September 17, 2015: Max Landis Pitches Sequel to "Man of Steel"Print

Max Landis, the screenwriter best known for his film "Chronicle", who is a big Superman fan and has his own Superman comic book series "Superman: American Alien" coming out in November, relates to Screen Junkies how he would approach a stand-along sequel to "Man of Steel" if he was asked to write the screenplay.

Man of Steel

    In the wake of the widespread destruction in the 2013 film, Superman is a reviled figure while Clark Kent, suffering from PTSD, has hung up his cape. Ready to leave Metropolis forever, Clark is given one last assigned for the Daily Planet: to interview charismatic billionaire Lex Luthor - "basically an evil Elon Musk" - portrayed by none other than Tom Hanks. In a film directed by James Cameron.

    It turns out the brilliant Luthor knows Clark's true identity, and offers to help him repair his damaged reputation, by sending him where he's needed most. In exchange, however, Superman will have to perform a few favors. Despite Batman's warnings, Clark agrees to Lex's terms. It's only after he captures some of the world's seemingly dangerous meta-humans and vigilantes - Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Arrow, Martian Manhunter - that Superman discovers Lex's true, sinister intentions: to assemble his own superhuman league, mightier than any army.

September 16, 2015: Jesse Eisenberg Praises Role of Lex LuthorPrint

Lex Luthor Talking with Observer.com, actor Jesse Eisenberg speaks about being a part of a "comic book movie", the challenge of playing Lex Luthor, and the all-powerful nature of Superman. Here's a few excerpts from the interview...

    "A lot of great actors are doing comic book adaptations," he said, spreading jam, a touch defensively. (Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter and Laurence Fishburne are in Batman v Superman). "But that's because those movies have become so good."

    Though the film is top-secret, apparently Mr. Eisenberg feels safe enough to disclose a few things about his debut: "In a lot of ways Luthor is more of a stretch than any character you would do in an independent movie, which is normally the place you stretch. So in that way it was not at all compromised. If anything it was the best, most advantageous role I've ever been given."

    "Now people expect the tone to be more realistic just because we live in a world where the average audience member has a sense of psychological motivations... [It raises the question] how can one man - Superman - have so much power? These are the kind of things that we talk about when we think about authoritarian states, when we talk about Vladimir Putin having a strong foothold in Eastern Europe. They're addressing geopolitics in this movie and not in a way that's pretentious or esoteric."

September 16, 2015: No Connection Between TV and Film Says Diane NelsonPrint

Diane Nelson In an interview with Variety, Diane Nelson, President of WB Consumer Products and President-Chief Content Officer of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment said she has every intention of keeping their DC Entertainment properties on TV and film separated.

While she admits that the shared-universe concept "has worked beautifully" for Marvel, Nelson says that that method of universe building "could end up handcuffing our creators into trying to work with the same storyline or force them to hold back characters or introduce certain characters".

Nelson also talks about the concept of "superhero fatigue" saying, "We do believe we're in a period time where comics and superheroes are really the driving force within pop culture. We have to be really sensitive to making sure were not creating any stories that don't feel like they're ready to be told."

September 16, 2015: Mehcad Brooks Talks About Jimmy Olsen ReimaginedPrint

In an interview with The Wrap, Mehcad Brooks talks about reinventing Jimmy Olsen for the 21st century for his take on the character in the upcoming "Supergirl" TV series.

James Olsen

    "The character was created 75 years ago, and in the societal mentality back then, people were very monochro-matic. But we're righting a lot of those social inequities from the past."

    "The DNA of this character has not changed," he said, ticking off the similarities and differences. "I have less red hair and a better tan, basically. I'm a nerd–he's a nerd. My mother's a journalist, so I come from that background. I've got freckles–he's got freckles. He's a hopeless romantic–same here. He's got a famous best friend–so do I. He's got daddy issues–let's stop there."

    He grinned. "It's a character reimagined. He's a little more heroic, but I think he's going to be just as likable."

After 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, Kara Zor-El, Superman's cousin, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be, on the series premiere of SUPERGIRL, Monday, Oct. 26 (8:30-9:30 PM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network. The series moves to its regular time period (8:00-9:00 PM) on Monday, Nov. 2.

September 15, 2015: Supergirl and Bizarro Rumor for "Man of Steel" SequelPrint

Kara Zor-El HeroicHollywood.com jumps forward with yet another rumor (well speculation really) about what the reported stand-alone sequel to "Man of Steel" will be about.

The "unconfirmed" details include the involvement of Brainiac seeking out the Kryptonian Codex from Kara Zor-El, and creating a Bizarro creature to follow her to Earth.

    The idea has always been the sequel will introduce Supergirl and will focus on her as much as on Superman himself. In fact, this is what supposedly got George Miller's attention in the first place. He is attracted to strong female protagonists as shown in Mad Max: Fury Road by its co-star Charlize Theron as Furiosa.

    But wait there is more!

    Brainiac wants the codex from Kara and get this, from the bits of Kryptonian knowledge Brainiac does have creates Bizarro!

    Yes, Brainiac creates Bizarro and sends the creature after Kara to retrieve the codex for him. Pretty cool right? This basic plotline is supposedly what Zack Snyder and David Goyer pitched to Warner brass after Man of Steel was done as a sequel idea.

While the involvement of Brainiac and Bizarro would be extremely interesting, the problem with the above "rumor" is the fact that Kara doesn't have (nor ever had) the Kryptonian Codex... Jor-El stole its contents and embedded it within the cells of his son, Kal-El... aka Superman.

September 15, 2015: Top 10 Portrayals of SupermanPrint

Superman Portrayals WatchMojo.com has released a video listing their Top 10 Portrayals of Superman, which includes live-action portrayals of Kirk Alyn, George Reeves, Christopher Reeve, Dean Cain, Tom Welling, Brandon Routh and Henry Cavill, as well as voice portrayals in animation from Danny Dark, Tim Daly and George Newbern.

While this video is extremely well put together, I think Tim Daly is ranked too far down the list. I'm also shocked and dismayed that Clayton "Bud" Collyer didn't even rank a mention. Not only did Collyer perfectly portray the voice of Superman in the 1940s Superman Radio Series, but he also voiced the character in the Fleischer "Superman" animated shorts and 1966's "The New Adventures of Superman" (and actually played the character longer than any other actor, which the video above incorrectly attributes to Tom Welling).

September 14, 2015: More Rumors About Superman Sequel MoviePrint

Man of Steel With rumors and speculation swirling in recent months on a possible stand-alone "Superman" movie, we have yet another rumor to add to the mix.

To get you up to speed... So far we've heard that George Miller ("Mad Max: Fury Road") was rumored to be in line to direct a solo Superman film (a "Man of Steel 2" if you will). Then we heard that any such movie was on "permanent hold". Then Zack Snyder claimed he'd had no knowledge of the George Miller rumor, but would definitely be open to the idea.

Today, HeroicHollywood.com claims that George Miller is still in the mix, that the film probably won't see the light of day until 2019 or 2020 at the earliest, and that Brainiac is the most likely villain of the movie.

I call this one more speculation than rumor. There's no script in place, so who the villain might be is anyone's guess really. With Zack Snyder telling News.com.au that he'd be happy to talk to George Miller about the idea of doing a Superman movie, it's not a stretch to claim he's a possibility of doing a Superman movie if he wants it.

As for Brainiac... He's an obvious fan-favorite, and a villain we haven't seen portrayed in a Superman movie yet. Doing another alien invasion type scenario (after Zod) might be difficult to pull off.
