Never thought I'd find Ma Kent appealing (and yes, I watch Smallville).

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Yeah they're taking their time with casting in order to get who they want for the parts they need to fill. Plus Zack has been busy with "Sucker Punch" right now. I've stated that we'll most likely get more casting news once his commitments to the film are over which should be in the next couple of weeks. He's promised the rest of the casting is gonna be awesome and so far it has been so I wouldn't be surprised if it continues in the direction it's been.

Roseanne Barr as Lois Lane....or Perry White.

I can go either way on this.

Candis Cayne as Lois? Now, that would be a statement.

I'd still like to see Tina Fey as Lois. Or Zoe Saldana.

^ If you've seen Megamind, then you've seen Tina as Lois. And bloody good she is too.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

New interview where he talks some about Superman. I'm definitely encouraged to hear that he wants a more "realistic" feel for this movie, and that it apparently won't just be in his usual, super-stylized style.

And he also plans to do a lot more location work than he's done in the past, so it won't just be another all-green screen thing either.

Frankly I don't mind if he continues to bring his stylish flair to the action scenes; I just don't want every OTHER freakin scene in the movie to be posed and stylized beyond belief as well (which for me was the main problem with Watchmen).

Yes, I was very reassured to read that. A fanciful concept like Superman works best cinematically if approached with verisimilitude. That's what Richard Donner did, and it worked well for him.

Actually I wouldn't like that. I'd prefer the action to be handled naturalistically too. We've already seen plenty of Matrix-style slo-mo and Snyder-style speed ramping in Smallville's action sequences, and though there have been occasional moments when it's reached the level of artistry, for the most part it's long since become a cliche.

And I'd still love to see a flying action scene in a Superman movie executed practically with skydiving stuntmen, rather than with greenscreen/wires or digital characters. That's something I've always wanted to see, and the closest there's ever been was an episode of The Greatest American Hero where you could blatantly see the rip cord and the parachute pouch -- but it was still exciting, and if they could do it on a TV budget, there's no reason a feature film couldn't pull it off.

I thought it was cool to see them try that (it was certainly better than putting the guy on top of a pickup truck, which they did later), but personally I thought that scene in GAH proved how the "real thing" doesn't look nearly as good as we imagine it. The way everything ripples violently in the wind like that, and the way the person's face gets all stretched and contorted, just doesn't really go with the graceful image I have of Superman.

I DID think the more toned-down version of the real thing used in SR (particularly during the plane rescue) worked really well though. I'd love to see Snyder follow SR's lead on that.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Super-cheeks and super-lips won't flap and wave as much as a mortal human's, and super-eyes have no need to squint against the wind. How would you deal with the instinctive tendency to squint for eye protection, against actual wind like that?

However, super-hair might get blown back more or less exactly like a mortal's would, and the forehead curl might really disappear, from being blown back, until he slows down or lands.

Best seen in any Superman movie Ever! I thought that wa exciting and realistic looking and want to see more action along that type of vein in the next movie.

If that were true than Superman wouldn't look like a real human being in any other situation either.
