Lex Luthor & Superman: Power Gays

There was some talk on Newsarama about yesterday's dvd release of SUPERMAN: DOOMSDAY and how... well... gay it is.

Now, I was already going to buy the damn thing, but when fanboys start calling this dvd overly homoerotic, you KNOW I raced out to buy my copy!

And while I won't set up this scene for you - - it's way too confusing and half of you wouldn't believe me while the other half could care less - - trust me, watch it.

If nothing else, watch it for Lex's last words to Superman.

Because in a scene filled with gay-ish references to "rumpus rooms" and the "colors of Christmas"...

In a scene where Lex literally cries out, "Why did you leave me? WHY?"...

In a scene where Lex STRADDLES Superman like a bottom who likes it on top...

The last sentence is the gayest thing that Lex Luthor has ever said to Superman.

And I'm pretty sure it will REMAIN the gayest thing Lex Luthor ever says to Superman...

...unless Lex starts singing to Superman something like, "My milkshake brings all the supes to the yard..."




P.S. The casting of crazy-assed Anne Heche as the voice of Lois Lane - - a role played in the first run of Superman movies by crazy-assed Margot Kidder - - is brilliant. Simply brilliant.

Didn't you see how Superman's cape swirled seductively around his legs in the beginning? He was asking for it.
BTW, hate to ruin the joke, but what did Lex say at the end? My speaker's out.

Please tell me the voice cast is still Steven Weber [Supes] and Clancy Brown [Lex]??!

Aw man, just watched it. My only issue with these 'movies' they're making is that they're forgoing the usual VA casts of the shows and going Hollyweird. With all due respect, I don't need a 'brand name ACTOOR' in my Timmverse [that's Bruce Timm to you non-animation watchers.]

Oh and his harping on slashers having a field day is hilarious...this isn't the first Timm's dabbled in this sort of thing. In Starcrossed - when Martian Manhunter 'forces' his way into the mind of Kragger, we see that in Kragger's mind, he's more than just Hro Taleks' right hand man. Where was the hetero-scared then?

Michael - Gay, gay, GAY is SO right, right, RIGHT!!! :)

Nice to know Anne Heche is still working...whose coattails is she clinging to this time?

Stephen Rader said...

Aaron - I'm not sure about the coattails. I just want to know if she's a lesbian again. I've heard of "gay for pay," but "lesbian for pay?"
