August 4, 2015: Henry Cavill in "Men's Health" and "Men's Fitness" MagazinesPrint

Men's Health The September 2015 editions of both the "Men's Health" and "Men's Fitness" magazines feature Henry Cavill on the cover.

In the "Men's Health" magazine he talks about his new movie "The Man from UNCLE", getting physically ready for Superman, and what it takes to be mentally prepared for the role.

    Pre-Man of Steel, Cavill was gaining a rep as the unluckiest man in Hollywood. Bond aside, he also lost out to Robert Pattinson for Twilight (arguably that was good luck) and was initially cast for the reboot that became the disappointing Superman Returns, only to be booted out (again, arguably fortunately) along with a JJ Abrams script when director McG was replaced by Bryan Singer. Now Cavill seems to have the opposite problem.

    "Let's say the DC Universe keeps growing they haven't announced any more standalone Superman movies, but they may well do. That takes a full year out. If The Man from UNCLE becomes a franchise, there's that... I'm not too sure when I could fit [Bond] in." With two Justice League movies - DC's equivalent of Marvel's Avengers - slated to follow next year's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2017 and 2019, you can almost believe he's too busy for Bond. (Although, for the record, MH is nevertheless laying down Le Chiffre-level stakes on Cavill taking up the Martini-quaffing mantle when Craig eventually hangs up his tux.)

    In the meantime, being Superman remains a full-time job - even when he's busy fighting the Cold War. While The Man from UNCLE provided a welcome break from skin-tight spandex and shirtless scenes - Cavill slimmed down significantly for the role - it was by no means a rest period. "We knew Batman v Superman was happening immediately afterwards, so we were prepping for that at the same time, doing enough heavy stuff so that I'd be ready to make the switch without putting on muscle," he says. "Plus I had to stay at a certain weight and make sure I didn't blow up and get fat, which can easily happen when you're under stress and you want a drink at the weekend."

Men's Fitness Henry also talks about his commitment to the role of Superman...

    There's never any pure downtime from [his] physical regimen. Even during The Man from UNCLE - where "you can get away with a lot under a nice suit" - Cavill was already prepping for Batman v Superman. But he thinks he's now mastered the pendulum of mass gain, fat burn, and recovery. Give him a target date and a reasonable amount of time and he'll get himself where he has to be. "When I need to do it, I'll do it," he says. "But otherwise I'm going to enjoy my life."

    Whether he'll be allowed to is another matter. The two Justice League movies will extend his Superman commitment to six year - and if the franchise takes off as The Avengers did, maybe longer. His dedication to these characters would warm the heart of any comics geek. "They're the mythological heroes of our day," Cavill says, "and I want to help tell their stories for as long as I can." He seems almost territorial over the Man of Steel and his story. "But I have no power over the script," he admits, "and Chris Terrio [scriptwriter for the series] is a very good writer. There's so much that can be done with Superman. The Batman story is easy. He's dark and brooding and dangerous. Superman, I believe, can be a better story, but it requires 10 times the effort to get it right. All I can do is keep my fingers crossed that the big cheeses at the top care as much about the character as I do."

You can order "Men's Health" and "Men's Fitness" magazines online. Note: There are differences between the UK and US editions.

August 4, 2015: New Zealand Super Tyre Guy No Match for DC ComicsPrint

Super Tyre Guy A tyre/tire shop in New Zealand has been forced to change its logo to avoid legal action from DC Comics, who insists its mascot too closely resembles Superman.

    Owners of Super Tyre Guy, Marie and Gene Young, were surprised when, two weeks ago, they received a letter from Los Angeles-based DC Comics requesting they, "immediately and permanently stop using the Super Tyre Guy character".

    The issue arose after the couple decided to rebrand their business and incorporate a superhero into their branding. The blue and orange superhero holding a tyre has now been pulled up for similarities in outfit, colour and the five sided diamond pictured on his chest to that of Superman.

    According to Young, the couple had no intentions of copying the Superman design when creating their new look.

    "I have always loved superheroes and we didn't think of anything based off Superman itself but we just thought of a superhero image and that it was a strong and positive image to portray our business. That is how we do things in our local community," he said.

    The fighting continues. It's curious to imagine how the last few issues would play out in standard comic book form, with all this melee and no movement. The majority of Year Four has taken place on the steps of the Hall of Justice, comprising a fight that won't start, yet won't end. The battle that should be taking place is with the Insurgency, but they've been owned and reduced to less than side-line players, except for the obligatory self-righteous scene on the part of Batwoman. That Batwoman won't kill Wonder Woman, after the death of Huntress and Renee Montoya reduces Injustice to black and white formulae, as opposed to the supposed grey area and blurred lines the book purports itself to be. Super-powered heroes bad, crime fighting heroes good. What's more, Wonder Woman just pushed Regime Superman to the brink; Why is she having such a hard time with Batwoman, warrior extraordinaire that she is?

August 3, 2015: Jenna Dewan-Tatum Cast as Lucy Lane for "Supergirl"Print

Jenna Dewan-Tatum Jenna Dewan-Tatum has been cast in the role of Lucy Lane for the "Supergirl" TV series.

    In her mid-20s to early 30s, Lucy is described as as brash, funny and beautiful as her sister Lois, yet strong, smart and successful in her own right.

Lucy is expected to be introduced as an ex-girlfriend of James Olsen (played by Mehcad Brooks), whom Kara has a bit of a crush on. Whether this will introduce some kind of tension or love-triangle between the characters is unknown at this point in time.

Jenna Dewan-Tatum, who is the wife of actor Channing Tatum, most recently played the role of Freya Beauchamp in the "The Witches of East End" TV series.

"Supergirl" premieres Monday, October 26 at 8:30pm ET on CBS, before moving into its regular 8.00pm Monday time slot.

August 3, 2015: Stan Lee Picks a Winner in "Batman v Superman"Print

Batman v Superman The great Stan Lee has revealed who he thinks would win in a fight between Superman and Batman in a recent interview with the Boston Herald...

"Oh, Superman," answered the 92-year-old Lee. "He's indestructible, he can do anything. And Batman relies on a few weapons. If this is real, a fight between Superman and Batman, there's no way you'd bet on Batman."

Even with Ben Affleck playing the Dark Knight, Lee couldn't be persuaded from his answer. "Well, I like Ben Affleck," said Lee. "If they get Mortimer Snerd to play Superman, maybe Affleck would have a chance."

For those wondering, Mortimer Snerd is a ventriloquist dummy dating back to the late 1930s.

Stan gives his answer at 3 minutes and 50 seconds into the interview.
