Pretty crazy since next year will also be a big year with TDKR and Man of Steel.

The Dark Knight Rises will already be out by the time comic con happens.

True, but Nolan never goes to SDCC anyway (the WhySoSerious.com ARG for The Dark Knight was done during the 2007 convention, but not as part of the actual programming, and that was handled by an outside company), and since The Man of Steel doesn't even begin shooting until August, there wouldn't be anything to show in the third week of July this year.

I only have the first season on dvd. It is such a shame that they got rid of Lex as a main character after season one.
It wasn't so much that TPTB got rid of him, but the actor wanted out due to the amount of traveling he did for the show (he lived in New York and the show taped in LA).

I thought when they killed him off at the end of Season 1 that they'd bring him back as a younger, sexier clone. Basically the Lex Luthor II storyline. I don't know why the didn't. They could have kept their main villain AND it would have fit in perfectly with the essential sexiness of the show.

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

Still one of my favorite Superman moments in any medium. Does anyone recall which episode this was from? I want to say it was a Mark Evanier-written episode, but I'm not positive if that's right.

Pretty sure it's one of the first episodes, if not the first.

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

I love those little moments...when Clark has fun and is playing around with Lois who just rejects the notion out of sheer implausibility in her eyes.

Speaking of Lois and Clark...while we're on the topic. I remember the hype and build up to Clark telling Lois his secret. That show handled it brilliantly I thought. It was an event. I remember my parents throwing a party at the time and all the guests joined me as I was watching the episode and clapped when it happened. That's how much of an impact that series had at the time. "Smallville" on the other hand had nothing but tease moments it seemed.

According to TVTropes, it was the episode "The Main Man", which introduced Lobo. It was written by Paul Dini.

Really? I remember it being, while cute, somewhat anti-climatic with no buildup. Clark asks her to marry him (with seemingly no intention to tell the secret yet). Season break. Lois response with an upset "Who's asking. Clark or Superman?" Opening credits.

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

The casting chatter has died down again. I was expecting some news but apparently it's gone quiet again. This article suggests that the production will indeed be shooting in Vancouver which surprises me because I thought Alberta had been selected a few months ago.

"Man of Steel" Production Sheet?

If true the whole "funeral" thing has me worried about Pa Kent.

^ I don't think Kevin Costner's part was meant to be a big one anyway to be honest Jet. That's very interesting. Once again the Africa plot seems to be adapted from "Birthright". I like the production title for the movie if that is what it is
