It's still Jimmy, just after the sex change operation. The stranger thing is that the movie still has something called a 'newspaper"

Mugato: 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.


weve had enough lex movies. whats wrong with giving superman a darkseid or lobo or doomsday movie.

texdent: Michael Rosembuam made a decent Lex.


He did actually. I didn't even watch that show all that much but what I did see, you're right, he was a very good Luthor. Evil, vindictive, power hungry, wasn't interested in real estate. I was really just talking about the theatrical films, which logically should have been better than a TV show on the WB or UPN or the CW or whatever the fark it  was.

Actually, from the little I saw of Smallville, that should have been made into a theatrical film. Maybe over the dozen seasons they violated too much "canon" or whatever Comic Book Guy complaint someone might have had.

Agreed wholeheartedly re: DareDevil. I've never understood Kingpin before seeing MCD in the role. I also maintain this movie is unfairly maligned due to an unfortunate Benifer backlash, the Director's Cut was one of the better (Pre-Iron Man) Marvel movies.

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?!

In the 80s, I can understand, because a foam-rubber Doomsday would be the laughingstock of every film that isn't that era's Captain America. But these days, when Supes is going to be CG for every scene that isn't him delivering stilted dialogue, why not use any villain other than Lex?

Fark it, you can even use Brainiac or Bizarro - just, try to think outside the Lex, please?

Although I like Katee Ballsack, I thought that was stupid casting Starbuck as a woman.


For me the real stupidity was casting Ensign Ro as Cain, when it should've been The Face. C'mon....the connection to the original series for one, and Llloyd Bridges played the original Cain. Would've been a perfect fit. But NOOOOOOOO.....

I think the movie was fine. The playground fight scene was farking retarded but I've forgiven some Anakin/Padme scenes in the Star Wars prequels so one overlooks some less than stellar scenes in otherwise decent films. I think Daredevil as a character is sort of boring but that's not the movie's fault, they have to work with they have to work with. I like Ben Affleck. I mean I wouldn't suck him off (unless he asked me) but I think he's a decent actor and a pretty good filmmaker.

As for the Kingpin being black, a black Italian mobster being black, no it doesn't make sense but who gives a fark. And I thought Colin Hanks as Bullseye was pretty cool. They could have established that he was a mutant or something, that he had some supernatural shooting ability. Sort of like Hawk-Bourne in the Avengers.

I dunno, DareDevil was okay.

I don't have a problem with using Lex, they just have to use him right. A Zorg/Mr. Shadow type story would be pretty cool. Lex is the face, the villain(Doomsday maybe) bides his time in the background then comes stomping out once Luther has maneuvered Supes into position.

Wasn't this kind of the plot of Superman II? Only instead of Mr Shadow/Doomsday, it was Zod/the chick/Silent Bob?

Anyway, I'd like to see a Death of Superman movie (after the reboot, I suppose) done right - examining hero worship, self-determination, sense of purpose, altruism and the Nietszchiean "superman" question. As a lead-in to DC's Justice League (if Supes "dies" again, how can the world be safe?!"), maybe...

I suppose they covered this with the "death" scenes in Superman Returns, but a whole movie (written by Chris Nolan or Joss Whedon, until someone else shows they can write superhero movies well) might offer contradictory or new answers to that question.

// the JL cast might be super-awesome

The couple of shows I saw he made a good lex because of his motive. He was able to surmise most of Kal-Els existence and decided that a being of that kind of power was a threat to humanity. You know what? He's right. Supes IS a threat to humanity...and he must be stopped.

That's a good villan, right there.

Doomsday or Darkseid? Because Doomsday is a mindless killing machine. Darkseid is the one with more of a capability to manipulate. As far as having Lex in a Zorg kind of role, I think that Darkseid could find someone to manipulate that is far less... unpredictable (if Lex is done properly) than Luthor.

Luthor is (should be) the villain version of Batman. Beyond smart, calculating and patient. Lex in the movies is always motivated by greed. In the comics and animation he is motivated by his hatred of aliens and metas (specifically Superman) and lust for power. He feels that humans should direct thier own destinies and that he is best suited to lead that destiny.

Lex would be too arrogant to take orders from Darkseid but if he did you can bet the Kent Farm that he has an endgame. Darkseid would require total subservience and loyalty... he even suspects otherwise you're dead.

TelemonianAjax: I've heard rumor of a script floating around at some point to set a DD film in 70s NYC, full on gritty street level shenanigans. If only...


Weren't no rumor. It was pretty big news a few months ago. Fox was looking at getting a reboot started on Daredevil and that was the script that Joe Carnahan turned in. The rights, however, were set to expire and revert back to Marvel back on October 10th and Fox knew there was absolutely no way for them to have a movie in the can by then. Marvel started offering to extend Fox's lease on the rights if they handed over Galactus and Silver Surfer, but Fox said no dice (since they're trying to do their own mini-Marvel Cinematic Universe and need an epic villain that isn't X-Men-centric) and let the rights expire. So the good news is that Daredevil is back with Marvel. The bad news is that they're sticking to their, "only two or three movies a year," rule and they're booked out through 2015. Hopefully they'll let Carnahan come back on when they finally decide to do Daredevil.

Also, Marvel has The Punisher and Blade back, so it's all coming back together. Slowly.

/Thomas Jane still wants to do more Punisher.

The movie was fairly maligned due the complete craptasticness of the A) acting by Bennifer, and B) the choreography and execution of the action sequences.
