    Wonder Woman herself stated that this is a fight to the death, why is she offering Regime the opportunity to surrender, break the rules, and place her mother's life in further jeopardy? Inconsistencies like this weigh down what could be a good match-up. Unfortunately, this is going the way of the circuitous superhero fight, where one hero gets the upper hand, then the other comes back. Now, if that doesn't happen, then everything that's been displayed in this universe is called into question. I don't believe that Regime Superman, who survived Mogo, and pushed the planet into the sun, would cringe on his knees like a punk from a broken arm. Neither do I believe Wonder Woman could withstand his heat vision, particularly when the image of someone being blasted away right next to her shows its apparent force. This fight has done absolutely nothing to push the story further. In fact, it's a reminder of how much has been lost since Year Two.

    If you've read enough comics, then you're familiar with the tropes involved in a 'hero vs hero' fight. There's always some contrived situation demanding that the heroes battle each other, and the fight is usually lackluster, with rare exception. This will go down in the annals of yet another boring fight, part I. The abilities possessed by Wonder Woman and Regime Superman, especially with their absent moral code, should produce a striking battle. Instead, it's a rote, two-step, pablum match... with exposition no less. No super-speed, no combat strategy, and worst of all, this is a battle to the death. Why is Regime Superman holding back? This is Regime Superman, killer extraordinaire, and he wants to play light with Wonder Woman of all people? Wonder Woman, who's blood-thirst is exceeded by no man, hence why she's "Wonder Woman". She's going to go berserk and break something.

July 6, 2015: Cavill on More Stand-Alone Superman MoviesPrint

Man of Steel In another EW.com report, Henry Cavill is quoted as reiterating that "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" isn't exactly a sequel to "Man of Steel".

    "As far as the individual character is concerned, this is not a Superman sequel," says Cavill. "It's more of an introduction to Batman, an opening to Justice League, and an expansion of the world that was created in Man of Steel."

But will we ever see him in another stand-alone Superman film?

    "There's plenty of time for individual Superman sequels," the actor says. "He's a tough character to tell. People like the darker vigilante. I think it speaks to the human psyche more easily rather than the god-like being that we can't really understand. Once we have a more expansive universe we can delve more into the character of Superman and hopefully tell more stories."

July 5, 2015: Is a New Superman Video Game Being Made?Print

Superman Screen For years gamers and Superman fans alike have been hoping that Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment would get their act together and create a Superman game worthy of the Man of Steel. With the "Batman: Arkham" series of video games now complete, fans are speculating about what DC will come out with next.

A screen from what appears to be a possible new Superman game has found its way online. The graphic (found both as a still and as a motion GIF) is of a bio page showing the New 52 Skin for Kal-El aka Superman.

There's speculation that the game is in the works at WB Games Montreal, but there's been no confirmation or any other evidence beyond this one screen. The fact that the model of Superman in the GIF moves proves it's more than a fan-made Photoshop image, but where it's from is yet unknown.

July 4, 2015: EW Magazine Previews "Batman v Superman"Print

Trinity As we reported earlier, Wonder Woman, Superman and Batman are on the cover of the special Entertainment Weekly Comic-Con Preview magazine. The feature article on "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" within the magazine gives us further insight into the film, with EW having visited the set of the movie.

    Batman v Superman introduces a new Batman only four years after the release of the final film in Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy. Ben Affleck plays an older, wearier Caped Crusader, one drawn at least in part from Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns. "He's on the verge of being swallowed up by the anger and the rage that we see haunt this character in the other manifestations of it," says Affleck. "But this guy is further down the line and has become more embittered and cynical." Worried that Superman's unequaled power makes him more of a potential fascistic overlord than the hero we need, he makes it his duty to take him out of the sky for good.

    Not content to consolidate only two eggs in this basket, they've also thrown in appearances by Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Aquaman (Jason Momoa) for good measure. After all, this isn't just a single movie, it's a waystation to the upcoming Justice League double-fister, not to mention a whole slew of other attractions on the DC Extended Universe road map. And building a franchise into a potential behemoth is no easy work."It's a marathon. No, it's a marathon within a marathon," says Snyder. "Do you know that race from Death Valley to the top of Mount Whitney? It's, like, 100 miles and it's from the lowest point in the continental United States to the highest. It's crazy. Anyway, it's like that."

July 4, 2015: Zack Snyder Talks About Ending of "Man of Steel"Print

Man of Steel In the special Entertainment Weekly Comic-Con Preview magazine, director Zack Snyder talks about how "Man of Steel" will lead in to "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", and speaks directly about the damage seen in the final battle between Superman and Zod, and the criticism the movie received because of that death and destruction.

    "I was surprised because that's the thesis of Superman for me, that you can't just have superheroes knock around and have there be no consequences," says Snyder. The director says he had always intended for the dead to be counted. Indeed, Batman v Superman addresses these concerns head-on - Superman's victims serve as Batman's impetus to take him down. "One of the things I liked was Zack's idea of showing accountability and the consequences of violence and seeing that there are real people in those buildings," says Ben Affleck, who plays Batman. "And in fact, one of those buildings was Bruce Wayne's building so he knew people who died in that Black Zero event."

    "There are other superhero movies where they joke about how basically no one's getting hurt," Snyder says. "That's not us. What is that message? That's it's okay that there's this massive destruction with zero consequence for anyone? That's what Watchmen was about in a lot of ways too. There was a scene, that scene where Dan and Laurie get mugged. They beat up the criminals. I was like the first guy, I want to show his arm get broken. I want a compound fracture. I don't want it to be clean. I want you to go, 'Oh my God, I guess you're right. If you just beat up a guy in an alley he's not going to just be lying on the ground. It's going to be messy."
