I say the opposite.

Of course I'm of the opinion that it was Doc Manhattan's shlong that drew them to the material, but that's neither here nor there...
That would be the "Anthony Weiner system of attracting women and influencing people?"

Wouldn't that then completely discredit the claim that the comic was unfilmable?
You know what else is "unfilmable?"

Harry Potter. Gone With The Wind.
Exactly my point. The fact they were able to make a movie that follows the source material w/o drastic/radical changes to the storyline/characters indicates that the material is filmable. Whether you line the adaptation is, of course, another matter entirely.

First set pics? The site below seems to think so, but they're nothing too exciting.

Not sure what the final result will be, but it's still pretty cool to know that another Superman movie is about to start filming.

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

Ahhh the final phases of pre-production are coming to an end and filming is about to start! Still curious that Lex hasn't been cast yet. I guess he won't be in the film? There were rumors to except three characters to be cast after the Julie Ormond story broke but I guess those were just rumors.

Also, as far as we know, much of the supporting cast such as Perry and Jimmy haven't been cast if, of course, they are in it.

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

^ That's true. Only Lois has been cast from the Planet. I'm wondering if Snyder will be doing casting during production like Nolan has been for "The Dark Knight Rises". All the main casting seems to have been done for both films prior to production.

^ I wonder also if like Batman Begins, they're saving the best-known villain in that hero's gallery - then The Joker, now Lex - for the sequel.

^ If the rumors are true that the plot will be about Clark "finding" himself and be a personal discovery film before heading to Metropolis then perhaps they are indeed saving Lex for a sequel. Perhaps Lex not being in the film (as of now) will satisfy those fans tired of seeing him all the time.

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

I don't know if I like the rumored direction of the film with Clark finding himself. I know it can make for an interesting character piece, but, generally, I associate that theme with "moodiness" and "melodramatic angst". While those elements worked to varying degrees in Smallville and Superman Returns, I was hoping to see something different.

Oh well, I'm sure it will be fine. It's Superman. How bad can it be?

^ I'm guessing something like Batman Begins, with the first half being our hero 'finding himself', the second half returning home to confront his destiny.

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

With David Goyer and Jonah Nolan writing the screenplay I have always suspected that we would get a similar story structure to "Man of Steel" that was used for "Batman Begins".

^Which is somewhat amusing as the structure of Batman Begins was modeled on the structure of Superman: The Movie.

Lex not in eh? That sucks. I thought he would have been pretty important for him to be in. Maybe not front and center but more like as a character in the background built up to be a major player later on in a sequel.
