Mild Mannered Reviews - "Batman v Superman" Prequel Comic - Chapter #2

Released Digitally: January 2016

"Lois Lane"

Writer: Christos Gage
Penciller: Joe Bennett
Inker: Sean Parsons
Cover: Sean Parsons, Joe Bennett and HiFi

Reviewed by: Stephen W. Wright

    I love how this book starts out with Clark and Lois in the Daily Planet doing what they do best. Lois is out to chase down a story and Clark is off to save people... with a smile on his face I might add. Throughout this story Lois is very "Loisy". She's smart, sassy, and, as I like to say, "on point". This is Lois. The woman every little boy falls in love with when reading a Superman comic for the first time. This is the Lois that is a role model to young girls throughout the world. You really see what I'm talking about when she confronts the shady businessman in his office. Lois goes in and you know right away she is thinking two steps ahead of the guy. He has no chance to win the argument and confrontation that is about to take place. Oh, he'll try, of course. But, we know he is S.O.L. This is a Lois that doesn't need Superman or Clark 95% of the time. When Mr. Bad CEO pulls a gun on Lois after she confronts him about selling Kryptonian Tech on the Dark Net (black market), she doesn't blink or show one ounce of worry. This is a General's daughter. This is a woman that has been around firearms, as she easily disarms him and renders the gun useless. This is a Lois that has seen some "stuff" (keeping it clean, family site and all... ;) ) and isn't going to be frightened by a little thing like a loaded weapon pointed at her head.

"One Nation Indivisible" - Chapter Two: "World-Leader Pretend"

Writer: Dan Abnett
Penciller: Jorge Jimenez
Inker: Jorge Jimenez
Cover: Jorge Jimenez

Reviewed by: James Lantz

    Dan Abnett has done it again. He's written a story that is well worth the book's cover price. If I'm going to pay three bucks for a comic, I expect the content to be worth what I paid for it. Sadly, there are some comics that just can't justify giving the shops twelve quarters for such poor quality on the comic pages. Fortunately, Earth 2: Society, after its rough start. Is finally coming around to being the great title it should be. If DC is smart, they will keep Abnett on the book for a long time. He's worked miracles on Earth 2.

February 12, 2016: Jesse Eisenberg Talks About Playing Lex LuthorPrint

Lex Luthor In a new interview with Playboy.com Jesse Eisenberg talks about playing Lex Luthor in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", his thoughts on the character, and what it was like working with Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck.

Here's what he had to say about the character and how he's portrayed in the upcoming movie...

    "The character is in line with what audiences want to see now, which is a more modern, psychologically realistic concept of Lex Luthor. His motivations are multifaceted; he has a way of using language that's specific to the way his mind works; he struggles with interesting philosophical dilemmas like that of the individual having too much power, even if that individual is using that power for good. For instance, Superman has so far been using his powers to do some good, but is it safe to have someone like that walking the streets? It's great that all of this happens in the context of a very exciting superhero movie.”

February 12, 2016: Appeals Court Confirms Superman Rights Stay With WBPrint

Superman Court Case The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has confirmed this week (once again) that the rights to Superman belong with Warner Bros., upholding an earlier decision stating that the family of Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel transferred right to the character in 2001.

    On Wednesday, the 9th Circuit said it really doesn't matter, that Congress authorized a "re-grant of copyrights by contract in lieu of statutory termination," that the Siegels "bargained with their statutory termination power in hand to negotiate a highly remunerative new agreement."

    The appeals court also won't let the Siegels try to rescind the 2001 agreement, noting the argument is now just coming up, the widow has died and there would be too much prejudice to DC to go down that road now. Separately, the 9th Circuit won't go into a decision much earlier in this case that the Superman works were made for hire, and thus, not eligible to be terminated in the first place. Warners, represented by Daniel Petrocelli at O'Melveny & Myers, attempted to revisit that one.

February 12, 2016: More From Tom Welling on "Supergirl" and "Batman v Superman"Print

Tom Welling In another interview with BirthMoviesDeath.com promoting his new film "The Choice", Tom Welling was asked once again about his thoughts on "Supergirl" and other current superhero TV shows...

    "You know, the success of Smallville is directly correlated to The Flash or Arrow - that genre that Warner Bros has been able to do. I do feel proud that it started with us, but it wasn't just because of us. I think technology and timing - we were suddenly able to do things in television that were, until then, only available in film because of how expensive they were. So we were lucky to be able to have that timing. A lot of the people who worked on Smallville, it's a lot of the same crew on Supernatural, The Flash, Arrow. Glen Winter is now the god that we all knew he was, and it all started with Smallville. He's a genius, and he's earned everything that he has. He's so creative, and such a great guy. Glen Winter is somebody who hasn't been singled out yet by anyone, but if you look at what he did on Smallville and then Flash and Arrow, he's the throughline."

As for his thoughts on "Supergirl"...

    "I do enjoy it. It's got a different angle, a more comedic angle, of course. It's telling the story in a different way, and I don't think it's a world that I ever existed in with Clark because they're two different shows. There's really nothing in common, there are no parallels at all. I say that being a fan of what they're doing. I think they're doing a great job."

And once again Welling expressed his excitement to see "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice"...

    "Superman is an interesting character because if you look at where he came from, and the time period that he was created, we're in very different times now. And I think trying to maintain that relevancy has been a challenge, because for a long time they've been trying to get that character to work on the big screen in a different way, a more modern way. I think they're doing it. I can't wait to see the movie, I've seen all the trailers. I'm totally into it, I am! I'm just like everybody else. I think it's cool, tough, it's got a lot of action, it's grounded, and I don't know yet what the storyline is, but I want to go see the movie so I can find out."
