To be honest, when I first heard that they were doing a reboot of Superman I was not all that enthused. Superman has been done tons of times, and the very nature of the character does not leave many places to go with him onscreen, meaning the plot will always consist of Superman eventually being faced down by Krytponite, and near death, which makes for a pretty boring story after awhile.

 

So when I heard that Henry Cavill was cast as Superman/Clark Kent, and that Zack Synder will be directing, with Christopher Nolan producing, the film suddenly demanded more of my attention. I can only hope that Nolan and Synder take the character in a different direction…. How about a Batman/Superman crossover? That might be interesting….

Let’s just hope they don’t eff it up with the female lead. The casting of Lois Lane, or any of the other Superman female leads have been pretty spotty… We need an actress with some skill, not some fresh faced know nothing ingenue…

update: So relieved that they cast Amy Adams as Lois Lane, she is an amazing actress. Here is the two teaser trailers that were released over the summer in one clip. The first is with Jor-El (played by Russell Crowe) narrating and second is with Clark’s adopted father Jonathan Kent (played by Kevin Costner).
