October 2, 2015: "Superman: American Alien" is Not About Clark Kent Becoming a SuperheroPrint

Superman: American Alien Max Landis, the screenwriter best known for his film "Chronicle", who is a big Superman fan and has his own Superman comic book series "Superman: American Alien" coming out in November, spoke to Newsarama.com about the series, and how he would describe its premise...

    Newsarama: Max, what's the meaning behind the title American Alien, and how does it apply to the stories you're telling?

    Max Landis: The stories are thematically united by the idea of identity, but not so much "secret" identity... more "personality" identity, who we want to be versus who we are from moment to moment. The reason it's called American Alien is that the thing that's always interested me about Superman the least are his alien origins. I think they're important thematically, but ultimately what I like about him as a character is that he was someone who was "born" in the U.S.A. and has grown up wanting to be the best kind of person.

    Each of the stories is him challenging himself - while being challenged - about what kind of person he is. They're less about becoming a superhero and more about becoming not-an-a$$hole.

    Nrama: Wow, what a description. It's interesting that you said it's not about him becoming a superhero, because I've noticed that most of the descriptions reference him as Clark Kent. Are these stories more about Clark Kent than they are about Superman?

    Landis: I would say 150 percent yes. This is not a Superman comic. Superman is in it. Clark puts on the costume a couple of times, although I don't want to give away where and when, but it's more about the man behind it.

    Because honestly, Superman as a hero, most of the stories involving him have been told so brilliantly, that could be told - you know, he's lost his powers, he's died, he's turned evil a million times, he's stopped world-enders and con men and aliens and robots, he's fought inter-dimensional gods, And all that was exciting, but I've seen it. And I wanted to write a comic about what we haven't seen, which is just sort of his day-to-day and the stories he would tell you if you were his friend.

    Because Batman doesn't have one of those. Batman's secret identity is he's killing time until he can be Batman again. And Superman, as Clark Kent, they're the same person. Superman doesn't, to me, doesn't exist - it's just Clark in a costume choosing to try to help people. If there's an immediate call to Superman then he's Superman. You know? I don't think he ever willfully identified as Superman until he saw it on the news, and then he went, why not?

    So yes, it's much more based on.... my interpretation of this mythos is much more based around Clark Kent not just as a secret identity of Superman, but as a character.

October 2, 2015: Rare Superman Items Sold at AuctionPrint

Reeves Costume Profiles in History's 74th Hollywood auction saw close to 2000 iconic Hollywood items go under the hammer from September 29 to October 1 - including an "Adventures of Superman" costume worn by George Reeves, and a First Edition of "The Adventures of Superman" novel by George Lowther.

The George Reeves' Superman costume, which came with the "Flying Pan" used in the flying sequences, was expected to fetch around US$100,000-US$150,000, but actually sold for a lot higher, with the winning bid ending up at US$180,000.

Brandon Routh's Superman costume , which came complete with the boots and cape, which was expected to sell for around $15,000-$20,000, received no bids at all.

Other Superman items on auction included a First Edition of "The Adventures of Superman" novel by George Lowther, which sold for US$800.


October 1, 2015: George Miller Stamps Out "Man of Steel 2" RumorsPrint

Man of Steel Last month a rumor circulated which stated that George Miller ("Mad Max: Fury Road") was supposedly in line to direct a solo Superman film (a "Man of Steel 2" if you will). Not long after that we heard that any such movie was on "permanent hold". Then Zack Snyder claimed he'd had no knowledge of the George Miller rumor, but would definitely be open to the idea.

Now, we hear direct from George Miller, who confirms that he has indeed met with Warner Bros. about directing a DC movie, but the likelihood of it happening is slim.

    "I hope the next film I make is a very small film without any special effects and not many stunts," he said.

    Miller also spoke about his abandoned Justice League blockbuster, whether he's DC or Marvel and what he thinks about Man of Steel and Zack Snyder.

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

    The intensity of the story has picked up, but not the quality. The fact that Zeus can attack places of worship unchallenged is mind-boggling, and it would mean that none of the other deities give a rat's ass about their worshippers. The Greek pantheon being mythical, as opposed to the Abrahamic religions being believed is no excuse, the Hindu pantheon has been used in comics before, or even if we had to see Jesus Christ ride in and say: "I wasn't due back for another millennium or so, but, man, you asked for it." That the only challenge to this attack is either a nuclear strike or a New God, displays a rampant lack of imagination and just poor planning altogether with this story. In a fictional world where anything can happen, regardless of one's beliefs, that an omnipotent, omnipresent being would cop a DILLIGAF on such a situation, is just lazy... but that suits the parameters of Injustice perfectly. Don't think too much, if at all, and just watch the big explosions and pretty images. We couldn't even get Cu'Chulainn to come in and mix it up?

September 30, 2015: Gene Luen Yang Talks "Superman #44" and BeyondPrint

Superman #44 Newsarama.com has published an interview with "Superman" writer Gene Luen Yang to discuss the revelations brought about within the pages of both issue #43 and #44, especially in regards to Lois Lane, Hordr_Root, and upcoming characters Superman will interact with. Here's part of the interview...

    The solicitations for the next few issues don't give away much about what's coming up. Does it still tie into Hordr? Your part of "Justice?"

    Yang: Hordr will be a presence. Absolutely a presence. But there are a couple of things I want to explore.

    First is that Superman makes a threat at the end of this issue that is very un-Superman-like. He does this "eye for an eye" threat. I've heard it argued before that Superman is only good because he's strong. He can afford these ideals because nothing can truly threaten him, because he's the strongest being on Earth.

    We're going to explore the tie between his goodness and his strength.

    Second, I want to look at Superman as modern American mythology. So he's actually going to be coming into contact with some other mythological characters, other mythological figures. So we'll see modern American myth interacting with much more ancient myth in the next arc.
