There are things that are great and there are things that are great. And then there's Nathan Fillion being called to the aid of old friend—and fellow DC animated hero voice artist—Tim Daly, who can't stop being the Man of Steel.
Can you imagine being a plant worker whose great uncle knew you like comics as a kid and left you a couple of boxes of 'em when he died—and then discovering those boxes held a one-of-a-kind collection worth millions? Welcome to Michael Rorrer's life.
The Superman franchise generated so many false starts and development deals in the decade or so before Superman Returns dropped in 2006 that we've got no shortage of interesting "What Might Have Been" scenarios to ponder. For proof, just check out who McG wanted for Lex Luthor in his almost-movie Superman: Flyby.
If you're a hardcore superhero fan, you're going to love what's coming to retailers this year. The booths at Toy Fair '12 in New York City this week teased so many incredible DC, Marvel and more action figures, statues, busts and oddities that if the public were invited, we're sure there would have been drool stains everywhere.
Once upon a time, DC Comics felt that Superman had gotten too powerful and, as a result, had lost some of his appeal—and that the only way to make the Man of Steel a relevant character was to kill him off.

When you consider the fact that most rock stars try to pull off a superhero persona anyway, it's no surprise that everyone from Peter Parker to the Boy Wonder has inspired a few hit (and several deep cut) rock 'n roll tunes over the years. Heck, everyone from Prince to the Black Lips has wanted in on the action at some point.
Zack Snyder's not done casting for Man of Steel. Sure, he's got Superman, Lois Lane, and Perry White, but what about Lana Lang? Apparently, Clark's Smallville sweetheart also gets some screen time in Snyder's Superman reboot.
Boardwalk Empire star Michael Shannon sure seems to be getting into the villain's role. Recently the Man of Steel's new General Zod made a rather startling—and, likely very unpopular—confession. He doesn't like comics. At all.
We've been seeing photos leaked from the set of Man of Steel for a while now, but we've never seen anything like this before. Some superbeing got all destructive on the Superman movie set, and lucky for us, someone was close by to snap a photo of the aftermath.
