    "So they're getting a Brit to play the next Superman. Bye bye "American way" from what Superman fights for."

    I've seen this or similar quotes floating around since Henry Cavil was named as the next actor to play Superman and it makes me just want to throttle people.

    SUPERMAN'S A FUCKING ALIEN, YOU NIMRODS, SO WHO GIVES A SHIT WHO PLAYS HIM? IT'S NOT LIKE HE WAS BORN AN AMERICAN ANYWAY.

    They should get a real alien to play him.

    It's just stupid. People are getting worked up about how a British actor is playing Superman and making it out to be some kind of blow to their idealized America.

    Next thing you know they'll have some foreigner playing Batman. Oh, wait.

    It's our revenge for what the yanks did to Winnie the Pooh. All of us Englishers got together and conspired to make Superman an effete Royalist dandy.

    Would superman count as an illegal alien/immigrant?

    @Rootfireember No more than The Pumaman would be seen as an invasive species.

    Pumaman is an invasive species. Quick. KILL HIM.

    Pumaman is just a decoy to keep people distracted from Vadinho so he can work unobstructed.

    @Rootfireember

    Given the movements against things like birthright citizenship, I'm sure there would be some Fox talking heads screaming about the literal illegal alien.

    I can see it now. "Let me see your birth certificate, Superman!"

    I can just see Lex Luthor teaming up with senators in Arizona.

    Would it be a bad time to point out that Supes was created by a Canadian?
    Anyway could have been worse...could have been Nic Cage! (the horror!)

    Every time I think of Nic Cage my mind is filled with the line from Con-Air, "Put the bunny...back in the box."
