My super-hearing detects a call from 867-5309.

Yeah they do that now with super hero movies. Either that or they change a character's race....

a scene of Laurence Fishburne's Perry White

....oh. Well that's cool. I just don't see Morpheus having the kind of manic energy that Perry White's supposed to have.

"Clark, I believe that you are Superman. But you must believe."

I just saw Hancock with Will Jada Smith. Whatever you might think of the movie itself, if Superman gets the flying as well as that film did, it should be pretty cool. Or even Matrix Reloaded. Just none of that creepy floating around crap from the last Superman.

Well, that's a welcome change. At least when Superman has to go help "Jenny" out of a jam, it will seem less homoerotic.

Perry White isn't cool. Perry White is the opposite of cool, the man is damn near having a heart attack most the time.

Now how is Laurence Fishburne going to be not cool?!

And if you have to have a female Jimmy why not get a redheaded female?!? Do they hate us this much? A perfect time to serve up a hot new redhead and you're not going to do it?!

Oh goody. I hope it's an origin story, because nobody born before 1915 knows how he got his super powers.

So, where does, or DOES it, flow into continuity? Did he get a sex change or was there even ever a Jimmy?
See, that's the problem with DC's 52. I don't know what I'm SUPPOSED to know.
Did the events in Superman Returns happen? Superman 1, 2, 3 or 4?
I don't care about a black Heimdall or a female Robin, but when a character changes sexes, it kind of changes the rules.

Am I supposed to forget ALL the previous stuff and start over?
Maybe Superman can give me a kiss like the end of Superman 2, so I can forget.

I take it you didn't watch any of the seasons of CSI that he was on. Because that was the farthest thing from cool.

Ever since Ron Moore's Galactica gave us an amazing female Starbuck, I don't care as much about changing character's genders anymore.


So long as the character is amazing that is...

Vampire Superman? Probably been done.

Clark Kent's Daily Planet colleague Jimmy Olsen could change gender for the upcoming Superman reboot Man of Steel.

Add in Lex Luthor and a "womanifier-ray" that runs on pink Kryptonite and you've got a golden age comic.
 
2013-01-22 12:29:43 PM
is this movie an origin story? because we need more super hero movies that waste an hour on the origin of a hero everyone born since 1930 already knows.

No, Robin. The gay community relies on our homoerotic escapades to advertise their lifestyle.

SuperT: is this movie an origin story? because we need more super hero movies that waste an hour on the origin of a hero everyone born since 1930 already knows.


Yes, it's a reboot of the Superman movies (imitating the Dark Knight series). So this one will deal with his origin, although we don't know how much of the movie is dedicated to it.

FreetardoRivera: they can change the race or sex of all the crappy, secondary characters they want as long as we get a new villain


It's Zod, so no. But considering the last movie he was in, I'm willing to give him another shot.

No doubt this was done in the hopes that, if Superman were not the same gender as his "pal," it would cut down on the amount of erotic fanfiction clogging the Internet.

It will fail. Everyone knows Superman/Batman is where it's really at.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: Now how is Laurence Fishburne going to be not cool?!


Perhaps there will be a scene where Superman and Perry White come across a boat carrying a Vietnamese family. Superman will tell Perry not to stop, but he'll insist on stopping anyway. While questioning the family, the young daughter will rush towards a basket on the boat. Superman, fearing that the basket might contain kryptonite, then proceeds to massacre the family in a bloody, violent manner. After the massacre, our heroes realize that the basket merely contained a beloved pet dog. The young daughter then moans, showing that she's not quite dead. Perry White attempts to save her, but Superman pushes him aside and crushes her head like a grape with his Kung-Fu grip, telling Perry "I told you not to stop".

Perry, traumatized by this experience, spends the rest of the movie tripping balls, before being killed by Superman's father (ironically) at the end.

I can see it...

I don't see why they don't just rename the character completely. Seems silly.

FreetardoRivera: they can change the race or sex of all the crappy, secondary characters they want as long as we get a new villain


I would just like a decent Lex Luthor. So far they've had two great actors (Gene Hackman, Kevin Spacey), both fully capable of playing evil motherfarkers, reduced to comical land hucksters. I don't even care that much about Superman. I think he's boring except when he's getting his ass beat by Batman but do the Luther character right for once.

As for his origin story, I do remember thinking Superman was bad ass when I saw it when I was like 2 years old. Do they really think they're going to top the scene with Marlon Brando and his monolog to Kal el and the giant Christmas tree ornament crashing through the ceiling as the John Williams music comes up...do they really think they're going to top that?

Like I said, I don't really care about Superman although a battle with the Krypton villains with modern FX would be cool. And a new gothic Ursa  would be hot.

I too did not care for it. I saw it as a play to draw in the basement dwelling wankers.

However, the thing that completely ruined the show for me was them saying "frak" every other sentence. Reminded me of a bunch of grade school kids thinking they were edgy by almost saying a swear word, but not actually saying it. Killed what would have been an enjoyable show.
