Sci-fi news roundup

Here are a few Science Fiction/Fantasy tidbits I picked up on the smoke-signal network recently.

Like a ship wandering through the seas of Hollywood, it looked like Narnia sequel The Voyage of the Dawn Treader was going to be lost as Disney debated dropping the property after The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and Prince Caspian didn’t do quite as well as they’d hoped. Well, apparently they’ve been steered to the correct port, because . . . → Read More: Sci-fi news roundup

Review: Superman: Doomsday

I read somewhere recently that comic books do superhero fights better than movies because things happen too fast in the movies. I understand where that’s coming from, but I’m not sure I buy it completely. Spider-man’s fights were pretty cool in the movies (especially vs. Doc Ock), for example.

Superman: Doomsday, being the animated version of the “Death of Superman” comic book series, had the perfect chance to prove that sentiment wrong. It was a . . . → Read More: Review: Superman: Doomsday

Superman returns… again

Orci & Kurtzman Tackle Man of Steel – Slice of SciFi

Bryan Singer is in talks with writers for the next Superman movie, “The Man of Steel”. Unfortunately, we have to wait until after the Justice League of America makes its box-office run, but I’m excited to see the Superman Returns crew back at it. Singer has stuck to his previous promise of upping the action in this outing.

Lex Luthor teases Smallville’s final season

Michael Rosenbaum Talks Smallville — A JewReview.net Exclusive – Slice of Scifi

Michael Rosenbaum, Lex Luthor on Smallville, gave an interview that reveals that next year’s seventh season will be his final season, and probably the final season for the show. He also gives a vague tease for the rest of this season, and the seventh:

Review: Superman Returns

Superman is back.

Lex Luthor is back, too.

It’s really good.

But is it a triumph?

First, a little explanation: This movie is a sequel/restart. Back in the seventies and eighties, Christopher Reeve (who for many is Superman) starred in four Superman movies. The first, his origin and first meeting with Lex Luthor, and the second, his battle with three Kryptonian escaped convicts, were the only two well-received movies in the series. The current movie . . . → Read More: Review: Superman Returns

Review: Justice League

(Originally posted Jul 31, 2005 on my older blog)

I’ve been watching Justice League and Justice League Unlimited lately. This is good stuff.

Mike got me hooked. I’d caught it while flipping channels from time to time, but never really followed it well, and certainly never knew the episode order. Now I’ve seen all four seasons in order and … wow.

This Justice League is way beyond any previous incarnation. (Actually I suppose I . . . → Read More: Review: Justice League
