New Man Of Steel Trailer Coming 16 April


I’ve been hearing a lot of rummors about a new trailer for Man of Steel. Now it seemed that has gotten a date April 16, 2013 as the date when a new Man of Steel trailer will debut.

After I checked it out, 16 April does seem to be the date which the trailer will be released but I’m not sure if it will be for the masses since WB will present it to cinema owners and operators at CinemaCon. However, I’m hearing that Oblivion is set to be released on Friday, April 19, and that a Man of Steel trailer will likely be attached to that film.

World Premiere of Superman: Unbound – WonderCon 2013


Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will bookend the WonderCon weekend of March 29-31 in Anaheim with animated film adventures featuring DC Comics’ greatest heroes, first presenting the World Premiere of Superman: Unbound as Friday night’s marquee event, then capping Sunday’s programming with a screening of LEGO Batman: The Movie – DC Superheroes Unite.

Both presentations will be supported with expansive post-screening panel discussions by cast and filmmakers, autograph opportunities for fans, and interview opportunities for media in attendance.

On Friday, March 29 at 6:00 p.m., fans lucky enough to gain admission to the Anaheim Convention Center’s Arena will witness the World Premiere of Superman: Unbound, the latest DC Universe Animated Original Movie. A destructive force is devastating planets across the galaxy – with Earth next in its sights – and even Superman may not be capable of halting the destruction alone. Based on the Geoff Johns/Gary Frank 2008 DC Comics release “Superman: Brainiac,” the film’s stellar voicecast is led by Matt Bomer (White Collar) as Superman, John Noble (Fringe, The Lord of the Rings films) as Brainiac, Molly Quinn (Castle) as Supergirl and Stana Katic (Castle) as Lois Lane. Quinn will be on hand to lead the post-premiere panel discussion alongside producer/director James Tucker (Justice League, Batman: The Brave and the Bold), screenwriter Bob Goodman (Warehouse 13, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns) and eight-time Emmy Award-winning dialogue director Andrea Romano (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns). As always, the panel discussion will include exclusive prizes and some potential glimpses into future DCU animated films by moderator Gary Miereanu. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, Superman: Unbound will be released on Blu-ray, DVD, OnDemand and For Download on May 7, 2013.

Prior to the premiere, the Superman: Unbound panelists will sign WonderCon-exclusive mini-posters from 3:00-4:00 p.m. at the DC Entertainment booth.

On Sunday, March 31 at 2:00 p.m. in Room 300AB, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will present the first West Coast screening of LEGO Batman: The Movie – DC Superheroes Unite. The ultimate blend of action and humor guaranteed to entertain fanboys of all ages, LEGO Batman: The Movie – DC Superheroes Unite finds Lex Luthor taking jealousy to new heights when fellow billionaire Bruce Wayne wins the Man of the Year Award. To top Wayne’s accomplishment, Lex begins a campaign for President – and to create the atmosphere for his type of fear-based politics, he recruits the Joker to perfect a Black LEGO Destructor Ray. While wreaking havoc on Gotham, Lex successfully destroys Batman’s technology – forcing the Caped Crusader to reluctantly turn to Superman for help.

A lively panel discussion will follow the screening featuring TT Animation’s award-winning director/producer Jon Burton and renowned videogame/animation actors Troy Baker (Bioshock Infinite, Batman: Arkham City), Travis Willingham (Avengers Assemble, The Super Hero Squad Show), Christopher Smith (Mortal Combat vs. DC Universe), Charlie Schlatter (Diagnosis Murder) and Laura Bailey (The Super Hero Squad Show). Once again, special prizes will be awarded to a lucky few audience members by moderator Gary Miereanu.

New Lois Lane Picture


The Man of Steel Facebook Homepage has published this picture of Amy Adams as Lois Lane.
Is she looking for Clark Kent (in the picture) or is someone questioning here?

“The trailer’s just the tiniest, tiniest tip of the iceberg”


Man of Steel writer David S. Goyer says that even though most people were blown away by the trailer for the movie – “The trailer’s just the tiniest, tiniest tip of the iceberg.” Surprisingly, Warner Bros. has kept a tight lid on the movie, which seems to add more to the aura of the film. Goyer says that the studio is deliberately holding back and that  “[t]here’s so much of the movie that people don’t know, that hasn’t been touched upon,” he says. “The trailer’s just the tiniest, tiniest tip of the iceberg.”

“The Batman films are a lot more nihilistic; Superman has always been a story about hope,” says Goyer.

Man of Steel Statues available for Pre-Orders


The cool looking statues for Man of Steel are available for pre-order.

The statues look great, can’t wait to see the new costume on the big screen. I bought a few of the huge WETA Workshop Superman Returns statues which I think are fantastic, these make a nice companion.

A New Look at Amy Adams’ Lois Lane


The magazine Total Film has released it’s alternate covers featuring Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel and Amy Adams as Lois Lane. This is the first full look at Lois Lane, previously we’ve seen a glimpse in the trailer and a black and white photo.

Man of Steel Books and Artwork


The Man of Steel Fan Page on Facebook has some cool pictures of new official merchandise. The books caught my eyes of course not only because I’m a known bibliophile, but also because they give cool hints about the costume and the movie. Frankly, while I do think that elimination the red outerwear in the movie looks good, it does not translate into comic pictures.
