    I think I’ll wait for it on cable.

    Don’t, the sound system is so part of it you would lose 50% of the impact. Go see it on the big screen.

    Just to set the record straight, he fell off a horse.

    I saw this Biographic in a paper while shopping, and noticed that Steve McGarry left out some items (probably due to space limitations):

    In addition to voicing him on the radio, Bud Collyer provided the voice of Clark/Superman in not only the Fleischer cartoons (all 17 of them), but also in Filmation’s "The New Adventures of Superman,’ which debuted on CBS’ Saturday-morning schedule in September of 1966. (Jane Alexander voiced Lois lane in both the Fleischer and Filmation ’toons, too.)

    And Warner Bros. Television Animation brought the Man of Steel back to the small screen in 1998’s “Superman”. I think it was Tim Daly (son of Tyne Daly) who voiced Kal-El, while Dana Delany (“China Beach,” “Body of Proof”) played Lois.

    Also, there was a syndicated “Superboy” series that ran for four seasons, 1989-93. It starred John Haymes Newton (1st season) and Gerard Christopher (seasons 2, 3 and 4) in the title role.

    I saw “Man of Steel” yesterday. While I thought the movie was good overall, there were a couple of portrayals that I felt were inaccurate.

    The first was Laurence Fishburne as Perry White. Now, this is going to make me sound a tad racist, and I don’t mean to be; no offense is intended. But, as talented as Mr. Fishburne is, you have a black actor playing a dude who, since the comic book debuted, has been white. I didn’t mind the change in Superman’s costume (meaning no red undies) because I can chalk that up to artistic license. But this…again, I don’t mean to sound like a racist bigot, but this is just wrong. Also, Mr. Fishburne had facial hair, while Perry White has ALWAYS been clean-shaven in the comics.

    The second was Pete Ross in his youth. He began the role BULLYING young Clark Kent, and he was a fat dude. In the comics, Pete was NOTHING like that at all, and didn’t meet Clark until he was a teenager.

    What the damn Hell happened to accurate portrayals of comic characters?

    There’s one bullet George didn’t stop…

    An observation I saw somewhere comes to mind. After bullets bounce off, he dodges when the empty gun is thrown at him.
    Ah well, just makes him a bit more “human”.

    Wait…. what about the TV show SMALLVILLE, with Tom Welling playing Clark Kent? That show was on the air for 10 seasons! LOVED IT! I was totally bummed when Tom didn’t get the roll of “Man of Steel”!
