As all franchises seem to be jumping on the reboot bandwagon, why not Superman too....(http://content.usatoday.com/communities/entertainment/post/2011/01/henry-cavill-cast-as-next-superman/1)

With all due respect to the Brian Singer movie which kind of sucked and to Smallville which I love I am very excited to see this movie. the newest Superman is being set to debut December 2012 which is a merry Christmas to me in many ways.

1. The film is written by the gentlemen who wrote the rebooted Batman films (Christopher Nolan and David Goyers)
2. Directed by the fellow who brought forth the Dawn of the Dead remake and 300 (Zack Snyder)
3. And my real reason for posting this, it's going to be starring my favorite scantily clad, completely objectified Englishman, Henry Cavill....
28020

Who you say? Well rent the Tudors for goodness sakes, the guy is naked, I mean his performance is naked in its intensity. ;D. He's going to be an excellent Superman because I actually do think he can act and he looks like a man, not a teenager (though honestly I love Tom Welling too and Smallville).

And let the mayhem ensue, a darn Englishman playing an American hero, oh wait, um Christian Bale is English too isn't he...oops. ;D

Are they finally going to rid him of Lois Lane, the scourge of almost all superman film, tv shows and stories?

I don't know actually, they haven't really given out much in the way of plot details. As for the character, I have to agree to some extent she tends to be the weak link in most of these. Though I like the Lois Lane on Smallville, I didn't like Kate Bosworth or Margot Kidder and while I used to like Terri Hatcher, upon rewatching those shows I find her a a bit shrill and annoying.

As far as plot, this is all I could find:
■MPAA Rating: Unknown


Plot Details
Director Zack Snyder will direct the new ‘Superman’ reboot from a script by David Goyer and Jonathan Nolan. Christopher Nolan (Inception, The Dark Knight) is producing for Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures. Plot details are being kept under wraps but Snyder revealed the film will focus on the early days of the character and will not continue the storyline of the previous films.

Superman — born on a planet which has long since died — has been raised by adoptive parents on the Kent farm in Kansas. The young boy Kal-El is renamed Clark Kent, and though he has grown up among humans, he is not one of them. Under Earth’s yellow sun, he can do things humans can only dream of, but to co-exist with them he must live a dual life as mild, unassuming Clark Kent, secretly transforming into the Man of Steel when the world cries out for him.

What I really don't like about the Lois Lane character is that she is often a total moron.

Superman is out saving the world and is only minutes away from apprehending the bad guy and foiling the big plot, but then Lois Lane takes a stroll through some dark alley all alone and of course Superman has to drop everything he doing and come rescue her.

If she just did what every other adult in the world does every day which is stay the **** out of trouble, Superman would actually be able to accomplish something.

Superman Fails to have any good villains to feed off of, People these days want to see a dark villain in movies.

Will be interesting to see how it is. Although, I'm not getting my hopes up.


In the comics, Superman doesn't have the dimensionality that Batman or Spiderman do. He doesn't have the innate personal issues that others have. It's hard to create a believable character with him.

If it's any solace, if they concentrate on the early years, Lois Lane will probably not be in it.

I disagree. Kevin Spacey did a great job with Lex Luthor. Luthor's cold, calculating, a genius, and lacks even a shred of scruples. He'll gladly off his own mother if it will also do away with Superman. And he wouldn't give it a second thought afterwards.

That last movie sucked, but not because of the villain IMO. It was the rest that did it in.

What? Superman knocking up Lois Lane and then flying off to see the remnants of a dead planet were not believeable?

Spacey is the only reason I watched the newer Superman.

I suspect there were no "awards" as you put it because the movie stank, not because of Spacey.

Grant it, Luthor lacks the insanity of Batman's villians, but you don't need to be mentally unstable to be a great villain. The fact Luthor has no conscience or emotion makes him very evil in my mind. You wouldn't want to get on his bad side. Could be a case of personal preference?

Compare his Luthor to others (like Gene Hackman). Spacey's was a great take on the character.

very similar discussion i read on tnation awhile back, basically says the same thing you are saying, except it was talking about lifters.

people often like batman better because hes more believable, hes a normal human with no real superpowers. he does have an unlimited budget and formal martial arts training, but he cant see through walls, fly, lift buildings and do basically everything.

It's a different era in movies if you don't have a mentally unstable villain the movie won't make it. The old school Superman made it cause back in the day people like that 70s 80's cheese, Gene Hackman didn't even needed to show up to make those Superman movies survive.

apparently Lois Lane is going to be in the movie, which begs the question, who should play her...one horrific suggestion by some article is that nitwit from Twilight (Krsiten Stewart)...That would be horrible in so many ways.
Curiosity, who should play her. I like Emily Blunt as suggested by something, but other suggestions were Mila Kunis, Jessica Biel, others thought Anne Hathaway would be better suited to Lois then Catwoman, and Rachel McAdams (who I would also like).
So who's good enough for my Henry? Well nobody really, but if Lois has to be cast who should she be? Or there are alternatives, this is 2011, who says it couldn't be Louis. ;D

Why did Dark Knight become so popular and well liked? A number of things, but one that sticks out is the insanity of The Joker. He orchestrated a team to rob a bank of money, full of mob money, and killed every member of the team. He blew up a freakin hospital and tried to blow up two ships. He burned all the money he stole. He did it for fun.
I think they need to go away from a Lex Luthor villain, but if its early years, I doubt that will be the case. I'd like Darkside to be honest.

Luthor is just as amoral as the Joker is. The original superman flicks made him out to be a goofy "evil genius" but think about what he was doing. Cause California to sink into the ocean, that would have killed millions. Supported Zod, again, more millions dead. Superman III doesnt count...a ****ing computer...Jesus...and superman IV creates a clone of superman to kill superman so he can sell nuclear warheads. More millions dead. Both the Joker and Luthor prefer chaos, and strive for it.

Batman is generally more liked because he is 100% human. He can fail. Superman has only two weaknesses (kryptonite and skeletal women).

I think Cavill will do a good job being Superman/Clark Kent. I like the idea that Nolan is writing and producing for it. I like to see an actual darker version of Superman rather than the abortion that was Superman III...Darkside would be an excellent choice for a villain. He can kill S.M without Kruptonite. Its a fair fight.

I disagree. Marvel's villains were fantastic, ESPECIALLY in the X-Men series and it's offshoots, and many have a good volume of depth, often acting as "heroes" in many situations.

Venom, Carnage, Sabertooth, Galactus, Thanos, etc

...and of course, the most in depth and greatest comic villain of all time, imho:
