May 2, 2016: "Lois Lane: Double Down" Novel Available Now!Print

Lois Lane: Double Down DC Comics' iconic character Lois Lane is back for more in Lois Lane: Double Down, the second book in a new series from Switch Press, the Young Adult imprint of Capstone. Following the success of the first book in the series, Lois Lane: Fallout, author Gwenda Bond returns with a new story of the adventures of a teenage Lois Lane, as she begins to discover her passion for journalism and become the character loved by generations of fans.

    Lois Lane has settled in to her new school. She has friends, for maybe the first time in her life. She has a job that challenges her. And her friendship is growing with SmallvilleGuy, her online maybe-more-than-a-friend. But when her friend Maddy's twin collapses in a part of town she never should've been in, Lois finds herself embroiled in a dangerous mystery that brings her closer to the dirty underbelly of Metropolis.

"Lois Lane is an icon, one of the most well-known and enduring figures in American pop culture - and for good reason," says Bond. "She's a hero all of us can relate to. It's been a tremendous honor and a great pleasure to get to write about her in an all-new way, as a modern teenager, and I'm thrilled to be continuing her story in Double Down."

Lois Lane has been an integral part of the cultural landscape since her first appearance in Action Comics #1 in 1938, which also introduced the world to Superman. A Super Hero without superpowers, the character has been featured in a dizzying number of comic books, films, and television shows.

"Switch Press has been thrilled with the critical and fan response to Lois Lane: Fallout and we are all excited to see the series continue with Double Down," said Miles Stevens-Hoare, Managing Director of Capstone's Global Trade business. The Lois Lane series is produced through Capstone's licensing partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment.

Order "Doube Down (Lois Lane)" by Gwenda Bond now from the Superman Homepage Online Store.

Reviewed by: Adam Dechanel

    The more this story progresses the more I'm enjoying it, despite the inevitable outcome.

    Kara in her short scene seems a lot more human, more awkward, than before. Considering her angsty rage driven stories past, it's nice to see her being more than an angry teenager. Getting back to the story this meeting was a long time coming, Diana and Clark needed this moment for closure. Regardless of Clark's predicament, their break up was only based on 'I think' and it's nice to see it reach a much stronger climax. The kiss, so sad, was it a final kiss as the title suggested? I think so. There just seemed to be a finality to it. Many of us have endured break ups, maybe not with the impetus of impending death but we've all been there as the relationship ender or the broken hearted - almost poetic that Lois and Steve would interrupt the moment.

April 29, 2016: Brandon Routh Reflects on "Superman Returns" Ten Years OnPrint

Superman Returns Believe it or not, it's been 10 years since "Superman Returns" was released on the big screen in 2006. EmpireOnline.com caught up with Superman himself, Brandon Routh, to ask him about the movie 10 years on...

    "That will be a book someday, when I fully realize that whole experience," smiles Routh, currently starring as Ray Palmer/The Atom in the TV series DC's Legends Of Tomorrow, "but I think just the lack of knowing what was going on for so long was definitely a challenge, because I felt the need to uphold an image. No one asked me to uphold one, but that's how much I cared about the character. I felt certain things might be off-limits, certain roles. At least for the first couple of years when I thought we'd be coming back. As it got further away, that became less and less of an issue."

    Routh expresses that he really likes the movie. While acknowledging that Superman should have thrown a few more punches and that he would have preferred more practical flying effects than CG, those are not areas where he was able to have any influence. "Those are," he says, "small, personal things. But I think it was a very nice movie; it may not have been the Superman movie everyone wanted and I completely understand that - it's hard to please everybody - but I'm very proud of it still. And proud of Bryan and everyone who worked so hard to make it."

"Arrival" - Part 7

Cover: Lee Weeks and Brad Anderson

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

    The scene between Jon, Lois, and Clark is well-handled. What could have been a cringe-worthy exchange came across excellently for a couple of reasons: Jurgens knows how to write in the voice of a child. An extremely powerful child, but a young boy nonetheless. Jon displays the fluid emotions of a kid, moving from glee, to indignance, to curiosity, but through it all, he channels the balance of his father, which is displayed as well in the issue. When Superman takes apart Blackrock, he does so both literally and figuratively. Displaying a spark of indignance when learning that situation was created for a mere television show. He dispatches Blackrock, and his umbrage for more important things, just as Jon lets go his outrage for the important questions that he needs to pose and have answered. It's a very fine parallel, and that serves to connect Jon and Clark more so than the abilities that they each possess. Jurgens wisely interrupts the dialogue, as it's not a conversation that can be delivered to satisfaction in a few panels, and there is still plenty of story to happen in this and next issue.

April 28, 2016: Watch Wonder Woman's First Appearance from "Batman v Superman"Print

Wonder Woman A few days ago Japanese film site Eiga.com posted a 45 second clip from "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" in which Wonder Woman makes her first appearance in the movie.

Apparently this clip was officially released by Warner Bros. Japan. I waited a few days to post it in the hopes that we'd get a higher resolution version (higher than the above 480p version). I guess we'll just have to wait for the Blu-ray/DVD releases.


April 27, 2016: "Supergirl" Close to Second Season RenewalPrint

Supergirl In early March, CBS Network CEO Les Moonves told the Deutsche Bank Media, Internet & Telecom Conference that the TV network planned on renewing "Supergirl" for a second season, but no official announcement has been released since.

At the time Moonves was quoted as saying, "We have about five new shows on this year. Of those five, I believe all five of them will be renewed, and we own four of them."

"Supergirl" was obviously that one show not owned by the network, being a Warner Bros. property.

Today Variety reports that "Supergirl" is close to receiving that renewal announcement, but the show wasn't as popular as CBS was hoping.

    Freshman drama "Supergirl" wasn't the huge hit some hoped for, but count on it flying into another season - especially after that stellar example of corporate synergy with "The Flash" crossover, which resulted in increased viewership.

Look for an official announcement on "Supergirl" Season Two in the near future.
