Oh, and while a theme is developing...

I see that the role of SUPERMAN has been cast for the new version currently in pre-production. Its some kid I've never heard of. Brandon Routh.

Fair enough, but if you're going to hire a guy that young to play Kal El, why not just cast that guy out of SMALLVILLE? Its good, its popular, so your movie will have a core fanbase to build on, and has a great cast of sexy principals already in place. Plus, with all those cheap-as-chips TV actors as your cast, all the money you save goes to pay for the special effects. And really, that's what the downfall of the old Superman movies was: when the comicbook Superman can push planets out of orbit, what's the big wow about him struggling to stop a runaway train?
