CosmicBookNews.com’s Matt McGloin Gets A Mention On A Superman Podcast For The Man Of Steel

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:344:]]

Cosmic Book News Editor/Publisher Matt McGloin gets a mention on the Superman Home Page Podcast for the rumor about Bradley Cooper being cast as Lex Luthor.

Leslie from the Man Of Steel Fan Facebook Page gives Steve Younis a call and discusses all the latest news and gossip surrounding the movie.

The rumor about Bradley Cooper is the first thing discussed.

While it has come out that Cooper’s rep has denied the rumor to be true, Matt is still sticking to his guns. 

“I asked the source a few times and they insist that Cooper is cameoing as Lex,” our CBN Editor said. “I even asked if they may have mixed up the character of Lex, thinking a cameo by The Flash would work, but they stated, ‘Nope. It’s Lex.'”

As Leslie mentions, if the rumor turns out to be true — it will be pie on their faces! 😉

News about a young Lana and Clark first heard here on Cosmic Book News is mentioned as well.

Here’s the podcast:

Superman: The Man of Steel (2013): Richard Schiff Joins Cast As Dr. Hamilton

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:332:]]

The new Superman movie, the Man Of Steel is currently filming in Vancouver. We’ve recently seen a couple pics of Henry Cavill and Kevin Costner.

Now we get another cast member with Richard Schiff, as Variety reports he will play a character by the name of Dr. Hamilton.

Schiff is best known for playing in West Wing as well as appearing in Criminal Minds, and he also appeared in the short lived NBC super hero series, The Cape.

So what role will Dr. Hamilton be playing in the Zack Snyder directed reboot? Friend or foe?!

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:333:]]

Update: This has to be Professor Emil Hamilton! An apparent villain that views Superman at times to be a potential threat to the world — which fits in with the theme of the movie! However, he has also come to Big Blue’s aid such as creating the Phantom Zone projector and the Superman “robots.” Most recently, Hamilton was the villain Ruin, who targeted Clark because he thought Supes was draining the Sun dry! Thanks Wiki!

Superman: The Man of Steel (2013): Concept Artist Talks Krypton and Chest Symbol

superman man of steelPeter Rubin, the man behind the unused images of Parallax from the Green Lantern movie we recently posted, was also responsible for the new “S” symbol seen on Henry Cavill as the new Superman.

Not only that, but the artist also worked on the design for Krypton in the Zack Snyder-directed Man of Steel.

Regarding the symbol, Rubin stated he is a big fan of comics, having been influenced by the likes of Curt Swan, Neal Adams, Jim Steranko and Jack Kirby, and of course is a big fan of Big Blue.

I’m a huge Superman fan going back to childhood, and so was very, very glad to be a part of it. I got some amazing design opportunities. For one, I was asked to design the new “S” insignia, the one that Henry Cavill is wearing in all those leaked on-set photos. I’ve been drawing that in one version or another since I was four years old.

Rubin also spoke about working with Alex McDowell, the production designer on the set, and in particular on the home planet of the Kryptonians.

Well, Man of Steel comes out in 2013. I’ve left some fingerprints on that. I spent nine months working with Alex on the details of Krypton. Like I said, he’s a thinker… for him, it was all about the aesthetic and the culture of these aliens – characters that everybody thinks they already know, which made it all the more challenging. He was very particular, which drove me to work hard to try master the style he had in mind. It stretched me, and I think we did some new and interesting things, both from a visual point of view and also technologically, within the process.

Following that, Rubin mentions working with Snyder and how proud about the movie he feels.

Zack is a strong director, too, and I’m very excited by what he’s bringing to the story. What we did behind the scenes is going to have repercussions in the business, and on screen it’s going to knock people’s socks off, in my opinion.

Head on over to Film Sketchr for more from Peter Rubin.

Is Batman Featured In Superman: The Man of Steel (2013)? Okay, Not Really, But…

The super fans at the “unofficial” Man of Steel Fan FB spotted (Via The Nerdist) the following image from an earlier report back in September.

There be spoilers, so be wary!

Seems someone was walking around Chicago when the new Superman movie, the Man of Steel, was filming and came across the following sign, which reads “Metropolis Will Rise Again.” You might not be able to see, but the logos on the bottom are quite revealing.

One of them is for the “Daily Planet Reconstruction Fund!”

I suppose that means the Daily Planet might get a daily dose of Zod!

Anyway, the Batman mention above is reference to, obviously, The Dark Knight Rises (get it – Metropolis Rise), but also the official movie poster for TDKR is very similar to this upward view of Metropolis.

While Christopher Nolan is working on both films, no, I don’t think Batman will be showing up in the Man of Steel, but it would be cool!

Superman: The Man of Steel (2013): Rumor: Bradley Cooper Is Lex Luthor

bradley cooper

BRADLEY COOPER
“LIMITLESS”

We’ve been sent a tip on the new Superman movie, the Man of Steel.

Obviously we have no way to verify, so bear that in mind.

We were told after Paradise Lost bottomed out, that Bradley Cooper will appear as Lex Luthor in a cameo role in the Man of Steel.

Back in April of 2011, we were provided information that the first draft of the script held a prominent role for Luthor, one that even saw Lex forcing the Kryptonians through a Phantom Zone portal using Kryptonite in the final battle. At the end of the movie, Lex considers forcing Superman through as well, but relents.

Obviously, with all the set images released there has been no sign of Superman’s archenemy. As director Zack Snyder has gone on record stating he wants the movie to go in a different direction than the previous movies, this comes as to no surprise.

However, can there really be a Superman without Lex Luthor?

Gene Hackman portrayed Luthor in the Richard Donner classics, which even saw appearances by the first Lex from the ’50s, Lyle Talbot. Next, John Shea would take up the iconic role in ABC’s Lois & Clark TV series. From there, we would see probably the best representation of Lex Luthor by Michael Rosenbaum in Smallville. Of course, Superman Returns featured Kevin Spacey, a role more of a homage to Hackman’s.

Now we might see Bradley Cooper next in line. Cooper is the star of The Hangover movies as well as the recent sci-fi hit, Limitless. Cooper also played Face in the rebooted A-Team, and People magazine named Cooper 2011’s “Sexiest Man Alive.” Cooper’s name even came up to play Green Lantern as well as The Flash.

Does Cooper have what it takes to play opposite Superman? And will Cooper join the ranks of the aforementioned in shaving his head?
