Report: Is Tyler Bates the new composer for Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel”???

Rumors are hitting the web this week that film composer, Tyler Bates, could be the new composer for Zack Snyder’s, “Man of Steel”. The reason this rumor started because he was listed in IMDB, in the credits as composer. So far, no official press release about it from Warner Bros.

It could be true because Tyler already worked with Zack for “300”, “Watchmen” and “Suckerpunch”.

This is starting to worry Superman fans, ’cause the John Williams main theme could be ignored. I don’t think so. In every Superman movie, there is the John Williams score just different versions of it. J.W.’s didn’t score every Superman flick, only the first one.

If Tyler is indeed the composer for, “Man of Steel”, I think it’s still a possibility they will still use the J.W.’s score, but a different take on it. They shouldn’t really ignore the theme completely and they probably won’t. Hope they won’t ignore it anyway.

Cool Photo: First look at Henry Cavill in the Superman costume leaked to the web!

Well finally, we get Henry Cavill wearing the Superman costume on set of Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here you go folks, first look at Henry Cavill as Superman, see him, here.

Awesome, just awesome. I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

Definitely different from Christopher Reeve and Brandon Routh. The hair is a little longer but that’s okay, still looks great. I’m now officially sold to this movie and psyched to see it! Why do we have to wait ’til 2013 to see it!

I hope they do a good job with the film and won’t disappoint. Enjoy all!

In defense of Laurence Fishburne as Perry White…

Yesterday, when Laurence Fishburne was announced that he is officially on board to play Perry White for Zack Snyder’s Superman “Man of Steel” film, this news got mixed reactions of course. Some love it. Some hate it. For those who hate it, just don’t like the idea of a black Perry White. I’m reading other blogs and message boards with fans giving feedback on this news, and I’m seeing so much hateful and racist postings about this news.

Seriously people?  This isn’t the first time the Superman movies experimented with a black character. Gus Gorman (Richard Pryor) from “Superman III” anyone?

I think turning Perry White into a black man is a great idea. It’ll bring in a whole new audience and will bring in more black people to see the movie.

Jackie Cooper as Perry White was pretty good, but he wasn’t mean and aggressive enough. In the comics, Perry is supposed to be a mean and tough guy to get along with. I think Laurence will fit the mean and tough guy role just perfectly.

The new “Spiderman” comics just turned Spiderman into a black and bi-sexual guy after Peter Parker was killed. I’m sure other comic book superheroes experimented with black characters too. So there’s nothing wrong with turning Perry White black. Keep in mind that Perry White wasn’t a very big character. He was just a supporting character. You can make changes with other characters, all you want, but you can’t change Superman himself into a black person.

Perry White have been the same character for over 30 years, so it don’t hurt to change him around a bit. I think Laurence would give the Perry White role a powerful performance that might be good enough for an Oscar nod, possibly.

I mean, this isn’t the first time Zack Snyder “Man of Steel” has been making changes with the other characters in the Superman franchise. Like Ma and Pa Kent for example. Ma and Pa Kent were meant to be an elderly couple, but Snyder hired Diane Lane and Kevin Costner to play them who are both a little younger. Lois Lane is not a redhead, yet they got Amy Adams to play her. Henry Cavill is a British actor and yet Christopher Reeve/Brandon Routh were both American actors to play Superman. See? They’re making changes with all the characters, not just Perry White.

When they cast Jimmy Olsen which I assume which will be next, don’t be surprised if Jimmy could be black, Asian, Mexican, etc. Jimmy could even be much older too. He could even be a little teenager.

I bet they just want this Superman movie to be more realistic so it can feel real and believable. I think Laurence Fishburne is fine casting. I really love the casting to this movie so far. I haven’t been disappointed with any of them yet. Hopefully they cast someone good for Jimmy Olsen.

Cool Photo: First look at Henry Cavill as Superman? Eh, sort of…

First pics of Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel? Not really. It’s just Henry himself walking down the street with the Superman hairdo, he’s got the “S” curl and everything. To be honest, I’m not too thrilled yet, but I’ll make my opinion whenever we see Henry in the actual Superman suit, which we hope to see pics of that soon.

See the pics, here.

BREAKING NEWS: And the new Perry White for Zack Snyder’s “Superman: Man of Steel” is???

Hmmmm, what’s funny is that I just got done watching “Superman IV: The Quest for Peace” on Blu Ray and a new Superman casting has been announced for Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel” film. Perry White has finally been casted! Laurence Fishburne will be the Daily Planet boss.

So they’re going for a black Perry White this time? Interesting! I like the casting. I’m sure Laurence will kill it!
