Lindelof: The Justice League problem? I think a lot of that depends on Man of Steel. The Justice League problem is not a problem of, who is the bad guy that Wonder Woman and Green Lantern, Superman, whoever you decide to pit them against. The problem is: What's the tone of that movie? They've been struggling with launching their own tone. The tone of Green Lantern is very different from the tone of The Dark Knight. They clearly inhabit two entirely different worlds. You want to feel like someone is establishing a world where the Justice League can exist, maybe Man of Steel is that movie. If Man of Steel works, and it's great, I think it starts to make sense where Paradise Island is in that world. Because that's an entirely different world than the one Christopher Nolan introduced.
THR: I was disheartened when Man of Steel was rated PG-13.
Lindelof: It should be PG. In the spirit of not throwing stones from the glass house in which one resides, the same should be said of Star Trek. The limitation between PG and PG-13, particularly as it pertains to violence - there's no sex in Star Trek; there are a couple of "s-words," but only because we already knew we were going to get PG-13. They are easily excisable. I always loved that moment in Temple of Doom when Indy says, "Shit." Because that's exactly what he would say. You don't use it to be gratuitous, but it's what a character would say in that moment. Donner's Superman is a very adult movie. It doesn't feel like it's being whitewashed or watered down in any way. It feels real, cool, fun, escapist and upbeat. The larger thing for Man of Steel, is like, "Yes, we all are consuming darker stories." Again, glass house. But it's like, "Is there any way we can get the word dark in it?"
Created by Superman fan Greg Brewer, this Superman tribute video uses the "Man of Steel" trailer and music, and adds in footage from "Superman: The Movie", "Superman II", and the "Smallville" TV series.
Thanks to Greg for sharing it with us.

Wildly Creative Game Franchise Expands to Include the Vast DC Comics Universe
Maxwell Must Help DC's Favorite Heroes Using the Super Powers of His Imagination!
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announces Scribblenauts Unmasked - A DC Comics Adventure, a new game that melds the boundless creativity of the award-winning video game franchise with thousands of DC ComicsTM characters and objects across DC Comics worlds - all drawn in the classic Scribblenauts art style. Created and developed by 5TH Cell, the game will be available for the Wii UTM system, Nintendo 3DSTM hand-held system and PC in North and South America and Australia this fall.
Scribblenauts Unmasked features a story where players embark as protagonist Maxwell on an imaginative and comical quest, taking them through GOTHAM CITYTM, METROPOLISTM, ATLANTISTM and other iconic locales from the DC Comics universe. In the game, Maxwell comes to the aid of BATMANTM, SUPERMANTM and the rest of THE JUSTICE LEAGUETM as they face the mightiest DC Comics Super Villains, such as THE JOKERTM, LEX LUTHORTM and SINESTROTM. Fueled by the player's imagination, Maxwell must use his magic notebook to put a stop to the villains' evil schemes and save the day!
Expanding on the video game franchise's innovation, Scribblenauts Unmasked features for the first time dynamically created puzzles called Heroic Feats that increase the game's replayability by continuously generating original scenarios requiring different solutions with each visit.
"Scribblenauts Unmasked includes action-packed missions with fan favorite DC Comics Super Heroes adding to the players' puzzle solving experience as the beloved Maxwell ," said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. "Challenges in the game encourage broader player choices all set in well-known locations of the DC Comics universe, interacting in new and inventive ways with a wide range of popular DC Comics characters."
"Fans of both DC Comics and Scribblenauts can really let their imaginations run wild with the Super Hero Creator in Scribblenauts Unmasked," said Jeremiah Slaczka, C.E.O. and Creative Director of 5TH Cell. "Players will be challenged to craft new and never-before-seen characters such as Wonder Joker or Bane Lantern and use them to solve puzzles or share them with friends."
A new Super Hero Creator tool available on Wii U and PC elevates the game's creativity by giving players the ability to produce their own Super Hero or Super Villain using any item from the DC Comics universe and then setting properties for how it behaves, changing its appearance and powers. Players can then share their creations with the community and download others.

LEGO Batman: The Movie - DC Super Heroes Unite provides the ultimate blend of action and humor guaranteed to entertain fanboys of all ages. The film finds Lex Luthor taking jealousy to new heights when fellow billionaire Bruce Wayne wins the Man of the Year Award. To top Wayne's accomplishment, Lex begins a campaign for President - and to create the atmosphere for his type of fear-based politics, he recruits the Joker to perfect a Black LEGO Destructor Ray. While wreaking havoc on Gotham, Lex successfully destroys Batman's technology - forcing the Caped Crusader to reluctantly turn to Superman for help.
The extras include various special edition DVD sets of the series should it be made.
SMGO.tv previously reported that DC Entertainment had refused its plans to crowdfund Young Justice and its fellow cancelled show Green Lantern: The Animated Series, before revealing that it had been given the go-ahead to attempt one campaign.
