July 13, 2014: Raunchy Superman Comedy "In a Single Bound"Print

In a Single Bound Kyle Walker, a Superman fan and playwright from West Michigan, has written a raunchy comedy and parody on the Superman theme titled "In a Single Bound", which will premiere this week at the Dog Story Theater in Grand Rapids.

    Board member of The University Wits Kyle Walker joined the WZZM13 Weekend Morning News to share more about the debut of "In a Single Bound."

    Walker was inspired to write the play, by how he related to Superman in his childhood. "I grew up very a shy and quiet kid," he says, "I related more with Clark Kent than Superman. But when I stopped and thought about it, I realized that Clark Kent and Superman are the same person. Things like that are what helped me out of my shell."

"In a single Bound" premieres on July 17 at 8:00pm at the Dog Story Theater, on Jefferson Avenue in downtown Grand Rapids. Purchase tickets from the Dog Story Theater website.

July 10, 2014: Will Doomsday Appear in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice"?Print

Doomsday It seems you can't go two days without a new rumor for the "Batman v Superman" movie, with today's rumor from BleedingCool.com claiming that Doomsday may appear in the upcoming film.

    Bleeding Cool sources who have been rather reliable in the past have told us that they have seen "Batman v Superman" designs for the character of Doomsday. In the comics, Doomsday was the creature who killed Superman, in an epic battle across all the Superman titles, culminating in a battle composed entirely of splash pages drawn by Dan Jurgens.

    Recently, the character returned in the rebooted New 52 Superman titles, in the crossover event Doomed masterminded by Scott Lobdell.

    Now, of course, much can change in the production process. This may be used purely for flashback purposes on the screen, looking at the life (and death) of Superman. It may be purely for promotional efforts to accompany the film. Or it may not make it to the final cut.

What do you think? Will Doomsday be in the new movie? Will we see the death of Superman in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice"?

July 9, 2014: DC Reverses Decision to Allow "S" Symbol on Murdered Boy's MemorialPrint

Jeffrey's Memorial Statue DC Entertainment has reversed their initial decision and will now allow a Toronto family to use the Superman "S" shield on a statue dedicated to the memory of five-year-old Jeffrey Baldwin who died in 2002.

    "I was angry. My first thought was to burn every DC comic book I ever had, but after talking with them, I sort of came around to see their perspective on it more," Boyce told CBC Metro Morning’s Matt Galloway on Tuesday. "They weren't comfortable associating the character of Superman with child abuse."

    On Wednesday, DC released a statement saying that after verifying the support of appropriate family members, it is allowing the statue to feature the "S" logo.

    "We are honoured by the relationship that our fans have with our characters, and fully understand the magnitude of their passion," the company said in its statement.

    "We take each request seriously and our heartfelt thoughts go out to the victims, the family and those affected. DC Entertainment uses a flexible set of criteria when we receive worthy requests such as this, and at times have reconsidered our initial stance."

Read the full report at CBC News.

While this is indeed great news for those rallying for the statue's use of the "S" symbol, legal expert and Superman fan Jeff Trexler comments on why DC Comics may have taken their original stance in this matter. It's worth a read. As is BleedingCool.com's report on why this is a reccuring problem for DC.

July 8, 2014: No Truth to the Three Rumored Villains for "Batman v Superman"Print

Fake Script Last week Latino-Review.com posted a report claiming that they'd received inside word from a source who told them that we'd see three secondary villains in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" - Morgan Edge, Victor Zsazs and David Cain. Well Latino-Review were fooled by a fake script (not written by Kevin Smith) that has been doing the rounds.

The script, which is claimed to be written by a person known only as Arrogant Alien on Twitter, was the source of the information, which Latino-Review.com has since removed from their website.

The reported writer of the fake script has admitted it was all a joke, but has received quite a few angry threats from those he fooled. So, as far as we know, you won't see Morgan Edge, Victor Zsazs, David Cain or Amanda Waller in "Batman v Superman".


July 8, 2014: Kevin Smith Did Not Write a Fake "Batman v Superman" ScriptPrint

Dawn of Justice A few days ago MovieWeb.com reported that they'd received an email from an inside source who claimed to know that Kevin Smith had been commissioned by Warner Bros. to write a fake "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" script to throw fan sites off the scent of the real story. Today, via his own blog, Kevin Smith reveals that there's no truth to the rumor...

    There've been a few movie websites reporting I might've been involved in a BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE misinformation campaign, at the behest of Warner Brothers, director Zack Snyder and producer Chuck Roven. The idea was that everything I've ever said about the forthcoming big screen team-up of the World's Finest is a carefully constructed web of intrigue to throw movie sites off the real track.

    C'mon, kids… No major studio would let a guy like me near their franchises - even if it was for a dummy script meant solely to fool the news sites. (Don't know if it's true or not, but this Twitter user is claiming credit for a fugazi script that's currently being reviewed online.)

    No, anything I've said about "Milo and Sage" was based on an image Zack showed me while hosting a MAN OF STEEL online event at Yahoo many months back. The little I know of the flick beyond that I learned from some cats involved (though never BatFleck himself; as I've said a few times now on the Babble-On podcast, beyond email, I haven't spoken to Ben in years).

In case you're wondering, "Milo and Sage" is the codename the movie was originally working under. Read the full blog post at SilentBobSpeaks.com.
