If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Ok, Last summer we had THE DARK KNIGHT RISES which was ok, This summer we get the MAN OF STEEL. Ok, I understand these are iconic characters but it seems like hollywood only wants to throw these 2 characters at us and the whole DC Universe is bigger than Superman and Batman. So here's my suggestion for a GOOD Superman movie since I have a feeling MAN OF STEEL won't be any good.
First of all, the Villains. I know Superman does have some pretty lame villains, but TV and animation have done them justice. It seems like a live-action movie just wants to use the SAME played out Lex Luthor and General Zod. How about Brainiac, Mzzpklyk, Metallo, Darkseid, and yes, even Doomsday? Maybe Superman can fight a gang of criminals with high-powered weapons like Bruno Mannheim and Intergang. Even Toyman can pose a threat of done right. But NO, we get tired ass Lex and Zod. YAWN!
Next, the pairing of Zack Snyder and Christopher Nolan. I'm still on the fence about this. Zack's style is pretty out there and I think it clashes with Nolan's "realism" Besides, after TDKR i don't think DC/Warner Bros. should be giving Nolan free range to do what he wants. He may be a visionary director/producer but he doesn't know shit about COMICS!
And finally, the casting. Ok, I can see Henry Cavil as Superman/Clark Kent but Amy Adams as Lois Lane? Really? Lawrence Fishburne as Perry White? Ok, the made Nick Fury black why not good ol' Perry? The only casting I completely agree with is Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Ma & Pa Kent. I'm hoping this movie delivers, especially with Marvels movies going full steam ahead. I like those characters and I like the DC universe. I wanna see MAN OF STEEL do well but so far all signs point to suckville. What do you guys think? Is MAN OF STEEL gonna put Superman back on top or is it just another SUPERMAN RETURNS?
