Love that Diane Lane!
It's been a while since I've seen you around here. Good to see a familiar face.
Feelings mutual, JA. I started dropping out last year to avoid spoilers when the big summer movies came out. Then I started spending more time at other sites. From here on I plan to be current with everything. The debut of the new Man of Steel trailer was enough incentive.

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

Anyone who thinks that movies not following the "let's have fun/fun/fun" stereotype in marketing will fail during the summer season should not give up their day jobs - unless those jobs are in marketing, in which case they ought to retrain.

You know what movie had an awesome trailer?
Most good, successful movies - but thanks anyway.

Meh. I don't think the film will fail either financially or critically. It will most likely be a great film that does what it says out to do quite well. I'm just not interested in seeing what the film is interested in showing.

So you are interested in seeing the new Star Trek film?

Sorry.

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

Since general Zod is the only nemesis truly worthy of Superman this will be good.
It has always been Superman's gentle nature that stopped him from breaking Lex Luthors neck in about 1.3 seconds.

But come on the US Army arresting Superman.....please.

Yeah, it will be nice to see a villain who is Superman's equal for a change. The only real fight we've had in the films up to this point has been Superman vs. Nuclear Man. And The Quest for Peace getting any credit is just wrong.

I'm assuming that this is by choice. Back to that gentle nature you referred to. What else is he going to do, go to war with the US?

Take that, Brainiac, Doomsday, Darkseid, Manchester Black, Bizarro, Eradicator, Gog, Cyborg Superman, Imperiex, Jax-Ur, Mongul, Atomic Skull, Parasite, Metallo and Mr. Mxyzptlk.

The one where General Zod takes over the Earth while Superman hangs out at home and goes for a drink? Yeah, I've seen it. They had a small fight in Metropolis (which was pretty much just flying around the city), but for the most part they barely interacted. I just want to see Superman slug it out on the big screen with someone who can take it.

I am not talking about TV shows or the comics, I am talking about the major Hollywood movies about superman, except for Zod and his crew, the villians have been weak.
