    After months of speculation it looks as if Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice has found its Aquaman. On Monday HitFix reported former Game Of Thrones star Jason Momoa will be slipping on a green and orange bodysuit to play the aquatic superhero that, when not battling villains, goes by Arthur Curry. '[Director] Zack Snyder has already finalized his design for the character so shooting can take place soon,' the site claimed.

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | June 8, 2014 | Chuck Dixon And Paul Rivoche
    In the 900th issue of Action Comics, Superman decides to go before the United Nations and renounce his U.S. citizenship. " 'Truth, justice and the American way'—it's not enough any more," he despairs. That issue, published in April 2011, is perhaps the most dramatic example of modern comics' descent into political correctness, moral ambiguity and leftist ideology. We are comic-book artists and comics are our passion. But more important they've inspired and shaped many millions of young Americans. Our fear is that today's young comic-book readers are being ill-served by a medium that often presents heroes as morally compromised or...

    Hollywood was an invention meant to help Jews “take over” America, according to Hezbollah’s television channel. Al-Manar TV, in a report, titled “Jews, Movies, Hollywoodism, and the American Dream”, claimed Hollywood was a Jewish invention, the goals of which were “to take over the greatest superpower in the world, to control all aspects of its daily life, and to harness it in the service of Jewish goals worldwide.” Superman, invented by “the Jews”, is part of this plan as well, according to the Hezbollah report. …

DC Entertainment The climactic battle in Man of Steel proved to be particularly divisive for many longtime comic book fans, with some going as far as to say that the Superman on show in Zack Snyder and David Goyer's movie wasn't the real thing because of certain choices the character made that the comic book incarnation would find some way to avoid. In a comic released Wednesday, DC Entertainment appears to have...

    As we walked into the Man Of Steel movie, my wife and I ran into two groups of friends who had just seen the movie and were leaving the theater. One group was Christian, the other group was not. Our Christian friends agreed with what we had heard, that there were several Christian themes and images in the movie. Our non-Christian friends told us that they had not noticed any Christian messages at all. This fits the definition of a dog whistle, a message broadcast to all but heard only by certain ears. And we Christians are the dogs. But...

    Conservatives have embraced Man of Steel, and rightly so, turning it into a cash cow for Warner Bros. The film is open about its religious aspects and has the kind of conservative leanings that we haven't seen in major blockbusters since The Dark Knight Trilogy. With a sequel already greenlit, reporters are asking the filmmakers for any and all details about their future plans. Conservatives that have embraced the patriotic origin story may be a little disappointed in what director Zack Snyder had to say about the film's patriotism and his plans for the sequel. When asked by BBC Radio...

    The Gospel According to ‘Man of Steel’ By Kevin Williamson Superman is an object of dispute — at least comic-book-nerd dispute — between Judaism and Christianity. One camp sees Superman as Moses in tights: an infant sent away by his parents to avoid certain death, discovered by members of an alien culture who adopt him as their own, who eventually discovers his true identity, whose characteristic activity is delivering his people to safety. They note that Superman was created by Jewish artists (writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster) at a time of Jewish crisis (1933), and that as an...

    The "mixed" reviews surrounding the debut of the new motion picture franchise "Man Of Steel" are both amusing and disgusting. The film is without question the greatest Super Hero film of the modern era, maybe of all time. The story line is all heart, the special effects are more seamless than anything in recent memory. In this epic you constantly find yourself caught up in this heart wrenching story about a kid, who while struggling to figure out who he is in narrative flashbacks, simultaneously sees the evidence of good and evil all around him, and knows he must somehow...

    It’s a bird. It’s a plane. No, it’s … Jesus? When Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster created their iconic comic book hero Superman in 1938, their character wasn’t just a representation of “Truth, Justice and the American Way,” but for many, a metaphor for Jewish immigrants in 1930s America. Created by two young Jewish men, Superman was an allusion to the Jewish faith and history, from his baby Moses-like origins to his golem-esque invincibility, to his outcast status and his ultimate struggle to assimilate in a new land. But somewhere along his journey since 1938, Kal-El converted to Christianity, which...

"Superman is an American. Like Superman, we are the American way," the site's sub-head reads. Born on Krypton, he came to this country with the promise of Hope - the symbol he bears on his chest.

Even though the two men come from, literally, entirely different worlds.But according to Goyer, this incarnation of Superman (Henry Cavill) isn’t going to be trading realism for fantasy, or hard questions for special effects. In fact, Man of Steel isn’t being approached as a comic book movie at all. While Marvel may have found success developing comic books into movies without removing...

    A year ago, in Action Comics, Superman declared plans to renounce his U.S. citizenship. "'Truth, justice, and the American way' — it's not enough anymore," the comic book superhero said, after both the Iranian and American governments criticized him for joining a peaceful anti-government protest in Tehran. Last year, almost 1,800 people followed Superman's lead, renouncing their U.S. citizenship or handing in their Green Cards. That's a record number since the Internal Revenue Service began publishing a list of those who renounced in 1998. It's also almost eight times more than the number of citizens who renounced in 2008, and...

    Randi Weingarten, President of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), the AFL-CIO's educational (strong) arm, announced the group's endorsement of the Obama-Biden ticket in 2012.

    Back in 1938, Action Comics #1 introduced a new superhero to the world when it featured for the first time, the Adventures of Superman. In those days, Superman didn't have all the powers and abilities that are attributed to him today. In 1938, Superman was "faster than speeding bullet" but by the late 1950's he was able to travel faster than the speed of light, making him capable of time travel. In 1938 Superman was "more powerful than a locomotive." By the 1960's Superman was capable of moving a planet off its axis. In 1938, Superman was able to "leap...

    I wonder which way the copy editor meant this headline to be read: “President as Pińata.” Does the copy editor mean his detractors take sticks to beat the president, or that we should expect a president to shower his supporters with gifts? In President Obama’s both meanings apply. All presidents are smacked around unfairly by critics; remember how the New York Times made up some cockamamie story about President Bush serving a fake turkey to troops in war-torn Iraq on Thanksgiving 2003? The New York Times finally corrected that mistake on July 11, 2004.
  • An insult? No, this shows why Maggie was so mighty (Streep differs with, respects Thatcher greatly)

    Many feared the worst when they heard Meryl Streep was to play Margaret Thatcher in a new film. Not only was Baroness Thatcher to be cast as a rather befuddled, elderly woman looking back on the triumphs and disappointments of her life, but Streep is also of a very different political hue from Maggie. It was commonly agreed that our greatest Prime Minister since Churchill would be vilified. Such fears are misplaced. Having just seen the film in a London preview before its release in January, and then having spoken at length to Meryl Streep about her role in The...
