Man of Steel 2 to feature Batman and Wonder Woman in Costume

Man of Steel 2: Batman vs. Superman, and Wonder WomanFor the first time in the history of these characters, we’ll be seeing Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman together on the big screen. And we’ll be seeing them all in costume. If there’s an image that could top seeing the Avengers together for the first time, it’s this one.

Remember that, prior to Iron Man‘s release in 2008, The Avengers and the characters that make up the team (including Captain America and Thor) were considered Marvel’s B-team by the general public. It wasn’t until Robert Downey Jr., a team up between screenwriters and comic book writers, and a risky plan, that these three characters became the household names they only were to those that managed to open a comic book. At Christmas, I was asked by a cousin who’d never seen Captain America or Avengers why Cap was a good character at all. This same cousin wouldn’t question Batman.

Zack Snyder recently spoke with Forbes about the upcoming sequel to Man of Steel, and he described some test photos that were done recently. It confirms that we’ll see all three characters in costume. It doesn’t confirm that we’ll see them all together, but it’s now a possibility.

DC Comics 52 Title Reboot – Superman Titles

It’s no secret that, beginning in September with the end of Flashpoint, DC Comics is going to be starting a total of 52 comics over at #1 including many very iconic comics.  Here, I’m going to list the ones that I find the most intriguing or that I’m going to continue to read.  We’re going to start with the Superman titles that I plan on picking up (at least for the first issue).

God Bless the Heroes.

2010 Text Update: The above image is one of the greatest images created in tribute to the heroes of 9/11.  The firefighters, the police officers, the doctors and nurses, the rescuers and the everyday men and women that gave their all to help whomever they could on that day.  Superman is a character that most people can identify, and understand who he is.  The simple statement that he makes says enough to give you goosebumps and bring a tear to your eye.  A superhero standing practically speechless, looking up at a huge poster of the common man.
