There has been lots of smaller news items which came out last week, maybe not warranting their own whole post but worth recapitulating here.
I was thrilled when I saw this first 'official' picture of Amy Adams as Lois Lane in the upcoming Man of Steel movie. This pic was posted on desdehollywood.com. Here is the link:
I will fully admit that I am an Amy Adams fan. But even I was unsure if she was right for Lois. I saw this picture and thought that it just resonated 'Lois'. Even the brief holding of Superman's hand in the preview felt right.
My excitement for this movie is slowly building.
I absolutely love these things. One thing that is clear, for Maihack, Supergirl is filled with joy. She is always smiling, always happy, always helping. Even when Batgirl is all business, Kara is smiling.
Great stuff here.
Just after Superman #16 hit the racks, DC was offering a sneak peek at some of Kenneth Rocafort's interior art for Superman #17, the end of the H'El on Earth arc. Here is the link:
It looks to be all outer space Oracle fighting. H'El is no where to be seen. There is no denying that the art is beautiful.
And then this abomination.
The gatefold covers coming up on DC titles are going to be labeled 'WTF Certified'. Here is the announcement: http://www.comicbookresources.
Now I know that I am decades removed from being hip or cool. But doesn't the 'WTF' label seem like a desperate ploy by DC to be hip or cool. And doesn't that actually make them less hip? Move them farther away from cool? It just seems asinine.
I am going to feel like an idiot picking these books up.
