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

No idea. These are rumors...and yes I realize my previous stance but considering the sudden casting of Jor-El that came out of no where I thought it prudent to mention them.

If it turns out to be true I don't see them spending too much time on Krypton anyways, unless these extra Kryptonians come out of the PZ or something.

One of them is Jax-Ur. I can't remember the other one though.

Jor-El attacks Zod for cutting his poetry recitation from a tv broadcast by throwing a phone at him.

Actually, I think this is a pretty good choice.

I wouldn't say embarrassed so much as trying hard to put on a performance.

And it's because Reeve and Cain approached the role differently. Reeve played it as Superman is the person and Clark is the mask. Cain played it as Clark is the person and Superman is the mask.

Well, also, Cain was cast as Clark Kent, with the intention that the character would play charmingly against Lois; the producers decided to emphasis Superman later in the process. Reeve auditioned as Superman; he developed his Casper Milquetoast version of Kent pretty much on his own from the scripted page. TPTB were probably looking for different qualities in each case.

Yes, I do: quality. Substance. Creativity. Things that have had a little thought, education and research put into them, and that require a little thought, education and research to get the most out of them.

Precisely, Cain as Clark "acting" as Superman, which is what I meant in "trying to put on a performance."

In this case, Superman was the secret identity so to speak. And I think Cain did a marvelous job at playing Clark, especially in the first season when the scripts emphasized more of the romantic tug-of-war between Clark and Lois.

Cain's Clark really got under the skin of Lois, which she couldn't stand or admit she liked. But, then again, even the Casper Milquetoast version got under the skin of Lois (in both the comics and the movies).

I've always said that Lois was really in love with Clark, not Superman, and that her ego just couldn't allow her to admit it.

It is really evident in the 1970's storyline "Who Took the Super Out of Superman!"

I've heard that Jor-El and Jonathan have a big fight over which of them was the worse Robin Hood.

You gentlemen make a good point. I always thought Cain was a darn fine Clark Kent. Never liked his Superman much. But you gentlemen have articulated why Cain's Superman never rang true to me.

So you value creativity but you want then to do it the same way they've always been doing it.

Interesting.

Compared to Crowe, Costner was Errol "Fucking" Flynn.

I know the superman fanbase has big mixed feelings over Smallville but just watched the finale and I have to admit the show has made me more of a superman fan than ever before and I cannot wait for the movie
