Re: Superman Lives Test Footage

That was just horrid. On the one hand, it'd be interesting to see a darker Superman; but on the other, Superman is just one of those characters where "dark and gritty" doesn't seem to fit.
That being said, I'm really looking forward to see how Christopher Nolan manages to find the right balance though!!

Stop playing mini-mod. You're not cool enough to do that; no one likes you.

Tim Burton's Superman would've been one hell of an interesting train-wreck.

Yes. It would have set back the franchise and we would have waited another ten or fifteen years before WB was brave enough to tackle Superman again.

Re: Superman Lives Test Footage

Holy crap that was bad. Embarrassingly bad. Who knows, maybe the story could have salvaged something of the design. But the design is so bad that I can't imagine ever taking the film seriously.

The script had a few totally shitty elements but as I recall the story wasn't too bad. With a little Googling it's out there if you're really curious.

That's what they said about Star Trek after Nemesis and Enterprise.

After Star Trek (2009), I'm kind of upset we never got to see J.J. Abrams' Superman. It might have been interesting.

Re: Superman Lives Test Footage

uh. Wow.

Please tell me that was only going to be a "rebirth" suit and not his actual real costume...... right?


................... RIGHT!?!?


Either way that's pretty horrendous.

That was the real costume. IIRC the "S" Shield also came off as a throwing weapon.

I'd love to have seen it, it would've been totally insane. Superhero movies seem to make potentially good trainwrecks: Schumacher's Batman, Superman III/IV, Catwoman, Supergirl, Steel, and so on.

Yes, and thanks to Enterprise and Nemesis it seems as if we will never see Star Trek again.

Re: Superman Lives Test Footage

No, we need to get this thread out to as many eyeballs as possible as WHY TO NEVER. EVER. EEEEEEVERRRRR LET TIME BURTON NEAR DC CHARACTERS EVER AGAIN!

Who in their right frakking mind throught that suit was a good idea? I mean I'm sure the guys making it thought it was cool - but it's not Superman. The only way I see that suit being moderately useful is if they were actually going for the "electro Superman" thing where he turned blue for a while and was only powered when he was Superman and basically normal as Clark.

But I shudder to think of Nic Cage in that suit... or any Superman suit. Ghost Rider... ehhhhh okay, sota. But... oh god that's just... bad.

Actually, there was an excellent, almost unanimously praised Star Trek movie released in 2009.
Of course, you already knew that, and were just taking the piss, and trying to piss off people on this board, and derailing the current thread...
