BTW, don't I own europe at the moment?
Well I gave him a fair chance and now not even the prettiest fx and promises for wrath of khan can make me want him back. Promise me wrath of Superman comics instead.

And so what... You've got... let me see, Afgahnistan, India, china... wow real world powers there... I've got ukraine, baby. UKRAINE RULES!

Singer isn't perfect, but I don't want Ratner anywhere near Superman.

If my only two choices are Singer and Ratner, I'm going out drinking.

On the one hand we have unimaginative Singer aping Donner and combining it with weak soap opera. On the other we have Ratner who completely doesn't understand or respect the source material and will absolutely destroy the franchise.

No choice at all really.

Mischa, ... I'll have a Blue light and get me a Miller light for my buddy.

we all know it is singer, he's signed the contract, so we should wait and see, then flay him alive if it's bad! Then again, superman isn't exactly the most interesting of superhero's anyway!

This is exactly the wrong attitude to take.

Any character can be boring if not presented properly.

It's always been my feeling that the best way to present Superman in a way that makes him interesting is to have an antagonist who can give him a real battle and to have some great character exploration with his supporting cast.

AND ... to set him in today's world and have him a full part of it... not like a visitor from the 1930's.

Nerd Clark, nerd Jimmy ... they just don't work. Jimmy becomes comic relief .. as a clown. Clark .. well, he just looks like a nebbish.

Let Clark be a quiet, intelligent but anassuming guy like Dean's take on the character.

And Jimmy.. for pete's sake ("love is understanding, don't you know that this is true ....") let him be normal like in the animated series. In fact, he could have little adventures within the adventure. Imagine if they used Darksied in one of the films. Darksied takes half of Metropolis to Apokolips as hostages in an attempt to force Superman into servitude while Jimmy takes charge in freeing himself and some of his fellow captives. It could be really exciting.

Not every Superman adventure has to be limited to Metropolis or even Earth. It isn't that way in the comix and it doesn't need to be that way in films.

Superman can be a GREAT science fiction figure if someone would only let him be.

It's like asking me to choose between dog***** and horse*****.

But then again I already know how the Singer movie turned out and that was pretty bad.

Singer by a landslide. Just look at what happened to the X-Men series.

Ratner, despite the initial negativity, buzz on the re-writes were really positive. Plus Christopher Walken automatically makes it better than Superman Returns.

I disagree. X3 was visually stunning, and Kelsey Grammar was awesome as Beast, but other than that I thought the movie was a heaping, steaming, disgusting, revolting pile of crap.

SR, OTOH, I thoroughly enjoyed. Sure, it had pleny of flaws, and I certainly didn't enjoy it nearly as much as Batman Begins, but I still liked enough to see it more than once.

I thought Kerri Russell was the actor that Brett Ratner wanted for the role of Lois Lane?

None of them. I'm still of the opinion that the ideal person to direct the JJ Abrams script was JJ Abrams himself...

Testify, my brother...!

He actually lobbied to direct it. Pitched the film and everything. WB said thanks but no thanks... Tom Cruise said come work for me... Paramount said thanks for bringing us JJ but, Tom, your services are no longer required... Tom returned to sucking on placenta and now plots his next move for world domination...

Just goes to show that WB have no idea what they were doing... they were gagging to get JJ's script made... JJ was the man that could have made it but they passed on a golden opportunity. Instead Singer turns up.
