  1. That Bastard Tony

    The new Superman poster has raised my hopes for the movie since it’s giving the impression that they are going for a more realistic depiction of Supes. People’s prejudices and fear of the unknown may lead them to react to him negatively regardless of the good things he has done.

    This may also lead to Superman being a guest star on Oz where he protects Beecher from being raped by Schillinger and Adabesi.

  2. Dude’s looking god as Superman. Definitely going to see this movie.

  3. EricLr

    It’s like my grandpappy used to always say “Kid, unless you have a shitload of Kryptonite on hand, the only way you’re arresting Superman is if he goes voluntarily.”

    Did I mention that grandpappy also molested me? That’s probably unrelated.

  4. Moo Cow Hunter

    Anyone else has a problem with the Man of Steel who can withstand bullets and lift planes being handcuffed?! If the poster has such a big plot hole what will the movie deliver?

    • Montana

      Yea. That the government might do pointless symbolic things in the name of “following procedures” to give the masses the illusion that they have things under control. TOTALLY unrealistic.

    • El Jefe

      That is not as bad as trying to get people to believe that someone with Spiderman’s powers would be shy and reclusive and not a total bully and a dick. If I could fly through the air, crawl up the side of buildings and be strong enough to stop fucking trains, I sure as fuck would not be some shy wallflower nerd that acts scared all the time.

      It would be worse with Superman because he is damn near unkillable.

  5. GenYgirl

    You really think Megan Fox looks “fantastic”? It looks like she doesn’t have enough mobility in her face to smile fully. I would call it “chilling”.

    • Moo Cow Hunter

      Anything artificial she does to that face or body is a sin. (Short of using it for sex.) If she is stupid enough not to appreciate winning the gene lottery she doesn’t deserve to be beautiful.

  6. Deacon Jones

    This is the gayest comic book movie poster. Ever.

    I won’t be caught dead watching this blatant attempt at another cash cow. Hollywood is dead.

  7. This is a reboot? Who did they cast to play Richard Pryor’s character?

    *runs away*

  8. WTF is with his suit? Is anyone missing their tyres on their car? It seems Superman’s suit is guaranteed for another 20000 miles.

    Sometimes its better to not have the video or photos and just rely on memory. I’m sure this new Supes will be great. At least from a filmmaking standpoint. It might suck as entertainment but I guarantee it will be technically sound. Which brings me back to relying on memory. Christopher Reeves will always be Superman in my eyes. He (and Donner) made me believe a man could fly and not because of some green screen or new ILM effects.

    In my opinion, the ONLY way they could do a successful Superman movie today is to tell it from the perspective of the average man on the street. Its the only way to maintain the mystery and excitement of discovery for the viewer. (like MARVELS or Astro City does)

  11. I wonder if this movie will be along the lines of the campy 1978 version with a wooden actor whose only expressions are “confused” or “smirk”, or if it’ll be like the 2006 version where they tried to make it like the 1978 version because making shitty movies to honor an actor who died makes loads of sense.

    Christopher Reeve was a stellar actor…but his Superman movies sucked balls. They’re just bad.

    I still don’t understand the 2006 one. Is it a sequel to the others? Is it a new storyline completely? Either way, why is the plot the same as the 1978 movie?

    • Here’s all you need to know about the 2006 movie: Lois Lane was 22 years old with a son from that time she slept with Superman five years earlier…when she was 17. Aaaaand that’s why he’s in cuffs now.

      It might be campy by today’s standards but in 1978, Superman wasn’t considered camp. In fact, it was the most serious Superman incarnation to date (other than the Fleischer cartoons). The movie changed the entire genre and was a bonafide blockbuster at the box office. It was also nominated for three Oscars. Granted, its hard to argue with someone that says the movie, “sucked balls” but as a young child in 1978, I fucking loved it. Also, the 2006 version was a reboot. It told the same story the first one told but with fancy “non campy” effects that wouldn’t offend the delicate sensitivities of kids born during the 1980s and 90s. (Kids today can’t imagine anything so they have to be spoon fed their movies)

      • I also remember liking the movies as a child, but I grew up…the movie didn’t.

        My point being that some movies are timeless classics, some are trash, some just age poorly. The Christopher Reeve Superman movies are all over the last two categories, and miss the first by a mile. I see no need to over glamorize movies that are unwatchable by modern standards.

        and to be fair, the original was nominated for three Oscars, but not for screenplay or any acting.

      • Also, the 2006 movie was not a reboot. It was a sequel to the first two Superman movies (ignoring III and IV for obvious reasons). But it did tell the same story—right down to Superman’s saving Lois from an air crash where she once again doesn’t understand the function of a seat belt. Hence the source of your confusion, McFeely: it was basically a sequel and a remake. Which, of course, is why it sucked and everyone has more or less forgotten about it.

    What did you guys do? Mobile version sucks. I hit “view full site” but once I try to go to the next page or pic in a gallery, I’m taken back to the fucking mobile site. Ballbags, dude. Fuck.

      Here’s a summary for you kimmy: Superman, as powerful as he is, has the political sensibility of a hood rat and is a scrotum.
