i was just suggesting you separated them and merged them here.
I'm just having a bit of fun, jeez.

That's not... what? UrbanDictionary, why are you so terrible?

Yeah so uh it's slang from the 1930's, meaning "a foolish, insignificant, or contemptible person." So in other words, you. :smug:

BUT NOOOO... they had to reboot the Superman universe, do a lot of tie-in movies, and didn't throw enough money at Chris Nolan to stick around to make it work properly.
Rebooting Superman was their best option; Returns might not have been a flop, but it didn't really get anyone enthused and sequels were unlikely to change that, nor would they do much better at the box office. Making Returns a sequel to a 20+ year old movie in the first place was a terrible idea that would've weighed down the franchise even if Returns been successful.

As for Nolan, I'm sure they tried to keep him around, but he isn't the type to stick with a franchise; they barely got him to do TDK and TDKR as it is.

Not to mention the obvious that not rebooting it would have meant adding more years on top of that while dragging the backstory of all the previous movies. A reboot was the obvious choice if they weren't going to make Superman 50 years older than everyone else.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.

Even so, I suppose it was a better option than going with J.J. Abrams' "Superman: Flyby" script. You know, the one where Krypton doesn't explode. And Superman is sent to earth "to fulfill a prophecy" or something. Starring Scarlett Johansson as Lois Lane, Johnny Depp as Lex Luthor, Christopher Walken as Perry White, and Shia LaBeouf as Jimmy Olsen.

I just threw up in my mouth a little.

Nolan's just in talks to be a producer, though.

And merging the Batman of the Nolan movies with more fantastical superheroics seems iffy to me.

I don't know about it, all depends about how would be Man of Steel. Maybe not as Justice League, but I would love a Superman/Batman movie with Cavill and Bale. But as it was said in the article:

Keep in mind, the reports are that negotiations and talks are still ongoing and nothing is set in stone yet. So, this news is all tentative at the moment, but the reports from Latino Review jibe with what I’ve heard from some of my own sources. Batman-On-Film (BOF) has some additional insights in Bill Ramey’s report as well.

It's totally realistic and not at all silly looking. I mean, what else could they use, spandex? Don't make me laugh, that would never work.

True that... how silly of me. What would come next then? Red briefs over his pants? That would be too silly!

Exactly.
And I still don't get why they ditched the red briefs. The costume looks ridiculous without it.

... Yes, it does. It definitely does. This trailer has me impressed.
That is Superman, even though he doesn't quite dresses like him.

I still do have concerns that were raised by the trailer, such as the implication that Clark hides himself away from the world (at the urging of Pa Kent) for some period of time as an adult (this being the bearded, oil rig worker shots). Thankfully he's shown to still save people, but this, along with some other things, seems to indicate that Clark does not decide to become Superman himself, and instead is pushed onto that path by a computer version or recording of Jor-El, which is that bullshit and overbearing "SUPERMAN IS CHRIST" metaphor that has popped up into nearly every live action adaptation since the first Reeve movie, and which reached its apex in Smallville, where Clark was so obnoxiously petulant about having to save people that it took 10 freaking seasons for him to deign to put on the cape.

I really really hate this version, because once Jor-El puts his baby in the rocket, his role in the story should be over. He shouldn't loom over Clark's life, telling him what to do, or teach him about math for 12 years or whatever the fuck happened in the '78 movie, or tell him to become Superman. Clark needs to make that decision himself, based on the way the Kent's raised him, not on what the computer simulacrum of a man he never knew tells him to do.

But this is all speculation, of course, the movie itself could turn out in any direction. I HAVE STRONG FEELINGS ABOUT SUPERMAN OKAY

You and me both, sister. ;P
Superman defined Superheroes for me. He was the champion of my childhood, well above all the other heroes I loved.
So I am too have strong feelings about him and how he should behave and be presented.

Edit: ARGHHHH!
I just learned that due to FIFA Confederations Cup, we will only be getting this movie here on July 12th, instead o June 14th! GAH!
I want to kill someone.
