His friends call him Jim. You're not one of the cool crowd.

Exclusive: 'Man of Steel' Will Reveal A New Krypton & More!

 

You will see JOR-EL and his wife, Lara.

 

Daniel Day-Lewis was looked at for JOR-EL and not the villain.

 

Krypton will not be a crystal planet like the Donner film; this Krypton will PROBABLY look like the Coruscant skyline from Star Wars. (See image below)

 

The Kryptonian villainess is not URSA...Well sort of. The villainess is FAORA.

Id be quite happy to see a different version of Krypton to the crystal one weve seen over the past few years. I wonder as well how this Faora will be depicted, from what ive read shes ranged from one of Zod's lackeys to Jor Els buddy to Zods wife.

Heard of Faora, but the ultimate Kryptonian villains for me will always be Jax-Ur and Mala. <3

Is This The Officially Registered Plot Premise For The Man Of Steel?

 

A lot of the data and information on movies that ends up online and in print seems to have its roots in The Baseline Studio System. Once upon a time, in the misty history of 2009, back when nobody knew what the Shyamalan-scripted Devil was going to be about, I found its “top secret synopsis” listed as Baseline data. Their blurb proved to be 100% accurate.

 

Several other times I’ve seen casting listed that has gone on the become news breaks in the trade papers a few days or weeks later. I’m pretty sure that Baseline Studio System data has a very high accuracy rate, even with things that remain unreported on the “surface” of the media.

 

So, now that I see they’re listing a plot premise for The Man of Steel, I’m inclined to believe they’ve got it right.

 

Here’s what they say, word for word:

 

A young reporter named Clark Kent roams the world covering various news stories. When he is compelled to use his secret powers to intervene in a crisis in West Africa, he returns to Smallville to learn more about his origins and the hero he was born to be.

To be fair Birthright was based on Supermans history, it just delved into it more than other origins did. In pretty much every one, Clark travelled the world before becoming Man O Super.

Yeah, but in Superman Birthright he went to West Africa, was forced to use his powers to intervene in a crisis, and then travelled back to Smallville to learn more about himself :heh:

Well either way it doesnt really matter. The one thing im hoping is that part wont be too long, weve all seen his origin enough times. Id rather see a Superman who has been around for a few years. In fact id rather that whole part was a flashback, maybe used during whatever happens with Zod.

Have we really seen his origin that much though? The flashback in Returns was nothing, the origin in Superman I was over 30 years ago, and kids of today won't have seen it. Smallville was 10 years ago and changed things a lot to suit a long running series. Even though it's been told a hundred times in the comics, your average cinema goer won't have read any of them. I'd love to see it get the Batman Begins treatment! At least for the first quarter.

I wouldnt be suprised if the vast majority know Supermans origins in the same way most know why Bruce is Batman. I dont want to see the origins for long in this film if atall.

Origins will be a big part. This is Superman for a new generation. I think it needs an origins. It needs a distinct start point. Otherwise it'll be all Superman Returns again.

 

I'd like to see Krypton given some real time on screen, too.

 

Birthright was rumoured to be the story the film was based on, anyways.

I managed to find one person who didn't know Supermans origin, but they turned out to be an alien, crash landed from a dead world, so I let them off.

 

I don't want to see another shitty origin story either, but if it has to be in it can be easily covered in 5 minutes, 10 max. It's Superman for Gods sake, and with a villain who can go toe to toe with him, not some dodgy estate agent with a green rock. I expect epic fight scenes, lots of amazing action, not some kid discovering their powers and history, we've had that for the last 10 years.

I am a fan of the Han and I don't quite know why.

 

Probably because Mean Girls and Herbie Fully Loaded are awesome.

Lindsey Lohan as Lana Lang? Really?

 

Is that actually being reported somewhere because I cant find any news on it anywhere.

 

If not then the Lohan casting rumour has been going around for ages and nothing has come of it.

This is now simply called Man of Steel, probably Nolan's influence at work there.

Please let that be the only influence he has on the film.

Since he's helping write, produce and develop it, that seems unlikely.

Well, I just hope he's not stupid enough to think he can make it 'realistic'. It might have worked for Batman, for some people anyway, but that won't wash with Superman.

It probably has something to do with being about an invincible super being from another planet rather than a rich dude with dead parents and a fear of bats.
