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

I'm guessing not legit at all given that it is IMDB. Film Music Reporter hasn't reported that yet or any of the other sites I use for score information. It would be very cool though, and perhaps Snyder's biggest coup.

^ He is in talks to compose "The Amazing Spider-Man" not "Man of Steel". The composing situation on MOS has been quiet. I would have thought we would have got an announcement by now but perhaps after principal is completed in Jan.

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

Some guy supposedly has seen concept art for Jor-El's look and suit

I had a chance to see some concept art for Russell Crowe’s Jor-El in Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel.” Let me start of by saying that it looks NOTHING like Brando’s version of Superman’s daddy.
Jor-El is wearing a goldish/white armored suit that looks almost like the one in the video game Halo. The suit has the traditional “S” is the middle of his chest and it blends in with the color scheme of the suit. Jor-EL looks more like a soldier than a scientist.
Crowe’s head is completely exposed and HE LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE STAR WARS EPISODE 2’s Obi-Wan with the beard and hair. The only difference is that Crowe’s hair looks darker. If I didn’t know that Crowe was cast for the part I would have sworn it was Ewan McGregor.

^Kind of interesting because Crowe was considered for Obi-Wan.

^ Indeed. You learn something new every day.

Of course, given that Obi-Wan gets into fights in bars in ANH and AOTC, Crowe would be a pretty obvious choice, come to think of it...

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

That is an interesting description of Jor-El's armour if it is true...kind of a regal warrior look they seem to be going which is interesting. I really can't wait to start seeing concept art work in the coming months as well as a poster! We're probably a ways a way from our first teaser poster.

^ Sounds not unlike the Krptonian battle armour that's appeared in the comics.

Indeed. That's precisely what I was thinking when I read the description. Oooh my anticipation for this film continues to increase.

Just hope it's not green and purple battle armor.

Then again, a lot of Superman's villains would have been hard to pull off, effects-wise, in the early 80s.
How? I think a lot of 80s films had decent effects, given the computing power at the time. Maybe Bizarro, with Christopher Reeve playing a triple role, could have worked. The prosthetics of the time could have pulled it off. Reeve had the acting skills to do it, that I don't doubt.

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

What is the plot of the movie? Have any details been released?

Whether this new Zod would hold a candle to Terence Stamp, well if he does all the good. Stamp's aristocratic/aloof performance made it key IMO.
