Is Batman suing Superman?

I’m confused. What does “Batman Five Superman” mean? (via USA Today).

The director can’t say exactly how the relationship between the two superheroes evolves, “but suffice it to say there is a ‘v’ in between their names” in the movie title, Snyder says. He explains that having the “v” instead of “vs.” is a way “to keep it from being a straight ‘versus’ movie, even in the most subtle way.”

Oh. OK. It’s not a roman numeral. it’s a versus abbreviation.

I’m more confused. You use “v” instead of “vs” when you’re using versus in a legal case (i.e.: Roe v. Wade). Why is Batman taking Superman to the Supreme Court? Why do the filmmakers thing I’d want to see two hours of super litigation?

Steamrollered by a dog

This won’t take long. Don’t blink:

I don’t know where this is, but it looks like some kind of military training exercise for pups. And I couldn’t stop laughing when the guy went head over heels.

Good thing the dog has a muzzle on. No mauling, just jumping all over the tackle dummy. The look on the face of the guy who’s watching this is priceless.

Hero cat should take a few notes:

Return to D.C.

Travel from New York to Washington D.C. is a pain to figure out. Flying is too expensive and not very efficient because it puts you miles away from Midtown. The bus is cheap, and plants you in Midtown, but it offers cramped seats and the constant possibility that you’re trapped for hours in gridlock on the New Jersey Turnpike.

That leaves the train, which is like paying to fly, but the accumulated time it takes to get from the middle of D.C. to Midtown Manhattan is slightly less.

So I’m blogging from the train. On the Acela Express, which is faster than the regular train, but still takes 2.5 hours.

I kill time by turning on my mobile device, opening Google Maps in a satellite view or Google Earth and watching a representation of myself flying overhead along the tracks looking down.

This Acela Express, by the way is really flying. But I also like hovering over the train station when we stop to pickup and let off passengers. A virtual representation of being Superman.

(But my X-ray vision doesn’t work when we go underground in New York, Philadelphia or Baltimore. Gotta work on that.)
