SUPERSAD Christopher Dennis—a street performer known for portraying Superman on Hollywood Blvd. for more than 25 years—died from a lack of oxygen after crawling into a clothing donation bin while high on drugs. The Man of Steel impersonator suffocated to death as a result of blunt force trauma to his head and neck … this according to the L.A. County Coroner’s Office. The Coroner’s report also cites methamphetamine toxicity as a significant factor in his death says TMZ.

DAVID CORENSWET who made a splash in Netflix’s The Politician and is rumored to be Warner Bros. choice to play Kal-El/Clark Kent/Superman in a Man of Steel reboot looked dashing on the red carpet. The actor already sounds like he’s got Kent family values writing, “TFW everybody’s focused on taking Jennifer Lopez’s picture so you just smile and pretend you got lost and wandered into the wrong awards show.
Thanks to @ralphlauren for the threads, @netflix for the show, and @goldenglobes for the invite.
And thanks @stevegranitz for taking a second away from JLo to snap this. You’re a hero. #goldenglobes #netflix#politician #hollywoodforeignpress#ralphlauren #RLpurplelabel”

ON #MEGXIT “From the very first headline about her being “(almost) straight outta Compton” and having “exotic” DNA, the racist treatment of Meghan has been impossible to ignore,” says author of Brit(ish): On Race, Identity and Belonging, in the New York Times. “Those who claim frequent attacks against the duchess have nothing to do with her race have a hard time explaining these attempts to link her with particularly racialized forms of crime — terrorism and gang activity — as well as the fact that she has been most venomously attacked for acts that attracted praise when other royals did them. Her decision to guest-edit British Vogue, for example, was roundly condemned by large parts of the British media, in stark contrast to Prince Charles’s two-time guest editorship of Country Life magazine, Prince Harry’s of a BBC program and Kate Middleton’s at Huffington Post, all of which were quietly praised at the time.”
Her treatment has proved what many of us have always known: No matter how beautiful you are, whom you marry, what palaces you occupy, charities you support, how faithful you are, how much money you accumulate or what good deeds you perform, in this society racism will still follow you.

13 Reasons Why actor Brandon Larracuente documented his visit to Warner Bros. studios on Instagram in July, punctuated by a stack of Blue Beetle comics. A sharp-eyed fan took notice and disseminated the images on Twitter.

Just another day at the office for Larracuente.
Mikey Sutton served up the scoop in an exclusive to JLS Comics a few weeks ago – an associate of Lords of the Longbox – on YouTube. Sutton says Berlanti is “going cosmic” and planning a Legion adaptation that has a big budget behind it.
Watch it below.
MEANWHILE Brian Michael Bendis is batting a thousand on the new Legion of Superheroes reboot over at DC Comics. Issue 2 cementing the deal for us. According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Part of the fun of Bendis’ first arc is how it utilizes familiar DC lore. Aquaman’s trident is at the center of the current arc, with three different warring factions after it. While there are plenty of new characters and adversaries to get familiar with, the past serves as an anchor. After all, part of the excitement of traveling to the future is finding out what happened to the characters we’re all familiar with and how their actions impacted the future, a future in which the world has ended twice over before the formation of the Legion. Legion of Super-Heroes is a complicated concept to get right, yet Bendis and Sook seek to make it one of DC’s A-list titles.”
FASHION HUNTING Love the Sales, the world’s leading designer discount marketplace has found the top 10 fashion items we all craved but didn’t want to pay full price for. Topping the list: The Burberry classic cashmere scarf.
1917 The Sam Mendes helmed World War One period piece is set to see big box office according to Deadline.
The Rise of Skywalker dominated in its third week of release, although 1917 will play at 3,300 locations against the sci-fi saga, which is expected to decline around 45% between $17M-$19M finally ceding the No. 1 spot to 1917 in its fourth weekend.
MIKE BLOOMBERG is willing to spend $1 billion to defeat Trump according to the New York Times.”Even if he does not win the Democratic nomination, and said he would mobilize his well-financed political operation to help Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren win in November if either is the party nominee, despite their sharp policy differences. Mr. Bloomberg’s plans would effectively create a shadow campaign operation for the general election, complete with hundreds of organizers in key battleground states and a robust digital operation, ready to be inherited by the party nominee — regardless of who that nominee may be.”
