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

If this movie does well, we'll get an "established Superman" story with the next one as we did in Superman II, Superman III and Superman IV.

Geez, people, as Admiral_Young has already noted the mechanics of this stuff are pretty obvious.

Plus, the previous reboot (Superman Returns) started with an established Superman.

I liked the Kevin Smith script when it came to that. No origin story. Just Superman from the start.
I would have liked a movie that started off in that vein. I've used this analogy before, but to use it again, I'd have taken the Goldeneye route, not the Casino Royale one.

But look at it from a Hollywood perspective. Batman Begins, Casino Royale - reboots from the start of succesful franchises, leading to new successful franchises. Superman Returns - not so much. Continuation that underperformed. That's why we're getting a reboot of Superman and a new origin story.

As someone else pointed out, Spider-man is being re-booted, with a new telling of an origin story last seen on the big screen less than a decade ago, as opposed to Superman's 30-something origin movie. So this is hardly an unreasonable way to relaunch The Man Of Steel.

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

I doubt the studio decided on this being a reboot simply because of the performance of SR. Most likely Nolan simply came to them with his story idea, and they decided they'd be stupid to say no to him.

I asked him if he knew where Christopher Nolan was.

The Kevin Smith script unfortunately was flawed due to Jon Peters constant inane suggestions. Kevin basically had to alter the Superman story he really wanted to tell.

Maybe one day we will get an established Superman story. The first X-Men movie wasn't an origin movie so there are examples. It's also a matter of what kind of story the studio wants told. I'm guessing the starting from scratch mentality has to do with the critical back lash "Superman Returns" got.
I remember Smith complaining about Peters incessantly demanding a giant spider, it was funny and the guy comes off as really dumb, but I always sort of took that with a grain of salt.

I mean, iirc, the villain was Brainiac, and there's no law that says Brainiac has to look like a certain thing. (Except the color magenta should be involved.)

It's weird to finally see a photo of him, because--I realize now--that for years I've been picturing Zack Snyder as Zack Morris.

I've seen him in the past and he always reminded me of Seth Meyers from SNL Weekend Update, but that picture he look like Mark Ruffalo. I think it's the 5 O'clock shadow.

I suppose I'm one of the closest, so I'll go. Fuck. I was going to use that money for hookers and blow.

We all know he's got a 100 ft restraining order from Nolan.






Coke Zero and 7 eleven product placement?

Yea, on the Commentary opening for Dawn of the Dead, he looks quite a bit like Seth Meyers. He definitely looks older now
