    I never thought he left just to do Superman. That would make no sense, like you pointed out.
    It WAS really shitty how WB pulled the rug out from under him, though. Makes it almost impossible for me to want to support James Gunn's Superman film

    CBS has cancelled So Help Me Todd and C.S.I.: Vegas. It sounds like CBS had an embarrassment of riches and the two lowest rated shows, despite doing okay, had to get trimmed.

    But I like So Help Me Todd.

    If we tell them that I like So Help Me Todd, maybe they will change their mind and find the money to keep it alive for a few more years?

    Finally a couple of shows canceled I have heard about before. But still not watched, so much as one episode.

    The story is different depending on the point of view of Cavill or the Producers. I think the producers have liked to say they removed him due to problems they say he was causing on-set to the point there were articles trying to paint him in a negative light, while Cavill has said he left due to creative differences. Regardless of the viewpoint, I think it's fair to say there was friction on the set that led to a change. I don't think we'll ever know the full story. Personally, I felt like the producers came on rather strong and aggressive in wanting to do their own thing, and perhaps this is what caught Cavill off-guard, and it sounded to me like they didn't like that as a fan, he was trying to correct them. They likely underestimated him being a fan, a point originally in his favour that had become a negative to the producers.

    Either way they would have done better at listening to him. If only they had figured out what Fallout and The Last of Us did and that is sticking and showing love for the source material can actually be successful. I am guessing Halo should have learned that lesson as well.

    I’ve enjoyed all three without knowing the source material.

    Fallout, Last of Us, and Halo are based off video games. The Witcher is based off the books with very little based off the games, beyond Geralt's appearance.

    I've read the book series and I actually think they did an alright job bringing the books to life without being a blatant copy. It's not perfect, but what is?

    Yeah, agreed. They could have easily used that to their advantage. Instead they seemed to feel threatened by his knowledge, and the producers are the ones that came off as being unreasonable.

    I think he means overall source material. Both are are based on their respective source material, wether they be books or games. Cavill was said to be a big fan of the books, and is one of the things the producers were initially impressed with in him.

    By the time an actor complains about the Shooting Script in front of them, its 8 months too late to make any changes.

    Spooky, but that's when I found out too, also investigating for no reason... Oh?

    What, sorry?

    (Focus!)

    My bad...

    Last night I was mystified that the Lazarus Project had been Cancelled.

    The Rookie has been green-lit for Season 7 (YAY!).

    No word about 9-1-1. I'm still hoping for a crossover with the Rookie. 9-1-1 has always had action/plot lines that neared over the top status, but this season they are really pushing the limits. While I've enjoyed the series, I'm starting to cool on it.

    Me too. Their meta retelling of Poseidon Adventure was starting to go off the deep end, as it were.

    Not cancelled yet, but CBS has not yet decided on the fates of The Equalizer and NCIS: Hawai'i.

    Damn, I didn't even know it was in the works so now I'm doubly disappointed.

    NCIS: Hawai'i is now cancelled. It is unclear if it will be shopped to other outlets.

    If you were a fan of HGTV's "Flip It to Win It," it's definitely not coming back. Star Charles "Todd" Hill is going to prison for real estate fraud and ponzi schemes.
