I'll start with the positives. In general, I like this introduction to the Green Lanterns, I think because it reminds me a little bit of The Last Starfighter, a beloved film gem from my childhood. Tomar Re is practically saying, "Greetings Lantern. You have been recruited by the Guardians to defend Sector 2813 against Parallax and the Manhunter armada."
(Older visitors to this sight should recognize that one.)

Warner Bros. Pictures announced today that the upcoming Zack Snyder Superman/Batman film will be titled "The Cowl and The Cape". The announcement was made today by Greg Silverman, President, Creative Development and Worldwide Production, and Sue Kroll, President, Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.
Snyder's film stars Henry Cavill, reprising his role as Superman/Clark Kent, Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince. Jesse Eisenberg will star as Lex Luthor, with Jeremy Irons as Alfred. The film also reunites "Man of Steel" stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.
The new film is written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer. Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder are producing, with Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Wesley Coller, David S. Goyer and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.
The film is set to open worldwide on May 6, 2016, and is based on Superman characters created by Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster, Batman characters created by Bob Kane, and Wonder Woman created by William Moulton Marston, appearing in comic books published by DC Entertainment.
The 15 foot bronze statue, erected in 1993, was removed via a heavy-duty crane last night in preparation for its replacement, which is expected to be in place ahead of this year's Superman Celebration in June.
The new statue, which will be five feet shorter, is expected to cost $250,000 and will be funded by supporters purchasing virtual parts of the statue's body via a website to be set up at OwnASupermanBodyPart.com.
The current brick foundation (in the shape of the Superman logo) will remain in place. Etched into the concrete block he stands upon is the motto, "Truth - Justice - The American Way".
If Superman/Batman and the third Captain America movie do indeed get released on the same date, who will make more money at the Box Office?
Looks like there's little doubt amongst fans that DC/WB's movie would easily out-sell Marvel's film at the Box Office if they do indeed end up going head-to-head with the same release date of May 6, 2016. I guess we'll have to wait and see...

Steve Niles: Kind of a nice story actually. Last October my wife and I lost our home in a flood. To help us get back on our feet, Dan DiDio and Jim Lee offered me a ton of work and the Superman story was among them. So DC was a real superhero to us.
The story itself was something I've wanted to do for a long time. Superman is primarily known for his super strength but what if he came up against a force he couldn't punch his way out of?
Q: From the title (and your usual genre of choice), I assume this is a horror story?
Niles: It's a superhero ghost story.
Q: Those two words don't usually go together, and its even more unusual for Superman. Is it difficult to bring horror into a Superman story? Or does the juxtaposition of the "bright" hero with the "dark" world actually work well?
Niles: Horror, like comedy, works best when it's a surprise, and Superman going up against a supernatural foe is a surprise, so there were a lot of unique moments to go after. Even Superman is just a little boy when he's alone in the dark. The juxtaposition actually works really well.
Plus on this one, we had Jordie Bellaire doing colors. Jordie understands that horror stories should be colored differently than superhero stories, and she really added an extra layer of creepy.

Aronofsky said he took "a few conversations" with "Man of Steel" producer Christopher Nolan and others at Warner Bros., before the job ultimately went to Snyder.
"I thought Zack was a great choice, and I loved his 'Watchmen' movie," said Aronofsky. "I thought it was great. I thought that as a fan of the comic, you couldn't hope for a better interpretation. I liked the orthodoxy of it."
"It was interesting to add the pathos that they put into the character," the "Noah" director added of how "Man of Steel" turned out. "It's a hard one to do. You look at what Christopher Reeve did, and it was perfect, because it captured that 'good old boy' thing. But to try and redo that again and bring that for a modern audience is tough in a post-'Batman' and 'Wolverine' world. It's hard to do that."
