I like Chloe Moretz, but there are better choices for Supergirl.

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

Who are Fiennes and Law supposed to be? Lex and Brainiac respectively?

ETA: Or Fiennes Zor-El maybe?

The Prequel tie in comic plays fast and light with the mythos, but it works with the new reality of Superman.

That kinda works, although I'd be perfectly fine with just Man of Steel II.

I'm so over this need by the studios to give every sequel a different title. Everyone already realizes it's a sequel; you're not fooling anybody! Lol

Or perhaps . . .

Dr. No, From Russia with Love, Goldfinger, Thunderball, You Only Live Twice, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Diamonds are Forever, Live and Let Die, The Man with the Golden Gun, The Spy Who Loved Me, Moonraker, For Your Eyes Only, Octopussy, A View to a Kill, The Living Daylights, License to Kill, Goldeneye, Tomorrow Never Dies, The World is Not Enough, Die Another Day, Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall . . . .

Seriously, the numbered sequel thing is a relatively new trend that caught on in the eighties or so. Before then, sequels had actual titles: Bride of Frankenstein, Tarzan's New York Adventure, Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe, Taste the Blood of Dracula, Godzilla vs. the Thing, etc.

Exactly. It wasn't until around the time films like Godfather Part 2 came around that numbered sequels started popping up more and more.

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

I saw the movie this morning and loved it.
As for the sequel, I would love to see them bring in Lex as a behind the scenes manipulator working with someone like Brainiac or Metallo.
Or what about Parasite as a villain? That's someone I don't think we've ever seen in live action before, and who could lead to some spectacular visual effects sequences.

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

Goyer was asked about whether Luthor might have an interest in studying Zod's corpse, and replied that he had no comment on that.

Given the way this movie was written and the history of the creators I think you can rely upon the implications of a lot of the events in this movie being taken into account next time around.

Thanks! It's always great to hear from a satisfied reader.

Hope you like the Man of Steel book, too!

Hey Greg, have you seen the movie yet? Are there any scenes in the book that didn't make the final cut in theatres?

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

I predict the sequel will be a Luthor/Brainiac team up. There were subtle hints regarding Brainiac in the film, and I could imagine Lex up in his tower watching the battle of Metropolis unfold. He'll have an enormous amount of fodder against Superman this time. The invasion plot was very smart, because now at least Lex has a near ironclad excuse for his agenda against Superman. Rather than just simply hating him.

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

I loved the movie. I wondered though if they pushed the fight scenes so far that they are going to have a hard time topping them in sequels. Alien invasion. Fighting someone of equal powers. An Apokolips invasion, really fighting any villain. Parasite with Superman's powers would be similar to Zod. Fighting the metallic tentacles of the World builder is similar to fighting robots.

I am not at all saying there should not have had huge fight scenes. Its just that it keep escalating so much they are going to be clever to top it so its not repetitive.
