It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

What a Hot Mess: Hello, Entertainment Weekly? Where's Brandon Routh's Glory as Superman?

I'm sorry, but this is a hot mess.  Literally!  I just received my Entertainment Weekly in the mail and I'm disgusted with this magazine.  I think I'm going to quit it after this debauchery.  How do you cover Superman with 75 years of glory and not put the man who played him last, Brandon Routh?  Seriously, he was hot, perfect, and did exceptionally well as Superman.  I wasted my time watching Tom Welling on the CW's Smallville and he didn't even don the cape until the very end, and just barely.  Superman Returns actually made more than Batman Begins, grossing over $400 million dollars, so the movie didn't bomb.  And while everyone wants to blame it on Routh, the blaming goes much higher than that.  Regardless if the writers and producers didn't want to make it into a franchise, the man deserves credit where credit is due.  This is just absolutely wrong! One Hot Mess indeed!

They didn't include him on the cover because he is undoubtedly the least important Superman of them all having only appeared in one film with no follow up after the cancellation of his sequel due to the disappointing box office return. The movie actually only grossed $391 million worldwide on a budget of $204 million.

I believe they still could have made the space to add him. I think, no matter how you felt about the recent superman reboot, that it's time to move on from making Superman movies or at least the reboots. No one is going to be happy with everything because of all the intense scrutiny on such an iconic figure. Spider-Man got two reboots. This is Superman's second if you start counting from the days of Christopher Reeves. They have no choice but to keep Henry Cavil and make the next sequel more funnier/romantic or go Justice League with all of them or begin the next hero to give them some time in the spotlight. Though harsh criticism on Superman doesn't make a Wonder Woman movie any quicker to be made.
