Biz Break Superhero Edition: I Know All Your Moves, Your Crime-Fighting Style, Favorite Catchphrases, Everything!

By Jodi Clager | Trade News | January 11, 2013 | Comments ()


I'm starting to think that Man Of Steel is going to be 2 and a half hours of Superman in handcuffs. Have there been pictures released, besides the poster, that have Henry Cavill doing anything other than being escorted down a hall in handcuffs? Well, have another!


Wow! Look at that! I retract my statement about Superman being boring! I also have another picture from The Wolverine to share with you today. You will never believe it, but Logan is looking pissed off in this one!


Wow. Wow. It looks so different from the previous Wolverine movie. He isn't wearing a leather jacket! Rounding out the superhero trio of promotional pictures is Iron Man. He's hugging Pepper Potts. So.


Man Of Steel hits theaters June 14th, The Wolverine July 26th, and Iron Man 3 gets to yell "FIRST!!111!!" on May 3rd. Also, before you all start yelling at me in the comments, I kid because I love. I'll be seeing all three movies, but it's possible it will be at home and not in theaters.

Continuing the superhero theme, Anthony Mackie talked to MTV about his role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

ABC's Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D sound better and better with every tidbit they release. It looks like Joss Whedon will be writing more than just the pilot episode. He's working on the entire series. This bodes well for the series in my eyes and promises that some people are going to be killed. Is this good news for the series? I would think The Avengers proved that Whedon can write the Marvel universe well and ABC isn't FOX, so we may get a full run of the series. Thoughts?

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    Superman looks like he's being led to do his floor routine at the next Olympics.

  • Green Lantern

    Pinky -

    1) My head will burst if you actually watch "Man of Steel", Kryptonian-ist!

    2) You do NOT know all of my catch-phrases. "Bickity Bam"!

  • Pinky McLadybits

    Oh, I'll watch it! I'll watch it and I'll see how it goes!

  • Green Lantern

    Fine, then. Know this, and let all of Pajibaville heed my words...

    I do not want "Man of Steel" to be a "good" Superman film.

    I want it to be a GREAT Superman film.

    In fact, I think we deserve no less than a GREAT Superman movie. I was firmly in the positive camp for "Superman Returns", and I thought it was good...but it was obviously not good enough to propel the Kid from Krypton back to the top of superheroic fandom where I believe he belongs. The Batman and Marvel films have taken a lot of luster off Superman in recent years, and I think it's a shame.

    I remember 1978, when "Superman: The Movie" came out and Kal-El was an important cultural icon. It's time for that again, "Man of Steel". Don't let us down.

  • Pinky McLadybits

    I hope it is good! I quite like Henry Cavill and Supes has been done right in animated features. Hell, even I like him in some of the DC animation. It seems like the movies are either super cheesy (like some of the sequels back in the day), focus on the wrong thing (Superman Returns), or the rumor floats about gritty being added to the mix.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Hugh Jackman's belly button is freaking me out. He's so jacked up that it looks like the roll of latex at the top of a prophylactic.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Supes is just on his way to my bedroom, that's all.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    (the handcuffs are to make sure he's not as boring as Jodi fears)

  • BWeaves

    RE: Superman in handcuffs. Following scene.

    Superman put in cell.
    Superman takes off handcuffs like melted butter.
    Superman looks through walls to see if anyone is coming.
    Superman busts through wall or window and flies away.
    Clark Kent shows up with his press pass and asks to interview Superman.

  • Green Lantern


    "What? Broke out? But I was told he was just here! (heh, heh...)"

  • BWeaves

    Iron Man is NOT hugging Pepper Pots. His arms are definitely in the "It's not you, it's me" position, while she tries to superglue herself to his metal codpiece.

  • Groundloop

    Is it just me, or do the epaulets on the new Iron Man armor make him look like a (slightly) flamboyant drum major?

  • Brown

    "I would think The Avengers proved that Whedon can write the Marvel universe well"

    I'm pretty sure he already proved that with Astonishing X-Men.

  • Enrique del Castillo

    But then he lost it with his work on Runaways (and got it again with Avengers, so I guess we are Ok for now)

  • Afferbeck

    I was going to comment exactly this

  • Pinky McLadybits

    Agreed. But how many people have read his run?

  • Fredo

    I'm afraid of the high expectations that Marvel + Whedon could have for the Avengers' series. Just look at how Last Resort didn't get to play out.

  • marigi

    Yeah but Last Resort was pretty bad. I watched it, but in hindsight I realize that it could not have lasted. It's the same fate for many shows with a big, complicated initial premise (especially since Lost ended).Also, they tend to have a really poor environment (the island in LR, the village in that Dinosaur series), making the series really suck.
