You know most Hollywood actors personally?
No, but I do watch interviews and some of the things they say and see the things they do. I don't have to know someone personally to make a judgement call about people. Thierry actions speak for themselves. Maybe most is a strong word.

Latino Review Rumormill!

http://www.latinoreview.com/news/exc...ton-more-13234

Being that the "Man of Steel" is a reboot/origin story or whatever you want to call it, they will show you the whole story all over again. Well not the way Richard Donner showed you but it will have some sort of similarities to "Batman Begins."

Here is what my source told me:
You will see JOR-EL and his wife, Lara.
Daniel Day-Lewis was looked at for JOR-EL and not the villain.
Krypton will not be a crystal planet like the Donner film; this Krypton will PROBABLY look like the Coruscant skyline from Star Wars. (See image below)
The Kryptonian villainess is not URSA...Well sort of. The villainess is FAORA.
In the movies Superman and Superman II, the female Kryptonian villainess URSA is based on Faora.

I'd kind of like to hear your mocking tone.

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

In my Alternate Smallville project that I've been working on and off on for the last few years I made Faora Zod's wife while Ursa is his mistress. Ursa is a character who benefited from Johns/Donner's retconning. I think that we'll get a different depiction of Krypton in this movie.

I thought it was cool seeing it again in SR, but yeah... it does feel like the right time for a new take. Of course judging by the art design for Sucker Punch, it's almost a certainty that there will be a heavy, retro scifi look to it.

And I wouldn't be surprised if the rocketship looked like the old movie serial rocketships too.

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

The crystaline Krypton is a staple of the DonnerVerse and the Silver Age Fortress. I think a city planet type of design for Krypton would be interesting. The awful "Return of Krypton" story line kind of depicted Krypton like this. There are any number of ways to depict the planet.

This.

That would be very cool.

Yeah I think we'll be pleasantly surprised with the art concept for the movie.

This.

I on the other hand would be very happy to see some type of Kryptonian birthing matrix appear in the film. Some CGI baby coming out of it would be SO COOL! and the reactions of Costner and Lane would be fabulous...

A Corusant looking Krypton



Makes me imagine Jor-el's home/quarters at the highest skyscraper in Krypton.

Hopefully it won't be the planet of the mid air collision...





The future cities we briefly saw in the opening of 'Serenity' looked pretty cool, it actually look 'Utopia-y' (If that's what they're going for in this film, advanced utopia) instead of just tall buildings and flying traffic jams.

Also the architectural design was cool too.
