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

Daniel Day-Lewis has already said he would never appear in a comic-book movie.

However if he did, it would be pretty amazing.

Rashida Jones? Her mother Peggy Lipton is white. Were the campaigners for nontraditional race casting afraid that a darker actress would be a tougher sell?
No, they just wanted to see a person of color be cast as Lois Lane, and Rashida is (to them) an accomplished actress.

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

We have our second cast member confirmed. Diane Lane will play Martha Kent, a choice I like a lot.

She's a good actress. Between this and the rumoured Kevin Costner casting, it seems like the Kents could have a decent-sized part in the story.

Darkseid wasn't really a Superman villain until TAS made him one. And the reason they made him one was because Superman simply didn't have any top-tier arch-nemeses once you got past Luthor and Brainiac.
Actually, Darkseid's first appearence was in an issue of Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen-#134 (November 1970). So yes, he could be considered a villain of Superman's.

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

^ The Joker has appeared in Superman comics, does that make him a Superman villain?

I thought The CW was Superman's greatest enemy.

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

The Joker has had plenty of history with Superman, one could consider him a villain of Superman's despite being more well known as Batman's arch-nemesis. Hell he played a vital part in Alex Ross and Mark Waid's Kingdom Come. They could have used anyone of Clark's villains to kill Lois, but they chose to use Joker. Are Darkseid and Joker traditional members of his rouges? No.

I hope they age Diane Lane a little for the role. She's way to hot to be Superman's Mom!

I'm aware of his origins, but remember, Jack Kirby was writing SPJO at that time and taking it in his own weird directions, using it to create the Fourth World mythos that spun off into other series. Darkseid began in a Superman spinoff title, but he didn't subsequently function as a core member of Superman's rogues' gallery. He was more of a general DC Universe villain.

I'm not making this up, you know. Bruce Timm and his colleagues talking about the development of S:TAS have explained that they found Superman's rogues' gallery weak once you got past Luthor, Brainiac, and possibly Metallo, so they decided to bring in Darkseid as a major nemesis for Superman, more so than he'd been before. And that's influenced subsequent uses of the character, for instance, Smallville currently using him as the Big Bad in their final season.

There was a significant Superman/Darkseid storyline during John Byrne's run.

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

I'm not dying on the choice of Snyder as director or the rumours of an origin story and/ or General Zod. But I have to admit that the casting so far is spot on. Though I'm feeling old, reading that Diane Lane is Martha Kent, rather than Lois Lane ...

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

No one is suggesting you're making anything up Christopher...the posters point was that Darkseid first appeared in a Superman family book. We all know that he's considered a general DCU villain. I'm not sure why we're talking about this, since most likely he won't be appearing in the film. Do you have an opinion about Diane Lane's casting or are you just gonna nitpick something that doesn't relate to the topic at hand like usual?
