Oh no...

Bryan Singer, the film's gay director and responsible for The Usual Suspects and the first two X-Men movies, compounded the anxiety last week by describing Superman Returns as a "chick flick about a superhero seen from a woman's perspective, with qualities you'd want in a husband". The woman is Lois Lane, played by Kate Bosworth.

I've avoided commercials and previews for Superman Returns because I want to go in fresh. But this article about how metrosexual Superman is certainly has me nervous. They better not have messed with my Man of Steel.

And look at all the money wasted! Man. Nicolas Cage got $27 million for nothing? Ugh.

The actor who plays the new Superman was a presenter on the MTV movie awards this year and I hope his acting is better than his teleprompter reading. Scary, scary, scary!

I saw a couple of clips from the new movie as part of a program that was on the other day about the history of Superman on radio and television and in the movies. It was kind of hard for me to judge, though. I've never really gotten into Superman; I always thought that Marvel comics kicked the butt of anything by D.C.
