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.

A Fan's Encounter: Meeting "Superman" Henry Cavill in Gibraltar!

There are many, many people in this world who dream of meeting Superman.

The closest one could probably get to that wish, is to meet Henry Cavill - the actor who plays the current Man of Steel in the movies.

One of Red Dot Diva's online acquaintances Anthony Ong, achieved that personal goal recently despite facing some health issues. During the time that he was planning to meet Henry Cavill in Gibraltar, Anthony suffered from a returning bout of Bells Palsy. The affliction gave him a lot of pain in his cranial nerve and caused some of his facial muscles to freeze up. Anthony nearly cancelled his trip because of that.

It was a good thing he didn't. Because of his dedication towards #ProjectHenry (this was what Anthony had named his personal mission), he not only got to meet the lovely Henry Cavill, he also managed to exchange more than a few words with the actor.

Now, some readers may be wondering... why of all places Gibraltar? As an ambassador for the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund (RMCTF), Henry Cavill was taking part in the 350th anniversary of the Royal Marines held on 24-27 October 2014 by participating in the 5km The Gibraltar Rock Run. As in most grand celebrations, there was a gala dinner which Henry Cavill also attended.

Here are some edited excerpts from Anthony's story:

Archaia Goes Greek with "Immortals"

As a child, Red Dot Diva was besotted with the various stories from Greek mythology. They were abridged versions, of course, but whenever she saw a book about them at the old National Library, she nabbed it.

Not only were there all these weird and interesting gods, monsters and creatures, their world saw various heroes going through such wondrous and marvellous adventures that became fertile ground for Red Dot Diva's imagination.

When she grew up, she appreciated how hunky those Grecian warriors actually were. Which of course, added much meat to that growing imagination. Heh.

The epic blockbuster "Troy" in 2004 was a really good attempt in bringing back some Greek into Hollywood. Who can forget Eric Bana's gallantly sacrificial Hector? Red Dot Diva can't say the same about the recent Grecian heroes movie "Crash Clash of the Titans" though, which was an awfully loud let-down. BTW, no need to draw "300" into the comparison, because in Red Dot Diva's case, all those abs just simply blinded her sense of judgement. *g*
