Well, we all know what Henry Cavill looks like as Superman now, and he didn't need to change the color of Kal-El's skin to start kicking up some controversy on Twitter. Jamal Igle, David Gallaher and Mark Millar weighed in with reactions to the new Man of Steel, and sides have been taken.
Laurence Fishburne playing Perry White is still a hot topic, too, though, as is "Captain America: The First Avenger." Check out J.T. Krul's micro-review and see who's pumped for "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" down below.
I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter Report for August 4, 2011.
"Man of Steel" pt. 1: @THEHITCHFACTORY Signal spotty so out of touch and late to various parties. The Man of Steel casting continues to impress. Fishbourne as Perry is brilliant!
-Bryan Hitch, Artist ("The Ultimates," "Captain America: Reborn")
"Man of Steel" pt. 2: @JAMALIGLE I have to admit the first image of Henry Cavill as Superman doesn't excite me at all.
-Jamal Igle, Artist ("Supergirl," "Firestorm")
"Man of Steel" pt. 3: @DavidGallaher Not sure how I feel about this new Superman costume. The film isn't due out for nearly two years -- so I suppose it could grow on me?
-David Gallaher, Writer ("High Moon," "Darkstar and the Winter Guard")
"Man of Steel" pt. 4: @loveandcapes Oh, and I think the first picture of Superman looks pretty good. I like the muted colors, and it's nice to see him wrecking things.
-Thomas Zahler, Writer/Artist ("Love and Capes")
"Man of Steel" pt. 5: @mrmarkmillar Holy sh--! I've just noticed... Henry Cavill's Superman looks incredibly like Mark Owen from Take That!
-Mark Millar, Writer ("Kick-Ass," "Wanted")
@jtkrul So the verdict on Captain America - not bad. Great performances. some fun stuff, but a little thin overall.
-J.T. Krul, Writer ("Blackest Night: Titans," "Fathom")
"Rise of the Planet of the Apes" pt. 1: @edgarwright In answer to your queries, I have not seen ROTPOTA yet. I just felt like saying AAAAAAPES.
-Edgar Wright, Director ("Scott Pilgrim vs. The World," "Shaun of the Dead")
"Rise of the Planet of the Apes" pt. 2: @simonpegg @edgarwright I'm quite looking forward to seeing The Story of the Rise of the Planet of the Apes of the Apes of the.
-Simon Pegg, Actor ("Star Trek," "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn")
