I was referring to the live-action portrayals Though I did enjoy Smallville for a short period of time.
I think Snyder could really do something interesting with the material in film format. I haven't seen all the Superman movies but what I've seen they've basically been doing the same thing over and over. The new one tried to do something new, but... feh.
I doubt thei'll use Brandon Routh again. Its a real shame because I thought he did a great job. I did like Returns, but I see what people didnt like about it.
If they recast, I'd love to see Jim Caviezel in the role.
If they wanted a Margo Kidder type Lois, Id say Courtney Cox. But I quite liked the touches of Catherine Hepburn that Kate Bosworth brought to the role, like in the animated series. Though im not sure she was right for the role, maybe too young. That what i worry about with the Natalie Portman rumours
The only thing I can add to this topic is that the Superman as depicted in the most recent movie looks very corny. I vote nay to skintight suits and underwear on the outside in live action movies... on men .
I also think live action superman only worked in the 70's and 80's.
But, they've should have chosen a different villain. Would have loved to see Brainiac. There's a lot they've could have done with that character creatively, and considering his abilities they've could have set up different routes for sequels, etc.
