Ehhh, I use spoiler tags just in case. My favorite part of the interview, regarding the Marlon Brando scenes:
Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
You re-created Marlon Brando, for instance, bringing him back for the Fortress of Solitude scenes. In that scene where he’s talking, he’s completely … … created. We just had grainy photographic references. So he had to be created from those. It’s like bringing back the dead, in a way. He’s actually saying words that he never said on camera. He said them into a microphone back when they made the first movie. And I’m moving around him in multiple dimensions. So he had to be animated.
Just scary the things they can do now....

Is this the cover story from Wired! Magazine? I just got my copy in the mail but I wasn't planning on reading that article until after I see Superman next month. I'm trying to preserve as clean a viewing condition as humanly possible and avoiding spoilers and reviews etc. the way Superman avoids Kryptonite.
On the subject of Superman Returns, I find it amusing that when a thread about this movie opens up, there are no replies. Is ANYONE excited to see it?
The $250million price tag is a myth, in that it takes into account all the money previously wasted on SUPERMAN projects that never got off the ground, plus other rumours & half-truths. Singer's version is an expensive movie, but it's not the most expensive.
To those who say people wouldn't look; they wouldn't be interested; they're too complacent, indifferent and insulated, I can only reply: There is, in one reporter's opinion, considerable evidence against that contention. But even if they are right, what have they got to lose? Because if they are right, and this instrument is good for nothing but to entertain, amuse and insulate, then the tube is flickering now and we will soon see that the whole struggle is lost. This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires, and lights, in a box.-Edward R. Murrow
I was very happy with the episode. Now, granted, I say that as a huge Aaron Sorkin mark--that flag that's not the US one on my posts right now? That's because I'm 9000 miles from home visiting The Lovely Future Mrs.
