Ah. Being fairly new around here, I did not know that Gil was a reliable source.

Still… this news doesn’t exactly fall into the category of “secret plot spoiler” - fully vouched for by reliable source guy with well-placed contacts. It’s the kind of detail that the studio would very likely want to publicize. Therefore, it should be (one might suppose) easily confirmable with a link to any number of conventional trade publications.

It's had its problems. But again, this is absolutely fantastic news that Johnstad is getting in on this. Between him and Jonah, I have no doubt this will be a fantastic film.

Someone else mentioned that the new release date will give Chris more time to participate and help oversee the finished product. This is absolutely true. Again, more great news. How people aren't doing backflips and cartwheels right now is beyond me. Between the stellar cast, the news of Johnstad helping to do some punch ups, and Chris being able to be a bit more involved, there's nothing but positive things happening with this project.

It's a good time to be a Superman fan. Now, let's just hope this place doesn't explode when they finally release a promo shot of the suit...
welcome back to the superman boards gill!

They will, this film still has 22 months until its release, usually when starting the principal photography they will release a full fledged press release. I'm sure in the next few months they will publicize it and continue to do so as production and post production move forward. One thing I want to know is who their SFX house is going to be, I pray WETA or ILM.

I mentioned it about Chris having more time to be available for post and editing work on MOS.

I for one, am extremely stoked about hearing this news regarding the pushed back release date to June 2013 (during Supes 75th Anniversary) with Jonah and Johnstad being involved as screenwriters and Chris Nolan having more time to oversee the project now.

Good news all around for this film!

Ok, thanks.

But in this case, I don’t think the line qualifies as an intentionally "witty zinger” that (oops!) fell flat. It’s an old and very familiar saying - uttered as a casual, smart-alecky insult. Along with “tell it to the judge” and other expressions, it could very well be standard “cop banter.”

wishful thinking: I hope that with Kurt, he's gonna add some hints Alluding to future villains like Brainiac, etc.

In fact in a recent video interview, the interviewer asked Henry "..and you've already started filming in Chicago?" and he nodded his head yes and said "mm hmm".
Here is said interview....

You and me both, brother! It has to be coming soon. Henry has said that he has seen and tried on the suit. So most likely a picture of him the suit exists. In fact, I would be willing to bet that he has done some sort of photo shoot in it.

Just like with everything else that has happened with this film, it will be out of the blue and totally unexpected when it does happen. could be any day, or week(s).

When they film outside shots of him in the suit, we will definitely get some paparazzi stuff. Depends what is being filmed and when, hopefully that speeds up some promo shots to get us into the design early on.

The film is a long ways off so showing the suit now would be kinda meh in my opinion. I do hope it looks good though.

My experience too. These kinda things usually are. Outta the blue, like the casting of Cavill.
It wouldnt surprise me if it happened this sunday. Or 3 months from now.

Whoa, must've missed this one. ExtrEMEly comforting news.
Didnt know Jonah was this talented. Runs in the family I guess.

Didnt really think Chris would get involved again. Hadnt linked it to the date-change and I must admit, I thought that ship had sailed. But of course, it would be very smart to get him back into the mix now that he's available. For the lack of a better word, that's just
AWESOME!!!

It's just a little too good to be true, says the wet blanket in me. I keep waiting for something horrible to happen. For that Superman-curse to set in. Of course, we do face Doomsday in 2012 and the big solarflare of 2013, so there's hope...
