We start off excited about having the cast of Castle in a Superman movie, slide into a nice long rant about Lois Lane, and finally talk about how disappointing the ending of the movie was.

Kara gets a lot of advice on how to be a better superhero, and then we get an awesome crime fighting montage. We enjoy seeing that Kara’s experiences are different from those of her cousin. We get a little more from her evil Aunt General Astra before she is taken out by a Kryptoknife.
