July 28, 2015: Superman Forever Podcast - Episode 93 - "Batman v Superman" TrailerPrint

Superman Forever Podcast Bob Fisher became the permanent host of the Superman Forever Radio podcast with episode 79. On that episode Bob talks about his comic book origin in general and his origins with Superman in particular. His history with Superman began in 1956 with the Adventures of Superman TV show starring George Reeves and Bob's first Superman comic book was Superman #43 from a trunk full of old comics in his grandfather's barn.

"Superman has been part of my life since 1956. I hope that if you listen to the podcast you will enjoy my little babbles but will also understand why Superman has meant so much to me for almost 60 years." - Bob Fisher.

In Episode 93 of the Superman Forever Radio podcast Bob Fisher takes a closer look at the Batman v Superman SDCC trailer. Bob also catches up with the TRUTH storyline in Action Comics #42 but mostly he talks about the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer and gives his opinions of the trailer and what may be in store for the movie itself. Is Bob looking forward to the movie or are his feelings about the movie the same as his feelings for the current storyline in the comics?

July 27, 2015: Empire Magazine "Batman v Superman" Cover Image PhotoPrint

Empire Magazine As we reported yesterday, the September 2015 issue of Empire magazine will feature "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" on the cover, with exclusive content about the superhero showdown within.

Today, the cover image has found its way online, showing the full body photos of Batman and Superman without the Empire logo and other wording covering the two superheroes.

    "In this movie, everyone has split into different directions as to how they feel about this alien," explains Henry Cavill. "Some people love him, some hate him. Other people fear him. Is he a tyrant?"

    At the heart of Empire's access-all-areas coverage this month is a trip to the heart of the Batman V Superman brains trust and a chance to meet the man piloting this superhero behemoth, as well as his stars, and get the scoop on the origins, development and execution of this unprecedented super-mash.

    Of course, the blockbuster also introduces Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman and Jason Momoa's Aquaman in a way that will then spin directly into The Justice League. To any doubters, Snyder is keen to stress the methodical, planned through-line that supports this newly expanded DCverse. "I want all the other directors of the other films to be able to stretch their legs and do what they want, but at the same time there is a big interconnected universe."

July 27, 2015: Three Preview Clips from "Justice League: Gods and Monsters"Print

Warner Bros. Animation has released three new clips from "Justice League: Gods and Monsters", the all-new DC Universe Original Movie scheduled to be released tomorrow, July 28.

The first clip features Superman (voiced by Benjamin Bratt), Wonder Woman (Tamara Taylor) and Batman (Michael C. Hall) preparing for battle with the U.S. Army... and a question as to whether or not this trinity will be perceived as saving or ruling the planet. The clip also includes the voice of Tahmoh Penikett as Steve Trevor.

The next two clips come from ComicBookResources.com...

Superman
Wonder Woman

    Animation legend Bruce Timm returns to the popular DC Universe Original Movies with his unique new vision of a Justice League you've never seen before. "Justice League: Gods & Monsters" features a Superman born of General Zod's blood, a Batman with a healthy dose of bat in the man, and a Wonder Woman rising from the ranks of the New Gods. This ain't your daddy's Justice League. They are as likely the world's saviors as Earth's despotic rulers. When a group of famed scientists experience untimely "accidents," a government task force follows the trail of clues to the Justice League - and into a high stakes game of intrigue, mystery and action that asks the question: How do you serve justice to those above the law? The star-laden voice cast includes Michael C. Hall (Dexter) as Batman, Benjamin Bratt (Law & Order, 24) as Superman, Tamara Taylor (Bones), as Wonder Woman; Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds), as Lois Lane; C. Thomas Howell (E.T., Southland), as Dr. Will Magnus; Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter films, Dig) as Lex Luthor, Richard Chamberlain (Dr. Kildare, The Thorn Birds) as Highfather, and Tahmoh Penikett (Battlestar Galactica) as Steve Trevor.

The film was released by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Digital HD on July 14, and is available as a Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on July 28.


July 27, 2015: Bruce Timm Talks "Justice League: Gods and Monsters"Print

Justice League: Gods and Monsters Animation legend Bruce Timm returns to the popular DC Universe Original Movies with his unique new vision of a Justice League you've never seen before in "Justice League: Gods and Monsters". Timm sat down with ComicBookResources.com for a chat about this new animated movie.

    The thing that made it doubly interesting to me is the whole the thing is a little bit unpredictable. No matter what you do with Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, there's certain lines you can't cross with them. They're always gonna - at a certain point you go, "They won't do that." But with these guys, you don't know what they're gonna do because they're not the characters that you know. To me that was really exciting, just to be able to explore the unpredictability-ness of it.

July 26, 2015: Superman Radio Show's 75th Anniversary Celebrated at Comic-ConPrint

Superman on Radio On Thursday, July 9 at 10.00am at San Diego Comic-Con, a panel consisting of former DC Comics president Paul Levitz (World's Finest), Len Wein (creator of Swamp Thing and Wolverine), Mark Waid (The Flash, Captain America), and moderator Anthony Tollin (Smithsonian Superman on Radio) got together for "Up, Up and Away: 75th Anniversary of the 1940 Premiere of the Superman Radio Series", a panel which discussed the legendary radio program that introduced Jimmy Olsen, Perry White, Kryptonite, and the Superman-Batman team into the Superman mythos, and its importance in expanding the Man of Steel's popularity.

    Tollin said that the radio show's opening had defined Superman for many that grew up listening to the show. Jimmy Olsen aside, the Superman radio show also introduced Perry White, Kryptonite, and was the first medium to bring Superman and Batman together for their first team-up.

    Tollin and Waid both credited the radio show in Superman's meteoric rise in pop-culture, with Tollin adding that the Man of Steel was the first superhero to move beyond comic books; he appeared in 30 million daily newspaper strips and five million people listened to the radio show.

    "There's no pop-culture precedent for this," said Waid. "If you can imagine that Superman first appeared in the summer of 1938 and by the end of 1939 and 1940, he was everywhere. In newspapers, the New York World's Fair, at Macy's doing appearances, toy stores... on radio, everywhere." Waid chalked it up to smart, calculated marketing that made the character's presence felt everywhere immediately.

    Bud Collyer - the voice of Clark Kent and Superman - was called the "forgotten Superman" by Tollin, who noted that Collyer played The Man of Steel for a remarkable 1,500 radio episodes for almost 10 years, versus George Reeves' better-remembered television portrayal that would follow in the 1950s; that show, titled "The Adventures of Superman," lasted 104 episodes.

July 25, 2015: Gene Luen Yang Talks "Superman" and Lois LanePrint

Lois and Superman Newsarama.com caught up with writer Gene Luen Yang to chat about the current "Truth" arc in the Superman comic books, his story in the "Superman" title itself, and the relationship between Clark Kent and Lois Lane. Here's part of the interview...

    Among all the other Superman writers, what you're writing is a prequel to Lois' decision, so she's a big part of the story. Can you talk about Lois' role in your comic and what it's been like to develop her relationship with Superman in the New 52 universe?

    Yang: I get it now, you know? I've always liked the Lois and Clark dynamic, through multiple incarnations. I was a huge fan of the Bruce Timm animated series, and of course the live action Lois & Clark series. I watched that when I was college. So I've always liked their dynamics through their different incarnations.

    But after I signed on to do Superman, I went back and read these early issues of Action Comics and Superman, all the way back to the 1930s and '40s, and I realized that the things that people love about Lois have been there from the very beginning.

    It's not like she was a response to the social changes that happened between her creation and now. She was just ahead of her time. She was very much a point to the future, I think, even in the 1930s and '40s.

    However, the current incarnation of Lois and Clark are not romantically involved right now. Each of them has somebody else as their significant other. But there is still this tension between them, and it's this tension that has multiple layers. They're competitors at work. They're also colleagues at work. There is an underlying attraction between them, but at the same time, they see friendship as just as valuable as a romantic relationship. And maybe that's a reflection of where we are as a society as well. I think for a long time, romantic relationships have been seen as a pinnacle of human relationship, and more and more, I see evidence of people saying friendship can actually be just as important.

Read the entire interview at Newsarama.com.

"Superman #42", which was scheduled to be released on July 22, will now hit shelves on July 29.
