December 15, 2014: Amy Adams Talks About Lois Lane's Role in "Batman v Superman"Print

Lois Lane In another interview to promote her new film "Big Eyes", Amy Adams told Collider.com that Lois Lane is still very much a part of the story in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", acquiring information and putting the pieces together.

"Lois is still sort of like the key to the information, you know? She's the girl going out and getting it and figuring it out and putting it together and all of that, so she's very much involved, but I kind of leave the heavy lifting to the boys, you know? So to speak."

December 15, 2014: Tomasi on the Identity of Wonderstar in "Superman/Wonder Woman"Print

Superman/Wonder Woman #14 New "Superman/Wonder Woman" writer Peter Tomasi intrigued readers immediately with the introduction of a new super-powered character at the end of issue #13 - Wonderstar. Fans across the internet have been speculating as to Wonderstar's real identity and origins, with talk of Magog and other Kingdom Come connections possibly in the pipeline.

Newsarama.com has posted an interview with Tomasi to find out where things are headed with Superman and Wonder Woman, and what we can expect from Wonderstar. Here's an excerpt from the interview...

    Q: Pete, on Superman/Wonder Woman, the big question is, who is Wonderstar?

    Peter Tomasi: Right. And there's not a lot to say, still, at this moment, because we won't know until the end of #14.

    Q: Ah, so we find out that soon?

    Tomasi: Yeah, the way I'm writing is just, really jam?packing it with stuff. I don't want to go for a decompression. We're just throwing a lot of stuff in each issue, and not pulling things along too long.

    So you'll find out who Wonderstar is and the ramifications of that for Superman and Wonder Woman, and how it all plays out.

    Issue #14 has a ton of action. Doug Mahnke has drawn an amazing issue, which I'm actually flipping through right now - just great, cool character interaction with Wonderstar, and how the relationship of Superman and Wonder Woman will change very quickly.

December 15, 2014: Greg Pak Brings Horror to "Action Comics"Print

Action Comics #38 In an interview with ComicBookResources.com, "Action Comics" writer Greg Pak talks about the current "Horrorville" story taking place, in which Superman (along with Lana Lang and Steel) are trapped within Clark Kent's hometown, under strange and disturbing circumstances. Here's part of the interview...

    This arc certainly occupies a slightly different wheelhouse than your previous arcs, really putting the emphasis on horror aspects of the DCU.

    We're always trying to come up with new ways to tell Superman stories and new opponents we can give Superman. Just in thinking over things - I'm not sure where this came about, but I stumbled into it and realized I hadn't seen this kind of story told with Superman. I'm sure everything's been done in the 75 years of the character's history, but this particular thing I hadn't seen any time recently, and it seemed like it would be a fun thing to do.

    Also, it's always good to give Superman opponents that he can't just punch out, and this was a good way to challenge him. Horror, I think, works because we care about the characters. It's all about emotion, really. Horror movies often have some kind of subtext of guilt or tragedy, and in the wake of "Doomed" in particular, it felt like a good way to give us a way to explore some of that subtly - to explore some of the emotional and relationship stuff that's going on in Superman's world. The genre just lends itself to that in a really great way.

December 15, 2014: Amy Adams Says No Lois Lane vs Wonder Woman in "Batman v Superman"Print

Lois Lane In a video interview with ComingSoon.net to promote her new film "Big Eyes", Amy Adams spoke briefly about "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", and shot down any suggestions that there's any animosity or competition between Lois Lane and Wonder Woman in the upcoming movie.

    "It's exciting to get to bring in all these other characters and I was really excited that Gal (Gadot) was involved, because it was a nice to have another girl on set, even if we don't work together a lot, it was nice to have her there,"†she told us.

    When we suggested that Wonder Woman may offer some competition for Superman's affections (as she has recently in the comics), Adams dismissed that notion:†"They always think that if you put in another woman and automatically... 'Catfight!' No, I think that's a male fantasy thing. I don't think that's reality."

    Then she added, "I don't know how it will turn out, if we're going to be competition, but we are not in this, I can safely say, and we're not in real life. She's just the coolest girl ever."

December 14, 2014: Celebrate a Magical New Year's Eve in Metropolis, IllinoisPrint

Morgan Strebler Superman fan and Magician/Illusionist Morgan Strebler will be performing his action-packed live show on New Year's Eve in Metropolis, Illinois.

    Strebler - a native of Sikeston, Missouri and a special guest during the 2014 Superman Celebration - will perform two special shows in Metropolis on New Year's Eve as a fundraiser for the not-for-profit organization Save The Massac.

    He will perform at Baymont Theater, 203 E. Front St., on Wednesday, Dec. 31 at 3 p.m. and at 7 p.m. Tickets to are $20, and Strebler will donate 100 percent of the ticket sales to Save The Massac.

    As if two shows were not enough, Strebler, like other magicians, has another trick up his sleeve. Near the midnight hour at the Superman statue, he will be hoisted by a crane into the air and suspended in a straight jacket.

    Strebler calls himself a "Superman geek," noting even before he was a special guest at the Celebration, he attended the event several times throughout the years. Strebler said he wanted to do something to give back to the community.

    "I'm really excited about this show because I've been all over the world, but this is my favorite city in the world. I'm a huge Superman fan, and I'll do anything to help this community out. It's such an honor to perform here," he said.

Visit www.savethemassac.com to order tickets online, or purchase them in person from Creations the Florist, located at 600 Ferry Street in Metropolis.
