Well him being in that Jonah Nolan & Abrhams tv production might help him turn his career around.

And does anyone know if Crowe was a Nolan or Snyder pick? My money's on Snyder...
I'm pretty sure that they have a list that both directors agree on.

Didn't the announcement of Amy Adams happen around the same time that they needed to do some damage control?

That's the whole thing for me though...I don't want Krypton to look like it's a Star Wars knock off city...it needs to stand alone

Yeah, the verdict (reviews) for the movie has arrived and it's not looking good, to put it mildly.

Sounds good to me!
I hope we get WB confirmation soon on this one!

From the article,
"Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane and Michael Shannon have already joined the cast. David Goyer penned the script and developed the story with Nolan who, as is his way, has kept plot details under wraps."

Why isn't Antje/Faora mentioned?

It's becoming the anti-Superman Returns;

- getting bad reviews across the board right out of the bat
- casting of big name Ryan Reynolds is being criticized, he's pretty much playing Van Wilder in this
- overfocus focus on action and humor, weak characters. no heart
- being slammed for being a short dumbed down popcorn flick for the GA


Amusingly ironic. The studio went the complete opposite way with this and they're getting screwed.

Everything is being posted in the GL Review thread in the GL Forum. I'm hoping it's not going to be another Fantastic Four. This could be very bad news for DC:E.

Caviezel blamed backlash from the passion of the christ for his career stalling
