Can't wait! Looks like a completely new take on Superman. It could be awesome.

Have to admit this one looks good.


I was never a fan of superman I always found him kinda cheesy and preferred the darker comic book heroes, like Batman etc.

I liked Smallville though, there was something good about that. Trailer looks really good though. :tu:

Yeah, yeah, we've seen the Man of Steel. Can we get a good Wonder Woman? Not Megan Fox!

Aye he seems to be a lot darker in this one. I much prefer the dark comics myself.

I heard the pilot that got binned last year was supposed to be pretty good.

Ever seen a Silver Age comic? Those were the best of days. You had Batbaby. BATBABY.

I heard about that but I wasn't holding out much hope for it. Much like the WB idea for a live action Raven series. Now that I would love to see.

I'm sick of the same old superheroes getting "rebooted", "remade", "reinvented", "regurgitated". How about something NEW for a change? Maybe because no one in H'wood is really that clever?

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

I got one....


Binman/Garbageman. He comes and collects the rubbish/garbage from the streets every night.

Why don't they just pick a superhero who hasn't already been made into a movie? Blue Beetle anyone?

Theres too much risk in originality, It could succeed or it could bomb. Nobodies willing to take that chance Im sad to say

COME WITH ME. OVERWHELMING POWER AND MADNESS AWAIT

THAT IS NOT DEAD WHICH CAN ETERNAL LIE AND WITH STRANGE AEONS EVEN DEATH MAY DIE

I think another network is picking the series up, except it's going to be an origin story (bit of a TV and sci fi geek here).

I agree though, the world of superheroes is rife with sexism. I don't think their writers have had the benefit of the Spice Girls ;)

Personally I love it. Can't get enough of it.

If you want a new and original superhero film, check out 'Chronicle'. It's one of the best ones I've seen. Full stop. http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt1706593/

Seriously, everyone should see that film, in HD if they can.

Thanks for the tip! I'll look into it. But I know I won't see it in HD.

Sexism in comic books?! Nowai?! -fake shock- Look up Atop the Fourth Wall, it's a Internet reviewer, by the catch sign of Linkara who points how the staggering differences between superheroes and superheroines in a lot of his reviews.
