Franco said he got the impression Cavill didn't like him because Franco himself was too serious or something like that when they were shooting Tristan and Isolde.

I thought the review was interesting and I wouldn't say he was shading Cavill necessarily but I didn't like how Franco managed to make MOS all about him. Franco is one of those celebs who doesn't hide his extreme narcissism though so maybe props to him for being honest at least?

That's a great suggestion. Gibson would also stay in character for all the promotional stuff, because he is a real-life ****hole.

He did talk about himself in that review but he also praised the film and admitted to being a bit of an A-hole when he worked with Henry before.

I usually don't care about celeb's personal lives but it's hard to not care in Gibson's case. Just a really hateful man. Jodie Foster and RDJ are probably the only things keeping him from being an A-hole 100% of the time.

A suggestion to everyone....when discussing a character being a racist....that does not mean that you are allowed to make racist remarks in demonstrating it.

he didn't talk about cavill till the third paragraph, but i think he was on the money about superman.

So, what did we watch? A great film. But what makes me say this? Is it the nerd revolution that has brought our public taste to the point where comic-book characters and video games are now cool? Are these huge comic-book films the way for the world at large to embrace the subjects of these forms that are traditionally relegated to the nerd niche? Yes, in a way. But in another way, we are just wowed by the money that brings them to fruition. Kids like comic-book-style heroes, teens like flashy action and sex, and therefore these films make money. Adults—the third audience—respect money. So these films are made. Again and again. And if Brandon Routh doesn’t work as Superman, or if Sam Raimi can’t agree on the villain for a fourth Spider-Man, they will just make new versions without them. Man of Steel is great because it delivers everything it should. It made Superman cool again. It delivered great action and interesting characters with a plot that was grounded enough to make us care a little.
far as lex franco, the tension between franco seems to think he and cavill have between one another could work on screen.

Superman doesn't like Raimi's Spider-Man 3. But that's par for the course...uh, of course.

After seeing The Walking Dead, how about:



Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
So would any of you think that David Morrissey would be a good choice in playing the villain with a friendly exterior with a psychotic dark side that slowly bubbles to the surface in the form of the Governor Lex Luthor in Woodbury Metropolis?

If Snyder ends up going for an unknown actor for Lex in the end, I'm going to throw his name into the mix then. I think he could do bald.

I read the first line of that above post about The Walking Dead, and my "Some giant a-hole is about to do a total dick move and give away a big spoiler" spider-sense kicked in so I scrolled down past the rest of the post before I read any specifics. But come on, don't be such a thoughtless moron. Some of us are obsessively avoiding spoilers and sticking to "safe zones" where surely no one will be talking about The Walking Dead.

I always think this should result in an immediate, permanent ban. I have had the whole of series three of Game of Thrones ruined for me by exactly the same thing.

If the poster is in fact a moron, then it can be ascribed to thoughtless stupidity. If they are not, then it is antisocial.
