As far as Wonder Woman vs Superman goes, Wonder Woman would only have a chance if magic made her MUCH tougher that one would expect.  She has great strength, but as far as I know (and this may vary on the writer), her only defensive power is her bracelets.  Which means that if Superman can land a punch anywhere else (and he will because he's as fast as the Flash because FUCK YOU THAT'S WHY) it would be a very short fight. Or if she has some magic ability to rob Superman of his powers.
Her powers are pretty much the same as Billy Batson's, and Batson had Superman on the ropes in "Kingdom Come".

The simple fact is Superman's powers don't work on things that are magic. Not only is Wonder Woman made of magic, being a clay statue brought to life by the Greek gods (or a demigod, daughter of Zeus in the New 52), but her whole arsenal is magic. The lasso, her shield, her sword, her bracelets (which can also shoot lightning in the New 52), even her armor in "Kingdom Come" was probably magic.

Also, Wonder Woman can fly too.
I know this is DCAU but, in the episode Hades is over throne by Faust possessing that crazy ass armour, every single magical member of the Justice League freaks the hell out, Zatana, Doctor Fate and hell Etrigan is half transformed have human (we never see what happened to Captain Marvel cause he was a one episode wonder). Wonder Woman, perfectly fine.
So I guess it depends on the writer at the time if her being brought to life by the gods from a statue counts as Magic or the Divine, same with the rest of her stuff really.

Superman is not as fast as the Flash, bro.

I'm genuinely curious. Is there actually a difference in pagan religions outside of DnD?

Returning to the original topic, I really don't think it would have mattered a whole hell of a lot who got cast as the leads in the movie version of 50 Shades Of Grey; the project is doomed to tank right out of the gate. Not only will its (likely)NC-17 rating discourage a lot of younger ticket-buyers from coming to see it, but as Cyberwulf accurately pointed out there's much racier stuff than 50 readily available on the Net. When it hits the theaters it will likely prove to be the biggest bomb of a book-based movie project since Tim Burton's remake-- or should I say desecration --of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

I wouldn't be so sure of that. The book is immensely popular (and I have spoken to people who truly believe that it's a good book), and I think people will watch it for that reason alone. Many will watch it just to see what the fuss is about.

Maybe it is a good book. I confess I haven't read it, and have no desire to do so (I have better things to read than creepy bondage porn). But whether it is or not, it's popular. That doesn't mean it's good, but it does mean that a film based on it will probably sell.

...I said that the reason 50 Shades of Grey is so popular is because forty-five year old women DON'T KNOW THAT THERE'S BADLY-WRITTEN BONDAGE PORN ON THE INTERNET.

jesus fucking christ would you ever learn how to read

I don't think you understand how popularity works. Dude, there are people out there having 50 Shades of Grey parties. You can get a giant "LATERS BABY" decal for your back window to let everyone know you're a pathetic moron, and they sell. The book has a tremendous and rabid fan following. Just look at the Twilight movies.

1.) That's not how teens work
2.) None of the sex in the book can't be shown in an R-rated movie. Well, with the possible exception of the tampon scene, but I have a sneaking suspicion that won't make it into the film.

There's tons of people doing snarks and analyses about how bad 50 Shades is. The problem is the people who like it don't listen. Yeah, can't say that in a nicer way other than maybe "they are opposed to critical literary analyses". My cousin, who is exactly in that range Cy described, said she loved the books. I was horrified, and went on to list the reasons why it was terribad: the writing was shoddy, it started off as Twilight fanfiction, the relationship portrayed there was abusive and some of the "sexytimes" showcased rape, it cast the BDSM lifestyle as "evil" [only way I could paraphrase it], and so on. Her response? "I just wanted to see how it ended, if he came around to her way of thinking." Like, literally, words you say go through their ears without sticking to their brains. Most of the other places I've seen defend the book have revolved around "SHE'S CHANGING HIM" and "BUT IT'S TWU LURV". I have yet to see one response to the criticism saying, "I know it's crap, but I like it."

Not awareness about that, awareness that they can get more of the same for free so maybe they can stop obsessing over this one thing and maybe we can stop listening to people popping their damned monocles about it. Just a thought.

Ah! I understand.

I don't know how to tell my cousin there's free BDSM pr0n though. It would be slightly awkward. I'll get one of my brothers to do it. Much better.

Charlie Hunnam just dropped out as the lead. Apparently he got freaked out by the crazy stans stalking him at the Sons of Anarchy set.

Oh, good. Robert Pattison didn't need to do a pre-movie intervention then.

IMDB has a poll up for who should replace Hunnam. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] He was in 3rd last I saw, and frankly, that would be HILARIOUS.

So hard to choose between Hayden Christensen, Hugh Jackman, and James Franco.

The only one I'd nominate for the part would be Hayden Christensen. Maybe he'll ruin it by being a whiny bitch like he was for the prequels.

I realize I've probably launched an entire "Star Wars Prequels Suck" thread. I do not apologize for this.

Christian Grey is a huge whiner, too. I think that the only problem with Christensen's acting in the prequels was that he was absolutely incapable of making Annie's whiny lines come across as anything but whining. (I mean, come on. That dialog.) So in the case of a Fifty Shades movie I'd take that as a feature, not a bug.

To be fair to Hayden Christensen, I don't think he got a whole lot of direction from Lucas. I get the feeling Lucas just expected him to know what Anakin would be like. Plus, as Penguin said, that dialogue.

You guys do have a point. Laurence Olivier reincarnated couldn't handle George Lucas's dialogue.

My problem with 50 Shades was that is was soooooooooooo goddamn boring. Twilight was bad in a way that made snarking on it fun, like laughing at the class clown. Snarking on this is akin to poking fun at the kid that eats paste and sticks crayons up his nose. The book is one-third of Bella and Ed hashing out the countract, one-third lame emails, one-sixth angst and one-sixths of the more snore inducing sex scenes I've read in prints, published or fanfiction. Oooooh, Bells and Ed do it while visiting him family on a couch, my inner goddess can't stand it! Holy fuck!

Zzzzzzzzzz...

And I call 'em Bella and Ed because if the author can't be assed to clean up her fucking work or even proofread, I'm not gonna bother seeing her "characters" as unique creations.

Martian Manhunter has every power Superman has, plus shapeshifting, telepathy and matter transmutation.

Green Lantern can do most of the things Superman can, and also recreate any plot-solving device limited only by his imagination. The ring can also emit Kryptonite-like radiation, and Hal Jordan actually tried to kill Superman this way once.

The Flash could defeat most JLA villains by himself if he bothered to use his powers with a modicum of intelligence. He can run as fast as the plot demands, punch people with an infinite mass fist, turn enemies into functional statues, pass through objects, turn himself intangible, travel through time, and much, much more.

Nobody ever complains these guys are too powerful, while Superman keeps being singled out. It's become a cliché at this point to just default to "Supes is too powerful nyah nyah" regardless of the facts.
