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!

His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.

    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.
