This effectively removes an actor of Cavill's age from the storyline's equation given that Superman, aka Kal-El, would be an infant, according to DC lore.
This is hilarious spin. "Obviously DC couldn't keep Cavill on since he's not a newborn baby!"

I thought that Kara was technically older than Kal-El, but when she arrives on Earth, she's actually younger looking than him because of the extra time spent in space ?

Also I just found this piece of hilarious boot-licking from Forbes about the situation, and I highly recommend you read it.

Your link goes to the same Hollywood Reporter article already linked above, not a Forbes article.

We have been getting by just fine for decades without a good Superman film

That’s a real shame... he’s been taking on such interesting projects, and I’m sure his participation in a lot of those independent productions has been key to getting them financed. I suppose if this makes him an even bigger international star and he’s be able to leverage that to do even more of that kind of work, this could be worth the opportunity cost of losing him from the independent world for a year-plus.

He'll be in Nolan's film next summer, so it seems like he's ready to swing back into the bigger tentpole projects.

It's like the 60s TV show Batmobile had a child with Mad Max's Interceptor. Works for me.

Dear WB:

Would it be possible for you to restore films that actually deserve a reappraisal, like Being Human (1993) and Mike's Murder (1984)? Much obliged.



Also, if HBO Max is the venue for projects like this, what about the original version of Cloud Atlas that was rumored to hit Netflix?

I am legitimately shocked this is actually going to see the light of day. Wow!

The movie industry has changed in ways we can't even imagine.

This seems absolutely unprecedented to me.

This has been memed into oblivion at this point, so much so that I have no idea why there has been such overwhelming demand for it. What are people expecting from this, exactly?

I mean the Extended 'R' rated cut of Batman v Superman was still a terrible film - adding more footage is not going to improve matters. But then again, the lengths to which fans have gone to campaign for this new cut of Justice League are so bizarre, clearly Warner Bros think they can get some money back from this project...
