Updated again: Superman/Caviezel madness!

LATEST UPDATE: 4:02 p.m.

If you haven’t heard about this, see my earlier blog.

Things are getting crazy. Here’s my paraphrase of the craziness so far.

Barbara Nicolosi: I’m hearing from a guy ‘in the know.’ Caviezel is the front-runner to play Superman.

 

Mark Millar: Caviezel’s Superman. I heard it from a trusted source.

Harry Knowles: No he isn’t. Our sources are better.

Newspapers everywhere: Caviezel is Superman! Because Mark Millar said so!

And now THIS, TODAY:

Millar: I’m so positive, I’ll donate 1000 dollars to charity if Caviezel’s not Superman when the cameras start rolling.

And it gets even BETTER!!

Harry Knowles: I’ll take that bet! I’ll put 1000 dollars on the line for charity too!

This is more exciting than the film will probably be!

    Superman = Jesus.

    It’s a longstanding interpretation that I think bears some weight. I haven’t seen Caviezel as awe-inspiring, as Supes should be, though. (although his Jesus did come closest to awe-inspiring).

    Just doing my part to increase the confusion. (D’oh!) The entry has been edited.

    Wait, is he Jesus or Superman?

    :)

    I hope not!! I’m looking forward to a powerful action movie centered around a noble, self-sacrificing hero who is willing to go to any lengths to do the right thing.

    But this IS a fun go-round.
