Re: Does Superman Need A Make-Over?

Reminds me of how Kevin Smith described his work on the Superman Reborn script.

Producer:
"There's only three things I want: 1. I don't want to see him fly. 2. I don't want to see him in that suit. 3. He's got to fight a giant spider in the third act."

Re: Does Superman Need A Make-Over?

Yeah that was Jon Peters who Kevin was referring to. In the behind the scenes documentary for "Superman Returns" there's a bit where Peters is praising Bryan Singer saying stuff like "I should have listened to him from the start. This guy knows exactly Superman is all about and is making a kick ass film" That's not his exact quote but I couldn't help but laugh thinking about the complete 180 from Smith to Singer. LOL

"Giant fucking spiders!"

Although I thought Brainiac wrestling a polar bear would have been funny.
