"Rogue Targets" - Part 2

Writer: Will Pfeifer
Penciller: Felipe Watanabe
Inker: Trevor Scott
Cover: Bengal
Variant Cover: Ben Caldwell

Reviewed by: Keith Samra

    As excited as I was last issue about this series, and the direction it was heading, this issue kind of left me in thinking "shouldn't there be more to this?"...

    There wasn't much "meat" to this story, which became even clearer as I wrote the synopsis for this issue. Now I'm not going to get into a tirade of how modern comics are really deconstructed or "paced" as industry professionals like to call it. But I was left wanting more, and not in a good way.

    Basically this issue was about the Elite trying to take in Superboy, while Robin and Raven ambush Manchester Black. Like I said, not much meat to this tale.

July 29, 2015: More New Stills from "Batman v Superman"Print

With the September 2015 issue of Empire magazine not only featuring "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" on the cover, but also containing new content within, additional images from the magazine have been posted online...

The photos show us Superman confronting Batman, Perry White talking with Lois and Clark, Bruce Wayne with Alfred Pennyworth, Batman looking at the Bat suit, Zack Snyder directing various scenes, and Diana Prince.

ComicBookMovie.com transcribed some of the interview with Zack Snyder from the Empire magazine feature, giving us a little more insight into how the film will set up future DCU movies...

    "What we are doing is ground up all the way. It is one giant story," director Zack Snyder explains. "The first thing we had was the Justice League concept. The other movies, in a way, have to support that. That is our Wonder Woman, our Aquaman. They have their own creative concepts that supports them, but they do serve Justice League in the coming together of those heroes."

    "I want all the other directors of the other films to be able to stretch their legs and do what they want, but at the same time there is a big interconnected universe. I have given everyone amazing access to our story, to me, and what we are doing. All the films have like minded conceptual jumping on points."

July 29, 2015: Henry Cavill Talks About Returning to Play SupermanPrint

Superman With his new film "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." about to hit theaters, Henry Cavill has been involved in a number of interviews to promote the movie, with Inquirer.net taking the opportunity to also ask him about returning to play Superman for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice"...

    "With 'Batman v Superman,' it's great to be playing the character again," said Henry, who first played Superman in 2013's "Man of Steel," in his soothing, smooth voice. "I really like playing Superman - it's a lot of fun and very different, which is why it's so refreshing to play someone like Napoleon who is far more human.

      "One thing which Guy [Ritchie, the director of "The Man from U.N.C.L.E."] said during the shooting was, 'Wow, Henry, I think people are going to actually like you in this movie.' There's something about Superman - he is so perfect, nice and earnest that people don't necessarily like that. They want to see some flaws, some personal failures, some mischievousness which is a bit more like them.

    "But regardless of that, playing an icon like Superman is fantastic. It's one of those things which is filled with such possibilities. Now that I'm playing Superman, people all of a sudden listen to me. Suddenly, I have indie scripts coming to the door because they want to have their movies financed by having Superman in them. It definitely has changed my life. It's wonderful to still be part of that franchise."

    Asked if his second incarnation of Superman will come with flaws, Henry broke into a Clark Kent-ish smile and said, "I can tell you nothing."

July 29, 2015: Is Callan Mulvey Playing KGBeast in "Batman v Superman"Print

Callan Mulvey Back in April 2014, Warner Bros. Pictures announced that Callan Mulvey of "300: Rise of an Empire" had joined the cast of "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" in an undiclosed role. Director Zack Snyder stated at the time, "I just had the good fortune to work with Callan on '300: Rise of an Empire' and was very impressed with his incredible talent," the director continued. "He's a fantastic actor and I'm looking forward to having the chance to work with him again."

Today, HeroicHollywood.com claims that Mulvey will actually be playing the role of KGBeast, aka Lex Luthor's Russian right hand man Anatoli Knyazev.

Rather than getting the comic book version fans might be familiar with, it's rumored that Knyazev is the guy that keeps tabs on meta-humans in the movie.
