Re: 7 Things That Must Be In MAN OF STEEL 2

I'm all for Luthor as a businessman; that's my favorite version of him. That said, the "must" list is bullshit and I don't give a fuck.

But then, the article is by Devin Faraci, who's not worth shit as a writer, reviewer...or thinker.

Brainiac Attacks! Or a Luthor, Brainiac team up. I think with most of the go get'em action out of the way in the first film. They can slow the sequel down and focus on Supes role on Earth.

Funny. That is the title of what is widely to be considered the WORST animated Superman movie.

I wish they'd stop calling him "Cal."

Call him Superman in the film. Damn it.

Also, for a title, one without Superman in the title, I'd go with The Last Son of Krypton.

I think it's mostly Jor-El and Zod and the other Kryptonians who call him Kal, which makes sense to me. Why would they call him "Superman"--especially when he isn't known to the world by that name yet?

Well, in Superman 2, They called him Superman, but their tone was patronizing. When they weren't calling him that they would call him "The son of Jor-El."

I wish they'd at least call him Kal-El. "Kal" makes me think I'm watching Titanic.

But, of course, Superman was already world-famous and a household name by the time SUPERMAN II takes place.

This time around, Clark hasn't even revealed himself to the world at the point Zod shows up demanding that Earth turn over "Kal-El."

MoS was fantastic. But to make MoS2 truly superb, it only needs one thing:

Christopher Walken.

Admit it. You know it.
Well, Luthor hasn't been cast yet....

You have a problem distinguishing between two characters in different films that have the same name?

Actually, I wasn't thinking of any role in particular. Simply that Walken should be in the next movie.

Heck, he should be in every movie...

I KNOW!! Gawd that film was horrible. Lol I just like the name because it rhymes. That and Brainiac i consider Superman's nemesis. While the role of archenemy i delegate to Luthor.

Amen. Faraci is one of the biggest pieces of shit on the internet.

This is why I used the rolleyes when describing the article in question.

I really wish that these bloggers would try and write their own scripts, but many of them are just lazy people who love to armchair quarterback and backseat drive and think that they know something, when in fact, they know nothing and are just wasting time.

I think Lex will be a businessman in the next movie. When I was watching MOS, I spotted a sign saying "LexCorp" on a tank trailer before it blew up.
