Kleefeld's FanthropologyFor the past five years or so, the name of Herbert Chavez has popped into my view on a roughly annual basis, and it's always in the exact same context. He's the gent from Calamba City, Philippines who's undergone multiple plastic surgeries to look as much as possible like Superman.

The mainstream articles almost always read exactly the same, regardless of the outlet or the year, so I won't belabor all the details here, but the short version is that he really, really, really likes DC Comics' Superman and struck a deal with a local plastic surgeon to get these procedures done for free in exchange for doing promotion work for him. My guess is that each spate of articles is prompted by a new procedure having gone well. Read More...

With the Internet pretty much calmed down since last week's announcement that Ben Affleck would be playing Batman in 'Man of Steel 2', and the rumor mill all but confirming Bryan Cranston as villain Lex Luthor, the obvious next question is: who will play Superman?

It's an obvious point, but so far, Warner Brothers has been relatively mum on the subject of the actor jumping into the old red and blue... Though we have a few ideas. First, given the uproar over Affleck, Warner Brothers will want someone not quite as divisive to the fan community; possibly even someone relatively unknown to them, who won't carry the baggage Affleck does to Batman. And they've already got the buzzy Cranston, coming off 'Breaking Bad' as the bad guy, so WB can go the Marvel, relatively unknown route for the Superman part.

Earlier this week, it was announced that Ben Affleck will be playing Batman in the new Man of Steel movie Batman vs. Superman due out July 2015. After the announcement was made the internet proceeded to explode with immediate criticism from the masses of Batman fans, many citing Affleck's rather disastrous role in Daredevil as evidence of his inability to play a superhero. Memes were born, death threats were made, and three of MTV Geek's resident geek girl bloggers sat down for a round-table discussion about the matter.
