The Man of Steel

Crazy! I would not have thought that to be possible.

 

I have an issue of Ghost Rider vs The Avengers and GR basically outruns Mjolnir after it has been throw at him, at which point it tries to return to him, only to have GR grab a hold and BAMMO! - KO's Thor.

That further justifies my ever growing hatred of the porn parody genre. Especially the superhero ones.

Really? I think it's the only thing that makes porn even close to being watchable.

I like that they seem to have gone with an early (if not the original?) "S", and I don't mind the texture on the uniform. But the material looks a bit shiny and rubbery, it seems to have a substantial thickness to it that I don't like. And the way the "S" emblem sits on top of the costume, like a badge, isn't great.

 

But I'll wait to see the finished product. A dodgy costume hasn't alone put me off a superhero movie in the past.

The haircut looks ridiculous to me. If you google images of Henry Cavill, most of his real-life haircuts look more like Superman than the faux horror movie bouffant in that still.

There's a nearly exact trailer but with Jor-El doing a voice over.

 

I like them! This is a nice teaser, doing exactly what it's supposed. Tease us with what is coming. It looks very un-Zack Snyder. I wonder if Christopher Nolan had some influence. Which is very good!

 

A bit too reminiscent of the Batman Begins teaser, "you've traveled the world.."..etc...etc

This is really looking good. If only I could forget that Snyder's justification for changing Watchmen's ending was it was perfectly believable that Superman would remove all of Earth's nuclear weapons and force the nations to behave. It's as if he learned nothing from Superman 4... :sad:

I concur. It seems sort of lowbrow. My only hope for it comes in my faith in the director, being the only person who liked Watchmen until the end (I didn't like the end, but I thought it was excellent up until its controversial ending, and even parts of it were faithful).

Right, and that might be perfect. For example-who would want to see a highbrow Rambo or Ahnold flick?

Whatever they became, some Rambo movies were meant to have more of a message than Man of Steel is likely to carry, Morrison quotes, and all. All I can say about Ahnie is Raw Deal had Darren McGavin, but I might be forgetting something.

So you're thinking more than Billy Madison but less than Hangar 18?
