Marlon Brando to Star in New Superman Movie, Eat Brains

Latino Review, which surprisingly is a website devoted to mainstream Hollywood movies, is reporting that Marlon Brando will play his last role as Jor-El, Superman's father, in the new Superman movie. How is this possible?


- The new movie is called Superman Returns, and actually fits into the "continuity" established by the first four movies.

- Richard Donner, before being kicked off of Superman 2, filmed a number of scenes with Marlon Brando that were never used in the theatrical release.

- Voodoo priests have been working overtime to resurrect Brando's bloated, worm-eaten corpse.

In any case, it'll be fascinating to see if this new Superman movie turns out to be the trainwreck its over ten years of development have promised it'll be. It'll also be fascinating to see if Brando turns out to be a regular zombie, or one of those new-fangled quick moving ones.

IMDB's page on the movie, if'n you're interested.
