammer at last night's CinemaCon 2015 in LA, and asked Henry about "Batman v Superman", whether he's seen any footage beyond the teaser trailer, and whether or not "Batman v Superman" is a Superman sequel or not.

"I've only seen a little bit of ADR stuff, but that's it, and that wasn't even in color."

"I'm hoping to see it [the whole movie] some time this year, for a friends and family screening or something. But I really know nothing about what the finished product looks like."

"I wouldn't call this a Superman sequel. This is Batman versus Superman, so it's a separate entity altogether. It's introducing the Batman character, and expanding upon this universe, which was kicked off by 'Man of Steel'."

"It's an introduction to the [Batman] character, and ultimately an introduction to 'Justice League'."

Meanwhile, Collider.com also caught up with Cavill and Hammer at CinemaCon and tried to get confirmation from Henry as to whether he'll be at San Diego Comic Con this year.
