    As intriguing a character as Lodz was, we never really knew who he was or where he came from. But Carnivale was more centered on the time period of the Dust Bowl period in Middle America. Then include the themes of good versus evil, magic, the personal journey to an uncertain future. The show would have been extended with an origin episode for each of the main characters. I remember one scene in an episode where a photograph of Samson in his younger days as a performer in a freak show. It seemed to me that the life of a traveling carnival was all that he ever knew and it is there he knew where he stood.

    Yes, sold by his parents, I suppose.

    Or perhaps Samson was orphaned.

    They won't have a problem with a black guy and a white BBW. That will amuse them and play into their stereotype.

    You're right, they won't be jealous about the IR sex but they'll still be triggered into racist responses.

    Angelina's convincing British accent and skintight ensembles were the only saving graces in the original.[​IMG]

    Matthew Vaughn’s Superman DCEU Movie Would Be ‘Heroic’ & ‘Feel-Good’


    Matthew Vaughn’s Superman film would be “heroic” and “feel-good”, the director has revealed. The Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class and Kingsman: The Secret Service helmsman has now confirmed that he has held discussions about directing a DC Extended Universe Superman movie. The project is colloquially being referred to as Man of Steel 2 and would feature Henry Cavill back playing Kal-El/Clark Kent/Superman for the fourth time onscreen.

    Cavill’s take on The Last Son of Krypton was introduced in Zack Snyder’s 2013 film Man of Steel, which launched Warner Bros’ DCEDU and established a broodier tone for the franchise. Cavill returned in Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016, battling Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight before becoming friends with him. He then fought Doomsday alongside Bats and Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, and sacrificed his life in order to save the day. It’s no secret at this stage that Cavill will reprise his Kryptonian role in Justice League this fall, picking up from the teaser at the end of Batman V Superman (e.g. the final shot alluding to Superman’s eventual resurrection).

    As of yet, these talks between WB and Vaughn haven’t evolved into a contract being signed. Speaking to Collider on the Kingsman: The Golden Circle press tour, Vaughn teased what his take on the Superman character would look like, should a deal eventually be closed:

    “Weirdly if I did do Superman—and I made the mistake of telling someone yesterday I have spoken about it and then wallop (laughs)—I think my main take would be, it’s really boring but make a Superman film. I just don’t feel a proper Superman—I think Donner did it to perfection for that time. Just doing the modern—I wanna do a modern version of the Donner [version]. Go back to the source material… For me Superman is color, feel-good, heroic. He’s a beacon of light in darkness. And that’s what I think Superman should be.”

    This will be music to the ears of Superman fans, especially those that think Snyder and the DCEU have pushed the character into too dark a territory. After Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns film failed to set the box office alight with its Donner-aping optimistic reverence in 2006, Snyder’s Man of Steel felt like the polar opposite approach: a grayed-out, grungy Superman lacking the light-heartedness and vibrancy of those classic Richard Donner/Christopher Reeve pictures. Plenty of moviegoers would prefer a return to a “feel-good” tone post-Man of Steel, it seems.

    However, you could argue that the DCEU has started down an interesting path here, creating a Superman franchise for Trump’s America, where Kal-El – an alien on Earth – is greeted by skepticism and fear from huge chunks of the public. WB might have to throw a lot of that out to let Vaughn make his movie, which could feel like a backward step.

    Man of Steel 2 currently has no creative team formally attached, and no release date has been confirmed yet.

    Angelina used that same British accent in the film Sky Captain And The World Of Tomorrow. It wouldn't have surprised me if she would use her chops to be cast as a Starfleet commanding officer in a Star Trek film, if she didn't quit acting.

    The pilot episode will premiere on CBS, following the football game tonight. Subsequent episodes will stream exclusively on the CBS All Access app.
