I'm not going to read this thread, but has anybody mentioned yet what a tragedy it is that Zack Snyder is still allowed to make movies in Hollywood, much less allowed to touch something like the Superman franchise? It's really a shame. The dude is a hack and, despite what looks to be a potentially entertaining cast, this movie will be an abortion.
Michael Shannon is awesome, though. Just thought I'd throw that out there. It's good to see him getting work on a big picture like this. Costner is also probably a good cast as the father. I couldn't care less about how hot Louis Lane is, but they could do worse than Amy Adams. She was OK in The Fighter.
