If I ever see a Superman Movie with a shrunken city, I'm going to shoot myself

You do realize, the goings on inside the city would be for the most part, unaffected by it's small size? It isn't like the people are speaking with teeny tiny little voices.

Yup, it's the whole Brainiac as collector thing. (I haven't found the time to read the script yet )

Not much action? There's not action in every single scene, but not only is there plenty of action, there's some pretty big action compared to the other Reeve Supermans movies.

It's not just "Human Braniac", it's both robot Braniac and humanoid Braniac. The weirdness of it is kind of the point. He wouldn't be just like every other villain, as he is a robot who is experiencing feelings for the first time.

Why would the City of Kandor be "unrelatable"? Why the hell would such outlandish science fiction concepts need to be? What does that even MEAN, in context of a Superman movie with Braniac in it?

Apparently some of you have either never read the comics, or have no reverence for classic comic book elements. The Bottle City of Kandor is a huge staple of the Superman mythology.

I dont think the GA would like these ideas of shrinking a city that much...Anyways, the best version of Brainiac to me is the Animated Series one.

It might call for a re-establishment (re-boot) of the franchise. A re-boot infusing a sci-fi tone to the Superman adventures. Within that tone Kandor would fit just fine. Perhaps, though referred to as such, it would be contained in something beyond the confines of a literal bottle.

And that right there, it the difference between you liking an idea and someone else absolutely loathing it...and picketing by not watching.

It's the simple biggest gripe I have about Superman fans, everyone is so entralled and involved with 'their version', they will literally be the 'Indie Music Guy' when it comes to other versions. Very similar to the way Batfans already view TDK as opposed to say.....any other film every created.

That is the problem, and unfortunately for this thread, that's what will continue to happen.

YUP.

So many versions of the character to choose from and a very large mythology and history for everybody to realistically agree on. It's a complicated situation. *sigh*

Why the sigh.

Speaking for myself I get great enjoyment discussing everything and anything Superman, and it's only the wealth of the mythology, the variations of the character, and the complication of the situation that allows for diverse opinions, and diverse opinions are the stuff of interesting discourse.

It's only when the validity of the poster and his points become the topics, and are ridiculed, rather than repectfully discussed.

Thats very stupid for u to say that since I absolutely LOVE All-Star Superman AND IT IS Basically pre-crisis, with bottle city of kandor an all. The thing is...when done by someone who loves the character and understands it, i will like it, no matter what version of Superman. I dont care about details. I just dont trust that some unknown writer who never read Superman comics in his life would just open a page of the comics and pick this idea and make it work like Morrison did.

Anyway, i know a great Superman story when i read it right away be it pre-crisis, byrne, post-crisis, origin, whatever. SR wasnt a great story nor it deserved to be told and spent 200 million dollars in making it come true.
