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.

    The last couple of issues (I'm including the"Future's End" one-shot in that phrase) of this series felt like Tony Bedard was a bit off his game, but this one seems like the title has returned to its normal quality storytelling. It's hard to find anything wrong with this book from a writing standpoint. I loved everything about Bedard's tale from the team-up with Red Hood to the return of my favorite character, Michael. This issue had everything a comic fan like myself can sincerely enjoy. Bedard gives off the atmosphere that's a mixture of a buddy cop film from the 1980s and the best of such titles as the old World's Finest that showed the families of both the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel working together to fight crime. That's just some of the many reasons why Supergirl #35 is so entertaining.

    It's amazing that we've not seen the dynamic between Luthor and Superman, that we've see now between Lex and Bruce Wayne. Under Scott Lobdell there were the seeds of something new to their legendary contention, but it was quickly abandoned and rubbed out with another storyline and a few panels of plastic surgery. The oneupmanship between Lex and Bruce is petty and beneath the two of them. Two men of such vaunted intellect wouldn't waste time urinating for distance, and it's a waste of panels to indulge the sophomoric and trite expectations that men in contention need to behave in such a manner, particularly with so much on the line for Bruce. Lena Luthor in a wheel chair wasn't so much of a surprise, as seeing Lena Luthor at all. Lena is a Silver Age fixture that reoccurs every so often once the crisis gong has been sounded. It will be interesting to see how well she's used and just how long she remains this go around.

    I can't fault it... well I can - if I ask for more Clark, but honestly his actions, his leadership, his presence, plus the characterizations of his friends... it all adds up to pure Superman gold. In a way it's sad the show never got to make this arc happen... it would have been stunning, but just to see it unfold beyond the show is good enough. I wonder if this earth will be one folded into the DCU proper? It truly deserves to continue. Smallville is actually delivering more Superman action and drama than the current books. - Yes I said it.

    The Injustice set-up at this point is to give Regime an antagonist that ostensibly seems to be a credible threat, but come one. After all that's happened, does anyone really believe that Constantine can pose any true threat to Regime? If this was Superman, the paragon of virtue and morality, Constantine might have a shot. However, it's pretty clear that Regime is willing to do whatever he has to when it comes to his objective of world domination for no damn good reason. Next year, it will probably be Team Batman armed with red solar radiation weapons. Pathetic. The irony in all of this, is that the only one who can stop Regime, is that same sentimental and compassionate wimp from 2010. That is saying a lot. Regime is the Superman that so many have champed at the bit for, and while he's more than a match for whatever the Injustice world can throw at him, he's still a piker for what he used to be: a hero.

    If the Spectre is on the side of Regime Superman, this universe is really out of sorts. It would necessitate a change in the title from Injustice: Gods Among Us to Injustice: God is Us... and you lot are scat out of luck. Support in the form of the Spectre is a game over scenario, one way or the other. If he's on Regime's side, the events from Day of Vengeance are a clear reminder of what magic means to the Spectre. Nothing. If he's against Regime, DC Comics Presents #29 shows even more clearly that Superman can do anything... but not against the Spectre. There is a certain amount of confidence that one has to have in a writer to believe that he can pull off what needs to be done with this scenario, and this reviewer doesn't possess that sort of trust in Taylor. Year Two saw a dragged storyline where beings of immense power were beaten (Ganthet, Mogo) because of a stupidity that was induced by the plot that required them to be as moronic as they were.

October 18, 2014: Superman Costume Statue of Murdered Boy UnveiledPrint

Baldwin Statue You'll recall that back in July DC Entertainment reversed their initial decision to allow a Toronto family to use the Superman "S" shield on a statue dedicated to the memory of five-year-old Jeffrey Baldwin who died in 2002. Today the official unveiling took place in Toronto's Greenwood Park.

The life-sized bronze statue sees Baldwin dressed up as Superman, an image familiar to anyone who followed the inquest into the boy's death.

    The five-year-old boy died in 2002 after suffering horrific abuse at the hands of his maternal grandparents, but the life-size statue in the park at Greenwood Ave. and Dundas St. E. depicts the little boy as seen in one of the few happy moments in his short life - wearing a Superman costume.

    "Hopefully the statue will be a reminder to people of the need to report (suspected abuse) and possibly save a child's life," said Todd Boyce, who led the charge to have the bronze statue made, at the unveiling.

    "There's so much support and compassion for Jeffrey," said an emotional Todd Boyce, the Ottawa father who spearheaded online fundraising efforts that raised more than $36,000 for the memorial. "So much that he didn't have in his life, but he has it now."

Superman Homepage reporter Patrick Asselin was in attendance at the unveiling, and took the photo (shown right) of the statue.

October 18, 2014: Lex Luthor Benefit Brings Stars to FilmingPrint

SPOILER WARNING: Details on what was filmed at the Broad Art Museum in East Lansing over the past few days is revealed below.

A letter sent to Latino-Review.com by an extra who (going against the confidentiality agreement they signed) revealed that the scene filmed at the Broad Art Museum in East Lansing was not at Luthor's home as many had speculated, but was at the Metropolis Central Library, where a party was being held to celebrate its reopening...

    A couple of on set people have confirmed the occasion for the party thrown by Lex Luthor. It is the reopening of Metropolis Central Library post the battle for Metropolis. Lexcorp funded the construction because "Intellect is man's biggest strength" which seems to be a direct shot at Superman.

    Other small details tied to that scene, the movie will have an almost red carpet montage where the rich and famous are asked their views about the Superman who appeared in the public eye recently. The red carpet setup is attached, and will include both Bruce Wayne and Lex Luthor being asked that question by Lois Lane and Clark Kent on the carpet.

Photos taken by Bananadoc reveal many of the main cast arriving on location for filming of the above-mentioned scene, including Jesse Eisenberg, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Tao Okamoto, Holly Hunter, and Ben Affleck.

It was also revealed that Jay himself had been involved as an extra for the movie, and will appear in the film when it's released. Congrats Jay!


October 18, 2014: Is Jena Malone Playing a Female Robin in "Batman v Superman"?Print

Jena Malone Jena Malone, one of the stars of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire", who also worked with Zack Snyder on "Sucker Punch", was spotted on set with the director for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" back in August, which set off speculation about her being in the film... but those rumors were shot down by Jena herself who claimed she was just catching up with Zack.

But, as we know from Jason Mamoa, stars denying they've been cast in a role is nothing new, and it seems that Jena may indeed be playing a female Robin to Ben Affleck's Batman in "Batman v Superman" according to The Hollywood Reporter...

    While describing a scene that would be filming - a fight between Batman and Lex Luthor at a swank party - a reporter for the station dropped the news that the script featured a female Robin character - and that Malone could be playing her.

    The report then cut to a person claiming to be an extra - and the source of the information - who said that a multimillion-dollar lawsuit could be filed against anyone violating the movie's nondisclosure agreements. In a bid to protect the source, only the person's hands were shown and his/her voice was altered, giving the affair a Dr. Evil-meets-a-Munchkin vibe.

This is yet another indication that "Batman v Superman" is heavily inspired by Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns".
