September 27, 2015: Michael Kogge Writing "Batman v Superman" Prequel NovelPrint

Batman v Superman It was revealed in a recent interview with the Santa Monica Mirror that author Michael Kogge is writing a "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" prequel novel.

    Kogge is also a big fan of comic books and the superhero universe. He is writing the "Batman v Superman" junior tie-in prequel novel for the Zack Snyder film coming out next March.

    "It's such a pleasure to be writing Batman and Superman," Kogge said. "I've always loved those characters so it's working with another mythology."

Not much else is known about the novel at this point in time. We'll keep you posted on any new details as they become available.

Bizarro #4

Mild Mannered Reviews - Bizarro #4 (of 6)

Scheduled to arrive in stores: September 16, 2015

Cover date: November 2015

"Do You Believe in CIGAM"

Writer: Heath Corson
Penciller: Gustavo Duarte
Inker: Gustavo Duarte

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

    This is the most clever of the installments thus far, as Corson has applied more thought into Bizarro than would be expected. The lighter atmosphere allows for the co-opting of Zatanna's powers to plausible, but it's the usage of her abilities by Bizarro that displays Corson's creativity with the character. The ante is upped with Bizarro becoming normal, but the zany clowning doesn't end. It also leads to a cathartic moment between Jimzarro and Bizotto, one that speaks volumes on Corson's writing. Why? It wasn't something that needed to be done, but applying this layer to the story reminds the reader the story isn't all for laughs and giggles. There is still theme, setting, the elements of storytelling being taken into consideration, and in a period where DC Comics seems to be willing to do anything but that, Bizarro is a refreshing, almost comforting, episode.

September 25, 2015: Jesse Eisenberg on the Sophistication of "Batman v Superman"Print

Lex Luthor WeGotThisCovered.com recently attended an event where Jesse Eisenberg was promoting his new book "Bream Gives Me Hiccups", and during the interview he spoke briefly about his role as Lex Luthor in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", heaping praise on screen writer Chris Terrio and the themes explored in the movie...

    Since everyone here is obviously interested in writing in some capacity, I'll tell you that the man who wrote the movie, Chris Terrio, is absolutely phenomenal. He also wrote Argo. He's such a brilliant guy, so well read. He's interested in very sophisticated topics and discussions. So in Batman v Superman, even though it's a superhero movie, people who don't necessarily see films in that genre, like this crowd, will probably enjoy it. It discusses some very sophisticated and important themes.

"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" will be released in theaters on March 25, 2016.

September 24, 2015: Superman Television and Movie Costumes on AuctionPrint

Profiles in History's 74th Hollywood auction will see close to 2000 iconic Hollywood items go under the hammer from September 29 to October 1 - including an "Adventures of Superman" costume worn by George Reeves, and a "Superman Returns" costume worn by Brandon Routh.

Worldwide bidding begins at 11:00am PST on all 3 days and bids can be placed either in person, via mail, phone, fax or the Internet via eBay Live Auctions.

Reeves Costume George Reeves' Superman costume, which comes with the "Flying Pan" used in the flying sequences, is expected to fetch around US$100,000-US$150,000.

    This amazing Superman ensemble was worn by George Reeves in 26 second season episodes of The Adventures of Superman - the last year the show was shot in black & white. The gray knit wool suit (with Berman's Hollywood label) consists of tunic with under-strap, leggings, dark brown trunks, tan leather belt with oval brass buckle, brown cape and brown leather suede boots with rear zipper closure. Stitched on both the chest of the tunic and back face of the cape is the signature stylized "S" insignia in dark brown on a field of crème. The muscle under-suit is constructed of a durable synthetic satin-like fabric with sculpted rubber torso, suggesting muscular pectoral, abdominal and bicep muscles. At the end of the first season, George Reeves was hanging by some wires in an effort to achieve a flying shot. One of the wires broke and George fell about fifteen feet. He told producers he would never use the wires again and that they needed to devise a better way of "flying" him. Several special effects men were asked to come up with ways to achieve the flying shots without risking harm to Reeves. Special effects specialist Thol Simonson, along with others on his team, developed the system of using a molded fiberglass pan to hold Reeves when he flew; he would lay on the pan with his costume over the pan to conceal it from view. The pan was bolted onto a hydraulic system that would move him up and down and side to side while a blue-screen projection was running behind him to simulate flight. This 35 x 16 in. fiberglass and steel "flying pan" rig - the magic behind Superman's flight - is included with the costume and was used during Season 2 through to the final Season 6. Both the costume and the "flying pan" come with a LOA from Thol Simonson who kept the costumes following the production of the groundbreaking show. The costume is in unrestored condition exhibiting small areas of surface abrasion and minor tears and staining from production use. The muscle torso under-suit exhibits numerous stains and applied patching (during production) under the arms, yet the rubber still remains supple. The sequences of Superman in flight were the highlights of The Adventures of Superman legacy, and this hero Superman costume with special effects flying rig represents the finest, most complete and historic costume in the history of television to be sold at auction.

Routh Costume Brandon Routh's Superman costume , comes complete with the boots and cape, and is expected to sell for around $15,000-$20,000.

    Complete hero "Superman" costume consisting of a one-piece, blue, muscle-hugging, mesh bodysuit with hard rubber, red and yellow "S" insignia imbedded in chest, marked "Brandon #119." Zipper closure in back and at crotch and velcro cape anchor patches affixed at the shoulders. Bikini-brief style red mesh stretch shorts marked "Brandon." Hard rubber, red and yellow insignia belt with velcro closure. Red, calf-high, leather and rubber, zippered boots with Superman logo in the grip pattern of the soles. Signature red flowing cape of rubberized fabric with velcro pads at the neck for attachment to the blue body suit. Cape collar is labeled internally, "B.R. #48". Boots are stunt versions. This important and iconic hero costume is in very good condition, exhibiting some deterioration to the finish of the latex cape. Accompanied with an original Warner Bros. Studios COA.

Other Superman items on auction include a First Edition of "The Adventures of Superman" novel by George Lowther.

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

    The majority of this story is about a tidal wave that is about to crash into and kill the nameless Amazons of Themyscira. There has been no development of the Amazons, save the ones that we know. Artemis's incredibly ridiculous attempt at... actually, what in the world she thought to accomplish is something that can only make sense to Buccellato. There's no way the Amazons could have more than die against the force of the wave, so their supposedly noble stance comes across as insane. That being said, because there was no development, why should readers whether they survive or meet their fate? That this lot is saved where so many others have died is laughable. Zeus laying the smack on Regime is apropos, as he is a very powerful character and should be dealt as such, this just hasn't been Regime's Year, pun intended. He gets trounced by Wonder Woman, diseased by Apollo (which was never resolved), and slapped around by Zeus. It's becoming hard to remember what was so enticing about him in the first place. Pretty soon Harley Quinn will be strapping him down like she did Lobo.
