The New Man Of Steel Trailer Is Here

Man Of Steel which is due out on June 14th is suppose to set the scene for future DC Comics movies.  So far I’ve enjoyed what I’ve seen in all of these trailers.  In this new one, we get to see a glimpse at his heat vision.  The rumor around town is that Wayne Enterprises, Batman, and other DC Comics characters could be referenced in this movie.  I’m really looking forward to this one as DC has a lot of catching up to do when compared to Marvel.

“Pin-Up” of the Week: The Avengers – Iron Man Disney Soda Fountain L.E. Pin

Right next door to the El Capitan Theater in Los Angelas you’ll find the Disney Soda Fountain & Studio Store.  One of the major events that fans look forward to are the new pin releases that draw a lot of people.  This pin, along with four others, were sold last year to celebrate the release of The Avengers.  It is modeled after the 1968 #47 comic book and is limited to only 300 pins.  They sell for $20.00 to $30.00.  On May 11, 2013 the Disney Soda Fountain & Studio Store will be selling six different pins to commemorate Iron Man 3.  This pin set has been pre-selling for crazy prices.

The 2013 summer movie season has officially begun.  Today I saw Iron Man 3 and really enjoyed it.  You get to see Tony Stark battle a lot of demons after the events that took place during The Avengers.  He has been building one type of armor after another while thinking of different situations that they could be used for.  In the final battle we get to see all of these armors fighting together.

The Mark 39 Sub Orbital Suit “Gemini” is the only armor that I don’t remember actually seeing in the movie, yet they let us know it exists.  It would also be the only one Stark didn’t destroy.  Perhaps they’re saving it for when he goes to meet the Guardians of the Galaxy.  I love these movies and I hope Robert Downey Jr comes back to play Tony Stark.  I really can’t see anyone else playing that character.

Watch The Man Of Steel Trailer #3

We are only a few weeks away from the summer superhero movie kick off.  It all starts with Iron Man 3 on May 3rd.  This morning I awoke to see the third trailer for Man Of Steel which hits theaters June 14th.  Of all the superhero movies coming out this year, I think I’m looking forward to this one the most.  I’m a huge fan of everything that Marvel is doing, but when I was younger my first introduction to the world of superheros began with the DC Comics characters.  Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy was very well done and with him behind this movie I’m excited to see how they plan to set the tone for future DC Comics films.

The word around town is that this new Superman will be a little different from previous ones we have seen on the big screen before.  I’ve heard that kryptonite isn’t even in the film.  There have been thousands of rumors and talk of a Justice League movie in the works, but that project has just had one problem after another.  One rumor that sparked my interest was that Christian Bale’s Batman would make a return somehow, but that was quickly shutdown.

I’d like nothing more than to see Bale’s Batman show up in a post credit scene of the Man Of Steel.  I could see Batman standing in the shadows while reaching into his belt to unveil a small piece of kryptonite to Superman while saying “It doesn’t take much.”
