Antiquarian asks:

There used to be a publicity shot of you in Red Cap on the “media appearances” board in HQ Training Estates South East, where you filmed. They said it was the most stolen image, more so than 007. Any other unusual accolades like that?

Jack Ryder Almost Appeared In Man Of Steel

Zack Snyder and David Goyer dropped all sorts of DC Comic references and hints at future films in Man Of Steel, but it turns out one character, and potential future villain or ally, was shot down at the last minute. As usual, if you don’t want any spoilers for Man Of Steel, don’t read on.

Still here? Okay, great! Remember when Lois wants to reveal the existence of Superman and alien life but Perry White shoots it down? The blogger she takes the story to is named Woodburn (a solid reference to All The President’s Men), but David Goyer originally had a different name in mind: Jack Ryder. Check out what Goyer had to say below.

“I wanted that character to be Jack Ryder, but DC comics wouldn’t let us do it. I don’t remember the issue that stopped it from happening, I think it was a rights thing,

'Batman: Arkham City' Preview - Exploring The City Streets In Chapter 1

"Batman: Arkham Asylum" was my personal pick for the best game of 2008, so any potential glimpse at the follow-up sends pangs of enthusiasm through my core. Thankfully I got more than a glimpse at this year's Game Developer's Conference, as Rocksteady and Warner Bros. were on hand to show off the latest build of "Batman: Arkham City." It did not disappoint.

"Arkham City" takes place in a large, walled-off portion of Gotham
