Perhaps you're right Caveman but in this one specific instance I still disagree. Mostly because people still hold Superman up as a very special and classic film. So unless you retell his origin most people IMO are still going in under the impression of what's been established.

Well, let's just hope they don't remember Superman III and The Quest for Peace as being "established"...LOL.

Costner plays "hick" really well, so Jonathan Kent is a good role for him.  This seems fine to me.

What will make or break the next Superman film will be the villain.  If they really do finally move away from Lex Luthor, then they need to make sure they use another villain from the comics (Richard Pryor will not cut it, nor will any other "made-up" villain), and there better be a lot of gratuitous violence.  It's high time that audiences got to see Superman really cut loose and beat the &$%*# out of some villain who can take it and dish it back.

I cannot believe this site. Dwayne McDuffie died and they can't even be bothered to put up an article today. EVERY other site has covered this except for this site, which loves to talk about comic movies but can't be bothered with anything relevant to comics.

That sucks, gauley.  I liked his work.  I'm sure the 'offices' are closed right now, so the news will be up tomorrow sometime.  If it wasn't for the spirited debates and most of the other posters here, I'm not sure I'd come back.  I can get all this news by reading the news section of imdb before it comes up here.  I just come here to read/participate in the comments.

Wise - I just called my dad, who took me to see Superman:  The Movie when it came out.  He didn't remember whether Pa Kent was alive through the whole movie.  But he did, to his credit, remember Glenn Ford portrayed him.

I still say that Lex Luthor should be in any Superman movie.  Not saying he needs to be the big kick ass primary threat, but he should be there somewhere.  Think of this - I REALLY enjoyed seeing the Hulk kick the piss out the Abomination, but the movie wouldn't have been as good without General Thunderbolt Ross.

Lusiphur, I'm actually surprised that your dad forgot he died, that was such a big moment in the film. Still props for remembering Ford.

Caveman, I'm with you. Luthor should have a part even if it's just a peripheral role. He needs to be seen scheming or something at the very least

Dude...McDuffie died?  Man, that's really terrible.  I enjoyed the episodes he wrote for JLU and was enjoying the Milestone Forever event.  R.I.P. Dwayne.  Thanks for the good times, sir.

Costner works for me for Pa Kent, be it flashbacks or still alive and giving Clark advice.  Any other character, I really can't see it...

Costner was amazing in Untouchables, but he was also awesome in Open Range.  As for Supes dad, not sure, but why not.

I wonder what Costner's nemesis, Stephen Baldwin, thinks of this.
