Can we just go ahead and say that DC's characters and stories are pretty much always going to make crap films?
 
2012-07-22 02:34:11 PM
This clip didn't really do much to move me either towards or away from seeing the movie. I know it was only a teaser, but it didn't really tell me anything except that it's going to be darker than the usual Superman stuff, and will tell the origin story again. I'll wait to see a full trailer to decide anything.

Lost Thought 00: ThatBillmanGuy: From what I took of the whole hitchhiking thing, is that he's heading north. And I guess the Crab Boat would also be the best way to get further at a certain point. So I think he's trying to get to the Fortress or where it will be made.

Or just product placement for the discovery channel. Probably hooks up with a troop of gold miners to make in to inland Alaska. Then uses their labor and machinery to build the fortress, and promptly murders all the witnesses.

/Superman is the villain in this movie
//The shot of him "flying"?
///That's him pushing the earth into the Sun.


It's been done.

HotWingAgenda: BroVinny: Mickey Mouse

Mickey Mouse has an origin story for his superpowers?


rocky_howard: They stated that you can't kill Hulk while he's in Banner form because he instantly goes back to being Hulk.

And that is why the Hulk is worse than Superman. At least with Superman, you know ahead of time that he can't be killed, will always be perfect, etc. With the Hulk, they keep jerking you around, letting you think he might be killable, under the right conditions... and then they go all deus ex. I heard a while back the moron writers made it so Hulk and Banner got split into two separate beings, with the excuse that Banner was always evil, and the intelligent, friendly Hulk was trapped inside him waiting to be freed. What a steaming load.


The even better thing is that there ARE ways to kill Superman: Use Green Kryptonite, depower him with Red Sun radiation then shoot him, punch him really really hard, etc.

Hulk is thus bullshiat character that always says "fark YOU" and gets better XD

Mr_Juche: Pelvic Splanchnic Ganglion: MBK: What a shiatty, shiatty teaser.

If they turn Superman into a dark, brooding hero...they deserve the POS that movie will be.

It will be a POS anyway. Superman is a crappy character.

Obligatory.............


Yeah, that just about sounds like everything that's been wrong with DC since at least the 70's.

Hint: They stated that you can't kill Hulk while he's in Banner form because he instantly goes back to being Hulk.


Hint: Not they don't. No where in the films do they state this. Anywhere. So evidently you haven't seen the movies.


It's also from the comics.

Well, they do say that he tried to put a bullet in his mouth and the Hulk spit it out. I took that to mean that he pretty much can't be killed as Bruce either.

Uh, Banner says he tried shooting himself in the mouth, the "other guy" (Hulk) caught the bullet. I've only seen it once but I remember the line. Actual quote from IMDB:

Bruce Banner: I got low! I didn't see an end, so I put a bullet in my mouth... and the other guy spit it out!

Someone probably could at this point with how often the stuff shows up. It seems like most of the damn planet ended up landing on Earth.

I'm surprised someone doesn't just give their henchmen a few Kryptonite bullets. Sure, Superman could dodge them if he tried, but since he usually just stands there and lets the bullets deflect off of him, the first shot is free.

That just means if he sees it coming, he can hulk out on you. It doesn't say some sniper or bomb that he doesn't see coming can't kill him. If he couldn't be killed, it would be pretty stupid for him to run, don't you think?

Yeah, so what. That doesn't mean anything other than hulk is self aware even when Banner is in charge. If you were to put a bomb in his car that Hulk didn't know about, what might happen then?

Like I said, if Banner were invincible, he wouldn't need to run. And the other villians created through the same technology wouldn't be able to die, either.

devildog123: Summoner101: When I first watched it I thought it was an Aquaman trailer. Up until he flew, that is.

Glad I'm not the only one. I don't really read comic books, could someone who does tell me when Superman became a commercial fisherman?


The reason some of these movies suck is because fanholes won't allow anything new to be done with the character.

Then you biatch because nothing new was done with the character...

It's more that he doesn't want anyone injured/killed because of him. He thinks being left alone is the only way that's going to happen.

Banner runs because he doesn't want to be captured and used as a guinea pig to make others like him.

A bomb hits Banner? The Hulk factor in his cells starts cellular replication at a rate faster than the bomb can destroy them. In the meantime, Banner hulks out, and before long you have a wounded, very pissed-off Hulk.

The only villain we've seen in the movies (I don't count Woo's Hulk) made with the Hulk tech is Abomination, and he's not dead (nor is it clear that he has quite the same abilities as Banner, such as the healing factor).

Or just product placement for the discovery channel. Probably hooks up with a troop of gold miners to make in to inland Alaska. Then uses their labor and machinery to build the fortress, and promptly murders all the witnesses.

I really liked the start of Irredeemable, but it kind of went to shiat at the end. The final three pages that were taken almost directly from All Star Superman were especially groan inducing.

NeoCortex42: skinink: I saw a Superman trailer in the theater, and I wondered, "Superman leaves two contrails when he flies?" It was weird.
And I'm just tired of re-booted origin stories already. We just had a Superman movie not too long ago, and Spiderman's recent reboot wasn't even that good. I wish the studios would do the same thing they did with Ed Norton's version of "The Incredible Hulk" reboot and spend as little time as possible on where he came from, and just get on the story.

Any future Superman reboot should have, at most, an opening montage like Watchmen. Devoting the entire first act or more to Superman's origin is pointless. Everybody knows the story at this point.

Has there been any leaks about possible villains?


Michael Shannon from Boardwalk Empire is playing Zod, with Foara backing him up.

That's disappointing to hear. Only made it through the first 3 trades thus far.
 
2012-07-22 04:24:51 PM
Superman is like a really hot lady who is really, really bad in bed....except every now and then, the sex is amazing.

You keep going back because you think maybe, this time, it will be amazing (ala, All Star Superman), but in reality, you leave disappointed 95% of the time.
 
2012-07-22 04:29:37 PM
From the trailer, I saw quite of bit of shaky cam. So that means a pass for me no matter how good the story.

There should be a middle ground, which is where I'd want to see it. The animated Superman series did a good job of keeping it clean and light, but not campy. I'd be happy with a movie in the same tone.

puckrock2000: EZ1923: puckrock2000: Dalek Caan's doomed mistress: Putting it to the soundtrack of 'The Fellowship of the Ring' was kind of odd. Yes, everyone loves Gandalf and was sad when he fell, but why play his lament over a Superman trailer? Brought up some just bizarre imagery in my mind.

Because they're still early in production, and the full score hasn't been composed yet - this is pretty common for teasers which are released far ahead of the film's release date. LOTR trailers used parts of "Carmina Burana", the trailer for "Renaissance Man" used part of the score from "Stripes", and so on.

Which is a little disappointing.I mean, I get that it's a new Francoise, blah blah blah, but you're not going to do better than the John Williams score. You just aren't, and they shouldn't try.

Autocorrect sucks.

They should have Superman just doing his thing helping people, not stopping crimes as much, just helping out, with fires, earthquakes and disasters.
Show the side of him that Ennis showed in his Superman/Hitman crossover, the man who can't save everyone and takes it very personally when he fails.
Keep a villain, have the epic final fight we know is coming but instead of the crime fighting montage they always have in Superman movies have a superhero montage of just saving people, because that's what Superman does.

The problem with making a good Superman movie is that the studios don't seem to want to invest in his more unfamiliar villains. I think all of us who know Supes from either the comics or the DCAU series would be excited to see the Man of Steel throw down with a bad guy on the big screen that's NOT Lex Luthor or another Kryptonian (although, I've got some ideas for Lex in a super suit). I've heard rumors our villain this time around is Zod...again. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Superman needs someone that can match his strength. But we've seen Zod before. How about Metallo, or Brainiac? Make up some super metal for them to be made out of and you've got yourself a showdown. Even better, you've got Lobo, Darkseid or Doomsday. I'd see a "Death of Superman" movie in a heart beat. I really think that The Avengers has opened the door for some of these to happen in the future. That Hulk vs. Thor fight was great. About as believable as you're ever going to get. That's our proof that CGI has gotten to the point were Superman, played by a man, can fight giant CG monsters without it looking completely fake and taking you out of the experience. Hopefully, some studio exec agrees.
