Marc Alan Fishman: Who Gates the Gatekeepers?

24 December 2016 5:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

A tip of the hat to my friend Michael Sacco-Gibson this week for the topic.

It seems we’ve finally labeled the übernerds who choose to make it their lot in life to ostracize and criticize fans who enter our pulpy realm by ways and means different from their own. Gatekeeping against those fans who found a love of comic books (the books themselves, the characters therein, or any comic-related endeavor I assume) by way of TV, movies, or perhaps cosplay.

As Michael would explain to me (and no, not mansplain), Gatekeepers are often men, who often pick on not men over their comic book bonafides. Seems without an encyclopedic knowledge of issues, storylines, writers, artists, and editing mandates at the ready, a gatekeeper will scoff — and in some reported cases deny purchase of wares based on this inability. This also extends to those fans of properties who dare say they love the character… »

The Supernatural and Smallville crossover we almost saw

4 December 2016 10:17 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mike Cecchini Dec 8, 2016

An idea for a Supernatural/Smallville crossover wasn't exactly what you might expect.

Supernatural is currently enjoying its 12th season, and there's no end in sight. Smallville, the show that arguably made the CW into the genre show haven it has since become (and perhaps helped make Supernatural possible), took its final bow at the end of its 10th season.

Now imagine, if you will, a crossover between the two shows. It's easy if you try (sorry), especially given how crossover happy the CW is with their current crop of superhero TV shows. And why shouldn't they be? They're absolutely killing it in the ratings. But a Supernatural/Smallville crossover would have come at a time when such exercises weren't necessarily a slam dunk. 

Now, keep in mind we're not talking about something as basic as the Winchester boys making a pitstop in Smallville, Kansas and teaming »

New 'Live by Night' Trailer Thinks Powerful Men Don't Have to Be Cruel

11 November 2016 4:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Update 11/11/16: A second trailer for Live By Night has hit online. Check it out at the bottom of the post. Previously: Ten years ago, Ben Affleck resuscitated his sagging movie career, first by giving a finely-tuned performance as George Reeves (also known as Superman) in Hollywoodland and then by making Gone Baby Gone, a moody mystery that was his directorial debut, the following year. While Affleck is still best known as an actor, the films he's directed since then have reflected his growing talents and ambitions. The Town showed he could handle action as well as atmospheric drama and Argo introduced a lighter touch that fit the thrills of the 1980 U.S. hostage crisis in Iran. For his next movie as a director, Affleck is rewinding the clock far deeper into the past...

How 'Doctor Strange' (and Marvel) Made Benedict Cumberbatch a Movie Star

8 November 2016 9:32 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Six months ago, you might have called Benedict Cumberbatch one of the most impressive actors of his generation, British division. You could have referred to him as an Oscar nominee; a Shakespearean thespian; a solid supporting presence in prestige films like 12 Years a Slave (to jog your memory: he was the one who was not Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt or Chiwetel Ejiofor); someone who has graced successful great-man biopics and and less-than-successful versions of the same; a sex symbol; and the third-greatest Sherlock Holmes of all time.

A More Traditional Version Of Superman Will Fly Into Supergirl Season 2

26 August 2016 2:49 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The first season of CBS’ Supergirl teased the titular character’s famous cousin Kal-El. You know him as Superman. While it had a decent run on its initial network, now that the show is joining its fellow DC series’ over on The CW, the pressure’s on to make its sophomore season even better than the first. This is part of the reason why showrunners are roping in the Kryptonian do-gooder for a much bigger role. Teen Wolf‘s Tyler Hoechlin landed the coveted part, and based on the few sneak peeks we’ve had, he looks perfect as Superman.

But how will he be fleshed out once he’s onscreen? That question was put to showrunner Andrew Kreisberg during a chat with Collider. His response certainly suggests that Hoechlin’s take on the Man of Steel will stand apart from other iterations:

Tyler Hoechlin Stands Tall As The Man Of Steel In New Supergirl Image

28 July 2016 1:40 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Warner Bros. and The CW are staging a (super) family reunion.

Ahead of Supergirl‘s return on October 10 – when the Melissa Benoist-fronted series will complete the jump from CBS to The CW, joining DC brethren Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow and The Flash – we now have our first look at Tyler Hoechlin (Teen Wolf) suited and booted as the Man of Steel.

Writing his name in the history books, Hoechlin now joins a very select roster of actors that have donned the famous cape, including George Reeves, Christopher Reeve, Dean Cain, Tom Welling, Brandon Routh and, of course, Henry Cavill, who returns next year with Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

In terms of Supergirl, it’s understood that Hoechlin and Benoist will lock horns regarding their superhuman abilities – what’s a family union without some good ol’ squabbling? – though it remains to be seen »

Noel Neill obituary

8 July 2016 9:27 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Actor considered the best Lois Lane to appear opposite Superman

There may be some argument about who was the best screen Superman, Christopher Reeve or George Reeves, or even Henry Cavill, but most agree that Noel Neill, who has died aged 95, was the best of all those who played the superhero’s love interest, Lois Lane.

Neill took the role of the Metropolis Daily Planet reporter who ran circles around Superman’s alter ego, Clark Kent, in two movie serials and 78 episodes of the hit television series, between 1948 and 1958. She pitched her portrayal somewhere between struggling career girl and screwball comedian, and was particularly effective in Lane’s battles with the fiery editor, Perry White. As Jack Larson, who played the cub reporter Jimmy Olsen in the TV show, put it, “she had this wonderful perky touch to Lois Lane, and basically she could do everything in one take”.

Noel Neill, TV's Lois Lane, dead at 95

5 July 2016 1:09 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Noel Neill, the actress who played Lois Lane for nearly 80 episodes on Adventures of Superman, died on July 3. She was 95. In a Facebook post from her friend and biographer Larry Ward, he wrote of her work as Lois on Superman, “After years of playing bit parts in bad films and great roles in forgotten films, she finally found her niche. As a teenager she knew all about the newspaper business from her father and she had also actually written for Women's Wear Daily in the late 1930s, so it was a role she believed she was born to play. And as she would admit in interviews later in life, she simply played herself.” Interestingly, this was not Neill’s first time as the intrepid reporter. She played Lois in the late 1940s in the movie-serial Superman, alongside Kirk Alyn. Curiously, however she was not the original Lois Lane on the »

Noel Neill, Superman's Lois Lane, Dead At Age 95

Noel Neill with George Reeves in "The Adventures of Superman".

 

By Lee Pfeiffer

Yet another pop culture legend of the Baby Boomer era has left us. Actress Noel Neill, who played Superman's love interest Lois Lane, has died at age 95. Neill began her career in Hollywood with bit roles in mainstream films. She was chosen to play Lois Lane, the intrepid female reporter for the Daily Planet newspaper of the fictional city Metropolis that Superman and his alter-ego Clark Kent called home. As colleagues on the newspaper, Lois and Clark were friends but it was always Superman that stole her heart. One of the more amusing aspects of the Superman legend is that Lois Lane, a top reporter, could never affirm her suspicions that Clark actually was Superman simply because his "disguise" consisted of a pair of eyeglasses. Nevertheless, the Lois Lane character was unusual for the era because »

Top Thirteen Films of Mario Bava “Movies are a magician's forge, they allow you to build a story with your hands--at least, that's what it means to me. What attracts me in movies is to be presented with a problem and be able to solve it.
