Voices From Krypton has relaunched with a whole new look at VoicesFromKrypton.net. Just click HERE to be brought over to the newest headlines pertaining to Superman, Man of Steel and the Justice League on Film.
No doubt for the next week or so the Internet is going to be on fire with word that Joseph Gordon-Levitt will be interested in playing Batman in Warner/DC's currently-in-development Justice League film, but watching the original source video from MTV you can see exactly how the question was posed to him.
1OneMinuteNews reports the following: "Christopher Wietrick, from Hutchinson, Kansas, wants to change the name of their sleepy little farm town to Smallville. Yes, that's the fictitious Kansas town where Clark Kent became Superman. It's cool, odd and they better rock it out to get people to flock to basically the middle of nowhere. The most important part is that it's for fun and for charity as Christopher states in his comment below... all proceeds go to the Boys and Girls Club, and that's the coolest part. Sounds like a good place. Come to think of it, this is a lot like our expectations and obsession with politics and finding our own superman. Someone who can solve the country's problems in a single four year bound! We think that a name change will do the trick, make everything new and different. Are we crazy? Maybe... but it's fun. It's why we go see a new movie about the same superhero time after time, sequel after sequel, over and over. It's the American way!"
We're not sure how long Warner Bros. will allow this to remain on YouTube, but here for your viewing pleasure is the premiere episode of the George Reeves series, The Adventures of Superman. For a couple of generations he truly was the Man of Steel.
Arrow, based on DC Comics' Green Arrow character, will be debuting on the CW October 10th, and in this video series co-star Katie Cassidy previews some footage from the premiere episode.
Vulture is reporting that a new Wonder Woman series is in the earliest stages of development at the CW, home of Smallville and this fall's Arrow. Notes the stie, "Our sources say the new take on the comic book crime fighter is being written by Allan Heinberg (Grey's Anatomy, The O.C.) under the working title Amazon. Unlike past TV incarnations, it will focus on Wonder Woman as a young, budding superhero, rather than a fully formed defender of liberty. (Think Smallville, but instead of a 'no tights, no flights' rule, this show might have a "no bracelets, no crown" mandate.) Heinberg seems a logical candidate for the job: His resume includes work on the kinds of soapy dramas the CW favors as well as comic-geek street cred (he wrote the Young Avengers comic book series back in 2005). It should be noted that CW is only developing a script at this point; no pilot production has been greenlit or even contractually guaranteed." For more, click HERE.
Whatculture.com has come up with a list of 10 things that Zack Snyder's Man of Steel must avoid from Bryan Singer's 2006 production of Superman Returns. We present itmes 6-10 of that list.
10. METROPOLIS: Superman Returns tried very hard – mostly successfully – to establish Metropolis as a city that is in every way a match for a real-life metropolis like New York City. (Something that Tim Burton famously ignored by creating a shockingly empty Gotham City for his 1989 Batman). What the movie forgets to do, is to populate this Metropolis with real people. People who react to the events around them in a believable way. That doesn’t just mean running away from a gas line exploding underneath your feet, screaming in terror, and managing to only come across as either victims or apathetic. Other than for a few newspaper articles and a nice standing ovation at a ballgame, Metropolis hardly seems to acknowledge or care that the hero of their city has returned. We have to know what it is that Superman spends his life protecting, if we’re going to be asked to care about the outcome. A hero is nothing if he has nothing worthwhile to save. Man of Steel owes us a Metropolis with some character.
