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 .

Disaster Analysts Estimate The Fictional Destruction In 'Man of Steel' Would Cost $750 Billion

Quote:
A few folks (including Daredevil writer Mark Waid and ComicsAlliance's Chris Sims) have referred to elements of director Zack Snyder's Man of Steel as "disaster porn," but just how much damage is actually dealt by , Zod and company in the movie?

Buzzfeed aimed to find out, so it contacted the folks at Watson Technical Consulting to assess the cost, in lives and in monetary figures. The results are pretty staggering.

Watson's analysts say the destruction of Metropolis in the movie would be comparable to the United States dropping the atomic bomb on Nagasaki in World War II, with 129,000 people confirmed dead, another 250,000 missing and likely dead, and another million people injured. The damage zone would be about a mile in diameter.

The monetary hit? $750 billion, with a total economic impact of $2 trillion. For comparison, the 9/11 attacks did about $55 billion worth of damage, with a total impact of $123 billion. Man of Steel's estimated movie budget was a comparatively cheap $255 million.

How does Man of Steel's movie mayhem compare to other films in the superhero genre? Last year, Kinetic Analysis Corp. (yes, there are apparently two separate firms who do this kind of thing) estimated the damage to New York in The Avengers at about $160 billion.

Looks like we have a new measure for superhero films that goes beyond simple box office. Step your game up, Avengers 2. Get to work on wiping out a whole state!

In the Batman series, the destruction had impact. In MoS it was hollow. After the catastrophe he's like "I guess I'll become a reporter now!" Not a second thought was given to the likely millions dead. Sure it'll probably be all over the place in the sequel, but in this movie, it made seem cold. More alien than human, which is a weird place to start the series.
Unless that's the main thrust of a multi-film arch.

I don't know. I haven't seen Man of Steel yet. Probably won't until it's on Netflix.

The story line, IMO, was "okay" but probably too old for younger viewer (Frat houses, college pranks, etc.). The dialog was jilted and forced and the overall narrative seemed "off" to me.

There were only a couple of moments where I laughed. Both Billy Crystal and John Goodman seemed off their game or disinterested because I felt at times as if they were just reading lines.

Wait... you're saying one of John Williams' most iconic scores had a signature Randy Newman sound?

I didn't get past the part about Randy Newman score to even finish the post, and apparently I didn't read the quote either!

No, no death, no destruction, no real pain or loss. There wasn't really even an antagonist.

The short film "The Blue Umbrella" aired before Monster's U and was infinitely more interesting and entertaining.

I'm not Dane and I don't have his contacts, but I have to believe it's a concern. I just don't know to what degree. But they can't like that.

I wonder if anyone's job is in any real jeopardy. Specifically Snyder.

I realize I'm not a huge fan of Snyder, but one has to believe that a "Sucker Punch" quality sequel could be devastating for DC's future.

And you know they aren't gonna aim all guns at Nolan. I'm not even sure how much input/influence he hand on Man of Steel, anyway.

Maybe Goyer's in some hot water, too?

But, yeah, if they stick with Snyder and he botches the sequel, that'll be hell to rebound from. They'll almost have to reboot all over again.

Though, I've seen that they're already moving ahead with JL plans based on this version of Supes. There are tons of implications in this whole thing.
