It’s Episode 91 of Superman Forever Radio.
This time out Bob Fisher takes a look at 3 very different Super girls from the Silver Age of comics.
This is it!!!. You voted, I listened, and now we have a full episode devoted to YOUR Metropolis Idol- Dean Cain.
Before we jump into any of that, though- We have a new General Zod, and I have some thoughts on him. Also, what is Henry Cavill doing to prepare for donning the blue tights, and what does he think of the script, and Amy Adams?
Zack Snyder talks about working with Christopher Nolan.
Then, it’s time. We talk about Dean Cain. From the heartbreak of a premature end to his sports career, to donning the cape.
We look back at Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, and where Dean went after that.
Also, a look back at a classic episode of Lois and Clark- “Seasons Greedings” written by Dean Cain.
Then we wrap the week up by talking about Michael Shannon, and I give my thoughts on him, and the casting choice.
Remember to come back Thursday when we review the Superman books on shelves for May, 2007.
We talk extensively about Kryptonite– it’s origins, the many varieties, and a scientific explanation of why it effects the Man of Steel. Did you know that Jerry Siegel originally wanted Kryptonite to appear years earlier? You can read much of that original story at k-metal.nu.
Also, Amy Adams as Lois Lane; why she makes an excellent choice and what former Lois Lanes have spoken their approval. A Justice League movie for 2013? And an update on the other Superman movie– Superman Requiem.
Then, the Kryptonite theme continues as the animated Superman first encounters his weakness in the fifth episode of Superman:The Animated Series. See the Man of Steel battle a giant T-rex, and pollute the harbor with aircraft and lead poisoning. Also- why you don’t want to be in the Metropolis Treasury building when a fire breaks out.
Here it is, the last late episode of Superman Forever Radio- why?? Listen and find out as I drop an announcement about some big changes in store for the show.
It’s also the final round of Metropolis Idol. Only two remain- Will it be George Reeves from the 1950’s “Adventures of Superman Television show, or Dean Cain, who inherited the role on “Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman“?
