July 13, 2015: "Supergirl" Comic-Con Panel and Interview VideosPrint

Supergirl At San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday night the cast and crew of "Supergirl" took to the stage to discuss the upcoming superhero CBS TV series. Here's video of that panel:

Additionally, the cast participated in a number of interviews while at Comic-Con...

"Obviously, that's a daunting feeling to arrive at a point where this is a character that is so developed and so many people already love. So there's a responsibility, and I arrived wanting to stay true to all of that. What I wanted to bring is I love her humanity. She is an alien, [but] I love that she really has a lot of discovering to do, and growth, and makes mistakes. I think she's so relatable, and I just want to stay true to that."

"Supergirl" premieres Monday, October 26 at 8:30pm ET on CBS.

    If you do not like religious overtones grafted onto your fiction, I have some bad news. This issue cranks the spiritual themes and imagery up to eleven. Kryptonian sun god, Rao, is used as a not-so-secret-cypher to deal with questions of our faith and religion.

    The idea of treating superheroes as gods, is well-trodden ground. Although here, it feels fresh. Like the previous issue, the writer-artist does not delve too deeply into his characters, but he shows he has an accurate feel for them. Hitch uses the idea of a deity to examine each character's willingness to believe in something higher than themselves.

    Superman is the true believer. He is a symbol of hope. It is in his very nature to believe.

    Batman is the fallen believer. He was young -and innocent- when his parents were killed. The tragedy transforms him from a believer-by-default, into a traumatized individual. As a result, he adheres to the power of fear, the opposite of faith. He recreates himself into a symbol of terror. His bitter-fueled reliance on fear prevents healing, and in turn, prevents his believing in anything outside himself.

    The overall story itself isn't bad. However, it does suffer from the same problems as the previous issue. It's not very reader friendly, and it jumps all over the place. Changes in scene and time period don't bother me that much. Yet, it becomes a jarring disruption in this series. Scenes with Batman have a different flow from the crash scenes. This makes the book feel like two different writers are working on the project, and they can't agree on what to do with it. Earth 2: Society has potential to be a great series, and I intend to stick with it. However, if it continues to go in its present direction, I get the feeling it won't last longer than DC's next crossover event.

July 12, 2015: Breaking Down the "Batman v Superman" Comic-Con TrailerPrint

Having now had time to take in all two and a half minutes of the new "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" trailer over the last couple of days, today I took time to grab nearly 100 stills from the trailer, and break down what we saw - scene by scene.

The trailer starts with the voice of Holly Hunter's character, who we now know is a Senator, as she addresses the assembled members of the United States Senate.

"Today, is a day for Truth", she says.

Outside, Superman lands, as protestors with plackards reading, "Superman = Illegal Alien", "This is OUR World, Not Yours!", "Aliens Doom Nations", "Earth Belongs to Humans", "Tell Us the Truth About Aliens", "When Invasion Becomes Reality, Revolt Becomes Duty", "Aliens are Un-American", "God Hates Aliens"... There are a few positive signs too, like "Superman Saves Lives" and "Share the Planet".

Comic-Con Trailer

"The World needs to know what happened. And to know what he stands for," continues the Senator, as Superman enters the assembly. "That kind of power is very dangerous."


As the scene changes, we flashback to the fight between Superman and General Zod from "Man of Steel". We see Bruce Wayne sprinting down a Metropolis street as cars burn around him. With his phone to his ear he looks on as Zod's heat-vision cuts through the upper floors of a building. Bruce screams into his phone.


As a building topples, Bruce continues to run towards the billowing ash cloud. As he hugs a young girl amongst the destruction of the Wayne Enterprises Metropolis building, he looks up, with anger on his face.


The senator's voice continues, "Let the record show that this committee holds him responsible."

We then flash to what appears to be Alfred Pennyworth walking through a field of dead grass towards the remains of a stately building (possibly Wayne Manor).

In a Wayne Enterprisis building (likely in Gotham), Bruce Wayne looks down at a newspaper report on the destruction of the Wayne Tower in Metropolis in which "dozens" were killed. Someone has scrawled the words "You Let Your Family DIE" in red over the story. He clearly isn't impressed.


As we watch Bruce in training, pulling a large truck tire towards himself, and then staring at the Batman costume, Alfred states, "That's how it starts... The fever. The rage. That turns good mean cruel."


As police find a man chained to a wall, branded with the symbol of a bat on his chest, and a Batarang protruding out of the wall, a voice states, "This Bat vigalante is like a one-man reign of terror."

A swarm of Bats fly out of a tunnel as someone screams in the background.


We next switch to the offices of the Daily Planet, where Perry White is sternly telling Clark Kent, "You don't get to decide what the 'right thing' is. Nobody cares about Clark Kent taking on the Batman."

"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" opens nationwide in 3D and 2D and in select IMAX theaters on March 25, 2016, and will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
