Jerry Seinfeld gives his opinion on “Man of Steel”

Jerry Seinfeld, undoubtedly the most well-known Superman fan, gave his opinion of Man of Steel to an open panel on Reddit.4923178595_0d90c4e9cd_o As you may know, every episode of the Seinfeld series had included a reference to Superman.

Overall, Seinfeld wasn't big on all the violence in the movie.

I was so happy that they made another Superman movie! I'm really reluctant to be critical of it in any way. But I thought the glossing over of the figuring out a secret identity and why he felt he needed one was a huge missed opportunity for that character, and one of the most interesting things about Superman is the whole secret identity. So to me it was too much action / violence and not enough character study.

Seinfeld also offers what Superman memorabillia/comics he has in his personal collection.

I have a few old Supermans with the Curt Swan art from the 60's. But nothing impressive. I have a really nice model of Kal-El being loaded into the rocket and then another model of the rocket landing in from of Ma and Pa Kent. Those are my best Superman collectibles.

And regarding Seinfeld's favorite supporting actor? It's Newman! Newman is the villain to Seinfeld much like Luthor to Superman!

Newman would be my favorite supporting character. I mean, when I got to have a real evil nemesis like Superman would have, that was a dream come true for me. There's no superhero that doesn't have an evil nemesis, and I got to have one. And I love that nobody ever asks "Why didn't you like Newman?"

No one ever asks me that, and no one ever questions it. There was no reason, but it was just fun.

First Peek at “Justice League: War” Arriving February 4th

The clip features Batman and Green Lantern meeting for the first time while simultaneously dealing with both a renegade parademon and the local police. Jason O'Mara (Terra Nova) and Justin Kirk (Weeds) provide the voices of Batman and Green Lantern, respectively.

When the powerful Darkseid and his massive, relentless forces invade Earth, a group of previously unaligned super heroes — misunderstood and, in some cases, hunted by the authorities — discover the only way to fend off the attack will be to work together as a cohesive unit. Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, Shazam and, in his origin story, Cyborg combine their respective talents in an all-out battle to save the planet. Based on the 2012 graphic novel, "Justice League: Origin," by Geoff Johns & Jim Lee, Justice League: War provides a glance into the world before the Justice League was created, and offers the initial animated incarnation of DC Entertainment's "The New 52."

"Justice League: War" arrives via Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and Digitial HD on February 4, 2014 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

DC Entertainment has revealed that actor Tyler Hoechlin (Teen Wolf) may be in contention for the highly coveted role opposite Henry Cavill, who will be returning in his second outing as the Man of Steel. Here's an excerpt from the article:

Regarding the new Batman, Tyler Hoechlin (Teen Wolf, Lincoln Heights, 7th Heaven, Road To Perdition) is being heavily considered for the part and will be getting a screen test alongside Henry Cavill. Warner Bros. and Snyder are looking at somebody to play the new Batman with a reputation similar to Cavill's, when Cavill was testing for Superman. It's also said that better known actors could also be testing for the role. As filming is expected to begin in early 2014, screen tests should be happening soon.

The article goes on to reveal the following plot outline for the new film:

"The sequel is set a year after Man of Steel, and the world is still getting used to having this powerful god on the planet who isn't fully trusted by everybody. Batman certainly doesn't trust Superman. Superman doesn't trust Batman; either of which causes the two to clash when they initially meet. They do however pair up to defeat the villains (not 100% confirmed who the villains are). COULD be Luthor and Joker, but only a select few really know that. Luthor is definitely in the sequel and he doesn't like Superman, believing him a threat to the planet."

Screenwriter David S. Goyer recently revealed the film's title will either be "Superman vs. Batman" or "Batman vs. Superman." It is expected to be released in 2015 with Zack Snyder attached to direct and Christopher Nolan producing.
