September 19, 2014: Supergirl TV Series Gets Commitment from CBSPrint

Supergirl CBS has agreed to pick up the live-action Supergirl TV series pitched by DC Entertainment and "The Flash" TV series executive producer Greg Berlanti.

    The hourlong drama, taken out last week, centers on Kara Zor-El, Superman's cousin, who was born on the planet Krypton and escaped amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she has been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin. But now at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.

    Berlanti and Adler, who previously teamed on ABC's superhero drama No Ordinary Family, will pen the script and executive produce the drama via Berlanti Productions' Warner Bros. Television-based banner. Berlanti Productions' topper Sarah Schecter also executive produces.

September 19, 2014: "Batman v Superman" Filming Headed to Kent Farm House in NovemberPrint

Kent Farm House According to ReelChicago.com, production on "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" will head to Yorkville, Illinois to filming at the reconstructed Kent Farm House during November for a period of two weeks.

    After six months of filming in the Detroit area, "Batman vs. Superman" is tentatively scheduled to film in Illinois for one to two weeks. The Yorkville location is the farmhouse where Superman grew up and the producers need to film winter scenes there.

It would therefore be expected that Diane Lane would be on location to return to her role as Martha Kent during that time period.

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

September 19, 2014: Authors of "Holding Kryptonite" Join Radio KAL Live!Print

Holding Kryptonite The Superman Homepage hosts a LIVE "Radio KAL" broadcast every week for Superman fans to come chat "on air" about the Man of Steel.

In our next show (Monday, September 22) Steve and Michael will be joined by Lauren Agostino and A.L. Newberg, the authors of the new book "Holding Kryptonite".

    Look!
    Down on the Ground!
    It's a Bag. It's some Trash.
    It's...It's...What IS that?...

    In 1997, a young law firm assistant - Lauren Agostino - literally stumbled on a secret cache from Superman's creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. These original documents, private correspondence, legal papers, and artwork expose the muted and maligned history of the relationships and dynamics of the early Superman family.

    The origin of Superman and the downfall of its creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster is a dramatic saga that underscores one of America's most popular cultural icons. For the first time, Agostino and writer A.L. Newberg reveal the extraordinary true story of the Man of Steel's rise from a creative concept (sold for the infamous $130) to the 1947 lawsuit that nearly denied Siegel and Shuster of any future with their Man of Tomorrow.

    Stripped away the lies, myths and cover-ups this is a treasure trove for Superman fans and historians alike.

We'll be chatting with Lauren live on Monday night about this amazing find, the contents of her book, and the astounding historical events it uncovers.

You can read an excerpt and order the book via our Online Store.

Radio KAL Live! Be sure to listen to our live interview with the authors of "Holding Kryptonite" on Monday, September 22 at 7.30pm PDT in the U.S. (click here to check what time this is at your location).

To listen in visit www.SupermanHomepage.com/live at the designated time.

During the live broadcast you can phone (714) 242-6186 or click on the Skype icon (which will be available at the above link) during the show to be a caller and chat with us live "on air".

Mild Mannered Reviews - Injustice: Year Two - Chapter #24Print

Injustice: Year Two - Chapter #24

Mild Mannered Reviews - Injustice: Year Two - Chapter #24

Released Digitally: September 16, 2014

"World's End"

Writer: Tom Taylor
Penciller: Bruno Redondo, Xermanico
Inker: Julien Hugonnard-Bert
Cover: Jheremy Raapack with Santi Casas & David Lopez of Ikari Studio

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

    Year Two of Injustice lacked the presence and punch of its first offering, and much was retread ground, mimicking the events that worked well the first go around. The second year ends on a hopeful, but disappointing scene. Why does Fate decide to intervene for Black Canary, and not Regime? Canary is given the chance at happiness that has been denied Regime, and when simply thought about, having Lois Lane back would stop all of this malarkey tuit suite. However, that would stop the dysfunction that is Injustice, and the money that it's bringing with it. There really are no heroes in this series at all. Even the Marvel heroes, who fight each other for recreation, aren't this bad. The DC Universe isn't one that can sustain this type of asymmetry and imbalance for long, as its existence is predicated on heroes and heroism. Injustice may suit the need of some readers, and line the pockets of DC and the book's creators, but it's greatest disappointment is not taking the opportunity to remind readers why heroism is needed. The DC superheroes are the grandest and greatest of them all, "Gathered together from the cosmic reaches of the universe... are the most powerful forces of good ever assembled. Dedicated to Truth, Justice, and Peace, for all mankind!" Has the readership become that old and jaded, that long in the tooth that such things are no longer worthy? Injustice shows us a world with no heroes, a world of fear, hate, and stupidity, yet it fails to show why this is not a good thing. Instead it's just Boss moments and badass buffoonery. This is what some have asked for, and salivated for, a Superman who is badass and does what he wants. There's nothing weak about him and you can take Regime with you into any fanboy argument and come out a winner. There is also no reason to like Regime, and if the world has shown anything the last few months, it is that we are still very much in need of heroes, particularly in our fiction.

September 18, 2014: Batmobile Stows Away on Board the Millennium FalconPrint

Dawn of Justice JJ Abrams and Bad Robot have fired the latest salvo in the ongoing "Batman/Superman vs Star Wars" mash-ups which, until now, consisted of a number of photographs showing things like Superman as a Jedi and C3PO as Batman. With Zack Snyder having recently indicated that a Storm Trooper was responsible for taking the Batmobile for a joyride, JJ Abrams has created a video revealing the Millennium Falcon from "Star Wars: Episode VII", with a familiar stowaway attached to the "HUNKA JUNK".

September 18, 2014: From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman PodcastPrint

From Crisis to Crisis Welcome to the 172nd episode of From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman Podcast! This podcast has a simple premise; examine just about every Superman comic published between Man of Steel #1 in 1986 to Adventures of Superman #649 in 2006 in an informative and hopefully entertaining format.

Part index. Part commentary. Part history lesson. All podcast.

This time out Mike and Jeff finish up their look at the Elseworlds Annuals from 1994. The boys kick things off with SUPERBOY ANNUAL #1, which concludes the "Super Seven" story from ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN ANNUAL #6. Will the heroes defeat the alien invaders? Will everyone make it out alive? Well, yes and no, but you've have to listen to the episode to figure out the hows and whys of those answers. Then events go back to the Revolutionary War in the pages of ACTION COMICS ANNUAL #6 and we learn what would happen if one of Superman's ancestors came to Earth and was a huge jerk. Finally there's another period piece in STEEL ANNUAL #1 where John Henry was born before the American Civil War and there's armor (as you would imagine) and Arthurian references and a heaping, helping dose of racism.

Next time: Four words...SUPERMAN...DOOMSDAY...HUNTER...PREY!

You can subscribe to the show in two ways. First there is the RSS Feed and there is also the iTunes link. You can also download the episode directly.

If you want to comment on the show or contact the hosts you can always private message Mike and Jeff, leave comments here or email them at fromcrisistocrisis@gmail.com. All questions, concerns, fears, trepidations and cheap shots are welcome.


September 17, 2014: Justice League Animated Miniseries Set for 2015Print

Justice League MACHINIMA PARTNERS WITH WARNER BROS. AND DC ENTERTAINMENT FOR ORIGINAL SERIES JUSTICE LEAGUE: GODS AND MONSTERS CHRONICLES THREE-PART ANIMATED SHORTFORM SERIES FROM BRUCE TIMM AND ALAN BURNETT FEATURES BATMAN, WONDER WOMAN AND SUPERMAN IN AN ALTERNATE UNIVERSE

In the first programming collaboration since Warner Bros.' investment in Machinima earlier this year, the global many 2 many programming service for fanboys and videogamers announced today that it has greenlit the new animated shortform series JUSTICE LEAGUE: GODS AND MONSTERS CHRONICLES, from Bruce Timm and Alan Burnett (both producers of the legendary Batman: The Animated Series). The digital series is based on Justice League: Gods & Monsters, an original animated film executive produced by Timm and co-produced by Burnett that will be released by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment later in 2015. Chronicles will focus on alternate versions of DC Comics' iconic Justice League members Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman.

"Ever since we announced the Warner Bros. strategic investment, we have been looking for a new and exciting way to tap into the company's unmatched content. With JUSTICE LEAGUE: GODS AND MONSTERS CHRONICLES, Machinima will be the very first place fans can experience a new vision for DC Comics' beloved Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman characters. In addition, we have built a first-of-its-kind package for brands to engage with these characters to reach Machinima's elusive audience," stated Chad Gutstein, Machinma's CEO.

JUSTICE LEAGUE: GODS AND MONSTERS CHRONICLES marks the first project from Warner Bros.' newly formed digital content production unit, headed up by Sam Register, President, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series.

Sam Register said: "We couldn't be happier to be announcing our first new digital series today, and we're even more excited that it's a collaboration with such accomplished storytellers as Bruce Timm and Alan Burnett, who have been responsible for some of the most innovative and creative DC Universe projects. We can't wait for fans to have a chance to see the world they have created when JUSTICE LEAGUE: GODS AND MONSTERS CHRONICLES debuts on Machinima next year."

"We are committed to delivering DC Entertainment's extensive line-up of world-class characters and stories to audiences across all platforms and formats," stated DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson. "JUSTICE LEAGUE: GODS AND MONSTERS CHRONICLES is an exciting opportunity to bring alternate versions of DC Comics' iconic Justice League characters to Machinima, and we look forward to bringing this new animated shortform series to life with our partners across Warner Bros."

JUSTICE LEAGUE: GODS AND MONSTERS CHRONICLES explores a newly conceived reality in the DC Universe where Justice League members Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman are much darker versions of the Super Heroes that people think they know. The episodes are expected to debut on Machinima in spring 2015, weeks before the launch of the film. More details on each episode of JUSTICE LEAGUE: GODS AND MONSTERS CHRONICLES will be released in the upcoming months.
