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.
^ Funny you say that, because Iron man 3 is looking set to become the biggest and most successful solo hero Marvel movie yet, and it is going to be the darkest one so far.
IM 3 is trending and it will open huge.
