You really can't tell a good Superman story without, at some point, introducing Lois Lane. She's crucial to Superman's character. More crucial even than either set of parents or villains like Lex Luthor. She humanises the character and allows him to have flaws and weaknesses and interesting feelings that are unrelated to Kryptonite.

As different as Justice League and Crisis on Earth-X are in shape and style, they're both trying to tell similar stories. It's just that Crisis tells that story much, much better. As dire as the DCEU may seem right now, not all hope is lost. Warner Bros.' film division just needs to pay attention to what their television arm is doing right.

When Clark Kent joined the Daily Planet at the end of Man of Steel, it was obvious there was more to come. However, that ended up being Batman v Superman followed by Justice League, two team-up movies that have the iconic hero as a supporting player. That will change very soon.

Despite being on television continuously from 1988 to 2010, Superman has only had two interpretations on the big screen in the past 40 years: Richard Donner's Silver Age-inspired fella who eradicates memories with a kiss, and Zack Snyder's Superman. The latter version is back this week, facing off against Batman -- and in an effort to get myself pumped for Batman v Superman, I've been mainlining Super-people stories like its my job. And I've come to one major conclusion: Immigration is the whole point of the Superman story. And if you don't keep that in mind, you don't get Superman.

Oh my God. This is incredible. Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel hits cinemas soon, and we can't wait to see it Down Under. We found ourselves wondering, however, what other films would look like if given the Snyder-treatment. Thankfully, we don't have to wonder: someone re-cut a new trailer The Matrix trilogy and it looks freaking amazing.
