Looks like this just might not suck.

I think I remember hearing about this a long time ago. Or, at least there was something big Zack Snyder was doing a while back. Maybe it was something else, I can't remember.

Seems promising, though.

The character has become pretty stagnant. Snyder's hyper-stylization can only do the franchise good at this point, at least imo.

Eh.

The films were never anything special.

More than a few writers have done some great work with the character however. Especially Grant Morrison.

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.

Also kinda hoping Lex isn't the main villain =\

I hate Smallville so much.

Darkseid should be the villain for maximum violence. Then again there's always Braniac, Zod, Metallo, Atomic Skull, Lobo, Parasite, hell even, lol, Bizarro.

In his original appearances that's all he was.

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

He could buff up, but from what I remember his frame is more on the smaller side

I always thought of a Henry Cavill type to play Superman. If I recall correctly, I think he was rumoured a few years ago, before Returns came out.

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.

Surely, Lobo would be even more maximum violence?

Anyway, I'd be more excited about this if Grant Morrison or James Robinson were involved with the story, but still... quietly optimistic.
