I didn't think it was that bad. Equal with Superman 3 IMO.

What kind of weights does a Kryptonian need to push to get these muscles?
If one were to assume he were genetically predisposed to have such a build, and had what amounts to steroids naturally produced in his body due to being supercharged by the yellow sun, weights wouldn't be even be necessary. This would be especially true if Kryptonians don't have an equivalent to our bodies' system of storing energy as fat due to their metabolism being at least partially solar powered.

Under a red sun, a lot. Under a yellow sun, it wouldn't matter.

The Clark/Superman thing could be solved by having Superman rush in and rush out of the action, giving nobody time to take a closer look at him or even think about taking a closer look at him.
I'm "the one you least suspect" hasn't worn thin. Even though Clark has a different personality to Superman, come on their both the same height, same facial features, even very similar vocal patterns lol...
Watch the scene in Superman where he decides to tell Lois the truth. He goes from Clark to Superman and back to Clarin in under a minute by removing his glasses and changing his posture. Chris Reeve SOLD that movie on that one moment.

It's not even that I disagree, but if I hear that one more time I think I'll set myself on fire.

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

Reeve's Clark was fun to watch...for a couple of scenes. His comedic value was very much a one-note thing that quickly became tiredly repetitious, and only really interesting in the couple of serious moments when Supes' underlying personality would peek through the charade.

Everybody and his mother knows the origin of Superman, but since it has Zod it would be good to see him say "you will kneel before me! if not you, then one day, your heirs!!"
Hopefully not Kal's chest heirs.

So is it safe to say that the highlights of this thread so far are:

-Clark's hair
-No Underoos
-Clark's chest hair
-Amy Adams is OLD! Old I tells ya!

Am I missing something?

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

The thing about the Clark/Superman nobody-sees-through-the-disguise-thing is, we, the audience, know it, of course. But why would anyone in-universe think Superman had a secret identity? He's not wearing a mask.

And so, that journalist with the glasses looks a lot like Superman. But could it be him? Seriously, though, why would Superman, of all people, work at a newspaper. That's like, I don't know, seeing someone who looks like Matt Damon working in an office. Yeah, he looks like him, but there's no way. Maybe some even think about it enough to tell him "Hey, you know, you look a lot like Matt Damon", but he just says: "Yeah, I get that a lot. Even thought about doing some look-alike appearances, but I got little enough leisure time as it is."

I don't mind Reeve's performance but I do object to this weird idea that a lot of fans have that anyone who comes afterwards has to be some form of impression of Reeve's version of Superman rather than simply doing their own version.
