MAN OF STEEL
The folks at ComicBook.com searched up a Live Auctioneers auction for props used by Amy Adams during her portrayal of Lois Lane — including a fake diamond engagement ring. Check out the photo of the auction’s items below. The ring is above the post-it notes.
Adams also spoke briefly about the challenges of “Man of Steel,” among other things, in an interview with Vanity Fair.
“It was so fun, such a departure from anything I had done before,” Adams told Vanity Fair. “And more challenging than I expected, in the nature of creating these whole entire worlds that are not there.”
Voice From Krypton spoke with “Man of Steel” co-writer David S. Goyer, DC Entertainment co-publisher Jim Lee and more on the challenges of bringing Superman to popular media.
“I think a character like Superman is more challenging than a character like Batman, because Superman is known for being somewhat of a Boy Scout,” Goyer told Voices from Krypton. “But as Zack Snyder has said, I think we’re attempting to depict him in a slightly more realistic way, and our goal was to make you care about him as a real person and sort of get to know him in a way that we’ve never known him until now.”

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2
The new look for Spider-Man in Marc Webb’s “Amazing Spider-Man 2” has been partially revealed. There are a number of design element of the suit that mesh better with the comic book incarnation of the character — it’ll be interesting to see how Webb reconciles these changes to the real-world approach of “Amazing Spider-Man.”
Dane DeHaan, who has been cast as Harry Osborn, spoke with New York Times Magazine, stating he’d be starting his share of shooting soon in New York and that his workout regimen has greatly increased in preparation.
“I work out incredibly intensely six days a week and I eat every two hours,” he said. “Mostly proteins and veggies. I consume at least 3,000 calories a day. I’ve already gained seven pounds in six weeks!”

STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS
While speaking with EW.com, “Star Trek Into Darkness” director J.J. Abrams acknowledges that the sequel likely should have released earlier, and discusses the change in process from “Star Trek” to its sequel.
“It’s not decades, but it’s long enough that you do have to remind people what the thing is and where it’s at,” Abrams told EW. “It would have been better probably for the studio [if we’d put it out earlier], because it would have been fresher in people’s minds. But I’m happy we didn’t rush it. It wouldn’t have been a better movie if it came out earlier, I know that.”
Abrams continued, discussing the difference in the actors from “Star Trek” to now. “I would say all of the actors, uh, have more opinions this time,” he said. “The first time they were all kind of trusting of me and of the process. They hadn’t proven to themselves that they could play these characters. Now they’ve been these characters, and they’ve been told — by me and by many others — that they are loved as these characters. So they came to the table with attitudes and opinions that in most cases were entirely valid and hugely important. And all of them are crazy-smart.”

Colton Haynes spoke with MTV about his debut on “Arrow” last week as Roy Harper, continuing the mystery of who might become the sidekick of Stephen Amell’s Green Arrow character by dating Thea Queen, Oliver’s sister.
“There are so many similarities between them,” Haynes told MTV of Roy and Thea. “It’s interesting because Oliver calls her ‘Speedy’ and she calls me ‘Speedy.’ So it’s this interesting thing, it’s gonna keep the fans of the show and the comic book on edge. Is Thea going to be Speedy or is Roy going to be Speedy?”
