Superman Statue Update

I gave my quick thoughts in a recent Vlog about the leaked photos on set for the Justice League prequel which it’s becoming more of then a Man of Steel followup (sequel not till five years apparently…ugh) nor DC’s two biggest characters’ first encounter even less with the inclusion of Ray Fisher as Victor Stone aka Cyborg (52 plugging) and now Arthur Curry/Aquaman to be played by ex-Game of Thrones actor, Jason Momoa.

Despite all that, Batman-News seems to give context to the stills mentioned above.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice takes place about two years after the events of Man of Steel. Gotham and Metropolis news trucks and helicopters were on the scene to cover the Mayor’s speech and the statue unveiling. Elementary school kids wore “Superman Survivors” shirts and helped pull a sheet off the statue for the big reveal. They also released real doves to celebrate statue unveiling.

At least it put to rest that memorial theory I myself freted over. It’d be cool addition to have Berkowitz be the one hosting since he appeared in a couple of issues from John Byrne’s run. Goyer (before he spat at both companies’ fanbases) had the courtesy to include Emil Hamilton (Richard Schiff) even though he got killed off when Colonel Hardy (Christopher Meloni) crashed his C-17 into the Black Zero spacecraft while Kal-El’s ship activated the Phantom Drive.

Gotham’s media are gonna be naysayers as an allegory to haters of the Big Blue Boyscout. Adding peace-loving birds just inserts more fuel-to-their-fire. Collateral damage you can hold the Metropolis Marvel accountable for are Smallville’s destruction along with the Kryptonian scout ship steering into The City of Tomorrow. Might aswell throw in Billy Batson/Captain Marvel/Old Wizard’s name into the young crowd since his solo film is on the table aswell.
