Default Re: A key critical thing that would not only

I agree with both of you guys.

But the next Supes needs more tidbits. SR was on the right track with the blogs, but it there wasn't enough hype surrounding the movie, IMO.

I personally would like to see concept art and maybe some boards before the movie comes out. And it would make for some good debates outside of speculation.

Take Spiderman 3. We've known about Sandman for a long time. Then we got Venom. Then we got Harry confirmed as a villain. Then we got the possibility of Harry dying or getting a f**ked up face from Parker. And all the while the possibility of MJ, Aunt May, or Gwen Stacy dying to debate and speculate. Spidey 3 is still a complete mystery as far as details go, but there is a TON of hype.

At least the Bruce Timm/Paul Dini version of Superman was a sympathetic character whom the audience could actually root for.

WB nees to hand their marketing/hype machine over to Sony/Raimi. Spiderman 3 is like leagues ahead of where SR was at this point last year in terms of hype and anticipation. It is sad really how bad the SR marketing was - and we are really seeing that now with Spidey and FF 2.

HA! That is SUCH a lie. The Spider-Man movies are just as campy as Superman: The Movie and most definitely more so than Superman Returns. And the audiences love it.

Personally I thought he was a bit of a pr1ck. Especially in Justice League.

Not much of a mystery anymore, it's pretty certain who is living and dying and what the ending is.

So you're saying the only way for Clark Kent to be likable is for him to act like a bumbling nerd who trips over himself?

You're putting words into my mouth. Don't do that.

To me nerdy Clark has always been more interesting than "Real person ROFL" Clark Kent from Post-Crisis. A man that has to act inadequate in order to fully socialise with humanity has a lot more depth than a man putting on a pair of glasses to mix with humanity.

IMO "Clark Kent is who I am, Superman is what I can do" is nothing more than a ploy to turn Superman into Spider-Man.

There's just one problem - no one would hire an idiot like "Nerdy Clark" to be a news journalist. He'd get fired in a week acting that way.

And by the way, it doesn't give him any "depth".

Unless his chief thinks he's the fastest typist.

Not to mention he has a punchy prose style.

Timm and Co. are already making a Superman film. A DTV of The Death Of Superman.

Actually it does. A superpowered man having to masquerade as someone worthless to fit into normal society? It has plenty of depth. It means he has to hide who he is in order to have a normal life.

Default Who would you hire as consultants for MOS?

Ok the first one I'm going with is the obvious: Bruce Timm of TAS.
This is a guy who gets how to update Superman in the modern era. Even beyond Superman I think he just has a feel for DC characters in general.

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:

One thing SR couldn't get quite right imo was the dynamic between Lois and Clark. I will make a left field suggestion based on the pilot alone from the tv series L&C. (Yes I'm a FOLC) : Deborah Levine All of the characters exuded an amount of chemistry while she was still in the forefront of the show. I realize she isn't a "comic book" expert but her other strengths were quite helpful in characterization.

Timm is awesome, but did stumble with Superman: Doomsday big time. I think we've seen enough done with the Donner version of Supes, so I wouldn't go with Donner. To be honest, I am not sure who'd get at this point.

They can always consult me, of course

Bruce Timm is a great choice but he takes to much Liberty with Supermans ability and power, I wont be surprised if he had Superman get knocked out after getting hit with to much bullets or some weird **** like that.
