^ Yep, L-Ron IIRC from Smith's script lol. I would love to see the Skull ship in all seriousness. Done properly and designed faithfully I think it would be fantastic to see on screen.

L-Ron...

I just thought of this, but could Smith have been making a passive aggressive comment about L. Ron Hubbard? Probably not, but given the whole Scientology/alien thing...

According to L-Ron's wiki entry, he was indeed named after L Ron Hubbard.

The wiki section http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manga_Khan#Relationships claims that this name was chosen because Hubbard was a science fiction author, with Heinlein and Dick. It also discusses J-Lo.

I still have those Bryne issues. I was fascinated with the concept of "Superman: Exile" I had nearly the entire run.

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

IIRC, Byrne left Superman right in the middle of writing this story and the resolution was written by someone without access to Byrne's notes. I always wondered if there were some "trap doors" in the plot that didn't come off because of that.

L-Ron is most definitely named after Hubbard. However, he was created in and for the comic books back in the 80s. I think by Keith Giffin for JLA/JLI

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

This is kind of a non-story but in case anyone thought that there might be some truth to the stories that the little-known Adam Harris was a front-runner for Lex or that Lana Lang was to be played by Lindsay Lohan - you can discount them. Turns out that Mr Harris was behind the hoax(es).

I read that Lana Lang & Pete Ross would play a small part in this movie...would be cool to see these characters in Man Of Steel.

^ I wouldn't be surprised if we saw them in some kind of Smallville scene.
