Christopher Reeve as Superman Premium Format Figure
Featuring an unmistakable lifelike portrait, film accurate tailored costume and poseable cape, this remarkable statue captures one of the most fondly remembered depictions of Superman ever committed to the big screen.
Seamlessly blending live action and 3D video projection, Nothing But Sky is a comic book biopic, where we leap off the cliffs of artistry and love... and hope that we can fly.
"There is also a local animation team convened by Keith. The presentation follows the various stages of creating a comic book - pencil drawings, then filling in and erasing, then colouring and so on. We tell the story along a similar arc using video projections to create sets, movement and even costumes."
Thanks to Patrick Asselin for the lead on this info.
Tony Bedard: "Secret Origins" is an anthology with separate stories. This is a pretty straightforward origins series, but now that we're a couple years into the New 52 Era, I think that's exactly what's called for. We have a lot of new readers learning the ropes of the DC Universe, and we have a lot of longtime readers who want to know what's in-continuity now and what's changed. "Secret Origins" will give you all the basics of your favorite characters as they stand today, plus I think you'll get a sense of what the character priorities are now - what's the unique flavor of a series or character you might not have tried yet.
So is your Supergirl story going to be a one-and-done tale, or will it stretch out over multiple issues of "Secret Origins?"
I'm doing one twelve-page story that shows us Kara Zor-El as she was before Krypton exploded and how she is now a stranger in a strange land on planet Earth. We'll hit all the basics: her powers, how they work, where she got her costume, etc., but we'll also hit on some really core character stuff that stems from Kara's parents, her family, and especially her mother, Alura. I think there's stuff in these twelve pages that could pay off for years in the monthly "Supergirl" title.
"You have to remember that Batman is just a dude. He's got no powers. So the fact that Superman is scared of him says something about the gravitas he carries. And it's not just because he's willing to kill. It's because he's scary," continued Green.
When King defended Affleck as an actor, Green countered, "Yes, but there is only so much you can act a role before people are or are not going to believe you in that role. I'm never going to play a MMA fighter, because I'd step into the ring with an actual MMA fighter like Batista, and I wouldn't look correct, so there is a physicality of it."
"He had the ability to crush me, but just enough that I couldn't walk properly. I felt horrible and a little sick, but I still wanted to come back," laughs Cavill. "The intense training led to what I call a ‘recognition moment,' during which you think, ‘OK, I can do this it's not going to kill me, number one. And number two, I'm in safe hands. And finally number three, I'm actually enjoying it.'"
"Yes, it hurt - in fact it was excruciating. But I liked pushing past that point to where you realize your body is actually more than capable of doing it. The moment when that happens is wonderful."
Now fully on the way to getting into peak physical condition for the role of Superman, Cavill was put on a training schedule which was way more intense than any he'd had to do for any previous role he'd undertaken. Through months and months of preparation and by using a variety of functional strength workouts and following the instructions from Twight, Cavill was able to increase his body mass significantly before the shoot even began.
"It was a lot of functional workouts. It was lots of kettlebells, different types of squats, sandbag stuff, goblet squats, man-makers, Olympic lifts, sled pulls," he explains. "We would train the complete body, do dumbbell stuff, bodyweight stuff, power cleans, deadlifts and push presses. A lot of it was based around a two-part, 100-rep routine that lasted about two hours - lifting very, very heavy weights."

I figured we'd see some other doppelgängers make appearances, I just didn't think one of them would be a Batman-Joker hybrid. That was an interesting twist, hardly earth-shattering (get it?) but interesting nonetheless.
I wrestled over the score a bit on this one. On the one hand, it's still as entertaining as previous installments. On the other, I'm starting to get a little frustrated waiting to find out just why the Monitors do what they do.

What I liked the most about this issue was Superman being... well, Superman. He's in an alien environment and isn't sure how things work but when an innocent life is threatened he goes into action. Nothing else matters. He has to save the day. Ghost Solider might be right on an intellectual level but on a primal level Superman has to do what he thinks is right. More and more I see that if nothing else Greg Pak gets who Superman is on a fundamental level and because of that he is fast becoming my favorite New 52 Superman writer.

Part of me wants to like the Lex and Batman and their merry band against the crew the Crime Syndicate sent to kill them fight more than the Sinestro vs. Power Ring battle. To be fair there was a lot to like here. From Black Adam picking a side to Captain Cold and Black Manta vs. the Shadow Thief to Captain Cold telling everyone that Batman isn't so scary in the light, like at all Johns gave us an engaging fight scene that ultimately formed the final, final opposition team to go against the Syndicate. Not that I think that throw down is going to be as important as the Syndicate and our "heroes" teaming up against the bigger threat hinted at on the final two pages of this issue but I'll get back to that in a paragraph or two.
