    Superman No. 17 cover illustrated by Ivan Reis, Joe Prado and Alex Sinclair. (DC Entertainment) It’s not a bird. It’s not a plane. And what writer Brian Michael Bendis really wants you to know is, it’s not a trick. Superman will reveal his secret identity to the world next month in the pages of his self-titled series from DC Comics. No more nonprescription glasses and combing back the s-curl to blend in with the society he protects. No more slouching. No more phone booths. (Well, it’s probably been a while since he’s used one of those.) But Superman is...

    Who the Hell Do They Think They Are? With William McRaven’s call to oust President Trump—maybe through impeachment, maybe through a coup—the military officer class joins the establishment in claiming a right to rule, regardless of the outcome of elections. Angelo Codevilla - October 19th, 2019 Retired Admiral William McRaven devoted the bulk of a New York Times op-ed to appropriating for himself the moral and hence political authority of generations of soldiers and sailors (pointedly, especially the female ones) who have sacrificed for America, for “the good and the right.” Then he gratuitously stated—citing no specifics, as if everyone...

    Actor Dean Cain, who played Superman in the TV series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, has been busy promoting his new movie Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer. Cain plays the detective who put abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell behind bars. The movie has run into a variety of difficulties with funding and support due to the conflict between the film's an anti-abortion message and the hostile leftist views of the Hollywood world. Dean Cain, however, is just an actor in the movie, not a representative of any socio-political message that the film may be interpreted...

    Henry Cavill is hanging up his Superman cape after five years as the superhero. And rumors are already circulating about who will take the role of the DC Comics favorite. Michael B Jordan's name has been at the top of many lists, according to Deadline, who reported movie studio Warner Bros. 'has been mulling a completely different direction with its Superman canon for some time.'

    He's been in the blue suit for five years. But Henry Cavill is reportedly hanging up his Superman cape as scheduling conflicts lead Warner Bros to rule out any future appearances for the actor as the DC Extended Universe superhero. The Hollywood Reporter write that Henry, who has played Superman in three films, can't commit to a planned cameo in Shazam! and the studio is now also reportedly putting a stop to any future appearances in the franchise.
  • 'Superman' star Margot Kidder died from 'self-inflicted drug and alcohol overdose'

    08/09/2018 8:32:44 AM PDT · by BenLurkin · 46 replies
    Kidder’s daughter, Maggie McGuane, told the AP “It’s a very unique sort of grief and pain. Knowing how many families in this state go through this, I wish that I could reach out to each one of them.” Kidder is best remembered for playing Lois Lane opposite Christopher Reeve in the Superman films. The Canadian-born actress had long been open about drug and alcohol addictions, which she said partially triggered her very public breakdown in 1996. The screen icon was equally open about her bipolar diagnosis. When speaking about her lifelong struggle with mental illness, she told the Los Angeles...

    Comic Book ^ | June 20, 2018 | Nicole Drum
    If you're a fan of comic books then you likely know Superman's story. Sent to Earth as a baby by his parents just before his home planet Krypton was destroyed, he was raised by a kind couple on a farm in Kansas and grew up to be the world's greatest hero. It's a classic tale. It also means that Superman, one of our most iconic heroes, is a refugee. That's why, for World Refugee Day, DC Comics is reminding fans of Superman's origin and urging people to "be like Superman and stand up for what's right" in a post to...

    The history of Superman is well documented throughout time in either comics, TV shows or movies. However, the history of his bloodlines has been pushed to the side just a bit, that is until the recent premiere of Krypton. In the new show on SYFY, it chronicles the life of Superman’s grandfather and great grandfather’s studies while on the planet of Krypton before Kal-El was born. While it was interesting to see the beginning of his story, what stood out the most is what may have slipped the eyes of many. While critics have bashed the pilot, there are some,...

    Deadline.com ^ | 11/17/17 | Anthony D'Alessandro
    Justice League‘s Friday, coming off a solid $13 million Thursday, is landing at the high end of its midday estimate with $38.4M, however, Warner Bros./DC’s superhero ensemble is falling well short of $100M with an industry estimate of $93.5M over three-days, quite far from tracking’s $110M-$120M projection. How dismal is this? This event movie at a reported estimated production cost of $300M was ten years in the making, and was intended to be the pinnacle for the Warner Bros./DC universe introducing new characters such as The Flash, Cyborg and Aquaman who could hold their own franchise weight with their own...

    The copy in question is rare because it is what's known as a silver print - these comics are exceedingly rare because in the 1930s, publishers would create black and white copies of the comics for artists to fill in themselves - making the copy going to auction one-of-a-kind. 'This is one of the rarest, most historically significant items we've offered,' said Stephen Fishler, founder and co-owner of ComicConnect.com. Only around 100 original copies of Action Comics #1 are estimated to be extant - they're significant because they're Superman's first appearance in comic books. In 2014, a copy of Action...

    Illinois Review ^ | October 27, 2017
    Friday, October 27, 2017 Forgotten Illinois: Metropolis D.C. Comics and the Metropolis Chamber of Commerce designated Metropolis, Illinois, as Superman’s hometown in 1972. And the Illinois General Assembly passed a resolution of its own to make the same designation. Shortly after the Illinois General Assembly designated Metropolis the official hometown of Superman in 1972, the New York Times mentioned that the city was bleeding jobs, and young people were fleeing for greener pastures. Fast-forward more than 40 years, and the problems are the same. The hope placed in a superhero is also still there.

    A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away Superman fought for "Truth, justice and the American way." No more. Now Superman stands for the killing of Americans by illegal aliens and protects them from imaginary bad white men. In the most recent issue of Action Comics, Superman comes to the rescue of a group of illegal aliens -- under attack from a white guy wearing an American flag bandana and waving around a machine gun. The man is reportedly infuriated because the illegal aliens took his job, Hollywood Reporter reports. Superman swoops in and blocks the bullets meant for...

    Superman protects undocumented immigrants from armed white supremacists in a new issue from DC Comics. This incredibly-timely story hit stores on Wednesday, September 13, one week after President Trump announced the end of DACA: the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy, which President Obama established in 2012. This immigration policy deferred deportation for some individuals who entered the USA illegally as minors and made them eligible for work permits. The striking comic book moment, which depicts DC’s iconic Man of Steel standing between a group of immigrant workers and a flurry of machine gun bullets fired by a white man...

    The moment in the book released Wednesday comes a week after President Trump ended DACA. Perhaps it is just a coincidence, but perhaps not. In the recent issue of Action Comics #987, "The Oz Effect," released Wednesday, Superman arrives in the nick of time to protect a group of undocumented immigrants from a white man sporting an American flag bandanna, wielding a machine gun, who is going to shoot them for taking his job. Superman blocks the bullets before they hit the terrified people. "Stop this!" Superman orders the gunman. "Why?!" he responds. "They ruined me! Stole from me!" Grabbing...

    SUPERMAN VERSUS THE KU KLUX KLAN WILL BE ADAPTED AS A MOVIE POSTED BY BLAIR MARNELL ON APRIL 29, 2017   Even among Superman fans, it’s a little known fact that the expression about the Man of Steel’s “never-ending battle for truth and justice” originated in The Adventures of Superman radio program, which also established Clark Kent’s alter ego as a “champion of equal rights, valiant, [and a] courageous fighter against the forces of hate and prejudice.” Superman lived up to that description on the show, and so did the people behind-the-scenes. Now, their story will be told on the big screen in an adaptation of Rick...
