    Throughout August, the publisher is releasing a number of special selfie-themed variants featuring the likes of Batman, Supergirl, Aquaman and more snapping a lighthearted photo of themselves - or photobombing someone else's self portrait.

Some of the "Selfie" variant covers for the Superman family of characters include "Justice League United #4" by Emanuela Lupacchino, "Action Comics #34" by Gary Frank, "Batman/Superman #14" by Paulo Siqueira, "Superman #34" by Neil Edwards and Danny Miki, "Superman/Wonder Woman #11" by Tony S. Daniel, and "The Flash #34" by Eddy Barrows and Eber Ferreira.

July 9, 2014: DC Reverses Decision to Allow "S" Symbol on Murdered Boy's MemorialPrint

Jeffrey's Memorial Statue DC Entertainment has reversed their initial decision and will now allow a Toronto family to use the Superman "S" shield on a statue dedicated to the memory of five-year-old Jeffrey Baldwin who died in 2002.

    "I was angry. My first thought was to burn every DC comic book I ever had, but after talking with them, I sort of came around to see their perspective on it more," Boyce told CBC Metro Morning’s Matt Galloway on Tuesday. "They weren't comfortable associating the character of Superman with child abuse."

    On Wednesday, DC released a statement saying that after verifying the support of appropriate family members, it is allowing the statue to feature the "S" logo.

    "We are honoured by the relationship that our fans have with our characters, and fully understand the magnitude of their passion," the company said in its statement.

    "We take each request seriously and our heartfelt thoughts go out to the victims, the family and those affected. DC Entertainment uses a flexible set of criteria when we receive worthy requests such as this, and at times have reconsidered our initial stance."

Read the full report at CBC News.

While this is indeed great news for those rallying for the statue's use of the "S" symbol, legal expert and Superman fan Jeff Trexler comments on why DC Comics may have taken their original stance in this matter. It's worth a read. As is BleedingCool.com's report on why this is a reccuring problem for DC.

July 8, 2014: No Truth to the Three Rumored Villains for "Batman v Superman"Print

Fake Script Last week Latino-Review.com posted a report claiming that they'd received inside word from a source who told them that we'd see three secondary villains in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" - Morgan Edge, Victor Zsazs and David Cain. Well Latino-Review were fooled by a fake script (not written by Kevin Smith) that has been doing the rounds.

The script, which is claimed to be written by a person known only as Arrogant Alien on Twitter, was the source of the information, which Latino-Review.com has since removed from their website.

The reported writer of the fake script has admitted it was all a joke, but has received quite a few angry threats from those he fooled. So, as far as we know, you won't see Morgan Edge, Victor Zsazs, David Cain or Amanda Waller in "Batman v Superman".


July 8, 2014: Kevin Smith Did Not Write a Fake "Batman v Superman" ScriptPrint

Dawn of Justice A few days ago MovieWeb.com reported that they'd received an email from an inside source who claimed to know that Kevin Smith had been commissioned by Warner Bros. to write a fake "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" script to throw fan sites off the scent of the real story. Today, via his own blog, Kevin Smith reveals that there's no truth to the rumor...

    There've been a few movie websites reporting I might've been involved in a BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE misinformation campaign, at the behest of Warner Brothers, director Zack Snyder and producer Chuck Roven. The idea was that everything I've ever said about the forthcoming big screen team-up of the World's Finest is a carefully constructed web of intrigue to throw movie sites off the real track.

    C'mon, kids… No major studio would let a guy like me near their franchises - even if it was for a dummy script meant solely to fool the news sites. (Don't know if it's true or not, but this Twitter user is claiming credit for a fugazi script that's currently being reviewed online.)

    No, anything I've said about "Milo and Sage" was based on an image Zack showed me while hosting a MAN OF STEEL online event at Yahoo many months back. The little I know of the flick beyond that I learned from some cats involved (though never BatFleck himself; as I've said a few times now on the Babble-On podcast, beyond email, I haven't spoken to Ben in years).

In case you're wondering, "Milo and Sage" is the codename the movie was originally working under. Read the full blog post at SilentBobSpeaks.com.

"Chaos" - Part 5

Writer: Bryan Q. Miller
Artists: Agustin Padilla and Daniel HDR
Colorist: Carrie Strachan

Reviewed by: Matt Schorr

    I guess you could call this a midpoint in the story, since very little happens. However, what does happen is important and, in one case, fairly big. It's a little disappointing compared with previous issues but still manages to be a fun read.

    The big happening I mention is the return of Hank Henshaw. If you're just joining us, Henshaw was mortally wounded and, prior to dying, his consciousness was transferred into a robot by Lex Luthor during the Guardian storyline. Outside of a quick appearance in Hollow, Henshaw's been laying pretty low at STAR Labs. This brings him back into the spotlight in a big way.

July 7, 2014: More Filming Tidbits for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice"Print

Dawn of Justice Rumor has it that the house built near Otsikita Lake at the vacant camp grounds off Caley Road near Flint, Michigan could indeed be owned by Bruce Wayne, and might be the location of the entrance to the Batcave for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice".

WNEM TV 5

Meanwhile, UofMuscle.com reports that locals in and around filming in Detroit have heard about casting going on for 60-odd speaking roles in the movie.

    This weekend I was able to find out that Batman v Superman is casting 60 speaking roles. Zack Snyder is working directly with a local casting agency. They are targeting Metro Detroit talent and some of the 60 roles have already been filled.

    The person I spoke to made it sound like they were smaller speaking roles - probably a handful of lines, at most. They weren't looking to cast Nightwing, Green Arrow, or anyone like that. There was a very strong emphasis on the look of the people being cast. The casting people were less concerned with resumes and more concerned with having the right "look."

"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" will be released to theatres on May 6, 2016.
