You know, linking to an Oliva Munn video without warning is quickly becoming the new Rick Roll.

Sort of along the line of the new WB/DC movie film plan, IGN has a feature up on "how to fix the Superman Film Franchise".  Kind of an interesting read, and I think they make some good points.  I'm wondering if a general audience will still be interested in Superman or not at this point, but hopefully there is still a place for Superman movies.  I know a lot of my friends (not comic readers at all), usually say he's "gay", so I don't know what that says for the general movie going public.  I know that I'm currently reading DC's Action Comics, and I think that is a good example of how to handle interesting Superman stories.  If they could translate something along those lines to the big screen, I think it would be pretty cool.  Just give him something to hit already! :)

I think those are all good suggestions.  Its hard to believe that there's been five Superman movies and only one of them features baddies anywhere near his power level.

The IMDB thing is wrong.  Those articles say Scarlett Johansson is attached to a film called Amazon.  The same people who wrote Amazon are doing Conan.  But Johansson doesn't have anything to do with Conan.

Me... I'd like to see Scarlett Johansson in a loincloth.

Are you saying you wouldn't want to see Scarlett Johansson in a loincloth?

Uhhhh....okay. You're interested in seeing a movie about a big bruiser wearing nothing, but have no interest in what might be Scarlett Johansson in a Red Sonja outfit?   ???

Exactly.  I don't care for her at all.  I'm not a big fan of Rose McGowan's either.

You're the first person I've even known not to find Scarlett Johansson to be stunning.
