    A few weeks after Snyder was revealed as Director, IIRC.

    It's why, although I don't have a whole lot of faith in this new movie, I'm not envious of them. Because no matter what direction you go (all new narrative or a Singer-like continuation of the '78 film), you will always be compared to the Donner film... from acting, to score, ETC.

I think it's possible. Extremely difficult but possible. I mean I liked the '89 Batman movie when it came out and when I went to Batman Begins once it started I wasn't even thinking about the '89 Batman. Now granted my love of the '89 Batman movie pales in comparison to the '78 Superman movie so it'll be more difficult to keep from comparing the two.

    So the guys are screwed no matter which way they go; because it'll be hard to top what is arguably one of all time great film scores (the only score that beats it, IMO, is the Lawrence of Arabia score...) and if they just riff on it, they'll get crap for it too.

My question will be - Is John Williams going to do the new score too? I love all his movie scores but to me they all have a similar sound to them.

    Personally, I'm more worried/pissed about the fact that instead of trying to really make a different and distinct looking Krypton (which is why I've always loved the Donner version... because a crystalline world IS a unique and out there visual), they've been quoted that the Krypton of this movie is going to be like Coruscant from Star Wars.

I really don't care what Krypton looks like and would prefer they not spend more then a few minutes there. Parents smile at baby in ship. Ship launches. Ka-boom. Space. Kent farm. (12.345.67.89)
