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.

Cover: Neil Googe with Rex Lokus

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.

September 23, 2015: Noel Neill Devastated Over Jack Larson's PassingPrint

Jack Larson Larry Thomas Ward has written a wonderful article about the life of Jack Larson for the Metropolis Planet newspaper. While we best knew Jack as Jimmy Olsen on the "Adventures of Superman" TV series, Larry's article talks about the man behind the role, his unfinished memoirs, his love of his dogs, and his relationship with Noel Neill (who played Lois Lane for most of the TV series). Here's an excerpt from the article...

    It took decades, but Jack finally came to embrace his role as Jimmy Olsen. In the late 1990s he made a rare personal appearance at the Superman Celebration in Metropolis that clearly left an indelible impression on him. It was then that he finally understood what Superman meant to his fans and how he would forever be part of that legacy.

    I last saw Jack about a year ago at a private event in Hollywood celebrating the 100th birthday of actor George Reeves. "No matter what," he told me, "I'll always be Jimmy and I'm ok with that."

    When informed of Jack's passing, Noel Neill responded with sadness, saying she was devastated having lost her best and oldest friend.

You can read Larry's complete article at the Metropolis Planet website.

Jack Larson passed away on Sunday, September 20 at his home in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles, aged 87.

Reviewed by: Michael Bailey

    This issue was very well written.

    I hate the idea behind Truth.

    This is getting repetitive.

    Actually I liked this issue quite a bit. Lois Lane felt like...well, she felt like Lois Lane for one of the first times in the last four years. I still can't get behind her exposing Superman's identity, no matter the reason, but here she was surly and combative and it was awesome. Her interrogation at the beginning of the issue was my favorite part of the book. On top of that we got to see the rest of the supporting cast together and again it was for the first time in about four years. Outside of Perry acting like he needed some prune juice or something I liked the interaction between Superman and his friends. It did me a lot of good.
