    Since it hid the secret elevator, it was probably not a real tree. The "decorative foliage" was probably fake. But it looks like the kind of architectural concepts that were popular in the 1970s....

    I know that this idea that Cavill would do Hulk-like cameos in D.C. movies already went through the news cycle a couple years ago. I wonder if the news is just being run by a robot that sends out...

    I'd assume they are talking to him about doing reshoots and looping for the Snyder Cut. But I don't know how that works. For the theatrical cut that would all be in his contract for the movie--so...

    It seems to me that, unlike the other members of the Justice Society, the similarity between Earth-One and Earth-Two Superman and Batman was important for the writers at the time. Because this...

    She's an outcast because she's Chinese-American. People in that town are racist. They choose to hate her and make fun of her because of her appearance and her name. She could be the most brilliant...

    I think "the J.S.A. failed" perfectly fits the story that Levitz and Staton told where H.U.A.C. (or whatever) demanded they remove their masks and instead they disappeared. They had been trying to...

    According to Paul Levitz, when he was writing the Justice Society of America in ALL-STAR COMICS (and then ADVENTURE COMICS), Earth-Two was a better place than our Earth. They had got rid of apartheid...

    SMALLVILLE was filmed in British Columbia, west of the Rocky Mountains, SUPERMAN (1978) was filmed partly in Alberta, east of the Rockies. SUPERMAN III was also filmed in Alberta, in pretty much the...

    Back when D.C. was still doing their Archives series, I despaired of ever getting Superman material from what I called the Lost Decade (1948 - 1957). One of the hurdles to doing the Archives is that...

    STRANGE DAYS (1995), directed by Kathryn Bigelow. I was going crazy trying to figure out who the lead was, because he looked exactly like Bradley Cooper to me. It was a good twenty minutes before I...

    It depends what you mean by draft. My understanding is that men enlisted in the U.S., but the draft board then selected from that pool for where and when they would go. Or do you mean that Clark...

    I guess the comic book came after, but if I could I'd give the award to the cast of WALT DISNEY'S ZORRO.

    Writers are good at turning a phrase, which can sound good to us, even if it actually has no meaning. Oscar Wilde was very good at this and would often invert a saying, so it had as much a ring of...

    After the Crisis in 1986, the publisher insisted there was only one universe and one timeline. Yet immediately after the D.C.U. was created the continuity kept shifting. Some of this was explained as...
