Warner Bros. is rebooting the Superman movie franchise with "Man Of Steel" due in 2013 and it looks pretty cool.
The trailer will be playing with The Hobbit and will be hitting theaters June 14th, 2013.
So Kevin Costner plays Clark Kent's dad on earth while Russell Crowe plays the father Jor-El of Kal-El aka Clark Kent/Superman.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Will Superman be cool again?
DC Comics released a teaser a week ago showing Superman & Wonder Woman hooking up on the cover of Justice League issue #12 and comic retailers are NOT happy!
Usually the teasers are released on Tuesday, the day before releases. I figured, like many, a week in advance would build up hype for the issue. I went to 2 comic book stores in Los Angeles on Monday and talked to the owners.
I asked how many people were calling ahead to reserve their copies and he said not too many. Another store said the hype was too early and people have forgotten about the hook-up already. They are worried that sales this week will not be as high as DC is projecting.
I asked if they heard about DC releasing another leak and they said there was not going to be another push for it. Even the variant cover, an alternate cover that is made in a more limited run, does not feature Superman & Wonder Woman kissing, but features Batman and Aquaman. Wouldn't it had more sense to have a variant of Clark Kent and Diana Prince kissing in the same manner?
DC relaunched all its titles which they called "The New 52" last year to much fan-fair, eliminating the marriage of Clark Kent and Lois Lane along with many other story-lines across the DC Universe. It was an attempt to make DC relevant again and at the same time, copy Marvel Comics success with what they did to the "Spider-Man" title a few years ago where his marriage to Mary Jane Watson never happened.
If the retailers concern for the early leak of the Superman/Wonder Woman will transpire to lower sales, DC Comics just lost a huge chance to remain relevant.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Expecting John Byrne-like rants in 5...4....3....
In case you haven't heard, DC Comics is relaunching all 52 of their comic books with Issue # 1's this September. That means the first ever issue of Action Comics featuring Superman since 1938. More than just a number's change, there are changes to the DC characters, namely Superman. A costume change and making him single again and not with Lois Lane.
Also, Superman's adoptive parents, Jonathan & Martha Kent are dead. It will focus more on his "Kryptonian" heritage more. Gone are his red trunks as well. It kind of looks like it is just sweats or what not without the red trunks.
As for him no longer being with Lois Lane, that is expected in a reboot. Making Superman single gives his alter ego Clark Kent more storylines, such as what Marvel Comics did with Spider-Man and his alter ego Peter Parker and his marriage to Mary Jane Watson as never happening.
DC Comics is making drastic changes to its entire line, aside from Batman. Dick Grayson took over the cowl from Bruce Wayne a couple of years ago when Bruce "died" but has not returned to the mask full-time.
The New York Post was given the cover of Action Comics #1 this morning written by Grant Morrison. It features a young Superman wearing the cape and blue jeans.-Dr.FB
