Jesse Eisenberg Looks Fantastic As Batman V. Superman's Lex Luthor

I had my doubts about director Zack Snyder casting the young Jesse Eisenberg as Superman's arch-villain Lex Luthor in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Iconic DC Moments, Improved With... Springs?

When you've been around as long as DC Comics, there's plenty of iconic moments in comic book history to choose from for a series of cool looking statues. But that said, I'm not entirely sure how the addition of wobbly spring-loaded bits makes them look any better. » 3/17/15 12:01am 3/17/15 12:01am

A Former Superman And Supergirl Join The New Supergirl Show

CBS's new Supergirl TV series is casting characters all over the place!

Superman May Make An Appearance In The Supergirl TV Series After All

Yeah, don't get too excited. Because this isn't connecting DC's TV universe to its cinematic universe, Henry Cavill will definitely not be showing up on TV in his Superman costume, and because the new Supergirl show has figured out a way to minimize the Man of Steel as much as possible. » 2/25/15 11:20am 2/25/15 11:20am

Look How Comically Pissed This Injustice Superman Figure Is

Whenever someone questions the logic of a film, book or TV show, it's almost inevitable someone will trot out Alan Moore's 'This is an Imaginary Story' quote from Superman #423 in response.

And TV's New Supergirl Is...

Melissa Benoist, best-known as Marley Rose on Glee and Nicole in the movie Whiplash! She's not blonde! This is easily fixed! But come to think about it, why does Supergirl have to be blonde?

Over the weekend, we had the crazy rumour (one pretty much immediately quashed) that Batman v. Superman would be split into two films. It's not to be, but let's have a bit of a thought experiment - what if we did get the split movies?
