I've seen pics of the action figures. Why in Gods name did they keep the darn mullet? That should have been the very first thing from the source to be tossed out.

Adam Baldwin as Superman
Anne Heche as Lois
James Marsters as Luthor

I'm keeping my fingers crossed.  I'm wondering if Baldwin and Heche will be doing the New Frontiers Superman/Lois as well.

Here's what I don't get:

From what I've heard, the movie will NOT feature the four "alternate Supermen" (Cyborg, Eradicator, Superboy and Steel).  So what does that leave?  Superman and Doomsday beating the snot out of each other and both dying.

We've seen the figure in the black suit and mullet, so Superman must come back to life in third reel.  But to fight whom?  Mongul as in the original?  I haven't heard of his casting.  Luthor?  Yawn.

If this is "The Death of Superman" capped by the return of (mulleted) Superman, without "Reign of the Supermen" in the middle, then who the heck cares?  "Reign" was the only interesting part of that storyline and for my money the only vaguely interesting Superman storyline in the whole of the 90s.

I'll be saving my money this fall for the Batman 13-inch figure.

My hunch is that it'd be Doomsday again.  He comes back to life after they've beaten each other to "death", and the world needs Superman...

Y'know, Doomsday would've been more compelling if he -were- Mongul.

Yeah, I agree, the story is likely to be crap, but to me, Christ-like Superman is overdone.  "Superman has died.  Superman is risen.  Superman will come again."  Enough already.

I agree. I hate Christ imagery associated with Superman...it doesn't fit.

Oh well, at least we still have the wonderful "Steel" movie starring Shaqille O'Neil.

No one seems to mention Steel among Superman's cinematic legacy in documentaries... funny, that.
