heck, with nearly a decade's worth of films that have presented us reluctant or antiheroes as being the top dogs of the film industry, I think it's time to go back to the roots when it comes to presenting heroes in a traditional and more honest sense, and who better to do so than Superman?
Yeah, personally, I've just gotten to a point where I'm rather tired of watching blockbusters tinged with darkness and cynicism. I think that is part of why I am dreading Star Trek Into Darkness so much. I'm tired of stories about terrorism and corruption. When I read Jamie characterizing STID as a "a giant 9/11-Iraq War conspiracy film", my heart just sank knowing that the movie would be painting humanity as having changed little in 300 years. I was really hoping we would get some classic Trek optimism and a story about a better future. At least, Man of Steel seems to be the film I need right now.
