Re: OT: THe Dark Knight Rises by Greg Cox

Yeah, there's no reason to think that footage has anything to do with Smallville. I'm assuming the film is following the precedent of Superman: Birthright, with Clark travelling the world and gaining wide-ranging experience before settling in Metropolis. (Which certainly makes more sense than just trudging to the Arctic and spending a decade and a half getting a cosmic education from the ghost of his dead father.)

Travelling the world his father sent him to is of as much value as any teaching his father could program an AI tutorial to provide.

In the teaser and trailer, when we see kid Clark walking around in the cape, the jagged seaside rocks are right behind him.

Although I guess that may well not be Clark. In fact, with all the "you will inspire them" stuff, it's more likely just some kid who saw Superman in action.... never mind.

Not if, like in Smallville, that education included how to make sure he doesn't accidently crush lovers to death in the heat of the moment.

Heck, Smallville was most likely borrowing from Larry Niven's classic 1971 essay "Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex" (which is reprinted with permission here).

So I guess no one has bought and read Greg's novel since we keep jumping off topic? I've started it and it's tremendous. Very close to the script indeed.
