Mild Mannered Reviews - Injustice: Year Four - Chapter #10Print

Injustice: Year Four - Chapter #10

Mild Mannered Reviews - Injustice: Year Four - Chapter #10

Released Digitally: July 7, 2015

"Mayhem"

Writer: Brian Buccellato
Penciller: Xermanico
Inker: Xermanico
Cover: Neil Googe with Rex Lokus

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

    There's a flashback in the story... actually, there's a flashback in every Injustice story this year, that details what Regime was like previously. He wore a proper outfit, and trusted his teammates. In a sparring match with Diana, Superman doesn't take it seriously, so Batman takes him to task, positing that if Superman were to battle her, she would defeat him. That piece of analepsis is lost in the miasmatic film of what Year Four has turned into. There is nothing occurring of value, and more than half of this Year has been spent on a fight that refuses to happen, because of other fights. There is no movement to speak of, and it makes the flashback more ridiculous under a discerning eye. It's supposed to be a piece of character development for Regime Superman, but it's never expounded on, and is just thrown by the wayside with the slum of other needless and pointless flashbacks that have been given to readers for consumption.

July 16, 2015: Rematch - Screw Attack Revist "Superman vs. Goku" Death BattlePrint

Goku vs Superman ScrewAttack.com has announced that they'll be revisiting the Goku vs. Superman "Death Battle" for a rematch!

The rematch will premiere at SGC on Friday, July 17 and will be live streamed this Saturday at 9.00pm EST! It will be posted to YouTube immediately following the Death Battle panel.

The first time around they claimed that "This is it! The ultimate answer to the ultimate question! Two alien saviors battle to the death! One will win. One will die." With Superman coming out victorious... Seems Goku fans weren't impressed.

The Superman Homepage staff were consulted for the original "Death Battle", and assisted with information and references for Superman's powers and abilities. However we were not contacted about this rematch.

July 15, 2015: "Batman v Superman" and "Suicide Squad" Group PhotoPrint

With Warner Bros. taking both "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" and the "Suicide Squad" movies to San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, The Hollywood Reporter brought both groups together on July 11 for a photo shoot inside the San Diego Convention Center.

Group Photo

    Superheroes and supervillains collided - quite amicably, we must say - at The Hollywood Reporter's top-secret Comic-Con photo shoot.

    After stunning the Hall H crowd on Saturday with new footage, 17 actors, as well as directors Zack Snyder and David Ayer, from Warner Bros.' Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad - together comprising the long-awaited first phase of Warners' DC Cinematic Universe - zoomed off for what would be their first photo together.

Read the full report about the photo shoot at The Hollywood Reporter website.


July 15, 2015: Supergirl Cast Comic-Con InterviewPrint

Supergirl TVLine.com caught up with the cast of "Supergirl" during San Diego Comic-Con for a group chat.

    In a freewheeling chat with TVLine's Michael Ausiello from our Comic-Con suite at the Hard Rock Hotel, Mehcad Brooks (True Blood) brushed off criticisms about the network's decision to cast him in the role of Jimmy Olsen - despite the fact that, in comic-book lore anyhow, the character is white. "If somebody has a problem, judge me on the content of my scenes - and my 'character,'" he says, as his co-stars offer their encouragements.

    Chyler Leigh (Grey's Anatomy), meanwhile, who plays the superhero's sister Alex Danvers, hinted that all may not be as it initially seems with her character. Smash grad Jeremy Jordan, however, teased that his Winn Schott's crush on the titular heroine will be screamingly obvious from the jump-off.


July 15, 2015: Brandon Routh Asked About "Batman v Superman"Print

Batman v Superman Catching up with Brandon Routh at Comic-Con in San Diego, Yahoo! News decided they'd asked enough questions about Brandon's involvement as The Atom on both "The Flash" and the upcoming "Legends of Tomorrow" TV shows, and asked the one-time Superman what he thought about Henry Cavill and the upcoming "Batman v Superman" movie...

    Routh's producer on the CW show Legends of Tomorrow quickly pointed out our faux pas (watch above), saying it's like asking about an ex-girlfriend. (Neither Singer nor Routh was asked back by Warner Bros. to make another Superman movie.)

    Routh admitted he'd always questioned the premise of Bats battling Supes, and said he assumes "in the end they'll work together and be one big happy family to preserve the DC [Comics] universe."

July 15, 2015: Bruce Campbell and Lucy Lawless Discuss "Batman v Superman"Print

Poster The LA Times interviewed Bruce Campbell and Lucy Lawless about their upcoming Starz series "Ash vs. Evil Dead", and somehow got onto the topic of "Batman v Superman". Campbell wasn't convinced...

Campbell: That's my only problem with some superheroes is that they're too perfect. Batman fighting Superman? To me that's, sorry Warner Bros., it's just a mistake. Because most fans are going to go, "Baloney... Superman, in his sleep."

But now he has special armor.

Campbell: Batman does? Well he's gonna need it - he's fighting Superman! His face is exposed. Punch Ben Affleck in the face, you're done. Walk away. What's for lunch?

Lawless: He's like, "No no not the face, not the face!"

Campbell: Hey, nice try. I'm not buying what they're selling. Because OK, Kryptonite, well, who's carrying around Kryptonite? Only Lex Luthor.

Lawless: Ah, Batman's suit, hello.

Campbell: Batman's suit is made out of Kryptonite?

Lawless: Probably.

Campbell: What a crock. Where's he gonna get it, on the Internet?

Lawless: You can get anything on the Internet. Kryptonite underpants.

July 15, 2015: Zod's Heat-Vision in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice"Print

In the new "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" trailer we saw confirmation that Bruce Wayne was in Metropolis at the time of the battle between Superman and General Zod. We even see Bruce looking up at a building as Zod's heat-vision cuts through the structure.

Now, thanks to the GIF below, we can see just how tightly Zack Snyder and his crew have matched that sequence from "Man of Steel" to Bruce Wayne's point of view in "Batman v Superman".

"Truth Hurts" - Part Two

Writer: Greg Pak
Penciller: Ardian Syaf
Inker: Vicente Cifuentes
Cover: Danny Miki, Ardian Syaf, Ulises Arreola Palomera

Reviewed by: Alisa Lea Gossage

    Superman does have moments when he isn't acting like a wannabe Punisher. He tries to reason with Ukur. For one moment, Superman acted like an adult instead of a 'swing-your-fists-first' teenager.

    Gordon does not have the analytical mind of Bruce Wayne. I like the fact that no one can truly be Batman, except Bruce Wayne. Putting on a 'Batman suit' doesn't make you Batman. This story clearly demonstrates that. Not that Gordon is a bad person, but, as Superman points out, he clearly isn't Batman.

    I also like the fact that Gordon and Superman do not mesh well together. As Gordon says, they are too much a like. Bruce and Clark are a totally different team. They know each other. For instance, Bruce would have known that Clark was sincere when he was trying to reason with Ukur. But Gordon didn't have a clue. He's a victim of bad press and bad assumptions. Bruce doesn't believe what he is told by others. He comes to his own conclusions. For years, he has watched Superman, and he knows who Superman is based on his own observations and conclusions.

    Suddenly, I'm beginning to like Batman/Bruce Wayne.

July 14, 2015: Jesse Eisenberg Says Comic-Con was TerrifyingPrint

Lex Luthor In an interview with the Associated Press (via Yahoo! News), Jesse Eisenberg compared the experience of facing thousands of fans at Comic-Con to "genocide"... explaining how "terrifying" the screaming fans were.

    "It is like being screamed at by thousands of people. I don't know what the experience is throughout history, probably some kind of genocide. I can't think of anything that's equivalent," Eisenberg, who plays Lex Luthor in next year's "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice," said of the massive San Diego convention that ended Sunday.

    On Tuesday, in an interview alongside Jason Segel promoting their film "The End of the Tour," Eisenberg explained his response.

    "Maybe on some cellular memory level, that's the only thing that seems like an equivalent social experience," he said. "Even if they're saying nice things, just being shouted at by thousands of people, it's horrifying."
