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

Fixed.

You know, Supes has decided to renounce his American citizenship before the U.N., in Action #900.

I'm sure that's entirely coincidental to any desire Warners might have to "internationalize" the character a bit before they release a big budget movie that'll need to do good foreign box office.

So they cast an old hag as Lois Lane but a fresh faced sexy young actress as the villainess? If I had my way Auntje Trau would be Lois Lane!
This movie is gonna bomb so hard people would think they are watching footage of London in WWII.
I think there ought to be a law that people insulting other people's appearances on the internet are obliged to post a picture of themselves to compare with.

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

^ Dennis that was in a back up story and is unclear if that is actually going to be touched upon in either of the two books.

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

Superman is already pretty international anyways as as Justice League member who respond to global threats. Clark Kent is still a US citizen it's just Superman who is revoking his to better serve the role. That's what I got from the story. I doubt Cornell will use this in Action Comics if it is an ongoing thread.

It will be forgotten and never brought up again just like dozens of other shock value comic stories.

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

The thing is thought it wasn't a shock value story. It was like a two or three page back up story (actually longer than that) in a milestone issue. It just happened to be picked up by one of the comic news sites and went viral. Sigh.

And why wouldn't it? It's the most unique and "newsworthy" thing that there would be to report on.

Has FOX News fussed about it yet?

Whether it's touched on frequently or not doesn't have much to do with whether it's "in continuity" or not; for example, how often do they refer back to the story decades ago in which the United Nations issued Superman blanket permission to go anywhere in the world, into any country without carrying papers (on the odd notion that the U.N. could do that kind of thing)?

I'm not even American and I thought it was pretty lame how they glossed over the line like that, apparently to make Superman sound more "international". I know, it doesn't really matter since he's an alien so he doesn't technically belong to any earth nationality, but I like the idea of him being represented as an American hero.

I thought it was pretty cool how he flew to the White House at the end of "Superman II" to put back the flag Zod and co. had knocked down and promise the U.S. President "I won't let you down again".

Maybe some people think patriotism in movies is lame these days (possibly because America pushed it so hard after 9/11), but I think it's a good thing for superhero movies. Unlike others, I didn't mind all the pro New York stuff in the Spider-Man movies.

They don't make the decision because someone says "that's lame." It's strictly their idea of how to maximize box office.

I didn't (and still don't) mind it in the first one, because it seems natural. By 3, it is just overdone and shoved down the audience's throat (particularly at the end where everyone is just watching and cheering Spidey on as he gets the shit kicked out of him - it is like they are watching a movie).

NPR, Huffington Post, FOX News...in fact, this is the only thing that's getting Action #900 any real mainstream press coverage. It's newsworthy where the simple publication of a so-called "milestone comic" isn't, and one has to wonder whether that's another reason that they did it - the free advertising may pump up their sales a bit for at least a monty.
