THIS WEEK ON THE SHOW 10/07/17 Fonseca talks with Jacob at the “Winchester Mystery House”

THIS WEEK ON THE SHOW 10/07/17 Fonseca talks with Jacob at the “Winchester Mystery House”

Fonseca and Jacob

FONSECA is inside the The Winchester Mystery House!
The Winchester Mystery House is a mansion in San Jose, California, which was once the personal residence of Sarah Winchester, the widow of gun magnate William Wirt Winchester. Located at 525 South Winchester Blvd. in San Jose, the Queen Anne Style Victorian mansion is renowned for its size, its architectural curiosities, and its lack of any master building plan. It is a designated California historical landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is privately owned and serves as a tourist attraction.

 

 

We hear strange voices and some bizarre things happen when we learn the history of the mansion! Fonseca stops down during the show we heard voices listen and you be the judge!! Your Nerd Side went every where in the house and saw things and heard things!

HERE ARE JUST THE VOICES WE HEARD:

Listen closely we pumped up!

 

Since its construction in 1884, the property and mansion were claimed by many, including Winchester herself, to be haunted by the ghosts of those killed with Winchester rifles. Under Winchester’s day-to-day guidance, its “from-the-ground-up” construction proceeded around the clock, by some accounts, without interruption, until her death on September 5, 1922, at which time work immediately ceased. Sarah Winchester’s biographer, however, claims that Winchester “routinely dismissed workers for months at a time ‘to take such rest as I might'” and notes that “this flies in the face of claims by today’s Mystery House proprietors that work at the ranch was ceaseless for thirty-eight years

After her husband’s death from tuberculosis in 1881, Sarah Winchester inherited more than $20.5 million. She also received nearly fifty percent ownership of the Winchester Repeating Arms Company, giving her an income of roughly $1,000 per day, equivalent to about $23,000 a day in 2013. These inheritances gave her a tremendous amount of wealth which she used to fund the ongoing construction.

Tabloids from the time claimed that, at some point after her infant daughter and husband both died, a Boston medium[told her (while supposedly channeling her late husband) that she should leave her home in New Haven and travel West, where she must continuously build a home for herself and the spirits of people who had fallen victim to Winchester rifles. Winchester left New Haven and headed for California. Though it is possible she was simply seeking a change of location and a hobby during her lengthy depression, other sources claim that Winchester came to believe her family and fortune were haunted by ghosts, and that only by moving West and continuously building them a house could she appease these spirits.

In 1884 she purchased an unfinished farmhouse in the Santa Clara Valley and began building her mansion. Carpenters were hired and worked on the house day and night until it became a seven story mansion. She did not use an architect and added on to the building in a haphazard fashion, so the home contains numerous oddities such as doors and stairs that go nowhere, windows overlooking other rooms and stairs with odd-sized risers. Many accounts attribute these oddities to her belief in ghosts

Gwendoline Christie Will Be Back for ‘Star Wars: Episode VIII’

Gwendoline Christie Will Be Back for ‘Star Wars: Episode VIII’

FB_phasma

Gwendoline Christie has confirmed that she will be back for “Star Wars: Episode VIII” to reprise her role as the well-armored Captain Phasma. While speaking to People Magazine on the red carpet last night at the 22nd annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, Christie was asked if she would be back for “Star Wars: Episode VIII.” Christie replied, “I will be in the next Star Wars movie. I think that’s an exclusive, actually.”

“Star Wars: Episode VIII” reportedly started filming in January of this year, so it makes sense that Christie would know if she was needed for new scenes.  Despite being on the Starkiller Base when it blew up at the end of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” Captain Phasma will apparently live again. Hopefully she’ll have an expanded role in “Episode VIII.”

The next “Star Wars” movie to hit theaters is the anthology prequel film “Rogue One,” which opens December 16, 2016. “Star Wars: Episode VIII” will debut the following year, on December 15, 2017. Gwendoline Christie can also be seen in the upcoming season of “Game of Thrones,” which lands on HBO Sunday, April 24, 2016.

We talk Avengers, Doctor Who, Comic Books and read your emails.

 

 

MIKE MATTEWS TALKS DOCTOR WHO:

Doctor Who Will Air Until At Least 2020

 

doctor who tenth anniversaryDoctor Who just celebrated the tenth anniversary of its new run on television, which started the 2005 episode “Rose,” and Christopher Eccleston as the Ninth Doctor. A decade and four Doctors later, executive producer Steven Moffat says that fans can expect the Doctor’s adventures to continue for at least another five years.“I thought it would last ten years,” Moffat tells Doctor Who Magazine. “I didn’t think it would last ten years with BBC Worldwide trying to get me in a room to talk about their plan for the next five years!”But why stop at a 15 year run?“It’s going to do a minimum of 15. I mean, it could do 26!”Even after 10 years on the show, Moffat goes on to say that it’s never an easy production.

“It’s not easy to find new people,” he says. “It’s not easy to find new Doctors. That could be the danger – that you start to think that it’s easy. There’s nothing easy about doing Doctor Who.”

Moffat says that the show is a strong as it ever has been since the relaunch in 2005, and is actually growing internationally.

“Ten years on, our ratings are pretty much the same. Actually, internationally, bigger. No show does that! You’re meant to go down! Doctor Who just stays. It’s extraordinary!” he said.

He also revealed that the BBC had a surprisingly practical outlook when Moffat took the reins from previous showrunner Russell T. Davies.

“When I first took it over, the BBC said to me, ‘We’ve done all our calculations. The ratings will now fall. Expect to lose quite a bit. We don’t mind that. We’re going to keep it going. So long as it’s a good show we won’t mind if the ratings stop being quite as amazing as they were. That’s absolutely fine.’ And they didn’t. They pretty much stayed the same.”

Ben Stephenson, head of BBC drama, echoed Moffat’s confidence in the series, saying there’s no reason that can’t be celebrating the show’s 100th anniversary in another 50 years.

“Because it’s such an amazing format, because you can constantly revive it and re-imagine it, then as long as the people looking after it are passionate about it and the BBC is passionate about it, there’s absolutely no reason why it can’t do another 50 years.”

Doctor Who will return for Series 9, with Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor, later in 2015.

ANNA MARIA WITH DEAD POOL:

The Merc With a Meta Mouth: 5 Ways Deadpool Breaks the Fourth Wall

Deadpool 43 cover

In case you didn’t notice, Deadpool and his upcoming movie have been in the news everywhere lately. That means it’s time for another arbitrarily constructed list meant to inspire debate and/or frustrating longtime fans who know the subject infinitely better than some overworked writer.

 

 

 

 

If that intro felt a little too on-the-nose for you, it’s because this list both honors and explores one of Deadpool’s signature characteristics – his propensity to break down the “fourth wall” between the comic and the reader. In celebration, ComicBook.com decided to break the fourth wall ourselves with some insight (and humor. Please find this article funny.) into constructing a list of Deadpool fourth wall breaks (we naturally kept it to five, because who has time to ramble on longer than that?).Deadpool MvC3 weapon barHonorable Mention: One of These Things Is Not Like the OtherListicles will typically utilize an honorable mention where the author wants to discuss something that’s kind of related to the topic at hand, but is too fringe for the article’s main theme. In this case, that’s Deadpool’s fourth-wall bust in the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 video game. Being the cosmically aware character that he is, Deadpool uses the game’s energy bars and power meters to attack his opponents. It’s clever touch from the game programmers, as it totally captures Deadpool’s archaic nature. But since the rest of this list will focus on comic book moments, this video game instance is relegated to the honorable mention pile. Also, that technically means this list has six entries, but we’ll continue to label it as five because honorable mentions don’t really count.Deadpool Bullseye5. Leave Nothing To The Imagination 

In this panel from Joe Kelly’s landmark run on Deadpool, the “Merc with a Mouth” (just worked in a nickname so we don’t have to write the word “Deadpool” twice in a row) acknowledges that he’s a character in a serialized piece of fiction when he tells his adversary, Bullseye, exactly when the two last tangoed. While it’s a helpful guideline for the reader (to this day, editors will still use those little * notes to alert readers of prior events), Kelly dropped this line into Deadpool to mock tired superhero/villain banter and immediately cut to the chase.
This bit was ahead of its time and is still quite funny, but as its fifth-place ranking, suggests, it’s pretty basic fourth wall breaking.

Deadpool Hawkeye

4. The Other Guys

Building off the last entry (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, just scroll up), this issue of A+X features a team-up between Deadpool and Hawkeye that’s derailed when an adversary misidentifies them as “Purple Arrow” and “Ninja Spider-Man.” For an extra turn of the fourth wall-breaking screw, Deadpool comments on the newness of their Hawkeye and Deadpoolbooks, and how their lack of exposure has lead to the misidentifications.

The “Purple Arrow” comment is just an obvious poke at the fact that Hawkeye, despite his current “A” list status in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is a blatant ripoff of DC Comics’ Green Arrow. Meanwhile, Deadpool’s crack on how his and Hawkeye’s new books haven’t developed a strong following yet reads as a good-natured swipe at the frequency of superhero comic reboots and relaunches.

Deadpool Talks to Boxes

3. Mixed Media

Remember when we mentioned video game Deadpool fighting with energy bars (see, the honorable mentions do count!)? In the same vein, Deadpool has a habit of acknowledging his comic book status by referring to medium conventions like dialogue balloons and narration boxes (aka, “little yellow boxes”). Starting with Gail Simone’s run scripting Deadpool, the character would converse with these little yellow boxes, and in some instances, argue with them (like I am with the person who keeps putting all this parenthetical information into this listicle. Stop doing that). Thank you.

Deadpool Liefeld joke

2. Honor Thy Father (Or Not)

Deadpool is not the first comic book character to acknowledge his creator. An early Silver Age issue of the Fantastic Four actually featured Doctor Doom interacting with Stan Lee and Jack Kirby as part of his plot to conquer Reed Richards and company. But there’s just something smarmy about the way Deadpool smugly winks and nods at his creator, Rob Liefeld, that has a certain je ne sais quoi about it (French? Does this writer think he’s better than me?). A lot of that is due to Liefeld’s controversial status in the comic book industry. An artist who hit supernova status when he was practically a teenager, Liefeld gets credited for pioneering many 90s artistic trends that are derided by fans and critics today – i.e. oversized guns, disproportionate anatomy, and pouches. The Fantastic Four addressed the fact that Kirby wouldn’t draw Galactus the same way twice, but Deadpool has never shied from a shot at Liefeld. And depending on where your opinion stands on Liefeld, that’s either very funny or mean-spirited.

Deadpool Ryan Reynolds

1. Look Familiar? 

What better way to end a listicle that’s tied to recent Deadpool movie news than by listing a Deadpool film reference in the top spot?

Actually, what’s amazing about this panel is that it was published nearly seven years BEFORE Wolverine: Origins, the first movie where Ryan Reynolds portrays the “Merc With a Mouth” (before they took away his mouth for reasons that anger fans to this day). Did the comic’s writer, Gail Simone, have some kind of crystal ball that told her Reynolds would one day play Deadpool, or was she just making a cheeky joke about him at the expense of a random and handsome actor? Either way, acknowledging the real world outside of the fictional world of comics books, is, by definition, breaking the fourth wall. So coincidental foresight, this instance earns the top spot (and, as we said at the very top of this article, this list was explicitly timed to tie-in to the wave of Reynolds/Deadpool movies news).

Set Videos: Deadpool Waves To Fans & Performs Acrobatic Stunts

More fantastic footage from the set of 20th Century Fox’s Deadpool has surfaced online and it is filled with awesomeness.Torry Courte had a birds eye view of the set as they filmed multiple takes of Wade Wilson performing acrobatic stunts. He also captured a shootout scene in which a group of thugs open fire on our mutant anti-hero.Global News has some fun footage of Vancouver-born superstar Ryan Reynolds waving to his fans while wearing his red and black superhero costume.Deadpool (April 7th Vancouver, BC) from Torry Courte on Vimeo.

Deadpool – Filming in Vancouver, BC from Torry Courte on Vimeo.

Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.

Our First Look at the Full Suicide Squad Cast

Now, a constant barrage of leaks from the Deadpool set may well have dominated the past week’s awesome-superheroic-images news cycle – but that doesn’t mean that the Merc with a Mouth is going to get the last word.After all, Suicide Squad hasn’t even really stepped into the ring yet, and with filming only just about to get started on the all-star DC adventure, things are liable to get over-exciting any day now.Or, in fact, right about now.Y’see, director David Ayer – who has in the past few weeks joined with cast-member Jared Leto to tease the film’s new Joker – just released an image on Twitter…and it’s something pretty special:Yup, that’s right. That there is pretty much the entire cast of Suicide Squad, all hanging out in one place at the same time…

 

From left to right – Director David Ayer, Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), Jay Hernandez (El Diablo), Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang) and Viola Davis (Amanda Waller).

As well as:

From left to right – Will Smith (Deadshot), Karen Fukuhara (Plastique), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn) and Cara Delevingne (Enchantress).

The thing is, though, you may well have noticed that there are a couple of famous faces missing – and three surprising new ones included.

Well, Jared Leto is presumably busy getting into the role of the Joker (watch out, Toronto!), but what about Joe Manganiello, heavily rumored to be playing Deathstroke in the movie?

Well, according to Umberto Gonzalez (a.k.a. Latino-Review’s El Mayimbe), that’s very much not going to happen:

Instead, those three new faces?

(A.k.a., from left to right – Adam Beach, Jim Parrack, and Ike Barinholtz)

They’ll apparently be playing Ravan, Deathstroke, and Dr. Hugo Strange respectively.

Which is actually a pretty big reveal to just throw into a full cast shot like that. Nicely played, Mr. Ayer. Nicely played…

The big question now, then? When are we going to get to see them in costume?

‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2′ Story Treatment Is Complete

In fact, after writing and directing Guardians of the Galaxy to critical and financial success, Gunn has more creative freedom than any other Marvel director to date and is using that to get far more original with his ideas and deviating from Marvel Comics stories for the sequel – according to his own words. He recently pitched his GOTG 2story though, and they loved it (even though they called it a “risk”).

So, where are we now? After the pitch, Gunn submitted his treatment, has a followup meeting about it this week and will begin writing the actual screenplay in a matter of days

“I turned in my treatment. I’m going in to meet about it Friday and we will start working on the screenplay next week,” Gunn explained yesterday using the Periscope social media broadcasting app, later adding during the video that the script is “very, very far along.” How long? 70 pages long.

Guardians of the Galaxy art by Patrick Brown 1024x551 Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Story Treatment Is Complete

As for the “they” of it all, the Marvel Studios top brass Gunn is bouncing story ideas off of executives, producers (and executive producers) Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Jonathan Schwartz, and Victoria Alonso. He described the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 session as the “best experience he ever had with a pitch.”

Other tidbits revealed during his live Q&A yesterday:

  • Hardest part of Guardians of the Galaxy was setting up and designing the characters – making the sequel that much more easier having the core characters already realized.
  • “Ronan is a bad guy, we killed him. Not everything is going to happen in the movies the same as the comics.”
  • Fans will get to know the Guardians in a “deeper way” in the sequel.
  • Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will be in 3D (obviously).
  • “We don’t do motion capture for Rocket and Groot,” in response to a question about Vin Diesel doing mocap for the sequel. They just reference images at times.
  • Might have figured out a way for Karen Gillan to play Nebula in the sequel without having to shave her head.
  • GOTG 1 & 2 writing process: Plots out whole story and then writes it after.
  • There’s little improv on set but there’s some during rehearsals which Gunn then adds to the script.

Non-Guardians Marvel tidbits:

  • Would like to use drones to shoot in an upcoming movie.
  • “lept for joy” at Spider-Man joining MCU.
  • Favorite current comics: Silver Surfer, Wolverines, Secret Avengers
  • Really dug the trailer for Fantastic Four and has already seen Avengers 2 and “liked it.”

Non-Marvel:

  • Would never direct an X-Men film
  • Fave supervillain: Heath Ledger’s Joker

For more on Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Gunn recently revealed that his favorite character will be in it and that he wants to work with Al Pacino (who has already met with Marvel). The sequel will reveal Star-Lord’s father and show that the heroes are “worse than you think.” Sorry comic readers, no Captain Marvel or Nova in this one but Gunn does already have Guardians of the Galaxy 3 story ideas

‘The Walking Dead’ Broke Its Own Season Finale Ratings Record

twd carol

AMC

This just in: AMC’s zombie show is pretty popular.

For the fourth season in a row — so, all of them, minus the first, obviously — The Walking Deadset a new season finale ratings record. Not only that, but every episode this season, dating back to October 2014, ranked in the “top 50 telecasts across all of television among adults 18-49.”

From a press release:

The season five finale of The Walking Dead last night was the highest-rated finale in series history, delivering 15.8 million viewers and 10.4 million adults 18-49. The episode capped the show’s strong fifth season with all 16 episodes ranking in the top 20 entertainment telecasts across all of television this broadcast season among adults 18-49. When including sports and specials, all 16 episodes of The Walking Dead season five rank in the top 50 telecasts across all of television among adults 18-49 – the first time a series has achieved this in cable history. With time-shifted playback added in, this season finale of The Walking Dead should exceed more than 20 million viewers and 14 million adults 18-49.

In case you’re wondering, the highest-rated episode of the entire show is the fifth season premiere “No Sanctuary,” which was watched by 17.29 million people. So, compared to its own remarkable success, ONLY 15.8 million viewers is a disappointment. But compared to every other show? Well, there’s a reason Fear the Walking Dead already has a two-season commitment.

STAR WARS TIE FIGHTER ANIME SHORT FINALLY COMPLETE

Remember that amazing, two-minute Star Wars TIE Fighter anime short film from a few years back? Well, creator Paul Johnson has finally released the full seven-minute video after four long years of animating.

Johnson explained, “What if there was an Empire-focussed short Star Wars animation, drawn with the crazy detail and shading of classic ’80s anime that’s all but vanished from Japan nowadays? Well, I tried my best.” Check out the awesomeness below:

“Don’t support me on Patreon, because I don’t have one!” Johnson added in the video description. “And don’t donate to my Kickstarter, because I don’t have one of those either. Instead, if you enjoyed this, give someone at your workplace, uni, school or whatever a random bar of chocolate or can of Coke or something. Seriously, it’ll probably make their day. That would totally make my day.” (Seriously, Lucasfilm — hire this man!)

You can also check out the poster Johnson made for the short, inspired by those “really classy oil/acrylic-painted movie posters by folks like Drew Struzan… You know the ones,” Johnson said.

Dayum!

The “Super Troopers 2″ Crowdfunding Campaign Raised $2 Million in a Day

The Broken Lizard comedy team launched in Indiegogo campaign on Tuesday to raise money for a sequel to their 2001 comedy “Super Troopers”.  They were hoping to raise $2 million in a month.  They ended up doing it IN A DAY. But that doesn’t mean you should stop donating.  They issued a statement saying, quote, “We can make the skinny version of ‘Super Troopers 2′ but I think we all want the muscular version so let’s keep going.

“We’ve got some big stuff in the script, and if we’re able to raise enough money, you’ll get to see all of it.”

SONY ACQUIRES ROBOTECH SCREEN RIGHTS, PLANS A MOVIE FRANCHISE

Sony Pictures announced today that they have secured the rights to the science-fiction anime Robotech, “with the intention of moving quickly toward production of a future global franchise.”

The project had previously been set up at Warner Bros. where star-producer Tobey Maguire had tried to get a film version off the ground.

As we reported last month, the film will be produced and written by a trio behind 300, producers Gianni Nunnari and Mark Canton and screenwriter Michael Gordon.

The project will be overseen at Sony Pictures by Doug Belgrad, Michael De Luca, and Matthew Milam. De Luca said in a statement, “Robotech is unique in that it has always been a marriage of spectacle with human characters that seem drawn from life. That’s why we are so excited to be working with Mark and Gianni as we move forward on this project. With a history that offers an epic love triangle, a renegade hero, and a world on the brink of extinction, Robotech offers a wide scope and a rich and impressive universe where the story possibilities are endless.”

“When the rights to Robotech became available we jumped; Mark and I knew it had what big movies in today’s world must have if they want to grab everyone: insane visuals AND powerful themes,” said Nunnari. “The characters in Robotech wrestle with both the destructive and redemptive powers of technology; nothing is more relevant today than that.”

Executive producer Frank Agrama of Harmony Gold, the original intellectual property rights holder, said: “Patience is a virtue. We at Harmony Gold have waited 30 years for the chips to fall in place. Finally they have, and finally our dreams have come true. I am sure that our fans and the public at large will be flabbergasted with what they will hear and see on the screen. Thank you Gianni, Mark, Ralph and above all, all of the Columbia Pictures people involved.”

While Robotech may be best known for the hugely popular ’80s TV series, it’s also a franchise comprised of books, role playing games, video games, toys and collectibles.

Star Trek TV Series Reportedly In The Works

star-trek-actors

A new TV series set in the universe of Star Trek is in development, according to Latino Review.The project will reportedly be headed to CBS, who have a long-standing relationship with Paramount, the producers of the film franchise, and who are getting into genre in a big way in the fall with Greg Berlanti’s Supergirl.They have few details, although an earlier TV reboot titled Star Trek: Federation was proposed a few years back and they’ve heard that X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer, who was at one point attached to Federation, is attached to the project.

‘The Walking Dead’ spinoff will be called ‘Fear the Walking Dead’

Later this year AMC is launching a spinoff series to its most popular series, “The Walking Dead,” and we finally know its name.

Creator Robert Kirkman revealed the name of the companion show on Twitter.

Get ready for “Fear the Walking Dead. “Fear the Walking Dead” has already been confirmed for two seasons.

Unlike the original series, which takes place on the East Coast, the new series will be set in Los Angeles. The series will star Kim Dickens and Cliff Curtis along with Frank Dillane and Alycia Debnam Carey.

Season one will comprise of six one-hour episodes, and will debut on AMC in summer 2015. Season 2 will air in 2016. We don’t know much else about the show, but the first trailer for the series will debut after the 90-minute finale of “The Walking Dead” Sunday evening.

The Reverse Flash poster reveals he’s coming to The Flash March 17th

reverse flash cw thumbThe Flash is returning after a short break on The CW on Tuesday, March 17th, at 8 p.m. PT/ET. We know that Liam McIntyre will be making an appearance in the “Out of Time” episode as the Weather Wizard, a metahuman coming to avenge the death of his brother who died in the pilot. Now The CW has a released a new poster featuring Tom Cavanagh as The Reverse Flash in all his yellow glory.I’m guessing Reverse Flash will be having a small part, since the majority of the episode will most likely be about the Flash trying to put a stop to the Weather Wizard.reverse flash cw

“Mark Mardon aka The Weather Wizard (guest star Liam McIntyre) appears in Central City intent on avenging his brother Clyde’s death, and sets his sights on Joe, who shot Clyde. When Mardon attacks Joe and Barry, Barry is able to super-speed them to safety but Mardon gets away. Barry warns Joe not to go after a meta-human alone but Joe doesn’t listen and ends up in grave danger. Meanwhile, Cisco looks into the night the team captured the Reverse Flash and realizes something doesn’t add up and begins to wonder whether Joe was right about Dr. Wells. Barry and Linda (guest star Malese Jow) end up on an awkward double date with Eddie and Iris.”

Smallville’s Jonathan Kent doesn’t approve of Man of Steel’s Jonathan Kent

jonathan kent john schneider kevin costnerWe’ve seen many versions of Jonathan Kent, Clark Kent’s adoptive father, in the Superman films and TV shows. Now we have Smallville‘s John Schneider, who played Jonathan Kent, talking about how he wasn’t a fan of Kevin Costner’s Jonathan Kent in Man of Steel.There was a scene in the movie that turned Schneider’s head. He told Vintage Sound 93.1’s The Tony Tone Show that he didn’t care for how Costner’s Kent raised Clark.

“I love Kevin, and I love what Kevin does. But I didn’t care for one scene in there, where Jonathan was advising Clark to do something that was self-serving, it was tell a lie, I can’t remember exactly what it was. I think Jonathan Kent is the best dad perhaps ever depicted on television. And I don’t mean my work, I just mean the man I was fortunate enough to play. He was a great father, and I don’t think the one in Man of Steel was a great father. He had some flaws that don’t belong in a comic book. I really had wished that had been me.”

The scene could be the one where Costner’s Kent told Clark to not save the kids in the school bus, since that would reveal his powers.

You can hear Schneider talk about it at the 5-minute mark.
