    They are nature's deadliest assassins...

    Better question is: Does this Henry Cavill fellow have the eyes of a killer?

    ^ Yep, L-Ron IIRC from Smith's script lol. I would love to see the Skull ship in all seriousness. Done properly and designed faithfully I think it would be fantastic to see on screen.

    L-Ron...

    I just thought of this, but could Smith have been making a passive aggressive comment about L. Ron Hubbard? Probably not, but given the whole Scientology/alien thing...

    I still have those Bryne issues. I was fascinated with the concept of "Superman: Exile" I had nearly the entire run.

    IIRC, Byrne left Superman right in the middle of writing this story and the resolution was written by someone without access to Byrne's notes. I always wondered if there were some "trap doors" in the plot that didn't come off because of that.

    L-Ron is most definitely named after Hubbard. However, he was created in and for the comic books back in the 80s. I think by Keith Giffin for JLA/JLI

    I read that Lana Lang & Pete Ross would play a small part in this movie...would be cool to see these characters in Man Of Steel. :)

    ^ I wouldn't be surprised if we saw them in some kind of Smallville scene.
