Wolverine 2: Aronofsky seems like a great choice to me. He seems like he can add the hard edge that was lacking from the first. He can also give us characters you care about. And do it with pretty photography.

Superman: This script idea sounds like it would be like the final season of Smallville. Clark trying to decide if this will or should be his destiny.  I personally would prefer that he already be the Man of Steel at the beginning since most already know his basic origin. But this type of approach hasn't been done on the big screen before. I'm enthusiastic for the whole creative team. Let's get started!

With this idea they probably won't go back to Brandon Routh so start the timeless debate Maniacs-Who will play Superman?

Monkeyfoot, Snyder was quoted the other day as saying that he doubt's Routh with ever don the tights again.  If the DIRECTOR is saying that, then I think we can all assume that to be the case.  My vote is still for the good Werewolf dude from True Blood.  He's huge and he's a decent actor.  Plus he's fairly unknown.

SupermanHomepage.com has some rumored info about Goyer's story for the film being based on the Superman mini-series Birthright.  If that's the case, I don't know how Zod fits into it since it was basically Lex turning the people of Earth against this new alien threat that is Superman.  Of course, I do like the first half of Birthright with Clark's stint reporting in Africa and eventually coming back knowing what he must do.  Plus there's the tie-in with Smallville where Lex and Clark were somewhat friends for a few years when they were younger, but Lex thought Clark betrayed him.  When they meet again later in life, Lex denies ever meeting him, etc.

So, Smallville isn't completely over, its just getting moved to the big screen. We fans have stuck it out for 10 seasons waiting for Clark to put on the supersuit. Now we are going to have to go see a movie where we have to peobably wait until the end of the flick to see him in the suit again. The only way that would be ok is if they are planning on making at least three movies. And I know but why Zod, he was so underdone in Superman 2 and whatever the hell they did to him in Smallville, why do they have English accents?. I know I am not alone when saying I am tired of seeing him and Supes throw down.

@Calibur454, you need to pick up a Superman comic now and then.  He has more than one weakness, Kryptonite is just one (and for many years it came in a variety of colors and effects) of many.  He is vulnerable to magic (not more than anyone else but he can be harmed by magic), mental control, his power is not limitless and being exposed to red sun radiation results in a loss of power.  His other weakness is his moral code.

 

I like the idea for the Superman movie, if it's for real.  It sounds more like Byrne's Man of Steel from 1986.  That was a great story.  He's still performing heroic acts as a he travels the world, it's just on the sly ala the Blur from Smallville.  I hope they tweek his background to where he knows/suspects he's not from Earth but he wasn't "briefed/tutored by crystal" and it's Zod that reveals who he really is.  I have faith...

 

I like me some Emma Stone.

 

Wolverine and Aronofsky...  I dunno.  It's gotta be better than that last turd though, right?

 

Ghost Rider 2... I'll probably see it with my Dad and my son.  $5 tickets and smuggle in some licorice and  a camelback full of Dr. Pepper.

 

Three Hulk's in less than 10 years?  Hopefully Mark adds some much needed stability to this and they can make it a franchise worthy of the character.

 clark traveling the globe?isnt that kinda whats going on in the comic now,except its the US ,they should start off strong with a battle with oh i dunno "parasite" then fade to brainiac watching from space setting up for zod,superman is not a dark character but he has seen some dark times,play on that

Wait... if it is based on Birthright... that was an outstanding book... it is the current DC cannon origin of Superman... but... Lex is the heavy in it not Zod.  Im' sooo confused... sob**

hey lance you forgot SUPES biggest weakness/foe....RICHARD PYROR.

Tasty bit of news here. Ahh, where to begin...? Let's start with Gwen Stacy.

Lovely! Absolutely lovely! Emma Stone is playing Gwen! This is awesome news! She'll make a good Gwen. Now, this means that Emma Roberts can still potentially be cast as MJ, too. Please let her be cast as MJ! 

Hmm, Idris Elba is slowly starting down the path of "perpetual comic book characters" in film. With Thor, Ghost Rider 2, and his talks of Blade and Luke Cage, he'll be joining the ranks of Ryan Reynolds and Chris Evans in no time. :P

Shia says Transformers 3 will be the best of them all? I can second that, if just for the fact that Megan Fox got axed. That already makes it a better movie, I think. 

The potential Superman script sounds ok, but I'll wait until it's completed before I really give my opinion on the story. I'm just glad Zack Snyder got the job. 

I'm all for Darren Aronofsky directing Wolverine 2. 

And yes, bring on more Hulk!!!

silversurfer 10/6/2010 1:09:22 PM

I think that Ghost Rider should be very much comic-based....good news for it.

Darren will be good for Wolverine, because at this point it needs something like that....Logan's story is not just about claws....he had a past, Aronofsky would be great at pointing those things out.

Emma Stone as MJ is excellent news, she'll be sultry with an attitude...

Clark Kent traveling world sucks....Superman is what we want
