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

Everything that I've seen about the film continues to excite me. In fact...I'm even more excited that I have been about it. I can't wait to hear what Hans has come up with score wise as well.

I'm very stoked to see this movie,but I have to admit I am having a hard time getting used to the suit. Still, if they can give me a great Superman movie then I won't really care so much.

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

I kinda like the idea of the engineered Kryptonians, and the fact that even among his own people Superman would be considered a bit of an outsider for being born "natural."

It also sets up the possibility that he maybe isn't quite as powerful and advanced as Zod and Faora, and has to rely more on his wits and instincts to defeat them.

^As others have pointed out, yes. Those muscle/shoulders are all Cavill. There may be some lining in the suit to help define the "six pack" and some of the veining on the muscles. But the rest of it is his physique.

I am adding Pacific Rim to that list but these are the three movies I really want to see. Sumerman and Star Trek are tied for my number one most anticipated movie.

Definitely liking what I'm reading and seeing.
EDIT: I'm glad to see that they are willing to put their own spin on things, rather than just giving us a straight update of stuff we've already seen before.

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

I wonder if he'll have any of his vision based powers? Macro/micro I could see, but I think it would be in line with this version if he didn't have heat or x-ray vision.

I'm expecting to see heat vision. I think Cavil teased shaving at comic con last summer IIRC, I think when he was asked a question about Clark's beard in the film.

I believe there have been reports of a fight scene where he uses heat vision.

Modern creators are way too in love with Superman using his heat vision like a laser gun to not have it in the movie.

I want to see him use his heat vision like a machine gun. Slaughter thousands of hum -- robots -- with his laser eyes. Pew pew pew!

Actually I kinda like that effect as well. At least in the cartoons. I'm not sure it would fit well with their movie's more realistic take though.
