Be The Hero. Or Just Geek Out at the Batman v Superman : Dawn of Justice Promo Activities at Clarke Quay and Bugis+


It's about time Warner Bros. Pictures takes over centrestage for the next few weeks as CapitaLand Malls goes all out with the promotional movie tie-ins for the next big DC Comics superhero movie "Batman v Superman : Dawn of Justice".

Last Friday night on 4 March, Red Dot Diva was invited for the media preview which was held in two places - Bugis+ and Clarke Quay. This is the first time CapitaLand Malls is doing a movie tie-up of such an extensive scale, and their marketing team seemed to be very excited about the events that they have planned for fans and shoppers.

Over at Bugis+, the open space area on Level 2 has been set aside as a battleground for the two popular DC caped superheroes, with a special appearance of the warrior princess, Wonder Woman.

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.

Get Fit with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Dojo Experience and DC Justice League Run!

Who says Nerds can't be physically fit too?

Not all superheroes are blessed with superpowers. So, they would have to consistently work out to maintain strength and dexterity to fight the baddies! Just look at Red Dot Diva's fave superhero, Batman!

So, if one is aiming to add a bit of muscle to their bods, Red Dot Diva recommends that the upcoming 4-week June school holidays would be a great time to start.


Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Dojo
Children's cable channel, Nickeldodeon is set to train up some young ones on their turtle ninja skills with a Dojo hosted at Downtown East.

There will be the following activities at the Dojo:

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:

The Singapore Philatelic Museum Goes Postal For Batman 75th Anniversary!


The Singapore Philatelic Museum puts the pop-culture cool back into snail mail stamps, as it kicked off celebrations for the 75th Anniversary of Batman earlier this month.

The theme of the birthday celebration for the Dark Knight was "The League Against Evil: A DC Comics Super Heroes Exhibition", and was organized in collaboration with Warner Brothers Consumer Products, DC Entertainment and Pacific Licensing Studio.

Having missed out on the launch of the exhibit on 5 June because it was RDD Diva-Mom's birthday (and Diva-Mom *always* takes precedence!), Red Dot Diva managed to carve up some time to take a peek of the exhibit at the museum yesterday. Her friend Vernon, who has never visited the museum before, came along with her.

Red Caped Destiny - Smallville's Series Finale

10 years.

Imagine that.

That was how long Red Dot Diva had invested some of her pop-culture time with the long-running CW (previously WB) series, "Smallville". A re-imagining based on the popular and very well-loved DC comics character, Superman.

Perhaps one should tip a hat off to Tom Welling. For without him staying as youthful-looking as he did, Red Dot Diva doubts the series would have stayed on for this long!

The two-hour finale was announced many weeks before and fans were already aware of several re-appearances by well-loved actors, including Michael Rosenbaum. Even Greg Beeman was back directing for the final hour of the series. Greg has some wonderful behind the scenes stories and pics of the finale on his blog. Click here to check it out!

So after 10 years of trying to embrace his destiny and attempting to actually fly, "Smallville" ended two Fridays ago on May 13th with his Kal-El-ness finally taking to the skies in that familiar red-caped costume. About fraking time right?
