The last statement sums it up nice. As I said in my post, his anger and hatred and need for revenge has been seething for at least fourty or fifty years now...when he finally does get to release it, his action is vicious beyond words.

Best,

Regarding Superman's IMAX 3-D...this movie was adjusted (electronically) from regular to the 3-D format.
Looks fantastic...but
just imagine how cool it will be when the intial digital photography and FX etc. will be specifically for 3-D aspects as Cameron, Lucas and many other producers are planning for, for their major releases....though rumors are that lots of older films (Star Wars etc.) will be prepped and reconfigured for a 3-D release as well.

Neato.

Supes 3-D was mostly the crashing plane near the open and a couple of other scenes.

I certainly hope that there will be non-3D versions of the movies made as well otherwise I'll just have to give up going to the movies. I only have one working etye and all the various versions of 3D I've experienced so far are unwatchable as viewing them with one eye makes them either fuzzy or too dim to see. I can't see the real world in 3D so why would I want my movies that way either?

Good point...you'll just have to keep your eye on the scene.

Marvel is currently making plans to make a Captain America movie. I hope they don't give it to the team that made "Superman Returns". I'm not sure a movie called, "Captain All That Stuff," would do well at the box office.

Captain Marvel was my favorite...

I had a draft of a screen play for Christopher Reeve to be in a Superman film in a wheelchair. A couple of major movie guys liked the idea.

Basically Reeve played Superman (using a few bits from earlier films when he was healthy) and is SEVERELY INJURED and winds up in a wheelchair. The basic plot was to SEARCH for a new person to take over his powers.

A candidate is found. Reeve, as the inujured S-MAN is placed into the "chamber" and the new man is about to be put in a "recieving chamber", but at the LAST SECOND it is found he is a BAD GUY, a son of Lex Luther... and a young kid from the Daily Planet pushes him out of the way, and falls into the "recieving chamber" and HE BECOMES THE NEW S MAN.

What do ya thinque? (too late tho, with the sad loss of Reeve).

A few questions:

1) How in the world does Lois survive getting impregnated by Superman? You'd think she'd be vaporized by the very act!

2) Assuming she somehow survives the first part, how does she survive Superbaby kicking? I'm thinking that within the first 3 or 4 kicks, the baby has performed its own caesarian.

3) Does this kid being fathered by Superman mean that the classic pure-as-the-driven-snow Superman has been tossed out, along with "the American way?"



Well , I will go with the other continuities that say Supes didn't develop powers until he's much older. Meaning, as a baby, that is all he is, a delicate baby.
Perhaps same could be said for the little Jason? I dunno, just a possibility.

Just to let everyone in the Portland OR area, IMAX is not showing Superman Returns in 3D at that location.

I saw an interview of the costume designer for Superman. She said the suit costs around the same price as a Porsche Carrera.

According to the news, it looks like they made some of that money back bringing in $84 million since it opened. That is bigger than Batman Begins opening sales. Batman Begins and Superman Returns are my favorite superhero movies now.

Y'know, I understand the animosity towards the line, but when Supes said; "Truth, Justice and the American Way" back in '78, it not only got a laugh but had to be followed by Lois' "You're going to end up taking on every elected offical in Washington!"

Now, it's even more cynical than then. Smile

Walmart carries all of them. They have everything on Superman. And at about $5.50 at my local one.

In the first movie, he picks up the Kent truck when it slips off the jack.

Word is that many of the older Supey films will be undergoing the "Special Edition" treatment in the very near future. So for you folks who hate those cardboard snap cases, and want the possibility of some new special features, improved picture and sound, etc, you may want to wait it out a little bit.

I'll post more specific info as I find it.

http://www.thedigitalbits.com is a good place to get info like that. They keep pretty up-to-date.

Still no comments on "I hear everything" or his vists to their house?

Not certain where you're getting "fourty or fifty years" from. Presumbably it's only been a few years since the events of "Superman II."
