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

General Zod has a connection to Krypton and he has a human face, so it makes sense to revisit him for this. I think Brainiac is a bit of an outlandish villain to be honest, and the filmmakers may have thought using Zod for the first go around might have been beneficial so they could potentially set-up a more alien villain like Brainiac.

I have a feeling we'll get Luthor and Brainiac in the sequel (if we get a sequel - but I have a feeling we will) and then probably Metallo or someone along those lines for the third film, however he seems kind of weak for the third entry. It might be better to have Luthor and Metallo in the sequel and then save Brainiac for the third. I'm just thinking aloud, of course.

Either way, they are clearly establishing a mythology, like Marc Webb did with The Amazing Spider-Man by introducing OsCorp in the first film and then introducing Norman and Harry Osborn in the sequel. Like Admiral_Young said, we'll probably get mentions of LexCorp in Man of Steel and then the filmmakers will likely build on that for the sequel(s).

Great. A badass Superman. Just what we needed.
And so help me, the first person to mention 1939...

I`m really liking that first pic. Superman looks very unhappy, not something you want to see.

I started reading Superman in the 80s when Byrne took over so I am not much of a fan of the bumbling fool version of Clark Kent. I much prefer the calm, assertive, and confident Clark Kent much more.
I started reading Superman in the 1950s, but I also prefer Byrne's rebooted version of Clark and the other characters - they're a little more like human beings than the previous incarnations.

It's Byrne's reboot that made a show like Lois And Clark possible - which is a good thing, even if only the first season was worth watching.
Props to John Shea - Best Luthor there's been. It's a shame his performance isn't more widely acknowledged.

Yeah, I don't get it. How could a Superman fan not want to see him looking badass in a movie?

Reeve's stern "Would you care to step outside?" to Zod in SII is one of my all-time favorite superhero moments.

It was a classic line.

Donner was dumb to change it in his director's cut.

You have no idea how desperate WB must be right now.

It's sink or swim time for them to get this franchise right and have it be successful

We all know how well a neutured Superman did in 2006

The biggest complaint from "Superman returns" was the lack of action.

People wanted superman to punch something!

And for the last ten years we had a mopey superman wannabe on tv


So you'll forgive us if we want a more proactive Superman.

If they wanted to go for more obscure villains, they could always try for the Eradicator instead of Brainiac, or Conduit.

The LAST thing Warners wants is an obscure villain. They want a new superhero franchise to rival Marvel's Avengers shared universe films.

Most of the Marvel movie villains were pretty obscure guys until the movies used them.

Hell, Nolan used villains the public weren't usually aware of (Ra's Al Ghul, Talia, Scarecrow, even Bane to an extent).
