That's what they said about Star Trek after Nemesis and Enterprise.
Yes, and thanks to Enterprise and Nemesis it seems as if we will never see Star Trek again.
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...
The movie was fun, but it wasn't Star Trek. And responding to a previous post is not trying to derail a thread.

What was Burton thinking; that must have been the transitional suit.

Re: Superman Lives Test Footage

This footage is the rebirth suit, not the actual Superman costume. It was established in a previous thread (where I believe supporting evidence was presented) that Superman would have started the film in this costume http://www.collider.com/2009/09/22/i...t-as-superman/

He then would have had the rebirth suit seen in this footage.

Re: Superman Lives Test Footage

Yeah it was supposed to be his black and silver suit from the Return of Superman arc. Which is why it had all the glowing lights and what not. I assume that was supposed to be part of the regeneration thingy.

I just want to know who here thought Nicholas Cage would've made a good Superman? He looks like a burnt-out stoner in those pics.

The words 'in those pics' are superfluous, aren't they?!

Here's a link to a site where I initially saw the footage, with some commentary on what this suit was about. It won't allow me to cut and paste the article but it confirms that the suit was meant to be the Eradicator. There's also a link to Smith's script

Re: Superman Lives Test Footage

I think I read somewhere that those pics of Cage in the Superman suit are not entirely real...that it's his head 'shopped onto a Superman action figure.

I'm very much for keeping Superman's costume the way it's looked for the past 30 or 40 years.
It's not like trying to make it more 'realistic' is going to help those people that may think it's goofy change their minds, and those of us that already accept it well, we already accept it.
A new costume too far from what we've seen in the past 30 to 40 years (I consider the Superman Returns one as basically the same as the others) would be like New Coke.

Oh my god... Nic Cage looks like he took that while he was in highschool back in the late 70's. As one poster already mentioned he looks like Stonerman.

Re: Superman Lives Test Footage

Why was Burton making a movie that looks so terrible? He did pretty well with Batman in the late 80s...

Re: Superman Lives Test Footage

Yeah that wasn't actually Cage but a mock up of him so they could see what the suit would look like. I guess he wasn't available that day for costume tests. This movie would have just made "Batman Forever" and "Batman and Robin" look like Oscar contenders in comparison. People shouldn't complain about "Superman Returns" after watching that footage. At least Singer understood a little bit better than Burton did who and what Superman was. This movie would have been a travesty.

Also, holy shit, this is ridiculous. Thank God this movie was never made.

Re: Superman Lives Test Footage

I think that the other thing to remember is that this movie was still in early stages. What we are seeing is far from a finished project. I still think that this movie had a lot of potential from what I've seen of the script. Some of the basic concept drawings of Brainiac were a little strange, but once again, they were in DEVELOPMENT.

That was the real costume. IIRC the "S" Shield also came off as a throwing weapon.
What else is new?
