June 20, 2016: Jesse Eisenberg Joins "Justice League" Filming in AugustPrint

Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor In an interview with ShortList.com Jesse Eisenberg talks about how much he enjoyed playing the role of Lex Luthor in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", and how he'd like to continue being Lex for many years to come.

When we last saw Lex Luthor, at the end of "Batman v Superman", his head was cleanly shaven and he was incarcerated in prison. But Lex will be back in the upcoming "Justice League" film...

"They are filming now, and I jump in from August," Eisenberg revealed ahead of the release of his new film "Now You See Me 2".

Eisenberg is eager to play the character once again...

"I loved the character and it was the most fun I've ever had at playing a role, and most challenging, in a great way, and most rewarding. I would love to play it for years."

"The character I play is so unusual and complicated. As an actor he's everything you'd want to do. It's very exciting for me to play that role. And, secondarily, it's interesting to be in these massive, high-profile movies, because all the stuff around you as an actor is really good. All the artists are really great, so you walk on to a set and it's the most-detailed, comprehensive set, and as an actor it really fills in your imagination in a special way.

"You're also acting with incredible actors. In the last movie I had lots of scenes with Holly Hunter, who has been one of my favourite actors since I was young. This all exists because this movie is so massive that they attract so many talented people, even in smaller positions. It was really special to me.

"The most exciting part was to play such an interesting character and I certainly hope he stays alive throughout the next few films."

"Justice League" is scheduled for release on November 17, 2017.

June 20, 2016: Riding the Six Flags Superman Virtual Reality CoasterPrint

Batman/Superman

Back in March Six Flags Entertainment Corporation announced a partnership with Samsung, taking its signature brand of thrills to the next level and beyond in fully immersive, virtual riding experiences using Samsung Gear VR. Some of Six Flags' most popular coasters are now equipped to allow riders wearing Samsung Gear VR headsets to feel the heart-pumping adrenaline of steep drops, inverted loops and powerful twists and turns as gyros, accelerometers and proximity sensors synchronize all of the action in an incredibly realistic 360-degree virtual reality world.

Below is a video by The Verge about the SUPERMAN Ride of Steel at Six Flags America in Upper Marlboro, Maryland:

On Six Flags' three new SUPERMAN Virtual Reality Coasters, once riders take their seats and fasten the headsets, they will be fully immersed in the 360-degree comic-book world of Metropolis. Guests will be taken on a leisurely (or so they think) tour of the city of Metropolis, courtesy of Lex Corp Sky Tours. Just after departing the station riders encounter Lex Luthor who uses an anti-gravity gun along with his army of Lex Bots to create chaos throughout the city with cars, taxis and buses floating in mid-air around the rider's vehicle. As the Lexbots continue shooting at the vehicle, SUPERMAN uses heat vison to destroy the anti-gravity gun, causing all objects to suddenly fall, including the train as it takes the first giant drop of the roller coaster. Riders then soar alongside SUPERMAN as he battles the evil Lexbots through hairpin twists and turns, loops, dips and dives before ultimately defeating Lex and the Lexbots, and returning safely back into the station. This amazing adventure will debut on these Superman-branded coasters:

  • SUPERMAN Krypton Coaster at Six Flags Fiesta Texas in San Antonio;

  • SUPERMAN The Ride at Six Flags New England in Agawam, Massachusetts; and

  • SUPERMAN Ride of Steel at Six Flags America in Upper Marlboro, Maryland.

    Secrets & lies... that is what we have here and it expands for a really good read and a great opening to the new direction of the Superman mythos in modern continuity.

    People often complain that Superman is too powerful and that he can 'end a fight in seconds', those people don't often read comics and were also those to argue the point with the recent Batman v Superman movie, so it is great to have a book that isn't focusing on punching things and instead one that is willing to explore the human dramas and maybe open their eyes a little that Superman is more than a fist fighter.

    There are interesting parallels to be drawn here not only with Action Comics but with Superman's past. In terms of Action, this is clearly the book exploring the character and his relationships, while that book runs full steam ahead into fisticuffs. Very little happens in terms of 'Super Feats' but the emotional dial is turned up to 10, and I'm really ok with that.

    June 19, 2016: Tyler Hoechlin on How He'll Approach Playing SupermanPrint

    Tyler Hoechlin Attending the Supanova Pop Culture Expo in Sydney, Australia this weekend, Tyler Hoechlin spoke with Australia's Daily Mail on Saturday during the Sydney Film Festival premiere of "Everybody Wants Some", telling them about how he plans to approach playing the role of Superman in Season 2 of "Supergirl".

    As for whether he'll be basing his version of the character on the performance of any previous actor to play the role, Hoechlin said, "I never try to compare and contrast performances because it's such an iconic character already. Superman is Superman so I'm just going to try to carry on the tradition of that and play that part."

    Interestingly, Tyler is more excited about playing Superman's alter-ego Clark Kent.

    "I think the fun is going to be finding where Clark Kent is in this world. I'm just excited to find out Clark's sense of humour."

    On Friday, Tyler announced to his fans on Twitter that he would be playing Superman, Tweeting: "Could not be more honored & humbled to be given the opportunity to play this incredible & beloved character. Can't wait to get to work!"

    The CW debut of "Supergirl" will see Tyler Hoechlin playing Superman, with the Man of Steel set to appear in the first two episodes of the new season.

    The Season 2 premiere of "Supergirl" will take place on Monday, October 10 at 8.00pm on The CW.
