Batman vs. Superman Gets Official Title – Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice

Now, Warner Bros has finally come through and announced an official title to Zack Snyder’s DC superhero extravaganza. The title? Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Superman Retrospective ’86 – ’99 pt. 1

Maxwell Yezpitelok's Superman Retrospective '86 - '99

I’m more of a comics guy than a cartoon guy, but it turns out that a lot of comic book characters also have cartoon shows, so it kind of fits. This is going to be a thorough chronological examination of the best/worst period in Batman’s history, but I saw that Toonbarn already has way too much real estate devoted to the bats and it turns out that I had a more extensive library of Superman’s comic books from ’86 – ’99. Thus begins my in-depth examination of every single Superman continuity comic between 1986 and 1999 (even the ones that really suck).

Man of Steel Sequel to Film in Michigan in Early 2014


The Internet has had its fill of announcements regarding the upcoming sequel to Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, which is said to be a Batman vs. Superman movie. We’ve received news over the tone of the film (Bats and Supes aren’t going to start out as best friends), the cast (Ben Affleck will play Batman), and now it’s been announced that principal filming will start in 2014, in Michigan.

The news came from the Detroit Free Press, which reported that the production will net around $35 million in tax incentives to shoot in and around the city, as well as other locations in the state. Certainly something that will help the currently financially-troubled state.

One of the main reasons why nobody expected a World’s Finest movie is because they have no one to play the Batman yet, as Christian Bale’s version is still fresh in people’s minds, and the actor has firmly declined to reprise the role.
