Has written.
I'm think the last time he wrote some action music that wasn't Williams-generic was in his score for Jurassic Park: The Lost World

huh doubled.

The Superman theme probably is the most recognisable movie theme ever!
Indeed it is.
It's a fantastic piece of music.

Still, Williams as the composer is hardly an inspired choice - nowadays.

It's intersting to see a defense of the rubbery looking suit by some in this thread who bashed the first looks of Thor and cast in costume.

Character Bias??

Well, no Jor-El design really evokes a "scientist" feel. His traditional Silver Age costume makes him look like a superhero, his Post-Crisis and Movie costumes make him look like some kind of monk or something.

I like it. It's not what you'd expect, and that's not a bad thing. Kind of looks like a nobleman from the Middle Ages or something. Maybe they're going for a Medieval look for Krypton instead of an Ice Age look. And yes, these costumes (including the 'rubber' aspect) always look better on film.

Looks like something that was designed for the "WITCHBLADE or THE DARKNESS comic books and NOT Superman......

Marlon Brando's costume looked nothing like what was in the comic either. Neither did Krypton or the Fortress of Solitude for that matter.

I think by now everyone should know better than that.
From Iron Man to Thor many have been whining about the rubber look of the suits in pictures only to have it end up looking just fine in the movies.

Good points! It will be very interesting to see how this looks in the finished movie.

Besides, in the first movie I think Jor-El was a politician before he was a scientist, since he was on the main Kryptonian council and sentencing Phantom Zone criminals to justice.

With Crowe, he probably had some fisticuffs thrown in to his scripts. JUST what everyone loves...ACTION!

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

Jor-El is the head of the House of El and had a seat on the Kryptonian Council. The head of the house seems to have a seat on the Council. I've always found it interesting that the Council had Jor-El prosecute Zod, Non, and Ursa though at their trial.

Yeah! We need more of a introspective film with limited action, like how Superman Returns was, cuz everybody LOVED that!

Action should not be in a movie based on a character who first appeared in ACTION Comics!!!

^ I liked SR very much myself, but even I can't deny that the film wasn't as warmly received by moviegoers and fans.

Actually, fans shouldn't count since they mostly hate everything.
