Now that WB Pictures/ DC Comic's battle of the superheroes movie "Batman v Superman" has been released at the theatres, fans are now eagerly looking forward to the other team showdown which will happen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

As a follow-up to the last Avengers movie "Age of Ultron" as well as "Captain America: Winter Soldier", the next Marvel superheros movie "Captain America: Civil War" will see friends become foes.

Upon facing a call for accountability from the collateral damage caused by the battles with the aliens, Ultron, plus the costs faced by yet another international incident, Tony Stark/ Iron Man pushes for a government body to oversee the actions of the superheroes. In an effort to protect his friend Bucky coupled with his desire that the superheroes should be able to protect humanity without restraints, Steve Rogers/ Captain America goes against Tony Stark, causing a fracture between the former team members.

Wizards and Muggles Descend on Kinokuniya For Harry Potter Gathering

Everyone should know this by now: The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is not just for kids.

For one thing, many of the young 'uns are now already grown up and still retain their love for the best-selling book series by J.K. Rowling. And for another, many many adults are seriously into the Harry Potter universe right from the beginning!

Red Dot Diva readily admits she is one of these "older kids".

Yesterday afternoon, Kinokuniya held a Harry Potter Party where there was story-telling and fun activities related to the books. Red Dot Diva's friend and "older kid" Jas swooped in on her broom to the bash, and she conjured up this report of all the wizardy that transpired that day!

Artist of "The Zodiac Legacy" Book Series Andie Tong Meets Fans at Kinokuniya


Locally, there are still many who are not familiar with Singapore-based artist Andie Tong, but Red Dot Diva is pretty sure this is going to change very soon due to the success of his work with Disney's illustrated book series "The Zodiac Legacy", created by the legendary Stan Lee, and co-written by Stuart Moore. It is also Stan Lee's first illustrated book series.

"The Zodiac Legacy" is about the power of the 12 signs of the Chinese zodiac that have been unleashed all around the world. Chinese-American teenager Steven Lee absorbs the power of the Tiger and gets caught up with the whirlwind of events battling with the Vanguard - a group of mercenaries - who are trying to collect the powers from other hosts and use them for their own selfish means.

The action-packed first book "Convergence" was launched in early 2015. The follow-up book entitled "The Dragon's Return" was released last month, and was listed as a NYT best-seller for Children's Middle-Grade Hardcover!

Andie has worked in Australia and the UK, and is well-known with regular comic conventions goers around the world. He is definitely a familiar face to those who attend STGCC, and Red Dot Diva notices that his booth is usually swamped with fans.

Pic by Helen Sloane
There was much celebration (fortunately, without any poisoned wine.... yet) when Red Dot Diva found out her colleague Celine is as crazy over the HBO TV series "Game of Thrones" as she is.

When Red Dot Diva conveyed to her the breaking news that young Bran Stark aka Isaac Hamsptead Wright will be visiting the Red Dot Island for the series' Season 6 promotion, Celine was so excited, she sputtered out this inspired piece of haiku:

Winter is coming
April 2nd, Bran Stark comes
Jon Snow is still dead

*Suddenly having visions of Jon Snow dying in pools of his own blood* Nooooooooooooo!!!

But also, Yeahhhhhhh!! Bran Stark is coming (oops, that sounded lewd) will be here soon!

Making a guest appearance in Asia for the first time, 17-year-old Isaac Hampstead Wright will be meeting fans on April 2nd at the Game of Thrones Experience: "Worlds of Westeros" (#GOTAsiaWOW) at ION Orchard, Basement 4. This special interactive area is set up by HBO Asia to pump up the anticipation for Season 6 of the award-winning fantasy drama series based on the books written by George R.R. Martin.

Batman v Superman Movie: Is There Going To Be A Batmobile at Clarke Quay?

Following the aftermath of what happened at the end of the 2013 movie "Man of Steel", a vigilante from Gotham City, the Dark Knight aka Batman (Ben Affleck) sweeps into Metropolis in a move to hold Superman (Henry Cavill) accountable for his actions.

Directed by Zack Snyder with the screenplay by Chris Terrio and David S. Goyer, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", will bring two of DC Comics' popular superheroes head to head, as

This is the first live action movie where both Batman and Superman appears on screen together, so understandably, the level of anticipation is high for hardcore fans. However, there are also many viewers who are still feeling mixed about the movie, mostly because they felt disappointed by the storytelling and tone in "Man of Steel".

There has been a lot of fleck about Batfleck, and Red Dot Diva has to admit she isn't a big fan of that either. Having said that though, from what she has seen in the trailers released so far, she is getting a bit more used to the notion.
