Man of Steel comes out in June 2013, are you ready for another rebooted franchise?
Let's see... Batman has been rebooted twice, James Bond once, Star Trek once and now here comes Superman for, honestly, I don't know what number this will be in its rebooting sequence... fourth or fifth, I believe. Are you excited about it? Eager to see it get some traction? Or, does the Lex Luthor in you secretly make you want to see it crash and burn at the box office?
No, I am not. I am an old comic book fan, and all of the Superman movies have disappointed me.
I think the last series of Batman movies with Christian Bale were on target and X-Men did a good job. Unfortunately the Superman movies have been less than...super.
I'm actually kind of interested in this one. Though the last Superman movie was awful (I thought, anyway), I really like Henry Cavill and I am excited to see how he does as the Man of Steel. I'm less excited about a possible remake of Weird Science.
While I enjoyed the both Richard Donner Superman movies, and I can appreciate Superman Returns for what it tried to do, I feel that it was necessary to reboot the series if they ever planned on bringing Superman back to the big screen. A franchise can only go on so long before it needs to be re-invented in some way. It gives the writers and filmmakers flexibility with characters and plots because they don't have a string of movies already existing that dictate things that need to have happen.
I'm looking forward to the movie, and my first hub I ever wrote on here was about it, where I gave some of my opinions on the movie in comparison to the 1979 Superman. I'm curious to see how well I can accept Cavill as Superman, because, unlike Reeve and Routh, he's not an unknown actor. He's not someone that everyone knows and can instantly recognize, but he still has a decent following to him, and I personally feel that such a thing hurts an actor trying to play a superhero. It makes it harder to see the actor as the superhero because you recognize him from being in other things. With Reeve, I didn't see him as an actor playing Superman. I saw him AS Superman, because until that first movie, I'd never seen him before, and he was able to sell it well partially because of that. With Cavill, because of his notoriety, he needs to be able to sell the character even better than Reeve did in order for it to work in my opinion.
I really hope it does work though and that the movie does well, because I get the feeling that, if it doesn't, DC would likely resign to only making Batman movies, fearing that any attempt to bring another of their pantheon to the big screen would fail.
I'm going to wait for the DVD release. There hasn't been a good Superman movie since 1981.
I think this movie will... at the very least, make up for Superman Returns......... and at the very most will blow our minds and finally be the Superman movie that everyone deserves..... maybe not the one everyone wants, but the one we finally deserve...... but take that for what it is worth cause if we liked some of the horrible movies that I had in mind when writing "A Call To Arms.... Sort of", we don't really deserve much if you ask me.
Meh, I'm really not psyched about this. Maybe because I'm one of the few who appreciated Singer's take on it. But other than that, I'm not a fan of Zack Snyder. Plus, the attempt to bring a darker, grittier approach to the film is too forced. They are trying too hard to emulate Nolan's success.
I'll probably wait and see how it does, and if necessary, rent it.
