    Oh we're damn unlikely to get Smash in any kind of adaptation. Not because it's hard or doesn't fit in anywhere, but because WB seems to be allergic to good Superman stories.

    Smash could easily...

    I mean, it's comics so nothing really has to make sense. As long as the story itself is fun, other considerations are very much secondary.

    But ultimately, bad stories do not justify other bad...

    They've already begun the about-face with Whedon's contributions to JL.

    And since WB doesn't intend on doing another solo, might as well give Cavill the chance to play Superman right, if only in...

    Kinda-sorta. But the point is that Haly's has the flexibility to be whatever the writer wants it to be. Higgins did what he did with it, but a Nightwing cartoon made for kids could make Haly's a...

    I think "officially" Dick's on the reserve list. Or the "break in case of emergency" kit, anyway.

    But practically every adult hero is on one of those lists and Dick has only been called in two,...

    Of course not, but the people around him do and they rarely let an insult pass.

    I maintain that Smash is too special to turn into an attack on current events. Plenty of other stories to adapt for...

    I'm just happy he's maybe getting a chance to do it right. I really want to see what Cavill is capable of with the right people behind the camera and script. If that's just in a team up movie, okay....

    F*cking right I am!

    Give me Smash, done Pixar style and made for families. Don't screw with the story, just be completely loyal to the source material. Theatrical release, with a quick jump into...

    That's how it *should* be written. And once in a while that's how it is actually written. But most of the time, it's like that example someone mentioned upthread where just having magic in the air...

    Hmm. Well my first thought is "I'll believe it when I see it."

    My second thought is that WB should crawl on their hands and knees and beg Cavill to reprise the role, and promise him anything he...

    I've been looking at it from the perspective that Superman needs a big clean win.

    That, and Smash being set in the 40's is just awesome for a lot of reasons. You know me; I love me my Golden Age...

    No, he's definitely written sometimes as being more vulnerable to magic than the average guy. It doesn't just seem that way, it *is* that way.....depending on the writer at least, the good ones know...

    You got a point.

    I don't know if Superman is in the best position to be the one dropping that anvil right now, but you got a point.

    In the Golden Age, the character thought of himself as "Clark Kent" because he didn't know his origin and had no other name to use until...

    The only way Diamond can be viewed as *not* being a monopoly is because comics are legally lumped in with magazines, and since magazines are distributed by multiple companies, Diamond avoided the...

    Smash could very much work as a modern day story, and be just as poignant and on-the-nose.

    But I don't actually think that's a good idea. At least not right now.
