May 12, 2016: "Supergirl" Renewed for Second Season, Moves to The CWPrint

Supergirl "Supergirl" has been renewed for a second season... but she won't fly on CBS anymore... The Maid of Might will join fellow DC Superheroes on The CW.

    Supergirl, which stars Melissa Benoist as the Girl of Steel, will now air on The CW, joining the other super series in producer Greg Berlanti's universe, Arrow, The Flash, and DC's Legends of Tomorrow.

    Reports also have it that the series will move production from Los Angeles to Vancouver, where those other shows also film, but The CW would not confirm. The move could also bring more cross-over opportunities between Berlanti-verse brands, such as when The Flash joined Supergirl earlier this year.

Mild Mannered Reviews - Superman: Coming of the Supermen #4

Scheduled to arrive in stores: May 4, 2016

Cover date: July 2016

"The Coming of the Supermen" - Part 4: "Sun of New Gods"

Writer: Neal Adams
Penciller: Neal Adams
Inker: Neal Adams with Buzz and Josh Adams

Reviewed by: Keith Samra

    It is still very evident that this issue is a chapter in the larger story that Adams has plotted. It certainly reads that way.

    I'm not sure where to start. My main gripe with this series has always been the dialogue, it's so bizarre and out there at times, it barely makes sense in the narrative. Also it's so out of character in places, for example the opening line by Superman:

    "Return the boy, you useless animal. Nothing requires you. You make our existence ugly with your presence. Give me the boy or your life is forfeit".

    Firstly, those are some harsh words, they do illustrate Superman's feelings toward Kalibak, but I'd never imagine him saying such things.

    I know people like to complain about expositional dialogue... But we can sure use some in this series I feel. It may help the story flow better. I had a really hard time following the story with this issue. I don't usually like to be negative, and try to find the good in issues I review, but I'm finding it hard with this one.

May 10, 2016: Sneak Peek at DC Universe: The ExhibitPrint

Warner Bros. has released a short video giving us a sneak peek at some of the items on display inside "DC Universe: The Exhibit".

Tour guide John Kourounis takes us inside the Warner Bros. Archives where fans can see props and costumes from some of their favorite DC Comics/Warner Bros. films, including the chance to handle the chunk of Kryptonite as seen in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice".

Kryptonite Opening May 24, 2016, Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood and DC Entertainment will reveal the newest star attraction on the Warner Bros. lot in DC Universe: The exhibit pays homage to the origins of DC Comics, including all seven Super Heroes of the Justice League, exclusively at Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood. This addition follows last summer's grand opening of the interactive Stage 48: Script to Screen, which anchors the three-hour Studio Tour. At the Tour, guests explore the real sets and soundstages where some of the greatest names in entertainment have made history.

"Since 1934, DC Comics has built a legacy of creating the world's greatest Super Heroes and Super-Villains," said Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood's Executive Director, Danny Kahn. "DC Universe: The Exhibit gives you the chance to explore the world of these characters from their first comic book appearance, to our latest feature blockbusters."

The exhibit also showcases "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" through an interactive experience, paying homage to the original "Super Hero," Superman, and nocturnal crime-fighter, Batman. Guests will have the opportunity to get up close to Kryptonite, Superman's sole weakness. Inserting their hands into a pair of gloves, inside a case holding the element, they will mirror Lex Luthor (played in the film by Jesse Eisenberg) and his kryptonite case featured in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." Additionally, guests can use a voice modulator to alter their pitch to imitate Batman's, just as Alfred (Jeremy Irons) demonstrates in the film. See striking Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman costumes, as well as the authentic costumes of Lois, Clark, Alfred, and Bruce Wayne, original Batcave set pieces, and much more.

DC Universe: The Exhibit is coming May 24th to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood. Book your tickets today: www.wbstudiotour.com

May 9, 2016: Syfy Officially Gives "Krypton" Pilot the Green LightPrint

Krypton Syfy has today announced that it has greenlit a pilot for the "Krypton" TV series.

    "Krypton is one of the most iconic stories in the comic book universe," said Bill McGoldrick, Executive Vice President, Scripted Content, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. "In the talented hands of David S. Goyer and the DC Entertainment/Warner Horizon Television team, this exciting Syfy project will take viewers back to Superman's home to show how the timeless legend began."

    From Warner Horizon Television and DC Comics, Krypton takes place years before the Superman legend we know, when the House of El was shamed and ostracized. This drama, which is in development, follows the Man of Steel's grandfather as he brings hope and equality to Krypton, turning a planet in disarray into one worthy of giving birth to the greatest Super Hero ever known.

The pilot will be produced by Warner Horizon Television. The pilot is written by David Goyer (Man of Steel) with Ian Goldberg (Once Upon A Time, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles). Goyer will executive produce through his company Phantom Four with Damian Kindler (Sleepy Hollow), who will serve as showrunner. Colm McCarthy (Peaky Blinders) is set to direct the pilot.

"Doomsday Scenario"

Writer: Brian Buccellato
Penciller: Mike S. Miller
Inker: Mike S. Miller
Cover: David Yardin

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

    Story-wise, the execution is better than expected. The sequences connect well, and by issue's end, it's hard to say that it wasn't a rewarding read for anyone who's been enjoying Injustice thus far. However, the fight, and the treachery that enters if, were so light and wasted, it's hard to come away with more than a shrug by story's end. A match between these three power houses could have been quite dynamic and very visually appealing, but Injustice makes the same error too many comics do when it comes to these situations. Rather than let the battle tell the story, Buccellato splits between a less than mean fight, and a needless transition. Readers who've been with the book this long know that Lex will get away with his machinations. What they don't know is how a full-on match between Bizarro, Doomsday, and Regime Superman will play out, after being offered the scenario. Four more to go. Stay the course, good people, stay the course.
