Wow! This Superman film is really coming together with acting talent. I am thrilled with each announcement because it seems like forever since Superman has been on the big screen. I am glad they are giving this character a fresh start. I think the reason why the Donner films are so beloved is because they stood on their own and defined an era for Superman. For this new film to gain that kind of love, it needs to do the same thing. I am excited at the possibilities.
