It is fucking fixed...happy...I misread it.

I took Tom Welling & Brandon Routh out too.

Breath. It's ok.

I know you really want Tom Welling to get a chance to play Superman in a movie, but you really need to accept the fact that is NOT going to happen. It just isn't.

I'd love to see the revival of the Superman musical that's been put on at the Dallas Theatre Center. It looks like they've got a great take on how to handle the whole thing conceptually. This character really belongs to the 1930s.

Of course they talk about taking it to Broadway, but that's not likely.
I saw a reading of this earlier this spring. It's ok. There's a sense of humor about it. But at the time of the reading, it was way more camp than I think people will like. Well, maybe that's not true, it will be great family fun. Maybe. The songs are ok.

That said, I feel like it's in a weird way in competition with Tamor's Spiderman. I'm sure someone went: hey, Spiderman is coming to Broadway, we should redo the Superman musical... (There are clips of it on youtube. It had a TV version of it...)
