Re: Russell Crowe in talks to play Jor-El
I am glad they have a well known actor, and i'm sure Crowe brings a level of credibility to the film. Has he ever been in a superhero film before? I am quite surprised he's willing to get involved in one, and so it's good in those ways...
... but personally I really really HATE Russel Crowe. So that's just something i'm going to have to get over. Who knows, maybe this will be the moment he changes my mind.
In fact my initial shock is wearing off, and it is growing on me. There is something kind of cool about the idea. It's not what I wanted, but it could be pulled off really well.
Just accept that this is the direction they have taken.
Then, you can either decide this version isn't for you and stop watching. OR you can decide to enjoy it for what it is - an elseworlds tale.
'In Elseworlds, super-heroes are taken from their usual settings and put into strange times and places - some that have existed, and others that can't, couldn't or shouldn't exist. The result is stories that make characters who are as familiar as yesterday seem as fresh as tomorrow.'
