Not quite; you're mixing up actors with movies.

Should be: Superman Returns is the On Her Majesty's Secret Service of Superman films.

I'd say that both comparisons are true.

Neither Routh nor Lazenby were bad, but they demonstrated a lack of experience and weren't given the opportunity to grow into their respective roles.

Because of those factors, it stands to reason that Routh will be forgotten, or not remembered fondly, like Lazenby. Justified or not.

^And for what its worth, it was Lazenby who quit Bond unlike Routh who was caught between a mediocre movie and a reboot. That would be like the only big difference between Lazenby and Routh.

I wonder, if the Internet had been around back then, would there have been an army of Bond fans who demanded that they BRING LAZENBY BACK!!!

Considering how wooden his acting is I certainly doubt it...

Fair enough. I wasn't a fan of Routh but no need to kick a guy when he's down.

So far, the casting of this movie, (and the rumored casting) has been great, IMO. When do you guys think we'll get our first shot of Cavill in the suit? Obviously it will be a while, but I'm just curious when you all think it will be?

If they follow schedule announced so far (shooting starting July/2011 and release movie at December/2012), first shot of Cavill in the suit is going to be around December/2011 or January/2012. Something like that.

I reckon we'll see something at Comic Con even if its just a teaser poster or something along those lines. I just hope that there's at least a Superman panel with some of the cast and crew.

Shouldn't they start filming by then? I mean I read that they start filming by May-June?

All we know is they are definitely filming in August but that doesnt mean not before then so May-June is possible but remember like they do with these comic book movies sometimes they take promo shots of the heroe's in costume before filming begins. They did the same with Routh in Superman Returns so hopefully they'll do it again (with a better costume n pics )

Thanks for the info.

God, I wish the film was being released at the end of this year instead of next. It's going to be one long and painful wait till next christmas.

Not in the U.S. at least... they just recently announced a release date for it here. The end of next month, I believe.
