^ I remember overhearing someone saying that "'im 'rry" is playing the Riddler in the new Batman film' and thinking that at last Tim was getting his big break! Of course, it was Jim Carrey, not Tim Curry - though I wasn't too disappointed in that choice either.
Kind of a similar thing happened to me with the first film. Someone overheard me talking about the casting of Michael Keaton and said "he'll make a great Joker."

I always thought that Ray Liotta (Goodfellas) would have made a great Joker.
The 1989 film's Screenwriter Sam Hamm actually said the same thing. I think Liotta might have actually been in the short list, along with Curry, of guys to be considerd if Nicholson turned it down.

Anyone want to speculate when we'll see footage from the film? I read something from last month saying that DC won't show the first trailer for six months...which would be sometime around comic con. I think they'll have a strong presence at SDCC this year. I've read a lot of thoughts from my friends who think the teaser will be attached with "The Dark Knight Rises" which makes sense. Production wraps up here in Vancouver in two weeks. I expect though we could get a teaser poster in the next couple of months. Not sure why I think that but that's just a gut feeling. We'll probably hear about who will compose in that time frame. I don't think it will be Tyler Bates as he's got a couple of projects already for 2012 he is working on.
I am hoping around the release of Dark Knight Rises we'll see a trailer.

Has principle photography ended for the movie yet?

I say Warners should do a double tap to the main core audience.
A minute to minute 15 sec teaser with perhaps all of 20-30 seconds of that with actual footage. Do the black screen with voice over showing perhaps silhouettes.

Then at TDKR show the first 2min+ full of footage trailer.

Well, since the movie won't come out until June 2013, which is still a year and a half away, I'd say it makes more sense to attach the first teaser to TDKR and release the first real trailer with The Hobbit.

80s Jeff Goldblum would have made a good Joker. Tall, thin and has a big smile. As for Luthor, Alfred Molina with his head shaved is a dead ringer for the 1950s comics Luthor.

I'll give the new one with Henry Cavill a chance, but after seeing the Brandon Routh film, I'm not very optimistic.

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

The two movies, other than being about Superman, have virtually nothing in common. So there's no reason why to think the previous movie would have any impact on this one.

I mean, you didn't judge "Batman Begins" based on what "Batman and Robin" was like, did you?

Because frankly, Hollyweird has run out of any good ideas. And I didn't like any of the Batman films to be honest.

Using "Hollyweird" and whining about the "lack of ideas" pretty much negates what ever point you're trying to make.

Hollywood is Hollywood. Its always been a mixed of good ideas and bad ideas. Only nostalgia lets us think it was better in the old days. Its no "weirder" than it was back then either. "Hollyweird" just isn't that clever a play on words.

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

So pengbuzz is not optimistic about "Man of Steel" not because he didn't like "Superman Returns" but because hollywood has "run out of ideas"? I thought the answer was going to be because he didn't like "Superman Returns". That would have been understandable.

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

I didn't like superman returns and I don't think Hollywood has any new ideas. Sorry if I offended folks' sensibilities here, but when it is my money buying the movie ticket, I reserve the right to like what I like. And in the last few years, Hollywood hasn't had anything good; to say it's "nostalgia" is to maintain the "always has been always will be" mindset.


So with that, I will step out of this thread; if I wanted to get jumped for stating my honest opinion, I'd go sign up on a video gamers' forum.
