Anderson Cooper - Anderson Cooper signs copies of his new book 'The Rainbow Comes and Goes' at Book Revue in Huntington at The Book Revue - Huntington, New York, United States - Sunday 24th April 2016
After 2013's beefy Man of Steel, director Zack Snyder goes even bigger and darker with this sequel, cross-pollenating Clark Kent's story with flashbacks to the origins of Bruce Wayne and his Dark Knight alter-ego. The problem is that the film is so big and loud that it can't help but feel bloated, especially since so much of what's on screen feels rather vacuous. But it looks amazing and is relentlessly gripping.
After a Bat-origin prologue, the story kicks off with the climactic battle from Man of Steel as seen from the perspective of Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck), watching his city being destroyed by Superman (Henry Cavill). This further fuels the rage that began when his parents were murdered. And that fire is stoked by the mischievous millionaire Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg). Meanwhile, Superman/Clark is struggling with how the world is revering him as a god, which is straining his relationship with intrepid reporter Lois (Amy Adams). As these very different vigilante heros head toward a climactic confrontation, Luthor is up to something seriously nefarious. And the ensuing chaos brings another hero into the open, Wonder Woman Diana Prince (Gal Gadot).
While the various plot threads are fascinating, and Snyder maintains a snappy pace, the overall story centres on the fact that Affleck's prickly, bitter Bruce is easily manipulated into doing terrible things, which makes him rather unlikeable. And Cavill's fundamentally good Clark isn't much easier to identify with. Both are also oddly constrained by their costumes and bulked-up physicalities, which leave them unable to move properly. This allows the side characters to steal the show: Adams adds emotion and passion, Eisenberg provides the nutty nastiness, Irons is hilariously cynical as Bruce's butler Alfred, and Fishburne is all bluster as Lois' editor. But in the end, the film belongs to the gorgeous, clear-headed Gadot, instantly making her stand-alone movie the most anticipated superhero project on the horizon.

The news anchor missed CNN's 'Anderson Cooper 360' on Monday after undergoing an emergency appendectomy the day before.
Anderson Cooper was forced to miss his own CNN show, 'Anderson Cooper 360,' on Monday (Dec 1st) after undergoing emergency surgery to have his appendix removed a day earlier, but the news anchor is expected to be back at work on Tuesday night's programming (Dec 2nd).
Cooper underwent an appendectomy on Sunday evening (Dec 1st)
Cooper took to Twitter to confirm he is already bouncing back after undergoing an appendectomy on Sunday evening (Dec 1st). He only took one day off to recover, but ensured worried fans everything will be back to normal for the next night. "I'll be back on air tomorrow. Had an appendicitis and had to have sudden surgery last night," he tweeted.
Anderson Cooper won't be getting mommy's millions.
Anderson Cooper may be sitting on millions of dollars, but he insists he has no trust fund from his millionaire mother. The cable news anchor, 46, is the son of heiress Gloria Vanderbilt - of New York railroad fortune fame - though insists the family's old money won't make its way to him.
Anderson Cooper Is Doing Just Fine On His Own
"My mom's made clear to me that there's no trust fund," Cooper told radio host Howard Stern on Monday. "There's none of that." The anchor said he "doesn't believe in inheriting money" and thinks it would be a "curse."

The comedienne made sure she saw in the new year with Cooper, whether he wanted it or not
Kathy Griffin made it seven years in a row when she hosted CNN’s New Year’s Eve special alongside anchor Anderson Cooper on New Year's Eve. In her previous seven appearances Kathy has been prone to the occasional piece of eccentricity and for her latest chance to ring in the new year, she was on arresting form again.
Griffin and Cooper brought the laughs once again
Griffin and Cooper have become a formidable team on New Years Eve and the 2013/14 celebration offered no exception to the rule, as the pair brought the laughs and cheer in abundance, but it was Griffin's own performance that stood out from the pack. In the past, Griffin has cursed on live television, stripped down to her undies, simulated sexual acts and more during her tenure with Cooper, prompting Cooper to take drastic measures this year.
The actress has had enough of the "morons" of tinsel town.
Roseanne Barr has shocked the Twittersphere with a series of angry, unhinged and profanity-laced tweets where the 6-year-old comedian unleashed her apparently true feelings towards Hollywood. "I'm never going to work in television again. I'm never going to even attempt it. I feel as if I've been insulted/assaulted for over a year," she wrote, launching a slew of fury towards those she feels wronged by.
Roseanne Barr Has Opened The Floodgates On Her Displeasure Towards Hollywood.
The rant was seemingly sparked after creative difficulties with the sitcom Barr is creating for US network NBC with Nurse Jackie creator Linda Wallen arose. "I don't have the emotional stability to withstand being manipulated and lied to anymore-now that I'm old," Roseanne tweeted, referencing apparent difficulties she had in the development process for her new show.
The actor had a spot on his nose checked out this week, which turned out to be cancerous
Hugh Jackman had his wife to thank after a he discovered an unusual growth protruding from his nose. The actor revealed earlier this week that he had a cancer spot removed from his nose, sharing the news with his fans via his Instagram, along with a picture of his bandaged nose, and gave us all a reminder of why wearing sunscreen is an essential task.
According to the actor, his wife Deborra-Lee Furness noticed the spot on Jackman and insisted that he have it checked out. Her weariness proved to be potentially life-saving for the Wolverine star, as his check up revealed that the growth was cancerous. It was a close call for the Aussie actor, who joins the likes of Eric Dane, Bruce Jenner, Ewan McGregor and Anderson Cooper, who have all shared their own brushes with cancer in the past.
"Deb said to get the mark on my nose checked. Boy, was she right! I had a [basal] cell carcinoma," the actor said in the caption for his pic. "Please don't be foolish like me. Get yourself checked. And USE sunscreen!!!"
Will Matt Lauer be at NBC for much longer?
Speculation surrounding Matt Lauer’s future at NBC has been rife, with many publications suggesting that he’s either about to jump ship, or be replaced by Anderson Cooper. But NBC have moved to stamp out those rumours.
NBC executive Alexandra Wallace told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement, "As we've said before, Matt Lauer is the best in the business. We want him in the Today show anchor chair for many years to come. We are not considering replacing Matt Lauer." NBC do go out looking for new talent regularly, but the idea that Cooper is someone they’re looking at was also dismissed. “NBC News has many exploratory talks with talent inside and outside of the network, but to read anything specific into that is presumptuous,” said an NBC News executive. Lauer’s relationship with the NBC execs has been a mixed bag. He hit out at the dismissal of Ann Curry, but was criticised for signing a 2-year $25m contract while her future was in jeopardy. For the network, though, the slide in viewing figures will be their biggest concern.

Will Anderson Cooper replace Matt Lauer on the Today show? Unconfirmed, but changes are certainly on the horizon.
The changes at NBC just keep on coming – this time it’s Anderson Cooper coming in as the rumoured replacement for Today show host Matt Lauer. There have been conflicting reports of how Lauer himself is taking the change – according to Deadline, the host isn’t too happy about his chosen replacement, while TMZ claims that Lauer is behind Cooper’s appointment all the way. The site reports that Lauer has even planned a meeting with his replacement to discuss the change.
Once again, nothing is set in stone about this transition, as an NBC exec told TMZ that network officials were in "exploratory talks with talent inside and outside of the network. But to read anything specific into that is presumptuous." Whatever the change may be and whenever it may happen, it makes sense in the context of NBC’s plummeting ratings. The network has been replacing and switching around hosts all throughout their programs.
Out with the old, in with the new. But is the 'new' Anderson Cooper?

Could Anderson and Matt Lauer be at odds?
Matt Lauer’s future at NBC has been in some doubt for a while now, with controversy after controversy coming his way. His network aren’t totally dumb though, and they’re lining up Anderson Cooper to fill his boots, should they be made for walking.
Based primarily on hearsay, the story was first reported by Deadline. Despite Lauer attacking the decision to oust Ann Curry, he’s been blamed for her exit - his new two-year, $25m contract the security the network needed before making the push. But security is a short-lived thing in television, and with ratings on the slide, Lauer’s position is far from safe. So step in Anderson Cooper, the recent recipient of the Vito Russo Award, named after a Glaad (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) founder. Anderson is a popular presence on the box, and even more popular are his New Years Eve shows with Kathy Griffin, which could become a regular thing. If hearsay is to be believed, then a pilot has been filmed at Time Warner Center in New York. Of course, this would mean the end of Lauer on Today. NBC reportedly approached the host, seeking his blessing for the switch around, but, quite predictably, he wasn’t happy and even phoned Cooper to express his dismay.
One in one out? Cooper & Lauer

Madonna called on the Boy Scouts to lift their controversial ban on gay people at the GLAAD Awards.
Madonna called on the Boy Scouts to lift its ban on gay members in a speech at the GLAAD Media Awards on Saturday night (March 23, 2013). Wearing a replica of the organization's uniform, the pop superstar said the scouts should "change their stupid rules," and allow gays to sign up. Her comments come shortly after Carly Rae Jepsen and Train pulled out of the organization's summer Jamboree over its discrimination. Replacements have yet to be announced.
Later in the speech, Madonna spoke about young people who take their own lives after suffering from bullying. As a mother of teenage kids, the singer said the situation is "an atrocity to me and I don't accept it." She also called on the star-studded audience to join her in a "revolution" to change the world, before smooching with gay television host Anderson Cooper after presenting him with GLAAD's 'Vito Russo' award. Cooper came out as gay last year.
Elsewhere, at the gay advocacy group's annual awards, film director Bret Ratner was honored with the Ally Award, despite joking that "rehearsing is for fags" at a press conference last year. The NBC drama 'Smash' and CBS's reality series 'The Amazing Race' also won prizes at the ceremony in New York.
