First clear photos of David Corenswet as Superman

Now I understand what Gunn wants

He wants him to look like the Superman on All-Star Superman (which is the comic Gunn used when he did updates on the movie)

Unfortunately this is not particularly flattering to Corenswet; his features are very graceful and now he looks kind of fat-faced

No jawline, no cheekbones

The runner up for the role was Grantchester actor Tom Brittney and he already looks like this

This is going to be an extremely cartoony.

Gunn is having really stupid characters like Mister Terrific fight alongside Superman.

This may be the wrong direction to go as the public is saying that they don’t want these expansive universes anymore.

This feels like a Berlantiverse movie. Superman needed to be reintroduced to feel new and fresh, not like something the audience has had for over a decade.

I have a feeling this is why it’s not getting the huge budget that Man of Steel had - it’s a B picture.

It seems like a decision to reinterpret the character as less “superhuman” - physically weaker and therefore needing the help of all these minor superheroes to do jobs Superman would do by himself.

Not a fan of Grace Randolph but she came to the same conclusion I did

He's not sexy. The general public likes superhero films because the men and women are always very beautiful and have great bodies and look great in their tight costumes. People don't want a Superman which looks like a guy in a rented Halloween costume. You can sell this to the Comic Con crowd but the public needs T&A. And they had a SUBLIMELY beautiful actor in David Corenswet. What does Gunn do? Fatten his face and cover up his body.

It's the cerulean monologue in action!

Basically Brandon's Superman movie made money but not fuck you money like Disney's Pirates movie that was released in the same summer which made WB second guess everything. But it was unfair because they saddled his movie with expectations of clearing 20+ years of development debt from trying to bring Superman back to the big screen from the initial trilogy and it did but did not leave a ton money left over after that. The sequel would have made a ton of profit because the first movie cleared the debt, so they should have just went through with it.

But you give yourself away with this:

“It’s always wrong to make fun of any child. Unless it’s J.Lo’s.”

Now combine that with what you wrote in another thread: “Typically, I’d rather deal with a psychopath than a narcissist because a psychopath has no need for attention and could care less about you. With a narcissist, starving them of attention is enough to heel them.”.

Now back to the subject at hand

Brosnahan was chosen because she looks like Margot Kidder

Corenswet was chosen because he looks like Henry Cavill

Gunn is not an outside the box thinker. Grace Randolph said the same thing - the character reveals were anticlimactic, the actors look like how the characters have always been portrayed.

When Corenswet was announced, the reaction was “why did James Gunn fire Henry Cavill and replace him with Henry Cavill from Wish?”

I think that reaction probably stung Gunn, which is why we have Corenswet looking so dramatically different from how he actually looks - he looks like he’s turning into Tom Brittney. If this was the look Gunn wanted, why didn’t he just cast him?

Because Gunn’s head is so far up his ass he did not realize that he needed to cast someone who didn’t look like Henry Cavill. Of course he couldn’t rescind the role to Corenswet, so he just tried to turn Corenswet into Brittney.

Now Gunn had three sets of finalists for the role. Two sets had actors who looked nothing like previous iterations of the characters. But he chose the ones who looked most like actors who had already played the role. Anyone in casting would have told you not to do this, because you set the actor up to be compared to the person who was already associated with the role.

The correct choices would have been Tom Brittney and Emma Mackey. That would however have only been good for them if the movie was good. It is probably not going to be good so they dodged a bullet. But in another world where someone else was making this movie, they could have been an excellent Clark and Lois.

You instead have a fixation and a simultaneous revulsion and attraction to crossdressing and effeminacy, which you insist on incorporating into discussions that have nothing to do with it.

Now regarding Brandon Routh

Superman Returns simply did not leave a lot of places to take the character. It was an extremely odd film and probably should not have been greenlit. Brandon Routh disappeared completely after the movie premiered which certainly did not impress upon Warner the need to make a sequel. Warner did not bother putting him in anything else which they did for Henry Cavill with The Great Wall (shelved) and then Man from UNCLE which suggests a lack of faith in Routh both as an actor and as a star.

If Brandon Routh’s acting was even 10% better he would have had a much better career but his acting hasn’t improved in two decades. He can be good in extremely specific situations - he was good as Clark Kent in the Berlantiverse Crisis and he was good as the quiet gay nurse who was the boyfriend of the successful architect Michael Urie played in the CBS show whose name escapes me. That was a very strange role because he had to play a physically impressive trophy boyfriend but also someone whose self-esteem was so low that he would tolerate Michael Urie’s irritating character. And oddly, he nailed it.

But the incongruity of someone who was so physically imposing and beautiful but who possesses a recessive, “day player” vibe was never goi g to yield a movie star or television star.

Routh actually looks much better now than he did in Superman; his face has filled out giving him less of a “model/actor” vibe. But the acting never improved. Extremely hard to cast.

Now I do not know why Gunn copied this scene from Man of Steel but this is actually quite cruel

This was one of the first images released from Man of Steel and he recreates the scene but he makes it look much worse because of the addition of UltraMan

I do not know why UltraMan is depicted like this - this is like Deathstroke

UltraMan is simply Kal El from an alternate timeline in which Kal El is from an evil family and is sent to Earth to take over. He is always depicted as looking exactly like Superman but with a U instead of an S. Now he’s just muscle for hire?

Actor Frank Grillo looks like he’s playing the same role he had in Captain America Winter Soldier.

Very unusual decisions. There seems to be an attempt to retcon existing pieces of superhero films.

You don’t know shit, R113. You’re looking at pap photos with zero context and acting like you’re a well-informed individual instead of the sad ignoramous you are.

Frank Grillo is Rick Flagg, Sr. Which has been well reported. But that doesn’t jive with your pathetic agenda.

You’re a tragic hater with extremely poor comic-book knowledge. And you think you’re Ellery fucking Queen.

Maybe the saggy suit will be a running gag. Maybe Superman has a stomach worm from Mars and it's eating all his food and he's wasting away. Maybe he has space cancer. Maybe he borrowed the suit from a fat Superman from an Alternate universe.

[quote] Superman is boring. I think his villains are boring too.

Actually, he has some fine villains, such as Brainiac (who can be mysterious and scary, as they showed in the KRYPTON series) and Doomsday.

The problem is that they keep going back to the same well again and again with Luthor, whom no one likes anymore because he's always shown in the movies to be smirky and snarky. He's the smartypants asshole no one wants to be around.

R115 let me explain something to you that you do not seem to understand

"You’re looking at pap photos with zero context and acting like you’re a well-informed individual instead of the sad ignoramous you are."

A) This is how your mother talked to you;

B) Ignoramus does not have an o in its last syllable; and

C) this is what people who discuss movies in production on internet forums do. They look at photos of the production and try to understand the creative direction the movie is taking. That is how the Internet works.

"Frank Grillo is Rick Flagg, Sr. Which has been well reported. But that doesn’t jive with your pathetic agenda."

And your agenda is not to read or understand sentences (consistent with ADHD).

I said, "Actor Frank Grillo looks like he’s playing the same role he had in Captain America Winter Soldier."

This is a fairly straightforward observation. Frank Grillo played Crossbones in Marvel and was depicted as a man dressed entirely in black with black military accessories and swept up hair whose responsibility was to arrest Marvel's analog to Superman, Captain America. Now Frank Grillo is playing a man dressed entirely in black with black military accessories with swept up hair whose responsibility appears to be arresting DC's analog to Captain America, Superman. I didn't say he is playing the same role. I said it looks like he is.

Your agenda is also to Simp for Gunn. All your little Simp powers aren't going to change the fact that other people on social media are making the same comparisons I am because they are easy comparisons to make. Gunn has taken existing superhero iconography, recycled it and made it look cheaper. He chose a Superman that looks like Henry Cavill but then deemphasized his beauty. He chose a costume that looks like the Reeve costume but made it lumpy and unsexy. He recreated a tableau from Man of Steel which was striking because of the dark desaturated colors, and made it sillier looking with bright day-glo colors plus the addition of a silly looking villain with a black hood and googles. Now if you actually cared about Superman these creative decisions would disappoint you. But you do not. You only care about simping for James Gunn.

In defense of the "saggy suit" - look very closely. He appears to be a lot thicker through the middle than either Hoechlin or Cavill were during filming.

There is a bad side effect of bodybuilding drugs - they cause growth of internal organs, including the liver, so-called "roid gut." Is it possible there were some unexpected and changes from his massive and sudden packing on of muscle?

A saggy suit would look a lot better than a skin tight one if his abdomen isn't as tight as it needs to be for a suit like that. Even if you tighten your abs, it still looks a lot bulkier.

Whereas Cavill filmed looking fairly lean and tight.

As a side note: I will say that the sexiest thing ever was when Lois is hugging a shirtless Superman and tells him he smells nice.

I think there are more signs pointing to Gunn simply not wanting a physically beautiful Superman. This was a simple fan mock up probably made in 20 minutes when the casting was announced, and this is what Gunn actually delivered. This is on purpose.

Superman filmmakers not wanting a beautiful Superman is not new - Superman Lives! with Nicolas Cage, obviously. But that costume at least emphasized his body.

Superman was never particularly associated with beauty - George Reeves was certainly not beautiful - until the Christopher Reeve film. It is now what the public expects.

How are you not filled with embarrassment “writing” such teenage drivel? You sound like a lovelorn 15-year-old girl scribbling on her Trapper Keeper.

He’s fucking Superman. He’s not supposed to be “sexy.” He's not supposed to be “beautiful.” He’s supposed to be noble, powerful and heroic.

Meanwhile, you’re laughably upset his crotch isn’t bulging to get your depraved - and very lonely - self aroused.

You’ve proved once again you understand nothing about the character and are just looking to get your rocks off, expecting creatives to provide you with fanfic porn.

What a sick fuck.

A better understanding of what Gunn is doing can probably be gleaned from his Guardians casting

Chris Pratt is obviously very handsome but not beautiful like Chris Evans or Chris Hemsworth. He has pleasant middle American face.

The runner up for the role was Glenn Howerton. Others who tested were Joel Edgerton, Jack Huston, Eddie Redmayne, Zachary Levi, Adam Brody, Sullivan Stapleton, and Lee Pace. Of those, Lee Pace would probably be considered the most physically beautiful. James Gunn cast him as Ronan the Accuser and hid his entire face in heavy makeup and his body underneath a bulky costume.

He is uncomfortable with beautiful men.

Simpi, then by your own definition Gunn has failed. His Superman doesn't look noble, powerful and heroic. He looks like a Times Square street performer.

Simpi, this is how Gunn sees Superman. Disheveled and putting on his boots in his lumpy suit while a giant eyeball destroys Metropolis.

You never stop being a joke, do you?

You’ve now entered the brain of a stranger whom you’ll never reach his level of success and have psychologically deconstructed him based on your own fetishes.

You’re really, sick. But you know that. The complete lack of friends and loved ones in your life was the first clue, right?

BTW, beautiful men are uncomfortable with you. Because you’re fat, desperate and you’re the I Hate Emily Blunt Troll.

Scrolling through and this thread has taken some batshit crazy twists and turns. Just wanted to share my astonishment at how the suit looks almost like a bad fitting wetsuit. It looks almost like rubber and the fit doesn’t seem right. At least I suppose Supe has got his red underpants back?

People are saying the hooded man arresting Superman is wearing a hood because Gunn has borrowed a famous plot twist from The Boys comic, where a villain "Black Noir" is revealed to be a clone of Homelander. Having a "U" means Gunn would be retconning The Boys' storyline to an existing Superman villain, Ultra-Man. But Ultra-Man already looked like Kal-El because he was Kal-El from a parallel universe and never needed to wear a hood, and his suit was almost identical to Superman's.

R137 = oh brother. Ultra-Man as a villain would means Supes would be fighting himself/lookalike in some computer generated slop? What a fucking trope. FYI = Ultra-Man IS interesting in the comics. He killed his parents and left home at 8 years old (according to the New 52 ). And following the Crime Syndicate Miniseries he killed JFK. We really don't need an Ultra-Man movie appearance.
