I know I've got about fourteen comments to respond to, in my recent series about Catholicism, but let's take a break from that this week, okay?
They've got a new Superman movie coming out. I must admit that I know little-to-nothing about the modern Superman comics. I'm more familiar with the 1940's Superman.
From what I can tell, the modern Superman movies all featured Lex Luthor as the main villain. Maybe that's why those movies haven't done so well. Personally speaking, I don't think Lex Luthor is a very interesting villain; I haven't seen any storylines with him that were engaging. Other people have a problem seeing Lex as a villain, because he was such a sympathetic character on Smallville.
Well, Lex isn't going to be in the new Superman movie. Instead, the main villain is going to be General Zod. Zod wasn't in the 1940's Superman, so I know nothing about this character.
It's probably a good movie to have a new villain in this movie. The Spider-Man and Batman movie series have a new bad guy every movie, right? Maybe they could continue this trend, and the next movie will be Superman VS Mister Mxyzptlk. I would absolutely see that movie.
