There’s a certain smell in the air today—a smell of hamburgers and hotdogs mixed with fireworks and Roland Emmerich films. It’s the smell of patriotism. The smell of freedom. The smell of American Independence Day.
Yesterday, we revealed the three winners of our #Clarkkenting Photo Contest. However, shortly after we launched the contest, it became clear that #clarkkenting had transcended a simple Twitter contest and become an Internet trend. People were getting their kids to do it. Getting their dogs to do it. Getting their iguanas to do it!
If you’ve been frequenting the DC Comics website recently, you may have noticed that there’s been a lot of coverage regarding a certain super-powered Kryptonian with incredible strength and durability, a Man of Steel, if you will.
It’s like we’re the Daily Planet up in here with all this Superman stuff, amirite? Which, really, why would we not want to be the Daily Planet? They’ve got the best reporters, exclusives regarding super-heroes, and a guy who is simply committed to bringing back the bowtie in a non-ironic fashion.
We’re heading into Man of Steel’s third week of release, and by now, it’s a pretty fair bet that if you’re a Superman or a DC Comics fan, you’ve probably already seen it. And if you’re a big fan, you’re probably going to see it again. In fact, the only real question for most of us is exactly how many times we’ll be seeing it before it leaves theaters.
What's "Clark Kenting"? It's the act of taking your glasses off in the most dramatic way possible, and for the next few days, it can win you a copy of the Man of Steel Soundtrack Deluxe Edition.
After over a year of discussion, speculation and edge-of-your-seat anticipation, Man of Steel is finally in theaters. For Superman fans, this is a pretty big deal. So you might want to dress for the occasion…
Fortunately, the fine folks at Old Navy are making this easy with their cool collection of Superman tees. After 75 years of heroics, Superman fans are as diverse as they come, but no matter your taste, style or size, they have a shirt that’ll be the perfect fit for you. Even better, these super tees start at just $8.
It’s been a great weekend for Superman, and an even better one for Superman fans, who came out en masse to catch their favorite hero’s latest cinematic foray, Man of Steel. By now, it’s safe to say that Henry Cavill’s debut in the cape is a big success, and that’s something we can all celebrate—those of us who work here at DC Comics and our amazing fans.
To celebrate the upcoming release of Man of Steel and get all of us into the super hero spirit, Old Navy has introduced the “Plank of Steel Challenge.” It's time to plank...like a hero.
When working in a business setting—even when that business entails publishing comic books featuring the World’s Greatest Super Heroes—one must usually hold to certain level of professionalism. We try not to geek out too much (we said try) even though sometimes we simply can’t help ourselves. That all said:
This week in ask DC Collectibles, we’ve decided to go a bit behind the scenes with our work on the Man of Steel statues, so all of your action figure questions with have to wait until next time!
Before we get to it however, one of them (the Jor-El statue) was just seen on Late Night with Jimmy Kimmel!
