A Filipino man by the name of Herbert Chavez loves Superman so much that he’s had 19 surgeries to try to become Superman. And Chavez is by no means finished. Really. He’s even had abdominal implants — apparently that’s a thing. Chavez makes a habit of strolling around his neighborhood streets decked out in full-out Superman attire, because you’ve got to go big or go home, right? He says his goal is to teach local kids good morals. Chavez also proudly sports a Guinness World Record for the biggest Superman memorabilia collection (1,253 items, in case you were wondering). YOLO, I guess. Keep doing you, buddy. I wonder if he has meetups with all the Real Life Human Barbie Dolls. [Telegraph UK]

I Suddenly Want To See “Man Of Steel”

Hellllllo, Superman...

I don’t usually get it up for superhero movies. I mean, I loved “The Dark Knight Rises,” mostly because of Heath Ledger’s performance as The Joker. I will always have a special place in my heart for 1984′s “Supergirl” — Faye Dunaway as Selena was so glam. But otherwise? Meh. That is, until I saw the latest trailer for “Man of Steel,” the latest Superman reboot. First of all, Henry Cavill, hello. How are you? You are pretty. I am soooo digging Cavill’s wooly and woodsy version of Clark Kent. But seriously, this latest trailer makes the film look epic. Maybe it’s the PMS talking, but I got emotional. Count me in!

The Demand For A Real Life Death Star Is Remarkably High, Plus The “Man Of Steel” Trailer Debuts!

  • That petition demanding the U.S. government build a Death Star is actually getting a lot of signatures. [The FW]
  • The feminist “Walking Dead” fan in your life will be really happy if you get her this “Michonne: Impossible” T-shirt for Christmas. [The Mary Sue]
  • The first official trailer for “Man Of Steel” — the Superman reboot starring the dreamy Henry Cavill — is out! [The Mary Sue]
  • Super cute kids watch the trailer for “The Hobbit” and react adorably. Much more entertaining to watch than the epic yawning do during the “Hobbit” trailer. [The FW] Keep reading »

For those of you who wish Halloween was a year-long affair or still dream of being a super hero(ine), we have some good news for you. Some genius is trying to capitalize on the dwindling Snuggie craze by creating Snuggie-esque wraps that feature Superman and Wonder Woman on the front. Like the Snuggie, these comfy wraps protect from the cold, leave hands free, and make you look as ridiculous in front as you look in back. Would you wear a super heroine wrap? [Fashionably Geek]

Clark Kent And Lois Lane Are Dunzo. Plus Other Iconic, Fictional Couples Who Broke Up.

In the past few years, we’ve seen many celebrity couples split that we really thought would be in it for the long haul. Get ready to add another iconic pair to the list. Apparently, after sniffing butts since 1938 and finally marrying in 1986, Clark Kent and Lois Lane are dunzo. DC Comics is planing a reboot of the Superman franchise to begin on September 28th. And here is their description of the new issue #1: “Clark Kent is single and living on his own. He has never been married. Lois Lane is dating a colleague at the Daily Planet (and his name isn’t Clark Kent).” [Forbes]

So sad. After the jump, other fictional couples who have split.

Fun In Casting: Lindsay Lohan In “Superman”? Blake Lively As Young Carrie Bradshaw?

Lindsay Lohan may be out as Linda Lovelace, but the word on the street is that she’s been having an awful lot of conversations with the makers of the new “Superman” reboot, starring Henry Cavill. Apparently, Lindsay is in talks for a role. It’s been confirmed that there will be no Lois Lane this time around, which has me thinking maybe LiLo is being considered to play Lana Lang, Clark Kent’s first love. After all, Lindsay does have the right initials for the franchise. [TMZ]

And another interesting casting rumor circulating this morning—could Blake Lively be tapped to play young Carrie Bradshaw? Keep reading »

Hello, Superman: 5 Things You Should Know About Henry Cavill

Faster than a speeding bullet, British actor Henry Cavill swooped in and snagged the role of Superman (and his equally hot yet mortal alter-ego, Clark Kent) in the new film directed by Zack Snyder. This guy must have acting skills of kryptonite because he beat out both Joe Manganiello and Jon Hamm for the role. I wonder who will be his Lois Lane? I certainly wouldn’t mind getting into a phone booth with him. After the jump five things you need to know about the man behind the cape. Keep reading »

Superman’s S&M Fetish

While Clark Kent was changing into his Superman cape and adventuring around saving people, he had a second alter ego who was really into whips and chains. While the Superman comics sold like hotcakes, a second comic book was making the rounds called Nights of Horror. These books featured Superman and Lois Lane getting down and dirty. Joe Shuster, one half of the team who created Superman in the 1930s, lost the copyright to the characters and was receiving practically no money for his hit cartoon. He was super strapped for cash, so he started anonymously freelancing for the mob and took up illustrating these racy comics. Nights of Horror comics were sold under the counter at Times Square bookstores during the early 1950s.

Oh, it gets seedier. In 1954, a neo-Nazi Jewish teen group known called the Brooklyn Thrill Killers went on a murder spree, and many blamed Nights of Horror for being their inspiration. The magazine was deemed so inappropriate that the U.S. Supreme Court banned it. Keep reading »
