Loki

Loki fans, time to break out your sad-faces: the Asgardian Trickster God won't be coming back for "The Avengers 2."

Director Joss Whedon broke the news while speaking with Empire recently, stating that he's not aiming to chase the same successes of his first record-breaking "Avengers" film while developing the upcoming sequel. Tom Hiddleston's fan-favorite villain is a casualty in that regard.

Captain America

by Brett White

Wherever "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" goes, The Plain Dealer will follow. Today's live blog covered scenes shot on the Cleveland-Fairview Park bridge, which happened to include Captain America hopping back on a motorcycle for the first time since "Captain America: The First Avenger."

Well, the Captain America costume at least. The picture below (after the jump) captures someone else sporting Steve Rogers' new look, but it's easily the best, most clear look we've had at the suit. So far we've only seen concept art and blurry set photos. The new duds are more in line with his "First Avenger" look, and the dark coloring makes it seem more stealthy than patriotic. That makes sense since Steve is now spending his 9 to 5 working for S.H.I.E.L.D.

Check out the photo below, and be sure to keep up with the daily coverage over at The Plain Dealer.

John C Reilly

by Brett White

And now, in non-"Man of Steel" news, "Guardians of the Galaxy" has a confirmed casting that we've been crossing our fingers for for almost two weeks now; Deadline has reported that John C. Reilly is officially joining the cast as Nova Corps member Rhomann Dey.

In a curious turn of events, though, they initially reported that he would be playing Ronan the Accuser, which is an entirely different character altogether. Ronan would definitely fit into the film, as he's a big player in Marvel's line of cosmic comics, but he'd also add a whole other group of characters (the Kree) to the film. "Guardians" has gone from starring just the current roster and maybe Thanos, to now incorporating the original Guardians, the whole Nova Corps, and possibly even former Image Comics character Angela. Then there's the matter of who in the galaxy Benicio Del Toro is playing! If Reilly was playing Ronan the Accuser, that would mean that the Kree would be added to the already stuffed film.

Lois Lane

by Brett White

With "Man of Steel" opening today in theaters, all attention is currently fixated on Superman. But there's another character that has been by his side for 75 years, who debuted right alongside him in "Action Comics" #1 way back in 1938, and who is incredibly important to the Superman mythos. That character is Lois Lane, the fearless reporter whose human courage inspires even Earth's powerful alien protector. The legendary character is brought to life in the new film by Amy Adams, who inherited her press pass from Kate Bosworth, Erica Durance, Dana Delaney, Teri Hatcher, Margot Kidder, Phyllis Coates and Noel Neill, among others.

But when you're paired up with a man who can punch mountains, you're bound to get overlooked. We're here to make sure that doesn't happen. Without Lois Lane, there is no Superman. To give the character some much deserved attention, we approached a panel of comic creators, journalists and fans to get the lowdown on Lois Lane.

"Lois is central because she's Clark's hero. She's audacious. Irrepressible. Superman might catch that meteor to protect Ma and Pa and Jimmy, but Lois is the reserve when all other fuel is depleted. She's the fire behind the heat vision. She teaches him something new every day, about humanity, about shrugging off the perceived limitations of the individual in pursuit of social justice. She's as much a crusader as Batman, but she doesn't need to hide behind a mask." — Paul Montgomery, iFanboy

"To my mind Lois is the high point of human spirit who routinely changes the world for the better by getting out in it and making things happen." — Jeff Parker, writer "Adventures of Superman"

Man of Steel

by Brett White

Superman soared past Iron Man last night, proving that Stark Tech is no match for good ol' fashioned Kryptonian genetics. "Man of Steel" soundly bested "Iron Man 3" with a late night haul of $21 million, surpassing the armored Avenger's $15.6 million.

I'll start this bad boy off with a massive SPOILER warning, as I'm going to be diving into "Man of Steel" and, yeah, "Marvel's the Avengers" pretty heavily in this post. But everything before the jump will be spoiler-free, so feel free to stick around a little while longer. And spoiler avoiders, you should really bookmark Alex Zalben's article at MTV Geek to read later before you dash away. It's a great read after you've seen "Man of Steel," and it touches on about a million points I whole-heartedly agree with.

So now, let's jump into spoilers as I discuss the very eye-grabbing headline I saddled this op-ed piece with.
