Upon Mature Reflection [And I Hope I'm Right]... MoS  
  • I seem to remember getting a few misleading spoilers from Variety back when SR was in pre- and post-production. So, really, I'm not so sure I trust them to not be incorrect here.
  • Didn't they say that he wasn't going with another origin story? I seem to remember that being said at one point. Also, didn't SV go the Lana route not too long ago and wreck canon? Yeah, not so sure.
  • Did anyone stop to think maybe she's Kara? Since the three mentioned in the article as being in the running are all very blonde? And nothing approaching red? Honestly, if we do get Lana at any point, you all know I want Amy Adams. And a decent characterization. And her NOT with Clark.
  • Also wondering if maybe Lois isn't in the film until the second half? Which wouldn't 'technically' make her the female lead. Maybe there's a reason that she isn't in it as much?

This is all I've got so far, but I'm really curious to see what Mr. Snyder's up to here. He knows he has to please a diverse amount of fans. The action needs to be there, the romance needs to be there, and he needs to give us something new that amazes us. Honestly, deep down, I'm not going to let myself freak out too hard, because I remember the way the media twisted us into knots during SR. Take it with a pillar of salt, you guys. We'll see what happens.

Totes agree. Everything outside of real promos straight from the studio is speculation, IMHO, designed to turn us all into a froth. *L*

Like you said, everything's just rumours at this point. I mean, everyone from twitter to "real" entertainment avenues were talking about Kristin Stewart short-listed for Lois Lane but she & her reps said they hadn't been approached at all. They also said "female lead that wasn't Lois Lane" not "No Lois Lane at all."

I'm just going to sit back, zen out & imagine Rashida Jones wearing a power suit & eating maple-dipped doughnuts. ;)

And they will do it. They did it constantly during SR. The whole fandom was ready to kill each other before the promos even came out.

Sounds gorgeous. May I join you? This sounds like what we're going to be doing next weekend. XD Only with Cuban food. ;)

YES. I'm trying to pack. What does "showers" mean in Florida? Here it means anything from a constant mist like walking through a cloud to a raspberry. Also, humidity?
Lois: Lois :: Smart-Ass Grinkalalanekent on February 4th, 2011 09:45 pm (UTC)
It translates to "gross". It'll be rainy for a while. It's going to be steamy weather, though without much heat, unless a cold front shows up [PLEASEGODPLEASEPLEASEGOD!]. Not quite mist, but kind of 'close'-feeling. Muggy. Not sure if you've dealt with temps like that. But we'll be indoors some of the time, so....

I've been to the Philippines recently, so I have an idea. I'm still playing with the idea of going kayaking even if I'm by myself, providing they leave early enough ie) finish by 10/11 a.m.
Lois: Lois :: Gigglekalalanekent on February 4th, 2011 10:00 pm (UTC)
Woman, you are a mess. You are NOT going to want to kayak in that kind of weather. XD
Katt: SV: Home (Bloodlines trilogy)xenokattz on February 4th, 2011 10:04 pm (UTC)
Really? Aw, darn. I was hoping if they started early enough, it wouldn't be ridiculously sticky. I've done semi-decent hikes around the Philippines in humid weather. One just said they don't start until 10am so that's scratched off my list.
Lois: LS :: Jason :: Snifflekalalanekent on February 4th, 2011 10:07 pm (UTC)
I'm sorry, bb. But it's the showers that'll make it more difficult. Weather here changes really fast and the rain can get serious sometimes.
Kattxenokattz on February 4th, 2011 10:12 pm (UTC)
Ah, poo. :(( But Cuban food!
Lois: Lois :: Smilekalalanekent on February 4th, 2011 10:36 pm (UTC)
Yeh, I say we order a ton of appetizers. It all looks good to me.

I love how we're all of the 'keep calm and carry on' variety once we digest what we've seen. Here's hoping rumors are just that. *snugs*

Here, have a doughnut. *moves over on the coach*

Annnnnd now they're denying that, as well. Here we go again. It's pre-SR for the second time.
saavikam77: Clark Jimmy Photosaavikam77 on February 4th, 2011 09:48 pm (UTC)
I think we're at that point where people are making things up whole-hog, so I'm not even listening anymore. Hell, I'm still covering my ears and chanting 'Bring Routh Back', like it could make any difference now. :/

Lois: Lois :: Caughtkalalanekent on February 4th, 2011 10:02 pm (UTC)
Yeah, but you and I have been through this before and how. We'll be seein' what we'll be seein'.

*shoves a doughnut in your mouth and drags you onto the couch* In the meantime, let's discuss how our stories make more sense than WB's scripts.
saavikam77: Jasonsaavikam77 on February 4th, 2011 10:28 pm (UTC)
*gladly accepts donut and plops down with you*

DC and WB would do a damn sight better if they'd just read some of our fic over here. Harumph. Rebooting is NOT the answer, but damn if any of the fans could talk a bit of sense into TPTB. And I'm still ticked that the reboot means that Jason is gone. Poof. That's gotta be the only real reason they're even doing it.

I need a 'damn right I'm bitter' icon. Heh.
Lois: LS :: Jason :: Snifflekalalanekent on February 4th, 2011 10:42 pm (UTC)
Christ, do I feel you on that one. I think all the bitching about 'WHHHHHHYYYYYY does he have a KIIIIIIIIIDDDDD! It makes him something LEEEEEEEEESSSSS to be a DAAAAAAAAAAD!' whining fanboy bullshit put an end to that. So, he can have sex. they expect him to, but he can't get married, can't be a dad, can't act remotely like a really good man. Gotcha, guys.

Make me a second one if you make it?
saavikam77: Bulletproof!saavikam77 on February 4th, 2011 11:48 pm (UTC)
I had to go grab a shower, but it gave me a chance to think about it, and really, it's like the fanboys have a virgin/whore complex about their superheroes. Either they can be bad ass and carry guns and sleep around and leave kids all over the place (Bruce, Ollie, etc), or they can be virtuous, pure Boy Scouts, come out looking like Christ-figures. They treat their heroes like they treat women. >_< Makes me want to smack some sense into them.

Then there was the whole 'deadbeat dad' outcry that *still* makes me gnash my teeth, b/c gods freaking dammit, Clark didn't KNOW.


There's meta in this, I think, and it's starting to look more and more like something else we can blame on Christianity and patriarchal societies in general. Hrm.

Will definitely do 2 if I find good images for a 'bitter' icon. *ponders*

And let's not even go into the fact that there are people out there that would rather the two of them do this dance of friends and lovers until they're old and gray. But, of course, he's still sleeping with her. Whether she knows the secret or not. But he can't commit to her because then it would CHANGE EVERYTHING!!1111!

....right. *glares*
saavikam77: Clark Facesaavikam77 on February 5th, 2011 05:32 am (UTC)
...which brings me back to wanting to smack some sense into the fanboys. Clark and Lois can't be frozen in time. Even the comics eventually had to take the leap! And god forbid anything ever be different. *facepalm*

saavikam77: Jasonsaavikam77 on February 4th, 2011 11:51 pm (UTC)
And now I have a Clark and Jason father-son fic bunny. *facepalm* XD

*makes note of it for later*
Lois: LS :: Clark Jason :: Father and Sonkalalanekent on February 4th, 2011 11:59 pm (UTC)
Shiiiiit. Yeah, I have a bad habit of doing that. Sorry. *LOL*
saavikam77: Supes Arms Crossedsaavikam77 on February 5th, 2011 12:09 am (UTC)
Hehe, it's all right. Actually, it's more than welcome. I need more movieverse bunnies if I'm gonna make any kind of a showing at the SMFA this year. :p

And you know, every time I talk to one of you guys about bunnies and your BWT notes, I wind up staying up late and writing tons of Aftermath-verse notes. XD I've got something like 10 pages on the future of the Lane-Kent family, the kids, and the grandkids!
Lois: Lois :: Smilekalalanekent on February 5th, 2011 12:52 am (UTC)
And you know I just act like an idiot when you write anything fandom, period. It gets even worse when you write RV. I LOVE the way you write RV.

XD Yeah, did I ever mention that my artist friends used to call me a muse back in the day? Seems that I would hang out and talk with them for a few hours and after I left, they'd get a ton of work done. I think it's half of the reason we have a ton of bunnehs all the time. :D
saavikam77: Clois Officesaavikam77 on February 5th, 2011 05:34 am (UTC)
Aw, you! *giggles and blushes*

I gotta make a note to write more RV. ^_~

And yep, sounds like you have the ability to inspire great creativity. :D *does the Bunny Hop*

Wow, I just said the same thing to Mark that Lois' role in this first movie will not be as large as we hoped, but she would be there nonetheless.

The Internet is unreliable, and we all know that. Until it comes from WB or Snyder or Nolan even, we shouldn't believe any of it!!

Wait and see... our mantra from now on...!


Lois: Clois :: Cute Cuddlekalalanekent on February 5th, 2011 12:53 am (UTC)
That's it in a nutshell. For now, we wait and see. Nothing is for sure just yet beyond Henry. *hug* Anything could happen.
