There is injustice in this world. Most notably, there is the total state of disrepair of the house where Superman was created. So it is that a charity is born: The Siegel and Shuster Society.
Not only do they hope to raise funds to revive the home, but they also hope to become a group that encourages random acts of kindness.
So if you can’t scrape up enough dough to help restore the home, you can make Superman proud by doing something kind today.
Up, up and away!

A federal judge ruled Wednesday that they are entitled to a part of the copyright on the character that Siegel co-created. Time Warner, the parent company of D.C. Comics, may owe the heirs for use of the character since 1999. The ruling, if upheld, will no doubt complicate matters for a Superman Returns sequel and Justice League film.

I can’t keep up with all this Indy news,
and no Jaders are volunteering. You should try the Unofficial Indiana Jones Movie Blog.

Sean Connery ‘considering’ Indy IV. Speaking of sorta maybe Indy stuff, be warned that Indy rumor-ridden young actor Shia LaBeouf will be hosting this Saturday’s Saturday Night Live. Indiana Jones jokes are likely!
In other rumor news, could Orlando Bloom be considering a role in the sequel to Superman Returns? I’m not feeling it.
Harvey Dent is appearing in The Dark Knight but his alter ego Two-Face is less likely.
And enough about that – I both kind of want to see and yet dread the Nancy Drew movie, but here’s some pictures to get the preteens excited.
And lastly The Voyage of the Dawn Treader may have found a director. Don’t screw it up, Hollywood – it’s my favorite. (Irony!)

Say what you will about the Expanded Universe and its many flaws, but at least no one ever tried to mind-whammy a Skywalker into doing porn. (Fanfic writers: Sssshhh!)

SciFi Wire reports that one of the writers of the next Superman film is promising a more action-oriented sequel. They may even draw one (or maybe more than one) villain from the DC universe.
