Some news items you might have missed:

• InstaHunk Stuart Reardon is giving his best “Clark Kent.” I’m willing to bet there’s a Superman under that shirt. I hear there’s an opening for the role, btw…

• Out lesbian Rachel Maddow not only has the top-rated show on her network, MSNBC, but she had the number one news show of all cable networks last week beating Fox News and CNN.

•  Cody Wilson, who owns a business that distributes blueprints for untraceable 3-D printed guns, has been charged with sexually assaulting an underage girl in Texas. Clearly proving his innocence, Wilson fled the country for Taiwan.

• A Florida father was arrested for driving his son to a park so he could have sex with his girlfriend.

American Idol alum and current The Voice judge, Kelly Clarkson, is getting her own talk show. According to reports, she’ll be the lead-in for Ellen in many markets.

• A new, mature version of Batman, titled “Batman: Damned,” depicts the caped crusader naked. And by naked, I mean full-frontal.

I won’t post here, but I can share a glimpse of bat-butt. The new series is for the DC Black Label division.

Warner Brothers Teases In Advance Of JUSTICE LEAGUE Trailer

With a full trailer promised for Saturday, Warner Brothers started sharing teases for the upcoming Justice League flick.

Via Deadline:

Zack Snyder’s Justice League is set for a November 17 release. In addition to Affleck and Momoa, the DC superhero mash-up stars Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, and Ray Fisher as Cyborg, with Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Amber Heard (Mera), Jeremy Irons (Alfred) and J.K. Simmons (Commissioner Gordon), with Willem Dafoe, among many others, also appearing. The script is by Chris Terrio.

Here’s the official logline: Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

So far, we’ve had quickies for Jason Momoa’s “Aquaman” and Ben Affleck’s “Batman.”

Watch below as I geek out 🙂

Sneak Peek: “Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice”

Warner Brothers dropped this sneak peek at Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice just two days ago and it’s already racked up over 8 million views.

The two things of interest here (besides Henry Cavill, who is “of interest” at all times to me, so that’s a given):

1. Batman is often seen in a tight jam. And he always gets out. But we rarely see him look this vulnerable. Why is this clip what WB wants us to see?

2. The anger in Superman’s face is so intense you have to wonder “what up, Supes?” According to sources, we know there’s kryptonite in the film, so did someone use it for a kind of mind-control over the Man of Steel? Or, is this a dream sequence?

The rest of the trailer will debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight.
