June 7, 2016: "Injustice 2" Poster Teases Sequel Video GamePrint

Injustice 2 In 2013 game developer NetherRealm Studios released the much-hyped "Injustice: Gods Among Us" video game, which also spun off into versions for other devices, not to mention the long-running tie-in comic book series. Today an image of a poster for "Injustice 2" found its way online, indicating that a sequel video game is about to be announced.

The poster depicts Batman and The Flash confronting one another with the tagline "Every Battle Defines You" at the base of the poster.

There has been no word from Warner Bros. Interactive on the game, and there are no details available whatsoever regarding what platforms the title will be released on. Perhaps an announcement will be made during the upcoming E3 convention.

While she was dressed as Wonder Woman, Jessie Graff is actually the stuntwoman who stands in for Melissa Benoist on "Supergirl".

June 6, 2016: Superman to Appear in "Supergirl" Season 2 PremierePrint

Superman Throughout Season 1 of "Supergirl" we saw glimpses of Superman - in the distance, as a shadow or a silhouette, even a leg - but now the Man of Steel is actually going to appear in the Season 2 premiere of the TV series, with casting currently underway.

Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg released a statement on behalf of the show's producing team, which includes EPs Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler. "Greg, Ali and I are beyond thrilled to welcome Clark Kent and his slightly-more-famous alter ego to the world of 'Supergirl,'" Kreisberg said. "Superman will be appearing in the first two episodes of the new season and we cannot wait to see who next dons the red cape!"

"Supergirl" Season 2 will remain in its 8.00pm Monday timeslot, but will now air on The CW.


June 6, 2016: Dan Jurgens on Super Lex Luthor in "Action Comics #957"Print

Action Comics #957 Action Comics #957 With "Action Comics" returning to its original numbering to kick of the "Rebirth" era with issue #957, ComicBookResources.com caught up with writer Dan Jurgens to find out what we can expect from the bi-monthly comic book series, and how Lex Luthor wearing Superman's "S" shield will impact the story being told. Here's part of the interview...

It's a bit tough to swallow seeing Lex repping the Superman shield. If there were no superheroes, and specifically no Superman, would Earth have a different level of appreciation of Lex Luthor, do you think, or would he be even scarier?

When it comes to Lex Luthor wearing Superman's symbol, you have to take into account what the current DCU knows about him as opposed to what we know about him. They know him to be a member of the Justice League. We, of course, know him to be an evil murderer. The world at large does not, and that extends to the newest residents of the world, Superman and Lois.

In an issue of "Superman: Lois and Clark," I made it fairly clear that they don't trust him, and Superman even mentioned the idea that he went through Luthor's computer and files. He wasn't able to find anything incriminating, but nevertheless, they don't trust him. They just suspect that Luthor is accomplished at hiding his nefarious activities.

All of that, of course, sets up conflict between Superman and Luthor.

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

A full score couldn't be given for this final issue, much as it was enjoyed, since the utter abandonment of subplots is too blatant to ignore. Superman's return to full-time status means his days of shadow work are done, and things and people, including Hank Henshaw and the Oblivion Stone, will be placed on the wait list... if ever to be seen again. One has to wonder what was in store for Superman in regards to these plot points. The curious loss of power, and trite and hackneyed device, will probably not be explained, either, making even moreso a bromidic conveyance, that was altogether unnecessary. Farewell to the shadow work suit as well, as it's time to put away childish things, like an outfit that identifies a man who wishes to remain unseen. There was much that weighed down Superman: Lois and Clark to the point it fell out of the Top 100 comics in March, and held up the rest of the best at 100, for the month of April. Much like the all too brief Adventures of Superman, many potential readers didn't know the books existed. Those who did, we're skeptical to who or what this Superman was, and no amount of explaining could quell the confusion. More is the pity, as Superman: Lois and Clark delivered quality story telling issue after issue, and provided characterization woefully absent from today's comics, primarily in the form of Jon White, the Son of Superman.

You can't tell me that even just a little... this issue touched you in some way.

What a bizarre rush of emotions Clark must have felt, waiting essentially in a strange out of body experience, to rise from the dead.

Matrix, Steel, Eradicator and The Kid were all there when he came back and this time there is no one, except Clark's oldest friend arriving to keep a promise.

To see it happen again but this time have no way back and know that if it had been him there would have been no happy marriage with Lois and no son.

I just want to put it out there, that Superman has his trunks in this issue and in this entire series... Though the belt is different... But the trunks are there! (Just a little inside joke for the regulars on the Superman Homepage).

It is as the last 5 issues... This is a complicated and confusing read, but it's fun in a zany kind of way! Again, the downfall is mostly due to the dialogue... confusing as I've stated before, but also misleading and not properly structured... We can't blame Adams for it alone; this book has 2 editors... Surely one of them could make suggestions or explain to Adams that it's just not working in places.
