File this one under “interesting concept”.

According to Syfy, Krypton “will follow Superman’s grandfather – whose House of El was ostracized and shamed – as he fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos.”

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice co-writer David S. Goyer will executive produce Krypton under his Phantom Four banner. Goyer also wrote the pilot alongside Ian Goldberg, who previously worked as a producer on Once Upon a Time and a writer on Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

Krypton will take place 200 years before the opening of Man of Steel. He went on to say while “it won’t be wall-to-wall visual effects every single moment” like Man of Steel, the show will “be digging into the characters and culture a lot more.

Cameron Cuffe as Seg-El: Superman’s grandfather and Jor-El’s father; athletic, quietly confident, and in his 20s. A younger version of the “grumpier” character from the comics.

Georgina Campbell as Lyta Zod: A reluctant cadet and warrior in the Kryptonian military, in a clandestine, forbidden relationship with Seg-El.

Ian McElhinney as Val-El: Seg’s grandfather, who defied death by going to the Phantom Zone and is a staunch believer in space exploration.[2][5]

Elliot Cowan as Daron-Vex: The chief magistrate of Kandor, charged with defending Krypton’s oligarchy.

Ann Ogbomo as Alura Zod: The Primus of the Kryptonian military guild and mother of Lyta. Alura shares her first name with Alura Zor-El, the mother of Supergirl.

Rasmus Hardiker as Kem: An engineer and Seg’s best friend.

Wallis Day as Nyssa-Vex: A junior magistrate and the daughter of Daron-Vex.

Aaron Pierre as Dev-Em: A “chiseled, twenty-something bad boy”.

Review: Supergirl #2

Graphic Policy

supergirl2fiSupergirl #2 has all the ingredients of an intriguing teen superhero comic: twisted family drama, killer robots, punching, and of course, adolescent awkwardness. Writer Steve Orlando, artist Brian Ching, and colorist Michael Atiyeh give Supergirl quite the hard time as various men in her life keep telling her what’s best for her from Cyborg Superman saying that he’s her dad Zor-El to her classmate, Ben Rubel, interrupting her and getting a spot as one of Cat Grant’s Young Innovators. In light of a male presidential candidate interrupting a female presidential candidate multiple times and still complaining about not having equal time, the events of Supergirl #2 are very relevant as Orlando simultaneously explores the tragedy of Krypton’s destruction and the cutthroat world of new media.

Speaking of media, Orlando and Ching’s take on Cat Grant is fantastic as they start to build her arc as a journalist who wants to…

That final Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer though!!!! (Edit:Wait! Darkseid??????) *see pics*

Who’s coming with me to see this day one?!?!?!?

EDIT: I was screen capping the trailer for a separate post and lo and behold on one of the caps what do I see?  The Greek symbol or Omega on the cap where Batman is standing on the mountainside.  We know that Darkseid shoots his Omega beams out of his eyes, so is Bats on Apokolips? Or is this still the Knightmare dream sequence? Take a look at all the screen caps and  tell me what you think!

DC vs. Marvel: Superman vs. The Hulk

dcvsmarvel_03_28dcvsmarvel_03_29dcvsmarvel_03_30dcvsmarvel_03_31

DC vs. Marvel Comics (issues #2–3 titled Marvel Comics vs. DC) was a comic book limited series crossover published by DC Comics (Detective Comics) and Marvel Comics from April to May 1996. The series was written by Ron Marz and Peter David, with art by Dan Jurgens and Claudio Castellini.

Two godly brothers who personify the DC and Marvel Universes become aware of the other’s existence, and challenge one another to a series of duels involving each universe’s respective superheroes. The losing universe would cease to exist. The story had an “out of universe” component in that, although there were eleven primary battles, five outcomes were determined by fan vote.

The six preliminary battles were:

  1. Aquaman (DC) vs. Namor (Marvel).
  2. Elektra (Marvel) vs. Catwoman (DC).
  3. Flash (DC) vs. Quicksilver (Marvel).
  4. Robin (DC) vs. Jubilee (Marvel).
  5. Silver Surfer (Marvel) vs. Green Lantern (DC).
  6. Thor (Marvel) vs. Captain Marvel (DC).

There were five battles in which the outcomes were determined by the votes of fans:

  1. Superman (DC) vs. Hulk (Marvel).
  2. Spider-Man (Marvel) vs. Superboy (DC).
  3. Batman (DC) vs. Captain America (Marvel).
  4. Wolverine (Marvel) vs. Lobo (DC).
  5. Wonder Woman (DC) vs. Storm.

Each side attained three victories in the preliminary battles and five battles were decided by fan vote, of which Marvel came out ahead with 3 wins to DC’s 2.

However, the storyline does not show one side as being victorious. As part of a last-ditch effort to save their worlds, the Spectre and the Living Tribunal were able to briefly force the “brothers” to resolve the situation by temporarily creating a new universe, called the Amalgam Universe, which is occupied by merged versions of many of the heroes (such as Dark Claw, a merging of the characters Batman and Wolverine).

An inter-dimensional character called Access eventually managed to restore the universes to their normal state with the aid of Batman and Captain America. The presence of the two heroes (essentially serving as the brothers in miniature, each being unique among their peers) forced the brothers to recognize how petty their disagreement truly was.

Amazing re-edit of the Batman V Superman trailer

I was cruising YouTube and came across this awesome re-cut/re-edit of the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer.  It combines all of the teasers and trailers that have been released so far and manages to keep some secrets.

Batman vs. Superman

Thoughts on the NEW “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” Trailer

 

It seems that this trailer has divided the internet once again.  Some folks don’t like Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, saying that his attitude is a little to flippant and voice a little too annoying.  I totally get that, I don’t really care for his voice too much either.  Especially after growing up on Gene Hackman as Lex in the 70’s/early/late 80’s and Clancy Brown III in the 90’s-2000’s.

 

Others are saying that they gave away the entire movie by showing Doomsday and B,S & W becoming the Super-Friends to do battle together.

On one hand I can agree that WB may have blown their wad just a tiny bit, especially after the stellar trailers of Captain America: Civil War and Star Wars: The Force Awakens last week.  It’s kind of true, this trailer does reek of desperation, however keep in mind my fellow fanboys and fangirls that this is only 170 seconds of disjointed images set to music.  You want to see a trailer that gave away the whole movie? Take a look here.

We still need to see more of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex.  We don’t know why or how he becomes bald yet or if he is bald from the beginning and that is just one bad merkin stuck to the top of his dome.  Perhaps he will have a character altering moment that will add a sinister layer to his character.  We just don’t know yet.

In the few seconds we see of Doomsday, he does look like a little like a Ninja Turtle.  I think he looks more like The Abomination from The Incredible Hulk. 

 

abomination doomsday

See for yourself.

 
I am still holding on to hope that there is much, much more to this movie than a poorly edited one hour finale of punching, kicking, flying, splosions and crumbling buildings.  I am holding on to hope that Zack Snyder hired a better editor after Man of Steel.  I am holding on to hope that Zack Snyder actually put a coherent narrative into this movie and not just trivial drivel that serves as a place holder before the next face punch.

Please, Zack Snyder.

“That’s really super, Supergirl”

My Heart Explodes

I am very excited for this! My comic book nerd friends – not so much. Well, that’s only because, apparently, they don’t like girls. They’d much rather watch Superman. Or Batman. Or Iron Man. Or Captain America… man. I’d rather watch girls. Really super girls, in fact. Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El/Kara Danvers, Mehcad Brooks as Jimmy Olsen, Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant, David Harewood as Hank Henshaw, and the lovely Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers. It kind of looks like Smallvillemeets The Devil Wears Prada.

Chyler Leigh, by the way, played punk rocker June Tuesday (here) on the short-lived Fox TV series That ’80s Show (2002). I didn’t like that show much, but I loved that character a lot. The first time I saw Leigh as Dr. Lexie Grey on Grey’s Anatomy, I said, “Hey, that’s June Tuesday!”

Anyway, Supergirl premieres…

Lex Luthor is a Jerk to California

Henchman-4-Hire

A genius known only as Nick Acosta spliced together footage from the original Superman movie with the trailer for the upcoming San Andreas movie. They go together flawlessly – at least if you hold this video to the standards of 1978 special effects. I think I actually liked this trailer more than I liked all of Man of Steel.
