Re: All Things Superman: An Open Discussion - - - - - - Part 15
I think a running time around 2hrs and 15mins to 2hrs and 20 mins is the best of both worlds. You have the best chance at moving at a good pace while covering all the neccesary stuff. The reason why I said it was hard to imagine the film being less than 2hrs and 30 mins is all the stuff they seem to be covering. We have Krypton, Smallville and Alaska before we even get to Metropolis. Granted, we have no idea how much time they're actually spending in these areas. How much time we're spending in Alaska is the wildcard.
As for Cavil, I'm hoping for the best but he's no gaurantee right now. From what I've seen of him he's never blown me away. He's never really stood out. He does have some natural charisma which at times seems to get lost on screen. I do like the fact that he has a Superman look without looking like a clone of Christopher Reeve. The worst thing would have been to cast a Christopher Reeve imposter which is what I felt they did with Routh. No offense to Routh.
