    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

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

    Reynolds is a fantastic casting. However, I think people are looking down on it for the writing and the special effects. Sometimes less is more. And in the case of this movie....the special effects need toned down big time.

    i agree with ya on this, and think Christopher Reeves (RIP) was a great actor, but i didn't feel him as Supes though ... however, his courage after the accident made it appropriate for people to attach the 'Super' to him ...

    Yeah gravitas is easy to define, as for what you put in the thread title "grativas" is hard to find info on.

    No I just think Nathan Fillion would make an awesome Hal Jordan.

    I'm leaving it.
