    Another small interesting note from the book, Clark has no friends. Whitney is the school bully and Pete is Whitney's best friend/lackey kinda guy. Whitney picks on Clark all through school

    Only in the movies would a guy named Whitney be a school bully.

    Nope, they're neighbors though. They had a play date once when they were 3 and Clark would throw her into the air and catch her, they were both having a lot of fun with it but it scared Martha so they never really talked much after that. Lana does stand up for him when Whitney bullies him though, which more embarrasses Clark that he can't stand up for himself.

    Ah... I'm not reading that until after the movie. I read the novelization of SR in one afternoon. Some things I really enjoyed, some others I really wanted to smack the author with the book... But all around, this is something I want for dessert :)

    Hmm. I don't think I much like that. Clark is a good down-to-earth and likable boy, not an outsider for the majority of his life. I don't like the idea of him being that much of a loner.

    Yeah pretty much his only real friend is his dog. Also, I just finished the book lol. It ends when he's 13 and Jonathan shows him the ship, so no mention of Zod or any spoilers relating to Jonathan's fate or how he actually becomes superman and travels the world. Probably mostly stuff to fill in the gaps that won't fit in the movie, but a good quick little read for sure. I don't think I'll read the full novelization until after the movie though.

    Maybe Lana becomes his friend after he is 13 then. A high school friend. I'm having difficulties imagining that Clark has zero friends throughout his life.

    Yeah, could be. She stands up for him so it's not like he's a total loner I guess. But they make a point of saying they're neighbors their whole lives but never really know each other. Could be a high school crush situation though.

    maybe this time around, they'll have Lana crush on Clark instead of the other way around.

    I wonder how the kids feel towards Clark after he saves their ass from the bus, though.......

    It may be new for some. I have heard the story twice, but it was a pretty funny interview non the less.
