This is the difference between being young, bright-eyed, idealistic, and old, fat, and cynical. When I was a youngin’, the Reign of Supermen was fucking awesome. If it happened now, I’d spit on the ground and curse the Powers That Be like a loser. Sean Murphy’s recently revealed cover is able to temporarily recuperate my broken spirit. Calling me back to the olden days.
Action Comics #15 cover design? Mad money! By God there’s gold in them there comic book boxes! Provided, you know. That you’re a ding-dong of the highest order and you’re keeping comic books from 1939 in a regular old comic box. Right?
It’s been rumored! Announced! Confirmed. John Romita Jr. and Geoff Johns will be the creative team on Superman. This does absolutely nothing for me, and in fact the presence of Johns’ means I’m actively disinterested. Does this mean I’ll skip their debut issue? Of course not. Well played, DC. You clever fuckers.
Here is your moment of life-affirming zen. Just Idris Elba, ostensibly the coolest dude in the world, hanging out as Superman. Spinning some vinyl. Shitting on all of our lives. Shout out to The Mary Sue for the find.
It appears that DC is inching closer (if they haven’t closed the case already) towards completely subsuming the Superman rights into their bulging corpus. Latest in a long line of appeals and whatever stuff has ruled in favor of The Man.
How the fuck did I miss (or forget?) that there was a documentary being made about Tim Burton’s failed Superman project? Too much to contain within the rotting mush between my ears. Anyhoo — the trailer for the documentary has arrived (from Krypton? LOLIHATEMYSELF), and it looks pretty fucking awesome.
I love Ben Affleck. I hate this casting. You?
Whether you enjoyed Man of Steel or not, one thing is evident. Zod and Kal-El beat the living shit out of Metropolis. Obviously though, right? I mean how else to evoke 9/11 Imagery without some uttered destruction? Kyler Baker has issued a browser game turned film critique that allows you to bash in the Super City yourself.
This has to be good news regarding the initial buzz surrounding Man of Steel. Despite not dropping for a few more days, the son of a bitch is already in line for a sequel.
DC has got itself a logo for Super-guy’s 75th anniversary. The logo itself isn’t really wonderful, but hey. At least it isn’t so garish that it makes my eyes bleed.
