December 9, 2014: Major Batman Character Not in "Batman v Superman"Print

Dawn of Justice BadAssDigest.com claims to have received plot details about "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", specifically in regards to a major Batman character who won't be seen in the movie. The "scoop" also outlines possible locations for fights scenes in the film.

Click on the "S" icon to reveal the spoiler info:

The writer of the article, Devin Faraci has a track record for being on the money with his scoops, however, I'm not sure if he's speculating or giving his own personal opinion when he further states, "Batman is the lead of Justice League - he's the guy who puts the team together". Isn't Batman usually the one reluctant to join the other superheroes?

Mild Mannered Reviews - Action Comics #37

Scheduled to arrive in stores: December 3, 2014

Cover date: February 2015

"SmallVillains"

Writer: Greg Pak
Penciller: Aaron Kuder
Inker: Aaron Kuder

Reviewed by: Michael Bailey

    Pak continues to have a nice balance of flashbacks and current action in his non-crossover Superman stories. I like how he uses them to illustrate the point he is trying to make in the present. As I have written before we know very little about this Superman's early years and it is hard to trust Grant Morrison's run because he played so much with time. It is hard to know what was real and what was Mxy. So it's been nice to see these bits and pieces from his youth. There is the chance they could get a little tired but I am not there yet.

    Not a whole lot happened in this issue. Sure there was some action and the bits with Hiro were fun but it was basically some flashbacks surrounding small increments of plot movement. That may sound like a complaint but it isn't. I like that Pak is taking his time here and letting the atmosphere and mood build. The mystery about what it ultimately behind everything is intriguing and as long as I am entertained and engaged I should have few problems.

December 8, 2014: Details on "Krypton" TV SeriesPrint

Krypton Back in late October rumors surfaced of a possible new TV series called "Krypton" being developed by "Man of Steel" screenwriter David Goyer. Now The Hollywood Reporter has confirmation about the TV series, along with a few story details...

    From Warner Horizon Television and DC Comics, Krypton takes place years before the Superman legend we know, when the House of El was shamed and ostracized. This drama, which is in development, follows the Man of Steel's grandfather as he brings hope and equality to Krypton, turning a planet in disarray into one worthy of giving birth to the greatest Super Hero ever known.

    Ian Goldberg (Once Upon a Time, FlashForward) will pen the script and exec produce alongside Goyer. The story was conceived by both Goyer and Goldberg.

December 8, 2014: Greg Pak Gives Hints About Superman's JokerPrint

Batman/Superman #17 Newsarama.com caught up with "Batman/Superman" writer Greg Pak to discuss the new (or is he?) villain hounding Superman in the current story line, which kicked off with last month's issue #16.

    November's Batman/Superman #16 felt like a jumping-on point. Was that something you were hoping to do as the book gets back to its monthly shipping schedule? With the new artist?

    Pak: Absolutely. We're thrilled to have Ardian Syaf on board as our regular artist. He's amazing - just killing it with every page, from the little character bits with the kids in the hospital to the big stylized splash page with the Joker face.

    And yes, we wanted to launch a big, new storyline with Ardian with issue #16. It's entirely new-reader-friendly while carrying on the big themes we've been developing throughout the series.

    This is also introducing (or reintroducing?) a huge new villain for Superman. A hidden assassin is attacking Superman's friends with an insane degree of ruthlessness and power - and the big question is "Who is Superman's Joker?"

    Oh, now you've got me wondering if this "Joker" villain is a re-introduction - interesting hint there, Greg. But I think what's most shocking about the first issue of the story were the deaths - of the Superman impersonator and the whale. What kind of a statement about the perpetrator of these crimes were you hoping to make?

    Pak: This is Superman's Joker - meaning he's a horrifying, unpredictable psychopath who will do whatever he can think of to hurt Superman, maybe even just for fun.

    The Joker is terrifying enough, of course. But this is a villain with the power to threaten Superman. He may be the most dangerous and unpredictable villain Superman's ever faced.

December 8, 2014: Jeremy Irons Talks About Alfred in "Batman v Superman"Print

Jeremy Irons In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter actor Jeremy Irons spoke briefly about his role as Alfred Pennyworth in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice".

    Irons wouldn't divulge much about his upcoming role as Bruce Wayne's right-hand man in the big-budget Batman v. Superman, but called his Alfred "not a large role" due to the many characters in the Warner Bros. film. "He is quite a different Alfred than we have seen so far. Zack Snyder had very clear views about what he wanted," he said. "I would just say he's more hands-on perhaps than just a butler."

"Death of a Deadman"

Writer: Tom Taylor
Penciller: Mike S. Miller
Inker: Mike S. Miller
Cover: Neil Gouge with Rex Lokus

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

    Injustice: Year Three has been throughly disappointing. It's going through the motions, and for a book that does little more than do that, this is a new low and lull: a negative rip on the greatest heroes ever, that refuses to do even that this year. The best scene of the book was to see Dick Grayson again, but that's also a reminder of the silly way he was taken and the equally simple ways that so many characters have met their end in this series. Jason Blood and Ragman are snuffed out like candles, but Black Canary is given a new life via magic. The favoritism cannot be ignored, but so long as it sells, it will be endured.
