DC Collectibles DC Comics Icons: Superman Statue
Sculpted by Gentle Giant Studios! Now the Man of Steel can stand watch in your own home with this stunning statue that perfectly captures his DC Comics -The New 52 look. Limited edition of 5,200. Measures approximately 11" tall.
What Superman Unchained is all about for me - not to spoil it - is why I think Superman is great. It's meant to be a kind of challenge to the kind of conventional take on Superman, which is that he stands for "truth, justice, and the American way," that he's this monolithic symbol of all things that are good and right. To me, you start writing him and you realize he doesn't know what the hell he's doing half the time. It's basically trial and error. He's doing the best he can. It's not that he stands for anything; if anything, he stands for following your own moral compass even if that compass leads you to places that make absolutely no logical sense whatsoever. Spell your own doom. Why would you create a human identity, fall in love, or even grow affectionate towards all of your human friends and coworkers when you age much more slowly than them? In a few years, they're going to realize that something's wrong. Why would you ally yourself with no government if you know every government is going to be building weapons to take you down if you interfere with a protocol of theirs? Why would you help with some things, some catastrophic events but not others like political oppression?
Superman, to me, is inspiring and wonderful because he isn't a straight beam of light that's always right. He's actually this zigzagging, trial-and-error beam of light, and in that, he's ten times as more inspiring than if he always knew the right thing to do. In that way, the last issue is very much about that idea.
One of the things about issue #9 I love the most - again, not to spoil it - is that I think the person who understands that the best about Superman, in some ways, is Lex. There's a reason why, and it's a fun secret we reveal at the end of the issue. So it really ends where I hoped it would end, and I couldn't be prouder of it.
"The opportunity is huge. And no studio is better positioned to take advantage of it than Warner Bros."
"The demand for high quality video content is growing fast - in the United States and around the world - as new technologies have created new platforms and millions of new connected consumers," said Tsujihara. "The opportunity is huge. And no studio is better positioned to take advantage of it than Warner Bros."
As part of his presentation, Tsujihara announced a bold expansion of the industry's broadest theatrical slate, built around the largest, most important global franchises. Warner Bros. Pictures will release three LEGO-branded films over the next four years, building upon the enormous success of this year's "The LEGO Movie" ($468 million worldwide box office), starting with "Ninjago" in 2016, directed by Charlie Bean and produced by Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Phil Lord and Chris Miller. Batman will take a star turn in "The LEGO Batman Movie" in 2017, directed by Chris McKay, and the sequel, "The LEGO Movie 2," will debut in 2018.
The Studio will release three pictures, in 2016, 2018 and 2020, based on best-selling author J.K. Rowling's original story and screenwriting debut, "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them." Set in an extension of her familiar wizarding world, featuring magical creatures and characters inspired by Harry Potter's Hogwarts textbook and its fictitious author, Newt Scamander, "Fantastic Beasts" will be directed by David Yates, who directed the last four Harry Potter movies, and reunite the filmmaking team of David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram.
And, in a massive expansion of the Studio's DC Entertainment-branded content, Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema will release a slate of at least 10 movies - as well as stand-alone Batman and Superman films - from 2016 through 2020 that expands this prized universe of characters:
Filming is slated to start in the Playas area in November, according to those sources. OneHeadlightInk.com, a New Mexico film blog, is also reporting the movie is slated to shoot in New Mexico.

Michigan State University posted online that the Broad and Circle Drive from Collingwood Drive to just west of the Broad are closed today through Friday, which indicates that filming on the movie is ready to take place during that period.
Rumor and speculation began to circulate when Lexcorp trucks were photographed on location.
"I saw a lot of Twitter comments when that was happening that people wanted me to play Supergirl," she said. "I don't know what their plan is for it, but I wish them well, and maybe I can show up on it at some point. Maybe they'll have me come in as a villain or something; that would be fun."
As for what advice she could give to whoever lands the role of Supergirl she replied, "Just make it your own. Everyone has an idea how she should be, which I was concerned about when I played her. When you find a way to relate to her and bring your own self into it, I think people appreciate it. You can't make everything the same, so just make it your own."
"I absolutely understand how everyone sees him as Superman," Reeve said. "To me he was dad and he was just awesome. He could fly an airplane, he could sail a boat, he was an accomplished piano player. Just the other day, I found some of his stuff and it had this sheet music in it ... To me, it looked like someone had just taken ink and thrown it at the page, but he minored in music theory."
After the Comic Con panel, Reeve spoke to ABC News and touched on his father's untouchable legacy as Superman.
"Superman was the original superhero and dad did such a fantastic job in his performance that for a lot of people, he just personified the role so strongly that it almost be impossible to disassociate," he said. "Still to this day, which is a source of pride."

If I wasn't totally sold on the Superman/Wonder Woman relationship before I am now.
I almost can't put into words how much I enjoyed this issue. From the opening pages where Superman and Wonder Woman are reunited and are just so happy to see each other to the spat they have in the middle of the issue to that ending where they felt like a real couple. I really don't have anything bad to say about this comic. It's odd. Usually I can find something that bugs me but the one thing that I had a problem with (Superman and Wonder Woman arguing in the middle of the book) turned out to be a plot point.
Seriously. This was awesome.

Roven added that Affleck's height was also a factor.
"We also wanted a guy with big stature. Ben is 6' 4". Henry [Cavill] is 6'1". We wanted Batman to tower over Superman. Not hugely, not like a basketball player. Superman needed to 'look up' to Batman. We wanted that dynamic, and Ben could do that, easily," he said.
From the top down, everyone on this side of the screen worked endlessly to create a continuous Smallville experience from the television screen to the computer/tablet/phone display, to the printed page. As Clark's world grew and expanded into "Superman's", so did the kind of stories we were able to tell - ones of scale and scope that never would have been possible to realize or conceive on a television show's budget. For viewers who came to the platform (and comics!) from the show, thank you for trusting us with your characters, your world, your ships and your stories.
"Smallville: Season 11", which enjoyed a run of 14 stories, equalling 125 digital issues or 40 print issues, will end its run with the conclusion of the current "Continuity" story.
