July 14, 2014: Gary Oldman Skeptical About "Batman v Superman"Print

Dawn of Justice Gary Oldman, who starred as Commissioner Gordon in the "Dark Knight" trilogy of Batman films, sat down with Yahoo! Movies for an interview, where he sounded unsure about the premise of "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice".

    "They want to keep it going. Of course they do. But, it's Superman yeah? Batman and Superman together? We shall see."

    "The thing about Nolan, there was some grounding of reality to it. In our trilogy, and as fantastical and as big as The Joker was, it was based [on reality]... we could relate to it."

    "But now we've got a Batman and we've got a guy who can fly who's an alien?! We'll have to see..."

    "It's got big shoes to fill".

Cover: Jorge Jimenez & Michael Atiyeh

Reviewed by: Adam Dechanel

    Yes it's silly, yes it's explosive, yes it's fun.

    The title has truly found its feet and is delivering an energetic, story that, while obviously a huge band aid fixing a catalogue of errors, has really grown into its own.

    I hate that this is almost the end of the journey. In one respect I feel happy that the book is finally in the hands of someone that can deliver a fantastical story and can take your breath away with its unexpected twists... but in another I wish this was in 2011 when the title began. If it were I feel sure it would have been one of the New 52's best books. I feel like someone dropped the baton here in the higher editorial levels and so, in another respect, I feel angry that we the readers endured some of the worst Superboy stories ever told to get to this point. It is testament to a good writer that they can grab the concepts and elements that floundered and pull them together into something special.

July 13, 2014: Superman Featured in HISHE Godzilla VideoPrint

July 13, 2014: Raunchy Superman Comedy "In a Single Bound"Print

In a Single Bound Kyle Walker, a Superman fan and playwright from West Michigan, has written a raunchy comedy and parody on the Superman theme titled "In a Single Bound", which will premiere this week at the Dog Story Theater in Grand Rapids.

    Board member of The University Wits Kyle Walker joined the WZZM13 Weekend Morning News to share more about the debut of "In a Single Bound."

    Walker was inspired to write the play, by how he related to Superman in his childhood. "I grew up very a shy and quiet kid," he says, "I related more with Clark Kent than Superman. But when I stopped and thought about it, I realized that Clark Kent and Superman are the same person. Things like that are what helped me out of my shell."

"In a single Bound" premieres on July 17 at 8:00pm at the Dog Story Theater, on Jefferson Avenue in downtown Grand Rapids. Purchase tickets from the Dog Story Theater website.

July 10, 2014: Will Doomsday Appear in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice"?Print

Doomsday It seems you can't go two days without a new rumor for the "Batman v Superman" movie, with today's rumor from BleedingCool.com claiming that Doomsday may appear in the upcoming film.

    Bleeding Cool sources who have been rather reliable in the past have told us that they have seen "Batman v Superman" designs for the character of Doomsday. In the comics, Doomsday was the creature who killed Superman, in an epic battle across all the Superman titles, culminating in a battle composed entirely of splash pages drawn by Dan Jurgens.

    Recently, the character returned in the rebooted New 52 Superman titles, in the crossover event Doomed masterminded by Scott Lobdell.

    Now, of course, much can change in the production process. This may be used purely for flashback purposes on the screen, looking at the life (and death) of Superman. It may be purely for promotional efforts to accompany the film. Or it may not make it to the final cut.

What do you think? Will Doomsday be in the new movie? Will we see the death of Superman in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice"?
