Dawn of Justice On April 3 the Superman Homepage received word from a Bookings Manager at a U.S. movie theater that the trailer for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" will debut in IMAX on April 20, and will hit the internet the next day, April 21.

He also indicates that the trailer will be in a theaters on Monday, April 20 in front of prints of "Avengers: Age of Ultron" before the announced release with "Mad Max: Fury Road".

We'll know whether any of this information proves to be true on Thursday.

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


April 14, 2015: 2015 Superman Hall of Heroes InducteesPrint

Superman Hall of Heroes Mario Andretti, John Walsh, Medal of Honor Recipient Kyle Carpenter and 2014 National Teacher of the Year Sean McComb Honored as This Year's Heroes

Warner Bros. Consumer Products (WBCP) and DC Entertainment today announced this year's 2015 Superman Hall of Heroes inductees including a military hero, a crusader against crime, a racing legend and a passionate educator. The new inductees join thousands of everyday heroes who have been nominated for the Superman Hall of Heroes, an online gift-giving portal that empowers consumers to honor their personal heroes - those who have made a positive impact on their lives or the lives of others.

Each year, the Superman Hall of Heroes program inducts a new class of nationally recognized heroes from all walks of life. This year's honorees include:

  • Kyle Carpenter - Superman Hall of Heroes inductee Kyle Carpenter is a true American hero. He is the second living Marine since the Vietnam War, and the youngest Marine to be decorated with the Medal of Honor. His story of bravery, both in combat and in recovery from life-threatening injury, is inspiring to all.

  • Sean McComb - Superman Hall of Heroes inductee Sean McComb is one of the youngest National Teachers of the Year ever, earning this honor at the age of 30. His dedication to both his students and his profession is what truly defines a great teacher and he regularly goes above and beyond to make sure his students realize their full potential.

    Superman Hall of Heroes

  • Mario Andretti - Superman Hall of Heroes inductee Mario Andretti is a living legend. Throughout his career in motorsports, he was not only able to win at every level, he was also able to master every discipline in which he chose to race. Andretti took the checkered flag 111 times in his career, collecting national and world championships along the way. He is admired for his warmth, dignity and class and gives back to the community through organizations like Meals on Wheels, The Fund to Benefit Children and Youth and his various efforts in support of our troops and wounded warriors.

  • John Walsh - Superman Hall of Heroes inductee John Walsh is known internationally as a crime fighter, victims' advocate and host of "America's Most Wanted" television show. Walsh and his wife helped pass the Missing Children's Act of 1982 and the Missing Children's Assistance Act of 1984. The latter bill founded the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. He never sought the role, but fighting for justice has been his mission since July 27, 1981 when his six-year-old son, Adam, was abducted from a Hollywood, Fla., mall.

Inspired by Superman and the character attributes that define the world's first and most recognized Super Hero - an American icon who represents unwavering morals and an endless pursuit of truth and justice - the Superman Hall of Heroes is a gift–giving program that offers a fun and inspirational way for fans to pay tribute to their heroes by submitting their photo and story online to www.SupermanHallofHeroes.com where it will be showcased in perpetuity.

Superman Hall of Heroes The Superman Hall of Heroes program continues to spread goodwill throughout the year with The Red Cape Crew, a community outreach initiative that performs random acts of kindness in markets across the country. The Red Cape Crew contributes to local community efforts and follows the examples set by heroes to make the world a better place, one good deed at a time.

April 13, 2015: Official Credits for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice"Print

The official website for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" has been given a very minor update... the inclusion of a billing block showing the credits for the film.

Credits

The credits don't reveal anything we don't already know about the people involved in the film. There are some notable omissions, with Jason Momoa and other actors, who we know are in the film in some small capacity, not listed in the billing block. Which would indicate that the appearance of Aquaman, Cyborg and other future Justice League members will be very minor.

Batman does get top billing ahead of Superman, with Ben Affleck's name appearing first, ahead of Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, and Gal Godot.

It's also curious to note that composer Tom Holkenborg (aka Junkie XL) is not listed here, with Hans Zimmer solely credited for the music.

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

"Domesday"

Writer: Jeff King & Scott Lobdell

Inker: Jason Paz
Main Cover: Ivan Reis, Joe Prado, & Peter Steigerwald

Reviewed by: Jeremiah Boor

    Jeff King and Scott Lobdell absolutely refuse to move the story forward. Despite the previous "zero issue" having no effective progression or characterization, the creative team has decided to replicate its plot in this issue. Though we are introduced to more characters, nothing new is explored. The only new information the characters learn are the few things that the reader has already learned in the previous issue. The only thing worse than thirty pages of rudderless "story" mired in complacency and confusion, is sixty pages of "story" mired in complacency and confusion.

    The reason I put the word story in quotations, is because of how loosely I am forced to use the term. Every story should have a 1) character with a goal, 2) motivation and action to accomplish that goal, 3) an obstacle to obtaining the goal, and 4) an outcome to the striving to obtain the goal.

    Welcome home old friends. Welcome home.

    Dan Jurgens writes a story that beats with a heart, that reaches into the rich era of stories and cultivates a compelling and genuinely heartwarming story. Threats, action, drama, sacrifice, romance, character building... it's all there and in a bittersweet way reminds us in one issue of everything we've lost since the New 52 began. I'm not a hater of the New 52 - I just didn't see the point when all you needed was a good creative team - EVIDENCE here!
