Don We Now Our Gay Apparel

Two things that never appeared previously in the Superman Comics Universe:

•  Fashionably color-dampened Superman without his bulging red underpants.

•  Stylishly-bearded Cluck Bent answers Bruce Campbell’s immortal book title, If Chins Could Kill.


Sad to say, that’s all I know about The Man Of Steel franchise that debuts its first $1.95 burger platter later this year. For all intents and purposes, it looks like The Man Of Steel will more nearly resemble That Guy From Last Night or audition-losing talent who weren’t selected for the Brawny paper towel wrapper. If Jor-El sucks as badly in this film as he did during ten years of hyperventilating fatherhood in the TV series Smallville, the next Superman film will be the last one ever…starring Michael Richards.

Zod is played by Michael Shannon. In addition to being a terrific actor (some here may know him as Nelson Van Alden from HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire,” and I’ve seen him onstage in Chicago several times), Shannon could write a retort to Campbell’s tome entitled “If Foreheads Could Kill.” (Actually, used correctly, I guess they can. Except FOREHEADS don’t kill people! PEOPLE with large foreheads kill people. With their foreheads.)

So yeah—I’ll be seeing it for Shannon.

Trunks. Not “underpants”. TRUNKS. Pet peeve of mine.

If they use that wavy camera technique through the whole movie I think they better put motion sickness bags out for people!

Is it just me or does it seem like the trailer is a bad cellphone recording of a TV commercial?

Close—it’s a bad cellphone recording of the trailer as it was presented at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.

PEOPLE with large forehead kill people

...yes, but only after their overtures of love are rejected.

Gotta love If Chins Could Kill... I also dig “Make Love” the Bruce Campbell Way- his contrast of an A-movie actress and a B-movie actress is hilarious.

I got nothin’ on Superman, and Superman and Green Lantern ain’t got nothin’ on me, but thought I might just stop by and offer Strange some happy-new-year wishes.  You know, for the new year.  May your 2013 be infinity times better than your highest hopes for it….

@Michael Bérubé: And a Mellow Yellow New Year to your wonderful self, sir!

After pimping some of Mrs. Polly’s old Orliad posts at Basset Dude’s place, it occurred to me that I haven’t visited here in ages.  And here’s an NYE thread with still-open comments!

So much belatedly - as is my style - I’ll join the high-falutin’ literary and edumacated hockey fan upthread, and add my Happy New Year wishes to Strange and everyone else here.
