    I thought I did say that when I said "It's really not the only way forwards".

    The Superman TV series got it right. :D Then it all went wrong in the last series... because of supervillains.

    Absolute Justice was ok though.

    Wasn't particularly direct though, but this is a silly digression. I don't think you and I need another argument. :p

    DC president says the Nolan thing is just a rumour.

    Also says the rumoured Watchmen 2 is a nonsence (as if that wasn't obvious).

    Wasn't the whole Watchmen thing more related to a prequel/sequel/spin-off for comics rather than film?

    I think so. I would be really surprised if they didnt mine it sooner or later since, iirc, its their best ever selling title.

    They sort of did already with that xbox live game which was a prequel.

    Prequel is the only territory worth exploring really, anything set afterwards would undermine the ending of Watchmen.

    Maybe they could make a Dr. Manhattan God game.

    Oh wait, no, that's bad. He'll just steal my idea and claim it as his own.

    Well, we finally have confirmation of the "Nolan Connection".

    David Goyer is to wriite the script for THE MAN OF STEEL.

    http://www.firstshowing.net/2010/02/24/david-goyer-writing-new-superman-movie-the-man-of-steel/


    No origin. Braniac is finally in. And Luthor (FFS!). The Daily Planet is struggling all due to the internet. Loads of Kryptonian mythology is in. Routh is out.

    I'm a little worried about this. Goyer's output when writing scripts on his own has been shitty. Here's hoping Nolan has more to do than mentor this.

    But, then there's this from the well-loved AICN:

    Maybe he's not hired afterall.

    If Nolan and Goyer can work the same magic from Batman on Superman, it'll be ace. I love what you posted above about Brainiac and Kryptonian stuff, even Luthor being in it is ok as long as he's not the sole focus.

    Perhaps my suggestion for the recent Brainiac plotline wasn't so far off...

    Although yeah, Goyer has made some phenomenal turkeys. The less said about Blade 3 the better...

    Absolutely. The same can be said of The Unborn, apart from the poster it was utter bilge.

    Good interview with Nolan here, on his involvement with Superman. There's also some cool titbits about Batman 3 and confirmation of who the new villain won't be:

    There's a really good interview in the new issue of Empire all about Batman 3 & the new Superman (Man of Steel).

    TBH not a lot that's new, although Nolan's always an interesting interview as he approaches his subjects so intelligently.

    He confirms that the Joker definitely won't be in any new Batman film, and there's a reference to how in Superman the Daily Planet will be struggling financially in competition with internet-based news sites.

    Now there's a job for Superman if ever I heard one.

    Routh was ok tbh, it was Singer that screwed the pooch.

    If I had to cast Superman today I would go with Sean Penn

    sorry, Kevin Smith reference there....actually I would go with Henry Cavill

    Routh is perfect. ;_;

    I really don't want anyone else playing Superman.

    So Lex will be running a gossip blog, ala Perez Hilton?

    Routh was an excellent Kent, but for me had zero charisma as Supes, which is the most important thing really.

    Kent isn't a major acting challenge - bumbly stuttery geek is easy. It's a caricature. Supes on the other hand is fucking hard to pull off. It needs a really subtle touch, almost indefinable. With Reeves it was just a case of puffing his chest out a bit, but he just carried the part with such majesty and unspoken power.

    Needs to be an unknown for the film to work imho. You have to see the guy as Superman and nothing else. Baggage of previous roles will be a barrier to willing suspension of disbelief.

    Routh is dreamy as Superman!

    He's alright. Reeve is sexier though.

    ...

    hmm
  • Deleted user 7 June 2010 12:44:53
    He's a terrible director (assuming you're talking about Goyer).
