Snyder's comments about showing stuff people would do if they were Superman is what excites me. It's about time we saw him do something more physical other than lift cars and blow out fires. I have a feeling people will be squeeing during these fights. He's Superman - unleash him.

I love how, in that pic, it's not just a stance. He's actually walking that way. So yeah, he's absolutely pissed!

If there's one thing I'm not worried about it's the action. WB knows that SR's fight scenes weren't up to par so you know they were all over Goyer to make sure he got that right.

Not to mention Cavill has been "battle tested" in other movies and is no stranger to roles that require physicallity and fighting. This definately works out in his favor since this movie is said to have alot more action than even TDK trilogy. I will seriously cry tears of joy while the first time Superman punches something in this movie. Im going crazy just thinking about it.

Can't wait to see Cavill on the big screen as Supes! I think he's going to this generation's Superman and I feel has a great to chance to surpass Reeve in the older generation's eyes! So pumped for this movie!

I don't really think it has to be a competition or about "surpassing" anyone. I think that's the wrong way to look at it. Because when you are talking about a 75 year old icon....it's never about surpassing as much as it is about re-inventing a legend in new but equal ways. You know?

No matter how good Henry Cavill is (and I think he's going to be very good) there are certain people (my mother and father for one) who will always have Christopher Reeve as "their" Superman. Reeve was a personal hero for millions of people. He's not going to be "surpassed" to many people. And that's ok.

To some people teens out there, Tom Welling is "their" Clark Kent. And THAT is ok too. It's not "wrong." To some kids who grew up watching Smallville, no one will ever surpass him to them. And it doesn't mean they can't fall in love with Henry too.

I just take a very different view with all this stuff. Sure, I have my personal favorites in terms of both Superman and Lois Lane. But, in general, I look at it more like there are tons of great interpretations and I'm always just happy and excited to get a new interpretation to add to the pile.

To me, the "greatest" Superman story you could possibly tell probably winds up taking bits and pieces from EVERY live action story out there because I think every version has something some things right and some things wrong. There are good points to them all.

So, for me, it's not about Henry "surpassing" anything or anyone because this is a 75 year old story that has had many wonderful actors attached to it that brought their own special conbrituations. It's about sharing in the legacy and seeing and appreciating what HE finds in the story and appreciating him for what who he is.

When did I say it was "wrong" for someone to have a different viewpoint? And I realize that for some Christopher Reeve will always be "their" Superman as you said. Wasn't really trying to start an argument...just expressing my excitement nd anticipation for this movie.

Oh I know! I totally get that. I was just trying to explain why it's weird for me to say that one actor is going to "surpass" another.

I'm excited and pumped too. I just don't go in thinking anything will "surpass" anything because I kind of just make room for something else. Does that make sense?

Umm...now I'm confused. I wasn't arguing with you. Just sharing why I can't compare the actors and can't think that one might "surpass" the other cause I just love them all. I'm excited too.

I totally understand you are pumped and I'm happy for you. Does that help clarify?

I finally got around to watching Immortals, and I was actually impressed at both Cavill's physicality and expressive nature. Sure, the plot didn't do him an favors, but he has actual charisma and charm.

I'm mostly curious about how he's going to play Clark, just because I'm thinking that if there's a nerdy Clark in the movie, it's going to be at the tail end. They want us to know the real man before he starts compartmentalizing his life.

Yeah I thought that he made a badly written script full of clunky dialogue and cliches come off surprisingly natural in places. Whereas Frieda Pinto failed for me in that area... everything she said came off cliched and unnatural.

John Hurt was good in it, but he's good in everything. I personally thought everyone sort of suffered from the script, and typical "made-for-3D-action-movie" dialogue. Cavill's physicality and abilities would work so well in a more seriously taken fantastical movie, like a LOTR type of movie.

Yeah, the script and the direction really failed the actors in that movie, more than anything. Cavill really was great in the role, but they made Theseus the cliched "reluctant hero with a vendetta who also happens to be the Chosen One." Frieda just basically played a sexy Yoda. Evans and the other actors who played the gods were wasted; they were barely in it. Rourke's plan and motivations didn't make a whole lot of sense. And the Titans didn't seem like all that much of a threat; they just seemed like weaker versions of the gods who happened to also have rabies. Overall, just a mess of a movie.

Immortals wasn't even all that visually attractive of a movie, and that was supposed to be Singh's strength as a director.
