October 18, 2014: Superman Costume Statue of Murdered Boy UnveiledPrint

Baldwin Statue You'll recall that back in July DC Entertainment reversed their initial decision to allow a Toronto family to use the Superman "S" shield on a statue dedicated to the memory of five-year-old Jeffrey Baldwin who died in 2002. Today the official unveiling took place in Toronto's Greenwood Park.

The life-sized bronze statue sees Baldwin dressed up as Superman, an image familiar to anyone who followed the inquest into the boy's death.

    The five-year-old boy died in 2002 after suffering horrific abuse at the hands of his maternal grandparents, but the life-size statue in the park at Greenwood Ave. and Dundas St. E. depicts the little boy as seen in one of the few happy moments in his short life - wearing a Superman costume.

    "Hopefully the statue will be a reminder to people of the need to report (suspected abuse) and possibly save a child's life," said Todd Boyce, who led the charge to have the bronze statue made, at the unveiling.

    "There's so much support and compassion for Jeffrey," said an emotional Todd Boyce, the Ottawa father who spearheaded online fundraising efforts that raised more than $36,000 for the memorial. "So much that he didn't have in his life, but he has it now."

Superman Homepage reporter Patrick Asselin was in attendance at the unveiling, and took the photo (shown right) of the statue.

October 18, 2014: Lex Luthor Benefit Brings Stars to FilmingPrint

SPOILER WARNING: Details on what was filmed at the Broad Art Museum in East Lansing over the past few days is revealed below.

A letter sent to Latino-Review.com by an extra who (going against the confidentiality agreement they signed) revealed that the scene filmed at the Broad Art Museum in East Lansing was not at Luthor's home as many had speculated, but was at the Metropolis Central Library, where a party was being held to celebrate its reopening...

    A couple of on set people have confirmed the occasion for the party thrown by Lex Luthor. It is the reopening of Metropolis Central Library post the battle for Metropolis. Lexcorp funded the construction because "Intellect is man's biggest strength" which seems to be a direct shot at Superman.

    Other small details tied to that scene, the movie will have an almost red carpet montage where the rich and famous are asked their views about the Superman who appeared in the public eye recently. The red carpet setup is attached, and will include both Bruce Wayne and Lex Luthor being asked that question by Lois Lane and Clark Kent on the carpet.

Photos taken by Bananadoc reveal many of the main cast arriving on location for filming of the above-mentioned scene, including Jesse Eisenberg, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Tao Okamoto, Holly Hunter, and Ben Affleck.

Meanwhile, our good friend, Superman fan and FOX TV news reporter Jay Towers interviewed "Batman v Superman" Casting Director Maryellan Aviano, who revealed that some additional casting of extras was taking place today, with people with marching experience required. It was also revealed that Jay himself had been involved as an extra for the movie, and will appear in the film when it's released. Congrats Jay!


October 18, 2014: Is Jena Malone Playing a Female Robin in "Batman v Superman"?Print

Jena Malone Jena Malone, one of the stars of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire", who also worked with Zack Snyder on "Sucker Punch", was spotted on set with the director for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" back in August, which set off speculation about her being in the film... but those rumors were shot down by Jena herself who claimed she was just catching up with Zack.

But, as we know from Jason Mamoa, stars denying they've been cast in a role is nothing new, and it seems that Jena may indeed be playing a female Robin to Ben Affleck's Batman in "Batman v Superman" according to The Hollywood Reporter...

    While describing a scene that would be filming - a fight between Batman and Lex Luthor at a swank party - a reporter for the station dropped the news that the script featured a female Robin character - and that Malone could be playing her.

    The report then cut to a person claiming to be an extra - and the source of the information - who said that a multimillion-dollar lawsuit could be filed against anyone violating the movie's nondisclosure agreements. In a bid to protect the source, only the person's hands were shown and his/her voice was altered, giving the affair a Dr. Evil-meets-a-Munchkin vibe.

This is yet another indication that "Batman v Superman" is heavily inspired by Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns".

October 16, 2014: Scott Snyder Couldn't Be Prouder of "Superman Unchained"Print

Superman Unchained Newsarama.com sat down for a chat with comic book writer Scott Snyder for an indepth interview in which, amongst other things, he spoke about how "Superman Unchained" will end exactly how he always planned it to, and that he couldn't be prouder of how the story turned out. Here's part of the interview...

    Q: There are certainly some terrible images we see towards the end of that issue. Switching gears to Superman Unchained, can you talk about where this comic ended from where you and Jim Lee thought it would go? Did you accomplish what you set out to do as a storyteller with this book? Snyder: Honestly, it's one of the rare comics that is ending exactly where I pitched it to end. It's very weird as there are a lot of times where you'll see a callback from issue #1 - the boy with the binoculars looking at Wraith, Luthor's paper folding, this notion of what the sun means, who Superman is, the satellite that falls in the first issue - a lot of the things, both visual and narrative in nature, are echoed in issue #9. That was all designed from the very beginning.

    What Superman Unchained is all about for me - not to spoil it - is why I think Superman is great. It's meant to be a kind of challenge to the kind of conventional take on Superman, which is that he stands for "truth, justice, and the American way," that he's this monolithic symbol of all things that are good and right. To me, you start writing him and you realize he doesn't know what the hell he's doing half the time. It's basically trial and error. He's doing the best he can. It's not that he stands for anything; if anything, he stands for following your own moral compass even if that compass leads you to places that make absolutely no logical sense whatsoever. Spell your own doom. Why would you create a human identity, fall in love, or even grow affectionate towards all of your human friends and coworkers when you age much more slowly than them? In a few years, they're going to realize that something's wrong. Why would you ally yourself with no government if you know every government is going to be building weapons to take you down if you interfere with a protocol of theirs? Why would you help with some things, some catastrophic events but not others like political oppression?

    Superman, to me, is inspiring and wonderful because he isn't a straight beam of light that's always right. He's actually this zigzagging, trial-and-error beam of light, and in that, he's ten times as more inspiring than if he always knew the right thing to do. In that way, the last issue is very much about that idea.

    One of the things about issue #9 I love the most - again, not to spoil it - is that I think the person who understands that the best about Superman, in some ways, is Lex. There's a reason why, and it's a fun secret we reveal at the end of the issue. So it really ends where I hoped it would end, and I couldn't be prouder of it.

October 15, 2014: Warner Bros. Confirms Superhero Movie Slate Through 2020Print

Warner Bros. Today at a Time Warner investors meeting, Warner Bros.' Chairman and CEO Kevin Tsujihara outlined an aggressive content strategy for the Studio aimed at increasing profits while "doubling down on outstanding content, working with the best talent and maintaining the culture that makes Warner Bros. so great."

"The opportunity is huge. And no studio is better positioned to take advantage of it than Warner Bros."

"The demand for high quality video content is growing fast - in the United States and around the world - as new technologies have created new platforms and millions of new connected consumers," said Tsujihara. "The opportunity is huge. And no studio is better positioned to take advantage of it than Warner Bros."

As part of his presentation, Tsujihara announced a bold expansion of the industry's broadest theatrical slate, built around the largest, most important global franchises. Warner Bros. Pictures will release three LEGO-branded films over the next four years, building upon the enormous success of this year's "The LEGO Movie" ($468 million worldwide box office), starting with "Ninjago" in 2016, directed by Charlie Bean and produced by Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Phil Lord and Chris Miller. Batman will take a star turn in "The LEGO Batman Movie" in 2017, directed by Chris McKay, and the sequel, "The LEGO Movie 2," will debut in 2018.

The Studio will release three pictures, in 2016, 2018 and 2020, based on best-selling author J.K. Rowling's original story and screenwriting debut, "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them." Set in an extension of her familiar wizarding world, featuring magical creatures and characters inspired by Harry Potter's Hogwarts textbook and its fictitious author, Newt Scamander, "Fantastic Beasts" will be directed by David Yates, who directed the last four Harry Potter movies, and reunite the filmmaking team of David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram.

And, in a massive expansion of the Studio's DC Entertainment-branded content, Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema will release a slate of at least 10 movies - as well as stand-alone Batman and Superman films - from 2016 through 2020 that expands this prized universe of characters:

  • "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," directed by Zack Snyder (2016)

  • "Suicide Squad," directed by David Ayer (2016)

  • "Wonder Woman," starring Gal Gadot (2017)

  • "Justice League Part One," directed by Zack Snyder, with Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Amy Adams reprising their roles (2017)

  • "The Flash," starring Ezra Miller (2018)

  • "Aquaman," starring Jason Momoa (2018)

  • "Shazam" (2019)

  • "Justice League Part Two," directed by Zack Snyder (2019)

  • "Cyborg," starring Ray Fisher (2020)

  • "Green Lantern" (2020)
