Dave and Greg are currently being amused by Superdickery. Poor Jimmy seems to bear the brunt of Superman's dickishness

Poor Jimmy 1.

Poor Jimmy 2.

Poor Lois.

Found this in [ profile] spikeylover's journal

Some news just in on JAMES:

At this point, fans were able to ask their own questions to the panelists as one fan asked if any voice actors from "JLU" animated series will carry over to the movies. The answer was a firm ‘No,’ but they went further by revealing some of the new voices of the "Superman: Doomsday" movie. Adam Baldwin will be the voice of Superman, Ann Heche will provide the voice for Lois Lane, and James Marsters will voice Lex Luthor. Fans may remember that Marsters voiced Brainiac in "Smallville" quite recently.

and this..

The cast for the feature cartoon is taking a bit of a different twist. Though sporting Timm's typical clean, block-style designs, the voices will be different. Gone is the talent behind Justice League Unlimited. Tim stated that he really wanted to differentiate these projects from the past serialized shows. To that end, he revealed three of the main characters in the story and the talent attached to them. Adam Baldwin will be portraying the Man of Steel himself, Clark Kent. Anne Heche will be taking on the role of Lois Lane. James Marsters, known as Spike to many, will be doing a new take on Lex Luthor. Timm specifically noted that the writing team had reconstructed and analyzed Luthor to find a suitable role for this project.

and also, a really Spike positive review on the comic:

Well, it's nice that James is getting new work. I think Adam Baldwin will be good as Superman, and I am interested in James's take on Lex. I wonder if Mike will transfer over like Adam has or if he's done with cartoons now

Superman theme song with lyrics

Ok, so I watched Superman Returns and it makes a lot of difference watching it straight after watching 1 and 2.

Some thoughts. Spoilery if you haven't seen Returns yet )

But, with that in mind, a poll

[Poll #897885]

I've included 3 and 4 even though they suck, just in case some poor deluded soul likes them ;)

Remember that post I did about not wanting to grow up? Well, evidently I haven't

Here's why )

"Come to me, son of Jor-El. Kneel before Zod!"

Hee! I'd forgotten just how much I love this film. I haven't watched it since I was little and watching it again now I realise just how much of it I didn't get before.

I'm looking forward to watching the Richard Donner cut tomorrow. I hear it's quite different from the final version of the film.

Ok, this has confused me for a while and I'm probably over-analysing it but lets see what people think. Superman. The first movie. Lois dies and Superman makes the earth spin backwards to reverse time so she doesn't die. But surely if time has gone backwards then he hasn't stopped the two nuclear missiles. Right? So how does that work? *confused*

I went all wibbly when Lois is interviewing Superman in her garden. So sweet! I really have to look at the Superman movies and Smallville as two totally different and unconnected entities. I mean Smallville is pretty far away from Superman canon, right? Lex and Clark didn't really know each other. In fact, the first time Lex and Superman meet is in this first movie. So Smallville is like an AU? An AU where Lex is his best friend (at first) and I can happily slash them. Then in canon Superman it's Superman/Lois all the way

What I do find interesting is the different takes on the secret identity. In the movies Clark is Superman's secret identity (ooh, and in the directors cut it's all explained about why he had to have a secret identity) but in Smallville (and I believe in Lois and Clark too) Superman is Clark's secret identity. Verrry interesting

Anywho, gotta go watch Dr Who in a few minutes

Hope you're all having a great Christmas.

Christopher Reeve dies at 52

I was just talking about him last night. Dave and I were talking about the proposed new Superman film and I said Christopher Reeve would always be Superman as far as I was concerned. I was totally in love with him when I was a kid

This is just so sad
