Could it be that this " huge twist to the legend " is necessitated by the lawsuit? If so it narrows the suspects abit.

I'm a little concerned with Jonah Nolan getting the directing gig just because WB doesn't want to piss of Chris Nolan. Superman is a huge film and a big franchise to just hand over to a first time director with no previous directing experience, no matter who his brother is. At least Donner had directed The Omen and a bunch of TV episodes before he got the Superman job.

Well GreenKToo, If there gonna start filming next year for a 2012 release their gonna have to start getting news out ASAP & what better place at this point in time than the Con. It's where these movies thrive, where the hype is for comic book movies (No pun intended). It's the best way to get it out there. If not then I can imagine it being not to long after.

True. I'd geek out if nolan walked out at the con, *officially* announced the reboot, and introduced not only the director, but the guy that's cast as Supes. ( that said, I don't think we'll hear any casting news for a long while yet tho.)

Its tough to say but realistically no. Batman, there bigger franchise, probably wont have a presence at comic con and it comes out before superman. At the actual con it just makes sense to focus on green lantern. They can announce the superman stuff at any time and we probably (besides a director) wont be hearing to much stuff any time soon. I mean people are expecting announcements but its best not to get your hopes up, just look at the past with the batman movies. Everyone was expecting some announcement at comic con for who would play the joker and there was nothing. A few weeks later latino review scooped it.

The twist...

The movie will be set in the 1930's/1940's....
Kryptons destruction will be seen in black and white and shown in a "republic serials" format..
The movie wil become colourised as soon as the Kents find baby Kal-El in the rocket ship.
Before the movie fast forwards thirty odd years to show a mature Superman saving lives in 1930/1940's Metropolis.
Lex Luthor will be a mad scientist hell bent on the destruction of Superman.

Yes, we may well see a giant robot.

Yeah because by adding a twist, the rest of the story wil just fall apart because no attention was paid to it . Don't forget the team working on this. They know story better than anyone working today IMO. Goyer, Little Nolan & Big Nolan are geniuses together. I'm not worried one single bit. 2 wicked Bats movies have taught me that much.

So...the movie begins in the 1930s and fast forward thirty or so years and it's still in the 1930s? Lol.

Ah, you're right -- the twist is that we finally see a live action version of that giant spider Jon Peters wanted in his Superman movie.

It did with SR. Like I said I just hope they focus on delivering a great story than a twist that could spoil the film.I've seen many films have great first and second acts and it all falls apart with the third act. IMO a twist isn't vital. They could do it on a sequel. I just want them to focus on giving Supes a solid epic franchise restart. As for the team behind the film, Im confident they'll do an excellent job.

"Little" Nolan and "Big" Nolan.

i think it would be interesting if the government captured the baby kal-el and kept him for a few years...as he grows older he gets stronger and escapes (say 5-6 years old) and runs away...the kents find him and raise him. the government looks for him but can't make a public ordeal about it because they have to keep the alien thing a secret. clark grows up to be superman, and fight for truth and justice.

the public fears him totally at first, cuz lets be honest, if some dude showed up wearing a cape with all teh powers he has it would be quite a big deal. people would be afraid. its WEIRD. it would turn the world upside down. religions would be questioned. people would wonder if there are more coming? what else is out there? the gov't would realize that he is the kid that escaped and go after him. lex turns against him and in turn gets the public against him. the gov't tries to catch him, and ask lex, with all his technology and brains to help them.

brainiac turns up...maybe superman gets caught or subdued by lex....and they have to release him because its the only way to beat braniac...the public loves superman because he saves the earth. the gov'tis still afraid of him and lex is pissed and sets out to destroy him.

oh yeh, and then there is the character stuff with lois and his parents and what not

the end.

The twist:

At the end of the movie as Superman's heading for space to do his patented flyby and smile, he smacks/crashes through a big glass wall and we learn that the whole time, Metropolis has been in one of Brainiac's bottles aboard his ship.

Not bad. For me, I'd change that the goverment has him, to the gov tracked the spaceship coming in, and traces the loaction to Kansas. the ship crashes.
The kents, on their way home, arrive first of course, and they think its a goverment experimental aircraft instead of an alien craft. They find a small child in the wreckage (alive and well) and wrap it up. Jonathan tries to load the ship into his truck, but its too heavy for him, so he hides it the best that he can with brush.
Martha, thinking its a secret gov experiment, is furious that they would use small children in such tests and tells jonathan that they must take the child away.
The kents leave the scene, and not long afterwards a private goverment group arrives at the crash site lead by a man from luthor-corp.

Later, the man that was leading the Luthor-corp team arrives at his home. He walks into his house holding an artifact from the ship..his son (about 5 or 6 years old) walks up. the man studies the artifact, and lets his son hold it..'Lex', the man says, ''your holding your future''.

Great minds think alike, though I actually thought of a similar idea as a better ending to the "New Krypton" saga in the comics.

Instead of this "Super-Gump" stunt stuff, Superman would return to BAU (business as usual) and things would seem okay for a time. Then he'd notice things aren't what they should be, as would other folks in Metropolis.

The reveal would be about five issues into the new year-long arc. Metropolis was shrunken and placed in a bottle, trapping Superman. In the meantime, Brainiac and Luthor have conquered the Earth, a fact we'd learn after a few issues of Action Comics.

Superman and Metropolis' story would be the focus of Superman, while Action would deal with the world fighting against the Brainiac/Luthor team. This would also be a company-wide crossover, as we'd see how both heroes and villains would deal with the "Lexiac" rule.

A simplified version of this would work in movie form as well, I think.

well hopefully goyer and jonah nolan will not do anything to crazy for twists or anything. like those countless crazy ideas of the 90s/early 2000s, or singer did with having a super kid. Now its probably not going to be anything to out there. Since i am sure wb will want superman to be clearly defined and not to out of the norm for the character. IT will probably be more on story telling and set up then some crazy life altering twist.

For me i just want the film to have a good story, treat the characters right, keep things faithful to what ever source materials they are drawing from, and have good acting, visuals, and direction.

I think it will be an Earth/Krypton connection. Those who have read the end of Red Son get where I'm coming from here.

i doubt they would do something like that, it could just be a twist on seting up a big villain for a later film, or like i said twist is more in story telling/film set up.
