Clark even has worn a version of the Superman Returns suit. Adam Kubert did the redesign of the costume during the "Superman: Last Son" arc which was Johns first arc on Action Comics.

Johns resurrected Green Lantern, so I can't be too disappointed in him.

^ Yep! He also restored the Legion and Clark's history with them.

It's not Clark that is revoking his citizenship though...
...which is funny because Clark's citizenship is illegitimate. He wasn't born in the U.S., and he didn't go through any sort of naturalization process.

I know. I was aware of this. It's part of what I was calling "lame". I just think if you're going to use that catchphrase, use the whole damn thing. It's not worth using if it's not going to be used properly.

So they cast an old hag as Lois Lane....






What's so surprising about that? Can you honestly tell me that actress from 'Being Erica' wouldn't be a better pick for Lois Lane?

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

What's wrong with Amy Adams? Erin Karpluk (if that's who I assume you're talking about) is hot and a great actress but is an unknown and would be something of a risk to play Lois Lane. Amy Adams is attractive, is a great actress and has name and star power. I don't get your reasoning and think you're just slagging the actress for no particular reason.

Who has star power? Amy Adams? Not more than Erin Karpluk thats for sure. Plus its not the age that makes someone a 'hag', its the look. Diane Lane (the new Martha Kent) is 40+ yet she looks more youthful, vibrant and fresh-faced than Lindsay Lohan who is barely 25. And I certainly don't find Amy Adams attractive.

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

I'll bet you no one outside of Canada or anyone else who watches "Being Erica" knows who Erin Karpluk is and most people will know Amy Adams from "Enchanted" which launched her career. Amy also has an Oscar nomination (and yes I know Erin has won Gemini Awards ) so I don't know how you can claim Amy doesn't have star power. If she didn't, she wouldn't be in the running for the role in the first place.

Look it's obvious you're against this film (you've already stated that it's going to bomb and have been critical of Synder which is all well and good) I just don't see how your points have any merit at all.

Do you by chance post on another board where you complained about a "no-name" actress like Laura Prepon getting the role on Castle of the actress playing Nikki Heat over a "big time A-list star" like Jewel Staite?

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

Amy Adams was more recently in Julie and Julia which is a chick flick, but I watched it. I actually liked it and the way she looked in that movie, I immediately thought Lous Lane. Also, maybe it's just me, but I've always assumed Lois was older than Clark since she was well established at the Planet by the time he showed up.

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

Lois has been depicted as being older than Clark in recent versions but I don't think that has always been the case. I think they've been the same age or close to each other's age. I believe they were relatively the same age in "Lois and Clark".

^ 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.
A back up story that happened to be written by David Goyer who also is writing the script for the movie.

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

You know what...good point, I'd actually forgotten who had written the story. Goyer is actually co-writing the script. He came up with the film treatment and story though according to some early interviews Nolan gave last April.
