LeroyBourne: 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.


Tinfoil-like typing detected.

Unfortunately, aviation meteorology disagrees with you.

Der Poopflinger: On a side note
my kids loved the superman returns
are bored to death if you put any of the originals in

it's like they're writing movies for a certain audience or something


Your kids have shiatty taste.

Same with mine as they only like Episodes 1-3 of Star Wars.

Maybe they could have a playdate. Watching something super awful like all the Ice Age sequels.

Too bad that audience needs a parent or guardian to accompany them.

Lee's_Austin: ModernPrimitive01: Lee's_Austin: ModernPrimitive01: 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

I'm going to need to rewatch the trailer, but I think this is the attempt they are making.

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

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.


I think that will give the character more depth than previous attempts. The moral choices around what to do with the power you have will make it interesting, but in the end, I see Superman as an action movie so a bit of moral ambiguity probably won't be enough to get me into the theater. I'll probably end up Red Boxing it

PsyLord: 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.


eh, they tried that with returns and it didn't really work. Maybe the answer to superman is to create a new world for superman to live in. the original world of superman has gotten pretty dated by modern standards.

Rwa2play: Jim from Saint Paul: The right will be Fark talking about, at best, about how there isn't alot of chance this will be good. No fanboi gushlove here. Not after Superman Returns.

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.


Please re-read what you quoted. I, in no way, was juding anyone. I was saying that Fark would not, as a whole, think the trailer was great. I was also suggesting that Youtube commentors would love it.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: 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.


It's going to be about context. Pa may be trying to teach something bigger idea: like needing to protect your identity...or doing it in a way not to scare the shiat out of people.

I'm kind of ambivalent on the trailers thus far. They don't turn me off of seeing it, but I'm not excited either. Still can't be much worse than the last one.
 
2012-12-11 03:55:21 PM
Maybe they can get Heath Ledger to play Lex Luthor in the sequel and turn it into the biggest superhero movie franchise ever. And then we can get a rather choppy 3rd chapter to hastily wrap things up but we'll still love it since we're still riding off of the high of the 2nd movie.

S'all good.

Personally, looks like it could be good. It's got producers/directors I have consistently enjoyed over the last 5 to 10 years attached and it has Amy Adams. Was I wow'ed? No. Not enough to go see it in theaters. Definetly gonna RedBox it.

thornhill: Darth_Lukecash: 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.

I guess you've never seen:

Westside Story
Ran
Throne of Blood
Forbidden Planet
Kiss Me Kate


I have...and the interpretation differed- but the story largely remain the same.

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

Yeah, that weirded me out. Pa Kent has changed a lot over the years, but he's never been...amoral.


You guys are reading way too much into that. 1. He doesn't say "yes." and 2. He does say "maybe" but doesn't seem too happy or sure about the bit of advice. He just doesn't have anything better to say or know how to properly advise his adopted alien son, you know, the one with superhuman strength.

PsyLord: Darth_Lukecash: Tyrone Slothrop: A Zack Snyder movie and no freeze-shots in the trailer? There may be hope for this.

/Did like Watchmen, for the most part.

He said he's adopting a more photo-realistic style on Superman.
I've enjoyed almost all Snyders work.Sucker Punch was visually great and the story idea was Ambitious-but it did fall flat in the actual execution.

I liked the visuals but the story was just shiat.


Well, the main problem was the resolution: you can't do a girl power movie and having the end of the film with the girl lobotomized and lost in her own dreamland. Sure she won a high concept victory of not being broken mentally and bringing down the asylum - but with the movies emphasis on kicking ass- she needed a "real" win.

I like Superman, and I genuinely hope this movie is good. But I think it's not going to be great.

The one aspect of Superman they always fail to dramatize is that, on top of all his powers, he's supposed to be a genius. A lot of the Golden Age comics had Superman working with scientists and engineers to make the world a better place. I know the purpose of these movies is to get Superman from point A to smashing the f*ck out of a foe that is as powerful as he is, but in the meantime, can we please see him doing something smart?

Ditch the whole "secret identity" angle, call him by his name, and have him irrigating deserts, building space elevators, curing cancer, or whatever. And instead of his "small acts of kindness" being stupid sh*t like rescuing kittens from trees or foiling museum robberies, maybe he could take a weekend afternoon to disarm North Korea and liberate the starving people there. Maybe give a few terrorist groups a visit to the moon.

Seems there's a lot more fertile, big-idea ground to cover with Superman than has been put into the movies. (Okay, he did de-nuke the planet in one movie, but that film was such garbage it barely warrants mention.) The books that have questioned his power and influence have been the best. We need to see Superman put into a serious moral conflict, instead of being written into Boy Scout vs. Mustachioed Train Tracks Bandit stories where his only inner conflict is "I must assume secret identity to protect the ones I love" ...

Part of what made Nolan's Batman trilogy so good is that he explored big ideas. There's heavy subtext to those films, which gets hotly debated among fans. Pick a scene, and there's far more going on than the face-value action. I hope this aspect of Nolan has rubbed off on Snyder more than just making a "realistic superhero movie".

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

Agreed.


that may have some missing context the trailer editor missed. at least I hope so. not going to judge dialogue like that just yet. but I agree that it's totally out of character if left like that.
If I had to try to rationalize it I'd say that maybe Pa Kent realized that his son's power and destiny was so great that exposing him to the govt and other powers that be at that age would be worse than a few kid's lives. they could turn him into a weapon. or worse kill him.

I've read that Sucker Punch was about the various waves of feminism: each girl representing one. Baby Doll was the kind of newer 'stripping makes me empowered' kind of feminism. The movie dooms all of the girls because it thinks all previous flavors of feminism were doomed. The only girl to escape was the only girl to appear much more grown up than the rest, and she rejected everyone else's brand of feminism. I thought this was a good reading of the movie, but I still agree that the movie fell flat in some places and was still overall good.

I know that's how Singer decided to imagine him, but I don't see that in the canon character.

Okay, I guess he came back to life after the whole Doomsday thing (and what comic hero can't say that they've been through Death's revolving door), but he didn't die to redeem us of our sins or any of that other crap.

Given that Siegel and Shuster were Jewish, I'm going along with those who would say that he's more likely to be a Moses figure, if anything.

Perhaps it might help you to understand that the Jews believe in redemption from the son of God too, they just don't believe Jesus was him. Christians believe Christ is coming back. Jews don't think he's shown up yet.

I don't need a reboot of Superman. I know his back story. Is this just a money grab or do theaters think it's the only way the public will "accept" a new actor, direction style, or repeat of a villain with a different plot?

Darth_Lukecash: PsyLord: Darth_Lukecash: Tyrone Slothrop: A Zack Snyder movie and no freeze-shots in the trailer? There may be hope for this.

/Did like Watchmen, for the most part.

He said he's adopting a more photo-realistic style on Superman.
I've enjoyed almost all Snyders work.Sucker Punch was visually great and the story idea was Ambitious-but it did fall flat in the actual execution.

I liked the visuals but the story was just shiat.

Well, the main problem was the resolution: you can't do a girl power movie and having the end of the film with the girl lobotomized and lost in her own dreamland. Sure she won a high concept victory of not being broken mentally and bringing down the asylum - but with the movies emphasis on kicking ass- she needed a "real" win.


The story can be a tragedy and it worked fine as that. The problem wasn't the concept but the execution; it was far far too disjointed. You go from tension and drama to -- with literally a blink of an eye -- senses-saturating action sequences that make no sense. I understand the metaphor being painted, but the colors blended terribly.

The type of mood that is being set by a cognitive what's-real-and-what-isn't plot just doesn't blend with entirely unrelated intense-shoot-em-up sequences.

I was informed by my GF that Henry Cavill was a "gimme" for her. That, should the opportunity arise for her to actually get her talons into that man's hide, I had to step back and say nothing.

farking hell, he's a good looking man, how could I say no? shiat, he's almost enough to make ME switch teams.

well, seeing as how they tried a new actor, direction style and a repeat of a villian and it failed, it appears that the answer is yes....

Fano: Summer Glau's Love Slave: Oh please, not another goddam origin story.

Especially for Superman, the one hero whose origin is so ingrained in our collective consciousness that All-Star Superman can do it in 4 panels and 8 words.


Think about it though: the last time we had a Superman origin story on the big screen was 1979. I don't think we need one, but if it's done well, I'll enjoy it.

Batman Begins fleshed out that character's background and origin in a remarkable way, so I'm hoping this will too.
