    Kevin Costner Closes Deal to Join 'Superman'

    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hea...al-join-168940

    Kevin Costner has closed a deal to join the cast of Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures' new Superman movie being directed by Zack Snyder.

    Costner will join a group of actors that so far includes Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel and Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Superman's adopted Earth mother.

    Another Superman reboot with another Superman origin story. I've also read that the villain will be General Zod. While I do like Zod, it's just another rehash.

    I for one am tired of superhero movies- I find them very boring. I guess I'm the only one because the market will be super saturated with them this year, and in 2012.

    On occasion a new superhero movie will come out that I really like, such as the first 'Iron Man", but I have found the majority to be boring.
    Superhero movies seem to fill the place than westerns had decades ago in being a genre that audiences love.

    Martha Kent keeps getting younger. I still think of Diane Lane as Cherry from The Outsiders. I wonder why none of the actors in that movie ever did anything else.

    The Outsiders? That movie had Patrick Swayze, Matt Dillon, Tom Cruise, Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, Ralph Macchio, and C. Thomas Howell in it.
    How do we know he's not Mel Torme?

    Yeah. Whatever happened to those guys? The only one I ever see anymore is Leif Garrett, who played one of the soc's.

    Once I saw Diane Lane in Unfaithful, I really can't think of her in any other role.

    I'm still kinda bitter by how he totally whiffed on "The Postman" -- which was a very good book and an absolutely miserable movie.

    I think there have been a mix of very good (Batman Begins/Dark Knight, Iron Man, X-Men) good (Spiderman II), serviceable (Spiderman I, last Hulk movie, last Superman, Iron Man II) and just plain bad (FF, Spiderman III) superhero movies. The problem seems that too often the producers just want to get something into theaters because they know people will go see it.

    The constant rebooting is what is getting to me. How many Hulk movies do you need? FF looked like the SyFy channel movie of the week.

    I agree with tixe....but that's Hollywood for you.

    I absolutely love Superhero movies but even I recognize the over saturation of them. But what are you gonna do, if you like them you'll go see them and if you don't you'll find another way to spend your entertainment dollars. Just like 3-D movies, don't intend to watch them but from an outsider they seem to be getting out of hand in a hurry.

    Coming Soon: Thor, Green Lantern, Captain America, X-Men: First Class (Professor X, Magneto and the 1st mutant class origins) Superman, (hopefully another Batman), and I believe at some point an Avengers movie (non animated).
