Warner Bros. recently shared the first look at Henry Cavill as Superman in the upcoming Batman v Superman, and the image was begging to be Photoshopped. Twitter user @aliarikan put a twist on the movie that undoubtedly draws inspiration from this Thor and Loki version. Yes, Batman loves Superman. Seriously, this cuddly stance makes more sense to me than the idea of the two heroes fighting against each other.

Marvel’s chief creative officer, Joe Quesada, made an appearance on Kevin Smith’s Fat Man on Batman to talk about Captain America: The Winter Soldier and while he was on the topic of movies, he shared his thoughts on Man of Steel. Quesada didn’t hold back on just how much he didn’t like the movie and the reason all comes down to its treatment of Zod:

“As a comic book fan, I wanted to love that movie so much. I wanted to love it so much, and I didn’t love it so much. Again, there are little things here and there that you could pick at and things like that, but I just think at the end of the day, Zod was the hero of the movie to me… He wanted to save his race, and Superman didn’t let him.

Zod, in this particular incarnation, struck me as not necessarily an evil man, but a man of… he had a particular… he had his orders, he had a mission. He was a zealot of sorts, but he was a zealot… again, correct me if I’m wrong… but he didn’t say, ‘I want to rebuild Krypton, and then come back and destroy this little planet. All I want is to rebuild this planet. And the only reason I’m blowing everything to bits here is because you’ve got what I want, and you’re not giving it to me. So please, give me my people, and I’ll leave.’… When Superman said Krypton had its chance, I was like, ‘Will you just f***ing kill him, Zod?’””

He also noted that they could have written around the potential problem of Zod coming back to destroy Earth:

“You could have had a better solution if you had written a better problem. So I see things like that, and I’m like, ‘Aww, man.’ It was one of some things in the movie, that I just ended up feeling disappointed in it.”

Clearly, Man of Steel was a polarizing movie. Whether you liked it or hated it, what do you make of Quesada’s complaint?

This alternate opening scene for the movie Gravity is the work of Bangalore, India filmmaker Krishna Shenoi who has changed the whole film with the addition of just one character. That character happens to be Christopher Reeve as Superman, and he handily saves Sandra Bullock. It’s all in a day’s work for the superhero, but watch to the end to see why the whole thing is all his fault in the first place.

You may never fly unless you’re in a plane, but now you can know what it’s like to fly through the sky just like Superman. The Man of Steel attaches a GoPro camera to his head and then goes about saving the day, like you do when you’re a superhero. You’ll soar over town, fight bad guys, and even help needy citizens. It’s all in a day’s work if you’re Superman and you’ll see it all from his point of view in the video after the break…

Of course, we have yet to see a Black Widow movie from Marvel—just sayin’. Whether Elektra should count is up to you.

bat delay

Warner Bros. has pushed back the release for the highly anticipated Superman vs. Batman movie to May 6, 2016—almost an entire year after the original date. Their untitled Peter Pan movie will move in to fill the void.

According to Deadline, a studio exec chimed in on the news saying “We just want to do it right and need the time”.

Disappointing, surely, but it’s probably best to take the extra time to get it right. Given all of the news surrounding the production of Star Wars Episode VII, one has to wonder whether Disney should follow the same logic.
