Zack Snyder to direct next Superman film

http://heatvision.hollywoodreporter....medium=twitter

Nolan and Zack Snyder, definitely an interesting team. There are already rumors now that Zod is going to be the villain.

I have to say I'm excited that it "appears" they aren't going to go totally out of left field and do something stupid and out of character for .

I mean, whose idea was it to have Gene Hackman play Lex Luthor as a comedic figure with a mumbling doofus named Otis as his henchman and with a stupid non-sexy "Miss Tessmacher" as his gun moll? Those were horrible movies.

THIS movie took the character seriously. Some people have been complaining about the flashbacks, but I thought they were a very effective way to mix the backstory in with the events currently going on.

The only thing I didn't like was the excessive use of hand cameras. I know filmmakers have liked to do that to bring a sense of realism ever since the Cops TV show became popular, but I find it distracting and annoying. Also, the extreme closeups made Diane Lane look like an old hag. But I thought the storyline was great, and the special effects for the action scenes were excellent. I do wish they'd cast a hotter woman as Lois Lane, however.

Having said all that, I'll also say I plan to see it again. I think the comparison to Batman Begins is pretty accurate.
II was one of the greatest superhero movies ever.

I just wish they did make Zod stronger cause I never felt like was in any kind of danger at all through out the entire film.

With The Dark Knight Rises, I really felt Batman was gonna die at the hands of Bane. Bane was absolutely scary in that film.

The Richard Donner cut, I agree.

I guess I'm going to go my whole life without seeing a really great, modern movie. I should just accept it. Man of Steel is an immature, scattershot mess. Completely overwrought. I love that they took him to sci-fi roots and I love that they wanted to go a more serious route, but this joyless attempt left me hoping Zack Snyder is just done. That guy makes hollow action fests and nothing more. The only reason the over reverential "Watchman" was any good at all was because he just literally translated the comic.

Man of Steel betrayed the character of completely.

Spoiler!


My only encouragement is that Snyder didn't **** anything up so badly it can't be fixed with a GREAT sequel, but unless he is replaced (As well as David Goyer) it won't happen. I even liked the cast. Hopefully the fan/critical backlash will oust Snyder, but I'm not holding my breath./rant

When I first heard Snyder was involved I expected a good looking film with manic action and very little heart or brains. As it turns out, there's all kinds of emotion in it beginning to end, and while the action is unlike anything I'd seen before (imagine the battle at the end of Avengers on steroids) the movie as a whole is surprisingly subdued and I'd even say somber in tone. Although there are a few light moments (that all worked for me), it isn't even in the same galaxy as the Donner films in terms of style. It was much more of a grown-up movie than I expected. People die, it's very science fiction at times (Krypton is freaking alien, it took a bit to get used to) and while the narrative jumps all over the place, nothing ever really felt rushed. It just felt...right.

And this may be the most origin-y origin story I've ever seen.
Spoiler!
I can't wait to see where the franchise goes from here.

I also can't wait to see it again in a few days.

I respect your opinion, and trust me I wanted to love this movie, but all the emotion it has feels completely unearned to me.
Spoiler!


Like I said before emotionally hollow. Also, when the like three times they tried to introduce some levity, they had established such a morose world and hero that their attempts felt jarring. I have a free pass to see this again, and I doubt I will.

GREAT write up by "Birthright" author Mark Waid (although he's more generous than me):

Non-Spoiler Review posted, spoiler laden review in the link.

http://thrillbent.com/blog/man-of-st...nce-you-asked/

Quote:
Non-spoiler review: Itís not for me. It had some very nice moments, several I wish Iíd written (and at least three I did, Iím proud to sayĖthere was lots of BIRTHRIGHT in it), but I canít imagine wanting to watch it again anytime soon. YMMV. Itís a good science-fiction movie, but itís very cold. Itís not a very satisfying super-hero movie. That said, if your favorite part of SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE was standing in the Fortress while Jor-El lectured him, youíre gonna love MAN OF STEEL.

It did feel to me like things may have been cut to keep the running time more reasonable, and I'm guessing that may have been one of them. I wouldn't be surprised if somewhere there exists a 3-hour version of the movie.

I've been avoiding this thread for months because I wanted to avoid spoilers... but I finally saw it this afternoon. Pretty solid. I always feel like I need to watch movies like this a second time to take it all in. Definitely chock full of action. Epic action movie... but I never really felt overwhelmed or exhausted by it. I think I might have said this a few years back after Returns... but they are just never going to make everyone happy with a movie. Too many varying opinions of what the character should and shouldn't be and do.

They definitely went head-on toward addressing issues people have with the "storyline" in general.
