I mean, how dare Clark be proud of his accomplishments as the Blur. He should just save people as an emotionless robot. Jor-El knows best. So Clark should just let Jor-El do all the thinking for him.
+1. Looks like we are inching very slowly toward THAT moment. All the heroes are beginning to see they've got something bigger for their destinies. The suit has been sighted! And for a moment I thought for sure, Clark was dropping that plane ticket and about to leap up. YAH RIGHT! WHAT WAS I THINKING?
So as for Darkseid, if shadowy guy in barn (in the preview) is how they are treating it....BOO! They pulled the Doomsday can be human bit....fine I let that go. But don't do it again with Darkseid.
Movies tangent: Christopher Nolan and his brother Jonathan are helping reboot the Superman franchise. We can all think of "Superman Returns" like "The Incredible Hulk". It was not a reboot, it was not really a sequel. It was a stand-alone story. I think the loud and clear sentiment is WE ARE TIRED OF LEX. But I don't know....Superman just doesn't do well as a movie. It does well as a series. But I guess with the right writers they can make it work. Lex would have to be in the story at some point in the reboot though. Braniac is an excellent villain and could tie in with Lex for the first movie. Even though it would be really early in the storyline, Doomsday could even work for the 2nd with a huge death "cliffhanger". Then he comes back in the third and maybe takes on the Cyborg or Darkseid. Those are all the token villains.
The problem has always been they make up their own thing for the movies; they haven't followed the comics like the other franchises. With Chris Nolan in the project, I feel pretty confident we'll finally get something worth seeing in the Superman universe.
So if you really want to look forward though, how about a Justice League movie to counter The Avengers? YAH RIGHT!!!! They'll never get [new Superman actor (not Routh, whoever is going to be in the reboot)], Christian Bale for Batman, Ryan Reynolds for Green Lantern, the Flash (in development), Wonder Woman (maybe??? heard rumors), etc together.
