Very skeptical about this one. Even with Nolan's involvement, I'm worried due to Snyder's track record. His releases have been getting steadily worse. Dawn of the Dead = Great, 300 = Gread, Watchmen = Average, Sucker Punch = Awful, Owl Movie = Barf.


You rate 300 over Watchmen? Are you insane?

I am certain they'll want to take their time with it and make sure they get everything right. 2011's Green Lantern, for example, was a complete mess. I have been hoping Warner Bros. would consider an Aquaman film, but there have been no plans as of yet.


Yes! I think the biggest problem right now is the fact that many of the big DC superheroes, if they ever hit the silver screen, will require lots of visual effects to properly convey the hero's abilities. Take Green Lantern. Apart from the disgusting plotline, my other fault with it were the visual effects. Understandably it's difficult to bring other-worldly creatures to life, but some things look unbelieveably fake and green-screened it just turned me off so much. The Flash would probably be another character that would require lots of visual work to make the movie more satisfying and effective.

My 2cents, don't know if you would agree.

I absolutely agree. DC's superheroes need to look spectacular on screen. If they aren't yet able to achieve the magnificent visuals required to amaze the audience, they really should wait until they can.

Certain characters have incredibly similar counterparts in the Marvel universe, though. DC had better hope Marvel doesn't produce a Namor the Submariner film first.

There are many potential on-screen supervillains within the Superman mythology. Metallo, Conduit, Darkseid, Parasite, and perhaps even the Intergang could be featured in this rebooted franchise. I would reckon the villains should not be the only challenges Superman must face, however. I feel more focus should be placed on the storytelling and the film's dramatic elements, rather than merely the character's heroic feats.

Everybody is aware he is virtually invincible and can prevent even the greatest disasters. One way to make him vulnerable and complex would be to have him fail to save lives and watch as the city around him crumbles. As a man learning to become a city's hero, he needs to be faced with difficult decisions and moral challenges.

Superman needs a good Lois lane... Could they at least cast a witty dark haired one this time instead of amy Adams??? Kate bosworth last movie was barf


Couldn't agree more.

Margot Kidder was great as Lois Lane. It's going to be hard to find someone as good as her.


I like the inclusion of Zod. That was my favourite 'Christopher Reeve' Superman movie.

The previous films certainly popularized Zod and Lex Luthor, though there are certainly a few other tremendous villains to choose from. Luthor, as Superman's arch-nemesis, is very likely to appear in a sequel. Darkseid, perhaps Superman's most powerful adversary, could also appear in a sequel.

Superman's villains generally originate from other worlds. If Warner Bros. truly want to challenge their protagonist's capabilities, the villains would have to be on the same scale as the Avengers' opponents. Superman would have to become the guardian of the Earth rather than merely the savior of Metropolis; this does not include, however, saving the planet from giant boulders.

One of the problems with Superman Returns was that the character's greatest enemy in the film was a rock.

Are those two omegas/horseshoes on his hands supposed to read 'DC'?

There are actually two teasers for this movie: the images are the same in both trailers, but one uses the voice over of Jonathan Kent (Costner) and the other uses the voice over of Jor-El (Crowe).

I am looking forward to this after watching The Dark Knight Trilogy. I am a HUGE fan of Christopher Nolan, he has done exceptionally good work along with his brother and David Goyer. Zack Snyder has a great style and for him to take on Man of Steel might give us that Superman Film we have always been wanting to see. Perhaps these will later turn into a JLA film.

However DC Comics need to learn from Marvel in my opinion. Marvel has come out with more well liked super hero films and are a step ahead of DC Comics. But I am sure that DC Comics will get around to it, a little patience and I am sure it will be worth it :)

Nothing wrong with the Superman franchise getting the Dark Knight treatment...
Well written? Looks like it should be with Goyer and Nolan having writing credits.
Well produced? The combination of Legendary and Syncopy hasn't failed yet.
Well directed? Snyder has a hit or miss record for me but all of his films have at least looked amazing.

Certainly one thing that mustn't be undervalued is that this will also be scored by Hans Zimmer... nobody does these "epic" films better.

Nope.
John Williams has done some great scores, including the original Superman films, but I think Hans Zimmer still outclasses him. This is just my opinion of course.
Hans might disagree with me though...

Agreed!

The part where he's standing and his red cape is half waving in the wind (sorry Im a very artsy person) looks really heroic.

The same goes for the score in that trailer. Although its from The Thin Red Line, it went perfectly well with it.

Very excited!

Beware people: Snyder's movie trailers always looks considerably better than his movies.

The bad news is he a mediocre director; the good news is Chris Nolan will be looking over his shoulder.

The trailer makes it look pretty good, but I think it may just be the Lord of the Rings soundtrack.

Snyder isn't mediocre at all, he's good at what he does

And a producer can do as little as makes a few phone calls in pre-production. Don't over-state his importance when I don't think anyone really knows what his role is beyond the title
