Re: Is Man of Steel the 'Godfather' of Comic Book Films?
Oh yes, I remember that at one point TDK was The Godfather and Avengers was the new Star Wars. Oh, and Hiddleston's Loki was as good as Ledger's Joker so it had to be nominated for an Oscar.
MOS is as unfaithful to the comics as any other superhero movie, and then some. And it was as serious as any of the Nolan bat-movies. And the cheese level was as low as in Nolan's movies as well. The action was good, but it has been so in many other movies.
Acting-wise nothing came close to Al Pacino or, let alone, Marlon Brando.
