Tweet of the Day, This Gets Them Both Right edition.

Honestly, this is how I like to see both Superman AND Batman portrayed.

Tweet of the Day, HAHAHAHAHA edition.

I mean. It’s mean, but it’s funny.  And only Superman could manage to do it.

So I was catching up on my Honest Trailers.

And this one went into a really interesting place at the end there.

I still didn’t really bond with Man of Steel, though.  Dunno why. Although the lack of proper Superman music didn’t help matters any, of course.

Was… anybody looking for a TV show set on pre-Jor-El Krypton?

I mean, this isn’t necessarily bad:

Syfy today announced it has greenlit a pilot for Krypton, the Superman prequel series set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet. Krypton will follow Superman’s grandfather — whose House of El was ostracized and shamed — as he fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos.

…but I don’t know if anybody was actually looking for something like this, ahead of time.  Certainly it never occurred to me until I saw the article. Which may be a selling point for originality, although I suppose that Gotham is demonstrating that you can get eyeballs for prequels like this. (more…)

This Luthor/Metallo Texts From Superheroes exchange explains it ALL.

This makes perfect sense to me. There’s a reason why Superman’s rogue gallery isn’t as psychopathic as Batman’s is: Lex Luthor probably has all of the really crazy ones quietly killed.  Because what happens if Superman ever decides that this ‘live like a normal human as much as possible’ thing isn’t really working for him? — Actually, you don’t need to answer that one; there are a bunch of comic story lines that explore that, usually with a lot of heat vision going off.  So, yeah, keep the Man of Steel busy cosplaying…

PS: You do have to wonder: why has nobody ever just shot the Joker in the head a few times?  I mean, I don’t condone violence, but it seems like a fairly obvious, if rather drastic, counter-Joker gambit. I suppose that Batman wouldn’t like it…

Had to have ‘the talk’ with my eldest just now.

I wasn’t expecting this quite so soon, but he just up and asked out of the blue: “Dad, who would win a fight: Batman, or Superman?”  So of course I had to explain to him Batman, son.  Because you know that Batman always has a plan, so he’s already ready to fight Superman.  And Superman’s too good a person to have a plan to fight his friend Batman. …He seems to have gotten it, so: whew.  Bullet, as they say, dodged.

The leaked Batman v. Superman trailer.

[Dammit, it was working.  Sorry you missed it.]

Definite Dark Knight Returns vibe here. Or possibly Injustice: Gods Among Us.

I have an unanswered question about Superman theme music that maddens me.

It’s basically this: this is the only correct Superman theme music. Shush: science has proved it.

We did not get this theme music for Superman Returns (which I thought was otherwise an excellent attempt to pretend that Superman III never actually happened*) of Man of Steel (which I couldn’t manage to finish).  …OK. Fine. Must be a licensing problem… (more…)
