The old Detroit Police building is the location of the shoot, where trailers and filming equipment have been gathering over the last few days.
The challenge took place Monday at Pontiac's Michigan Motion Picture Studios at the wrap of the day's filming, according to a spokeswoman for the movie.
In "LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham", the Caped Crusader joins forces with the super heroes of the DC Comics Universe and blasts off to outer space to stop the evil Brainiac from destroying Earth. Using the power of the Lantern Rings, Brainiac shrinks worlds to add to his twisted collection of miniature cities from across the universe. Now the greatest super heroes and the most cunning villains must unite and journey to different Lantern Worlds to collect the Lantern Rings and stop Brainiac before it's too late.

I was given much leeway to decide how I wanted the language to be developed and the person who gave me the most feedback was Kristen, the graphic designer, as we were the ones who ended up knowing the most about how the language worked since we were using it frequently. However, Alex McDowell, Production Designer, and Helen Jarvis, Art Director, were also extremely supportive of the work that Kristen and I were doing, which was nice since it led to more opportunities for the language to be used throughout the film's production.
What did you take from the experience? Did this project influence the way you think about your scholarly work, or your work with "real" languages?
Since my work on this project, I've been fascinated with the ideas of world building and the on-line worlds that people build and participate in. This has led me to re-look at my research with Na'vi speakers through the lens of digital ethnography. I've also had fans of Superman contact me requesting more information about how to learn the language I developed. As of now, Warner Bros., the official owners of this work, have not yet developed a learning guide for Kryptonian. Despite this, people are interested in learning the language, making me wonder, what can we do to make those interested in learning minority languages "fans" of their languages again? What can "fandoms" teach us about the enthusiasm required to help reverse language shift?
While the video is less than 3 minutes long, the creator of the animation tells me it took him about 18 months to put together.
Fallout (Lois Lane)
by Gwenda Bond (Author)
Lois Lane is starting a new life in Metropolis. An Army brat, Lois has lived all over - and seen all kinds of things. (Some of them defy explanation, like the near-disaster she witnessed in Kansas in the middle of one night.) But now her family is putting down roots in the big city, and Lois is determined to fit in. Stay quiet. Fly straight. As soon as she steps into her new high school, though, she can see it won't be that easy. A group known as the Warheads is making life miserable for another girl at school. They're messing with her mind, somehow, via the high-tech immersive videogame they all play. Not cool. Armed with her wit and her new snazzy job as a reporter, Lois has her sights set on solving this mystery. But sometimes it's all a bit much. Thank goodness for her maybe-more-than-a friend, a guy she knows only by his screenname, SmallvilleGuy...

"Chaos" - Part 12

I still have a beef with Superman's survival of Bleed Space last issue. We're again reminded in this issue that it wasn't easy, but it's still the sort of "gotcha" moment that just annoys me. It's what Dennis O'Neill would complain about. "Nope! Bleed can't kill me! I'm Superman. No nyaah!"
But that's in the past, now. And this issue is about the future, about what comes next.
Typically, the final chapter in a Smallville story arc leaves us with an ending of sorts. Sure, there are teases and hints of what's to come, but the closing chapter is still the closing chapter. Not so, here. This is very open-ended.
And that's a not a bad thing.
Here's what took place in tonight's show:
Our next show will be broadcast on Monday, September 1 at 7.30pm PDT in the U.S. (click here to check what time this is at your location).

Good issue. Taylor does these scenes well: pathos and sweet sentiment. They stand out because of the overall unevenness of Injustice, and when they are done, it reminds of the make-up of the characters that many times seems to be lost amidst the melee and slap-shock of the series. We will forgive that Commissioner Gordon comes anywhere close to taking out Cyborg, which should have never happened. We forgive the tired and trite method in which Cyborg is defeated, as he is all ways defeated in such a manner. Cyborg's greatest ability is also his greatest detriment as a character. He's all ways defeated by his cybernetics. If it's not a virus, he's just bloody pulled apart like a refrigerator door. Still, we pardon such laziness, because they allow us to have a last hurrah with Commissioner Gordon, who at his core, is a father who wants to see his daughter safe. Nothing will keep him from his task, not man, machine, on even his rapidly approaching death. A shot from Cyborg should be more than enough to stun a base-level metahuman, let alone one who is expiring with speed, but Gordon won't be denied by a little thing like that, not when Barbara's life is in the balance. The last conversation with the Batman is fitting. It is one of respect and fellowship, and the revelation that these two have served Gotham so well because they had each other as comrades. Gotham will not know how much it has lost.
