August 23, 2014: Washington D.C. to Feature in "Batman v Superman"Print

As filming for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" continues in Michigan, with preparations for the production to head to Morroco soon, new photos have emerged hinting that Metropolis, Gotham and possibly Themyscira are not the only locations we'll see in the movie... with Washington D.C. cars, buses and taxis spotted on location.

Washington D.C. MetroBus
Washington D.C. Police Cars
Washington D.C. Taxis
Capitol Building Washington D.C.

Batman-News.com reports on some possible spoilers that tie in with the Washington D.C. vehicles...

    A major action scene was shot in July in one of the big studios in Detroit. Without giving too much away... it involves Superman and the United States Capitol building in Washington D.C. (pictured above). Superman will have to answer for what happened at the end of "Man of Steel". Half the public blames him for all the death and destruction. If it wasn't for Superman being there, General Zod would have never come to Earth.

As always, these rumors on story elements cannot be substantiated at this point in time, but the vehicles indicate that a scene or scenes will definitely take place in Washington D.C.

August 23, 2014: Super Robin Williams TributePrint

Robin and Chris As everyone knows, earlier this month the world mourned the death of Robin Williams. Many Superman fans know that Robin Williams and Christopher Reeve were very close friends. While I did post a quick message on both Twitter and Facebook at the time, the fan art shown here (by Cynthia Sousa) caught my eye today, and I felt it deserved to be posted here as a tribute to both men, who made our lives so much better through their talents.

In his book "Still Me", Christopher Reeve related a few stories about Robin Williams...

    "The first person I met at Juilliard was the other advanced student, a short, stocky, long-haired fellow from Marin County, California, who wore tie-dyed shirts with track suit bottoms and talked a mile a minute. I'd never seen so much energy contained in one person. He was like an un-tied balloon that had been inflated and immediately released. I watched in awe as he virtually caromed off the walls of the classrooms and hallways. To say that he was 'on' would be a major understatement. There was never a moment when he wasn't doing voices, imitating teachers, and making our faces ache from laughing at his antics. His name, of course, was Robin Williams."

And then, after his horse riding accident in which he suffered severe spinal injury, Christopher Reeve relates this story about lying in the hospital ICU...

    "As the day of the operation drew closer, it became more and more painful and frightening to contemplate. In spite of efforts to protect me from the truth, I already knew that I had only a fifty-fifty chance of surviving the surgery. I lay on my back, frozen, unable to avoid thinking the darkest thoughts. Then, at an especially bleak moment, the door flew open and in hurried a squat fellow with a blue scrub hat and a yellow surgical gown and glasses, speaking in a Russian accent. He announced that he was my proctologist, and that he had to examine me immediately. My first reaction was that either I was on way too many drugs or I was in fact brain damaged. But it was Robin Williams. He and his wife, Marsha, had materialized from who knows where. And for the first time since the accident, I laughed. My old friend had helped me know that somehow I was going to be okay."

Their deaths, ten years apart, saddened us all...but their lives brought us so much joy.
