We’re only a few weeks away from the release of Man of Steel. I can’t imagine the pressure Zack Snyder and company are feeling. For the most part, I think knowing that Christopher Nolan is serving as producer after completing his Dark Knight trilogy has washed the bad taste of Bryan Singer‘s Superman Returns out of many Superman fans’ mouths. But there are still a lot of variables at play with Snyder’s Superman movie.
When it comes to super heroes, I’ve never been much of a fan of Superman. He’s too powerful, too indestructible. His story has never been one to really interest me. In fact, when it was first announced, I really hoped this movie would put Supes in a 1920’s Metropolis with a dark noir story, maybe with gangsters. Judging from the trailers, though, it looks like Man of Steel will be a better fit.
As far as acting goes, I haven’t seen Henry Cavill in anything and I’ve never been a big fan of Kevin Costner, but the trailers for Man of Steel ease my nerves about their casting. As far as Michael Shannon playing Zod is concerned, I can’t express my excitement for him. His talent in Boardwalk Empire is really incredible, if occasionally underused. Even his work in an over-the-top, ridiculous movie like Premium Rush is fun to watch. I think Michael Shannon will prove to be the difference if Man of Steel doesn’t deliver in other areas.
Not a big fan of the superman movies, but I don’t think they’ve ever been done right. I can’t wait for this one.
I hope it’s great. And I’m curious to see what DC is planning when it comes to the Justice League movie.
MAN OF STEEL!!! Why not post the newest trailer?
Honestly, I haven’t seen the latest trailer. Lol. I’m kind of hesitant about watching too many trailers before a release (weird, since I post weekly trailers). Plus, I didn’t know there was a newer one. lol.
Just one last trailer you must see it, Zod oriented 😀
