Too lazy/busy studying/drunk to post links right now, but I guess this will be the Superman: Man Of Steel movie thread, considering discussion is now eating up the Lounge and Movie threads
So far the release date is “Holiday 2012” unless the Aztecs were right.
Zack “300/Dawn of the Dead/Watchmen” Snyder is directing with David “Batman/Blade” Goyer writing, and Chris “Batman” Nolan producing.
General Zod is listed as the main villain. No word yet of Luthor (or Brainiac, considering Zod is involved).
So what is everybody thinking? Hopes? Fears? Superbabies???
I for one think this will actually work well, I just hope they’re smart enough to setup future Superman movies. A major complaint I hear frequently is “nobody knows who Brainiac/Mongol/Darkseid is”, so setting one up early (Zod discussing Brainiac for instance) would be helpful. But seriously, this is the wikipedia era, and people can just fucking wiki a name they hear or character they barely see, in a movie.
Zod vs Supes means we can hopefully see some CGI laden fight scenes, that will blow us away, and can come close to capturing the epic battles Kal-El has faced in the comics.
Luthor in the background rather as a main villain would be a great way to use the character, similar to his usage in the comics.
FYI i also considered calling this thread “THIS…IS…KRYPTON!!!”
