I'd be surprised if the character wasn't in the movie.

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

Judging by the trailers, this movie looks to be kick ass and I can't wait to see it!!

Nobody can beat Christopher Reeve for that iconic look, but Henry Cavill looks like he'll play Supes as more of a working man who happens to have superpowers.

Can't wait to see it from that angle!

Working man with superpowers is how I would describe Dean Cain's take on the character. If Cavill is similar I will be very happy.

I loved Dean Cain as Clark. I think he nailed the Clark role dead on. I wasn't impressed with his Superman though.

I let it slide mostly because that series was more of a romantic action comedy, and the chemistry between Dean Cain and Terri Hatcher was incredible to watch. I was shocked to see that these two weren't actually dating, or interested in each other in real life. They certainly had the acting chops to show genuine interest on screen.

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

There are rumors that Dean and Teri really were involved at some point during the making of the show. She was married for most of its run, so who knows if its true or not. If it was they did not want it getting out. There is a segment of L&C fandom who are stilling hoping they end up together in real life.

I do not agree with the criticism Cain got as Superman. The idea the show had was that Clark was his real personality. So as Superman he was aloof and unconformable with the attention he got. He wanted to do good but not be a celebrity. It reminded me how many actors are uncomfortable when they have to do interviews and public appearances. But are completely different when performing. Hence the idea of him being a working man with powers. Like real life heroes, cops and soliders, who down play the praise they get by saying they were just doing their job.

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

A post-credits scene has been announced, and it's intended to set up the spin-off movie "Girl of Steel"!

According to Variety, Superman's cousin Kara Zor-El (aka Supergirl) will make a post-credits cameo appearance at the end of "Man of Steel", forshadowing the announcement of a new Supergirl movie which will tie into the same universe.

Allegedly set to go into production later this year, the Supergirl movie, tentatively titled "Girl of Steel" will be an origin story for the lost daughter of Krypton, finishing up with her appearance on Earth as seen in the sequence set to be included at the end of "Man of Steel".


"Girl of Steel" will reportedly see Kara start out as a teenager on Krypton, who decides to appear in films of a salacious nature to alleviate her boredom. Zor-El, her father, finds out about her raunchy exploitations and decides to ground his daughter by sending her temporarily into the Phantom Zone. It is during this period that Krypton is destroyed, and Kara, alone in the Phantom Zone with just her trusty robotic-cat Streaky for company, must find her way out of the ghostly prison or be lost forever.

I'm willing to bet that's not an April fools joke but the actual leaked synopsis of the MoS porn parody.

I was about to say the only way a "Girl of Steel" movie works is if Superman at least shows up for a cameo sometime during the movie, until the end of your post lol.

The first year of Lois & Clark was my second-favorite TV version of Superman - childhood attachment to George Reeves's portrayal is too hard to overcome, but otherwise no other version has come close to Cain and Hatcher.

It would have been impossible to do a modern prime time Superman TV series with any sophistication or adult appeal at all prior to Byrne's reboot. Superman-is-Clark-in-disguise is the only way that Supes makes any plausible psychological sense at all when you think about it. I know Tarantino has a different idea, but I think he's too fond of the 1978 movie.

I filter Bill's observation there through the lens of his being a cold-blooded killer.
