Very cool. I might have to download this one when the e-book comes out.

Congratulations!

The teaser trailer was one of the best I've seen in recent memory. And I am no fan of Superman.

Hopefully there are only a few chapters about fishing.

Re: OT: Greg Cox writing Man of Steel Novelization

Have to admit that the DC geography nut - still lurking inside this skull of mine, despite everything in recent months - will be interested to see what the production artists come up with for this new version of Metropolis...

Metropolis consists of Chicago and Vancouver exteriors I believe, mostly Chicago. I wouldn't be surprised if Snyder goes for a "timeless" look for the city.

Certainly, there are buildings from both real-world cities that wouldn't look out of place in Metropolis.

My guess is Krypton would be in Iceland or Antartica..

We do need some serious information. BRING ME COX. I'll hold him ya'll tickle him until we tells us how Superman grows a beard and what kind of kryptonian razor can shave him clean.

John Byrne explained that 26 years ago in Superman: The Man of Steel #4. Here are the relevant panels, though unfortunately I couldn't find them in a larger size than this:

Congratulations, Greg! Sounds like a great gig. I won't ask if you work only from a script or if you get to see the film.

Where are you getting that? If you're going from the "Synopsis" page there, you seem to be extrapolating that from a single word, "is," which in context seems to be a typo for "was" (since the sentence starts out saying "years ago").
As a president once said "It depends what the meaning of the word 'is' is."

I was halfway through Smallville on DVD when this question occurred to me. I googled and found this explanation, but reflected eye-beams seems way too conveluted IMO.

A little later, I saw Hancock lather up his face and rake down it with his fingernails to shave, I thought, "That's it!" - a far simpler solution.

But then... how do they do their nails??

^ I suppose they chew them. But that would really suck when it's time to do toenails.
