August 29, 2014: Henry Cavill as Clark Kent on Set in MichiganPrint

Henry Cavill was photographed on set today in Michigan, dressed as Clark Kent for the upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" movie.

Additionally, a scene was filmed inside Hygrade Deli on Michigan Avenue on Thursday evening, with the Deli's name changed to Ralli's Diner.

    The Hygrade is an unpretentious restaurant known for its sandwiches, particularly its reuben. For the movie, it was transformed into an eatery called Ralli's Diner.

    Yes, Ralli's is the name of a diner that appears in 1987's "Superman" Vol. 2, #9, in the story "Metropolis 900 Mi," according to the DC Comics database hosted by Wikia.

    In the story, Lex Luthor meets a waitress named Jenny Hubbard at the faraway eatery and offers her $1 million if she’ll stay with him for one month. Think of it as "Indecent Proposal," Superman villain-style.

August 29, 2014: Jesse Eisenberg Talks About LexPrint

Dawn of Justice Jesse Eisenberg spoke with Total Film about his upcoming role in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" as Lex Luthor. Though he mentions he's never read comics or even seen a comic book film, he does praise Terrio's script and call Luthor "complicated."

    "There are some indications of how the character should behave based on the script, and then as actor makes it his or her own," he says. "I got to know one of the writers really well, Chris Terrio, and we were able to discuss things at length and figure out who this person is to create a real psychology behind what is, perhaps, in a comic book, a less than totally modern psychology. I can only say I've been asked to play an interesting role: a complicated, challenging person."

August 29, 2014: Latest "Batman v Superman" Movie RumorsPrint

There are all sorts of rumors doing the rounds at the moment regarding plot and character details for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", making it very hard to know what is true, what is rumor, and what is made-up nonsense.

For the sake of being complete, here are a few of the latest rumors that are gaining traction across the internet...

HitFix.com claims that they're hearing that Warner Bros. has set a mandate across its superhero movies stating that none of the films are to have any jokes in them. Supposedly the WB executive have stated that all the DC Comics movies are to retain a serious tone, with no gags or silliness throughout. The strange thing about this rumor is that HitFlix.com reports on it, but state in the same report that they have trouble believing it.

Another recent rumor (started by TheDevilsEye.com) states that Scoot McNairy is actually playing Jimmy Olsen, who had his legs crushed during the battle in Metropolis between Superman and General Zod in "Man of Steel", making him an amputee (hence the green screen leggings we sore McNairy wearing).

    "He now walks with the use of two prosthetic legs. He doesn't blame Superman for it [his loss of legs]. He feels grateful that Superman saved the world."

I guess we'll know whether this rumor pans out to be true or not once we see an official list of the roles being played by actors like Scoot McNairy, Tao Okamoto and Holly Hunter.

August 28, 2014: DC Comics Announces Jason Fabok as New "Justice League" ArtistPrint

Justice League #36 Artist Jason Fabok (who helped launch the "Batman Eternal" title), will be taking over as the new artist on "Justice League" with issue #36, replacing Ivan Reis and Joe Prado. Geoff Johns will remain as writer of the book.

Fabok told BuzzFeed.com, "Over the past 4 years, I've had the opportunity to launch Batman: Eternal with Scott Snyder and an amazing cast of writers, work on the legendary Detective Comics with John Layman and draw the character of my dreams, Batman. I'm so thankful and blessed for these opportunities in my career. How could it get any better?"

"How about getting a call from Geoff Johns at 12'oclock midnight and having him offer you the art duties on Justice League? I was so blown away I don't think I slept all week."

"Geoff has been such a huge inspiration to me over the years reading his work and watching him weave these grand epics through the DC universe. In fact, one of my career goals was to get a chance to work with him on a project. To have the opportunity to draw the next chapter in his Justice League saga is an extreme joy and overwhelming to consider."

"I've always dreamed of drawing Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Flash, Lex Luthor, Aquaman and the myriad of super-villains that comprise the Justice League books. Geoff has such an awesome story crafted and I can't wait for fans to see what he has in store in the coming months. It's going to get epic! I'm so thankful for this opportunity and hope that fans will look forward to what we have in store."

    Violence? Check. Ridiculous plot? Check. Cliffhanger? Check. Add more senseless violence? Double-check. All the while, Injustice doesn't miss a step in what it has set itself up to be: a dysfunctional take on classic superheroes, each more dysfunctional than the next, which no regard for the sensibilities of the characters, their powers, etc. Last issue the pardon was given for the moronic way that Cyborg was taken down, as it gave Commissioner Gordon a chance to end well. It's only fair that clemency is also given to Black Canary, who is looking to avenge herself on familial grounds as well. This scenario of Superman being vulnerable to very loud noises, i.e., "sonics" is part of the legacy of The Dark Knight Returns. It was incorrect then, and still is now. It shouldn't require much thought to sort it out either. Superman is able to travel a speeds approaching light, and possibly FTL. The sonic boom from traveling at Mach I is enough to rupture a human eardrum, and the sound at greater speeds would be deadly. However, he seems immune to these "sonics," but susceptible to others... while it's al the same, it's all acoustics. Sound that affects his eardrums would also affect other parts of his body as well, but only his ears seem to be vulnerable. It would be good to remember that Superman is also invulnerable, so even if the sound could affect him, the best you could hope for is him being annoyed. There's also the problem of him having total control of his hearing, and being able to tune out sounds whenever he chooses, and the fact that he do sonics of his own, but those things just get in the way of well-done violence.
