Ok, I just want to say, I have no idea whether or not this thread already exists. If it does, my apologies and please delete. That being said onto the show!
So it's kinda official. There is going to be a new Superman reboot titled Man of Steel and it's set for a 2012 release. The film will be "Godfathered" by Christopher Nolan with a script by fellow Batman alumni David S. Goyer
following the success of The Dark Knight. "Godfathered? What does that mean?" Well it means that Nolan himself is not directing, instead taking on the role of a Mentor to help the film get on track. The man chosen for the job is actually one of comic books most memorable name: Zack Snyder
All that aside, it's the cast thats really turning heads. The choice for lead role is himself a huge departure from what audiences are used to seeing. The dual, or perhaps triple, role of Clark Kent/Superman has fallen to Tudors star Henry Cavil
, which marks the first time an Englishman has ever played the titular Man of Steel. Other who have joined the cast include Diane Lane and Kevin Costner
as The Kents, and Amy Adams
as intrepid reporter Lois Lane. There are also talks of Viggo "Aragon" Mortenson
himself starring alongside as Kryptonian war criminal General Zod.
Personally I think this film is steam rollin' it's way in the right direction, though I'm surprised to see no mention of Superman's arch nemesis Lex Luthor. Anyways, what do you guys think?
Theres sex and death and human grime in monochrome for one thin dime and at least the trains all run on time but they dont go anywhere.
