Pictures have leaked online of Russell Crowe as Jor-El, Superman’s father in Man of Steel, 2013′s movie redo of DC’s original superhero, and by the look of him, Krypton has a new look allowing shaggy hair not like the hair in Richard Donner’s original movie:
And the suit has the appearance of armor which adds to the mystery of the suit of Superman possibly being indestructible. more to come I am sure. The new Action Comics written by GRANT MORRISON is interesting because it seems the cape of Superman is indestructible in the New 52 DC Comic world. This was relieved in Action Comics #2 when General Lane captured an unconscious Superman after he stopped a run away train and saved all the people aboard, and was knocked out for a short time. He was being experimented on by Lex Luther at the Armies request. When he recovered he broke free and recovered his cape which was shown to stop bullets and be invulnerable from harm.
Another surprise is the fact that Lois Lane appears to have red hair. This is a shocking change from its comic roots: Amy Adams’ Lois Lane has red hair. While I think it is not unusual to change things but in every version of Lois she has had dark hair. I guess that is OK it will just take sometime to get used to like Samuel L. Jackson the first Black man as Nick Fury in Marvels Movie Avengers. What next will Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man have black hair instead of red like in the comics. Well if the production Man of Steel is good I could care less. Just give us a movie worth the price of admission. The movies are a visual media and appearances are important in the 21st century.
Superman’s name is known through out the world reaching to every continent. Because of this a new revelation of the Superman legend in Man of Steel, I am looking for something good that retains all the things we like about Superman. This looks like an interesting movie. Stay tuned comic faithful for more. 🙂 Walt
