Breaking news out of H’wood today – Warner Bros. has hired Gal Gadot to play Wonder Woman in Batman vs. Superman.
It’s time for another roundup of rumors and short bits of information coming out of Tinsel Town. This week, it’s all about Fast and Furious, more movies from DC Comics and Warner Bros., Doctor Who, and drones delivering your trade paperbacks.
Call me crazy, but the news popping up left and right about the Man of Steel sequel, Batman vs. Superman, has me wondering if we are getting that smack down battle between the big two as seen in the pages of The Dark Knight Returns, or if the movie is really a disguise for the Justice League.
Warner Bros. is gearing up for the big Man of Steel release next week (November 12, 2013), and to get you even more interested in the film, they’ve released an infographic outlining things you may or may not have known about Krypton.
This week, I have a great conversation with Sterling Gates, who has been bringing many DC Comics stories and characters to life including Supergirl, a Man of Steel prequel book and, until it’s recent cancellation, Justice League’s Vibe. This interview took place before the recent news, but Sterling gives us so much good information about the character and diversity in comics that I had to share that with you. Also, Mr. Gates talks about his intriguing roommate, and the story is just in time for Halloween! Don’t miss it!
Then everything wraps up with the latest “News & Previews!”

We’ve mentioned it several times on the site and the Major Spoilers Podcast since it was announced at the San Diego Comic Con, and instead of waiting for it to air on the Cartoon Network, Warner Bros. and DC Comics has released the animated short online for all to see.
What did you think? Did it live up to the hype? Does it pay homage to the Man of Steel?
Last week I talked about the hubbub resulting from Ben Affleck being chosen to play Batman/Bruce Wayne. Since then, Marvel Studios announced that actor James Spader had been selected to play Ultron in the second Avengers film. The outrage was, shall we say, silent by comparison.
I’ve been wondering what fans would have thought if, before Warner Bros. could sign Affleck to be Batman, he had been signed by Marvel to play Ultron instead. Ultfleck instead of Batfleck! Would the screaming have been as loud? In a word, the answer is clearly: No. Why is this?
So, you may have heard something about Ben Affleck playing Batman in the next Man of Steel movie.
The fate of mankind is in the hands of one man when “Man of Steel”Ô arrives onto Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD 2-disc Special Edition, 3D Limited Collector’s Edition and Digital Download on November 12 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. In “Man of Steel,” Clark Kent is forced to confront his extraterrestrial past and embrace his hidden powers when Earth is threatened with destruction.
Can it be that San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) is over already? Yes, it is, but expect for news to continue to dribble out from the event on the Web over the next few weeks. It takes that long for some people to get around to releasing info they picked up there! (I had that problem when I was there, anyway!)
Not a whole lot of new information hitting the ‘nets yet today, but there are some cool photos drifting about. This set is celebrating 75 years of Superman with a display of many of Clark’s live action costumes at DC’s booth. Take the jump for a look.
More toys found on display for NECA today. This time it’s their 1/4 scale action figures, showing off a pair of Batmen that were seen at Toy Fair earlier this year. The other three are new for San Diego though. All five figures stand around 18 inches tall and feature unique accessories and, at least for those what need to, some cloth accessories. So take the jump to have a look at what NECA has in store.
