Also, it was great to see Krypto and a young Clark Kent testing out Clark's powers. And I didn't know Clark's middle name was Joseph. Very cool. Also, if you notice, young Clark looks a lot like Cooper Timberline who played the nine-year old Clark Kent in Man of Steel. He's even wearing the cape Timberline was wearing in the movie. I just love call backs to other Superman lore.

Special Guest, Dean Cain, best known for his breakthrough role as Superman/Clark Kent in the 1993 television hit series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman will be appearing on Saturday, June 14.
Dean attended Santa Monica High School where he excelled in sports. Cain graduated high school in 1984 and was offered athletic scholarships to 17 universities, but chose Princeton University. At Princeton, he was captain of the volleyball team and played free safety (Defensive Back) on the football team, where he had record-setting 12 interceptions in a single season. Immediately after graduating, Cain signed on as a free agent with the Buffalo Bills, an NFL football team, but a knee injury during training camp ended his football career before it began. With little hope of returning to sports, he turned to screenwriting and then acting, shooting dozens of commercials and appearing on popular television shows like Grapevine, A Different World and Beverly Hills, 90210. In 1993, Cain took on his biggest role to date as Superman in the television series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. At the height of its popularity it would bring in an average of at least 15 million viewers per episode. The series ran for four seasons, ending in 1997.
In 1998, Cain started the Angry Dragon Entertainment production company, which produced the TBS Superstation television series Ripley's Believe It or Not!. He has also starred in several films, including The Broken Hearts Club (2000), Out of Time (2003) and Bailey's Billions (2004). In 2004, he portrayed Scott Peterson in the fact-based made for television movie The Perfect Husband: The Laci Peterson Story. He has also appeared in a recurring role as Casey Manning in the television series Las Vegas. Cain guest-starred in a seventh season episode of Smallville as the immortal Dr. Curtis Knox.
Superman will be sharing the stage with an actor from the 1989 movie Batman. With the 75th anniversary of the character Batman first appearing in Detective Comics #27 and 25th anniversary of the Feature Film Batman directed by Tim Burton and starring Michael Keaton, Special guest, Billy Dee Williams, who played DA Harvey Dent in Batman (1989), will be joining Dean Cain on Saturday to meet the fans. Billy Dee has quite an impressive list of film and television appearances over the past 50+ years. He is best known to international film audiences as the roguish Lando Calrissian in the last two episodes of the original Star Wars-trilogy: Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983). Williams can also be seen on screen in Lady Sings the Blues (1972), Nighthawks (1981), Moving Target (1996) and Undercover Brother (2002). Besides his television & film roles, Billy Dee has voiced Lando Calrissian in the The Lego Movie (2014) , TV series Star Wars Rebels (2014) and voiced Lando Calrissian in the TV movie: Lego Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles - The Phantom Clone (2013).
Making her second trip to Metropolis will be Valerie Perrine. Valerie is best known as her role of Lex Luthor's girlfriend, Miss Teschmacher in Superman: The Movie (1978) and Superman II (1980). She has also appeared in numerous TV series and feature films including What Women Want (2000) and Lenny (1974).
Also appearing this year is Aaron Smolinski will who began his career with the role of Baby Clark Kent in Superman: The Movie (1978). He is also known for MVP: Most Valuable Primate (2000), Wishmaster 3: Beyond the Gates of Hell (2001) and appeared in Man of Steel (2013).
Perrine and Smolinski will be available to meet the fans on Friday and Saturday.
The Superman Celebration is a four day festival which welcomes as many as 40,000 people into Metropolis. Visitors will enjoy Musical Entertainment, Contests, Kids Activities, Vendors, Carnival and Artists and Writers from the Comic world.
More information can be found on SupermanCelebration.net, MetropolisChamber.com & MetropolisTourism.com or contact Metropolis Chamber of Commerce 618-524-2714. The Superman Celebration is hosted by the Metropolis Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by The City of Metropolis and The Metropolis Area Tourism Commission.
Likewise, with so much riding on the success of their film and the opening weekend being a chance to break records and establish a winning narrative surrounding the film, Warner isn't going to risk all of that by sticking to a schedule that puts Batman vs. Superman up against a major Marvel sequel. They also aren't out to try to damage a Marvel movie that could actually benefit WB's own film - whether Marvel moves up to April or Warner drops back to June/July, chances are Captain America 3 (if that's really the mystery Marvel movie, of course) will kick off the super-summer and prime the public for more.† That arrangement works both ways, too, since obviously the enormous buzz surrounding the release of a Batman-Superman-Wonder-Woman movie means audiences will be chomping at the bit and any superhero movie that comes out at the head of that feeding frenzy stands to gain enormous extra box office for itself.
Disney-Marvel aren't in the business of spending hundreds of billions of dollars to make films only to intentionally cripple the film's performance by using it as a simple tool to trip someone else.

This past Saturday, March 22, Woolstock, Iowa held a George Reeves Super Family Day to celebrate George's 100th birthday. He was born George Keefer Brewer in Woolstock, Iowa.
I caught up with one of the event organizers, Veronica Guyader to see how the day went...
Q: How did the George Reeves Super Family Day go?
Veronica: We had a nice day at the Heartland Museum. We showed 5 episodes of the ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN from Seasons 1 through 4. About 40 people came through, while others called in right as we were packing up. It was about half the numbers I expected but the group present were upbeat and enthusiastic. The four children under 10 years of age that were present all went home with double drawings... aka Superman Swag. The kids really were excited and enjoyed the whole event. One volunteer from Colorado (who helped set up and take down) won the grand drawing... going home with 9 items. Other adults also received Superman Swag with glee. We had, as one little girl put it, "birthday cookies" with the Superman logo and also pizza. About 30 people went through the museum... making a little over $100 for the museum... with additional donations of $210. Friends of the George Reeves Memorial donated $300 and George Reeves items for their Historical Society Library (which included fan-fiction comics THE ADVENTURES OF GEORGE REEVES, artwork, biographical info on multimedia, etc.)
Q: Did everything go well?
Veronica: I honestly did not know if I would have been able to attend this last event as there has been several months of illness in my family that has taken a serious turn this past week. Right now my family is my priority, another reason why it is a blessing to have co-hosts or organizers, allowing some flexibility for me to take care of what's important, whilst helping others in supporting their cause or institution via the presence and involvement of George Reeves' legacy.
Q: What is scheduled or going to be scheduled for the next event?
Veronica: We are working on confirming and finalizing the following three months' events within the next few weeks.
Q: Are you going to rest before that or are you going to work on it right away?
Veronica: And yes, I took a nice nap after the event was over. I await confirmation of the next three events from co-hosts... and am looking forward to each of them. They each bring different levels of work in getting them prepared... but I have spaced them out appropriately as not to become too overwhelmed.
Q: Were people looking forward to this event?
Veronica: Many of the people I have encountered in recent weeks leading up to this event shared their interest but also apologies for not being able to attend due to prior commitments. They and others from the last three events have expressed how important it is to create events like these, exploring the history of the area and of an era ... a generation of people remembering it all too well.
Q: Were you pleased with the way the day turned out?
Veronica: Others wished the event could have been several days or longer hours... .due to work schedules, etc. But all in all, I was pleased with the event. The people present had a good time and some had never been exposed to these episodes of THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN. Happy and smiling faces left the museum when the event was over. The owners of where George was born have attended all the events and when asked to share with others the stories they knew from when George was born.
Thank you Veronica and all the others who put this day together. It sounds like all of your hard work was appreciated and that everyone had an enjoyable time.
Thank you also for keeping the memory of George Reeves alive.

Superman parties aren't just for kids. With geek culture growing and a love of comics and heroes increasing, Superman parties for adults are becoming more and more popular. Below are some fun recipes and unique twists on party games to throw a "super" party.
Superman themed foods and presentations:
A Superman party can be taken "higher than the tallest building" when people come in and find an awesome spread of food presented in a cool way. Here are a few food ideas and presentations that are easy to do, look amazing and get your party off to the right start. Eat your heart out Lex because this spread is not for you!
Place the drying rack over the top of the box leaving space so you can drop dry ice and pour hot water into the pot below. Place the punch bowl on top of the drying rack and make your favorite champagne punch. Once guests arrive, drop in the green ice ring and then carefully and with dry ice safe gloves drop dry ice into the pot of hot water below. (Make sure not to get any in your champagne punch).
Now the fog will get trapped in the box and start rising over the sides through the holes in the drying rack giving you an amazing effect that spills out from under the punch and the fog carries along the table and down to the floor giving your room a super lair look.
Fortress of Solitude Cake
Now take this and place it on a piece of foam board that has about an inch around the edges of the cake. Take your rock candy sticks and punch the stick through the foam board and line it around the cake to look like the ice walls. Next add in the action figures for the cake and candles.
