      I think other people cried too, but for different reasons.

        Really? I got the opposite impression! I found him to be absolutely perfect as Superman It was his Clark Kent that made me wince.

        course that's today. Back when i first saw it i just sat thru the Clark Kent parts to get to see Superman (hey i was 7 when the movie first came out!)

        Now as to Hal, I'm sure Reynolds will do fine with what's there. He has done serious roles. that said GL is not a character I attribute a great deal of Gravitas to.
        Martian Manhunter? sure
        Batman? absolutely!
        The Spectre? OH HELL YEAH!!!
        but GL has always been one of the lighter-hearted characters. he's had serious runs yeah hard traveling heroes, his whole tragic loss of his father,and yes his long stint as Parallax/Spectre but even these are blips on the radar of a largely cheerful character.
        I do0n't expect this to be a farce (*COUGH*GreenHornet!*COUGH*)!mind you. but at the same time, this should not be "The English Patient" either
