SUPERMAN RETURNS Commercial To Bow On Exciting Superboy Show!!

Published at: Nov. 17, 2005, 12:06 a.m. CST

I am – Hercules!!

Last summer? I dragged my 14-year-old hinder from Studio City down to San Diego to see what Kevin Spacey looked like all bald and fondling a Fortress of Solitude crystal.

It was maybe worth it to hear Brando giving Kal-El a bit of sage advice a zillion years later.

“You’re not Gene Hackman or that guy who played Napoleon Dynamite, but you’re okay.”

If you miss it? My Spidey-Sense tells me Harry or Moriarty or Father Geek might have the new “Superman Returns” footage on the main site PDQ!

“Smallville” airs 8 p.m. Thursday. The WB.









Season sets selling new for just $19.97 per season!!

    ...it's just a crappy teaser. I dont wanna see the real trailer for this until about a month before the movie. I can get myself more excited and have more fun that way. If it's months before the release, it's hard to keep the escitement up and I start looking for flaws and getting worried about the final product. Then again, if I had more of a life it would probably solve this dilemma. www.unseenfilms.com

    Saw it last night

    by BatMajere

    Got to an employee screening of the new Potter flick last night and much to my surprise, one of the previews had the DC Comics logo at the start. Surely, this couldn't be a Superman preview already?? But, it was!. Now I have been apprehensive of this new version of Superman, after reading all I have on this site. Some of the choices Singer has made, have left me in fear that this and X3 are going to be the worst "sequels" ever. But the trailer left me fired up beyond belief, and was much better than the Potter movie. (Minor)SPOILERS The trailer is narrated by Brando dialogue from the original flick, and scored spectacularly with original John Williams music. We get shots of of the Kent Farm, shots of a young Clark jumping through the cornfields. What looks like a young Clark in front of his spaceship. Then we cut to the Daily Planet, Clark in his civvies. An overhead of Superman talking to Lois Lane. And finally, a reveal of the suit and Superman flying! It ends with Supes in space looking down at the Earth. Alas, if there was any Lex Luthor, I missed it. END SPOILERS I may have left a few scenes out, as I was very tired, but I was amazed at how much the trailer actually showed. It left me pumped up for a project I was getting pretty sour on. This was more than your average teaser, let me tell you. Anyway, go see Potter if you want to see this trailer on the big screen. And, um, Smallville rules!

    Would you believe Deadwood? So Brando's in this. Did they have a seance and get his permission? Because he sued everyone and wouldn't even let them use his footage in Superman II. Supes had to talk to his mother about how he'd kill Lois with his super load unless he gave up his powers. Talk about awkward.

    KY and Butt Plugs! Too funny!

    by Hugh Jass

    I'm not so worried about the gayness of Superman Returns, even though Singer is the director and Spacey is Luthor. I'm way more concerned that it will be a lame remake of the Donner/Reeve Superman flicks, which REALLY WEREN'T THAT GOOD! Reeve played Clark Kent like a one dimensional nerdy asshole, not like a real person. Smallville has made huge strides turning Clark/Superman into a real, fleshed out character and not a cartoon. Going back to the Reeve suckfest will just be a step in the wrong direction. Why the fuck didn't Warner Bros. recognize what a great thing they had in Smallville and take it to the big screen when Clark was ready to go from Superboy to Superman. Instead, they have to give it the Daredevil/Catwoman/Fantastic Four treatment and fuck it up royally. Yeah, I know it hasn't been released yet but what is out there isn't looking good.

You know. If you want to excite people, show us Clark flying around like Neo, or even like Tom Welling's "super jumps" on Smallville. I hope I can yawn loud enough when they play this before Harry Potter this weekend. And BatMarjere, if this was better than Potter, somethings seriousley wrong....with your judgement.

    "Exciting"? You misspelled "exiting". Smallville will be exiting at the end of this season to make way for the Superman film franchise. If there's ever an 'exciting' Superboy series paul Dini will be involved. and if there's ever a good Superboy series Lana will be a red head, Martha will have grey hair, Jonathon will have white hair and Clark will have black hair, like in the source material. At least they got Lex's scalp color right. "No cape no fly" my Aunt's patootie. You been conned.

    catwoman business? not a chance...this movie will rule. this is a labor of love for singer and he will not fail us superman-fiends. i will guarantee you this movie, as more of it is revealed over the coming months, will become the must-see event of 2006. it will make 80-100mil opening week(if it comes out around a holiday and opens on a wednesday), or 50-60 mil if it opens on friday. it'll be 200 mil by the time its all said and done(and that's just in the U.S.). if batman begins (a great movie, wholly deserving of its critical praise) can achieve blockbuster status, superman returns will be twice as big simply for the fact that superman has reached an iconic status that no other super-hero ever has; his story has become modern day mythology. everyone will want to see this movie, even you haters on talkback(if you say you won't see it, you're lying). by the way, last week's smallville episode was the best in a long time. loved that clark/brainiac fight at the end. just out of curiosity, is brainiac really from krypton in the comics? not sure.

    BALTIMOREJACK and the "labor of love"

    by lynxpro

    Just because its a labor of love does not mean shizzle to me. *Daredevil* was a "labor of love" for MSJ, and we all know it sucked. *Captain America* was a "labor of love" for Albert Pyunn (sic), and it sucked. *Catwoman* sucked. Both *Batman Returns* and *Batman & Robin* sucked. Everything Ed Wood did was a "labor of love" and they all sucked. So you prove nothing except for your fanboyness and devotion to Bryan Singer's "vision". Call a spade a spade. *Superman Returns* is going to be a turkey that should be served up during Thanksgiving for carving, not for the multiplexes next summer. And it won't make $100 million its first weekend...plus the public prefers Batman to Superman.

    by Shermdawg

    Lex asked Lois if she had any of a certain type of muffin. What's the big deal? You may ask. Well, the muffin he asked for, was so strange, that it garnered a closeup on Lex's face when he uttered the words "banana blueberry". Notice there was no "and" between the "banana" and the "blueberry", meaning that there was both bananas AND blueberries in the muffins he was asking for. These muffins he spoke of must be some sort of strange side effect to the meteor rocks, a mutant muffin if you will. This could be the only explanation because I've heard of banana bread muffins, and blueberry muffins, but a banana blueberry muffin? That is something I have only dreamed of, but tonight's episode proved, that in a small town by the name of, uh, Smallville, dreams indeed can come true.

    Sorry, but don't bet on me seeing the flick...you'd be wise to aim at a box office closer to being above *Serenity* for the flick and not on the high of *Batman Begins*. The trailer was flat. But if you want to waste your $8 on a crappy movie, be my guest. But I'm sticking to my guns and will not see a modern Superman flick until the Smallville cast is put in place in it. I will also not see X3 or Casino Royale either. It will be the great movie boycott of 2006.

    Can't say I'm at all impressed by this trailer. The whole look of the film is just too drab, dark and subdued, with none of the bright, vibrant colorfulness I associate with the character. Oh, and the reason Routh looks younger than Welling is because he IS. Welling is 28. Routh is 26.

    I just don't get the Smallville Devotion

    by The Colonel

    I understand people being thrilled that there is a TV version of Superman. I understand that it's pretty cool that such a great character got a bit of cultural rejiggering, and that every once in a while the show gets a beat or two right. But the fact is Smallville IS NOT A GOOD TV SHOW. Any narrative momentum it has is scuttled by the fact that NOTHING CAN TRULY TAKE PERMANENCE. The show is hamstrung by the Superman mythos and it can tweak stuff and do the "two steps forward, three steps back" thing, which it does, AD NAUSEUM, but it never gains traction because it CAN'T REALLY MOVE FORWARD. Yes, it's nice that Welling looks the part and that his parents are well-played and that it emphasizes his wholesome all-American upbringing and shows how strongly his wholesome, righteous and moral all-American parents shaped his morality and personality and sense of duty. But Welling isn't a very good actor, Kristin Kreuk is a HORRIBLE actress, and the fact that they have kept Lionel Luther around a good 3-4 seasons too long and done such an agonizingly repetitive slowburn on the Lex Is Evil storyline, along with the aforementioned limitations when it comes to PROGRESS all adds up to a subpar show. If it wasn't about Superman it wouldn't be watched at all. Some of the episodes are EMBARRASSING. Most of them end with some ridiculous "I saw him show his powers but then I forgot" storyline. The lack of a seasonal villain arc has also hurt the show, as has their obsession with bouncing Significant Characters From Superman's Future into the storyline in absurd ways. Not to mention the pathetic geographic proximity of Metropolis. The best episodes were the ones that played Williams' score and focused on the SUPERMAN aspect of Clark and not on the "I Love Lana" crap that was old by the second season of Wonder Years in 1988. I love Superman too. But that doesn't mean I'll accept any second-rate incarnation of his story. Smallville is below-average TV most of the time and I for one am glad that Singer and WB stayed away from it when making the new movie.

  • Nov. 18, 2005, 10:20 a.m. CST

    Haven't we seen this episode before?

    by God-Man

    A Smallville episode where one of the Kents get sick, and Clark has an emotional scene with whoever is dying about not giving up and blah blah blah? The episode in itself was good, but I can't get past the fact that the producers put the characters in the same situations every week, but act as if they never went through anything like it before. By now, if Lana or Chloe go crazy, Clark shouldn't act like he has never seen that before. Because it has happened. Repeatedly. However, I am glad that Smallville is more consistenly fowarding their major subplots. Last year, the stones storyline dragged on with no cohesive story, and wrapped up in confusing fashion. This year, they are moving the Braniac storyline quickly and efficently, so as not to get lost. I can't wait to see what Braniac will do next. It would be even easier to keep track with Smallville's storylines if they would include a recap at the beginning of every episode, or every one in which they will address a subplot. Smallville's much improved this season even if they still give Clark the same problems to solve. BTW, is Jor-El still in control of Lionel Luthor?

    by dengreg31

    is that people who don't like something and "don't watch it" come on here and give unbelievably detailed info on the episodes, and feel the need to tear something down that is enjoyed by others. So it can't move forward by leaps and bounds because it's hamstrung by it's own future. So freakin' what. House, CSI, E.R., etc...same episode each week. Still worth watching. If you don't like it, dont' watch it and do something else.

    I DON'T watch it. But I DID give it a shot and DID watch the Reeve eps and got suckered back in by the actual Superman stuff, but then left it. My issue isn't with people watching the show, God knows we all have favorites and who am I to judge, per se, I just think people go overboard in declaring Smallville and its cast the ultimate incarnation of Superman and harping on the fact that the new movie isn't falling in line with that stuff. Take the show for what it is and stop whining that the movie isn't the show. Sorry to offend you but I thought my comments were a hell of a lot more measured and restrained than most posts.

    by _Maltheus_

    PSUEDO-SPOLIER SINCE THEY MADE IT SO DAMN OBVIOUS ... The duhn-duhn-duhn music, right as they cut into the credits pretty much spelled out that Johnny Kent is the one to go. I was hoping they'd go in a less obvious direction. Especially since he's probably the best character on the show (taking over since Lex dropped the baton). END SPOILER ............. Is Jor-El alive or dead? I'm not sure that they've ever been clear on that. I got the impression last night, from Fines, that he was still alive. .......... I've never been one to point out Welling's acting ability before, but that scene with his dying mother was one of the worst performances that I've ever witnessed. I fully get what everyone means now. Thankfully, they don't have him doing emotional scenes much during the show. I just watch for the fun parts anyway. I'm good at compartmentalizing like that. ........... Superman Returns looks like a cheesy remake so far. I was put off by them using Marlon Brando's voice. They couldn't find another actor, in all of Hollywood to do his voice? Plus, I find it disgusting when dead actors are forced to work against their will. Mother Fuck whoever's decision that was. I'm gonna find out your name and then piss on YOUR grave when you're dead. But necromancy aside, I keep on hearing how they're trying to model everything after I and II. It sounds like the Bewitched or Dukes of Hazzard style of movies to me. I want NEW, not OLD. Why is that so hard for Hollywood to figure out? Are they all so drugged up and culted out, that they're just completely incapable of creative thought anymore? I've got Superman on DVD, I can just watch that instead I guess. It wasn't a great movie, but it sounds about the same in any case.

  • Apparently Allison Mack has been contracted to appear in 3 episodes of ER that will air sometime in February. Considering that the producers shoot smallville in Vancouver and ER is shot in Chicago I have a hard time believing she will be able to do both shows. I hope I'm wrong but this news makes it seem like Chloe is done for.

    No problem. Thanks for the reply. I have never said this is the "ultimate" version of Superman, it's just one. And this season they have done a really nice job of tying into the '78 film with the fortress, etc...I'm sure the movie will be great, and I can't wait to see it. Rosetta was a great ep...but I think this season is by far the best so far.. And Chloe is SO going to be the one to die...Inspires Clark to take up the hero mantle, Lois to become a reporter, etc etc...

    Boy was that film a snoozefest. Seriousley, it actually put me to sleep, which has never happened in a theater before. The last one was great, but Goblet? Zzzzzz...

    Chloe WAS a likely candidate for death...

    But did you all not watch the last minute of last night's ep. Granted, that could be deflection, but not in a show as simple as Smallville. They made it quite clear who would die.

    SMALLVILLE is definitely in Kansas. This isn't an open-ended thing like the SIMPSONS/Springfield thing. I can't site a specific example at the moment, but "Smallville" - as fictional as it is - is a given Superman/Kansas "landmark." Sorry for the excessive quotation marks and slashes.
