I'm sure everyone already knows about Russell's tweets, but with the slow news these days every little bit counts.

BTW...

This article is acting as if Russell is putting in the work Henry has. I don't understand WHY he started all this AFTER he started filming, he looked really out of shape in some of his set pics. Why start after the fact?

He should have done what Henry done and started months prior, not sure he's taking the roll serious enough or what, maybe he thinks he's just to good for that, or could he be doing this for PR? IDK



.
Or his filming schedule could be totally different, or he could be doing backstory scenes as a younger slimmer Jor-El for all we know ........ I doubt very much that Russel Crowe would not take any role seriously, he's known for being pretty intense about his work.

I didn't think of that (duh!), it's very possible Jor-El needs to look different for different scenes, slimmer for one scene, fatter for another.


Obviously it's common knowledge that there will be much more to Jor-El in MOS then anyother installment, but there may be more to Jor-El in this movie then anyone previously thought? I still have that stigma living within me from the original Reeve movie's, when all Jor-El did was show his floating fat head and move his lips every now and then! Hehe


Nolan did say this is a very different appraoch to Superman that he never seen before, I feel we have many surprises ahead of us!


For the heck of it, here's Nolan's quote...

Quote:
"On March 10, 2010, Nolan confirmed that he and David Goyer have been working on an idea for a Superman film. Nolan says, "He basically told me, 'I have this thought about how you would approach Superman.' I immediately got it, loved it and thought: That is a way of approaching the story I’ve never seen before that makes it incredibly exciting. I wanted to get Emma and I involved in shepherding the project right away and getting it to the studio and getting it going in an exciting way… A lot of people have approached Superman in a lot of different ways. I only know the way that has worked for us that’s what I know how to do." Although Zack Snyder is set to direct, Nolan will have significant creative input in the process

Nice find

Yea he did, wonder if he has anymore shooting to do? If we see him in Vancouver after losing the weight, then we know his roll as Jor-El goes deeper then just his fat scenes (for lack of a better way to put it)!

Wow! Great dedication by Crowe to get back in shape for Jor El.

He definitely has more scenes to shoot when they start filming again in the next 4 weeks.

Within 4 weeks is what I meant sorry.

They are supposed to kick back into high hear within 4 weeks. Action stuff mainly. The shooting they did near the Burnaby campus was not considered a heavy shoot.

That depends actually, if they decide to take their time or if Snyder and Mokri want to do some reshoots.

This is the beauty of having the film released in Summer 2013. Plenty of time to make adjustments during principal shooting, all while some editing and FX shots are also being done and CGI renderings as well.

I never heard April, I have seen reports that it may go into February, but...


The official dates from start to finish in Canada that were released by The B.C. Film Commission for the film’s Vancouver shooting dates - September 21, 2011- Jan 20, 2012.


http://www.onlocationvacations.com/2...ions-revealed/



So, according to this they are very close to being done filming, there is only about 4 weeks left of shoot time. Hopefully most of it's outside action, we deserve a treat for the New Year!

I thought they would be filming until the end of Feburary. Like I said though who knows.

The Summer 2013 release date provides Snyder, the crew and some of the cast with some flexibility.

It's not my word....I just pass along what I can from the birdies.

From what I had heard last month, they still have more aerial shooting stuff to do. Then again, they could have already did some of that in the studio in Vancouver.

Am I the only one that read the costume article posted recently on the stories when you first come to SuperHeroHype that was excited about the "new language"? I didn't care about the stuff they were talking about, but I really didn't want to see another Thor "we live in a different planet that speaks English" thing happen again.

I said ages ago that they should have created a Kryptonian language. I came up with Japanese spoke backwards lol. But apparently subtitles would spoil it...

Default Re: Russell Crowe in talks to play Jor-El

Of the Jor-el and Lara costumes Kuro posted I only like the TAS, the Byrne, and the 2009 (even though the last was based on the Donner costumes which I dislike quite a bit. ... And I hate any attempt at a bearded, geriatric Jor-el. )

I love the Byrne for it's distinctly alien look. BTW, whoever colored that one got it wrong. The flowing robe-like part of the Byrne Jor-el costume was usually red and Lara's was green.
Those colors were in keeping with the traditional colors the character's were always depicted in.

Secret Origin, 2009:



Earth: One 2010:



DCnU, 2011:



I wish Jor-El's costume was more like the DCnU Jor-El costume; but I also like the MOS Superman costume more than the DCnU one. Except the Springsteen costume. It doesn't even count AS a costume.

If you can buy most of it at the GAP, it's not a superhero costume IMO.

I personally don't like the Superman emblem being the El family crest.

Who says that Humans were the first to create the English language? It could be looked at as an assumption on our parts.
