I was really hoping they'd go back into editing and get rid of those chem trails. Breaking the sound barrier is fine, I get it, he's going really fast, but the chem trails are really dumb.

Darth_Lukecash: I actually found that intriguing. Pa Kent was worried about Clark's abilities making him an outcast. This sounds like an actual conversation that Father who has an all powerful son may actually have. There may be no easy answer.


Pa Kent was always the rock that Clark Kent was built off of. That's what made Smallville interesting. He was there just long enough to get Clark started in the right direction. A few times they played with the idea of Clark being raised by someone other than the Kents and just how bad that would be.

No matter how messed up Clark got his father's teaching would bring him back around. In tv, comics, or movies. Pa Kent was the backbone

And yes Pa Kent was Clark's father.

puckrock2000: Yet another origin story? Is there anyone left who still doesn't know the origin of Superman?


Isn't he avenging his murdered parents or something?

thornhill: SkepticalBeliever: The Stealth Hippopotamus: When asked if Clark should have let a bus full of kids die Pa Kent doesnt say "maybe".


Are you surprised? It's a Zach Snyder film with Chris Nolan producing. It's going to be a dark, "more realistic" version of Superman similar to the Nolan Batman films. Whether this is a good or bad thing is up to you.

If they're so concerned with realism, then why the hell couldn't they have made the custom a little less ridiculous?


Because, then he wouldn't be Superman. The cape, the S, the suit in general has to be there to be associated with the name Superman. It's a prerequisite that you can't really mess with.

Didn't they? No red underwear and the suit looks closer to armor than spandex.

voran: So...is this a reboot 'origin' story where people are encountering Superman for the 'first time'? And...is he fighting other kryptonians? :)


Yes, it's a complete reboot. And yes, he's fighting other Kryptonians, in this case it's General Zod and Black Zero (The terrorist organization responsible for the destruction of Krypton version). I'm guessing he has a whoopsie and opens the Phantom Zone...

thornhill: Darth_Lukecash: voran: So...is this a reboot 'origin' story where people are encountering Superman for the 'first time'? And...is he fighting other kryptonians? :)

Every generation does their version of Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, Tarzan, Sherlock Homes, King Arthur, Robin Hood, Superman and Batman.

Hell, Doctor Who reimagines itself with each incarnation and producers.

Except when people re-stage Shakespeare they completely reimagine the setting in order to try and gain new insight into the characters. With the comic book movies, the origin story remains mostly the same.


if you stage Romeo and Juliet with Juliet going off to college and Romeo opening a headship and marrying a girl name moonflower- it ceased to be Romeo and Juliet.

Superman must come from a doom planet of Krypton. Spider-Man must be bitten by a radioactive spider. Batman must have his parents killed and influence by Bat symbols.

Otherwise-you wouldn't be telling the story.

bulok: Rwa2play: Saw the trailer and only one word describes it: Underwhelming.

I'm not even comparing this to the "Iron Man 3" trailer, even compared to the "Dark Knight Rises" and "The Avengers" trailer this was...meh. A trailer should be getting me giddy to watch it; I can't even muster the strength to be interested in even getting excited about it.

I think the music made it a little less interesting. If they had used something similar to John William's score there would be a lot more excitement. The music for this one sounded a lot like Elysium from The Gladiator.


Like the other trailers I mentioned I couldn't listen to them, could only watch them.

"The Avengers": WANT
"The Dark Knight Rises": WANT
"Iron Man 3": WANT
"Man of Steel": meh.

That's not exactly hopeful AFAIC; if I couldn't get up for the trailer with just the scenes...there's not much hope for this movie I'm afraid. I could be wrong as I was on "The Amazing Spider-Man".

I couldn't tell anything about the story, effects, acting just from that trailer. It looks pretty much like any big budget Hollywood CGI heavy action flick.

I dunno, just can't get past my ideal supes being more along the lines of barrel-chested Alex Ross supes and not some skinny kid.
 
2012-12-11 03:30:52 PM  
This looks very promising. I hated all of the '70s Superman movies then, and really hate them now. Never saw the last one due to all the negative feedback.

DC characters lend themselves to this type of treatment, especially Batman. Given the historical rap on Superman , even the inspiration for Stan Lee to go crazy with all the Marvel characters, was that Superman was too perfect and boring, this looks like it could be a wonderful way to like the character again.

supes, really? REALLY?
 
2012-12-11 03:31:43 PM  
Superman really is the lamest super hero. He is invincible except for this one kind of green rock that hurts him? Unless this movie involves kyrptonite, nothing can hurt him so where is the danger in him not being able to save the day? The Doomsday/Reign of Supermen storyline was the only interesting thing in the entire run of the comics and even that they deus ex machina'd the ending by making him none of the original 4 posers. There is zero depth to the Superman character and there is no reason he should be as popular as he is

Also, taking off your glasses is the dumbest/laziest disguise ever, and we are all dumber for accepting it as part of the premise

He used Donner as an influence in Batman Begins- telling a serious detailed origin story. It still was a Batman story.

But this is Nolan/Snyder version of the origin. It will be different-but still Superman

Setting "Returns" aside, you WANT to be excited for a movie. You WANT to say 'SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!"...and this doesn't do anything like that for me.

You would think that after the disaster that was "Returns" and the trailer for "Dark Knight Rises" that TPTB would give viewers a reason to give a damn about this movie.

Remember that Punisher clip that was all the rage? That's where the "Man of Steel" trailer should've been. The trailer for "Iron Man 3"? That's where "Man of Steel" should've been...and it's not.

That's disappointing.

Iron man has to be kept alive by part of the suit.
Thor needs a hammer and family issues.
Being the Hulk is a curse.
Wonder Woman is not from around here.

Who could get the furthest from their comic roots? Flash? Can't really say what Barry Allen is all about. Maybe you could deviate from him and still have a good Flash movie.

I may have worded that poorly. "Good story based on what little I've seen" might be more accurate. But frankly, yeah, I thought Clark "finding" himself and debating his father's views gave some insight into a part of the plot, and actors and visuals that I saw came off pretty well.

I see that they're trying to give him some dramatic moral choices, but the action sequences and his fight scenes will always be boring because you know there is no chance he can be hurt. Sure, he might get bloodied up a little, but never seriously injured. Think about Batman's encounters with Bane in the last Batman film. You really felt the danger Batman was in, in facing that opponent. Sure, you knew he was going to win the end but there was still a danger there. Superman is literally indestructible. The only way they can make the action sequences exciting will be to put those around him in peril. He might have to save Lois or his family but he'll never have to fight to save his own life

I'm not against seeing another Superman movie. I'm just a bit sick of all the reboots. Instead of rebooting the series with another origin movie, make a stand alone movie. Sure, change the actor, costume, etc. You can still do that and not have to reboot.

If I am reading this correctly, and my comprehension has been shiate lately, I see where you are coming from. Never thought about it that way. Are you interested in the introspective Who Am I stuff that they appear to be attempting to give the character some depth? Not a trap, genuinely interested.
