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.
'Why do I find all of this so horrible to explore?
Sure, they are interesting questions that I don't mind seeing in an elseworlds GN. But as a theme for the film that is kicking off the tone of the whole JL, and in a film that is presenting Superman to the general audience in a way that current generations will remember him?
I just don't like it. It's dark, it's depressing and it's not how I like the tone of Superman films to be.'
