: Not even 'Superman Lives', Tim?

: Seriously, though - that'd be an excellent quote for the jacket of a book,

That does bare a very close resemblence. it's almost a little to close, considering what it looks like and how the ending of the movie was. who knows, it could've been a coincidnece. but if i were you, and i know someone 's probably brought this up, talk to the writer/writers of the script. Tim didn't write it, so the fact that the ending looked like a picture that was in 1 of your comics 3 years before the movie came out, maybe that is where the idea came from. who knows, I heard Burton shot 4 different endings to PotA to keep it secret and then he picked the best one. who knows what actually happened.
