Um, Bruce, how about some brand consistency?

 Okay so, we did a post about the evolution of the Superman logo a little while ago, and I would like to point out, that the differences in the Superman logo vs. the differences in the Batman logo over time…. are pretty contrasting. In comparison, the Superman logo changed very little; changes in the shape of the “S” –whereas the Batman logo is all over the place. Honestly, they could probably have found several other variations of the logo if they had looked as thoroughly as the other infographic’s creators did.

It’s still cool to look through all the different manifestations of the symbol; it reminds me of the “Bat sign” and how it changed in the movies as well; the Robin red filter, and then the change back. There will be a new logo soon, once the Batman vs Superman logo makes it onto this list, –but will it be on this list, or the Superman list, –since technically, it’s a Superman movie, what with it following the events of Man of Steel?

“Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson has said he would like to take on the role of Spiderman in the Marvel and Sony reboot.”

He’s adorable, and I do not get how they turned him down; he’s a more experienced actor than Jennifer Lawrence any day of the week, –he’s been doing movies since he was little, and, he’s been great in them. So why not hand him a role in a comic book movie? I mean, Andrew Garfield has zero chance of convincing me he’s still in high school, which is where Spider-Man is set to appear in his next film, –which means you can almost guarantee that despite our complaints, there is going to be yet another long, long origin story that takes up half the movie. God, how many times do we have to watch Uncle Ben die?

Anyway, I think Hutcherson would make a good choice, –and he’s been passed over for it before. Ouch. His audition tape is floating around out there, so… check it out if you find it, then come back and tell me why he would suck as Spider-Man, because I just don’t see it.

OK, so maybe the Oscars were a little unkind to the superhero movie genre last weekend, but given the amount of big news from that side of the movie industry over the last seven days, it’s clear who’s likely to have the last laugh.

Jason Momoa, a.k.a. Khal Drogo, a.k.a. Conan the Barbarian has finally been shown off to the world as the King of Atlantis in the DC Universe. Just going off the picture and tribal influence therein, Zack Snyder’s direction is already looking interesting and I’m betting he’ll have interesting chemistry with Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel and Ben Affleck’s interpretation of The Caped Crusader. 

In other news, Viola Davis from How To Get Away With Murder fame has finally been confirmed to take the roll of Amanda Waller in Suicide Squad as their uncompromising and willing to make sacrifices leader. Still, I’d say it’s sadly disappointing that fan favorite C.C.H. Pounder, who voiced Waller in many animated shows and movies was passed over for Davis but considering her work on How To Get Away With Murder so far, I think she’ll do the role justice.

America’s Ace of the Airways is the subject of this week’s column on the history of comic-book movies.

That would be “Hop Harrigan” to those of you born this century, –but, to be fair, comic book movies got their start a very, very long time ago. Superheroes have long been the subject of film and TV, –just ask Superman, or Batman. This is actually the fifth chapter of the web series, so I definitely advise you to browse through the earlier installments.

Each entry gives the basic credit overview; directors, actors, and biographical information on the movies or shows. They also give the best and worst effects on the show. Most dated (oldest cliche) moments, the most timeless moments, and further thoughts (like on Jerry Springer), –and original shots from the production, –those will give you a hint on how old this contribution is. Who do you suppose will be next? I’ve got my fingers crossed for Spider-Man.
