November 4, 2015: Emma Caulfield Cast as Cameron Chase for "Supergirl"Print

Emma Caulfield Best known for her role in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", actress Emma Caulfield has been cast in the role of Cameron Chase for an upcoming episode of "Supergirl".

    After her father's violent murder, Cameron Chase decided to dedicate her life to law enforcement. Now a stern, no holds barred FBI agent, Chase's weapons of choice are manipulation and manpower. With little sympathy, and plenty of suspicions, she pursues her targets with ruthless determination.

Comic book fans may be interested to note that Cameron Chase first appeared in Batman #550 before moving in to her own title. Her comic book counterpart was a DEO agent driven to fight "extranormal" threats after her father was murdered.

November 4, 2015: Grant Morrison's Thoughts on Current Superman StoriesPrint

Action Comics #1 In an interview with Forbes.com, Grant Morrison discusses his thoughts on Superman's origins as a character, the recent trend in Superman stories, and his thoughts on the cinematic DC Universe. Here's an excerpt from the interview...

    What's your opinion of the new cinematic DCU? In particular, we see the approach with the previous film - and now more so with the new film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - addressing the social issues surrounding the arrival of Superman, including reflecting real-life xenophobia and anti-immigrant sentiments in the U.S. these days. And then there's the idea of America as a beacon of hope that can use its power for good, but also this fear so many people have of the danger from potential abuse of that vast power.

    I think you're finding the Superman that's developing now is interesting again, because he seems to be quite against society in a lot of ways.

    For a long time, Superman was seen as quite boring because he was a "Boy Scout" and he stood for kind of American rightwing values rather than the leftwing values he'd been created with. And for a long time, he was seen as sort of a policeman figure, or a father figure, this patriarchal idea.

    Now what we're seeing is a Superman who slightly embodies the alien a little bit more, who stands for counter-culture or what remains of the opposition - because there's not a lot of opposition in the world that we now live in, to the monoculture; now everyone's under surveillance, everything's under control, they know what we're doing and they're watching our emails. So strangely enough, Superman has oddly mutated again into this kind of progressive figure who's fighting our battles on behalf of us with his incredible strength.

November 4, 2015: Francis Manapul Unveils 'Different' Superman in "Darkseid War"Print

Darkseid War - Superman In this week's "Justice League: Darkseid War - Superman" comic book, writer/artist Francil Manapul delivers a story about an apathetic Superman who wants pie...

    This is a little different version of Superman. I was trying to come up with descriptors for this Superman - dismissive, egotistical, disinterested - but how would you describe him? It's not a dark Superman, because he's still fighting against the bad guys. What descriptor do you use for this Superman?

    Manapul: I think the story revolves around apathy.

    That's the word!

    Manapul: That's more or less where we find Superman when we get to this story. There's this longing for something worthy, something that will make him feel accomplished as the most powerful being in the universe. That's where the conflictarises when he arrives on Earth as our issue opens. He fights an alien, and he doesn't even want to finish the job. Of course, it comes back to bite him.

    The inaction of Superman, and his apathy, is what makes him different in this issue, from who we know Superman to be - a guy that will always do the right thing. In this issue, when the alien isn't enough of a challenge, Superman is more interested in eating apple pie.

    Yeah, you mentioned the pie last week when we talked. There's something about just sitting and eating pie that sounds apathetic.

    Manapul: Yeah. And not to get too meta, but there's a lot that the pie represents. To me, Superman is as American as apple pie. And here he is completely different - emotionally different, physically different - and there's something from his past that was a real touchstone to him as a character, and it was this pie.

    Of course, Jimmy has to play the hero and point out that Superman isn't really wanting pie. It's what it symbolizes.

    I know from talking to you in the past that you really try to think through what you can relate to about what's going on with the characters you write. Was there anything you could relate to with this apathetic Superman?

    Manapul: Yeah, definitely. With Superman, a lot of people says they have a tough time relating to him because he's so powerful.

    It's also one of the things I had to think about with Lex Luthor [for the upcoming Justice League: Darkseid War - Superman issue]. He doesn't understand Superman at all.

    So one of the things I had to hone in on for this issue with Superman was, what would you feel as this omnipotent being that will probably live forever? And one of the things I realized was, gods probably get lonely too. I think that's where this story really opened up for me. Here is Superman, the most powerful being around, and yet he can be lonely. His desire to go back to Earth and get pie was never about the pie.

November 4, 2015: Siegel Case for Superman Rights Argued on Appeal... AgainPrint

Superman Court Case It appears to be a never-ending battle over the rights to Superman, with attorney Marc Toberoff appearing on behalf of Laura Siegel Larson (Jerry Siegel's daughter) in front of a panel of judges yesterday appealing the court's decision to grant ownership of the character to Warner Bros.

    The session opened with Judge Schroeder adding a sharp "Again" to Judge Pregerson's observation that Laura Siegel Larson v. Warner Bros. Entertainment "is the case that involves Superman," and her offhand comment was telling - all three members of the panel gave the impression that they felt the question of whether the appellate court's prior ruling that 2001 agreement was a settlement had indeed resolved the issues that Siegel attorney Marc Toberoff is trying to revive.

    The questioning began with a rigorous inquiry from Judge Michelle Friedland, a former corporate attorney who seemed to have little sympathy for Toberoff's attempt to show that when the 2001 settlement agreement didn't actually transfer any rights. There was a little more breathing space given to the issue of whether Warner Bros. was prejudiced (i.e., harmed) by Toberoff's failure to raise a certain claim until after the earlier decision by the appellate court, but without going into detail here, it's a technical matter where there's a well-established line of argument vis a vis judicial efficiency and fairness that would support a decision to preserve the status quo.

    Warner Bros. attorney Daniel Petrocelli was himself grilled on a couple technical issues, but in each case he succeeded in relating his arguments back to the core doctrinal and policy points set forth by the judges - at one point, after Petrocelli recited settlement language showing that the contract did indeed track established precedent in regard to heirs using termination as a leverage to secure a favorable deal, there was a silence in the courtroom that in any other context would have ended with a mic drop.

November 3, 2015: New Plot Description for "Batman v Superman"Print

Batman v Superman To date, the only official plot description we've been given for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" reads:

    Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City's own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis's most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it's ever known before.

Now, ODEON (the largest and best-known cinema chain in the UK) has posted the following description for the movie on their website:

    At long last, see Batman and Superman square off against each other in 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice', an epic superhero showdown which will change both their lives forever.

    Clark Kent doesn't trust Gotham's mysterious masked vigilante. Bruce Wayne doesn't trust the alien who nearly destroyed Metropolis. And Lex Luthor, who hates Superman more than anyone, is manipulating both of them for his own twisted ends.

    Choose your side: the Man of Steel or the Dark Knight? Learn the answer to the age-old question - who would win? - in 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'.

It's unknown if this is an officially worded snyopsis (probably not), but it is interesting how ODEON describes Lex Luthor's role.

"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" will be released in theaters on March 25, 2016.

November 3, 2015: "Supergirl" Ratings Drop by Nearly 30%Print

Supergirl After soaring into the #1 spot with its pilot episode last week, "Supergirl" took a bit of a hit in the ratings for its second episode, with close to a 30% drop in viewers.

EW.com reports that without a "Big Bang Theory" episode lead-in, "Supergirl" was watched by 8.9 million viewers and had a 2.2 rating among adults 18–49. A drop of 29% in the adult demographic.

    Supergirl was also beaten in the hour by NBC's The Voice (3.2), yet easily dominated Fox's own superhero show Gotham (1.6), along with ABC's Dancing With the Stars (1.9). CBS points out Supergirl managed to tie NBC's 10 p.m. freshman drama Blindspot (2.2) at the night's biggest scripted show (only without Blindspot's big Voice lead in). CBS projects Supergirl will grow by about 65 percent with DVR over the coming week.

While the drop in ratings was expected, it will be interesting to see how much DVR viewings help the final score once the Live+3 ratings are released later this week.
