As someone who has been battered in the Batman forums for expressing a different opinion from the norm I am very sensitive to posters who state their unpopular opinions. I have no problem with you liking or disliking anything WD but it's just the way you say it. You come off...wrong.

Maybe I shouldn't have said anything regarding your new feud because I didn't read all of the posts that lead up to it.

Well I'm sorry I don't come across exactly how you'd like me to I SEE SPIDEY

No it's just Jak has been on my case alot before, especially when I spoke about Amy Adams. Being called things such as a sexist bastard pig and so on for merely expressing an opinion.

I'm sure if we spoke in the real world face-to-face he or anyone else would see I'm not at-all sexiest, it's just the anonymity of a message forum, people just assume that if they think a comment sounds sexiest that must mean that person must be sexist.

And that, I definitely find offensive since I know I'm not.

And I don't think we well unless he gives us a sample in a interview (which he probably wont). So we'll have to wait until a trailer comes out.

Nope. When I see someone acting uncivil, I tell them to stop. Your PM is on the way.

his American accent is fine (warning: the acting in here isn't exactly the best)...

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:


...but that was 10 years ago. add a decade's worth of experience and his now deep, manly voice and that gives you an idea of how he'll sound as Superman.

If you see something that you believe is against Hype rules in any capacity, report it and we can look at it.

yeah but...Kevin Costner's British accent sounds more genuine than Sam Worthington's American accent.

Yeah, the kids American accent was very good. And 10 years of practice (assuming he did for auditions and what not) should be spot on.

The Cavill thread has been a love fest, a break from other threads around here. lol
Whoa whoa whoa. I didn't slam anyone. I just put together a collection of quotes by people who slammed others for choosing Cavill at the time. In fact I actually gave you props for standing up back then and saying Cavill was a good choice and could still happen. In truth I just thought it was funny how far the comments were about Cavill not being possible because of this or that. I thought people would read the old comments and have a good team laugh. I did not intend it to be a troll related post. I quoted people's own words, I never thought it was stirring up trouble. I didn't add to their words. They said it, so I quoted it and thought we could laugh about it like adults. Things really turned out different than many expected. You were even told by a poster to basically give up, stop bringing up Cavill because of his nationality and how he didn't audition for SR or JL movies and Robinov doesn't want him. I actually gave you credit for making a good choice, and believing it could still happen.

Showtime, now that time has passed and Cavill is cast. Are you optimistic about him as Superman? Or do you still have reservations of him as a viable choice?

I'll say the only er interesting thing about my post being brought up is that it shows that I always really, really wanted Cavill to play Superman but I thought that he didn't have a chance in hell of getting it.

I was a pleasantly shocked as hell when he got the role.

Oh ya I totally know where you were coming from at the time. I really didn't pull old posts to start trouble. I thought it was just worth a laugh to see how things turned out in the end. No disrespect was intended It was just amazing that this guy who was told "no chance" even from the vocal online community, ended up getting it.

Do you think a lot of people just didn't see him as a possibility which equated to the negative comments at the time?

i've been a fan of Henry's for a while and of course i thought he'd be a great pick but i too did not think he had a shot in hell at supes, so i was hoping he'd audition for batman once bale's run was over. and, well, here we are!

I will say something that may shock some. Cavill has the potential to own the role of Superman even more than Bale as Batman.

That's not really an achievement, imo. It's almost a guarantee... Bale wasn't that great as Batman.

Now if you would have said Cavill might own the role of Clark Kent even more than Bale owns Bruce Wayne, then I'd find that hard to believe.

I think Bale was the best Batman, easily. But i think Cavill can be better than Chris Reeve or as good and timeless as him.

I can't wait to see how he looks in the tights. I know he still needs to do some more working out so we won't see it for a while but still I'll be showing everyone in my family when it happens.
