October 22, 2014: Ray Fisher Talks Cyborg and "Batman v Superman"Print

Ray Fisher In an interview with Entertainment Weekly actor Ray Fisher, who has been cast to play Cyborg in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", says he had no idea that Warner Bros. were planning a solo Cyborg movie as well...

    "I didn't know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character," says Fisher, who was hired in March to cameo as Cyborg in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. "When I signed on, I just wanted to be part of this world. But that specific information, I found out then and there. I didn't think I'd be getting my own stand-alone film."

    "I'm a long-game player and didn't see any of this happening until at least my 40s," Fisher says. "It's a huge honor, but a bit of pressure comes along with it. My mind is just boggled right now."

    In July, the actor wrapped shooting his part for Batman v Superman, scheduled for release in March 25, 2016. He remains tight-lipped about plot-points and potential spoilers but confirmed meeting certain super-friends on set: Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Jason Momoa (Aquaman) and Ben Affleck (Batman). Fisher also bonded with fellow New Jersey-ite Jesse Eisenberg, who portrays super villain Lex Luthor in the movie.

    "I met everyone in the Justice League except Henry Cavill and Ezra Miller," Fisher says of the actors who respectively portray Superman and the Flash within the DC Cinematic Universe. "It was surreal. You get this idea of going to work on a Hollywood set as being really stressful and nerve-wracking. But it blew that stereotype away. If they did have stressful times, it wasn't while I was there."

So what were Fisher's final thoughts on what fans can expect from "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice"?

    "Let me tell you, man," Fisher says with a laugh, "people are in for a hell of a treat."

October 21, 2014: Team-Up Variant Covers for "Superman" Comic BooksPrint

Superman #36 Variant Cover Superman #35 Variant Cover While the January 2014 solicitations from DC Comics revealed that a DC-wide "Flash 75th Anniversary" theme would be the focus of the variant covers for that month, the "Superman" comic book title will be getting its range of "Team-Up" variant covers over the next few months.

    Geoff Johns and John Romita, Jr.'s Superman series will begin featuring a new variant cover theme starting with this week's Superman #35 and lasting through March's Superman #40. Each of these variant covers will spotlight an iconic team-up between Superman and another DC hero that Johns has written over the course of his DC career.

    In addition to these covers, DC has revealed that Superman #37 will feature a Superman/Green Lantern team-up by Ethan Van Sciver, while Superman #38 will see Lee Moder pair Superman and Stargirl (the star of Johns' very first DC project).

October 20, 2014: Sneak Peek at "LEGO Batman: Be-Leaguered" with SupermanPrint

LEGO Batman: Be-Leaguered DC Comics gives us a sneak peek at the upcoming one-shot animated Cartoon Network special titled "LEGO DC Comics: Batman Be-Leaguered", which will tie in to the upcoming "LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham" video game.

    Batman prides himself on being a loner, a totally self-sufficient one-man-band. Just ask anyone; Batgirl, Robin, Nightwing, Alfred... anyone. So, he is understandably irritated when his nightly cleanup of Gotham City villains is interrupted by Superman, who pesters Batman to join his new superhero team, the Justice League. After Batman makes it quite clear to the Man of Steel that his invitation has been declined, Superman flies off disappointed... whereupon he is overcome with a strange energy and vanishes!

"LEGO DC Comics: Batman Be-Leaguered" airs Monday, October 27 at 6:00pm (ET/PT) on Cartoon Network.

October 20, 2014: Flying Man Spotted by Plane Pilots and PassengersPrint

Superman and Plane You will believe a man can fly! Well, pilots and passengers on board an Airbus 320 plane from the UK certainly believe they saw a flying man.

    An Airbus 320 in the UK narrowly missed what passengers and crew say resembled a flying person, who appeared to be suspended in the air with no visible means of support.

    The flight was coming in to Manchester Airport when pilots spotted the man. They checked for reports of skydivers, parachuters or gliders in the area, and found none.

    According to a report from the body that investigates near-misses in UK aviation, the crew didn't get a long look at the "flying man".

    “They first sighted the object a few hundred metres in the 11 o'clock position 200 to 300ft above,” the report stated.

    "It passed down the left-hand side of the aircraft at 100 to 200m.
