Superman is not a fool, nor is he, contrary to what many fans believe, naive. Superman, in the moive, even told General Swanwick that he'd work with them, but on HIS terms, not theirs.
I wish we could permanently get rid of the Frank Millerization of Superman (and Batman) from people's minds. Superman, in continuity, has NEVER been a government stooge. He'd never compromise his beliefs for any government.
One day I'd like to see the Superman from All Star. Yes, he's super OP but it was awesome seeing him in such a light.
but but truth ,justice and the American way.
^^ Is it just me or is Superman going to nuke the Axis powers with his Superdick?
or how I learned to stop worrying and love my phallic shaped instrument of destruction.
^^ Yeah, you're right, lol.
So, Superman DOES kill! And on a grand scale at that! Not sure why people were so up in arms about the whole Zod thing in MoS...I'm not trolling - totally serious.
One interesting scenario I read from someone who thinks the statue is a memorial is based on the recent international business time script reveal (rumor of course).
It has Superman dying at the end of the film w/ Batman not able to save him.
This would lead into JL 1 where with Superman gone and threats out there from Luthor Batman formally organizes the JL. They are sticking to the new 52 supposedly and Batman is the founder in that canon.
So JL is sort of the interlude funeral for a friend film with the new JL heroes being introduced. Ending on some sort of crisis they can't handle. Then in JL2 Superman returns and turns the odds in JL's favor.
Interesting but I don't think they will kill off Superman in his second film.
The IBT rumor BTW has someone other than Doomsday kill off Supes.
Hmm...Death of Superman so soon? Like you said, interesting, but I don't think they'll do it either. And to take the involvement of Doomsday out of that scenario is just a bit off to me. I mean, I could see them maybe doing this in order to make the formation of the JL a more urgent need, but it would be risky to say the least.
Here is the report:
While it would provide an urgent need for the JL to form would they do the first JL film with no Superman? Only bring him in for the second? I don't see that.
So supposedly Luthor kills him? Eh, I don't know. Besides using Kryptonite (which they haven't eluded to as of yet as even existing in this Universe) or a manufactured weapon such as Metallo (which again, requires Kryptonite) I don't see Lex being the one to take down the most powerful being on Earth. That's why Doomsday was such a threat - he took Supes out...at least for a while.
Yeah, maybe they'd be able to bring Superman back in JL somehow - halfway through or something...
How can you have a JL film without Superman? Of course it's not going to happen.
That website is simply posting rumors and fan speculation generated from other websites. It's not insider info.
I agree. If they were to kill him off in the next film they'd bring him back in JL 1 but that would crowd out the main story which supposedly is to introduce the Justice team.
I am pretty sure eventually they will do Doomsday but not until at least JL 2. And resolve it in JL 3. Frankly I'd rather have Darkside than Doomsday in this JL film set.
I don't know. The more I think about the rumored "Death of Superman" storyline, the more I think that it just might be able to work. There are things other than "death" they could go with, like time displacement or a mission to space where people just think he's dead. Of course, he would have to come back in the JL movie.
The death of Superman would be pretty ballsy - but that route would definitely put butts in seats. IMO - the whole Batman vs Superman angle is enough for this installment and saving the death of Superman as the huge marketing bit for the next installment makes more sense. But i guess we have to wait and see.
There's a big truck blocking the Superman statue on set now lol
yeah maybe me tweeting Zack and Larry about it wasn't such a good idea.
.....or the Phantom Zone ^^^
you've ruined it for all of us!!! you.... you... you Charlatan!!
If they put half as much effort into making a good movie as they seem to be putting into making every little thing about this production (that comes with free publicity and little of spoiling) a top secret then we'll have a masterpiece in 2016
This is a best scenario.
I have this... What if they put Brainiac setting Doomsday for the climax of this one and setting on the JL (making them to unite the JL)
Lex Luthor... Mhmmm This should be ideal with a JL formed and the JL members having a feeling each one for the other. in other words for a sequel.
only change his hand like in the statue and it's pretty much like that.
