Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:39 AM)

Doesn't seem to have been a market for it, which is too bad, because it perfectly does what it sets out to do.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Just opened it and suddenly I'm 9 years old again.

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

OK, here?s the official word about the future of the DC Universe on screen via Warner Bros. Or the official suggestion. Zack Snyder took the stage at the end of the DC panel, gesturing that moderator Chris Hardwick should move aside. Snyder said, ?I?m gonna take the lectern from you, because some jive?s going to happen up here.?

Snyder continued:

It?s official that we are going to make another Superman movie. And you say, Zack, what is the movie about? But you don?t want me to tell you that. You want to go and see the movie. But I can say that maybe there?s a single element that will be in the film that I could? help you out with. I was thinking about how to do that. I pored through the DC Universe to look for a way to tell this thing. We?re writing the thing now, but I came across a thing I found that?ll help you understand it.

And then Harry Lennix read this, from Frank Miller?s The Dark Knight Returns: ?I want you to remember, Clark, in all the years to come, in all your most private moments, I want you to remember your hand at your throat. I want you to remember the one man who beat you.?

Snyder said ?we?re not adapting this thing, but it is the thing that will help us tell that story.? So while the logo he showed on screen, pictured above, uses the bat logo design from Miller?s work, this won?t quite be a direct adaptation.

No title was announced, and no actors were mentioned. Snyder did say that this is effectively the sequel to Man of Steel, and a press release confirms Henry Cavill as Superman as well as the returns of Laurence Fishburne, Amy Adams, and Diane Lane. No actor for Batman was suggested in any way.

Here?s the press release from WB:

NEXT DC SUPER HERO MOVIE IN PRE-PRODUCTION
Director Zack Snyder Unites Superman and Batman in One Explosive New Film

BURBANK, CA, July 20, 2013 ? On the heels of the worldwide success of ?Man of Steel,? director Zack Snyderis bringing together the two greatest Super Heroes of all time?Batman and Superman?for the first time on the big screen. The announcement was made today by Greg Silverman, President, Creative Development and Worldwide Production, and Sue Kroll, President, Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution,Warner Bros. Pictures.

The current hit, ?Man of Steel,? has taken in more than $630 million at the worldwide box office to date, and climbing. Along with its star, Henry Cavill, the upcomingfilm brings back Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane. The new Batman has yet to be cast.

Snyder is co-writing the story with David S. Goyer, who will then pen the screenplay. Production is expected to begin in 2014, with an anticipated release date inSummer 2015.

Silverman stated, ?Zack Snyder is an incredibly talented filmmaker, but beyond that, he?s a fan first and he utterly gets this genre. We could not think of anyone better suited to the task of bringing these iconic Super Heroes to the screen in his own way.? Kroll added, ?We are thrilled to be back in business with Zack and his team on this next movie. The success of ?Man of Steel? is a wonderful testament to the love and support that both fans and new audiences, worldwide, have for these characters. We are very excited to see what Zack has in store for all of us.?


YES!

And how many times have they dropped the ball on DC properties?

If they get a good Batman/Bruce Wayne (someone who can do justice to both and not one or the other), and the dynamic between him and Superman is great, then I bet this will be an amazing film!

Actually, the way the DCU is, this is probably a good way to introduce new heroes in the DCCU, using Superman as an anchor to draw in other heroes around him. Call this film "World's Finest" and use it as the prequel to the Justice League film! Give us Wonder Woman or Flash before JLA, and we'll be setting up for a great DCCU over the next few years.

Not Miller. Use anyone but Miller. Not the inane Batman/Superman Rivalry that turns Superman into a naive boyscout working for the wrong side because he won't come down to the level of the common man.

I can't suffer a big screen adaptation of "Batman is the best at everything, Superman is a loser".

Yeah, they state two or three times in that artical its not an adaption, its just a few ideas and lines they like. If this is supposed to be the Batman we've seen, even recasted, he's someone with more experence then Clark, despite having no powers. It kinda fits to some degree that in that frame Batman could beat Superman.

I believe the plan DCCU is to have Supes be the first superhero much like Nu52 and since Batman was a known figure in the Nolan films, it's doubtful to it'll be that version of the Bat.

Also, since kryptonite doesn't exist yet, Bats can't use it unless he makes some huge jumps to conclusion like Luthor in the first Reeves movie.

Personally, I'm all for doing World's Finest before JL but I wish they fleshed out Superman more with a direct sequel.

It wouldn't be such a jump. The military now has information that the Kryptonian atmosphere makes Superman weak; information I fully expected to make its way to Luthor in a sequel, but now might make its way to Batman instead.

Still havn't seen Man of Steel but everything I've heard fans say about it suggests it misses A LOT of what I think is best about Superman.

Somehow I feel like throwing him and Batman together in a film by these folks would only make that worse. When they have the right connection/chemistry they're a great pair and the "World's Finest Team" but I feel doubtful that is what were gonna get.


-ZacWilliam, would be happy to be wrong but, yeah, this news doesn't make me particularly happy.

I'm aware of that. This is the part of the announcement that invoked that reaction:

Even using Miller's work as a guideline throws up all sorts of red flags with me. I'm a Batman fan and even I find Miller's insentient Mary Sueing of Batman in relation to Superman tiresome.

Even using it as reference material taints the whole production. Now maybe I'm overreacting and maybe they just used it as a round about means to announce the project as Miller's work is the most famous of the two's "team ups" (Though I use that term loosely). I hope that is the case, because I've zero interest to watch the kind of movie they're implying to making.

This is the only thing I ever felt Miller got right about Superman. And my money's on Snyder and Goyer ignoring it entirely.
