yes

also what instances are there of non-permanent death?


There was that whole cloning incident a while back IIRC (and I don't follow comic books generally)

Thanks, I'm not familiar with that plot line. Non-permanent death is when he's miraculously not dead in the next movie.

There was with Superboy and all that. The problem is it copies the flesh but not the mind. A bit like triggers brush bit you never put a head on it

Christopher Reeve aside, I think Superman is a thickheaded boy-scout.

I think Batman called him that sometime somewhere.

Happens all the time. Clinical death occurs when both breathing and blood circulation have stopped. Brain death follows within a half minute to a minute.

Resuscitation is possible for several minutes after these things have occurred, and sometimes is successful up to an hour later (with the probability of brain damage depending on a number of factors, including temperature, blood oxygenation, circulatory health, etc.). As a rule of thumb, brain damage starts after about 3 minutes and is typically severe after 10, unless the person was in ice water or something.

This guy was dead (clinically) for 96 minutes, and had no detectable brain damage.

So, yeah, technically there is "non-permanent death". :P

His father was an alien, but his mother got across the border, so technically he's not an alien.

This movie is probably getting an Oscar.

Have you seen Daredevil? It will tank faster than Batman and Robin.

That's a better Batman. It looks like Affleck has the job, however. I think I'll stick to Marvel comic hero movies in future.

They would have been "draws for money" and a Jewish superhero would have been about as popular as a spitroast at a bahmizvah in the 1940s. In any case, the Jews are still waiting for the FIRST coming, so Superflange fits right into their religious narrative if you want.

Ben Affleck As Batman? Thousands Sign Removal Petition

Quote:
He’s tall, dark and — well, he’s definitely tall and has dark hair and once played the real-life role of Jennifer Lopez’s man candy.

But is Ben Affleck man enough to play “Batman?”

Controversy erupted across social media networks when Warner Bros. announced Thursday the 41-year-old Affleck will star in the newest version of the Dark Knight, a movie that promises to bring Batman and Superman together.

And then this happened: Two petitions started, one on change.org and another in the “We the People” section of the White House website.

The change.org petition is aimed at Warner Bros.; the White House petition asked the Obama administration to “denounce the selection of Ben Affleck” and recast the role of Batman.


NERDRAGE!!!!

Naturally the Tea Party movement, the Republican Party, Sarah Palin and BoneKracker will support the position for casting Ben Affleck as Batman.

Because, they know Ben Affleck was born in America and have seen his birth certificate.

Ah, yes. The most anticipated category of Best Collection of Incompetent Decisions to Result in Not Halting Production.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2401617/Breaking-Bads-Bryan-Cranston-cast-Lex-Luthor-Man-Of-Steel-sequel.html

Bryan Cranston is Lex Luthor.

Personally I liked Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor.

ok now we are talking, as I mentioned in the other thread (nipslip) its really downto the badguys & the director. Spacey was meh as lex and while you can't have a brute for lex, you can't have someone who is just overly smart/witty, you need someone who can pull off the powersuit exec (spacey could) but was a criminal mastermind (possibly Cranston).
Spacy reall

I'm not sure if Cranston could pull off the suave businessman though and he seems he would excel at playing a hands-on villan (something lex isn't)

Someone that could pull off this kind of lex would be ideal

Bryan Cranston is unlikely to play suit in this new movie. He's probably going to be a scientist who's on the verge of breakdown. Expect some retelling of Lex Luthor story.

Also, a lot of use the phrase "You're goddamn right."

And then Batman is going to come in and say "I'm the goddamn Batman."

etc.

Tired of comic book movies. It's either that or remakes that is conquering our movie screens.
