not one damn punch thrown! only lifting
lol, now that is funny

I know some bash the Man of Steel Daily Planet characters as being underdeveloped, but did Returns do any better? Lawrence Fishburne is already a much better Perry White then Frank Langella. Fishburne's performance and presence demanded more respect, was intelligent, and compassionate. Or does more lines equal character development? Langella never stood out, he was a cutout newspaper editor.

And Jimmy Olsen? The disposable, annoying buddy character? Once again more lines equals character development?

I felt Man of Steel did a good job of painting powerful, believable supporting characters even though this film was certainly all about Clark Kent which minimized their screen time.
