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

Amy Adams is not a bad, bad idea. She was an inspired choice and a multiple time Oscar nominee. It is okay if you dislike the actress but to merely dismiss her and declare she's not glamorous is silly to me. Much like it is silly that she is an Old Hag as I think Yoda has mentioned a couple of times. I still don't understand how one can say Amy Adams is not hot.

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

Every bit of news that has come out about production on this film has me seriously doubting my wanting to see it.
Mostly due to the pic of the costume and appearrance of Caville.
Although he does look the part,with the square jaw and facial features, I have been looking at that costume and the more I look at it the more I am disliking it Except for the cape of course. (thank god it at least goes past the back of his knees!)
And the garrish chest symbol....I always hated the golden age version. Perhaps in the film we can call his Kryptonian name: Kal-L?

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

Forthcoming films regarding two of my favourite characters---Superman and Spider-Man respectively---and I'm can't find myself getting hyped or even much interested about either of them.

Nolan's Batman on the other hand has really gotten me eager to see it.

Of course, a lot has to do with expectation and past experience. Nolan is two-for-two and so far he seems to be sticking to his proven successful approach. Live-action Superman has been bust and hit-and-miss since 1978. I will go so far as to say I'm cautiously optimistic for Man Of Steel, but I'm far from sold yet. And at this point I have zero interest in the forthcoming Spidey film after really enjoying Raimi's version (even if #3 could have been better).

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

"Man of Steel" starts filming in Vancouver the middle of next month. I'm gonna try and see if I can pull off a Jackson Archer Don't think there will be any cool documentary but I'll see if I can get some photos.

I try to read ComicBookMovie...and Jesus! The writers and commenters there make the boobs at AintItCool sound like combinations of Einstein and Cary Grant by comparison.

^ Yes. It's not a very good website. They've had a lot of things wrong, or simply made up stuff in the past.

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

I was very dubious about this movie when it was announced and based on early descriptions of the approach being taken. However, every bit of news - casting, visuals, the synopsis and so on - has gotten me more and more interested. I'm quite looking forward to it now.

The only possible explanation I can come up with is "I just don't like white women." And that's racist.

I'm with you there.
I know it's a very different kind of movie, but I thought she was great in Enchanted. IMO it takes a really talented actress to pull off a role like that, and manage to make her believable (well as believable as a character like that can be) and not annoying. If a less talented actress had played Giselle, then the movie would have been a disaster.

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

Maybe it's the red hair, but I can easily see her playing the same kind of sweet but feisty Lois that Noel Neill did.

Hopefully this Lois won't turn into the same gooey eyed schoolgirl at the first sight of Superman though. It would be nice to see her start out a bit more intrigued or skeptical at first, and let the interest build a bit more gradually.

BTW, I know this isn't the art forum, but here's a Cavill sculpt I'm working on if anyone wants to see. I realize the likeness still has a ways to go.

Darn, after the last movie I was kind of missing the shield on the back.
