Check out this hack piece of copy that accompanied the picture on the 'Entertainment Weekly' web site. Can there just be ONE news story involving Superman that doesn't start with that bird/plane line? JUST FREAKIN' ONCE!!
"Look! Up on the Web! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Henry Cavill as Superman! Warner Bros. this morning released the first official image from Man of Steel, director Zack Snyder’s now-shooting reboot of the Superman franchise starring Cavill as the iconic DC Comics superhero."
That being said, I really like this photo. The hair and suit and Cavill's body type all create a nice retro Superman image. And with Zack Snyder you know there digital effects will be out of the world...like another world...a world that exploded in space minutes after a rocketship carrying the infant baby Kal-el blasted off from it's surface. OMG...now they got me doing it.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
