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

For me, Singer's film inadvertently highlighted what increasingly feels like an inherent problem with the basic concept of the character. The price for his masquerade at his "day job" is that the whole time he's pretending to be a reporter there are people all over the place who need saving and it's just tough luck.

Here are three videos focusing on Superman's powers (it's mostly footage we've seen before from the movie, but there's some commentary from the cast and filmmakers and there's a really good new shot in the flight video that's clearly inspired by Superman: Birthright):

Well he still has to be able to learn about disasters and criminal activity in the world first, before he can put a stop to it. And it probably makes it easier to prioritize things and focus on the more crucial problems first before the standard bank robberies and car accidents.

Although it was probably a bit easier to buy on, say, the old Adventures of Superman series-- when Superman's powers were a bit more limited, there was no information age yet, and it was obvious he actually NEEDED the reporter job in order to hear about stuff.

Whatever the incarnation or the limits of his abilities, he can't and shouldn't be everywhere solving everyone's problems, great and small; and his system has always been that he focuses more on his home city, but travels abroad for the bigger stuff that comes to his attention. If something smaller comes to his attention and he's able to help, he will, but he doesn't scour the globe looking for every cat stuck in a tree.

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

Not even Superman can save everyone. I think this only humanizes him even more, this probably weighs on Clark's thoughts everyday. Even he knows that he can't save everyone even as powerful as he is. I wouldn't call it an "inherent problem"...I'd call it part of his human upbringing and perhaps even an endearing character trait. Despite all that tremendous power he still can't save everyone.

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

I can't remember where I saw the story, but a few days back I found a page that linked to this story on StyleBistro which says that Warby Parker will be selling glasses "inspired by" Man of Steel. It's not a 100% confirmation, but it does seem a lot more likely that he will wear glasses somewhere in the movie.

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

Zack Snyder told Empire that the running time is 130 minutes, but WB has emailed some details about the film to press outlets and stated that the running time is 143 minutes. Snyder may have been giving an approximate running time excluding credits.

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

After STiD opens this will be my next highly in demand movie to see. There are a few I'm interested in, but not that will have me itching to get to the theater.

Like IM3 I've all but stopped checking into the thread, the hater tirade for endless pages made it easy to stay out, but I'm going, I'm stoked. Time to trim back my exposure, save stuff for the film.

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

Ever since I was a kid, Star Trek and Superman have been my two favorite things, so needless to say this is a pretty exciting year for me.

Same here. I have friends who hate Superman, think he's overpowered, doesn't speak to our time period, etc., but I'll always be a fan of Big Blue!

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

Hmm, for whatever it's worth, I was just listening to a podcast with Adam Savage (the Mythbusters guy) and he mentioned that a friend of his saw MOS and said it was "the best superhero movie he's ever seen."
