Episode 358: EPIC MAN OF STEEL EPISODE! Sean and Jim are joined by long time friend of the show, Art Lyon. This is the second of a two part discussion with Art. We discuss Man of Steel. There are also a number of listener voicemail comments relating to the film. There is also a quick voicemail about Green Arrow and Forever Evil rumors.
Listener voicemails from Brandon, Jay, D’Angelo, Eli, and Hugo.
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.
Episode 246: Comics and Smallville are the focus of this episode. We discuss Smallville episodes Fortune and Scion from season 10. We chat a bit about the Superman Movie news and Batman Live! Also, we talk about Detective Comics 874, Teen Titans 92, Gotham City Sirens 20, Brightest Day 21, Green Lantern 63 and Secret Six 31 in a very packet episode.
We also share a few listener emails and comments. At the end of the show, we announce our 5 year anniversary contest! Celebrate with us!
I’ll be honest. When the news broke that Henry Cavill had been cast as Clark Kent/Superman, I said, “Who?” I have never seen the Tudors, or anything else he’s been in, for that matter.
If I can be shallow for a moment–and I can because it’s my column–he has the look. Give the boy a shave, an appropriate haircut, and some specs and he could very easily be Clark Kent. Take off the specs and put the spit curl into effect and he’s Superman. And for all our sakes, let’s hope that he’s able to learn a Midwestern accent. (And yes, people from the Midwest have an accent.)
When it comes to Cavill, I’m willing to give Christopher Nolan and Zach Snyder the benefit of the doubt. For now.
I want so bad to be excited for this movie. I want to geek out about it. I want to have faith that this is going to be an interpretation that isn’t going to leave a sour taste in my mouth. So…I decided to make a short list of things I feel need to be present for this movie to be a success.
