yea that would be a good tagline to use prime.
I know we are trapped in an uber-politically correct era and I know there is no way in heck that "American Way" will ever be mentioned on screen without it being totally tongue-in-cheek, but I believe "American Way" means more than just fighting for our country.
Watch the news. The american way is lending a helping hand across the globe. Which country supplies other countries with food, support, and protection first? That would be the US of A my friends.
I'll get off my soapbox now.
I do believe Superman would fight for "Truth, Justice, and the American Way."
EDIT: To keep on topic, I'd like to have the same feeling I had when I saw Supes (Christopher Reeve) shake his head in disbelief that Lois was dead and the scream into the sky on his way to reverse the earth's rotation. I haven't had the same feeling in any Superman movie since. That was "epic".
oh totally it could work in the right manner but with the media being so PC these days its doubtful it will be used.
Hmm, I still prefer plain old "Truth and Justice".
Or they could just avoid that line completely because its not necessary....
That I would prefer than a truncated version.
true we dont really need the line though at least hearing truth or justice thrown out would be nice.
Lois: "So why are you here?"
Superman: "I'm just one man trying to make a difference"
I think DC would be wise to make the majority of their films going forward with immense scale to them. One of DC's strengths & weaknesses, is that most of it's flagship heroes weren't as relatable as Marvel's, as most of them are mythical, larger than life characters (i.e. Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Aquaman, Martian Manhunter, etc.)
The flipside to that of course, is that you can tell movies on a massive scale. I think it's that element that could allow DC to have a pretty strong run of movies, IF DONE RIGHT. There's a treasure chest full of big, spectacle event films waiting to be made
Truth, justice, and the Obamian way for me please.
you do have a good point there doc, it would be an interesting thing for dc to do with these guys.
I'll agree. But I feel the need to point out the fact that the word "epicness" does not exist.
And anyone who thinks a Superman movie should not be epic can go and jump off a cliff... and die...
