    The last decent movie score to me was Gladiator, and this was 11 years ago.

    huh doubled.

    The Superman theme probably is the most recognisable movie theme ever!

    I'm guessing "Star Wars" is right up there as well.

    Star Wars and Superman were the two major themes from my early childhood. I was two when Star Wars came out and three-I think-when Superman came out. Those themes are burned into my mind forever and I'm glad to have them there. :)

    I agree:)
    And it worked very well in Superman Returns also.
    Though now Williams has to go against his own masterpiece and do something equally great..and I am sure he will do a good score. Maybe we see some of the old notes there, too:cool:;)

    I can't remember any music from Nolan's Batman movies.

    Can't see any version of Superman with a "minimalist" score. Sorry. :p

    Smallville comes the closest.

    It's not even close to being a version of Superman.

    Okay, it's not that close to being a TV show. :lol:

    Interesting. See how his cloak and the legs and arms of his costume are the same colour as Superman's suit? And the greenish armour is as described in a story recently linked here.

    Crowe looks like he could be appearing in a hi-tech sequel to Gladiator! But I like it.

    Interesting.

    I'd prefer stiletto heels and little cat ears, though.

    He does look more like a warrior than a scientist but I still like the look.

    You know if it was a comic book, it's kind of cool, but he looks like an idiot

    Out of context all these actors look silly in costume. But once you see the finished product they look a little more natural.

    I like that design.
    More or less off topic, interesting fact: In a couple weeks they're going to be doing a "Wild West Festival" at a park in Glendale, and one of their celebrity guests is Noel Neill, the second Lois Lane in the original George Reeves Superman TV show. It claims it's going to be her last public appearance.
