sometimes, it really is just fate, destiny, whatever you want to call it.

when the time is right, and the stars are all aligned, things will fall in place and magic will happen.

I've never seen one minute of Manganiello's acting but I never liked him for the role because I thought he looked like a caveman.

Wasn't Manganiello the bully Flash in the 1st Spider-man movie?

I watch True Blood and he is fine in that silly show but he isn't right for Supes. He's anti hero or villian material. Superman isn't an anti hero.

^ But Zack chose Henry because he saw a better PERSON inside, and not just a hyper-masculine muscleman. I think it's telling about ZS and Henry as well. Joe was a much bigger guy at the time (and perhaps still is), and he would have done the confidence of Superman justice. BUT, I don't think he would have portrayed the sensitivity and HUMANITY of Clark well. That's why Henry is a much better choice. I love how "innocence" won out in the end.

I dont know Henry And I have met Joe only briefly, he would not remember me .
But I know someone who is a close friend of Joe"s.
And I believe you do him a disservice with your comments .
And the man I met did not come off as a "Hyper-Masculine Muscleman",
But , rather a very humble person .

^ I'm sorry. I guess I read too many rumors. Come to think of it, Joe's always seemed rather likeable and down to earth. I'm usually not a victim of "groupthink" but I did drop the ball this time.

I would not have called that one. I'm glad he had his priorities in order that day.

I like that flying style though! It's more natural to me...

But if it looks good on film, that's what matters

I honestly was never wowed by the ending of the Matrix Revolutions visually. Then again once I hate a film it's impossible for me to care about visual effects unless they are bad.

Did you like the original Matrix? I did, but the sequels got progressively worse.

Agreed RE: The Matrix.

HOWEVER, I will say that everything went downhill AFTER Neo's first fight with the "new Agents" and his "Superman thing"

My god yeah.

Seriously, when I try and go back to how I felt about this film all the way through the process from C.Nolan and Goyer's pitch to now... the one single thing that really made this go from something I would have been dubious about and something I have been unable to be anything but excited for, is Cavill's casting.

Because all the other choices wouldn't have felt so right. They all had something... off about them for Superman.

Snyder coming on board was a nice addition to the mix, as well as the rest of the cast. But really, my excitemet started with him
