The world can always use more good reporters

This is what they tell Clark Kent at least and I can only say: Here's hoping. Less than hopeful is the latest trailer for the Superman Returns film franchise reboot. Kevin Spacey was born to play Lex Luthor, the Fortress of Solitude certainly feels right and the Christopher Reeve Superman leitmotif orchestral flourish lends the whole project a nostalgic glow. These are substantial building blocks for the Superman legend. And yet I am left wondering why we need yet another retelling of this story given the excellence of small-screen Smallville. Worse yet, the trailer is boring. Brian Singer, you've got some 'splaining to do! Especially if you are even thinking of touching Logan's Run.

Marvel Multiverse Update: Dell sponsors a "sneak peek" at X-Men: The Last Stand. Which is very nice of them. I have not watched it myself due to not needing to re-sit through seven minutes of the film if and when I go to see it.
