Seriously, how hard should it be to sell an epic fantasy trilogy chronicling the "true" origins of werewolf folklore and Atlantis mythology, complete with bloody battles and themes of honor, power, and the nature of destiny??



Thanks all!!

There's even romance in it, which is saying something since I have absolutely ZILCH life experience to draw from in that department but UNlike "The Series That Shall NOT EVER BE NAMED" it's just another thing that informs the protagonist's decisions. But I have classical notions of romance, but there's no "damsel in distress" crap she's a strong character, and I gave her an even bigger role in the sequel.

Yep the "damsel in distress" trope is way played out now so that's good to hear. I was just talking to my sis about that last night. We are like enough of the completely helpless chick. Of course the female character can be saved but there is a smart way to do it.

Erm...you may be disappointed in the sequel then Mathion's story is ultimately a tragedy (like my love life ) so I took a particularly disastrous period in my amorous mishaps as inspiration and just amped it up to dark fantasy/horror levels

But to put it this way, the quest of Book One is ultimately a rescue mission. Mathion's soon-to-be brother-in-law Oharion (who has a pretty interesting story arc in his own right) joins up but is then captured by the werewolves, and Mathion had made a promise to Telé'a (his fiancee) to protect him ("With my life, if I have to.") and thus we have our quest

And if you think I've spoiled it for you, I haven't. Oharion gets pretty badass as the story progresses

I'm sure I won't be disappointed.

And what is this love life you speak of? I have no idea what that is sir.

Oh I hope this movie is a success, I don't want Henry ending up like Brandon. From the trailers it seems Henry did a good job with the accent, then again the only British actor I know who did a bad American accent was Orlando Bloom.

Speak not of Orlando Bloom in my presence

Unless in the context of LOTR or POTC: COTBP

I'm sure Bloom is not the only one. I'm sure Cavill's accent will bleed through (the "My father believed..."delivery is a little shaky) sometimes but as long as he doesn't pull a Sam Worthington and not even try it will be fine.

Aww I used to love Orlando. Sam Worthington? That's the Titans actor right? I admit for me to catch a bad accent it has to be really bad ala "he who shall not be named" in Elizabethtown and Natalie Portman in every movie where she is English. I didn't catch Worthington having a bad accent in Titans.

Well he's not American in Titans, she's probably referring to Avatar or Terminator.

Probably, I've only seen him in Titans and he was so bad I would never have noticed a bad accent.
Back to Henry, I have never been a huge lover of Superman's curl but I think it would have worked this time around as opposed to it being slicked back.

I personally think Zack and Co. decided to have Superman's hair be very slicked and gelled so that it would be easier when creating CGI models and shots. One thing that bugged me in RETURNS was how Brandon would be flying around, his hair flapping around in the air, he would land and his hair would be perfectly combed, with the little spit curl and all.

Hmm has that not always happened with Superman actors? Like their hair has a super aura as well. Either way it's no biggie just something that stands out to me. I wonder how Clark is going to do his hair, the only Clark I've seen is the bearded fisherman.

Well we have seen him with very curly hair when he's with Martha, and in the comic con trailer when he's putting on the glasses, it's much more refined.

I wouldn't say it's "smug"...I'd say it's his "Why thank you" face

But not in a selfish way. Like he's honoring his heritage and embracing the otherworldy side of himself.

I call it smug and sexy as he11!
Btw the \S/ no longer stands for the house of El? That's disappointing.

^ I have a feeling that they'll go out of their way to not mention Donnerverse stuff, though I think it can be BOTH a family crest and mean 'hope" on Krypton
