If you saw “Man of Steel,” you definitely remember an insane battle of supermen through Metropolis.
So let’s combine that scene with the opening of “Batman v. Superman” where we saw how it all looked to those mere humans standing in the streets:
Or perhaps look from this perspective:
And now you understand why the Bat wanted Supe dead.
Noel Neill died. When you think of classic Superman, she was the actress who was consistent throughout television and movies, because she was the first Lois Lane and had some link to the franchise for at least 7 decades.
In 1948, she appeared in the “Superman” movie serial with Kirk Alyn. They did two serials. Then television came along and “Adventures of Superman” featured Phyllis Coates in its first season. She left the show, and the studio had Neill reprise her movie role for 78 episodes.
But that wasn’t the last we saw of Lois/Noel.
If you paid close attention to the first “Superman” movie with Christopher Reeve in 1978, you’ll notice a scene when a young Clark Kent races a train. A girl looks out of the train window. That’s a young Lois Lane. And the woman with her playing her mother? That’s Noel Neill.
And in 2006’s “Superman Returns,” there’s a wealthy old woman who dies at the beginning and leaves her fortune to Lex Luthor. The actress was Noel Neill.
Of course, she appeared in numerous other television and movie roles. But she’s the Lois Lane of all Lois Lanes.
She died Sunday in Tucson.
I’ve posted a lot of “Everything Wrong with …” reviews. How about an “Everything Great About …”
I still disagree on the ending. If you’re going to do a movie about empowerment, you don’t destroy the main character’s brain.
I loved 99 percent of “Sucker Punch.” That final 1 percent, though destroyed the movie. I thought the ending was unforgivable.
I mean, look at this:
Is Babydoll not the greatest action hero ever.
But then Zack completely screwed up the ending. What a disaster. And because of that, there won’t be a sequel.
I was at Awesome Con in D.C. a couple of weeks ago, and along with the SF, superhero, comic book geek action were life-size models of R2-D2 and the Batmobile.
Not the Dark Knight or Bat v. Supe awesomeness, but a replica of the one used by Adam West and Burt Ward in the 1960s.
So the Spock in me found this chart fascinating (via Sploid):
I’m not sure about this. Isn’t it understood that Black Widow and the Hulk have “a thing going on?”
The Amazon goddess is right.
